    First, Get any of the limited items you want. The Duff Party bus is cool, and so is Frink's car.

    After that, you'll want to get buildings with characters, or some good multipliers. I'd start with Otto, since he's the cheapest, then Frink or Sideshow Mel. Then a multiplier or two, like the Tire Fire, and ambulance or a cop car.

    And, then, yeah, maybe keep a couple of hundred in reserve for future limited items you may want. Remember, the non-limited items will always be there, for when your donut cravings come back :P :lol:

    Agreed. The update will contain lots of new and possibly limited stuff, so it would be in your best interest to wait it out. The stuff that's available now will be available forever, apart from the Season 24 stuff.

    Maybe get yourself one of those Duff Party Buses. 8)

    I would buy 900 white picket fences.

    I always priorities limited time premium stuff to spend my donuts on. All the core stuff will always be available so you can buy them whenever, but once a limited time premium item is gone, odds are, its gone for good.

    Of I was you, I would make sure I have anything from the yard sale which I like before that ends, then save my remaining donuts for when the squidport drops. Only after I have bought all the premium stuff from the squirt that I want would I spend donuts on premium stuff that is always available.

    All this squid talk reminds me of the episode "homers night out" when bart,Lisa,Marge and maggie go to dinner at the rusty barnacle and bart asks for the squid with extra tentacles.

    The Squidport stuff looks permanent, not limited. But probably good advice to wait and see, just in case. :D

    With only 900 to play with I would get any limited items available now that you really like and hold the rest in reserve.(make sure your confirm button is on.)

    Then while you're waiting for squidport if any certain premium items keep calling out to you then go ahead.

    Before you know it you'll be out of donuts and wondering to yourself why you didn't buy 2400 instead. 8)

    Well, I kinda always buy all the premium stuff as I must have at least one of everything, so just heard that things from events dissapear after.

    But if there are buildings that need to be unlocked by earning special event currency, I think it would be worth it to spend donuts to rush finishing them if it looks like you might not be able to get them in time, because those tend to be priced at the 200 donuts range if you want to buy then after the event. So probably a good idea to make sure you have a few dozen donuts free at least to be your insurance that you get all the stuff cheap before the event ends.

    What this man said :) :thumbup:

    The rest could be bought anytime you want apart from the limited items of course, so maybe get 1of each of those but look at the suid port thread and add up the donuts you need for that update and go from there :D

    The duff bus is probably one of the coolest looking limited item. I would grab that. The Frinks Lab is cool too. I would wait for the Squid update first to decide the remaining donut purchase

    Squidport doesn't look like an 'Event', like Whacking Day, or Xmas, or Valentines...you'd probably refer to it as an 'expansion', I guess. It looks like the stuff will be here to stay.

    Definitely Duff Party Bus (since it's limited item) by the stadium! Burns' limo at his mansion and cop car by police station. If you decide to get Frinks' lab, get his MHV (limited item). Save the rest for squidport update! :)

    I got the same deal and bought few stuff: the blimp, otto, sideshow mel and bumble bee man. I had few donuts saved and before Gil's deal, I got Moleman and the duff party bus. It's so tempting to get the other stuff but I'm saving for the Squidport ! I felt like getting more characters to help me save some game cash.

    It is very cool looking, but disappointing for its lack of animation. I prefer the blimp, it may be ugliish but I love the animation.
