Buying Horseshoes with Facebook Credits

Facebook is currently giving away 25 free Facebook Credits to all users who play games. If you primarily play FrontierVille, you can use those credits to buy Horseshoes, the in-game premium currency!

I’ve had a few readers ask me how to buy Horseshoes with Facebook Credits. Instead of replying to you all individually, I’ve written a short tutorial on the subject.

Here’s how:

1. Click the “Get Horseshoes” tab on the top right of the game screen.

2. Select the amount of Horseshoes you wish you purchase. Hint: 10 Facebook Credits = 1.00 USD So if you only have 25 credits, the most you can buy is 15 Horseshoes for 2.00 USD.

3. Under Payment Options select “Facebook Credits”

4. Click Continue, and you will receive a pop-up confirming your purchase.

Et voilĂ ! You’ve got some free Horseshoes.

Today’s Wednesday, which means we’re probably getting an update today! Zynga doesn’t do “official” update days, but for the past two weeks it’s been on a Wednesday. So fingers crossed!


Free Facebook Credits!

Hey Guys!

I just woke up and accepted a gift from a friend, when I saw the following notice:

It’s kind of hard to see, so here is a close-up:

It says: Facebook Gave You 25 Free Credits You received 25 free Facebook Credits (a $2.50 USD value). Use them to buy premium items in your favorite games on Facebook. Go play!

I’ve heard other players talk about receiving this same notice when they logged into FrontierVille over the past couple of days, so if it hasn’t happened to you yet maybe it’s just taking some time for the promotion to go through all the players.

I’m not sure if this is a FrontierVille stand-alone promotion, a Facebook-Zynga promotion, or a solely Facebook promotion. Either way it was a fun Saturday Morning Surprise! If anyone can confirm that it happens for other games too I’d greatly appreciate it!

Happy Weekend!

UPDATE: It appears that this is a Facbook promotion and you can receive the credits for playing any game.
