    I thought about this too, although I have both, so I didn't think about it for too long. :P I guess one of four things would happen:

    You would get the sign and two breweries - not likely.
    You would get the sign and the 190 donuts - also not likely IMHO.
    You would get the sign and nothing else, therefore wasting donuts - likely.
    You wouldn't get the offer at all - likely.

    People are speculating that the deal will include: Duff Brewery, Springfield Sign and $50,000. If the $50,000 is true then the deal won't be worth getting for anyone.

    May I ask what happened the last time Gil had an offer like this? For instance when he offered Volcano Lair and Springfield Sign, what happened to those who already owned one of those things?

    And since they include $50.000 in this upcoming deal, why would that make the deal not worth it?

    If you already have one of those items, you won't get the offer. Gil won't even show up in your town.

    Not worth it because in game cash is easy to come by especially a small amount like 50,000$. Considering it costs 300 donuts for 50,000$.. That price will surely be reflected in the offer. Obviously at a discount but still most likely not worth it.

    I see, thanks for answering. Though I do find it a bit strange that EA would come with discount offers which actually punish their paying customers. If you have already bought something, you won't get any discounted offer at all. Strange. The best thing they could do, would be to make several offers, and make people choose only one of those once. This could include one offer of only discounted donuts, and other offers could be a few items bundled together. If EA even mixed this up with a previous or even new premium item in the mix. Most people on here would jump on one of those alternative offers. EA could do so much out of this...

    @Chrisp: Agree! :thumbup:

    @FluidEmotion: This was based on the last Gil deal which involved in game cash, which was a joke.

    As I've read, the last combo offer with cash was Frink + Homer Buddha + $50,000 for 250 donuts. If you paid full price for Frink and the Buddha, the $50K cost you 85 donuts.

    Which terrifies me, cause I'm ready to buy the Brewery and a discount of the Sign would be worth the wait. But I won't spend one donut on ingame cash, so if the deal costs more than the 360 I'd spend to buy them both then I won't touch it and I'd buy the Brewery tonight.

    God I wish I knew that price lol... my next donut item is waiting on the answer lol.

    EDIT: I caved lol. Buying the truckload now, used the money I was about to build a questline building with to buy a new plot of land, and added Frink and Duffman to my town (already bought Otto, and won SVT in a Buddha). No regrets. :)

    I bought the Frink deal. It was only until a few weeks later that I thought it was worth it. $50k sounded great at the time, and was part of the reason I caved. I won SVT in the Homer Buddha that came with the deal so I didn't feel too bad.

    before knowing of TSTO, I was addicted to some game, which I played a few times everyday. I had spent £30 in that game, but a few days after I made that purchase, the game just won't load at all no matter how many times I restarted or reinstalled the game :( I was so very sad but there's nothing I could do.

    after a while I found TSTO and soon got addicted as I always loved The Simpsons :) I initially thought I wouldn't spend no money for this game, in the fear that I won't play anymore in the future and it just goes to "waste".

    but in the end I decided I REALLY really want to buy more donuts! so I did! I have spent about £100 so far - some spent in game, some spent for hackers to get me awesome things for a cheap price. well, I guess I don't care wherever I buy the contents from. if things were cheaper from EA in the first place, more people were gonna buy from them and they would still earn loads. but if it's this expensive, I'm sure they know a lot of people are gonna cheat/hack. it's the consequence.

    You should change your password just in case.. And they're going to eventually rerelease everything anyway (IMO). Just be patient. ;)
