Question about Santa coins

1. Whether you have 1 blue house or 100 blue houses, you can only collect on one every 24 hours.

2. Every house gives the same 5 coins.

3. See http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/9164472.page and http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/9164683.page. Essentially, you find friends who have all the premium items and click in and out (not collecting anything) for awhile, which builds up the amount you can collect from each house.

I got about $1 million this morning doing so for about an hour on a friend that has a TON of premium stuff.

    Sorry. Got ahead of myself on that one.

    Still add the 100 friends. You can click on three houses every 24 hours for one coin each, so 300 a day. Make sure the house is decorated (or you can click their tree if available) or at least one of their set is decorated, or else it won't give you coins.

    Alrighty thanks for all the help , if you could just help me with one more thing what is the best way to get coins with donuts because I'm pretty sure that I will not have enough coins for slh And funzos before this event ends with just coins through friends

    You can buy the blue funzo for 50 donuts.

    You can buy Santa's Sack for 5 donuts, which gives you 10-20 coins at a time. You can buy however many you want.

    I already have both the funzos (and SLH) available through coins, so I don't remember (you can probably search the forum), but some of these Christmas items are not limited time, meaning they should become available for cash/donuts after. I thought I remember reading SLH was not marked as limited time, but could be wrong. Don't remember about the funzos.

    Nope you're right, Santa's Little Helper and the Funzos aren't marked as Limited Time only so they should still be available after the Christmas and coin stuff is removed.

    I'm also unsure on how long this is going to go on. Right now I sit at almost 1200 coins and if it were to end, let's say tomorrow...and i wasn't able to collect anymore coins, I'd be majorly disappointed unless of course afterwards you can go ahead and buy Santa's Little Helper for cash. I don't have 100 friends but I am hoping that this will last another 5 days for me and well for you, I hope it lasts til at least the end of January. It sucks for people who are just now getting into this game, that are fans of the Simpsons and can't get their beloved pet! Back during the Halloween special, I was upset I was unable to get that one alien guy...can only imagine the upset over the dog. haha ...I was dumb though with my santa coins at first because I didn't realize how much the dog would cost. I purchased the 1000 coin funzo when it was part of the quest instead of the 750 one. :\ Sad. haha just hope I can get the dog anyways. I can't afford the donut stuff all the time...and purchasing the 10/20 packs for 1500 of them, heck, even for just 500 of them is tedious and expensive.
    I am pulling for ya! And gather more friends while you're doing this, no telling the benefits of having more friends!

    The original deadline for the Christmas content was January 3rd. But according to a post on the Tapped Out Facebook page, they're extending the Christmas content time but it doesn't say for how long.

    What you also can do is add new friends and remove your old friends, then you have new houses to collect coins from every time :mrgreen:
