Second Life Steals, Deals, and Freebies: the Halloween 2022 Shop and Hop Event Runs Oct. 6th to Nov. 1st

The Hallowe’en 2020 Shop and Hop event is back, with 16 sims groaning with free gifts for you! Every booth has at least one free gift, and a few of them offer more than one! This popular shopping event runs from Oct. 6th to Nov. 1st, 2022. Here’s a handy alphabetical list of all the vendors participating.

As before, I am NOT going to cover the Shop and Hop event in detail here on the blog. Instead, I have compiled a notecard of my picks for the best and most fabulous freebies, free store credit offers, and gift cards, and posted it to the Second Life group I maintain, called the RyanSchultz.com Steals, Deals & Freebies group (the group costs L$50 to join; more information here). My notecard includes the exact SLURL for each freebie, for you to pop in, pick up your gift, and move on to the next score, for the most efficient freebie shopping experience! (Note that SL’s list of stores in the paragraph above has several SLURLs which stick you behind store walls!)

As always, there are many offers of free store credit and gift cards; here are my picks:

  • Addams – L$300 (group join fee L$5)
  • Blackstone – L$300
  • GGVG – L$500
  • Luna Chelsea – L$500
  • MALified – L$400
  • Mirage (home decor) – L$500
  • Nuve – L$300 (expires Oct. 31st, 2022)
  • Poison Rouge – L$350
  • Paper Sparrow – L$500 (join group for free; credit expires on Dec. 1st, 2022)
  • Vagrant – L$300 (expires Nov. 5th, 2022)
  • Zerkalo (home decor) – L$300 (expires Nov. 5th. 2022)

PRO TIP: Grab that L$500 gift card for Luna Chelsea and head over to the footwear section in their main store (exact SLURL), where you can pick up five L$99 fatpacks (over 70 colours!) of a wide variety of women’s shoes and boots, like these Destiny classic leather pumps (which also come in patent leather and suede versions):

Stock up on shoes using the L$500 gift card at Luna Chelsea, and you may never need to buy shoes for your avatar again! (Haha, just kidding, of course you will…)

Here’s a completely free vampire outfit I was able to pull together, using a combination of free gifts and free store credit, and taking advantage of discounted prices at the Hallowe’en Shop and Hop:

  • the Blood Vamp outfit is the gift from the Be Bold booth, and it includes the boots (there’s also a L$250 gift card if you join the Be Bold store group for L$50);
  • the red-lined black high-collared Bento animated cape I purchased on sale using the free credits from the MALified booth; and
  • the perfect finishing touch of the Sweet Death Crown, which I bought on sale using the free credits from the Poison Rouge booth.

Happy freebie shopping! Obviously, most of the gifts this round are Halloween-themed, with ghosts, bats, witches, and pumpkins galore. Boo!
