Login for Free SoBucks!

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

free-sobucks-anncmnt

We always want to give back to our loyal players, so we have finally implemented this wonderful and useful feature: free SoBucks for every daily login!

With this feature, new players who are still familiarizing themselves with the game, will have at least some spending money while leveling up to get a job or waiting for their job application to get approved.

And to those who are saving to get that sweet, sweet boat — try to hit the jackpot and get that rare 100 SoBucks login prize! I bet every SoBucks help is welcome. ;)

So how do you get free login SoBucks? Simply login to your account and you’ll get some SoBucks once a day after logging in. How much SoBucks can you get? The SoBucks prize you get is random, and the 100 SoBucks prize is pretty rare, but who knows, right? :)

Login away, folks! Enjoy this while it’s here.

I would also like to thank all those who immediately emailed, private messaged, and contacted the staff and Chris. Your concerns for the community are very much appreciated, and it’s that level of concern that has kept SocioTown a thriving place for gamers of all ages all these years. Thank you! ♥

New Outfits for the End of Spring?

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

end-of-spring-teaser

Spring is ending, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have one last shindig for it. Let’s give it a big send-off by having new outfits! :D

Although the design is simple, we were hard at work on this one. If you have noticed a slight silence from us for the last week or so, it’s because of these. :lol: We hope you find them cool and cute!

These outfits will be available at Trendiiz and Gee Cue this weekend. Look forward to it!

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
