Hey Howdy Hey Turkey Tappers!

It’s finally Turkey Day here in the US!  And you know what that means…Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, Apple and Pumpkin pie, football, stretchy pants and insane sales at the mall!

You may notice things a little quiet around here today (you can always check out the details of the Thanksgiving (Most Dangerous Game) Event here) as we take the day to celebrate the holiday with our families.


However, we couldn’t let a day dedicated to being thankful go by without a special THANK YOU to YOU…our AMAZING readers!  We are so thankful for each and every one of you that take the time to read our posts and comment.  So from Patric, Wookiee, Bunny and myself…THANK YOU!!  You guys rock and we couldn’t do this without you!

Here at Addicts we’ve all been blessed in so many ways and we hope you have too. In that spirit we’d like to invite you to take a moment and let us know in the comments below what you’re thankful for this Thanksgiving! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Well, before we start to carve into the Turkey (or Bunducken) we’d like to take just one more moment of your time. As I mentioned above, today’s a day to reflect on all you’re thankful for in life & in that spirit, if you can, as we do each year we’d like to invite you to donate to a charity that’s near and dear to our hearts, Friends of Buyijja.  A fantastic charity founded by our own Patric to deliver “Unconditional Support for the Education and Welfare of Children…in an effort to deliver hope and opportunity.”  Patric talked about it a bit in last week’s Addicts Live.  You can find out more about Friends of Buyijja by clicking the link below, and if you can we’d like to encourage you to make a donation to an amazing charity that’s doing amazing work.

Freemium items..(Don’t question, just buy them)

rustytheclownparadeballoon_menuRusty the Clown Balloon– $5,400

Tapped_Out_Blinky_BalloonBlinky Balloon– $16,500

thanksgivingballoonsantaslittlehelper_menuSanta’s Little Helper Balloon– $30,000

And now for the returning Premium Items…

sacagawea_lisa_puritan_flanders_comboThanksgiving Outfit Bundle: Puritan Flanders & Sacagawea Lisa

Donut Price: 80 Donuts, 15 Donut Rebate, Net 65 Donuts
What Do They Do?: Premium skins for Lisa and Flanders
Previous Posts: So, when these were first released they were free as part of the Thanksgiving questlines.  Sacagawea Lisa in 2013 and Puritan Flanders in 2014.  So previous posts would just refer to their questlines as they pertained to the event and how you unlock them.
My Opinion on them Now: 65 donuts for two premium skins for regular characters isn’t a bad price, IF you don’t already have premium skins for them. Otherwise I’d pass on these two.  I almost always forget I have them

King Size Homer Bundle: King-Sized Homer & Work from Home Station 

Donut Price: 110 Donuts Combined, or 60 Donuts Each
What Do They Do?: King-Size Homer is now a Premium Skin for Homer, with some hilarious animated tasks.  The Work From Home Station is a decoration that King-Sized Homer will use, however it does not offer a bonus % or earn a payout.
Previous Posts: Station Should I Buy; King size Homer
My Opinion On Them Now: King Size Homer was free last year, he was a Thanksgiving Prize, so it’s frustrating that he’s now premium.  I do enjoy this skin and the Work from Home Station, but I think they’re a bit over priced in this combo for what it is/does.  So unless you’ve really been wanting King Size Homer, I’d pass on this combo.

ico_stor_single_balloonbundleThanksgiving Balloon Bundle: Bart Balloon, Snowball II Balloon, Stampy Ballon & the Grumple Balloon

Donut Price: 80 Donuts
What Do They Do?: Fun Decorations for Springfield.  Each earns a bonus %, Snowball II- .50% bonus on all cash and XP; The Grumple- 2% bonus on all cash and XP; Stampy- 2% bonus on all cash and XP; Bart- 2% bonus on all cash and XP.  So in the end, 6.5% bonus for 80 Donuts.  GREAT donut to bonus % ratio.
Previous Posts: Should I Buy BalloonsBart Balloon
My Opinion On Them Now: I’ve always liked the balloons, they make great decorations at various places in Springfield..and they just remind me of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  This is a GREAT price for a 6.5% bonus return…I’d pick them up.  And you can purchase multiples. 

caesarspowwowcasino_menu tribechief_victory_poseCaesar’s Pow-Wow Casino w/Tribal Chief

Donut Price: 150 Donuts, 50 Donuts Back, Net 100 donuts
What Does It Do: Premium building and Character Combo
Previous Posts: Should I Buy
My Opinion On Them Now: I’ve always liked this combo and my opinion remains unchanged. And with the rebate it’s one of those combos that becomes 100 donuts or less. That are a too good to pass up  But with the recent Casino Event AND the Casino that you can get with Johnny Tightlips it does bump it down.  So if you already have a bunch of casinos..pass. 

pigglysupersmorg_menu Jacqueline BouvierPiggly’s Super Smorg w/ Mrs. Bouvier

Donut Price: 140 Donuts, 45 Donuts Back, Net 95 Donuts
What Does it Do: Typical Building/Character Combo
Previous Post: Should I Buy
My Opinion On It Now: I couldn’t imagine Springfield without Mrs. Bouvier.  So I like this combo…and her tasks are pretty amusing. And that price, with the rebate, it becomes less than 100 donuts for a premium character/building combo.  Grab it! 

