    Without any seriousness please use vowels in your posts. It makes them quite hard to read if English isn't your first language

    (I think it's clever how they've done it)

    Well it's not a bad deal as you get a rebate of donuts

    Some of these are items I've been wanting for a while, but haven't gotten because they're just a little too steep. This sale puts things like Bowlarama and Sleep Eazy within a more palatable range (IMO, where they should be anyway!).

    They were free ages ago when they first debuted.

    The only problem is that instead of lowering the price, they give you a donut rebate. So in order to buy the Volcano Lair, I needed 200 donuts, not 150. I had to buy a tray of 132 to get what I needed, whereas if they'd lowered the price to 150, I would only have needed 60 donuts.

    Oh, well. I finally got the Volcano Lair. :-D

    Ive been playing tsto for 2 years now nd i was really excited abt the black friday deals
    Even though im a freemium player, nd i dnt have any of the items on deals, i wnt buy any because as always they will b available forever.
    I really wanted some of the old stuff coz even premium players might have missed a couple
    Nd what wouldve been best are new items
    Aw well guess my hard earned saved donuts will b spent on christmas
    :)


    it's like reading a text but not really.

    Disappointing sale, tiny discount on over priced items is not enough to entice me. I'll save my donuts for later.

    Some of the items you save almost 30% on like the Pet shop. It's regular price is 90 and you will be able to get it for 65 - a savings of 28%!! The ferris wheel is a 29% savings and so is the school bus. Some aren't so good, but most of the ones I looked at are at least a 20% savings. Crazy Cat House, Duff Brewery, Stu's Disco, Lugash's Gym, Barney's Bowlarama, are all in the 21%-23% range. But if you wanted one of these items, they don't usually go on sale, so saving 20% is a good deal. I'm going to go for the ones with the higher % savings, except for Barney's - I've been wanting that for a long time and didn't play when it was free. :cry:

    I have to say that this sale is rather silly. I get the idea behind it in terms of most retailers selling a new offer every hour but does it work on here?

    I mean, it's just creating a barrier to actually selling/buying.

    Example....

    - I've been saving donuts to get the Ferris wheel.
    - Would I buy the Ferris wheel at a reduced rate - in this case 35 donuts rebate? Yes...
    - Would I stay up past midnight just to buy it at a reduced rate? No....

    I am holding on to my donuts as I am saving for flaurance and don't want to be back at the start for saving.

    Plus any time they have a sale is a sure sign of new premium content round the corner and they are just getting everybody to blow their donuts first.

    Plus the rebate system means you still need to have the full amount of donuts so unless you actually have the donuts any way you still can't get the stuff.

    Considering in the past, Gil sales have only been on one or 2 recurring premium items, I am actually glad there is such a range on offer this time.
    I have a couple of things I have wanted for a while coming out. I'm going to have to find some free wifi while I am out and about today to ensure I get the Sleazy motel.
    Honestly Gil sales have never really been a time for returning items.
    We just had Halloween which had plenty of returning content, Thanksgiving is mostly recycled content and we are about to have Christmas that will also have a ot of stuff available again.
    I am not too worried that nothing rare has popped up.

    I'm really getting annoyed at the camera panning and Gil telling me there's a new rebate every damn time I log in. :evil:
