    I think A.

    The others are valuable, but I wouldn't say they were free.

    I think all of them are great. The K-Cups are a much larger freebie then most samples are but since they are completely free there is no guarantee you will ever receive them if they run out.

    The glasses are a really good deal if you don't have insurance that covers glasses or if you break frames often.

    Then the Ipad case is nice if you need one but to have to go through the hassle of sending in a rebate is not great. I would say those type of freebies are nice if you are truly in the market for the product but not great for just an impulse buy.

    I go with A . That actually is a free thing. Big Grin
    If we are spending even a penny cannot be called a Free Thing.

    Here is the reason for posting this discussion. I was really disappointed with the contest results posted on Jan 12th. My deal was not awarded even though it had 19 countable votes. The reason for that is, buxr will award only one freebie per day. In spite the reason makes very sense to me but the deal which was awarded on that day is not actually a freebie, hence thought of checking with other members and result can be seen from the above discussion

    Now buxr makes their own rules irrespective of reality and say's deals with $0 irrespective of shipping are considered as freebies since they wont make any money to buxr. How members are responsible for their deals to make money.

    I believe members in this community are not sales executives for buxr so that they will be awarded only when their deal gains some money.

    These kind of in consistency always discourage members to stay in this community.

      rajachanda5, I have bad news for you. Whether you like to be a sales man or not, the deals you post have to translate into sales before they become prizes. This is a reality you cannot avoid and if it is too hard for you to comprehend this fact then I suggest you to find another community that runs by different rules.

      Deal A and Deal B both ran in the same contest and Deal B got more votes within 24 hours and thus received the prize. Please do not blame me or Buxr for giving prize to the wrong deal. I am simply acting on what the community thinks is a better deal. I understand that second time around (in the comments to this thread) more members picked Deal A over Deal B, however this doesn't change anything since the decisions have already been made and the the prizes given away.

      Actually I dont need your suggestion, because I already decided not to submit any deals or not to click on any deals in this community. In-spite I am already participating in many other communities so no need to find any new...

      But want to tell you something based on your reply ,Not every deal translate into sales but still can get prize based on the popularity or based on the rules you set. You get money from many deals but you are not giving prizes to all of them. No one here in this community is submitting deals on commission basis nor compensation basis. And most important thing is that you cannot make rules on fly...I should have accepted the truth if whatever you said is written in your WIKI pages. Your WIKI page tells one freebie per day but not tells the defination of freebie in your terms (shipping is not included).

      Finally I would like to thanks for all the community friends for supporting my deals all these days..

      Bye..

      By the way Buxr has done right thing giving prize to glass deal. but it should not be considered as freebie deal..The K-cup is the only freebie on this DAY which was not awarded due to in Justice. I am not asking to change the award but want to know the fact

    Rajachanda, this is not the way to prove which deal was better , I thought you were asking which deal is perfect freebie not the the best Deal as freebie per buxr rules. We are not selecting best deal in discussion , only voting to that deal can prove the best deal.

    If you still think K - cup deal was better than free glasses then I have to say that it was really hard to get free k cups ,In fact after few try I didn't even try for that freebie.

    I really don't like when some pepole join in couple of months and challenge the buxr rules those are made eventually not in a day by buxr community only.

    By writing this comment I am perfectly ready to take your negative vote too as you gave to yan's comment too.

      Hi Best..I am not proving anything here which is the best deal or nor challenging buxr rules..I still accept fact that buxr will allow only one freebie per day.

      My direct concern is that the glass deal is not a freebie as per the other members or as per the reality so it should not considered as freebie. If it is still considered as freebie it should be written somewhere in the wiki pages. You may feel bad of me but this is the fact .

      I want to conclude you that I may be new to this community but not new to these kind of communities.

      The fact is that What ever we are getting as daily prize or monthly prize those are from buxr earning, and when any freebie won the prize , we are just sharing the earning of other deal as the freebies are values edition to any deal web site.we pay for shipping or not but buxr not earning any money through freebie.
      At the end of the day most of the time average 100 deals post by around 10 active user per day and 7-8 prize, isn't it the fair chance to win daily if you were reasonable active on that day, I think we are getting 80% chance to win daily, we should not have any complaint for rewards.

      I still accept the fact that you are mention. I was just trying know the fact but never expected the words like 'printing money to share money' from admin. No one in the US prints money and everyone knows it.

    This rule has not changed, it's been there for a long time, even longer than we have wiki. I am sure it is mentioned in one of the older discussion topics. I will update the wiki to add more details on what is considered a freebie contests-wise.
