    Hey guys, just wondering if anyone else sees the new 'splash' ad for 3x discounts through MMAO (though the dates are wrong, so it's probably an error like the one someone found last time).

    Also OMG JUST HAD 10 SP SHOW UP! Not sure why, but it's the only SP I've gotten in ~4+ days. Someone is listening to us!

    Yeah, I see it too. I ran through some MMAO deals, though, and the discount rates look the same as normal. It's probably an ad that was set to go up around this time of year that's now out of date because no one's left to flip the "triple discount" switch.

    Sounds about right~ I know this happened once previously, in the time I've been back on the forums. So I'm not banking on anything, but will have to sneak a peek at MMAO tomorrow morning (used it this morning before going to the doctor around 8 am, so I've still got 12-ish hours before I can use it again).

    Good old EA~ breaking things they can't be bothered to fix since *insert year here*.
    I'm too lazy to even look it up. Totally not salty or anything. :grin:

    About the MMAO machine ad, I believe is an outdated ad
    Snag a Custom Bundle!For a limited time, receive 3X the usual discount! Make Me an Offer’s triple discount weekend ends Thursday, 6/5 at 10 AM, PST! Additional terms and conditions apply. See here: http://www.thesims3.com/community/news.html?selMonth=4&selYear=2014

    First of all notice the year in the hyperlink. Also, June 5th is not a Thursday. It was a Thursday in 2014. All the ads on the store main page are old. So many refer to new venues, sets and worlds that were released in 2013 or 2014.

    @Me1620 that's the first thing I noticed when I saw the ad; still, we can dream.

    @Nomiko13 thank you for my beautiful mirror! I love that set, and you got me the rest of Monarch Suite for only 75 SP as well, which further lowered my CYS for Palace of Versailles, so double thank you!

    Top 5 and CYS updated!

    @Nomiko13 can you please send some of your good luck my way? My ads paid out for just one day this week, and they're back to giving me nothing.

    If the points ever show up, I will gift again. I miss being able to do that. But, since I can't replace any SP I spend, I have to be careful with what I have left~ I hope you guys understand.

    @lauravonawesome What in tarnation is going on with your ads? :( My points are kinda sporadic. For some odd reason, points work best in the morning around 8AM for me 'til the afternoon, but after that, nada. :no_mouth: And we understand :) When I was nearly broke, I had to use my sp sparingly and couldn't gift for a while.

    Thank you @Kylieb191 for the three lovely gifts <3 You lowered my CYS for Frontier Finds and Steampunk :love:

    There are a lot of high priced items hun, you'd be best trying to see if you can split these up if possible. Which I think all of these are non-cys :) I'd also advise to take a look on the first page of this post.

    You're welcome @Nomiko13 , @lauravonawesome & @kitiara

    @Nomiko13 I wish I knew what was going on. But they've been broken since the maintenance, and only one day has given me any SP. None of the points for the ads I watched ever showed up; Mai from HQ said that she'd look into it, but things have only gotten worse since then~ I'm lucky to even see an ad now, and the ones I do get are black screens and the 'sorry, this video is no longer available'.

    Just popped over to the store site, and it looks like about 10 SP have been added to my account from ~2 days ago. I am beyond frustrated, and not being able to send people pretty things takes a lot of the fun out of my DD-stalking... I really hope that someone fixes this soon- I don't care how.

    @100alex001 welcome to the gifting board!

    You have a lot of big items on your list that are non-CYS, so I'm going to recommend what people suggested when I joined: to add to what @Kylieb191 already mentioned, take a look through those sets and see if you can add individual items from them to your wish list. If you can't, try adding smaller items; it ups your chances of being gifted and will lower your CYS (complete your set) percentage so that you can snag things for free or very cheap when they come up on the Daily Deal.

    As I mentioned in my reply to Nomiko above, ads have been broken for a lot of us and SP are in short supply. You'll definitely have better luck with individual pieces, rather than big sets.

    How to get the best value for your SP: visit us here.

    I guess I'll just have to keep crossing my fingers and hope I see an ad eventually. Then I can test it again and see if it actually pays out this time.

  • lauravonawesomelauravonawesome Posts: 2,900 Member
    @kitkat8828 welcome :)

    Since you've got a lot of big sets on your list, I'll offer the same advice as what was given to me. Try adding smaller items from those sets to your wishlist instead, and up your chances of being gifted (it'll also lower your CYS/complete your set, so that you can grab some of them for free or very cheap on the DD).

    Join us in stalking the DD specials here.

    Ads have been broken for many of us lately (and still are for me), so big sets aren't always doable for those relying on farmed points.

    @Kylieb191 thank you for my beautiful faire folk bench :)

    OMG. Watched 2 ads and they paid out!

    I don't get the big square ones anymore, meaning I can only farm points on my laptop now (since those videos don't play on my PC~ any idea why?), but at least it's something.

    Also updating my top 5, since I just found something pretty in my gift box :)

    Hey. It's been some time since I've been here. Sorry about that. I just want to post an update or to just comment.
    Before I do, thank you @lauravonawesome for the faire end table on the 19/05/17 don't think I thanked you.
    Thank you @Schwuschbingbang for the alight on the 15/05/17 don't think I thanked you either but thank you for that.

    I want to put my list on hold until I feel okay enough to resume being here, also I don't seem to have any ads popping up as of today but the former is the main reason. Haven't touched the game that much or kept up with some daily deals that I really wanted. Things have just been too tough and it's hard to do anything. Thanks for your time.


  • lauravonawesomelauravonawesome Posts: 2,900 Member
    @Sandpitturtle you are most welcome, and it's good to see you back. :)

    I have those days too, and I know how you feel~ i've been a bit burnt out as well, and have only played the game once this week. ads have been broken for a lot of people since the maintenance a couple weeks back, and i wouldn't doubt that's part of it.

    in the meantime, i hope you'll come say hi when you feel up to it and that things look up soon.
