Event premium items, help me decide

I passed on the donut shop but I did get Ajax. It comes with Roscoe, whereas the donut shop doesn't. The multiplier is good but I would rather have the character to earn cash. Just my 3 cents worth.

    I recommend buying the ajax steel mill because you get 50 donuts back

    If you like characters with visual tasks, roscoe and the steel mill are a great buy. I got it last year for 150 donuts, I think, and I've really enjoyed that purchase. So for 100 donuts after rebate, I think it's a "steel". I bought the donut truck, but I think it's meh ....

    I have both items myself but got the steelmill when it was initially released, if it was a choice between the two then the steelmill would win hands down and the bonus of a rebate makes it even better.

    I see you mention the Ajax Steel Mill decent rebate but I don't see if you even like the item that much. I'd pass on the minor multiplier you'd get from the donut truck and opt with buying neither right now.

    When you like the Ajax Steel Mill, go get some. This will leave you with 120 donuts and days left to replenish your total. Come next event you'd have enough donuts for at least one premium character and maybe another small item, depending on how soon it drops.

    In my experience I always regret spending donuts when a new event has dropped and my donut count is near depletion.

    Buying characters at a discount is the way to go. Kicking myself for missing Jimbo at half price a while back. So I say, buy AJAX. I did!

    Plus if you have Smithers and Duffman, they both also have permanent visual jobs there.

    If you can only choose one, Id suggest Ajax. It opens visual jobs for Smithers and Duffman as well.

    Ajax all the way, the donut truck/shop and boat don't appeal to me. I got Ajax just for the fact it came with a discount, can't beat that.

    Super Hero Part 2 event I think is close by....so I'd suggest wait for that. But at the end it's still your decision.

    Don't increase the Item Limit? Then I don't play. Period.

    Is ajax and the steel mill always available at it's regular price? If so I think that might be the deciding factor. As I do like the idea of having a donut truck in my town and I don't think we will see that stay after event or come back any time soon.

    The steel mill was a limited item, so I think it's limited this time around too. I got it first time around and didn't regret it!

    I'd been wishing for the Steel Mill as I'd missed it first time around. So happy I got it!
    Curiosity killed the cat, but for a while I was a suspect.

    Well time partly decided for me as I forgot to check in and buy the donut truck. Hopefully it will come around again sooner than later. Which means less spent holding me back from buying ajax. I think that puts me in a good position to buy something next event or whatnot.
