CLOSED! DD (Daily Deal) Rotation & Sales Help: Started 1 April; Ended 21 May

This rotation has finished!

... But there is now a whole new list of deals for you to track, so please head on over to the new May 2014 DD thread hosted by the lovely Ximph!
.


Welcome to the April 2014 Daily Deals Rotation List! :D

Want information on using the Complete Your Set discounts and calculating your best deal - Check post 2
Want some useful links to get the most out of your Simpoints - Check post 3
Want to know about the DD Stalker community, see some great builds and video fun - Check out post 4




UPDATE 2 May: Price Reductions!MeldisElvellon and Miyra_Jade noticed that a number of sets have been reduced in price! Their DD price, however, remains the same so the discount % is correspondingly lower, in on case we get an impressive negative discount. I have highlighted these changes in the list below with [ :arrow: new price / new discount% ]
.

UPDATE 28 April: Around We Go Again!Hoping that everyone who missed out on the lightning fast deals gets another chance at a bargain, our favourite Spring list is repeating for a second time :-) This page shows you all the deals in the list, but to know when we expect them to appear don't forget Jodi's Awesome DD Schedule Calculating Spreadsheet :thumbup:
.

UPDATE 27 April: Petition to stop the 30 second sell-outs! As we approach the end of this first repeat, we're still seeing too many popular deals selling out so fast that many, many, Simmers simply can't buy them. If this upsets you (and it should upset EA since they are losing money we're desperately trying to give them!) please comment on Jodi's petition thread: A Plea to the Store Team - Stop the 30 Second Sell-out of the Daily Deal. The Store team do monitor this forum and do act to solve problems, so let's make sure they know about this one!
.

UPDATE 14 April: 1st Repeat Begins! Well, it does look like this 'new' list started on 1st April as a variation of the older March list. But, to make it even weirder, the last 100 or so deals are the same items and sets that were offered on the October 2013 DD list!! Different order and different prices but the "same old stuff" :?

Don't forget, you can use The Awesome DD Schedule Calculating Spreadsheet to help work out exactly when the deal you need is going to reappear.

.

Is This A New List? The March 2014 list started doing something very strange after April 1st and a Store maintenance; new deals were being added into the list, something that we've not seen before and then, today, 11 new deals in a row were added?!? Also, the March thread had become VERY long, and so, thinking this might indeed be a new DD list somewhere along the line, I've started a new thread, right here, right now :-)

How does the DD rotation list work?

All items on the list appear on the Sims 3 Store Daily Deal page in numerical order, typically for one or two hours - However, some very popular items can sell out before time, especially when the list repeats. When the last item has appeared, it repeats some or all of the list starting at #1. The problem, on the first rotation, is that we don't know what the last deal on the list will be so constant vigilance is required!

This list started in the morning of 8th April. Previous lists have repeated several times, some did not repeat at all, some repeated but didn't get quite to the end of the list. There's no guarantee that this one will work in the same way as any other list :roll:

Following these DD threads (see the link back to the previous thread below) is also a good way to keep track of what sales prices have been, so you can budget those valuable SimPoints wisely. If you're patient, you can usually find something on sale and it's a good idea to know what price range a particular item has gone for in times past. :mrgreen:

If you wish to check or compare the previous DD rotation please refer to the OLD March 2014 DD List thread


When shopping from the DD, make sure to keep these threads in mind as well as they can help you decide, budget and prioritize:

Free Items: Just to note, see something free, pick it up. It may not stay free for very long or may even be "vaulted". Check this list often as things can change often.

Items not in Set: This is a list of store items that don't come in a set. It also includes info about items that you can only get from sets.


Thank yous

To the previous thread keepers: Mmdrgntobldrgn, 2Mahawk and, of course, becomingjenn Thank you for keeping us all up to date on previous sales and trends. Letting us know what we've missed or what is coming up (in the cases of repeats) Thank you!

    ALWAYS Check the Set Page, NOT the DD Page!

    If you already have items in a set that on DD and have a CYS discount, or indeed already own the whole set, the DD page itself may not show this.

