The Simpsons: Tapped Out Summer Donut Sale content update

"Back to School Gil Deal" 059

The offer.

The Summer Donut Sale, also known as the Summer Donuts Extravaganza, for The Simpsons: Tapped Out was released on August 4, 2014, with two new offers from Gil for donuts, cash, and prizes. Gil's first offer was for a Dumpster of 576 donuts plus a Premium Box containing one of 13 randomly awarded premium buildings. Gil's second offer was for a Tray of 132 donuts plus 10,000 money.

On August 8, 2014, an in-game update added a new icon (the Premium Box) to the build menu. When tapped, the icon activated a menu titled "Premium Stuff" and contained a section showing the Gil offer and how much time it had left before ending. This was in addition to being able to access the offer through the normal "Premium Stuff" menu that was present when the offer first launched (see Gallery for images).

The offer ended when the timer ran down to zero on August 12, 2014, at 8am GMT.


The price displayed in-game depends on which country the player's account is associated with. (Some of the price information for various countries)

When the player taps on: Tapped Out Gil Summer Donut Sale.png
Tapped Out Gil Icon.png Gather 'round the burning oil drum, children. Ol' Gil's going to tell you a summer vacation story!
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png I didn't know you were a storyteller Gil!
Tapped Out Gil Icon.png You'd be surprised at all the things Gil can do when he smells bored children with credit card wielding parents. Anyway...
Tapped Out Gil Icon.png Once upon a time, there was a weak, tired, grey haired old salesman who needed some money to pay for his kids' back to school supplies.
Tapped Out Gil Icon.png So he cooked up a bunch of donuts, because he couldn't afford enough flour for non-holed pastries, threw them in a dumpster, and tried to sell them to gullible kids like you.
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png This story sounds an awful lot like a promotional sale...
Tapped Out Gil Icon.png Dang it, they said children were unable to tell the difference between advertising and reality until the age of 12!
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png No... that would be the age of five.
The player receives the offer

Offer Accepted[edit]

Upon purchasing either offer:
Tapped Out Lisa Icon.png Dad, that's disgusting! You just bought donuts that come in a trash receptacle. Couldn't you have just raided the one behind Lard Lad?
If the Dumpster of 576 Donuts and Premium Box was bought:
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png Hey, it's not the donuts I'm paying for. It's the lack of OTHER trash in the dumpster I'm paying for.
If the Tray of 132 Donuts and 10,000 Money was bought:
Tapped Out Homer Icon.png It wasn't just the donuts that got me -- it was also the money sticking out from the tray of donuts.

Offer Declined/Tap Back After Receiving Offer[edit]
