Hello!

I am relatively new to the hobby. I wonder how/where can you usually get promos (except buying them on amazon/ebay)?

Depends on the game and the publisher, but a large number of promos are available on BoardGameGeek's own store: http://boardgamegeekstore.com/

Others are only handed out at conventions, or only given to kickstarter backers, or sold through the publisher's website. I'd say look around, and if there's something specific that you're looking for and can't find, check the forums on BGG for that particular promo.

As already stated, Promos are dependent on what and where they are doing the promotion. Some are 'sweetners' to get higher donations during a Kickstarter campaign, some or promos included in a magazine to encourage you to subscribe, some are released at a convention to encourage you to go to the con and visit thier booth, a few are web exclusives to drive you to thier own website.

So, short answer, 'depends'.

As mentioned, many end up in aftermarket or BGG marketplace.

A lot of the Dixit promo cards you looking for are pretty hard to come by.
