Sims 3 Store Daily Deal
« on: June 23, 2010, 10:03:36 AM »
Like so many online retailers, Amazon etc, EA is now doing a daily deal on store items.  Seems they started this on 6/22.  So, if you buy from the Sims 3 store, be sure to take advantage of this new feature!

Figures.  Today's deal is one I already have and yesterday I couldn't access the deal so missed one I want.  Ah well, c'est la vie.

Anyone know how long these deals are up for?  I keep missing them.

I am thinking that I will be checking the link as early in my day as possible so as to being able to "catch" the deal.  The deal is over when they have released 100% of however many they decided upon to sell at the reduced price.

I just went and checked via your link, (if I go to the store directly it always says there's nothing there), and noticed they now have a box with a question mark on or over it for what will be the next deal and they show the percentage of how many of the current item has been sold.  Today it's a staircase, (nice, modern one), and is 19% sold out.

The Sims 3 on facebook make an announcement each day about it. The first 2 were over by the time I saw it (which was first thing in the morning for me) today's deal was still going when I clicked the link but I wasn't interested in the stairs.

Today's Daily Deal is the Hacienda SET!  Four hundred seventy five Sim points make it a great deal IMHO!

Awww man!  I paid full price...I really hate that.  Buy something you really like and a little while later the same thing goes on sale. ::) :D

Dulcinea guitar today.  It's part of a set, SteamPunk I think.

Awww.  I missed it.   And all I keep getting is there is no deal today.  So how does that and the word "daily" compute?

I'm sorry, but that's just how it is.  If EA is putting things on sale to promote the game, it's going to be things that some people already have.  They're certainly not going to put brand new items on sale.  I realize you don't like it, but is there any real point to continue posting about it?
