FarmVille Valentines Mailbox


With Valentines day around the corner get ready to celebrate it on FarmVille.


Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away so it’s time to get started collecting those Valentines in your Mailbox! As you collect Valentines through your Cupid’s Castle or by gifting, you can then redeem them for exclusive rewards like the Giant Teddy. Stay tuned because more prizes are on the way!





You’ll get your little Valentine’s Mailbox free the first time you play FarmVille after the update, and you will immediately be entered into Placement Mode. You can place the Valentine’s Mailbox on your farm now, or you can choose to place it in your Gift Box for use later. You’ll need to be level 5 or higher in order to place and use the Valentine’s Mailbox.






Once the Valentine’s Mailbox is on the farm you can click on it, then select “Look Inside” to see this window:





Valentine’s Mailbox works like many of our other item-gathering style events in FarmVille. You acquire Valentines through various methods, then “Use” them to place them in your Mailbox. As you accumulate Valentines in your Mailbox you can redeem them for exclusive Valentine’s Day-related items.
You can acquire Valentines by:

  • Harvesting your Cupid’s Castle.

  • Requesting a Valentine from your neighbors directly (by clicking on the “Ask for More” button).

  • Receive a Valentine from a neighbor who uses the Free Gifts page (or click on “Send Valentines”).

  • Purchase 5 Valentines at a time by clicking on the “Buy Valentines” button (for 5 Farm Cash).

  • Click on a Valentine-related feed from a neighbor.

As you put Valentines in your Mailbox you’ll see the gift meter on the left fill up. The physical look of the Mailbox also changes as you stuff it full of Valentines.

There are five different types of Valentines you can give or receive from your friends:





They all count as a single Valentine in the Mailbox.

You can also click on the “Comparison” tab to compare how many Valentines you’ve accumulated with your neighbors.

To get one of the special exclusive prizes, simply click on the “Redeem” button next to the prize you want—if you have enough Valentines (the available number of Valentines that are redeemable is at the top of the window) you’ll be asked to confirm the purchase.



If you hit “Accept” the prize will be stored in your Gift Box and you can share an extra prize with your friends.




There’s also a brand new quest called Love is in the Air! If you manage to get your favorite pig the sow of its dreams you can get some great rewards!





Stay tuned, because many more exclusive gifts are on the way!
