Should I Spend Donuts On Gil’s Jay G Deal?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The snow may be gone but the party’s just getting started!  Gil arrived in Springfield a couple of days ago with an all new Phatsby of a deal!  Premium…of course.

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks as awesome as this because it’ll be gone soon.  But don’t sweat it!  That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth those donuts and what you might want to hold off on.

Wondering if you should add Jay G’s Gil deal to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this faith healer to your Springfield…


Combo Characters: Jay G and Goosius
Combo Decoration/Buildings:
Jay G’s Mansion and Pool
Donut Price: 225 Dounts
Earns: Mansion earns Earns $300, 30xp/12hrs.  Pool earns 2.25% bonus on all cash and XP.
Size: 12×18 Mansion and Pool (each)
 Mansion : Indolence +20, Pool: Vanity +200

Leaves Stores January 25th

-Mansion is a unique building with a LOT of attention to detail. Looks awesome
-Comes with two characters.  One with a full set of tasks and the other’s an NPC.
-Pool offers a decent bonus %, considering everything else you get with the combo (for the donuts spent)
-Jay G has some fun tasks, one of which involves Goosius

-Not voiced
-Still a pricey donut offer
-Mansion and the pool are both MASSIVE in side.  You’ll need a lot of open space to place them.

Final Thought
I like this one.  You get a lot in this bundles for the donuts.  Do I wish it was cheaper?  Yes. 225 donuts is a steep price to pay for a 1 off character.  BUT the Mansion design (and the pool) is a decent trade off.  I’d say if you’re a premium player consider picking this one up.

The one downside with this combo (Aside from the price) is that Jay G is a one off character.  So Freemium players, if you have a ton of donuts at the ready you may want to consider this one.  But if you’re saving up for a classic character already in the store or one that may hit with the next event…pass.

Of course in the end it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do.  And I can tell you as a premium player, I picked him up almost immediately. Just remember this is limited time , and will be leaving our stores next week.  So be sure to make your final decision before he’s gone from our games for good. (

Here’s a look at his tasks.

  1. Passed like the Ep but it’s a rip off
    Me well I’m gonna wait for it to return for a discount they always do
    At some point and if it don’t who cares I would never pay that much
    For a one off after all he ain’t Hank Scorpio
    I’d rather get Herb

  2. I got it because of Baz Luhrmann.


  3. I really wish EA would list what’s being offered in a Gil Deal! You definitely canNOT always tell what you’re getting just from an image. For instance, with this particular deal, if I didn’t visit this website, I’d have no clue that the Pool & Mansion are, in fact, separate ‘buildings’, nor know if the Goose was a PC, a NPC, or a Deco! I mean, even just knowing that some part of the bundle gives a Bonus % & how much $$ & XP it generates per xx hour would be helpful! Is this information there, but hiding? I would expect to have it pop up when you tap it, like with any other item in the Store, but that doesn’t happen on my (Android) phone. 😢

    Having said that, I *do* really like this bundle (even though I haven’t seen the episode it’s from) and it’s actually NOT that pricey compared to other Gil Deals, considering what comes with it! I may splurge & buy a few Donuts to get enough to buy it. Or at least a few Golden Scratchers & have my fingers crossed while scratching them! 😄I got 168 donuts from 4 tickets during the Winter Event, which enabled me to get Rabbi K…perhaps lightening will strike twice? 😉

  4. I might hold off on this deal when it could return again with a rebate like with the giant snow globe from the winter event, though 225 donuts for 2 characters, a building and a decoration is a decent price for a gil deal because he offered some decorations for the same price in the past.

  5. I think I’m gonna gamble and say they’ll offer this again down the road and it’ll be a better deal. Seems to be the case lately with older stuff you may have missed out on.

  6. Anybody else get a small update this morning? (only about 7gb)…now my entry screen is solid green with just “The Simpsons” header…no graphics or sky finger…weird…


  7. I collect and buy donuts. I have every character offered in the last three years of playing. Every character has at least one job that is fun. When updates come up and a unique character can help, I am so glad that I already have it I just need more land to display my Springfield better.
    Fun game to play and enjoy That is ALWAYS important! FUN!

  8. Is anyone else just a bit annoyed that along with the nice Springfield heights expansion, they’ve put the price up for every donut pack? Pretty bad move on EA’s part, it was expensive as it is but now it’s just unreasonable.


  9. As a “farmium” player, I’m at the point now where I can probably afford all limited time characters, so I picked him up even though he’s overpriced. I waited until I unlocked the 2 SH strips and put it all there. Still grinding my SH supplies. Those yoga mats are killing me, and I don’t have Duffman.
    I’ve got a list of about 20 permanent premium characters that I don’t have yet


  10. Tempting, and I got found of the episode, but I’m saving my donuts in possible new and returning female characters for the possible Valentine’s day event.
