11/28 Thanksgiving-a-Roony!- Gil’s Back!

You ALL should get the Update now to correct the issue of the Leftovers. Not sure if all will see the *(null) one fixed just yet. But the Update will auto hit your games. ūüėČ (Remember if you see Bart, it may because EVERYONE is trying to get the update, so be patient)

UPDATE BUNNY: Looks like many of you are running into another issue. (It is odd as it did not impact any of my games.) Yesterday’s task ended with coming back today for Leftovers. Part of the Leftovers dialog today and task is to again have Lisa and Ned Have a Peace Feast, but the option is locked up. I am currently testing a few things and will report back.¬†

I am in process of trying to contact EA, and also started a forum thread on EA. Please feel free to add to it and open a ticket with EA on the issue. Will update once I hear more back. (I am also looking into the **null** self punishment issue)

UPDATE BUNNY 10:30 AM EST: After a very very long conversation with some reps poking round in my game, they still are unable to isolate issue. So…off to a patch they go. They are looking into the entire “Leftover” questline that should have triggered properly as well as Ned’s task turning *(null). Hopefully they can get a patch out soon. In the meantime, keep flooding the forums with your info so it keeps it on top.¬†

UPDATE BUNNY 2:00PM EST: It seems they almost have issue isolated and hope a patch will be out soon for all these issues. No ETA as of yet on it, just once they got it all in order it will hit our games. So hang in there. This one is wide spread. 

 

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers and Happy Black Friday!

Looks like they’re celebrating Black Friday in Springfield too as Ol’ Gil is in town! ¬†BUT he’s not offering discounted donuts…instead he’s offering donuts rebates!

2014-11-28 09.26.00

So here’s the deal…every hr on the hr Gil is offering premium items with a rebate. ¬†You’ll still have to pay full price for them..but then he’ll give you some donuts back if you do. ¬†The kicker is….Each item is ONLY offered for 1hr. ¬†If you miss that hour…you miss out on the item.

So if you’ve been waiting for something, now’s a great chance to get it. ¬†Here’s a list of what will be offered each hour…and what the rebate back is. ¬†(sorry I missed the first hour…that pesky Turkey made me sleepy!)

All times in Eastern US.   (Which is 5hrs behind GMT):

Note…we will NOT be doing a specific should I Buy for this. ¬†We’ve covered every item offered in our Should I Buy posts…since they’re all regular items. ¬†If you see an item you like & want…buy it & get the donuts back. ¬†Now’s the best time to buy items you’ve been waiting to get. ¬†I’ve linked the should I buys in the list itself & I’ve put in Bold some items you might not want to miss out on. ¬†

Note: If you already have something that’s unique…you won’t see it listed for you. ¬†I think I got all of the items…BUT if I’m missing something please let me know. ¬†Also…it looks like the deals recycle around once time has passed. ¬†So you may get a second chance at something. ¬†But ONLY a second chance…they’ll only recycle around once. ¬†

And that’s the list…so not really ALL weekend…but basically today (Friday) and tomorrow (Saturday).

What do YOU think of Gil’s offer? ¬†See anything you like? ¬†Anything you’ll be taking him up on? ¬†Sound off i the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!

    Currently at 131 donuts. A botched purchase for Otto back when he was only 90 donuts left me with Blu Haired Lawyer. EA was kind enough to give me 30 free donuts after the mixup though. So I was saving for Otto this Black Friday but missed out on him yet again. I’ll probably just save up for Duffman and the brewery instead.

  4. So I bought Professor Frink when he was discounted. I saw he has a quest line but I’m not getting it. He has jobs assigned to him with the ! but there is no dialogue…. is this normal or a glitch?

  6. Bought manjula. Now I am debating CCL or Sherri and Terri. I have enough for both, but with the stupid rebate, i don’t have the donuts for both upfront.

  8. I have bought a few items, some I received the rebates, others did not, bought the camp and dialog said I was to receive 50 donuts in rebate, but did not, anyone else having this issue?

  9. I keep seeing comments about sprinkles, and I play daily and check in on tsto regularly, but I’ve never encountered them in the game. What are these sprinkles?

  10. I am also questioning the rebates. I got the Gil thank-you but did not see anything about getting donuts back. I think I have paid full price in two different games as the math isn’t working out.

  11. This promotion has me so tempted but whenever I crunch the numbers I talk myself out of buying donuts. I’d love to get Barney but 250 donuts costs something like $15! Sometimes you can get a whole game for $15… Earning the donuts without spending cash is crazy slow though. Am i too cheap? I’m afraid that once I justify buying donuts once I’ll do it all the time…

    • I have been playing this game since it came out, and have never spent money on donuts. I bought the sleep easy motel today with the rebate, sad I missed Kamp Krusty, but in that whole time I have accumulated about 600 donuts for free. I can’t justify spending real money either, at the end of the day, it is just a game, I wouldnt recomend spending real money.
