Should I Spend Donuts on Mr. Sparkle Billboard?

With the new Premium items just added to our menu, it may be overwhelming trying to decide whether to buy them or to pass on them. With that limited-time label on items I know it can be tempting to just buy everything you can. But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add the Mr. Sparkle Billboard to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm button, let’s break down the Pros and Cons of adding this decoration to your Springfield.

Decoration: Mr. Sparkle Billboard
Donut Price: 30 donuts
Unique?: No, you can have as many as you want
Bonus: 0.75% (bonus cash and XP to all tasks)
Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.025%
Conform-o-Meter Points: +10 Consumerism
Where Can I Place It?: The Mr Sparkle Billboard is one of the few decorations that can be placed on your land, on the beach and even on the Squidport Boardwalk! 

Final Thought: At 30 Donuts the Mr. Sparkle Billboard isn’t the most expensive decoration in Springfield BUT at .75% bonus pay out that’s not exactly the best payout in the game either.  It is a relatively small item to place in town and admittedly I did purchase this (only 1).  However, if you’re limited on your donuts (I happened to stock up quite a bit when Ol’ Gil was around…got to love Christmas Gift Cards!) you may want to pass on this one.  There are much better items you can purchase for relatively the same amount of donuts & better bonus payouts.  The one nice thing about this is it does add to your Consumerism rating, which is one of the hardest in the game to max out.

Whatever you decide on the billboard just remember this is a Limited-Time  item so there once it’s gone it’s gone!

What do you think?  Will you be paying 30 donuts for the Mr. Sparkle Billboard?

  1. I bought 2, but as soon as I realised it contruibutes to consumerism I picked up 3 more. It covers me for future increases, given EA don’t typically seem to release items to allow us to get to 5 stars.

  2. I haven’t bought a decoration before (still waiting for the Observatory/tire fire deal that are in the files – I really want the tire fire!). Oh wait, yeah I bought the police car (Obedience rating + 2%) and three trashcan fire (3 donuts… I mean – why not 😉 ).
    But apart from that… to sum it up: I am not a premium decoration guy.

    BUT, the Sparkle Billboard was one I couln’t possibly miss out! OK, it’s 0,75% only, but that doesn’t matter. I REALLY wanted that! (The 10 Consumerism point gave me the final kick though).
    I am not a fan of the game, but a fan of The Simpsons. And that reference is really cool!
    Plus: I have a “Springfield Highway” in my Springfield. And that billboard fits perfectly near the highway! 🙂