    To make sure you see the actual price you will pay (including any CYS discount) or confirm that you already own the set, click on the set title to see the full details and that page should show your correct price.


    Getting Great Discounts Using Complete Your Set

    The 'Complete Your Set' feature introduced on (about) 17th July is a great new way to bag amazing deals on the sets you want - especially if you make use of great DD discounts or, better still, the FREE items.

    The Daily Deal Stalkers Research Team in association with our Mathematicians In Residence, Shogo_Yahagi, Jaquaine and PakaJynx, have some very useful advice to offer:

    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).

    Calculate the CYS Discount On A Compilation or Combo
    The same 90% rule still applies but the trick here is working out which set(s) within the compilation have the most expensive items because that will give you the best discount on the compilation - it may not be the most expensive set and is seldom properly balanced. PakaJynx gave us this example for the Island Escape compilation which normally costs 2400 but the total cost of all the items in the three sets is 3028:

    Island Villa 300 (cost of all items = 381)
    Full Tiki Set 575 (cost of all items = 872)
    Tiki Outdoor Party 1600 (cost of all items = 1775)

    If you own the Full Tiki set that would count for 872sp out of the total 3028sp, about 29%. Then using the normal formula (2400* .9)-(872 * .9) you should see a CYS price of 1375sp

    Stack Your Discounts
    CYS discounts are applied in addition to any Sale page or Daily Deal discount so if you know a set you're after is going to be on sale or is on the DD rotation it's worth waiting to get two discounts in place of just one.

    These handy calculators should give you a good estimate of your final price when stacking CYS with a Sale or DD discount:

    :arrow: From Elianahere: Just type in the CYS and DD numbers to get your best price: http://elianahere.jwhostings.net/

    :arrow: From APotts: Type in your CYS and the DD discount % to get your best price, or see what % will give you a set for free: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AjBxKQ-zJWrQdEIyaFVjWHgxVWhzSE41eXBvU3dCY1E&usp=sharing#gid=0 (can be downloaded so you can play with different numbers.

    If you love doing the sums yourself, the information below should help you work out what your final discount price should be or you could use one of the calculators above.

    We have Jaquaine to thank for her help in calculating the DD+CYS discounts. This is especially useful when the DD list repeats because you can now check what your final price is likely to be and budget your simpoints accordingly.

    The equation is Your Final Price = (DD Price * .9)- ((Full Price * .9) - Normal CYS price)

    So, using an example Wallin gave us:
    Let's say there's a set for 1000. You own some of it already, so your CYS price is 800. Then it comes up on the DD at 50% off, so the DD price is only 500.

    Following the formula:
    Full Price = 1000
    Normal CYS Price = 800
    DD Price = 500

    (Full Price * .9) - Normal CYS Price → 900 - 800 → 100
    (DD Price * .9) - 100 → 450 - 100 → 350

    (1000 * .9) - 800 = 100
    (500 * .9) - 100 = 350

    So you should expect to only pay 350sp, or something very close to that.



    Paying Full Price Is Sometimes Worth It!
    As unbelievable as it sounds it's true!

    Shogo_Yahagi gave us this example:

    1) Go to the Gothic Glamour Home Office Set. Buy the Scary Stare Statue for 25 SP.

    2) Now buy the Home Office Set for your new CYS price of 345 SP, for a total spend of 370 SP you've bought a set priced at 408 SP; now watch the dominoes fall...

    3) Go to the Gothic Glamour Living Room and Home Office Collection. Hit your shiny new Download Now button to get your Free Gothic Glamour Living Room Set.

    4) Go to Technophobe No More. Hit your shiny new Download Now button to get your free MultiTab.

    5) Go to the Oh My Goth! Compilation. Hit your shiny new Download Now button to get your free Steampunk Savvy Set, Gothique Sleeping Room, and Gothique Living Room sets.


    You now have a compilation of five sets valued at 1750 SP plus a PC item worth 500 SP for only 370 SP! :thumbup:

    It works because the first item you buy in a set that is CYS enabled takes more off the price of the set than you paid for the item. But this only works for the first item.

