    I'm kind of thrown off by the DD spreadsheet because of DST. I live in AZ, where we don't have DST. I'm going to go by PST for now.

    Well, DST just started up. Literally - just today. So the rest of us are now an hour ahead of you?

    Lol daylight saving time is silly like that here in Australia too, were some states have it and others don't. When we have daylight savings (now) there's like 5 timezones in our country. 3 out of the 4 east coast states have daylight savings, so one of the middle states has time half an hour ahead of the top east coast state that doesn't have daylight savings.
    Anyway @lasummerb at least it seems a way around it.
    As of April 24th 2015 I joined the own the store club. Thank you to those who helped in my journey.

    I was totally thrown off when creating the spreadsheet and realizing I had to adjust the time zones for the time changes. The spreadsheet was originally only central and eastern time zones. Over time I added other time zones, but I could not possibly cover all the time zones. In Canada, we also have some provinces that do not follow Daylight Savings Time. @lasummerb, I am glad you found a work around.

    @Me1620 Thanks. I'm from Seattle originally and I had to adjust to no DST once I moved to AZ, now I have to adjust again, LOL. Thanks again for making this spreadsheet, it's a wonderful tool to have. :)

    Hi all! I'm new here, and so glad I found this thread--- I've got tonnes of great advice from reading here, but have a few questions.

    First off, I want to get Morocco Mystique when it goes on sale tomorrow. Before it goes on sale (at 56% off) the Empyrean Luxury Loveseat goes on sale (at 26% off). I don't own anything else in the set, will I get a better deal with CYS if I buy the loveseat first?

    I've just read Angeljess26s' post above, regarding ads and points--- and am completely ignorant on the meaning of it, beyond the 800 points! I'm really interested in knowing any way to get points free, so any suggestions will be extremely useful, and appreciated.

    Also, I've read elsewhere about people getting birthday presents from the store. How does that work? We've been members since 2010, and have never got a birthday gift from the store. Have we missed putting a birth date in somewhere? I couldn't find a place to do that.

    Sorry if these questions are basic, but I haven't found the answers on my own, and am hoping you will be able to help!

    Thanks in advance!

    Looks like a good idea to get #598, and then pick up #600 for an even better deal. Thank you!

    Thanks, Kevin! Sorry I didn't put the deal numbers in, newbie gaffe... :blush:

    Any chance of help with my other questions, or a link to where the answers are? I've looked, but am thinking the advice is so basic that everyone (except me!) has known it for ages, lol! :smiley:

    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 http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/comment/14402835/#Comment_14402835 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: http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/comment/14402883/#Comment_14402883

    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: http://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/485125/birthday-directory-now-celebrating-majestyk-ruthless-kk/p1

    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 so much to discover you may never know it all, and everyone loves sharing and helping. :smiley:

    @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.

    Edit - @angeljess26 - 800 points! Wow. The most I find in one night is 200 sp and that is rare.
