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 Gacha Guardians, Spring'17

If you are one of the many gacha addicts in SL, you definitely do not want to miss The Gacha Guardians event going on right now! There are over 40 stores taking part in this round, and they have created some amazing things for you to try your luck winning. Additionally, for every 15 pulls you make on a machine, you win not only the 15 gacha items, but also one of two special gifts from the designers as a thank you! If that isn't enough of a reason to try your luck, how about this: Many of the designers have also put out a group gift you can pick up free while wearing your group tags. So there are freebies, bonuses and tons of fabulous gachas to check out!

I will admit to being a little of a gacha addict, so I did play a few of the machines and found some really nice things. For this post, I am showing the free group gifts you can get from almost all of the designers. Many of the gifts are bonus items that work with things you can win in the gachas themselves, such as Culco's group gift of a parking space set up which is perfect for the vehicles they have in their gacha this round or BoWillow's pillow fight pose which was made for the pillows you can win in their gacha.

The event runs through the end of the month, so you still have a week or so to head over and take your chances.

MoH9 - the Hipsta Hunt

MOH9 Poster

The lovely folks of the Men Only Hunts have done it again - the 9th MoH is underway all this month in Second Life. The Hipsta Hunt contains about 50 stores focused exclusively on the gentlemen. Not only will you find all kinds of good looking gifts as you work through the hunt path, but it is a golden opportunity to get to know stores you might not be familiar with. This round, you are hunting for a hidden mustache - and let me tell you, that little sucker is 'stached in some sneaky places!

If you have never done a MoH before, its really easy - drop by the start location (slurl below) and pick up the Hipsta Hunt hud for free. Wear the hud while you hunt - it has the Slurls to each of the stores, information on which stores might have issues such as missing prizes, and hints for all the store locations. It is a fairly large hud, but it can easily be minimized with the little X in the upper right corner. (I will admit it took me a hot minute to figure that out, I had assumed the X would detach the hud.) Once you find the mustache at each location, you can buy them for free and will get either a folder or object added to your inventory containing your gift.

In addition to the prizes pictured below, there were 4 stores offering Catwa specific items, which I did not include. Yes, yes, bad blogger - I don't have a Catwa head for my male av yet and those particular items did not include a photo of the gift. But I was able to find each mustache on the hunt path (with the exception of the 2 skipped stored per the hud), so they are out there.

You have to the end of the month to find them all, guys - Ready, Set, Hunt!