    Normally each item you buy only reduces the set price by 90% of the cost of the item but for the first item you also get a bonus of 10% of the whole set price. If you buy the first item in a set at full price, your discount is equal to (10% of the Set Price) - (10% of the item cost).

    The 10% of the item cost that you lose is the difference between what you pay and what you save. Therefore the more expensive the item is that you buy the less you will save.


    Free Stuff Is Always Worth It
    Take this example calculated by Murphysluck:

    Some time ago the week-end freebies were two items in the Club Vaindenburger Den set, and that set was also discounted by 40%:

    However if you got only the two free items and then went to the Club Vaindenburger Den set page in the Store you would see a CYS price of just 155 that's an impressive 69% discount!

    Then, now you've got the Den, why not get the Club Vaindenburger study as well as part of the Club Vaindenburger Relaxation combo which is now only 295. So, by picking up the two FREE items you can get both Club Vaindenburger sets for a total price of 450sp - that's a tasty 50% discount! :thumbup:


    Buy The Venue First
    NOTE: This advice is currently contested. The "assumed" values for venues may not be as substantial as previously thought. There have been documented reports that purchasing Le Cinema Plumbob and The Stones Throw Greenhouse will get you either a very large CYS discount on the compilations that they are part of or even, potentially, make them free. Not all venues will be as significant. In particular the Regency Arcade appears to be have been greatly overvalued. Until such time as we can get up-to date values for the venues please use caution and only buy them when their price is acceptable to you on its own; do not pay more for them than you are happy with just to get an extra discount on a compilation.

    There is one slight problem with doing the maths on compilations and that is when a venue is included.
    The problem is that you cannot see the true total cost of a venue. You will normally see a price for any PC that is included but the various build/buy and CAS items are not usually available individually so you do not know how much they would cost and, of course, there is some value in the build itself. Generally venues are worth a lot more than their normal value.

    For example the March 2013 compilation (normal price 3250) includes the Live, Laugh, Love set (normally 1770) and Le Cinema Plumbob (normally 1900). However, although they appear to be close enough in value they have totally different effects on the CYS calculation. Again, let's use PakaJynx's example:

    We're going to assume a reasonable 3500sp total value for the Cinema, due to it having 2 pieces of PC, which is slightly over the value of the arcade in October 2011 at 3355sp. {NOTE: These values, especially for the Arcade are contested. Recent purchasers suggest that the value of the Arcade is closer to 2000sp}
    March 2013 price = 3250
    LLL value = 2220
    Cinema value = 3500
    (Set Price*.9)-(Item Cost*.9) = CYS
    Buying LLL: (3250*.9)-(2220*.9) = 927 → 925
    Buying Cinema: (3250*.9)-(3500*.9) = -225 → Free


    As you can see, just by buying the slightly more expensive venue we get the other set for free but doing it the other way round would leave us a big CYS price! Similar effects are seen in other compilations that include a venue.


    In Game Only Sales

    On previous threads this post reported all items that are not listed on the main Sale! page but are on sale 'in game' only.

    It seems that, apart from some of the venue related premium items, there are now few sales that are not also on the website. So, for the moment I will not be maintaining this part of the list.

    Though, if anyone does find a hidden stash of in-game only bargains I will add those details here.


    Note about weekend only deals

    It would appear that the Store team used the excitement over the 2013 Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals to stop offering the week-end freebies :(

    If anyone spots a free item, on any day, do let us know ... we sure love free stuff! :lol:

    How Do I Make Sure I Don't Miss A Deal?

    Thalia_NL told us about this very handy add-on, plug-in, extension ... whatever you want to call it.

    If an item/set you want is going to come up any minute now and you can't keep constantly watching the screen, try this add-on:
    Just select the title of the current object on screen, and go to your alert inbox to add an "alert if text changes to (desired item/set name)". Warning: its case-sensitive, so its better to copy-paste than entering the name by hand.

    You MUST keep the browser open but you don't need to stay on the Daily Deal page open. You can switch to another tab, and do anything else you like in the browser, just don't close it! Alerts are sound, but hearing impaired simmers can also select the message box option

    It's a lifesaver!

