Should I Spend Donuts On the Mattress King Store and Marv?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

New holiday alert in Springfield! Yes, it’s time to break out your stretchy pants as Thanksgiving is fast approaching for our favorite yellow family!  Of course, by now, we all know that a new event means a new excuse for EA to fill our stores with limited-time premium items to tempt us.

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 Mattress King Warehouse and Morty to your Springfield?  Well before you hit that confirm button let’s break down the pros and cons of adding this bed bug infested duo to your town…

Building/Decoration: Mattress King Store
Character: Marv
Donut Cost: 150 Donuts
Size:
6×17
Earns:
$200, 22xp/8hrs  
Conform-O-Meter: 
Consumerism +10
Can Be Placed:
grass|pavement|boardwalk|pier|dirt

Leaves stores November 28th

Pros
-Typical price for a building/character combo these days
-Helps with the Thanksgiving Event, earns a premium rate
-Building is animated when in use
-Has a 24hr visual task

Cons
-His 8hr task requires Morty.  So to get the full set of tasks you’ll need to spend 299 donuts (149 for Morty and 150 for Marv)
-His 4hr task requires Moe
-Has no 1hr task.

Final Thought
Premium:
If you’re prepared to spend 299 donuts to buy BOTH Marv and Morty this is a good one.  Fun character and finally nice for Moe to have some family in town.

Freemium:
I’d pass and save your donuts for Black Friday or Christmas.  You’ll need to spend 299 donuts to unlock all of his tasks and it’s just not worth it. Plus he doesn’t have a 1hr task, feels like a let down for the price tag.

Of course, in the end, it’s your decision, we can only tell you what we would or wouldn’t do…and as a premium player, I already picked it up.  But whatever you decide, just make sure you make your final decision before it leaves our games for good (or for now).

Here’s a look at his tasks…

Marv’s Permanent Tasks:

Task Length Earns Location
Record a Commercial with Moe 4hrs $520, 140xp Outside/Visual Requires Moe
Fight Szyslak Style 8hrs $840, 210xp Outside/Visual Requires Morty
Give Online Mattress Stores Bad Reviews 12hrs $600, 150xp Mattress King
Aggressively Advertise 24hrs $1000, 225xp Outside/Visual

  2. Got over 500 donuts in the bank, probably will need more for Christmas. But bought him and the other after cleaning out the black Friday mystery boxes. He’s ok. The buildings take up a lot of space.

    Nope! Hard for me to justify spending sprinkles for Moe’s Family when there’s better Character / Building Combos to obtain during Black Friday at discount (EA even gives you 1 free Gold Token to start)🤷🏼‍♀️

  5. I’d just like to add that he has also tasks at the Chez Guevara (8hrs) and at Smooches at the Beach (4hrs).

  6. No 1hr task and no independence for 4hr and 8hr tasks? Big “no”!
    Thanks for this post Alissa, as always ❤

    • He does have other 4’s and 8’s if you got buildings that have tasks for any character. Not fully sure which buildings without doing a lot of research but I think Alissa or one of the others can dig them up faster than I can.
