Ha! I'm gonna call foul on this right now!
So, right after we have a resource sucking STS that cleans people out of all their sim cash, they offer this "deal" that you can only afford if you either have $1300 cash saved up or are willing to spend real money to have enough sim cash to purchase it.
It seems like a generous deal, because you're getting back what you spend, plus $100. But there are fewer people who can afford it in the first place because of the darn STS. If they were truly trying to be generous, they would just gift it to everyone, or offer it for simoleons which are a lot easier and faster to recoup.
It seems a good deal, but you have to buy simcash. Simcash that then you'll easily spend on the STS events cause... well you have a lot, why not? And like this again and again and again.
Sorry Firemonkeys, I will not buy simcash until you don't run events that I like. I stay with my 439 simcash, hardly saved up with tons of ads.
