How'd you make out in the Black Friday Sale?

Prev13
I purchased:

Frink's Lab
Volcano Lair
Big Texan

I had enough left over donuts to purchase the robot decoration to put next to the lab. I wanted Barney's Bowlorama but really can't justify spending any more money than I already have so far.

    Just the Crazy Cat House. I was planning on getting it around Christmas if they had another Gil sale on doughnuts, but the 40 doughnut rebate was good too.

    I took my first proper foray into premium and bought

    Volcano Lair
    Big Texan
    Finks Lab
    Barney's Bowlarama
    Thanksgiving Casino
    And, with the leftover, the outside broadcast van and world broadcast tower.

    It felt good, but I must keep spending sensible!

    The new item is just (presumibly) a decoration without questline

    Barney's Bowlarama has:
    3 jobs:

    Homer Simpson
    Go Bowling - 20h
    Ned Flanders
    Go Bowling - 20h
    Barney Gumble
    Be a Pin Monkey - 16h

    temporanery:
    Suzanne the Witch
    Go Bowling - 12h (Hex in the woods pt.5)

    Earns: $150, XP17 every 5 h

    tapped_out_barney_new_character.png?w=300&h=164

    Barney has premium payout jobs with 3 visual ones
    Eat at Krusty Burger
    Attend AA Meeting
    Sober Up (visual)
    Drink at Moe's
    Sleep in the Gutter (visual)
    Be a Pin Monkey
    Go on a Binge (visual)
    (plus a 4th visual one if you bought the Open Air Stage)

    plus if you get Plow King skin on Christmas:

    Print Off Flyers
    Drop Off Flyers (visual)
    Record a Commercial
    Print Anti-Mr. Plow Lies
    Drink To Success (visual)

    the questline though is only 5 parts (6 if you've Suzanne the witch - if that quest is still active)

    and he's voiced

    Pros and Cons (by TSTOTopix)

    Pros
    Barney Gumble can be unlocked at the early level of level 5 and completes the character collection of Barflies, without the requirement of any other character. Barney’s Bowlarama will give you additional 20-hour quests for Homer and Ned. He is a voiced character which seems to be an important thing for a character to have at this stage of the game and he also brings along his famous catchphrase which can be seen above. When buying Barney Gumble you can then unlock the performance on the Open Air Stage of The Be Sharps (Which in my opinion is the best animation on the Open Air Stage). He also earns premium rate.

    Cons

    Barney Gumble costs the most expensive donut price of 250 donuts, however during Christmas he was at the price of 200 Santa Coins and was not then classed as a premium character. The character can be unlocked during level 5 but to complete his quest line you have to unlock Moe’s tavern during level 15. Barney only has three of his tasks visible which is annoying for a premium character.

    I didn't buy anything yet. The credit I have left in my Google Play account will be going towards a friend's book, to help support him, so I'm going without my usual dips into donuts or Golden Scratch-Rs.

    Waiting for Christmas items. :)

    I bought...nothing! The only item I really want to get at some point is Kamp Krusty, but it first was offered in the middle of the night and I was unable to log on yesterday during its other hour. The rest of the stuff I haven't bought already because I don't want it even at a reduced cost (sorry, boardwalk performers).
    New neighbors always welcome!

    If you don't have Barney he may be good at this time of year as we may get more Mr Plow related Christmas lines - this is just a guess.

    I don't do a lot of premium stuff but like the ones with a person that has got visible tasks. Don't see much point in buying a character who then stays hidden!

    I didn't see any good deals, so I didn't get anything. I think the prices were still too high for me.

    There were some things I wanted on sale, but I decided to spend what few donuts I had on limited-time items (Casino and Jacqueline).

    I got Frink, and on a whim I got Lard Lad Donuts.

    The other things I wanted still seemed too expensive even with the rebate. I toyed with the idea of buying Barney's Bowlarama, until I realized that my remaining 208 donuts still wouldn't be enough because of the rebate runaround.
