Hmm... If I could pick a product from those 50 I'd be interested, but random? Too much there I have no need for.
I got Rhodey for M4-a handsome rascal indeed. Thanx!
While the grab bag is a nice idea, it needs some serious work. I just got a character for V4. I can't stand V4 (I don't use the 4th generation Daz figures at all only the second and third generations), so this is useless to me, so I probably won't even download the item.
Thank you to the vendors that are participating, though. Hopefully other people have more "luck" than I do when it comes to this event.
No thanks. These aren't fun
It would be great if you could choose. I see
only a few items that I would be interested in having. Many here that I would never use.
Nice of the vendor to do this. Thank you to all the vendors.
Thank you so much for the $15 GC, I had something in my wishlist for that amount!
I have to agree with tyd2. OTOH - this is great for those who are relatively new around here.
Jinkie and Ainu. Neither is of any use to me. Meh. Lots of stuff I would use, and I got the two probably will never even download.
Thanks to the vendors taking part. Just rotten luck I guess on my part.
Let me choose please!!
Renderosity has had some pretty good promotions over the years. This is definitely not one of them. Lack of control as to what you receive is the biggest factor. The odds of getting an item that's useful to you are pretty slim.
What's with all those items with requirements this time?
I really love the grab bag concept, but I hate that I just got a texture expansion to a $15 outfit that I don't even remotely want... :(
I agree with others, this is nice of the vendors but a random item that I might not ever use is not encouraging for me to shop. It would have been nice if these products were setup to check at $0.00 if you purchase another item at $5.00 or more. Each $5.00 would grant another one of these becoming free in your cart.
Besides looking at the items above.. all the ones I like I already own. There is only one other item in there that I'd love to have.. but look at the odds of me getting it. I'll wait to see if March has anything else coming. The 7 days was nice, but my credit card has been sleeping since then.
Don't feel this is a good idea either - just got an item I'd never buy or even use.
Would be better if you could choose one from e.g. 5 or 10 random items, then there would be a reasonable chance that you got something you could use.
Thank you for this, there are some things on the list that I would really, really want, but anything is always appreciated.
Would it make me buy something just to get a chance at something for free? No. Does it keep me coming back to Renderosity? Yes
I got a product I don't have the base for either. Definitely won't be making another purchase. Don't like the Jaythen hair so getting the Colors for it is not even an incentive for me to buy the main product. What a waste.
Nice idea but what a gamble. I got the M4 assasin textures and I don't use M4 nor own the product.
All grab bags are a gamble and it didn't cost me anything.
The only thing on that list of 50 items that I'd even want is Livin in a Mushroom.
Thought it was supposed to be a bit of fun, not something to cry about.
Great Variety of lot's of cool stuff from generous vendors. The surprise of the grab bag is half the fun and I get to try a product or seller I haven't tried. Thanks for your work on the promos.
The idea is a good one but as soon as I saw all the textures for things I don't own I knew I'd have to pass.
Sale hasn't been very lucky for me, as I've placed two orders, solely because it was grab-bag time, and forgotten to include grab bags in both. *sighs* I shouldn't place orders when I'm tired, apparently.
I'd just like to say, thank you to ile-avalon for fixing up my confusion today.
My bad for jumping the gun and i apologise.
The textures and dresses are simply divine.
Disappointing. So far got three things I'll never use. If I could pick I would purchase many more things knowing that I'll get something I want....
I got Ethereal Ponds Backdrops and Belle West clothing set, none of which I wanted but hey at least you get something for nothing.
Never mind wanting it or not. I cant even use it. Its for a program i dont even own. At least keep it DAZ Poser type content.
Awesome, I got a $15 Gift Card! Thank you so much!
