Lfs giving out freebies

I've heard stories of people getting free things moss or gravel even driftwood.

Have you ever received anything free from a fish store? And if so what was it?

Lfs giving out freebies

Plants mainly. Often just little extras. Like I might get some free snails I want (not pond snails) when getting other stuff.

Local advice. I think that gets forgotten sometimes but a good lfs can save you money (which er, I promptly spend on other fish stuff).

I have only been given a assassin snail so far. People have told me they've been given huge pieces of moss Sadly my lfs sells the moss they have.

Sometimes when I get too many fry of certain species, mostly cichlids, a couple different LFSs will take them in exchange for store credit. If I buy a high enough dollar amount, sometimes they'll add a bit extra, but never got any freebies.

never seen local shops doing it , I do a lot of online buys and get all types of freebies
from corals to fish and everything in between , today I got a free yellow tang he is healthy and huge, the type of freebie you get depends on what you spend

Got four empty shells for a sw hermit crab during a RODI run to an LFS. I'm with 54seaweed, though, more freebies from online and they def scale with purchase. I've gotten snails, bonus shrimp, food, plants, and % off high priced hot items, never mind shipping
