Buckscoop Community Bounty starts Mon 30th - $60 IN PRIZES each MONDAY

27 June 2008

Quite fitting that we are going to be launching this promo at the end of the month, as we are about to send you your Buckscoop cashback payments!

Buckscoop is all about the community. You guys posting deals, voting on deals and shopping with your cashback merchants to get those rates moving.

****************************
Sweet and Simple

Each Monday for the next 4 Mondays we will be awarding the winners of our Buckscoop Community Bounty. We have 3 categories:
1. Highest temp deal (quite self explanatory but the deal posted in the previous week with the highest temperature as voted by fellow Buckscoopers lands a prize)
2. Most intertesting 'Off tangent' topic. (completely subjective?? .... yep!)
3. Best freebie (this may be the freebie with the highest temp or it may simlpy be something of interest .. a bit of a subjective category again I suppose)
And 4. a few random prizes if the mood takes us.

Unfortunately we do have a few rules:
1. You are not allowed to vote on your own deal
2. You are only allowed to post a maximum of 3 deals a day. You can post as many freebies and off tangent comments as you like
3. Admin decision is final.
4. The weekly comps run from 10am EST Monday to 10am EST the following Monday.
5. All weekly winners will be announced Monday evening
6. Freebies will not be included in the 'hottest deal temp' comp. Dupe posts will be removed
7. Only one prize per member per week - no prize pool clean out I am afraid
8. *****
USERS MUST ADD THE TAG "BOUNTY" TO THEIR DEALS TO ENTER THIS COMP

And now to the fun part
Each week we will be giving away a total $50-60 bucks in vouchers and a Buckscoop tote bag to the deal with the highest temp

Round one starts now!!!

Good luck peoples

    Why is it that as soon as we put up anything about pirates in the forum Johnny Depp appears?
    Why? Are you serious??? :whistling: I need no reason why. In fact, I think this competition should have a prize for the person who can legitimately insert a picture of Johnny in the most threads during a week. :twisted:
  • nod
    lol would you call that Johnny spam? :w00t:

    :D - it takes Johnny to make you pop your head up these days huh Ruby
  • ScarletRubies
    I can live with Johnny spam. My Viagra spam is starting to make me laugh, though - I think I've seen it as cheap as 92% off.... amazing prices! ;) As for me doing a meerkat impersonation, Donkey, my computer chair isn't comfy enough to keep me chained to the PC these days!!! Seriously though, I was away for a couple of weeks, and am still getting my head around being home, I guess. Nice to be missed. Did Johnny call?
  • lilpretzel
    Gee we just can't let our poor Johnny lovers miss out. I will be giving away a very special Johnny Depp prize pack in the last week of our competition :w00t: Yes, it will have a mini poster from Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl starring Johnny Depp :twisted: and more. All bribes accepted :p
  • nod
    I vote one for NO viagra spam in Buckscoop :D
  • nod

  • craftykiwi
    Wow thanks!! Who'd have thought a $1 pair of socks would have been so popular! Pity they didn't have any left at my store, but the prize more than makes up for it. Those lucky '8' numbers must have been fortelling something after all. Congrats to the other winners too.
