Valentine’s Day Round 2 (Gil’s Back & More!)

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The planes are flying in the air over Springfield but so is love, as Valentine’s Day makes its way into our pocket-sized towns!

Overnight you may have noticed some new (and old) Valentine’s Day items make their way into our TSTO stores, so let’s take a look at today’s “goodies”…

ico_stor_single_valentines2016

So jumping off of last week’s Date Night Mystery Box, EA has released some new items into our games, as well as brought back some old items.  First, on the new side…

When you launch your game today you’ll notice some dialogue from Apu and Marge:

Apu: Ah, Valentine’s Day.  My favorite American holiday of the year.
Marge: Ooh, I’ve never met a romatic Kwik-E-Mart manager.
Apu: And you haven’t now.  I just enjoy overcharging husbands trying to buy last-minute boxes of chocolate for their wives. I’m doing so well I’ve completely run out of candy.
Gil: Perhaps I can be of assistance?

And naturally you’ll find Gil waving his arms like he just don’t care…

Gil Kneeling

When you tap on him you’ll see….

Gil: Ol’ Gil has connections in the candy industry. I worked in the sugar factory production line, keeping that candy coming, right alongside a young lady called Betty.
Cletus: Sugar factory? You must mean my cousin, Dia-Betty!
Gil: Is she still a delicate filly, slender as a railing?
Cletus: Well, she’s eaten a few railings.

And this will launch the new Gil Deal…

dia-betty gil deal

For 225 Donuts you can get Dia-Betty, the Sugar Factory & 650 Sky Credits…

If you refuse the deal, you’ll see:

Cletus: Guess we’ll be missing Dia-Betty this Valentine’s Day.  And she’s not easy to miss!
Gil: Another disappointment!  But I found a candy heart in a storm drain, so at least I’ll be eating dinner.

And if you accept the deal, you’ll see:

Cletus: Dia-Betty, the sugar factory where you used to work is back.
Dia-Betty: Do they still have an opening?
Cletus: Not one you can fit through
Dia-Betty: Well, I’m a gal who always looks for the silver lining.  ‘Cause it reminds me of the foil wrapped around candy bars.

Now before I get into some more details…I just want to quickly remind everyone…IF you refuse the deal, you’ll be able to go back into your store to find it later.  Remember you sometimes have to scroll left and/or right in your stores to find the right icon you’re looking for.  Remember, those store screens do move left/right to reveal more.  They’re not stationary…

You’ll find the deal:

Bring up your store menu and scroll to the left:

2017-02-08-10-19-28

And you’ll find the deal right next to the Date Night Mystery Box (if you have it):

2017-02-08-10-19-32

Now some quick info about the deal:

tsto_motherloving_sugar_co Dia-Betty and the Motherloving Sugar Factory- 225 Donuts, 15×4 in size.  Dia-Betty comes with a questline and a full set of tasks.  And yes, I will be doing a Should I Buy post for her..

And here are some more items included with today’s Valentine’s additions…

  1. Hungry Hun, Uter & the Chocolate Chapel Bundle (it’s a better bargain then the Gil Deal) 😚

    She-She Lounge (Unlocks a permanent 4hr task for Patty, Helen Lovejoy and Ruth Powers. Animated when in use) best bargain out of the bunch 😀

  2. I’ve been waiting for a long time for Dia-Betty to be in the game so I jumped in the deal.
    And I was really happy till I noticed that she doesn’t have any outdoor tasks which really sucks…
    I’m still doing her questline and hopefully an outdoor task will show up.
    But when you buy a Premium Character you expect it to at least be voiced. have an outdoor task or.both.

  3. I bought Hungry Hun right away, mainly because I was waiting for an offer on him to help out with the Monorail tasks, and at a price of 120 donuts (after rebate) for Hungry Hun, Uter, and Chocolate Chapel, you don’t really need a SIB from Alissa (who I guess is super busy due to many requests for SIB) to know this is one of the best premium buys!

    Just note that you need to have 160 donuts (not 120) to take up the offer, then the rebate of 40 donuts will be refunded!

    • Same here. This is arguably the best premium rebate since the Frink+Lab+Ladybot one. I snapped it up without hesitation as well, so now I have Dewey and Uter for my monorail tasks.

      I’ll wait for the event to hit Act 2 to see how much are the new items first before deciding if I want to spend on a few more V-Day mystery boxes. There’s still 4 out of 7 items in there that I want, with Aztec Theater and Der Krazy Kraut at the top of the list, but I really don’t care for the other 3 items.

    • Have you verified that Uter definitely still helps with recycling? I haven’t seen him listed as a premium worker at the recycling plants in quite a while. I wondered if he didn’t pass the company physical and was fired… I’d like to know for sure before spending my donut stash.

  8. The price is absolutely ridiculous! The last deal was the same price but we got a mansion, character, npc, and a pool. Thanks to the article on this site about the previous deals I didn’t make the mistake of settling for less on this deal.

  10. I don’t usually pass on a deal when a character is sold on a rebate.
    Today is no different, hallo Üter! Only now my donut total sits at 64, having also spent 300 a few days ago getting Brandine, Becky and Laura Powers.
    Who’d have thought it’d be valentine’s that offers possibly the best deals in some time.

  11. I am assuming Di – A – Betty has visual tasks?
    I’m on the quest where she’s watching Ned kids so I hope for that price there will be quest s that unlock and that are hilarious. Maybe one where she sings to the whales while eating sweets. FYI ea says you don’t have to buy a whale.

  13. I’m buying anything and everything! OK, maybe not all of the decorations but all the buildings and characters. Happy with everything so far but a little miffed that Le Krusty Burger isn’t paying out premium.
    Also, beware if you’re running everyone on 4hr cycles and trying to rush a few before the flights are ready. Most of these new folk seem to have quest-lines that are full of 4hr tasks. Plan carefully if you don’t want to wait and don’t want to spend donuts.

    Dia Betty is too expensive for my taste, but,
    I don’t seem to be able to find her anymore.

  15. I brought her, usually don’t jump the gun until Should I Buy posts come up, but I really liked the look of her. The Sugar Factory is quite a slim building, and Betty isn’t voiced. At the moment i’m going thru the Quest but she hasn’t got any outdoor tasks – yet.
    If anything I wish they’d made her just ever so much fatter – really accentuate it. But she looks cool woddling around the town… haha.

  16. I just accidentally bought the cooling towers! I opened the menu & somehow must have pressed it. Why isn’t there a button to confirm purchases? They look ok but I was saving up donuts for the event, I’m so frustrated now!

      Go into your settings and turn on your CONFIRM DONUT spending.

          Be forewarned- sometimes it will turn off all by itself.especially when new events/ updates occur.

          • I’ve never had it turn off by itself — but I have found it disturbingly easy to accidentally turn it off, since there is a prominent check box to *encourage* you to turn it back off, in every single donut spend confirmation dialog. One stray tap, and you’re right back where you started; at a minimum, that check box should really be a button to redirect you into the settings screen, to eliminate accidental reactivations.

    • If you go to the store menu there’s a wheel button next to the video icon, click on it and you’ll see a confirm donut box. I had the same thing happen to me

    • Want to add to this, I have had on several occasions when EA sends an update, it also changes my confirm donut spend from on to off. Very frustrating to want to look at an item to see the size and find you just bought it, then go to the settings and see that the latest update changed your settings. Heads up to a major frustration.
