The online store is where you can purchase simoleons, lifestyle points, social points and other items for real money (in app purchases) If you don’t have permission to buy anything then please don’t! In this post I will show you how the online store works and all the main items that can be purchased. There are a lot of items only available for a limited time which I haven’t included in this post so check the online store regularly to see the latest offers.
How can I get to the store? The store is the purple shopping cart button at the bottom of the screen:
There are 5 different tabs in the store (click on the links below to go straight to that part of this post):
In this tab you can purchase different amounts of simoleons for different amounts of real money (the amount of simoleons you get varies depending on the level you are on):
Lifestyle Points (LP)
In this tab you can purchase different amounts of LP for different amounts of real money (the amount of LP you get varies depending on the level you are on):
Social Points (SP)
In this tab you can purchase different amounts of SP for different amounts of real money (the amount of SP you get varies depending on the level you are on):
This tab contains different types of items to purchase with real money, some are only available in the online store while others have been available in the game previously, usually a prize by completing a quest or event in the time limit (they do bring these quests and events back sometimes so keep that in mind):
In this post I will show you all the main items that can be purchased, I will not be including time limited packs in this as they change so much I could never keep this post up to date.
How do I know if it is time limited? There will be a timer underneath the cost of that pack so you know how long before it disappears, although these packs do return so it won’t be gone forever. Packs without a timer are available until you purchase them:
Automatic Pool Cleaner– place one in every pool to keep your pools clean! The first one you buy is free, then after that they cost S600 (you can find it in the pool items tab after purchasing) I love the pool cleaner, I am a bit lazy and really don’t like cleaning the pools manually so with this you just put them in the pool and you will have sparkling clean pools!
One Mystery Box Key– used to unlock a mystery box in the mystery box shop. One key will earn you the loot box but you can save up your keys to get a bigger box
Three Mystery Box Keys– used to unlock a mystery box in the mystery box shop. Three keys will earn you the bounty box but you can save up your keys to get a bigger box
Sports Pack– contains a ping pong table, putting green and basketball court
Women’s Overalls– once purchased you can find the overalls in the outfits section and the shoes in the shoes section of the wardrobe for your female adult sims
Swimsuit Bundle– contains swimsuits for female adult, teen and preteen sims and mankinis for your male adult sims
NOTE: you will only see this pack if you have built the costume and swim store
Moschino Capsule Collection 1– contains clothes, shoes and a swimsuit for your adult sims
Moschino Capsule Collection 2– contains clothes, shoes and earrings for your adult sims
Currency Bundle– contains simoleons and LP (the amount varies depending on what level you are on)
Additional Sim– buy another sim slot for your town to increase your maximum capacity from 34 to 35 (too expensive if you ask me!) This is time limited but it returns often
Laura Craft– Laura will help you make arts and crafts items during a live event. When you buy her, you select the item you want her to make from the options: 200 candles, 300 pottery, 450 jewelry or 500 glassware (the amounts seem to differ for most of you and I have no idea why that is!) (you will unlock all the options once you have unlocked all the stations) and you will be able to collect them after 2 hours. This is time limited but returns with every live event, she only lasts for one live event so you have to buy her again if you want her help for the next live event
Simchase: Boost– The boost helps you complete simchase in the time limit. In every episode of simchase you will have 1 challenge already completed, 50% discount on your mastery lessons and 50% less sims required to complete a task (for example if 6 sims are needed normally you would only need 3 with this boost) This is time limited but returns with every simchase, the boost only lasts for one simchase so you have to buy it again if you want another boost in the next simchase
Survival Kit– The survival kit contains tools to help you with the Influence Island event, it includes an extra chocolate bar per challenge, 1,000 bonus Network Credits, the Survival Tip action to be used once per challenge that gives 10 influence and 5 bribes which when your sim is within 15 points of success it will guarantee success (bribes will never cause you to hit the red zone) This is time limited but returns with every influence island event, the boost only lasts for one influence island event so you have to buy it again if you want another boost in the next event
This tab contains deals that do not cost real money, most items cost LP or SP, some items are only available in this tab while others are also available in buy mode or the clothes store but are cheaper than they would normally be. These deals refresh every 2 days so check back often to see new deals. The create a sim packs can only be purchased once as you will have unlocked those items for good but some buy mode items can be purchased more than once. You can also collect bonus simoleons reward from this tab each time the deals refresh:
What does the VIP button mean?
You may have noticed the VIP button that appears on all items that cost real money in the online store, these are VIP Points, the more items you buy, the more points you earn:
The more points you earn the higher your VIP level will be and the more perks you will unlock, for example, bonus simoleons in store packs, time extension tokens and daily rainbow cake slices:
I’ve purchased something from the online store but I can’t find it, help!
You may need to restore purchases in the settings, to do this click on the settings button (the 3 dots) and then click on the i button, this will take you to the info tab and from here you can click restore purchases which should add any packs you have brought to the game if they aren’t already there:
