Best Premium Item For Best Multiplier

You have three options:
1. Jet Engine Bike. 2% bonus for 30 donuts is the best as regular premium items go.
2. Wait and see. Sometimes limited time items give a better % per donut. For example the Snowball II snowman gave 2% for 20 donuts. Who knows if and when another item like that is offered though.
3. Mystery boxes. Supposedly this averages out to be the best % for donut spent in the long run, as the mystery boxes only cost 6 donuts, and give a good shot at the Channel 6 news van (2% bonus) and the Itchy and Scratchy Billboard (1% bonus). For 1 Jet Engined Bike, you can buy 5 Mystery Boxes and chances are you'll get a better than 2% multiplier out of your winnings.

    Mystery boxes are the best by far .... I use them a lot the average is 100% bonus for 800 donuts so you could earn about 50% bonus vs about 14% for Jet Bikes.

    Mystery boxes are the way to go for pure percentage increase. I stopped using them because I'd now rather buy something interesting with a lower percentage payout - but I also have about 30 or 40 news vans hidden around my town.

    You'll get some crap while buying the mystery boxes, but stick with it. You'll also hit a few bonuses of 10 or 30 donuts in there. Decide how much you're willing to spend (50-100 donuts) and keep buying them till you hit that limit - you'll probably end up with 4-5 extra boxes with the surplus donut winnings too.

    Yup, over 1000 car and pool and over 700 lard lads in storage here... But I'm getting the 5500 item warning now... Can I still continue buying boxes? The scratchy boards is 1% per item... It's like over 60 items (board+van) for every 100% with the boxes... So with the hard limit being around 7000, does the game still runs with over 6000 items?

    Why don't you sell those cars, ponds, and bomb shelters?

    Game works fine here, I'm at 8500 items. Just takes a while to load.
    All my designs look unfinished because i can't place as many plants, streetlights, and fences as i would like. PLEASE REMOVE THE LIMIT, EA!

    Thanks guys, I just spent 80 some donuts, on top of the 50 bonus donuts I won, on mystery boxes and am now up to 100%. I got 3 billboards and 4 news vans, along with 2 10 donuts and a 30 donuts. Definitely the way to go.
