    > Hi @Joh, so glad you found this wonderful community of deal stalkers, welcome!>

    > @KevinL5275 is absolutely right, buying at least one item in a set makes a BIG difference to your CYS price, especially if you can get those items at a discount. If you haven't done so already take a look at _ for some great advice on getting the very best deals. :)>

    > Free points are earned by 'watching' adverts on the Store pages Jodi @Me1620 has put up a useful post explaining most everything:>

    > The birthday thing was, I think, something EA did way back in the past and, as far as I know, stopped doing years ago! :( >

    > However! There is a birthday gifting thread where generous Simmers celebrate birthdays - it may not involve gifts but it's another great place to share the love:>

    > And talking of gifts, don't be embarrassed about creating a wishlist and contributing to the many amazing gifting threads in the Gift Gathering forum - and why not take part in a lottery or giveaway too :)>

    > Finally, never worry about asking 'basic' questions, this forum is just like the game itself - there is much to discover you may never know it all, and everyone loves sharing and helping. :smiley:>

    Thank you for all of the great links, @ajaxpost! Ha ha, I wrote a reply, using quotes from you, and it was rejected, since I'm too new to post links, lol! Soooo, starting over...

    I'm glad to be here! I've been lurking for a few weeks, didn't want to bother anyone, but you all seem so friendly that I relented and signed up. I am definitely a (newbie) deal stalker, so I'm glad there's a place for that here!

    I'm going to check out all the links as soon as I'm done my replies--- thanks again, it would have taken me ages to find them on my own.

    Bummer about the birthday prezzies no longer being a thing...

    I think I won't go near the birthday gifting thread, since I can't afford to reciprocate.

    I have a wishlist, but it's just for me, and my kid. Lotteries and giveaways sound interesting though, so thank you!

    I'm an admin/moderator on a few forums (not Sims related) so I can understand the extra effort and patience newbies involve--- but they often become the best of members when nurtured, so I always have time for newbies on my forums too. Thank you for your patience and kindness!

    > @joh - Welcome joh. We love when people find our thread. Please ask all the questions that you want. What is your username on the Sims 3 site? I can't find a user named joh. Also read this section on Getting Help with Owning the Store - Gifting, Lotteries and Contests. I recently updated it.>

    Thank you!>

    Thanks for replying!

    Our account is a family account, my ex-husband started it in 2010, but didn't keep it up as we got new things. So, it's under his name, but he never went there, or really used it. Should I post it here? Or is it better in a PM? He's very security conscious, so I don't know what to do about posting his user name publicly, and I can't get him on the phone to ask.

    @Me1620 -- I wonder if it has something to do with where you are located? Because I regularly get at least 400-500 but sometimes, like last night, get over 1000.

    Yep, that is one seriously chatty thread!

    The beauty of this DD thread was that Jodi @Me1620 organised all the useful stuff into linked posts and put an index on page one so that we could quickly skip to the bits we are interested in - like getting free simpoints, using the spreadsheets, working out CYS discounts. It does mean there's no need to trawl through 1000s of comments to find the original post with the information on ... well, unless you enjoy all the chatty stuff that goes on! :smiley:

    Welcome @Joh :) Glad you de-lurked and joined the fun. This thread is truly amazing and I continue to be blown away by the amount of work Me1620 and the spreadsheet team have devoted and continue to devote to the spreadsheet and this thread <3 To be honest, whenever I see a new person posting, I hold back and wait to see if ajaxpost responds... he is so articulate and provides the best information. He is soooo good at explaining!

    I do hope you're able to post your wish list as I know I would like to help you but understand if your ex doesn't want his name used. Is it possible for you to start your own store account while you're still somewhat new and don't own much? It would be harder to switch later on once you join the Own the Store Club with the rest of us Sims 3 Store Addicts ;) but totally understand if you decide not to if all your games are registered under his name.

    Thanks! I missed the index, sorry! Got to page 10, and have to sign off now, but will get back here tomorrow afternoon...

    The contest sounds wonderful, thank you for your generosity!

    I have no idea how to enter a build. I'll look into that tomorrow.

    My Kid loves making characters and playing the game, and I love building and renovating, but I've never uploaded anything before, it's all just been for me to build, and the Kid to play with. I re-do all of the venues we get, renovate everything in the game worlds that interest me, and build ridiculously huge mansions from scratch. I don't know what would qualify for the competition. I reno'd the Al Fresco Street Market recently, just have one more room to do. Also built a 9 bedroom mansion, with indoor pool, just finishing the decorating up on that one...

    Got to set my alarm to get the loveseat at 2:19AM, then Morocco at 6:19AM... Yikes!!!

    Thanks again for all the help, warm welcome, and general 'wonderfullness'!

    the future one.

    I've been working the store for a couple of months, with limited funds. Plus, we have store stuff you can't get anymore. Maybe I can get Origin to change the name on the account? I'll see, tomorrow.

    Thanks for all the help and patience, everyone!

    @Joh welcome to the DD thread and the forums. You probably don't need to read all 49 pages but definitely check out page 1. The last forum for this list was 1075 pages long before @Me1620 made us our new home here.
    @Me1620 haven't actually sat down and gone on a clicking spree for a long long long time, so maybe that's why I got a lot, then again who knows. It probably would have given me more but I got sick of clicking.
    @debbycanty and I'm on the other side of Australia and got 800 points worth last night but don't hunt them regularly anymore.

    Over 1000? Drool... I'm in Canada too. I turned off my ad block (d'oh!), and, tah dah!, the blue box appeared! I got a whopping 30! Not exactly a get rich quick scheme, but certainly better than nothing. I thought it was funny that they were all car, or car rental, ads. Not likely to send me to my local Jag dealership to kick tires... not when I have a perfectly stunning Bwan Speedster YL parked outside my palatial home!

    I did get Morocco Mystique, Trithone! I got the loveseat first, for 60 (at 2:30 AM!), then Morocco Mystique for 85 (at 6:30 AM!) I saved 35 points off of the sale price of 180, at 56% off! So, that was stupid, lol! (I am sooooo tired... but I'll always have Morocco...)

    @Joh since you didn't mean to say plum yes apparently stupid is a bad word, it showed the word it replaced plum with when I quoted the text.
    Also don't forget to add @ tags to people's names when you mention them, they should get a notification saying you mentioned them so they don't miss something important.
    As for the simpoints conversation I played the clicking game again for a bit while watching tv got 1200 simpoints and about 40 YouTube ads that don't work on my iPad.
    Should really go to bed now, it's not a great temperature for sleeping though, too hot. It's still 20 deg C. Goodnight all

    Hahahahahahaha... it was a bad word at my daughter's daycare, and she thought it was a bad word until she was about 8. Now we routinely fling it around with wild abandon, we've really let our standards slide since daycare... well this has been a good public reminder of how low I've sunk. Now I want to go chew gum... where will my depravity end? I'll be in jail for jaywalking by dinner time at this rate!!! :o

    I'm on the west coast of USA, so it was easy to get the loveseat at 11:19pm, but the full set wasnt until 3:19am. :( However, my sub-concious woke me up at 4am for some reason so I logged on and grabbed it. :)
    I'm a 44 year old married man, with a beautiful wife, a cat, and a simverted personality.

    I've admired that set for awhile now, I'm off to try it out! I hope you enjoy yours too, Kevin!