The idea behind Renderosity Grab Bags is to gather a wide range of products from interested participating vendors and offer them as free products as a way to reward those who’ve made a purchase. Although we realize that certain products may not be on the top of your wish list, we try to provide a selection of products that will appeal to the Renderosity Community as a whole. This is not intended to be a ‘Buy 1 Get 1 Free’ offer and shouldn’t be viewed as such. Instead, please treat this as a fun and interactive way of receiving a free product you can now add to your digital content library. Just like in the retail world "grab bag" promotions, you don't have any idea of what might be in that brown paper bag:)
We were careful to list all fifty (50) products in our Grab Bag article so that our buyers would know the pool of products from which they could potentially randomly receive
Great idea makes me want to impulse buy! OK my credit card hate you!
Seriously a great idea that should be implemented regularly!
Thanks for the explanation, StaceyG!
Just want to make sure my first reply isn't taken the wrong way: I really LOVE the concept of getting a random item, most of the time items I would have never bought but then I actually grow to like.
My only peeve with this is that with the good old brown paper bag you always got a standalone item. It might not have been what you were hoping for, but at least it was usable on its own.
But here we get some items that are completely useless without their pre-requisite item. Those items will never be used (because they CANNOT be used), so they won't help promoting the vendor, either.
And now I'll go and play with some of those items I would have never bought but REALLY love by now... ;)
ROTFL! Me thinks there may be a trickster in the clan?
It says I was charged a penny for the gift and of course I wasn't!
Pot O' Gold Grab Bag 1 $0.01
Good Laugh! Great Fun! I have always loved this idea!
Thank you, NATHRAI You said it a lot better than I did. ;-)
Thanks for the gift! Siobhan for V4
i really am not happy in the grab bag idea.. maybe if you got a list of 3-4 different items from this list to pick from i would be ok with it but to get things you would never use nor could use with out buying the base product is not a good idea to me... 4 times i have tried and each time i got things i wont use
This is fun! I got items that I am HAPPY with, but I do agree with some members about being able to CHOOSE a free product from the listed GRAB BAG items when buying something over $5, BUT, this way it's unpredictable. Like gambling, you win some, you lose some, or should I SAY you LOVE some, you FORGET some(items). I'm happy and grateful for ANYTHiNG that's FREE(;-D). Cool PROMO! I love it! Thank you!
Some of my fave things in life are ones I would have never looked at myself.
Almost everything I got free was a pleasant surprise, and I lucked into $35 in gift certs that I used like mad money (and bought one of those things I got a free texture for).
This was FUN, and I probably bought too much but hey, We only live twice- Once for the world and once for our runtime! -Rebecca De Carlo
I'm a bit of a gambler so love this grab bag promotion - no matter what I get it is a lovely and welcome surprise. Thankyou to all the vendors who are participating - no matter what I get it is much appreciated - and will use it somewhere and somehow!
In the Mood after all I can always use more light!
Thank you so much Renderosity :) Felt very lucky indeed!!
As a fan and repeat customer of Bice and outoftouch, VERY HAPPY with IMPACTS: Hide & Seek HeadGear
spend around a 150 dollars on this pot o gold and got plenty of stuff extra. i am very satisfield and feel spoiled lol.excellent idea.
Thank you! I got the rock arches by Designfera and I am very happy I did participate. First I thought, with my budget as tight as it is nowadays, I don't because there is very little I would like to get and the rock arches was one of them! :)
The fun of a grabbag is just because it's a grabbag. When you can choose an item, it's not a grabbag anymore I think.
Keep on doing the fun things, Renderosity!
I went for a grab bag... and while I got Susie's Rags... it's not something I'd normally choose for myself, but I do like it. Just means I'll have to play around to find a use for it. :)
I like the concept but two of the item I received will do me no good either. Pity we can't just swap the free stuff for things we can actually use. I do not own Miki figure, does me no good to get clothing for her, or textures for a hair I have no intention of owning.
Well, I for one am very, VERY happy with the goodies I got... What with the beautiful Tina and the Templar Knight and the gift cert... How can one go wrong with that! Thank you, Rosity!
I enjoy the grab bag, and have been pretty lucky! But for more fun, how about setting up some way that winners can swap items with each other?

Thank you again... am very happy with the 2 grab bags I have gotten...very fun indeed :-)
