FrontierVille Horseshoes on Sale!

If you didn’t notice yet – Zynga is having a sale on Horseshoes! 20% off all purchases of $40.00 (32 euros) or more.

While the horseshoes tab doesn’t give an exact date for when the Sale ends, I’m assuming it’s going to end Tuesday at 11:59PM EST – which is the same time we lose the Fourth of July Cherry trees.

Now is when the dilemma of spending cash on a Facebook game sets in.

If you know you are going to buy Horseshoes eventually, it might be a good idea to buy them while they’re on sale. Even if you only buy 5$ worth every once in a while, it still would be in your best interest. I haven’t played any other Zynga games, but I have played other Facebook games, and I can tell you from personal experience that I’ve only seen a sale on an in-game-cash-currency ONCE in the past year. So the likelyhood of Horseshoes ever going on sale again is quite low, and if they were, they probably wouldn’t go on sale again until Christmas-time.

It’s the Holiday Bear of Commerce!

Personally, however, I think this is the last time they will be on sale. I think that Zynga wanted to generate some revenue rather quickly, since FrontierVille is so new. I don’t blame them for this – they are a company looking to make money just like Nintendo or Electronic Arts.

But now I’m stricken with indecision! To buy or not to buy…

It reminds me of when Apple had a sale on iPods in Fall 2008. It was on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, and at the start of the Great Recession. The internet was abuzz with the news: Apple NEVER has a Sale.

Any of you Pioneers planning on taking advantage of the sale?

Or would you never spend money on a Facebook game?
