Besides having over a thousand games on sale GOG is running extra daily activities where you can earn XP by doing certain actions. When you get a set amount you can get a free game with a total of 3 tiers with a game per tier on offer.

GOG is a wonderful company. They’ve done lots of things right in our beloved industry starting with promoting DRM free games all the way to letting you link your Steam account.
