Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
It’s Yard Sale time in Springfield & what’s old is once new again! But, with that limited-time label, and the added pressure of these being some highly coveted items, it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. 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.
So far we’ve broken down the pros and cons of the Mayan Bundles, the pros and cons of the character skins and the pros and cons of the Cool Combo, so now let’s take a look at the decorations of the 2014 Summer Yard Sale.
Wondering if you should add the Mr. Sparkle Billboard or the Ice God to your Springfield? Well before you hit that confirm spend button, let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these bonus earning decorations 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!
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) back when it was initially released during the episode tie-in.
However, if you’re limited on your donuts 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!
Decoration: Ice God
Donut Price: 30 donuts
Unique?: Yes, only 1 per Springfield
Bonus: 2.25% (bonus cash and XP to all tasks)
Bonus % Per Donut Spent: 0.075%
Conform-o-Meter Points: +10 Vanity
Where Can I Place It?: Anywhere in Springfield (just not in the water)
While it may not look like much now, it is a fun statue when the winter time hits Springfield. To me this is a no brainer. If you have the donuts, grab it. The 2.25 bonus% for the 30 donuts spent is the BEST in the game. You won’t find a better % per donut spent! This is a great way to earn extra cash and xp on all tasks and buildings.
Whatever you decide on the Ice God just remember this is a Limited-Time item so there once it’s gone it’s gone!
My best advice for ALL of the items in the Yard Sale, is to see what other items you might be coveting during the Yard Sale and weigh each option BEFORE you make any purchases. The “sale” ends August 4th…so you have some time to make up your mind about what you want to do. 🙂
