December 3rd, 2007
We are proud to announce that Buxr.com is officially live as of today, December 3, 2007.
What is Buxr.com? The best way to describe our project is with these two simple concepts:
1. Shop and Save
We are obsessed with bargain hunting. Our free market economy offers a great opportunity to choose the best product at the lowest price from multiple competing merchants. At Buxr.com we help you save time and money by posting hand picked hot deals daily. Each deal is tagged and categorized so it is easy to find similar deals or deals offered by the same merchant.
2. Share and Earn
Shopping and saving money is just one part of Buxr.com. Do you have a blog or a website? Share the deals you like with your friends and get rewarded when they make use of the offers. The Buxr Widget is what makes it all possible. The widget is a customizable ad featuring latest hot deals from Buxr.com. If you have a niche website, you can use tags to select only specific category of products. The widget size and appearance is also highly customizable.
Refer friends and win prizes
Today is a very special day for us. It concludes a year long effort on the part of our small team. We want you to share our excitement and we decided to offer some prizes to those of you who can help us spread the word about Buxr.com. Since we are not rich, (these prizes came out of our hard earned cash) we can’t just offer prizes to anyone. Instead we are launching a contest with very simple rules.
- Sign up for an account at Buxr.com and publish our widget on your website
- Refer friends (bloggers and webmasters) and have them publish the widget as well
- 10 people with most referrals running the Buxr Widget by January 4, 2008 get prizes
A shiny new 8GB iPod Touch ($299 value) will go to the person with most referrals. The first runner up will get a new 4GB iPod Nano ($149 value). A 4 GB USB flash drive ($30 value) will be awarded to each of the rest 8 runners up.
The contest cut-off date is Friday, January 4, 2008 and the winners will be announced the following Monday, January 7, 2008. More details about the contest can be found here.
To spice things up a little bit we will be periodically posting updates with the current referral standings. So come back in a few days to check how close you are to winning the grand prize. But here is the best part, you win even if you lose! The people you refer will earn you 10% of their commission for the next 12 months (read about our affiliate referral program here). Win/win is exactly how we like to do things at Buxr.com!
