Welcome!

Hi there and welcome to Freebie Hunters! One of our favorite pastimes in Second Life is scouting the grid for fantastic hunts, sales, and gifts from all the wonderful creators. We thought we'd share the wealth and showcase some of our finds in this blog, with an emphasis on the goodies available in the many SL hunts occurring every month. We do our best to show ALL items from a hunt and in the manner the creator intended, but this is not always possible.

An important reminder - All deals posted are subject to the whims of the item creators, and are often offered for a limited time (from hours to months). We do not guarantee the items are still available, and the creators are under no obligation to give anything.

Thank You to all of the creators!


** We reserve the right to blog what we want (same as other blogs). This blog is NOT affiliated with any others. **

Kiyomizu Spring Treasure Hunt

Kiyomizu Spring Hunt
This was an interesting hunt TJay and I stumbled across. I hadn't seen much about it on the hunt sites, but this was actually a lot of fun. The hunt begins at the Kiyomizu mall, and runs through several of the shops there and also ventures out onto the grid to a ton of other stores. It was a little confusing at first, mostly due to the language barrier since neither TJay or I am fluent in japanese, but once we got it figured out, we had a great time.

There are floating "information boxes" scattered around the mall - you will want to click on one of them when you arrive there to start the hunt. It will take you to a webpage that has a list of all the store SLurls, how many gifts are at each stop (i.e. Tokoyo.Girl has 11 hidden all over their sim!), and it tracks which gifts you have found already. Without that page, you WILL get lost, because some of the mall shops have a sign, but no gift since the signs direct people to their main stores not in the mall.

In total, there are 70 stores and 81 gifts, but according to the tracking page, some people have found up to 83 - not sure if we missed a few extras or if the tracking system counts it more than once if you get the same gift more than once.

In any event, the "ninja cats" you are hunting are cute, and the gifts cover a broad range from modern to traditional clothing, some gorgeous furniture, and some really interesting scripted items like a hover craft and an inventory arranger. The hunt runs until April 7th, so be sure to squeeze in some time and take a stroll through this great hunt! Also - I did my best to get all the store names correct, but with the language barriers, there may be errors, and they are all mine. If one of these stores is yours, and I got the name wrong, drop me a comment and I will get it fixed ASAP. =)

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Diamond Is Mine Hunt 2: 51-101

Diamond is Mine 2 Hunt
The second half of the Diamond Is Mine Hunt 2 went just as smoothly as the first half. We had no problem at all going from store to store - the official blog has up-to-date hints and SLurls for each location, and it was a pleasurable jaunt from store to store. We got to see some old friends along the way and explore a few new (to us) spots that I plan on shopping a bit more extensively now that we've finished the hunt. When unpacking, however, we again ran into a problem with a gift and were unable to get another copy from the store because of the use of 1-per person scripts in the hunt items. This was particularly frustrating because both TJay and I had gotten the gift, remembered the store/location, etc, but neither of us was able to find it in our inventories when we unpacked.

If this happens, you can always contact the store owner and explain the issue, most times they are happy to send you a copy of the gift item. In our case though, given the time constraints to get things unpacked/photographed quickly so it can go online, we don't have the luxury of being able to wait to catch the owners online or for a response to a notecard. So, our apologies to the stores we do not blog for that reason, but for the hunters out there, please know that the missing stores DO have items, and the gifts are pictured on the official blog for this hunt.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Diamond Is Mine Hunt 2: 1-50

Diamond is Mine 2 Hunt
This is the second edition of the Diamond is Mine Hunt, and it is chock-full of great gifts from some pretty amazing stores. There are gorgeous clothes for men and women, skins, shapes, and accessories that will look fantasic with just about any fashion statement you want to make. The hunt went fairly smoothly - this post covers the first half, and we had no problems finding any of the stores. We had a couple issues with the give scripts in the diamonds due to SL lag, but all in all, it was an enjoyable run and we definitely recommend doing the hunt. You don't have much time left, it ends on April 11th, but that should be more then enough time to get through all 101 stores at a comfortable pace. Some locations have more than 1 diamond and the blog provides SLurls to each location in case you get stuck somewhere. Diamonds are a girl's best friend, and this hunt definitely proves that! =)

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!
