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. **

The Fashionista Hunt

The Fashionista Hunt
We had planned to bring the Supernatural Hunt 3 next, but after spending a considerable amount of time wrestling with the pictures due to technical difficulties which made it impossible to get them edited, we moved ahead to The Fashionista Hunt.

This was a fairly interesting hunt for us to do. There were several not ready/skipped stores per the blog, but we were able to navigate through without too much difficulty. You are looking for a bright pink shopping bag, and for such a seemingly-easy to spot item, the designers had some pretty clever hiding spots for it. All the usual help aids (hints, slurls, in-world group) are there if you need them. There are only a few more days of this hunt, but you should be able to complete it easily over a couple of evenings.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Coming in May...World Goth Day Events!

WGD Fair
Hallo Hunters!

We haven't forgotten about you guys - just been having a few technical glitches with getting the next finished hunt posted. In the meantime, while we work at fixing the problem, we have a little sneak peek at an upcoming May event for you.

As you know, we have a taste for the darker side of SL here at SL Freebie Hunters. May 22nd is World Goth Day, a day for the goth scene to strut its stuff and celebrate its presence. This year, World Goth Day has come to SL and, because SL folks never do things by halves, it has been extended for the entire month of May!

First up to share with you is the coming World Goth Day Nightstalker Hunt, hosted by Axi Kurmin and Dare Monro, the folks who bring you the Gothmas by Gaslight hunt. This hunt will run for the whole month and is currently accepting applications from gothshops. This is key - if you want to apply, your store MUST be goth-themed. Applications are being accepted until April 15th.

Click here if you are interested in applying for the WGD Nightstalker Hunt. (Link contains information about the hunt, rules, and application form.)

Secondly, they will also be hosting the World Goth Day Fair, which will run from May 15 to 31st. Aside from the great shopping, the Fair will be earning money for the Sophie Lancaster Foundation, which was founded following the horrific murder of this young girl for being a goth. Each shop taking part will have at least one item available with 100% of the sales going to the charity. The shops do not have to be gothshops, but the items available at the fair do need to be goth-themed. Additionally, Club Gothika will be making a donation towards the charity.

Click here if you are interested in taking part in the World Goth Day Fair. (Link contains information about the Fair, the charity, how the funds will be handled, and application information.)

SL Freebie Hunters will be doing our part as well - we will be blogging the Nightstalker Hunt in May and Shadow has taken a booth at the Fair to represent her store. We will be blogging the Fair, with an emphasis on the charity sale items, as well. This is not a hunt, nor is it a freebie/cheapie like other events we have shared with you in the past. It is, however, a really good cause to take part in. Prejudice and intolerance are things we feel strongly about, and we hope that you guys will help make these events a true SL success by turning out for the hunt and turning out at the Fair.

Cheers,
Shadowed and Thanos

The Penitent Hunt

The Penitent Hunt
Hallo Hunters! We have sufficiently recovered from Twisted (or at least have stopped running screaming from anything teal!) and are happy to share The Penitent Hunt with you. This is a short hunt, under 50 stores, but the theme was too good to pass up and the gifts from the designers taking part were, for the most part, absolutely fantastic. Seriously - if you are a crucifix junkie, this is THE hunt for you!

It is a pay hunt (1L per gift), but for under 50L to do the whole hunt, you more than get your money's worth. One thing about the hunt that threw us at first is that there are no LMs to the next location in the gifts. The folders have the gift, an LM to the start of the hunt, and an LM for the store you are currently visiting. Not to fear, however - if you click on any of the hunt signs, it gives you a folder with a little bonus gift and a notecard that has all the stores, hints, and SLurls in one neat little package. Alternatively, there is a blog online and there is an in-world group you can join with all the latest information about skips, moved stores, etc.

You have a nice long time to get this hunt finished - it runs into the beginning of April. This is the maiden voyage for Covert Hunts, and I look forward to seeing what they have planned for future hunts.

Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Twisted X-tras!

Twisted 7
Hello, my name is Shadowed, and I am a Twisted Addict. Normally, we just show the main gifts, and leave you to find any extras/bonuses/special buys on your own. This year, however, I decided to share some of the bonus goodies we picked up along the way - and by NO MEANS are these all the extras out there! We do the hunt fast and furious the first time, just to get things for the blog, then I go back and play through the extra mazes, minihunts, etc. purely for my own fun. This stuff is from those side hunts.

Twisted is the hunt that just keeps giving - the more you look, the more you find!


Cheers, and Happy Hunting!

Cart Sale Spring 2012, part 4

Cart Sale @ The Wash
The Cart Sale at The Wash is winding down - only 4 more days before they fold up the carts for another 6 months. We've got a final look at some of what is being offered to share with you guys today. Seriously - this stuff is only 10L. There are about 125 designers taking part from all over SL and its really a fantastically cheap way to get to stock up on designers you love and to try out designers who are new to you. There is stuff for the men, stuff for your house, and more clothing/jewelry than you can shake a stick at! The sim does fill up occasionally, so if you have trouble porting over, just give it a minute and try again.

The official blog has Slurls to just about every individual cart too, to help save shopping time if you are in a rush.
