Donuts now, or Donuts later?

I do not believe that Gil will come twice in a short time. So a donut sale could be putt off untill after the summer,

For the fourth of july... There won't be an event i think, and besides Nighthawk dinner wirh Rex for in-game cash there probably won't be much premium additions.

    My rule of thumb, is wait for as long as you possibly can. I wouldn't expect anyone to wait longer than that.

    I was (am) kind of in the same boat as you. I wanted to drop $20 on 300 donuts just to get Frink so I could also buy his robe before it was gone for good. However, I was a bit, how do you say... knackered :) at the time and accidentally spent $50. I got Frink's lab and robe, and went to bed all warm and fuzzy. It wasn't until I opened TSTO the next morning that I realized the mistake I made.

    Still, it's nice to glance down and see those 771 donuts just sitting there.

    I love this! I'm going to put it to use as soon as possible.

    How about a fair trade?

    When someone asks where they are, just reply, "Directly above the center of the Earth."

    So much for being a Freemium player. Decided to splurge on 900 donuts (bye bye $50)

    But I don't know whether to do it now, while the stonecutters event is still up (I could still get Frinks Lab and then his skin for example) or should I hold off and wait for the 4th July event, which will most probably have some great premium additions (don't care if im an Englishman in the USA, im looking forward to my first 4th July holiday here) and then theres gil, who while im not interested in the golden house (price wise) people on here have talked about him having donut sales once in a while, so I don't know if I should wait for that.

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    First welcome to the dark side! If you want last year - there was a crate of fireworks for like 100 donuts or something I think (or cheaper), a firework spin wheel for like 30 donuts (or about), and finally was Abraham Lincoln with his cabin for 160 donuts I think. If any of those interest you, I'd save those donuts. I wouldn't expect too many other new premiums, likely only one other character - and maybe 1 or 2 new decorations.

    Considering Frink + skins is only 162 donuts - I think it would be a safe bet to purchase those, and you would still have plenty leftover for the 4th.

    The main advice is if you think something more will be available later - try to save the donuts. If you like the limited items, get those A.S.A.P. Frink can always wait (will always be there), but if you know will buy him eventually, I would go ahead and buy the skin. The skin will be removed this week. Same with Dr. Hibbert's skin and the All Seeing Eye.

    The Gold House is a choice you must make. Do you like it? Then get it. If you can live without, then skip it. Think it's overpriced? Well it won't be any cheaper - and if you want it - it will be gone for a while. May never see it again, or perhaps will pop up at some point in the future (who knows when?). I don't personally think it's worth it, but if you want to be collecting all the premiums, I would nab it while you can.

    If you definitely want Frink's Stonecutter skin, do it now. If you're ambivalent, you can wait to see if it pops up again in the future. I don't regret getting the skin, but I don't think it's essential. There aren't any major additions that come with it.

    If you are wondering if it's better to wait then it's probably for the best that you wait and get them in a few weeks just in case something unexpected comes up. Only buy the donuts if you can afford to spend the money, it's not worth the second guessing and anxiety to splurge right now.

    gils "doughnut sales" mean you buy doughnuts for less RL $, not items for less doughnuts. and i would try to get stone cutter limited editions, i dont know if going to have 4th july event becuase stone cutters is ending july 3rd. might get an event later in july thugh last s..t patrics day event was AFTER s..t Patrics day, or for me anyway. (the fourm thinks * short for saint is a cuss word ****)
