Should I Spend Donuts On the Spring Relaxation Bundle (and other Returning Content)?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The spies are invading Springfield!  Yes, the Secret Agent update has hit our games.  We’ve got hacking, drones, dossiers and a shrinking donut bank account because there are LOADS of returning items in our stores just tempting us with those sprinkles!

Of course with that limited-time label it can be tempting to buy everything that looks awesome 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.

So I’ve had lots of questions in the comments about the Spring Relax Bundle.  I was going to wait until Monday to do a post on it, because another item is returning to the stores tomorrow (supposedly), but since y’all have a bunch of questions I’ll do it now and add some info about tomorrow’s (supposed) returning content, Nighthawk Diner and Rex Banner….


Bundle: Spring Relax Bundle
Contains: Otto & the School Bus & the Greenhouse
Donut Cost:
120 Donuts
Earns: Greenhouse and School Bus earn $300, 30xp/12hrs each
Previous Post: 
Should I Buy Otto (school bus (because back then I did 2 SIBS for every combo..I was crazy I know)), Should I Buy the Greenhouse (just includes the greenhouse, NOT the nature bundle)
My Opinion On it Now: So, Otto alone is 120 donuts.  So this isn’t a discount deal as much as it is a BOGO deal.  Buy Otto get the Greenhouse Free.  I like the Greenhouse (worth 80 donuts on it’s own), and I own both in my town.  If you’ve been looking into getting Otto grab this bundle.  Otherwise pass.
Leaves Stores April 27th

Why Can’t I See This Deal: Many of you saw this popup:

But then had no access to the deal.  This is because you likely have either Otto or the Greenhouse already.  If you have Otto and/or the Greenhouse this offer WILL NOT appear for you.

Building: Nighthawk Diner
Character: Rex Baner 
Donut Cost:
In the past this combo was 90 donuts
Earns: $500/45xp every 24hrs
Previous Post:
Should I Buy
My Opinion On it Now:
Any time you can get a character/building (or decoration with a bonus %) combo for under 100 donuts you should grab it.  Rex is one of my favorite characters, with a fantastic task to interrogate Flanders.  If you can swing him, get it.
Remember, Rex is supposed to hit stores TOMORROW, April 22nd, and is slated to Leave Stores April 29th


And that’s it my friends, the quick Should I Buy recaps for latest returning items..

What are your thoughts on the Relax Bundle or Rex Banner?  Will you be adding them to you Springfield?  Do you already own them? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

  1. Does the Greenhouse have any sort of payout or bonus %?


  2. These offers are tailor made for noobs to purchase – the rest who have everything? Move along, EA doesn’t care anymore …. 😐


  3. I am disappointed that I couldn’t get that greenhouse because I already have Otto. Sigh.


    • Me too. I have nearly bought the Greenhouse on the last couple of occasions when it was available separately, but there was always something more interesting for my Freemium Donuts. Even more irritatingly, this time, I had just bought Otto a couple of months ago, as I was fed up that Uter didn’t have a 4-hour task!


  4. Rex also does intelligence reports! I’ve been wanting him for awhile. He might be able to pay for himself by contributing to bonuts 🙂


  5. Can anyone answer me a question about Rex Baner? Does he have only one 8 hour quest (the one with Ned) or did EA give him a standalone at some point? Thinking about this from an unemployment office perspective.


  6. Side note- I just got a mystery box via the daily tasks. I was so excited I paused to enjoy the moment and inside was…a khav khalash stand! Words can’t express my disappointment! 😂 I didn’t know you could get tiny things like that which are easily purchasable with in-game cash! What a let down! 😩😂


  7. I would buy this if I could find it. it’s not available in my game yet? I’ve seen this in friends towns and it’s very pretty and would love to add one to my SF.


  8. I have the greenhouse but not Otto
    But now i can’t have him.
