Should I Spend Donuts on the Returning 4th of July Content?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

4th of July has arrived in Springfield!  But, with that limited-time label it may be overwhelming trying to decide which items to buy and what to pass on. . But, have no fear! That’s where we come in to tell you what’s worth your donuts & what you might want to hold off on.

Last week, with the arrival of I&S Act 3, a ton of 4th of July related items returned to our stores.  Wondering if you should add these rockets red glare to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm spend button, let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this American swag to your Springfield….

Don’t be confused, Gil is NOT in Springfield right now….I just like this image 😉

All 4th of July items leave stores July 11th

Item: All American Apu
Cost: 30 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
Earns: Premium Rate for tasks
What Does It Do:
 Premium costume for Apu.  
My Opinion On It Now: 
For 30 donuts I think this is totally worth it!

Item: Nighthawk Diner and Rex Banner
Cost: 90 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do: Premium character/building combo
My Opinion On It Now:
 If you don’t already have him, this is a MUST BUY.  90 donuts for a premium character/building should always be an instant buy.  What are you waiting for?  Stop reading this and go buy him….I’ll wait.

Item: Pinwheel Fireworks
Cost: 40 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do: Animated when tapped.  Earns a 2% bonus on all cash and XP
My Opinion On It Now:
 Not a bad pickup.  40 donuts for 2% is pretty standard, and it has a fairly small footprint.

Item: Box of Fireworks
Cost: 60 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do: Animated when tapped. (fireworks go off in the air)  Earns a 2.25% bonus on all cash and XP
My Opinion On It Now:
 Bonus % isn’t great for donuts spent, but it’s still pretty cool.  I always like having the fireworks in Springfield, one of my more favorite decorations.  HOWEVER, you can get basically the same thing for free in the cash version, Patriotic Box of Fireworks.  Same thing, just in-game cash and no bonus %.  Animation is exactly the same.

Item: Lisa Statue of Liberty
Cost: 75 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do: Nothing, it’s a statue.  Earns a 2.75% bonus on all cash and XP
My Opinion On It Now:
 I own it, I like it.  Never regretted the purchase.  Bonus % is terrible for donuts spent, but it’s a fun one.  Certainly not a must buy though.

Item: Fireworks Barge
Cost: 80 Donuts
Previous Post: Should I Buy
What Does It Do: Animated when tapped.  Earns a 2.75% bonus on cash and XP. Goes in Ocean
My Opinion On It Now:
 I own it, I like it.  But the bonus % is terrible for donuts spent!  Downright AWFUL.  A little lackluster. This is one I’d pass on now if donuts were limited.

And as a reminder, the following items are available for in-game cash…

American Flag- $5,600 (not unique)

Patriotic Box of Fireworks- $5,600 (not unique)

Liberty Bell- $50,000 (unique)

Lincoln Memorial- $100,000 (unique)

Because they all cost in-game cash it’s never a bad idea to pick them up…whether you need them right now or not. 

What are your thoughts on the returning items?  Will you be spending donuts to bring any of these throwbacks to your Springfield?  Why or why not?  Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!

    Off topic immediately:
    Anyone else having their game crash/shut down completely when trying to visit neighbor for daily task? Gone thru the usual steps including uninstall/reinstall. If I decline the visit neighbor task, will the alternate task earn event currency as well?
    Thanks in advance!

    • I’ve had that several times in the past. Seems to start for me after adding a building/item to the town or after rearranging things a bit. You might putting some things in storage, taking some out, rearranging, etc. That seems to ‘fix’ it for me.

    • Every task right now earns the same 1500 event currency. I always X away the visit neighbors task because it’s way more time consuming than just clearing my own town.

      • If you let the task take you to “other springfield” (hit “do it”), finding 3 people to tap takes about 10 seconds…then return home. The whole task takes me about 30 seconds. It takes me a lot longer to find 30 folks in my own town, even hitting the “do it” button 30 times.