Heimlich Machine with Puritan NedHeimlich Machine

Donut Price: 60 Donuts
What Does It Do: Animated decoration, that Puritan Flanders (from image above) has a task at.  Also earns a 2.5% bonus on all cash and XP.
Previous Post:Should I Buy
My Opinion On It Now: HILARIOUS if you have Puritan Flanders, and didn’t spend donuts for him.  Otherwise, I’d pass.

Sorry guys I can only go by the files on this stuff because I own everything and this looks like one of those times something was in the files and EA changed their minds…

caesarspowwowcasinosign_menuPow-wow Casino Sign

Donut Price: 35  Dounts, 15 Donuts back, Net 20 Donuts
What Does It Do: Animated sign for Springfield. Earns a 2% bonus on all cash and XP.
Previous Post: Should I Buy
My Opinion On It Now: Meh. Good buy at 20 donuts for 2% bonus, but it’s still just a sign.  So you may want to pass…

And that’s what has made a comeback for this Thanksgiving!  So hopefully those who are celebrating today, will find some time to tap in between bites of Turkey and all those tryptophan induced naps!

We hope you have a wonderful day, and a great start to the holiday season!

Happy Tapping!

  1. Alissa, thanks as always for the detailed prize breakdown and your opinions, which mostly matters in my decision to buy or not buy. Was on the fence for Mrs. Bouvier. When I saw your SIB post, and above, I decided if I am going to get one premium item this whole month (including Black Friday sale), I will get her. With 4 hours to spare, I bought her. Hilarious tasks.

    I also love how the Piggly Building looked like when I visited neighbours, so happy that I now can proclaim I have one too!

    P.S. Still holding on to spare donuts for the day when Duffman is available at a discount!

    P.S.S. There’s a hot spring decoration. I liked how it looked but do you know which character uses it, other than the recently released Grant Connor? Had wanted to buy then Mrs. Bouvier came along so changed my mind!


  2. Ummm I don’t have those freemium balloons listed in my store, and if they were yesterday, weren’t there then either… 😦


  3. Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Was going to get Pow wow casino but I’m only 1 donut short of Springfield gorge which seems cool just for Homer task and half price. Then with with 5 more bonuts I’ll be able to buy Rancho Relaxo


    • Keep in mind, the final price is from rebate, not discount. In other words, you need to have enough donuts to pay the gross price, not just enough for the net cost.

      You might have already been factoring that in, but I thought I’d mention it, just in case you haven’t noticed that bit of info in Alissa’s post.


  5. Yay, grabbed the Indian Chief and the granny deals right away cuz they’re cheap. When black friday hits, I’ll grab three more character building combos. Lol.


  6. I actually feel the opposite about the casino. The fact that we now have so many casinos made this a must buy for me. It makes my gambling part of Springfield look better.


  7. Although we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving, I am thankful that once upon a time I was trying to find neighbours and not only did I find them but I also found this place – and I’ve never left 😄

    Thank you to all who make this such an amazing place to hang out, but especially to Alissa: thank you for what you have created!

    Happy thanksgiving to all celebrating it!

  8. Raah, I forgot to give a shout out to Wookiee in my previous post – that was a BAD oversight, so special thanks given herewith!


  9. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone across the pond, I hope you all have a great time with good food and harmonious family Fun! Alissa, Bunny and Patrick, thank you so much for all your hard work in keeping this site going and for keeping a lot of people sane. Enjoy Turkey Day!


  10. I am thankful for Alissa and all of the others, moderators and commenters alike, who make this site the wonderful place that it is!

    I snapped up the two character combos immediately…great deals! I was a little disappointed that the game made me place both of them right away…last year, when I got some character combos, I was able to put them straight into inventory and take them out individually, whenever I wanted something to do. I hope it will work that way for the black Friday deals.

    I didn’t realize that the balloon group offered such a good bonus multiplier…the problem is, I don’t want to display them. Does anyone know if they’re hideable behind buildings?

    • The building has to be high enough 🙂


      • Thanks for your sage advice. 😛

        Actually, I was able to hide them behind some Springfield Heights buildings. But then I ended up taking Snowball out of there because, when I got the animal shelter this morning, I decided to flank it with a Santa’s Little Helper balloon on one side and the Snowball one in the other (to represent genetic dogs and cats).

  11. I had to buy the Springfield falls to get a chance to buy the Casino. Then had to buy the Casino to get the Smorg. After buying the Smorg, the Casino sign became available, which I think is a good buy for 2%. BTW, for those complaining about rebates: just remember you have been earning a percentage or cash/xp all this time (which can be converted into donuts).


  12. Caesar’s Pow-Wow Casino? Santa’s Little ?Gino/It’s a Wonderful Knife? What I buy?


  13. King Sized Homer was released a year ago……It seems like only yesterday! That is SCARY!!!

  15. None of the above items are available for me to buy ! 😔


    • Try a reboot of your device or go to Krustyland and back. /Maybe that will start it.

    • I had everything with a timer showing 22 hours remaining. It was late so I thought I will pick up the things I want in the morning. Morning rolls round, only the balloons are available (with 9 hours remaining) and now I’m sad. I’ve been waiting for ages for Mrs Bouvier 😪 Visit to Krustyland and reboot didn’t help.


    • Doh! I was looking under the premium tab and it never occurred to me there was a thanksgiving tab. Mrs Bouvier purchased 👍 Strangely now all the thanksgiving items are showing in the main buy section again.
