Buxr Update: Contests and Prizes

buxr prizes

This is a short update on what is going on at Buxr, the project I started with my partner last December. This month we officially launched deal sharing contests and so far they have been a huge success. In just several days since the announcement we had 66 new members who have shared 137 deals and received 12 daily prizes ($10 by Paypal).

There is more than a daily prize at stake. Every time our members share deals and make their votes on deals others submit they contribute towards the monthly prize, or to be correct a choice of three prizes that we put out for vote on the monthly contest page.

I have been learning a lot from these contests and already have some ideas on how they can be improved. The goal is to make them interesting and fun for both: deal submitters and members who come to comment and vote for deals. I discussed some thoughts in this blog post and I will put out more for discussion later as I learn more.

Weekly hot deals roundup – Last Edition

This will be the last issue of my hot deals roundup. Ever since we launched deal ranking and daily cash prizes at Buxr it became very easy to spot the best daily deals. We are still working out kinks and the official launch announcement is upcoming, but the prizes are real and if you want to join the team of several early adopters that we invited to test drive the functionality, read this FAQ page on how the contests work and how you can participate.

There were many more interesting deals this week and I just couldn’t post them all here. I encourage you to visit Buxr.com or subscribe to Buxr.com RSS feed for more great offers every day.
