Turns out that the tip we’ve received last week from those who attended the Dutch fan event were right after all.  Ambitions will NOT have the free 1000 SimPoints and will still be priced at $40.  Instead, after we register our game we get to download the Ultimate Career Bundle.  Thanks to Alexis for confirming this on Facebook.

Confirmed - no 1000 Simpoints with The Sims 3 Ambitions
