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. **

ON9 1st Anniversary Hunt

ON9 Anniversary 

ON9 is a monthly shopping event hosted by Le PonPon. The event has a fun premise: every month is a new theme and the participating designers showcase gorgeous items with a twist - one color item is discounted, while the others remain normal pricing. This month is their 1 year anniversary and so they are holding a special event in addition to the normal shopping event.

When you visit the ON9 event, there are little pink and blue cupcakes in most of the merchant stalls. Each cupcake (no group required) will give you an LM and a hint to find another cupcake at the merchant store. Those store cupcakes contain free anniversary presents. It about killed me doing this hunt because while the cupcakes are not difficult to find, the temptation to shop and spend every linden I have was overwhelming. There are some really great stores involved and if you enjoy the ON9 montly event, you don't want to miss out on this hunt.

Congratulations to ON9 for reaching their first anniversary and I hope to see this event continuing for a long, long time to come. =)

Breakfast at Tiffany's Hunt

Fi's Hunts - BATH 

Hello SL Freebie Hunters! We have 2 things on the agenda today:

1. Fi's Hunts have kicked off their "Breakfast at Tiffany's Hunt", themed after the 1961 Audrey Hepburn movie, and we have a peek at some of the hunt prizes you can find. The hunt is running a bit differently this time - Fi herself is having online access issues and was unable to set up their official blog for the hunt, so her team of coordinators has set up a page for the hunt hints, rather than referring hunters to the usual official blog page. Other than that, you can find hint boards at each participating store which will give you the URL for the alternate hint page. This should be a fun hunt - Breakfast at Tiffany's is such an iconic film, the designers had a ball coming up with their own takes on its various themes. All the hunt info you need is listed below.

2. Since it began, this blog has used Picasa Web for our photo storage. As of May 1st, Google Photos is replacing Picasa and we are not sure how that will effect the blog - they are saying it will not break photo links for things already published, but we'll see. I do know for sure that the new Google Photo links (as they stand now) do not work for people who do not have a Google account (they see a broken image or are asked to log into Google to see the pictures). Hopefully this will be fixed before May 1st. In the event you peek back at the blog after that date and it looks like a bomb went off - never fear! We are actively looking now for a Picasa alternative so that the blog can continue uninterrupted. =)

Good luck and happy hunting!
