It depends what you want to spend it on. If its a gold building, wait until a sale. If its this weeks crates, do it now. If you want to take a chance at the double your funds, spend it now.

Everything is a gamble, teach. Plus, we know there won't be a gold sale until after Aug. 3rd, sooo.:confused:

For further information I plan on using it for Gold Buildings. I like the income piece of the game and have pretty much tapjoyed myself out. I did pretty well with Tapjoy and have 2 churches and 2 pirate taverns and goodfella. I confess I did have one gift card that I used on a Rock Cafe..

Any future Gold will be for the other Rock and the remaining Gold Building GC and what the other one?

That's a lot of tapjoy gold... Good job! So, do you want a sale or a chance to double your transactions? That will be the decision maker?

Edit: the other gold building is the palm hotel

I bought gold today.. bought crates. I would buy it now, but remember that the chance is small to get it double.

This will probably be a one time thing. I am mainly interested in income so all gold purchased will go towards gold buildings. For some reason I don't like the randomness of the crates... (used tapjoy on 4-5 crates with no rares) not much of a gambler, and I feel that over time the scratchers will work out..

That's unlucky man. Got my first 175 gold from tapjoy and went for the crate. Got a rare Hybrid Supercar 135/126, uncommon Back Alley Scrapper 78/57 and a common OG Roller 24/28. I'm very satisfied with the outcome :)

Wait for the gold sale. Simply put, i don't trust the double up.

Wait for the sale. The double currency event rewards only 100 purchases per day. With this event going on, there's gonna be a lot of gold buyers and the odds are not in your favor. You said you don't like gambling with crates, well this is an even bigger gamble.

My advice is to wait for the gold sale and get a guaranteed 20% off.

Wait for the sale. Support only when it benefits you the most.

My friend, if there's one thing I have learned about this game it is to spend real money on things you can be certain of. Static gold items, gold buildings, and finishing upgrades are just about the only sure thing anymore. I lucked out with a 5 gun scratcher and got a kick-butt piece for it. Thats my claim to gambling fame. Oh, and all hood related modifiers. Those too. :D

The ultra rare crate xplosive is very nice if you 'do' feel like a gamble.

iPad and directly to their site.... Most of it was via free app.1-8 gold per install...but the last big one was three offers. The netlix sign up was 105 gold, superpass was I think 65 and the the blockbuster was up there as well...Those three paid for most of two pirates

I did have a gift card given to me a few months ago $20

So with tapjoy and the one gift card I have collected
2 churches
2 pirates
1 goodfella upgrade
2 sets of 3 on crates...
1 rock cafe...

Not too bad

That is what I want... And that palm hotel looks good but unless I get some teacher appreciation donations ( I never do) that won't happen..

Me either, after hundreds of threads about cheaters I feel like it's a waste of money or at least a disrespect from F/G!

I have only been attacked by cheaters a few times. Honestly they don't impact my game at all...I can be beaten by someone with 35k stats, so what matter is it to me if someone with 80k takes me...35 or 8O it's still a loss.. And a few that hit me and were cheating were eventually locked so I do know something gets done..

lucky of you! I know a couple of players (maybe just rich kids, very rich) with a volume of gold items increasing every day?!, hundreds of threads with the most obvious ones, plus a couple of things I met. kinda disappointed, in the past I've spent a reasonable amount.

I would and you did as well wait for the sale.

I would buy some post cards and send them in I think that is just as good of chance.

I know all the math people here might agree wait for the sale save 20 USD and buy 5 USD of those stamp post cards and have just as good of chance at winning double up unless they just throw the post cards away (which I do not think they would do.)

Anybody know anybody or ever hear of anybody winning from the post card option?

Don't bother buying gold, it's really not worth it.
