If you've been waiting for that discount deal, EPs, GPs, and the Base Game is on sale! :o

- Sale discounts may differ across regions.
- Sale ends at 10 AM PDT, August 29th.

• Stuff Packs are not on sale.
• I do not recommend purchasing anything from the Origin store via a VPN. However, if you’d like to cross-check prices or discounts between regions, that is safe to do. :)

    It's too bad that Stuff Packs aren't on sale. I have all of the Expansion and Game Packs now.

    And here I was thinking I might bite the bullet and get Laundry Day when it goes on sale. Ah well.

    On the topic of VPNs... You can use VPN to download packs early during release but you can't use VPN to purchase the BG or packs cheaper. This is what I've seen mentioned here on these forums a few times. Just be mindful about this. You could be putting your account at risk.

    Oh good to know. I'll see if my daughter still needs any. I never know what's on sale because I have it all ... prices don't show up for me.

    I might pick up Island Living now! Not sure if I should wait for a better sale later on down the road though. Thoughts?
  • HestiaHestia Posts: 1,266 Member
    @Simsfreak711 A higher discount price would be worth the wait IMO.

    Thanks for the notification! Maybe I'll pick up Dine Out, since the bugs have been fixed.

    I saw this sale just now when I started my game and I told myself not to buy anything but yet I bought Seasons xD Now I really need to stop buy Sims-things for this month.

    Thanks for letting us know, Hestia! I bought Dine Out. I'm really hoping it's not super buggy.

  • HestiaHestia Posts: 1,266 Member
    @Rouenpucelle No problem. At the moment the only bug Dine Out has would be Sims not finishing their food. After they finish their drink, all Sims on the table stop eating. It’s a known bug though and if you come across it, here’s the Answers HQ link.

    Grabbed CL.. dang.. in here all EP are -50% (not IL -25%)
  • MykalelMykalel Posts: 3 New Member
    In game it says City Living is 50% off but when I add it to my cart there's no discount. What gives?
  • HestiaHestia Posts: 1,266 Member
    @Mykalel Does it still not show a discount when you checkout?

    *stares at bank account* gah. (also bummer about SPs not being on sale)

    For anyone wondering how much time they have to think: the sale runs until the 29th.

    Thanks for sharing! I bought City Living half price. Only four more expansion packs to go!
  • EA_MaiEA_Mai Posts: 764 EA Community Manager
    Hope you are enjoying the new packs, thanks for giving everyone a heads up about the sale @Hestia!

    Just a small note to avoid unpleasant surprises: sale is available until 29th of August, 2019, but it will end at 10AM PDT - something to keep in mind!

    No, even at PayPal payment stage it's still full price. All other 50% off Expansion Packs apply the discount except City Living and Get Together. No discount on that one for me either.

    Maybe those expansions aren't on sale for Australians?
  • MykalelMykalel Posts: 3 New Member
    Update - finally got the discount by going through Origin and buying it via Store Deals. The in-game link still doesn't work for me.

    @EA_Mai I’ve edited my OP to match when the sale ends. Have a good day.

    These days it's worth checking your favourite games bought on Origin. I still like playing Spore occasionally and found 'Creepy and Cute parts' pack going for 50% off under Extras. I hadn't known it existed!
  • DoctoBreeze333DoctoBreeze333 Posts: 1 New Member
    it says the expantion packs are 50% off but when i add one to my cart it says $39.99 still is anyone else having this issue?