    Also: Do not select the clock element, or you'll get an alert every second!

    For Firefox
    [url]https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/alertbox/?src=cb-dl-rating [/url]

    For Google Chrome
    There was an 'alpha' version available a couple of years ago but that link has disappeared :-( Please let us know if you find something that we can use!

    Twitter
    There is Store stalker is on Twitter! @TS3StoreStuff tweets details of all the deals. Unfortunately this is not an EA automated system so the tweets are often sent some time after the deal has started, sometimes up to fifty minutes late! Even so, and especially on the first rotation of a list and for deals that don't sell out very quickly, it could be a good way of getting notice of deals.


    How Do I Know What I've Already Got?

    WARNING: Just because you bought the set does not mean that the Store will show that you own each item in that set! Mmdrgntobldrgn has come the rescue with a Page titled "Those Pesky Duplicates" :evil:

    It is quite easy to see an item at a bargain price and buy it without realising you already have it as part of a set or compilation. EA will take your money and you won't see any benefit from having bought the item twice.

    So ... if you need help keeping your store items organized and accurately track what you actually own, crinrict has a wonderful tool that she has made available for free, called the <a href="http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/475665.page">S3SBrowser</a>.

    It really is the most useful store item manager we've seen!


    Clothing: Teen? Adult? Elder? How To Tell
    Store descriptions are often too vague to be certain which generation the dress or suit we are looking at is for, sometime even whether it is male or female!

    Thankfully angelchrome has come to the rescue with a great tip which proves that a picture really is worth a thousand words! :D
    The best way is to view the thumbnail image. In other words if you right click the clothing picture and select "view image" (or the equivalent in whatever browser your using) there's a code in the URL.
    What to look at is right after "skins/" before the name of the item, a two letter code.

    To use Me1620's examples from above, the image URLs are:

    1. http:/na.lvlt.sims3store.cdn.ea.com/u/f/sims/sims3/sims3store/skins/tfBodySchoolLongVGather/Thumbnail_300x300.png

    2. http:/na.lvlt.sims3store.cdn.ea.com/u/f/sims/sims3/sims3store/skins/plumBodySchoolLongVGather/Thumbnail_300x300.png

    1. "tf", 2. "plum"

    It's a breeze once you know what to look for:
    EF, EM, EU (elder male, elder female, elder unisex)
    plum, AM, AU (adult male, adult female, adult unisex)
    TF, TM, TU (teen male, teen female, teen unisex)
    CM, CF, CU (child male, child female, child unisex)
    PM, PF, PU (toddler male, toddler female, toddler unisex)
    Easy when you know how! :-)


    Searching The Store

    Trying to find items using the Store catalogue can be a bit of a pain with all that navigating between sections, but Chimark noticed that you can use the Search tool to get a very useful view of the entire Store that shows what you own, prices and what is on sale all on one page!
    1: Go to search at the top of the page
    2: In the first drop down box choose "store"
    3: In the second drop down box, leave as "Store Category" (it will be there by default, if not choose this)
    4: Where it says "Search" type "*" without the quote marks. This is a wildcard
    5: Then press the search button - this will bring up ALL items
    6: On the left hand side you will see various categories. Choose the one you want, such as "Buy" for buy only objects.
    7: Below the category option you will see a Price check list. Check the price range you want - now you have the price range and the category
    8: Finally look at the list on the right and you will see at the top of your list "Filter by", choose how you want to filter or sort; such as lowest to highest price or whatever.


    How Do I Know Which Set is The Best Value?

    Not only do EA sell items in sets they create themes of related sets (like the Ultra Lounge) so they also combine sets within a theme into 'super sets' (like Critter Comforts & Forest Bedrooms) and then they create compilations mixing up all sorts of sets! How can you work out which is the best value for the items you want? Especially when they have random discounts with sales, daily deals and even special giveaways! :?: :?: :?:

    You can use crinrict's S3SBrowser for this but the lovely Mmdrgntobldrgn has also created a couple of very handy tables comparing the prices and typical discounts for the compilations so you can quickly check if the prices make sense for your wallet and if they offer good value against the individual sets.

