How to get SimPoints???
« on: July 21, 2011, 02:00:17 AM »
I was looking through the sims3 store, and I saw like a million adorable things that I wanted, except you needed SimPoints for them, whereas I have none. Can someone please tell me how to get them? (Sorry if someone else posted this, but I'm new and still getting used to the forum...)

Hi amber!
Register TS3 base game - you should receive 1000 free SimPoints. Also purchase them with a credit card.
EDIT: Or PayPal.

Is there anyway to get some without having to pay for them?

Yes, as stated above:

You also get free simpoints with some of the earlier expansions, I think WA and maybe HELS and Ambitions? Does anyone know for sure?

Ah, yes, that's right. I have never purchased SimPoints, yet I have Barnacle Bay. HELS does not give SimPoints (guaranteed).

Only the base game and World Adventures gave you Sim points, 1000 points each. I don't think EA plans to do it in the future either.

As PJ said, only base game and WA give you free simpoints, 2000 altogether, if registered. In addition you get to download Riverview for free, with the base game. Other expansion/stuff packs, however, don't have this bonus, except when registered you get free rewards (with EPs only). There are occasional giveaways, hold via TS3's Facebook/Twitter pages. There was a Barnacle Bay giveaway recently, but you had to act very fast since the code worked for the first submitter only. So train your Ninja powers, people. ;D

It's a good idea to check the Daily Deal because every so often Simpoints go on sale, which is a good time to stock up on your points.
