Buy seven FarmVille Vineyard items, get a Flowery Fountain for 'free'

FarmVille Flowery FountainOr rather: Spend gobs of Farm Cash to get this exclusive item. Zynga has put out a limited-time promotion in FarmVille that will reward players who buy seven items from the new Vineyard with a Flower Fountain decoration. Normally, this would be business as usual, but it's all in the execution.

Zynga has created a Vineyard Collection page that displays a number of decorations from the theme. It's accessed through the Market by clicking a button on the Flowery Fountain decoration that reads, "More Info." This opens up a new page titled simply "Vineyard Collection."

Once you buy all seven of these items with Farm Cash, the Flowery Fountain will be added to your purchase. Just to be clear, the minimum you'd pay for this Flowery Fountain is 131 Farm Cash, or a little over $20. (Alright, that and seven other items, but you get the point.)

The promotion only lasts for another six days, so if you're into "free" item promotions, you better scrounge up that 20 or so clams quickly. However, we sense a trend brewing in FarmVille. Depending on how successful this promotion is, Zynga could soon release more promotions like this, offering arbitrary decorations only after spending so much Farm Cash. We're not sure which is worse (or better, depending on your stance on virtual goods): spending over $20 on seven items in order to get an eighth, or spending twice that for a bonus that will last forever.

Would you ever buy this amount of items with the promise of an additional item? What do you think of this new approach to selling items in-game? Sound off in the comments. Add Comment.
