They have closed the Origin store. It is no longer possible to buy Simspoints through Origin.

@NatalieQuay  EA has taken origin.com offline, but the Origin app still works and still sells points.  I'm looking at the store page right now, which I found by searching for "simpoints" in Origin, and I can get far enough for Origin to ask me for my credit card info.

@NatalieQuay  Origin software is still installed for Steam players (TS4/Mass Effect LE), you can get Simpoints from it.

well that sucks, I was saving until my birthday to buy some of the last sets I hadn't gotten yet and then when I went to get SimPoints it just re-directed me to the EA page for buying games, but I will try going through the Origin app on my desktop to buy some SimPoints and if that doesn't work I will try the EA app.

 

Well I just tried to open the Origin app that came with my sims 3 games and I logged in and it kept telling I had to be online to log in-which I was, but it wouldn't let me log in, so I'm trying the latest version to see if that will work

 

**Just another update, in order to get SimPoints I had to download the new EA App and when you run it and click installed games-The sims 3 and scroll down, there is an option to purchase the Sims 3 currency, which will allow you to buy SimPoints, and I was able to get them that way.

@cameleon1952  Right, as the original post says, you can't use the store link to buy SimPoints anymore.  Instead, buy them through the EA App.  If you're not seeing the option, click Sims 3 in your game library, then click DLC, and "Sims 3 Currency" should be the first listing.  Click that and select the number of points you want, then proceed to checkout.
