Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Overnight Gil arrived in Springfield…this time offering up premium items at a semi-discounted price. You know everyone’s favorite…rebate offers. Spend more up front, but get it back in the end. In most cases…it’s still a good deal 🙂
Let’s take a look at what Gil’s offering this time around….
When you launch your game you’ll see Gil’s back waving his arms, like he just don’t care….
Quimby: The city is broke, people! We are hemorrhaging money and need cash fast, or we’ll all be selling our likeness to T-shirt companies. But Moe, not you.
Burns: I could pull this city up by its bootstraps….
Lisa: No! We will not turn to you again to solve our financial crises.
Gil: You could all turn to Gil! Mostly ’cause I lost that vertebrae in my spine that makes ME able to turn to YOU. Big Business to the rescue! Stock your Springfield with corporate juggernauts and get donuts back with every purchase. Ha-cha-cha!
Quimby: When does ‘er the traditional political “palm greasing” come into play?
Gil: Every franchise contract comes with a standard government bribe.
Quimby: That is very comforting.
And then the deal will launch….
There are 5+ days till this deal ends, which means it ends Tuesday October 4th….
However, each set of items are only offered for a limited amount of days…the first round leaves on October 1st, when wave 2 launches.
Here’s what’s included in the first Wave…
Again Wave 1 LEAVES October 1st. So if you see something you like, grab it before Saturday…

And there you have it my friends..the breakdown and details on the current Gil offer.
However…before you spend your donuts I’m going to remind you…Halloween is coming. So if you don’t have a lot of donuts to spend, don’t get too tempted because you don’t know what Halloween will bring, premium wise.
