A free month is a term used to describe 30 days of World of Warcraft game time that can be acquired through a few methods, but none of which are usually completely free.
- If you purchase the first release (classic/vanilla) World of Warcraft box, you will get 1 free month of game time.
- A recruiter will get 1 free month of game time when their recruit pays for their first month of game time.
- Keep in mind that the "Free Month" will only be 30 days if the month in question has 30 days. If you activate a purchase of WoW in the month of February, for instance, you will only get 28 days of play time.
- The Recruit-A-Friend program is sometimes suspended pending changes, so the free month based on a recruit's purchase of game time may not be available.
