Will heart surplus buy donuts like Santa coins?

Prev1
I'd say no, they gave out quite a few donuts over Christmas, which was a huge surprise to me. Somehow I don't think their heart is big enough to do it again

    There's no saying that they will repeat a similar 'stocking' scenario. None of us know.
    I've also completed everything, and am continuing to collect hearts, just in case :)

    My opinion is they will do like in Halloween...
    i.e 350 candys = 35 donuts.

    Perhaps, I'm wrong.

    I suspect not (but I wish they do). With the christmas coins there were only one off items, this is not the case with the hearts, plenty of alternatives to continue spending after you have finished the quest line. Still, I am hamstring and hope for the best.

    You got donuts for your candies?

    I joined after the halloween event (during thanksgiving) but I understand the candy just disappeared. Halloween ended with a trivia with a chance to win 10 donuts. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    That happened? I should have gotten 500+ donuts then.

    It depends if they saw a spending lift from the stockings. Many players never took the step of buying any donuts because they couldn't get much without spending a lot. After the stockings, many were only a small donut purchase away from getting a cool premium item they never thought they'd get. I think the premise is to get them hooked that way.

    If they do decide to reprise the stocking idea, a box of chocolates makes total sense. You never know what you're going to get...

    I don't remember donuts being part of that at all.

    We got given 12 donuts each at the end of Halloween regardless of how many candies you had.

    Don't think there'll be a stocking equivalent as it is possible to spend all of your hearts on decorations but who can say? Not me anyway.

    No conversion, they just disappeared. Everyone got a dozen doughnuts at the end of the event.

    On the upside, valentines decorations can be sold for cash (unlike all prior limited items), so you can at least convert hearts to cash and XP by buying and selling decorations. ($10 and 1XP per heart, regardless of decoration purchased.)

    I will gather hearts but I won't hold my breath for more donuts in exchange. I hope there will be other items for hearts. Maybe the hottest women of Springfield: lunchlady or crazy cat lady :shock:

    Well if they do provide a new or similar promo theyll notified us beforehand, as they did with the stocking promo. They didn't provide details so I stop collecting coins after I completing the Xmas missions. This time I guess, like many of u guys ill keep collecting with hopes of a new promo.

    I really hope so. But I doubt it too. The scary thing is that if you save the hearts and nothing happens, you will lose everything where you instead could have bought a lot of limited stuff,

    Just buy the stuff on the 28th before the event ends if nothing better is announced. Then you can keep what you want and sell the rest for cash.
