Monthly contest results are in:
Our September contest is finished and the winner is… TheBest with a record-breaking 189 points! TheBest has earned her title and $100 in cold hard cash (via paypal of course)!
This is the second-second place finish in a row for Buxr’s senior resident Orangearrows with 156 points! At Buxr it pays to come in second… to the tune of $100 cash. In third place, we have emma123 with an impressive 130 points. It figures emma has 1,2 and 3 in her name — perhaps that is where she aims to finish. Anyway, we love 3rd place finishers too, and by love we mean $100 cash
Thank you to everyone who participated in our monthly and daily contests, we appreciate your support!
The Referral Contest results are…
Did you know we have a referral contest at Buxr? Mr. Cheap did, and he finished in first place! While you guys were sweating over hot deals, Mr. Cheap referred just 2 friends and won $150 in cash! Do NOT ignore the refer a friend contest!
emma123 was paying attention too and will receive $100 cash (now, Emma, you can buy some of those hot deals too ) Last but not least, Orangearrows (who is just 5 points from becoming a Buxr Master) will receive $50 cash to add to his winnings.
Update: a little correction, since emma123 and Orangearrows tied in 2nd place, they will each receive $75 cash. We apologize for the error.
Congrats to all the referral contest winners, let’s spice things up in October and have a real contest here folks!
New Contest Rules for October:
The Refer a Friend contest rules have been changed to encourage participation. We’ve lowered the requirements for friends to qualify as good referrals. Referred friends no longer need to submit a deal, instead they only need to vote or comment over 3 day period within the contest month. Finally, as much as we love you guys, giving away prizes almost for free is something we can’t keep on doing and so we are setting a minimum required to qualify for the prize. Starting next month only members who refer at least 5 friends will be eligible to participate in the contest.
Continuing Improvements at Buxr:
Did you know Yan doesn’t sleep? Well, his sleep loss is your gain. He has added two very cool features: Deal Alerts & Wish Lists. The names pretty much explain what it is, but don’t be deceived these features are very powerful. With Deal Alerts you can set customizable alerts so you never miss a deal again. With Wish Lists you can flag your favorite deals for future reference. You can then share your wish list with anyone! Kind of cool right? Want to know more? Well, Yan has written a blog post with more detail about these features, please check it out!
