Any donut sales coming?

It would be nice to have some advance notice from EA on when sales are coming, but honestly, you'd probably have a better chance of getting the recipe for Coca Cola. If EA released that info, people would hold off for the sale, thus costing EA sales dollars at retail prices.

    No one except EA ever knows in advance. The only updates we know about ahead of time are events which are teased the day before and "big" updates mentioned a few weeks in advance

    Regarding patterns, you could more easily pinpoint and predict Armageddon before you could predict a Gil sale. Same as a watched pot never something something makes Homer crazy....

    The wiki has a list of Gil's offers, I believe it's accurate. Just look up Gil on the wiki.

    I think it goes "a watched pot, no TV and no beer make Homer something something..."

    I'm afraid I am in control of the donut discount. It will happen the day after I buy a shipload of donuts at full price.

    I don't think we'll see a donut sale until around Christmas.

    The first time I ever tried to buy donuts I didn't receive them either. Instead of messing with EA, I contacted Amazon (play on a Kindle Fire) and was quickly refunded my money. Since then, I buy Amazon coins and then use those to buy the donuts. No issues at all. If I were you, I'd contact the App store you used. You'll get a faster response and receive your money back faster too.

    They've been pretty regular about doing 2 donut sales per year. One during the summer and one after Christmas.

    This year's summer sale was at the beginning of August. It was a decent deal for people who are new to buying donuts:

    Because we just had one, I think it is unlikely that we will have another donut sale until around Christmas/New Years.
