    I buy my donuts. Some people save them up from tasks, leveling up, etc. took me about 2 months to get to level 38/buy every item.

    yeah 20$ for 300 donuts isnt too crazy I guess. just wondering if there is a better way than not spending 20$

    I seen one friends farm and it literally had about 300 white houses only... whats with that? just a major money maker or what?

    House farming is one way to make major money and XP.

    I take a chance by buying golden scratcher cards. I've won 100 donuts twice during the Xmas event.

    For non-physical cash spending, house farming, and weather station building are a good way to get XP, but if you're a high level player, this takes FOREVER.

    I use to win iTunes gift cards though a rewards program at work, now that the government shut down my workplace, no more of that.

    You can try online contests, I've won a few.

    Or wait for a sale. Most retailers will put gift cards on for 50$ for 40$. Then wait for Gil to come about and make a killing.

    It's so nice having the Red Cross and an Apple store down the block.

    I just donated a pint of blood, got the money and exchanged it for an iTune gift card.

    Came home, activate my card, bought the donuts, get brandine, the whale and used the donuts to speed rush through to get the three kids.

    Now off to sleep I go to replenish the plasma I lost for the next update. :-)


    But to be serious for a second. I've played since September of 2012 and found myself already spending $300 on this game. Yes, I keep a tab (not hard, 3 boatloads).

    What I like about this game is it is never ending. It's ever changing with the updates and your own designs (like minecraft but with Homer :-) ). I am still not done with my squidport tiles.

    I buy donuts. I've bought 2 boatloads so far over the past 9 months. The first boatload, I wasted about 300 speeding up tasks/accidentally buying a duplicate item that cost 60 donuts. I'm being very careful now. A boatload lasts me a very long time, so it's worth it.

    I only buy donuts when I get extra money, like on my b-day or holidays. The last boatload I got was when Gil had his special deal. I got some money and a gift card for X-mas so I used that.

    I owe a thanks to my family for unknowingly feeding my obsession!

    As Brandine is a limited time character, to be specific, cash I'd think!

    You'd have needed to be playing a while to have saved enough donuts from playing the game to have enough for any premium item and with the way things are going the premium items are going to keep going up in cost.

    The only discounts given for donuts as far as I can recall where via a Gil offer over the last 2 Christmas themed events, but please correct me if I am wrong!

    Gil sometimes sells donuts at a discount, or sells premium items such as 3 for the price of one. No telling when this will happen. As for the rest there is the FAQ section in this forum, you can do a search here, or there are 3rd party tip websites (believe them at your own risk)

    I've been saving since Halloween for Duffman but I blew my money on Brandine and Kearney instead.
