    Sly Strategist Yes, There is an upgrade. But I didn't take it since I hardly buy anything in ME3.

    Gizmo2k Sounds obvious, but if you have enough money (100,000 or 95,000 after applying the discount bonus) save your game, then you can buy two armours from the two stores right next to each other on the Citadel Presidium Commons and get the achievement and reload your save. This lets you buy better things with your money at these stores :)

    HolyHalfDead Just started the game and I have these 3 armors:

    - N7 Defender armor (from N7 Warfare Gear pre-order bonus)
    - Reckoner Knight armor (from playing Kingdoms of Amalur demo)
    - Cerberus Ajax armor (from Alternate Appearance Pack 1 DLC)

    I didn't get this achievement the first time you I accessed the Sirta Supplies store at Huerta Memorial Hospital, even though I did get Shopaholic.

    Like dijonketchup13 points out, you actually have to buy something (a bunch of flowers will do).
