Make Me an Offer – huh?

Just seen the latest rip off in the Store – Make Me an Offer – and I’m a little confused.

This was my offer:


So all of those items together would cost 1,561 points but if I buy them all now I can save 230 points and only use 1331 points. But I already own some of those items so why would I want to buy them again? Wouldn’t the whole point of this be to offer me things I don’t already own? I clicked on the individual items/sets and these came up:




So if I buy them all individually it will only cost me 581 points (including the exclusive shirt costing 100 points). That’s 750 points extra that EA want to charge me. For stuff I already own. In monetary terms 750 points = £4.50/$7.50.

Am I missing something or is this the most blatant rip off yet in the Store?

  1. I don’t know about rip off, but it certainly isn’t taking into account what we do and don’t own. I tried it yesterday as a test, and it gave me five random items, four of which I already owned, and one was a wedding gown, that I could have for 320 sp’s.
    I just closed the page, and once again marveled at EA’s utter stupidity.

    Now that the sims 3 series has ended, there is no excuse any longer for me to buy any of their products. I did swear off doing it, one time, earlier back in the series, but as a friend pointed out to me – my refusal to buy from their store, or their EP’s was just hurting me, and not them at all, so I decided to finish out the series, and lay that all to rest, since I will NEVER buy their arcade, sim social pokemon plastic Sims 4 game.


  2. I thought it was the stupidest thing ever created. They aren’t really offers. The items aren’t, in my opinion, worth it. I will admit that I do like their “Complete the Set” feature.

    Granted, I haven’t been playing the Sims 3 for a while now (other games and life in general have taken my attention) and I didn’t even bother with Into the Future and Movie Stuff. I’d rather them just end the series already and put it out of it’s misery. But, I guess, they’ll try to take as much money as they can until they kill it off.


  3. The web address reveals all … this is in fact “make mean offer”. After trying this out a few times and getting single CAS items I didn’t want, I finally got offered a world … that I already own.