    Check out:
    Mmdrgntobldrgn's Sims 3 Store Big Compilations
    Full Sets and other Combinations


    What About Single Items Not In A Set?

    There are quite a few nice items, particularly clothing, that are only available individually; you will not find them in any sets. Because individual item Deals can sell out very quickly it's good to have a quick way to check whether an item can only be bought separately or whether you might get it as part of a set you plan on buying.

    Once again crinrict's S3SBrowser can be very helpful for this as well but it might actually be quicker to check 2Mahawk's very handy Easy to Miss Items thread. :thumbup:

    I too haven't caught up on the last thread yet, but I just wanted to drop in and say "hi" to the new thread, and say thank you to Adrian for setting it up, and to everyone keeping it active!

    This thread has that "new car smell." :)

    Hello and welcome to the New DD Stalker thread!

    We are a fun, slightly wacky, highly obsessed group who encourages, supports, and sometimes laughs at each other in our monitoring of the Sims 3 Store Daily Deals. I am Meg and I have appointed myself (no complaints or “boo”s, thank you :P ) the unofficial Welcome Wagon.

    I have been stalking the DD since April of 2013 when the then “list that never ends” (the list after it actually truly became the list that never ends when it repeated six times and then hijacked the list after it for a partial seventh repeat! :x :shock: ) began with the coveted Stones Throw Greenhouse for 950 SPs! :shock: :shock: :shock: (You can check out all of the joy, despair, and excitement that list caused <a href="http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/669001.page "> here</a>) Since then I have been hooked!



    An Incomplete List of Our DD Stalking Friends:


    I am starting over with this new list. We've had so many new friends and some who are no longer with us, so I figured why not start fresh? I'f you'd like to share, please do

    For our new DD members, courtesy of <a href="http://mypage.thesims3.com/mypage/Me1620">; Me1620 </a> who compiled these terms for us, we thought you may like to have a list of the DD lingo.

    - A Jen or Pulled a Jen - quoting your own post instead of selecting the edit button (Meg1626; Meg) - read where Jen pulled the first "Jen" and where Meg coins the phrase
    - An Adrian/Brett Confusion - two simmers designing on same lot (from DDSBA thread) (bouquetcatcher; Jen) - see this post for the incident creating the confusion
    - OE or Offline Existence - a more accurate term than Real Life (RL) for what we do when we are not logged in to the DD forum (silencedsong; Aleyn)
    - completicitis - a symptom of the DDholic syndrome; the uncontrolled desire or need to purchase every item available in the Sims store (Meg)
    - SSA or Sim Store Addict - a simmer who ignores OE and spends most of his/her waking hours in the DD thread or who interrupts sleep with alarm clocks set for every two hours (APotts; Alli)


    Let me know if anything else should be added, taken away, or revised. I hope this helps newbies and oldies alike!

    Don’t be afraid to post and ask questions. Those are the main reasons we have all come together to form the best group on the TS3 forums! :mrgreen: 8)

    Thanks for the new thread! I'm happy to see a new rotation, and thrilled to see that the Gothique Library is on it (though, I am a bit bummed that I missed it this first go 'round). It's one of the few things I don't have; I just couldn't make myself buy it even when it was 40% off at one point because I already own the Book o' Spells. I was hoping there'd be another rotation with amazing deals, and that the Library would be on it. Yay that it is!

    Ah, new thread! Thank you Adrian!

    Meg, you can re-add me to that list if you'd like; I'm Lissa. Thanks!

    On this new list I'm hoping to see some single items with high discounts. Preferably ones on my wishlist :P And Faire Furnishings+Attire would be a welcome sight indeed.

    I know I haven't posted in a while but I have been reading what everyone's been up to (all 394 pages!). I don't really need to stalk the deals since I own the store (everything except the new Bakery 8) . I'll get that soon but no rush since no sale price) but this is just such a friendly "family" that it is the first thing I read when I come on the site. I hope everyone is able to snag whatever it is they're stalking. I'll keep rooting for you all from over here on the sidelines.
