The Sims Freeplay- 15 Ways To Make Money and LPs!

I always get asked “how do I make money and LPs quickly?” so I have come up with a list of the main ways you can make money and LPs!

  1. Buy them– you could always buy them if you are struggling, if you were to buy one of them I would go for LPs over simoleons as LPs are harder to make!
  2. Level up– when you level up you get LPs. You can level up quicker by reaching relationship milestones that give you 100+XPs and by completing rows in hobby collections
  3. Complete goals– each goal you complete gives you a reward, whether it’s money, LPs or XPs and when you complete a selection of the weekly goals you receive more money and LPs.
  4. Increase town value– you receive LPs when you reach certain values!
  5. Garden and bake– if all of your sims are gardening you can earn loads of simoleons. If you are busy put your sims on gardening and baking tasks for that length of time, e.g. While you are sleeping make all your sims plant beans for 9 hours. Or if you have a spare hour or so you could set up a plant growing plot for lots of your sims as shown below and grow some carrots or corn over and over to make even more money! Remember if sims are inspired they earn more money!

  6. Pets finding treasure– the more expensive the pet the more likely they will find LPs but they mostly find simoleons
  7. Go to work– the more they go to work the more money they will make as they get promoted
  8. Party boat– the more neighbours you have the more prizes you get, you mostly get simoleons from this but it is possible to get LPs
  9. Competition center– this will give you a certain hobby and you enter a sim who has the highest level in that hobby for 24 hours and it will give you a position and a reward, if you are first you will get 3 LPs! You still get a reward wherever you are placed in the competition.
  10. Bingo hall– you can enter your seniors in this for a day, I have never won at bingo yet though!
  11. Hobbies– you get simoleons for finding a new piece and once you’ve completed the collections to collect the main prizes, complete it again for an LP reward! The cooking hobby is my favourite because you can make lots of money and LPs relatively quickly with several of your sims working on it at once! How Do I Have So Many LPs explains this in more detail.
  12. Collect revenue from car drives– if you buy the 1 story mansion you get a free car with it, you can use that to drive about town, click on the music notes and collect the money- the more expensive the car the more likely you will find LPs
  13. Daily reward– the mailbox gives you simoleons every 24 hours, the amount is based on your town value, the higher your value the more money you get but there is a limit on this
  14. Money from houses (house revenue)- click on the money and XPs signs on the town map for simoleons
  15. Free Simoleons/ LPs/ SPs from the paperboy- a paperboy appears in your town with a film reel in a bubble above his head, click on this to watch an advert, once you have watched it you will earn either furniture, simoleons, LPs or SPs! 

Don’t cheat! Using the time cheat is more trouble than it is worth, if you use it other things will go wrong with your game, for example:

  • Buildings take longer to build
  • Daily rewards don’t arrive
  • Babies take longer to arrive

It is possible to get lots of money and LPs without cheating, you just have to work hard.


Need Social Points? Watch this video: 

This method still works but they have unhelpfully made the social point flower cost 20LPs now instead of 5 so a bit more cooking is needed!

Thanks for reading!

  1. Hello, I love your blog and use it frequently ! I wanted to let you know that the amount of Simeoleons you get from gardening has changed. I had my extra Sim character I keep to do really long tasks or to garden to get some moola plant some garlic and the money was low when I went to collect. I clicked on the plot to plant again and noticed that a majority of them had been changed. Thanks EA ! You make the buildings and houses more and more expensive and now you won’t get as much back from planting ! I think it’s to get you to use real-life money for Simeoleons.

    • Thanks
      I’m sure it hasn’t changed, it may be that your sims are usually inspired when you plant, you make more when you garden if your sims are inspired

  2. Hi! I know that this may sound nosey but how many lps and simoleons do you have at the moment?
    I have $369,546 and 5lp. 😛
    Love your blog btw.

  3. I think I used the time cheat by accident- I didn’t know that it was a cheat! I used this about three weeks ago, will the cheat still be affective? I’m really stressing as I hate cheats! 😢

    • If you didn’t play much or collect your daily reward is should be okay as long as you changed the time back straight away but don’t use it again because it can really mess up your game

  4. Another way you can earn a lot of LPs is by buying cars for each house and sending them on drives all at the same time–I made 40 LPs in half an hour doing this!

  5. I find the quickest way to earn LP is to have a toddler play at the playhouse at the swimmingpool. When you collected all the toys, you get 6 LP.

  6. Hello! Your blog has helped me in all of the sims freeplay quests and I have finished all quests within time limit! And I just wanted to ask, last 2 or 3 days, I dont get that icon on the top left, which gives you free lp. Is this an error or something ? I didn’t cheat.
