Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

What could be better than getting free stuff?

You know what I love?

FREE SHIT!

I won an HD tv

dimage.jpg

at the end of last year, and today I got my second brand new phone

Nokia-X6-16GB-black-official.jpg

for free from my mobile phone service provider.

What kind of things have the SE++ community been given, found, or won over the years?

    I wish mobile providers actually carried nokia phones around here

    the awesome ones anyway

    I'm always reading about some badass nokia and then it's all "but you have to buy it direct from them and it's like $500"

    robbery

    Chris SIMS metal came and took my car away and now instead of a useless lump of metal in the driveway I have a $50 gift card. Thanks!

    If you sign up for Dollar Shave Club here I get a free month of tiny metal blades delivered right to my house. Seems legit.

    The company that published Werner Herzog's book gave me a free copy of it. I also got most of the DLCs for RE5 from Capcom because I'm technically a member of the press.

    That was nice.

    Considering tuition up here was about 5,500 per year, that set me up quite nicely

    I won a free not-for resale Forza 2 and that new(ish?) Halo game together at work on Sunday. Gave it to a friend though 'cause I don't own a 360. There were other prizes to choose from but honestly even a game I can't play is better than a snuggie or a retail-store themed Jenga.

    i got to meet the cure for free
    i saw metric for free
    i got the first season of flight of the conchords for free
    saw dark knight in imax a few days before it came out for free
    i won a nickelodeon backpack for free
    i saw the phantom menace a few weeks before it came out for free


    i think that's it though
    the first three of those are all from the same radio station

    edit: oh and remember way back when, when coke used to have bottlecaps that gave instant prizes, like a free coke?
    one time i won one, got another coke, opened it, and won another free coke

    Aww man I'm sorry, that used to be $150 cash money dollars. Ah well, $50 is better than nothing right?

    Remember those 'www.(product)forfree.com' websites that were really popular a while back when the 360, ps3, and wii had just come out?

    Well, I used one of 'em and got a free psp out of it.

    Back in about 99/00 there was this website that was all about playing minigame pixel hunts to win cash or prizes.

    Somehow i ended up winning 2 Tyler Durden costumes from Fight Club, i was disappointed when they arrived and were clean.
