Do You Know About Bargaineering Bucks?

Email  Print Print  

Every so often I like to remind new visitors and commenters that we have a pretty sweet rewards system here at Bargaineering, this is one of those reminders. I call them Bargaineering Bucks and they’re worth absolutely nothing in terms of real money but they can be used to bid on items in the Bargaineering Bucks auction store.

You can register here to start earning bucks today. Be sure to register at least once every few months as I clear out accounts that haven’t logged in recently.

The most common way to earn bucks is by commenting on posts (you also get points for visiting each day and logging in) and the most common way to spend them is in that there store.

If you are already a registered user, thanks! If you could be so kind as to share why you like the program so much and what you’ve gotten out of it, I’d appreciate it!

    Here comes a big shot of Bargaineering Buck inflation.

    Back in the day I won my first auction for 16BBs. Times have changed.

    Oh look, I earned another BB for this comment 🙂

      Don’t worry. The temporary inflation is much worse that the long term inflation. Plenty of people will work on adding to their Bucks total until they go back to just reading the articles in their RSS feeds over the weekend.

    I check this site everyday for new posts and insightful comments, it’s always nice to be rewarded for doing things you already do. Just wondering what I’ll end up spending on in the auctions once I eventually run out of ING referrals.

  3. zapeta says:

    Shh! No need to remind people that this exists! I miss the days of winning an auction for an ING referral for 10 BB.

    I think its a great program and rewards those of us who read and add to the discussion.

    The BB reward for comments encourages posts from those who might have an insightful idea to share, but do not usually join in on discussions. The more thoughts, considerations and ideas posted, the more enlightening the article becomes.

    early on, I picked up a couple of crest white strip boxes before my wedding. Saved me like $80!! I forget how many BB they cost me, but I do know it saved me $80.

  6. Dave says:

    I have the problem that my system logs me out periodically, and I only realize it when I try to make a comment have to sign back in… I think I’d have double the BB’s if I was actually signed in when I visited… other than that, I think the program is great. I’m going to horde my BB’s though, and wait for a “Major Award” to go up for auction – I want to see how many BB’s a new plasma TV or an iPad would fetch… 🙂

    I think systems like this really do encourage people to post more when they might otherwise not bother. For some reason, even just a small reward makes it worth it.

    Yea that would be awesome. Jim you should try auctioning off a few things of value. Go buy a flat panel tv and put it up for auction here. I bet that would drive some traffic.

    (It might also attract some typical internet commenters)

    I would love to bid on some awesome SWAG

  9. Shirley says:

    I would like to see more multiple referral auctions. I have so far only seen one and my BBs were low. 🙁

  10. ziglet19 says:

    I can’t seem to sucessfully bid anymore, ever since about December. I have no idea why, I always get an error message 🙁

    • Shirley says:

      I had quite a time bidding recently also. It showed an error message about “Out of Memory at Line__”.

      Jim did all he could to fix it, but nothing worked until he suggested that it was an Internet Explorer glitch.

      I tried with Firefox and had no problems.
      Hope this helps.

        i noticed this as well. been using chrome more, so not a problem. that said, i have not tried ie9 yet, perhaps that will eliminate the issue.

        • ziglet19 says:

          Thanks for the feedback – that’s exactly the error message i get. I will try a different browser. Thanks!

          • Strebkr says:

            If you are still using IE, you should really try out Google Chrome. It is the future in terms of browsers. It plays nice with all sites and is not buggy like IE. They claim it is as fast as a cannon, lightning and the speed of sound. Don’t believe me, do a youtube search for Google Chrome Speed Test. Its a good 2 min video!
