Second Life has several promotion packs available on Amazon.com right now for a free vehicle and free Lindens ($1000L)!! This promotion is available to current and new Second Life residents from the U.S. I just signed into my Amazon.com account, bought the Starter Vehicle Pack for $0, and got my free money!! If you buy the more expensive packs, you’ll have to spend more money (they’re not free), but you get more Lindens back.
Head on over to the Official Second Life forum to get all the details.
Weekend Deal: Free “Second Life” Starter Pack ($9.95 Value) – LIMIT ONE PER CUSTOMER
From now until January 6, 2013, get a Vehicle Starter Pack
for “Second Life” absolutely free. Normally $9.95, this pack includes 1,000 Linden Dollars (virtual currency) and a designer hoverboard. Use your virtual currency to customize your avatar with high-quality clothing or characters, weapons or other enhancements. Show off your moves with a unique hoverboard that lets you skim across land, water or sky. LIMIT ONE PER CUSTOMER. Learn more.
I’m still waiting for my free Vehicle to arrive, but I the Lindens were deposited to my Second Life account right away.
After you add the Starter Vehicle Pack to your cart, you will be asked to login to your Second Life account to “link” it to Amazon. You can go back into your Amazon account later, and delete the Linked Account if you don’t want it stored on your Amazon account.
Some restrictions: You must have a Credit Card on file at Amazon to check out. This promotion is available to U.S. residents only, at this time.
Update! Hot tip from Jolene of Next Pointless Trend:
Any NON-US residents looking to get the deal. If you already have your CC info on your Amazon account, just change your billing address to a US one and you’ll have no problem. This works because I just did it and I had to do it before to purchase something else. So ask one of your American friends if you can use their address or just use LL’s office address lol.
Update again! Within hours of going live, the promo is gone.
We don’t know when or if this item will be available again.
