Third Annual Blocktoberfest + Free Usenet Giveaway

Third Annual Blocktoberfest Usenet Sale

Blocktoberfest is NewsgroupDirect’s month long celebration of usenet. Our third annual Blocktoberfest usenet sale is live now, and it’s bigger and better than ever before. We are discounting our 500 GB blocks to just $20, a savings of $40 over the regular price. We’re also discounting our mega-sized 2 TB block to just $70 (regular price $200). Block accounts are shareable and never expire.

Tweet for Blocks Promotion

We are excited to introduce a new promotion that we’re calling “Tweet for Blocks”. If you use Twitter and tweet about NewsgroupDirect then we will give you a free usenet block. The more followers you have on Twitter, the more we will give you.

Here’s how it works. Tweet a link to and mention @newsgroupdirect. Here’s an example tweet that we just sent. Feel free to retweet it to enter.

Once you have sent a tweet send an email to [email protected] with your Twitter account and we’ll verify everything and award your free block. Tweet for Blocks will run until 11:59PM EDT on October 31.

Here’s the breakdown of how much free usenet you can get.

  • Under 100 followers – 1 GB free
  • 101 – 200 followers – 5 GB free
  • 201 – 500 followers – 25 GB free
  • Over 500 followers – 100 GB free

You will need an active NewsgroupDirect account to get a free block, but new customers are welcome to create a new block account and then send the tweet.

How To Purchase

Sale prices are available to everyone. New customers can simply visit our Pricing page. Existing block customers can login to our website and click Add Block.

The Fine Print

The sale runs until 12 AM EST on November 5. No sale prices will be honored after the sale expires. The sale prices are available to both new and existing customers. You are free to purchase multiple blocks. Coupons do not apply to sale prices. All blocks receive a 10% allowance for headers, so a 2 TB purchase will actually give you 2.2 TB, or 2,200 GB. 

Tweet for Blocks runs through October 31, 2013 and ends at 11:59 PM EDT. Sorry, but @ mentions directed solely to us don’t qualify. Only 1 free block per NewsgroupDirect account. You must have an active NewsgroupDirect account to get the free block. Subscription accounts are eligible too. Old Free 1 GB usenet accounts do not qualify. Also, tweets from Protected Twitter accounts don’t qualify as we can’t verify them.

  1. […] Blocktoberfest continues. Today we’re adding a new option for you. Starting today you can get a 25 GB block for just $2. It’s a low-cost way to get into usenet. Plus, it works great with our Tweet for Block promotion. If you aren’t a NewsgroupDirect customer then you can buy a 2 Buck Block and send your tweet. It’s a easy way to stock up on blocks without breaking your bank account. The 2 Buck Block will be available through November 4, just like the others promos we have going. […]
