Premiums aren't working

I have two premium items - the free box of fireworks and the bench with the blue jacket on it. I don't think I'm getting any of the bonus money. Can anyone help me please?

When you first get the premium items (ie fireworks) the bonus is not applied right away. You must synchronize the game. Go visit friends and come back. After it is synchronzied, collect money and you should see your bonus is applied. You can also hard close the game and it should work.

To check your bonus money, collect on Gulp n Blow. It has a standard $100. So if you collect $120 you have a 20% bonus.

    Also this is what I use in order to track my percentage to see where I am at and how it's improving.

    Jenscj - The quickest and easiest way to work out your bonus multiplier is to use the Gulp'N'Blow. The default non-bonus payout for that is $100 so whatever that pays you, subtract 100 from it and that's your bonus, e.g. If the Gulp'N'Blow pays you $200 then you've a bonus multiplier of 100%

    Does it not synch the same way if you go to other Springfield?

    Yes it does synch the same way. All you have to do is hit the "visit neighbor" icon and then hit the home button to return to your Springfield. It will say "Synchronizing" on the bottom of your screen right before you return home. You don't actually have to visit any neighbor or "other Springfield."

    also the information for buildings and tasks don't change. the gulp and blow will still say that it pays out $100 ever 3 hours (or whatever) regardless of your bonus

    You had to play the game on July the 4th. Completing the quest lines will just give you the Liberty Bell. When I opened the game on July the 4th it was the first thing that popped up.
