Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning Rex Banner, Lady Duff, Nature Bundle or Relaxation Bundle?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The kids of Springfield are mad as hell and they’re not going to take it anymore!  Time for a Battle Royale of epic proportions…kids vs adults.  The soul of Springfield is on the line!   So grab those sprinkles because the store is stocked with returning battle inspired items to fill your Springfield with!

As we all know, that limited-time label can tempt us to grab everything in sight 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 the Returning Rex Banner, Lady Duff, Nature Bundle or Relaxation Bundle to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding these throwbacks to your town…

All items leave stores March 21st.


Item: Rex Banner & Nighthawk Diner
Cost: 90 Donuts
Earns: $500/45xp every 24hrs
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do:
Rex is a full character with some amusing tasks
My Opinion On It Now: 
Aside from the fact that this is one of my favorite combos…anytime you can get a character combo for 110 donuts or less (in this case 90) it’s a must buy.  The price is too good to pass on.

Item: Lady Duff. With either Duffman/Duff Brewery or Duff Party Bus
Cost: With Party Bus- 50 Donuts.  With Duffman/Duff Brewery- 190 donuts, 40 Donut rebate NET 150 Donuts.
Earns: 2.25% bonus on cash and XP (Van), Brewery earns cash/XP
Previous Post: Should I Buy Party Bus, Should I Buy Duffman, Lady Duff

My Opinion On It Now:
At either price point it’s a good buy.

Previous Post: Should I Buy

My Opinion On It
Now: Not a bad price for what you get with it.  Bonus % alone is worth it.

 120 Donuts
Earns: $300,30xp/12hrs on Greenhouse.  Bus earns income as well, as does Otto

Not a bad buy for what you get with it.  Basically buy Otto get the greenhouse free

  1. Bought the Duff brewery with Duffman and Lady Duff skin, but now I don’t have the option to buy the Duff Party Bus. Also checked my inventory and no dice. This ain’t over yet. LOL Help please. Thanks

  2. I have Everything offered up, but for Noobs? These are all a steal (especially Rex Banner & Nighthawk Diner)! 👍

    Thank you EA for offering Discounts from the Past (some of these Bundles are nice)😀

  3. I don’t seem to have Rex Banner, where is he?

    • Do you have the Nighthawk Diner in your town or in the inventory? Does Rex Banner appear in the Census at Town Hall? If he doesn’t then he should be in either the Store or in the inventory.

      • No, I don’t have Rex Banner in my town and he doesn’t seem to be available to buy. I see the rich Texan came back out of no where for 85 donuts with a 20 donut rebate though.

        • Did you check your inventory to see if he and the Diner are there?

          • Yeah he’s not there and I can’t find him for sale. So I wonder if he’s is an item for everyone, as I had the rich Texan appear instead at 85 donuts with a 20 donut rebate

          • I had Rex Banner and the Nighthawk Diner for a while now from a previous 4th of July update so he could return again for this year’s 4th of July update but he shouldn’t be leaving the store until Wednesday with the mini event so you can keep checking it to see if he appears.
            The Rich Texan appears in The Vault now so 65 donuts for him is not a bad buy (the reason for not buying him in the past was that he didn’t have a 4 hour task originally but then he got given one a few years ago) but there is another event arriving in the next few days so if donuts are tight then you can save them for the next event and when The Rich Texan leaves The Vault on Wednesday he can still reappear there again at the same rebate in the future.

  4. I need some more donuts my vaults show me Arnie Pye, Beer & Brawl with Lurleen, and I was waiting for this post and Duffman with the brewery is looking a great buy 😧

  5. I got Lady Duff with bus & Rex. Soo awesome to have Rex! The Diner is really nice looking too.

  6. I finally bought the brewery.

  7. RIP Stephen Hawking. A great man, and a great Simpsons character.

  8. Wohoo, just got a teaser for a ‘little Italy’ thing, sort of event I suppose…

  9. Don’t have the option to buy the duff bus at 50 donuts and don’t have it already?

  10. Such a shame you cannot get the Duff Bus if you didn’t have Duffman already.

  11. Rex most favorite dessert, a Banana Kaboom 😅
