The coupon will eventually expire if you don't use it, but the microbadge you purchase with a coupon will never expire/disappear.

Hi. Congratulations on your free badge. As others mentioned, they badge you purchase with the coupon won't expire. I got my first one in the same way (my Detroit Red Wings badge) and it is still going strong.

Looks like you guys need a couple more badges to fill out your microbadge line.

Hi Chris,

Like everyone else has said, the microbadges you've purchased with your free coupons don't have to be repurchased after a period of time.

Just in case you didn't know, you can also buy more microbadges with GeekGold you acquire (8GG per microbadge).

You won't be getting coupons very often. Usually coupons are given out as Christmas gifts, contest prizes, or if a Geekdo Admin feels you need a reward.

I have not seen any coupons for Avatars or Geekbadges, but occasionally users and possibly even an admin will sponsor Avatars through promotions or contests. This is usually done by giving the avatar recipient 30gg to pay for the avatar. I don't know if it's still valid but on the RPGGeek side user "Wavemotion" was giving out free avatars to people who agreed to use the RPGGeek logo for their avatar.

There are a bunch of other microbadges that can earned through contests and other special events. (Geekball, Charitable Auctions, Holiday gift exchanges, etc. etc.) You earn those by participating in the event in question.

Check out Microbadges for more information.

For the last several years (since microbadges were created?), BGG has given out a coupon for one as a holiday give. This year they gave out two, perhaps because the price was dropped from 15 GG to 8 GG. Something special is planned for BGG's 10th anniversary, but only Aldie knows what--if he's decided yet.
