New Gil Premium Rebate Deals Launched

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….

Gil halloween promo

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…

  1. I still wish they would offer Comic Book Guys wife Kumiko again.

  2. Went to krustyland. Small dialog. Now all heights payouts are x4. Including the minigames. Haven’t seen this mentioned. Also goes to oct 4th

  3. Hmm, I wonder if Gil is working under cover for EA.. 😛

    Reason? Gil has a lot of items on offer (a lot of which are tempting to buy)
    and Gil knows Halloween will be here soon.. (which will bring more new items)
    So… we will need to spend more money to buy more sprinkles/dougnuts to be able to afford everything we want..
    oh Gil, how could you do this to us..

  4. I was wondering what happened to the jet engine bikes, and now I know. Given I’m fully on board with KEM farming (as of 3-4 weeks ago) and using my extra donuts on jet engine bikes, this is a no brainer. When the 2nd round of items becomes available, I’ll be spending ALL my donuts (~330 by then) on Jet Engine Bikes. That should net me at least 16 (32% bonus) and take me to ~315% XP multiplier (plus SH bouns).

    KNOWING I’ll have no donuts left and KNOWING I will want to buy something premium on this upcoming event is still not going to stop me. I think I need help…

  5. I’m going to pass. My town is already overloaded with commercial buildings, and after the removal/Change of level-ups, the Conform-o-Meter as well as the Bonus percentage have become nearly useless. There isn’t a way to drop in the conform-o-meter (except for vandalism) and at max level, barely anything costs $$$ anymore (except for landmass). It’s always event currency or donuts nowadays.

  6. I think it’s time I get a Jet Engine Bike and a BBQ Pig!

    I love these SIBs. Super helpful. Thanks!!!!

  7. My game shows that Swanky Fish is also going to be available during round 2. May just be my game, but thought I’d pass it on.

  8. I’ve been working on saving enough donuts to get the Powers house to place next to the Simpsons. As the Powers house is not a limited time offer I shall be purchasing the “cool brown house” and using my rebate towards the Mapple store as I’ve coveted both for years! So excited for Halloween to be released.

  9. Looking forward to grabbing Bookaccinos. That’s always been on my list of buildings I wanted to see in the game. Just kinda wondering how big it’s going to be

  10. The BBQ Pig is really the only thing tempting me here, The episode were Lisa becomes a Vegetarian is one of my favorite episodes. However I will probably just pass on it and save up for Halloween.

  11. It’s obvious to me that EA is trying to make a few bucks here. Here’s how: They’re hoping that you’ll blow all of your doughnuts on these “deals”, and thus use up most if not all of your doughnuts. Then the Halloween event will be released with all sorts of cool premium stuff that you’ll just have to have. So you’ll plunk down a bunch of real cash for more doughnuts. Natch.

    So if you want to save some $, then start farming KEM’s now (if not sooner). 😉

  12. AGHHHHH How on earth am I going to have donuts for halloween and/or black friday/christmas If I have good deals like this happening???? I wanted the cool brown house and at 70 for Homer and the house I won’t be able to pass it up, I also got the Century flower, I’m waiting to get a few more jet engine bikes to. I like a nice Springfield but am an XP hunter and a house farmer. I have the house farm on the bottom(far right) and the extra % items and the track construction stuff in the Heights area and the rest is made to look nice.So many problems…..

  13. What episode did cool homer come from. If I watch it I might want it.

  14. So I had about 400 donuts or so saved up for Halloween. Then I bought the pretty pink Lard Lad and the beach house. I’m back up to 270 and bamn! Now this Gil deal. Ughh. I see myself buying more donuts for Halloween.
    I’m totally on the EA hook now. Lol.
    I want the Jet bike. I am also tempted on the golf course to go with my big ugly pro shop I regret buying.

    • I caved and bought the golf course, as I’ve long had just a big patch of green grass behind my country club. They look great together, and even better with Springfield Lake. For 60 donuts, no regrets.

  15. That condo was way bigger than I expected

  16. It’s funny how Alternate Cool Homer left the game at the end of the Sci-Fi event, and the actual Cool Homer costume returns in this Gil Deal, a few weeks later.
