Monthly giveaways – I need your help!

Hi, peeps!

I need your help here, guys and gals. I’m planning a new links section for the sidebar over here at SL4Nowt: the Monthly Giveaways Store List. This will be a handy links list of tons of stores that give away a monthly freebie, be it to anyone or to their group members. Primarily, I would prefer to keep this to stores that rez the gift out in the store (so not sent via group or subscribo notices) and preferably to anyone passing by; no group join required (although I would like to hear about the ones that do require group membership, too).

I have a few so far, but I need your help to gather more! Please drop a comment with any stores you know of that do this. SLurls are gratefully welcomed! Give me an idea of what kind of gift the stores usually offer, whether it’s regular (every single month, without fail), whether it’s free or L$1, and whether you need to join a group and wear the group’s tag (or be a member of a subscribo for a certain length of time) before clicking to get the item.

I love hopping around my current list of regular gift stores at the start of each month, so let’s get a big list going so we can all have that feeling!

  5. hmmmm….Most of the ones I know about I learned from you, so let me see if I can think of some that i happened on myself. There’s Flavor http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ocean%20Ridge/127/96/459 You do have to join the group but it is free. They have a monthly gift that you must go to the store to pick up. Midnight madness and lucky boards in the store too. They also have good newbie gifts, under 30 days to qualify i think – one for guys and one for women. Their main forte is hair but they also have some nice casual clothes, jewelry, and accessories.

  7. Happy to share this with you, Mar, and then I’ll get back to cleaning my inventory. ;)
    My Sterling Artistry shop has a new freebie offering each month. (It doesn’t necessarily get changed by the 1st, but the new one is usually out sometime in the first week of the new month.) Exclusive eyes and something more, which varies from month to month.
