The eagle eyed among you may have noticed a slight change to the top of the screen, there’s a little login screen! That’s right, you will now be able to register an account at Bargaineering for free (like everything else on Bargaineering!). Why would you want to register an account? There are several reasons. We will begin rolling out a few new features that will be available only to registered users. I can’t say what they are yet but it’ll be some fun little things that I think you’ll all enjoy.

Next, you get the opportunity to earn Bargaineering Bucks (ββ) that you can turn into extra entries into contests, Bargaineering schwag, ING referrals, and other fun things. You can learn more about Bargaineering Bucks here.

As you read about Bargaineering Bucks, you’ll notice you earn ββ for doing things on the site like commenting, registering for the newsletter, etc. I know many of you have already done this so please email me to let me know so I can properly credit your account. You’ll have to act fast because after June 14th, we will not be crediting you for actions you’ve taken in the past. I want to give you credit for everything you have done so please act quickly.

You will also get more reading space. You may not notice this but on the homepage there are no advertisements on the left hand side. On individual articles, there are advertisements on the left hand side. When you register and log in, you won’t see those left hand advertisements ever. You’ll get more screen real estate to read the articles of Bargaineering contributors and less space wasted on advertisements you don’t care about!

Finally, you can get bragging rights! We list all the users and their stash of Bargaineering cash at the Bargaineering Bucks Leaderboard! (be sure to fill out your profile because we’ll use it to share some information about you on the leaderboard!)

  2. nickel says:

    I’m a member, and I just earned $1 for posting this. Woohoo!

  3. nickel says:

    By the way, I heard a rumor that on July 1st, Jim will be converting all Bargaineering Bucks to real money and sending out payments via PayPal.

  4. Jim says:

    They will be convertible at 🙂

  5. nickel says:

    Dude, you could’ve at least made that a live link if you’re expecting me to pay!

  6. ManVsDebt says:

    $1,000 bonus dollar for calling into the Personal Finance Hour? See nickel, it was all for the money…

  7. ObliviousInvestor says:

    Very neat idea.

    Also, I’m envying your “incoming links” widget when signed into WP. 🙂

    …Or rather, not the widget, but the links themselves.

  8. Jim, will there be a link between the forum account and this one?

    Also, will the BBs be backed by thengold standard or are you going with a central banking model? Will you sell bonds? Control money supply? What guaruntees can you make about inflation control?

    • Jim says:

      I have to figure out the logistics of linking the two, once I figure that out I’ll let you all know. Until then, it’ll be two systems.

      It’s fiat money (no cash value!), no bonds and I do control money supply. No guarantees against inflation. 🙂

  9. CuriousAG says:

    My first comment on Bargaineering 🙂

    I am not sure of cashing BBs, but I am certainly excited abou the “new features” available exclusively to the registered users.

  10. Suzanne1946 says:

  12. Sandy says:

    Call me stupid but where do you register?

  13. Jeremy says:

    I am rich with bargaineering bucks! Nickel is no match.

  14. angelsong214 says:

    This is going to be such fun! I’m learning a lot here, and it’s only going to get better!

  15. nickel says:

    I need a bailout. Can you issue $700T and start passing it out?

  16. Yana says:

    Nifty. Looking forward to converting my bucks to PayPal 😛

  17. That One Caveman says:

    Very clever! I can’t wait to see how this fleshes out.

  18. sk says:

    Can’t wait to see my piggy bank smiling.

  19. Green_Panda says:

    I’m curious Jim, how did you come up with this idea? I’m excited to try this out.

  20. Tinman says:

    I haven’t seen anything this good since I first set eyes on the Emerald City! Keep up the good work Jim, this is a no slacker zone!

  21. Cap says:

  22. Lucy says:

    I’ve been lurking here for quite a while. Finally taking advantage of the occasion to leave my first comment at Bargaineering. 😀

  23. eric says:

    I was trying to log in with my forum ID when I realized there was no link between the two! Boo haha. It’s ok; I went ahead and registered. For some reason I’m sure saladdin would like his forum posts to count for BB too. Expensive!

    • saladdin says:

      no credit for forum posts? this is just an example of the man keeping me down.


      • Jim says:

        You get $25 for each 100 forum posts chief, so you do get credit.

        • eric says:

          Woohoo. I’ll let you do the math for my forum posts too then Jim. Thanks! 🙂

          • Jim says:

            To get credit for past activity, you need to send me an an email with your usernames and what you’ve done. That’s how I know who has gotten credit or not, please shoot me an email when you get a chance.

  24. alanschram says:

    Wow. You created your own currency. Wasn’t I reading about that somewhere..?

    Also, commenting is now a game where I can BEAT people? Glee!
