Zynga's FrontierVille has just launched a new promotion with Intuit, just in time for tax season. The promotion includes two new missions, which are both fairly simple (and involve lots of begging friends to send you items) and in the end... you get a few boosts that will make your businesses automatically ready for collection.
One thing I can say with this Intuit promotion is that, it's not very, well, intuitive. Once you finish the tasks you get building boosts (which are good? I guess?), but there's no real sense that players will come away from this any more well-versed about Intuit than they were when they started. I had to look them up at Intuit.com to see that it's the company behind TurboTax and Quicken software (plus a bunch of services for small businesses), but I wonder how many people will really bother?
Anyway, enough marketing analysis for now. Here's everything you need to know about finishing these two new missions and claiming your free Intuit Business Boosts.
To start working on the Intuit goals, click the icon on the left hand side of the screen.
The first of two Intuit missions is titled 'Get Capital' and you'll need to do the following:
Collect Three Building Bonuses
This one's pretty self explanatory, collect daily bonuses from three of your buildings
Tend 20 Neighbor Animals
Go to four friends' properties and tend five animals each
Collect 20 Cashboxes
Ask friends for Cashboxes using the friend selector vs. posting a request on your wall. It's kind of a hassle, but fortunately my friends worked pretty quickly on this request today.
After you complete the goals, you are rewarded with three (3) Intuit Business Boosts, and you can share tools with friends via a Facebook wall post.
Then, the next mission is up -- Room to Grow. To complete this mission, do the following:
Collect Five Building Bonuses
Again, pretty self explanatory. Collect five daily bonuses from five more buildings.
Use Intuit Website Building Boost
Use one of the Buildings Boosts you got as a reward from finishing the first mission. You can find them in your in-game inventory. Note: A building boost will only work on a single business -- not all of the businesses
Get 10 Ledgers
Ask friends for ledgers via a Facebook wall post. I posted this request several times to make sure my friends could send them to me without any problems.
Once you've completed those three tasks, you will be rewarded with five (5) more Intuit Business Boosts and then the option to share toolboxes with friends.
And that, friends, is all you need to know about FrontierVille's new Intuit missions.
