Hey Howdy Hey Gift Grabbers!
You enjoying the first 3 days of the Christmas Update? Are you staying on track with your Gift Card Grabbing? (check out Bunny’s Calendar to see if you’re on the right track)
We’ve been reading each and every one of your comments (we LOVE hearing from you guys, keep them coming!) and I wanted to take a moment to address a couple of questions that have come up over and over again in the comments. A lot of you are asking “How Do I Get the Grumple?”, “I Want to Buy Donuts, Any truth to the Gil rumor?” & “Is EA planning any Christmas surprises? Like Thanksgiving.” Well….we’ve finally gotten answers from our resident IT nerd and we’re happy to share all of the Addicts confirmed (from game files) info with our favorite fellow Addicts!
First up…let’s talk everyone’s favorite salesman Gil. According to the files (viewed with our own bloodshot eyes) Gil WILL be making an appearance this event with a DONUT OFFER! (woohoo!) It won’t be a discounted donut offer instead it looks as though it will be a bonus donut offer. Similar to the deal that ran last Christmas, offering 25% more donuts with every pack. (so 12 donuts will become 15) Looks as though it’s a one day only special and will ONLY be available on December 25th. So if you have plans to drop some “dough” on those pink frosted donuts, you may just want to wait until Christmas to do so. You’ll get more frosting for your dough!
Next up the deal with the Grumple and special bonus planned. Warning SPOILERS ahead. If you want to be surprised (and see what Santa brings you) don’t click read more…but if you’re like me…and enjoy searching for your Christmas presents before they’re under the tree click read more to find out what Santa’s bringing! I knew I wasn’t the only one searching for those Christmas presents! Busted!
The Grumple Who Stole Your Donuts
Ok, so maybe he’s really not going to steal your donuts but for those wondering just how the heck you unlock the Grumple look no further. Much like the Grinch…the Grumple will unlock on Christmas Eve (December 24th). The other good news? The Grumple comes with a COMPLETE list of tasks (and a quest line)…so he will not be an unplayable character (woohoo!)
Update: Sorry guys I forgot to mention this in the original post. The Grumple will unlock for purchase on December 24th. He will be a premium character and cost 120 donuts (yikes! Ok so maybe he will steal your donuts!)
EA is giving tappers a special bonus on Christmas morning…and no it’s not a 1 year membership in the “Jelly of the Month Club” so no need to send Cousin Eddie to kidnap anyone…no no instead EA is awarding DOUBLE event currency on Christmas Day (December 25th). So be sure to “tap” on Christmas Day to get double the gift cards and double the fun!
And there you have it Gift Grabbing Tappers…all of the inside information on the Grumple, Gil & Gifts!
