    I don't really have the money but I'm thinking about it, too! There are a lit if premiums I still don't have (lard lad, tire fire, stage, etc) and I too am looking forward to Squidport.

    Well being that is May 24, and the last doughnut "deal" was Dec 24ish and it's been 5 months, I'd bet that there's a good chance we wont see another until next Christmas so it might be better to go big now, the larger pack is always the best deal anyway.

    That said, I had just bought a boatload prior to the Christmas sale in order to purchase all of the Premiums at the beginning of December. A deal came around and figuring I wouldn't see another I bought a second boatload when it was on sale. I still have a lot of doughnuts and I'm finding myself spending more doughnuts then I would probably spend if I were on a tighter budget. Why buy one Duff Balloon when there are two places I'd like to have them and I still have tons of doughnuts.

    I guess what I'm saying is exercise the self-control I obviously lack. If for you that means, not wasting to much money now then that's probably a smart decision. If you can sit with a bunch of doughnuts and not waste them then I'd definitely take advantage of the sale.

    I don't know whether to get a boatload or not. Somebody help. What's the usual price of one (preferably from a UK player so I know the actual £ amount rather than a dollar conversion)??

    The sale in Canada is $74.99 as appose to the usual $99.99 so it's 25% off of what ever the previous price was. Good luck with the math!

    Yeah, I'm going boating. But I'm going to find some ITunes cards on sale first. That makes it an even better deal.

    I now have enough donuts to last me for the rest of the year, at least. Had about 950 left from the boatload I bought a few days ago, then after hearing of possible glitches I tested Gil to see if he was for real and bought a Tray. Seemed to work okay so I bought the boatload in all it's glory. Yep that's right EA have gotten more than $200 from me in the last 2 days.

    The first boatload is always the hardest it's the second, third boatloads that are the most dangerous.....suddenly that purchase button doesn't look to scary esp when you're anticipating a big update coming up....dun...dun..dun...!

    Stats for the british players

    Donuts / Normal price / Sale Price / Saving / Sale Price per donut
    2400 / £69.99 / £49.99 / £20 (28%) / 2.1p (2.9p normally)
    900 / £34.99 / £26.99 / £8 (22.8%) / 3p (3.9p)
    300 / £13.99 / £10.49 / £3.50 (25%) / 3.5p (4.7p)
    132 / £6.99 / £5.49 / £1.50 (21.4%) / 4.2p (5.3p)
    60 / £2.99 / £2.49 / £0.50 (16.7%) / 4.2p (5p)

    Note: if the information available is correct the squidport expansion will come with around 650 donuts worth of new premium content
