Buy, Snap and Earn! (Update)

Friday, February 28th, 2014

buy-snap-earn-promo-image

Arica1 with her new Fall Dress. She excitedly shared this last 2012, when the Fall outfits were just released -- Flashback Friday, anyone? ;)

Do you want to be rewarded every time you shop? With Buy, Snap and Earn, you can get SoBucks for certain purchases per week!

Buy, Snap, Earn is a weekly shoppers promo that will reward you for purchasing certain items and sharing a screenshot of it in SocioTown’s Facebook. Current rewards are 20 SoBucks. Anyone can join and there’s no limit to contestants or reward earners, but you can receive a reward only once. As long as you share your photo within that Weekly Shopping Guide’s week, you can receive your 20 SoBucks. :)

If you’re a frequent shopper and a loyal Weekly Shopping Guide follower, this promo is perfect for you! Every week, promo rules will be posted right after the Weekly Shopping Guide charts are up. If you bought or own the items in the promo rules, simply snap a screenshot of your items and share it in Facebook (you can post it in SocioTown’s FB page or upload it in your Wall and tag SocioTown, 3D Virtual Game World ).

Here is this week’s promo rules: If you bought a Playdo furniture and a clothing item in the Weekly Shopping Guide chart with a color that matches the Playdo furniture, snap a screenshot and share it here! (Example: a screenshot of you sitting on your Pink Playdo Chair while wearing a Pink Floral Skirt). Remember, you must own said items — don’t pose beside item models inside the stores. This promo will end after this week’s Weekly Shopping Guide expires. A new promo will be posted next week for the next shopping guide.

Want to learn how to snap a screenshot? Visit this handy tutorial online (SocioTown and OTBS are not affiliated with the site, but it is a helpful guide; make sure to read the instructions very carefully to avoid computer troubles).

Buy, Snap and Earn won’t last forever. So if you’re an avid shopper, make use of it while it’s still here! Shop and earn the rewards! :D

Update: I have answered some questions and posted a (very long) clarification below!

Update 2: I have revised the blog post above. Hopefully, it’s more clearer than the last! You can still share your questions and I will try to answer it as clear as I can. :)

bring-me-a-picture

Let’s be a bit dramatic this week! :lol:

For this round, bring me a picture of you saying “*sigh*” while sitting down and facing River Creek.

Your back should be facing the camera while you’re facing the river. Play around with the camera angles using the Eye icon on top and the Theater Mode (found by clicking your avatar, picking Me, then Theater Mode and choosing On). For a quick screenshot tutorial, visit this link (SocioTown and OTBS are not affiliated with the site; it’s just a handy tutorial that everyone can use).

Send your image/screenshot to my email address at dawn@sociotown(dot)com with the subject BMAP: SIGH and your complete SocioTown name. This round ends next Sunday or until somebody wins.

The first one to send their entry that followed the instructions above wins 50 SoBucks! :)

Here are the long awaited winners of this year’s Valentine’s Day Contests! Congratulations, lovebirds. ;)

pink-and-red-fashion-contest-banner

Couples Category: Malcomn and Suzan45

malcomn-and-suzan

Malcomn’s outfit consist of the Red Mohawk, Lovestruck Shirt and Santa Trousers; Suzan45, on the other hand, wore (almost) all red: High-Waisted Red Pants and an equally red shirt, with White Heels to contrast it all. Their lovely hug is a cherry on top of this love-filled image!

***

Friends Category: Samiria, Hanna12, Branwen

branwen-samiria-hanna12

You don’t have to be a couple to enjoy Valentine’s Day, and these fashionable friends have proved it! They had tons of fun through picking and matching their outfits and by spending time together at the park.

“Here we are, friends enjoying the park together. We chose our outfits to reflect the spirit of friendship for Valentine’s Day. Hanna and Branwen have on lovely pink shirts with heart symbols and Samiria is wearing a red cropped sweater. Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone!”

***

Solo Category: Branwen

branwen

Even though Branwen is in the Friends Category, she only wins the Solo Category of this contest. With her feminine and daring outfits, she definitely deserves it! :D

“Valentine’s Day is for everyone. It can be romantic love between couples, but also love for family, friends and everyone you meet! It is a day to spread love and happiness. Here I am getting ready for a day in town. I chose to wear pink because it is a soft gentle color and love should always be gentle. I added the boots with a splash of blue and a hat with a flower to remind us that spring is right around the corner! What’s this I see ? A gift for me? Who could it be from? What could be inside? A Valentine’s surprise!!”

Even though that outfit made her win the Solo Category, Branwen also sent another outfit. Great enthusiasm, don’t you think? It’s a pity not to see it, so here it is!

branwen_2

“Everyone will stop and take notice when you wear this sporty red outfit! I took my inspiration from the red and white traffic signs around town. This outfit is cool, comfortable and just right for a workout or a run. If you want to get noticed on Valentine’s Day, this outfit will be sure to stop them in their tracks!”

And the contest that has a special prize has finally declared a winner. Congratulations, Shanana!

“This is my romantic dinner room. Me and my date could have a wonderful, fancy dinner here. Now you might ask yourself why are there 4 tables and 8 chairs in this room.

This room has candle lights, plants, and a beautiful painting that everyone can enjoy.”
