    @Reachsims thank you so much for the gift a few days ago! And yes, you were correct, my top 5 was sadly and extremely out of date. My OE has been pretty hectic lately and I kind of disappeared from the forums because of it. Things are settling down now though and I have corrected that old top 5 here. Thank you again! <3

    @andreax0 , I was going to gift you something, but your wishlist violates a lot of the rules. For example, you have half of the Ultra Lounge items in your wishlist, but then you have the Ultra Lounge 2010 set listed later on. And you also have both versions of Sunlit Tides, which is completely unnecessary, because if you own the Gold you also own everything in the Standard! I understand using your wishlist as a way to keep track of what you want, but it's detrimental to Simmers who may wind up gifting you something you already own. Please clean up your wishlist to contain single items out of sets that you already own a part of, or whole sets that you want and don't own anything from yet. Basically, avoid duplicates!

    @ApparentlyAwesome , I'm not sure if you would get it for free - I'm always nervous to put in such a big investment without being guaranteed a green button. However, I did just buy the candy dish for 26 points and the alarm clock for 25 points. I didn't own anything from the set before, so it brought me down from 782 to 655 total points. I haven't bought it yet, because honestly I'm waiting for an answer to your question too.

    EDIT: I also just posted your question to the DD thread, because I figure the more people who see it, the more likely you are to get a response. Hope you don't mind!

    @Readalot1 I know! I'm working on the Futureshock Bedroom and not only do I have enough simpoints for the Super Sleeper, but I'm pretty sure (like 80 percent sure) that one would work, but Atomic Living and Dining... If I do it, that'll set me back on the Super Sleeper.

    I'm thinking should go for it and see what happens. I can build those points back up for the Super Sleeper assuming I find a lot more ads before the sale ends or Futureshock come back up, whichever comes first.

    ETA: Nope, it doesn't work. The original price of the set is 1, 377 simpoints, I don't own anything but the Pet Feeding Station now which makes it 782 simpoints for CYS, on this DD it's 445 simpoints. The things I do to learn, lol... :mrgreen:

    @ApparentlyAwesome and @Readalot1

    I posted a reply to your question about the AutoNoms, on the Daily Deal thread, but thought I would respond to you here, too, just in case:

    A really good tool for determining how much a set will be on the Daily Deal is Eliana's Calculator, found here: http://elianahere.jwhostings.net/
    where you can plug in the full price of the set, along with what the Complete Your Set price is, to determine what the Daily Deal price will be. If the number comes up to a negative number, then the set will be free.

    Another formula for determining how much the CYS discount will be is found here: http://simsdailydeals.proboards.com/thread/18/daily-deal-stalker-important-information with this part in particular that will help you:

    "Calculate the CYS Discount On A Set

    The basic rule for working out the CYS price is (Set Price*.9)-(Item Cost*.9) rounded up to the nearest 5sp.

    So, for example, if a set normally costs 1000sp and the price of all the items in it that you have bought individually is 300sp then your CYS price would be about 630sp (900 - 270)."

    So, the AutoNoms is $284, as you mention and the full set is $1377. You would multiply ($1377 x .9 = $1239.30)-($284 x .9= $255.6) = $984 is your new CYS price (thanks to @VGryphon) Putting that into Eliana's calculator you would pay about $449 while the set is on the DD for $782. Since the DD is already at $782, and you would be paying the $284 plus the $449 = $733, it would be a marginally better deal to buy the AutoNoms first, and then the Daily Deal.

    I hope this wasn't too confusing... :grimace: And if my math was wrong (which is entirely possible) someone please let me know. Again thanks to @VGryphon for letting me know. :smiley:

    Thank you so much to @scillakees , @charlotteprice , and @jbsquared2000 for the gifts. They are very much appreciated. My top 5 is wiped out again!

    Edit: I think I just discovered how to make a Thank You Thread! Mwahahahaha! Everybody will receive individual thanks there in addition to my lengthy post on the previous page of this thread.

    My Thank You Thread here. (Will be linked once I am allowed to link. Grrr.)

    Edit #2: Just used the CYS/DD calculator to discover that when the Bohemian Garden set comes up on DD later today I'll get it for 1 SP! So thrilled! Thank you so much to everyone who gifted me items from this set!

    Thanks to all those who have stopped by to say thanks and have updated their posts. <3 It's because of YOU that I do this.

    @Readalot1 - When you reach full member status, you may do a new post with your top five list so you can add links and I will edit your link in the directory to reflect the new post. Soon. :)
