So far Buxr has been open for everyone to share shopping deals including store reps provided they disclose who they are. The idea is that store reps are in the best position to know when the store they represent runs a promotion or has a hot product, and they can describe the deal accurately.
Based on what I see, it hasn't quite worked out that way. Big stores have outsourced marketing to affiliated third parties who automatically feed promotions to their partners and media. Smaller companies do take time to come to Buxr to share what they have however I don't see the dedication I expected in the way they do it. Very often it looks like someone there has a few minutes to spare and they come and post whatever is up for sale at that time giving little thought to the competitiveness of the price or the quality of the information presented.
Another issues is that almost never you will see a comment left by a store rep. They essentially choose not to engage for one reason or another (I will be curious to see if anyone of the store reps comes forward to comment to this discussion topic
I am concerned that this mindless deal posting damages the website and our members by adding noise that we all have to wade through. I need your help in deciding on whether the store reps should be allowed to continue posting deals going forward. Please take the poll and share your thoughts in the comments.
