Borders relaunches online bookstoreWhat makes a "hot deal" hot?

Announcing daily and monthly contests

June 1st, 2008

If you happened to visit in the past month or so, you probably have noticed that we have added quite a bit of functionality to make bargain hunting more fun. Today we are happy to announce one more addition that will hopefully make your visits to even more exciting!

Daily Contest

If you have a hot deal to share, you can do so by using this link (you need to create a free Buxr account if you don’t already have one). Once your deal gets published, it will become eligible for a vote. If your deal gets the most votes during the day, you will win the daily contest.

We currently give away $10 daily, however as more people participate and more deals get published, we will be awarding more prizes.

Monthly Contest

In addition to our daily cash prize we are also giving away a monthly grand prize which the community member with the most points will be awarded at the end of the month. Here is how our monthly contest works.

Earn Points by Submitting Deals

Community members can earn contest points for submitting deals. If you submit the best deal, you will earn 5 points, if you submit the worst deal you will lose 5 points.

Earn Points by Voting on Deals

One more way to participate in our monthly contest is by voting on deals. At the end of the day we will pick the best and worst deal as voted on by the community. Here is how you can earn or lose points:

Community Picks the Monthly Prize

We offer 3 monthly prize options for your vote: Nintendo Wii, Apple iPhone, and $300 cash prize. The prize option that receives the most votes will be given away at the end of the month. You can see the prizes and vote for your choice at our monthly contest page (click on “pick the prize!” link at the top).
