from WIRED magazine

Dear Buxr members,

Please allow me to introduce myself. I'm a writer for WIRED magazine. I'm putting together a story about online communities where people gather to trade deals. I'm hoping to interview Buxr users and discuss the art of finding and sharing deals, and your experiences as members of this particular online community.

I'm also looking for some passionate and capable deal-hunters who might let me visit them in person and shadow them as they pursue deals, both online and in real life.

You can reach me any time through this account, or by email at Thanks. I'm really looking forward to learning more about Buxr.

Best regards,

Mattathias Schwartz

    Buxr or I in no way endorse this writer, you are on your own if you chose to contact him. The post just looked credible (and interesting) enough to approve it.

    Just an FYI, this appears to be Mattathias' latest Wired article:

    Also, this seems to be his public profile:

    Thanks, I appreciate you approving the initial post. I've also written stuff for several magazines--Google "Mattathias Schwartz" and these stories will come up.

    Interested Buxr members are welcome to email me at or call 267-288-7444. If folks have questions about credibility, I'm more than welcome to show you a letter from WIRED explaining what this piece is about, and that I've been assigned to write it.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Not sure if any of you volunteered to get interviewed but it sounds like Buxr did get a mention in this month's issue of Wired. The article is on page 188 and is titled "The Coupon Rebellion". Here is a nice infographics that comes along. According to Wired Buxr is the place to go to at 2PM Smile (click on the image to see a larger version of the scan)
