FrontierVille: Energy and Debris items on sale today only!


If you're stuck on a quest in FrontierVille that requires you to clear out a certain number of rocks, thorns, skulls, cacti, or even grass, or if you've been looking for a way to increase your maximum energy in the game, today might be the day to consider purchasing said items from the FrontierVille market, as Zynga has placed all premium debris and energy items on sale for the next 24 hours.

This sale includes the following: Rocks, Skulls, Thorns, Grass, Wildflowers, All You Can Eat, and Beef Jerky. All of these are Horseshoe items, and they are the only items, as of this writing, that have been discounted. Unfortunately, this deal is pitiful to say the least, with most items being discounted - wait for it - just a single Horseshoe.

For the next 24 hours, you'll be able to purchase a Rock, Skull, Thorn, or Cactus for 7 Horseshoes, down from their normal cost of 8 Horseshoes. The All You Can Eat energy meal, which is worth 35 points usually costs 10 Horseshoes, but is "on sale" for 9, and finally, the Beef Jerky, which raises your maximum energy by 1 point, is now on sale for 27 Horseshoes, down from its original price of 30 Horseshoes. As for the Grass and Wildflowers, these items are new to the store, and cost a single Horseshoe each.

I wish I were joking with these sale prices, but unfortunately, I'm not. Seriously Zynga, a 1 Horseshoe discount? If you wanted people to take advantage of this offer, items would need to be at least 50% off, in my opinion. Only then would I even consider purchasing a Beef Jerky, as there's no way I'm spending the current equivalent of almost $4 of my real world money for a single energy point. But maybe I'm alone in this - is this really a good deal, and I'm just too cheap to notice?

Let us know what you think of this "sale" in FrontierVille. Will you purchase any of these items now that they are on sale for the next 24 hours, or are the prices still too high for your blood? Let us know in the comments.
