Glitch/Bug Alert: There’s apparently a bug going around with Jimbo that several of you are reporting. If you purchase him he disappears from your Springfield. If that happens, contact EA and let them know.

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Looks like we’ve got ourselves a little in-game update for donuts to keep us busy over the weekend!
When you start up your Springfield you’ll see our good friend Gil’s back…and this time with an end of school promotion for us all.
As always more details as we go through them….details of what Gil has in store for us below…
Just a thought…usually updates like this make me think that EA’s biding time because they’re working on something else. Especially because this offer is only for the weekend, it makes me think we’ll see something much bigger early next week. So try not to get discouraged with this little update…since everything costs donuts. I think we’ll see bigger and better things next week 🙂
As mentioned above when you first start up your Springfield you’ll see Gil hanging around again.
He’s got some Gil deals he’s offering up this weekend and here’s what you’ll see when you tap on him:
Gil: Aw, school’s almost out for the summer. That means greedy little teenagers taking all the choice summer jobs away from the hardworking Gils of the world! Why can’t they just leave my job at Kinko’s alone!? Oh, who am I kidding? They know way more about the print and copy business than I ever will. Unless…. I make some sales using one of those Preferred Buyer programs to reimburse some donuts. That should keep those kids distracted for a few days while I learn how to print double-sided coil bind!
If you don’t take the offer you’ll see…
Gil: Hey, that’s okay. If you’re going to be homeless, summer is probably the best time to do it.
The Overall Deal Ends on June 15th (Monday) at 13:00 GMT (9am EDT)
Note: from the files it looks like each day will cause some items to end and bring new ones. So pay special attention to your timers in the store! Also, new items will be added each day. You can see what’s up next in your store…it’ll tell you when the next batch will unlock.
So this is a buy items with donuts, get donuts back deal. We’ve had these before. Let’s breakdown what’s in the store….
Each NEW Day starts (and the previous day ends) at 1300 GMT (9am EDT). So again…pay attention to those timers in the store!
