This page is a collection of member contributed tips on how to be successful in the Buxr deal contests
Your Inbox! Subscribe to every popular store out there and the deals will come to you. Most of my posts (coupons) are straight from the inbox.
Your purchases! If you purchased a great deal, spread the word!
Here is a tip I use to find deals, by letting the deals find you. If you have a gmail account, every message you get is literally surrounded by ads. When you get a email offer or ad from a favorite store, look closely at the banner ad above the email and the ads to the right. You will often find a nugget there from a competing store or for a similar product. Click on the ad to check it out. If it's a good deal, post away!
As hardcore deal shoppers, many Buxr community members have seen a lot of deals come and go. There are some deals and category of deals that fail to ignite the imagination of the Buxr community. Perhaps it is some self-selecting mechanism within the community, or perhaps it is just a “group-think.” In any case, submissions as mentioned below tend not to attract much attention in the Buxr community. They may be fine deals, but you would not be able to tell by Buxr. If winning is your only goal, don't overdo it in these deals.
Everyone likes to be positive. Vote negative only when it is truly deserved.
If there is any funny business with a deal, vote it negative. Deals that are not fair, not universal, cost too much, benefit the poster or some other side partner, those all qualify as junk deals and should be voted negatively. Fortunately, the Buxr staff and community ferret out most of these before they hit the main page.
Is there a better price on the same product (including shipping)? Vote it down! But be sure to post or point to the better deal.
Is the product out of stock? DON'T vote it negative. It might have been a great deal that you were just too late on. Instead, flag it as dead.
Is the product a piece of junk? Vote it down, but tell us that you bought one why it is not worth the rest of the community buying one.
Do you want to vote a deal negatively because the poster voted down one of yours? Come on, we're not in third grade anymore.
Do you honestly feel that it is not a good deal? Then vote it down, and say why! You can bet that the rest of the Buxr community will chime in and share their thoughts too!
