    It was the Raven [Edit: Removal of External Link], I purchased it accidentally. There was no conformation for sales yet implemented when I did this. :(

    Regret wasting donuts on Santa's Little Helper
    He's so small and pointless - would probably take me 10 minted to find him if I tried

    Spending donuts on mystery boxes. I was so excited they put decent premium prizes in the mystery boxes and thought I couldn't wait for them so there went the donuts. Stupid stupid stupid. :(

    I regret the 26 benches with a towel on them I got in 2014. The first 40 were more than enough!

    The Laffy Meal is the worst thing to spend donuts on. I got 1000 tickets for 25 donuts.

    You aren't going to get the Eyeballs of Death or Mt. Krustmore for cheap.

    Homer's helper monkey. It was released a day or two after I unlocked Stampy the elephant, so I assumed it would have missions too and bought it on a whim. But alas, it's just a walking decoration.

    This Halloween, I bought the UFO, because I thought I needed it to get Kodos... it's cool, but pretty much a waste of donuts, since I didn't need it at all, and it's not very useful.

    The UFO wasn't all that bad of a buy. It gives both Kang and Kodos each a 16 hour task, as well as a 10 hour joint task. All of which are visual tasks with awesome animations (in my opinion). I bought it once I found out that Kodos was craftable so I wouldn't need to spend those donuts I had been saving up.

    My worst was probably buying some mystery boxes when I first started out (this was before the revised mystery box). Yay, 6 donuts for a parking lot! Or accidentally speeding up the brown house.

    I first posted to this thread when it was just:

    Worst... Buy... Ever? with no poll.

    Now the poll has been added, and bears the title:

    Your biggest rip off, what type of purchase was it?

    Seriously? Rip Off? How is a purchase you voluntarily made, a Rip Off?

    Does the OP even know what Rip Off means?

    rip-off
    noun informal
    noun: rip-off; plural noun: rip-offs; noun: ripoff; plural noun: ripoffs

    a fraud or swindle, especially something that is grossly overpriced.
    "designer label clothes are just expensive rip-offs"

    synonyms: fraud, cheat, deception, swindle, confidence trick; informalcon, scam, flimflam, gyp, rip, gouge, shakedown, bunco
    "the insurance policy turned out to be a rip-off"

    an inferior imitation of something.
    "rip-offs of all the latest styles"


    I'm sure the OP didn't mean it, but it's negative connotations like these that bring down the level of the Forum. It's also comments like these that have prompted many a long time Forum Member to leave.

    Pick your words wisely.

    Nice, making the forum safe one whine about a whine at a time!
    Oh I can do it too!
    Cheese to go with what everyone's drinking!

    Mods instead of closing thread can't it just be called Whine Cellar? ?

    I wouldnt class it as a rip off, as we all make the decision to buy certain items with donuts, but the most over priced prem character i would say is "Barney" 250D I think? I managed to get him a long time ago for free, if i hadnt i think i would have to really have a think to whether spend that amount on one character even if he does come with a building.

    Least the Whale comes with 7% bonus although that still a huge amount of donuts

    Arnie!

    at least my other character purchases like Jimbo and Kearny don't ANNOY THE HELL OUT OF EVERYTIME I PLAY

    seriously, I would sell Arnie for 20 donuts if I could

    Worst buy for me was Duffman. I saved up for his for ages (freemium ftw!), and I was bitterly disappointed with him. He doesn't have proper quests, he doesn't interact with any of the other Springfielders. His quotes are a bit amusing though. I should have gone with Disco Stu instead!

    Best buy for me was Dr. Nick, Love the character in the series, and he is funny in the game. I think Jasper is a close second!

    I've never been unhappy with any character or building I've bought with donuts. But someone just posted this in another thread and it reminded me:

    Biggest RIP OFF was accidentally spending 2 donuts to speed up a random generic house because an update had reset my "confirm donuts spending" setting. Happened to me right around the time of that one event that made me quit with the wheel. Came back for super hero event though and have been very happy with the game since.

    OMG! You wasted 300 donuts on a deco? ... Better spend it on other "productive" characters and/or buildings, as newbie you needs a lot of in-game money to progress.
