New idea waiting for your feedback

I was thinking of this idea for a while, but today I had some free time so I decided to just ask you about it.

There are a lot of members that shop online frequently and find a lot of very good deals that are just unbelievable. I was thinking of making a contest or rewarding those who share deals with other members. For example if today Kohl’s is selling item X at 50% off and there is also a 20% off QR coupon not many members will know about this, but one member will. Would members be interested in sharing their great deals/finds on the blog? Of course it would need to be a merchant that QR has in the shopping section. If this merchant also has coupons I would edit the blog and add the coupons to maximize the savings and maybe even increase the % cash back rate. If a deal that someone posts is popular (other members place an order to buy this item or take advantage of this sale) this specific member gets some kind of a bonus. What you think about this? Are there QR shoppers who would participate in this? We would need more than one person to help us with this to make it possible.


UPDATED QUESTION: Do you all want to start this right away or wait until the QR blog comes out later in the week (I hope)

Hi,

I really like this idea. All of us want to get the most for our money and there are coupon deals out there. We could help each other find them and post them on the blog so we could all participate. Great idea and I'd be more than willing to share my coupon deals with QR members.

Bestdealmagazines.com has a special deal everyday on a specific magazine. We could post the deal here so everyone will know about it and can take advantage of it.

I think it is an awesome idea ! I love it !

maiah said...

i love to shop! that's the bottom line! so i definitely would love it...count me in!

I have search coupons and discount promo code to help me lower the cost of shopping online, so i think that this idea is brilliant!

to start of, here are the list of my favorite online/catalog shopping merchandise:

Old Navy
Jcpenny [its not in the shopping list thou]
Guess [i think this one also]
Target
Petite Sophisticate
victoria secret [2 bad its not in the shopping list]
Autoanything
drugstore.com

those are just some of the stores i shop often.

I think this is a great idea, makes it like a cooperative where everyone, at least those of us that read the blog, can get the most for their money.

I love this idea and would be happy to contribute. I post deals at bbf a lot and would love to be able to share with other QR members.

I think this is a great idea! Gas is expensive so we're doing more online shopping. Everything costs more so we are all looking for the best deals we can find. It will be very helpful to find out what coupons QR has for the good deals that members post.

I would love this...I was thinking the other day it would be good if QR could list the stores and coupons they had available - some other sites do that (I usually see if the codes are the same at a couple of sites and then come back to QR to make my purchase)...

I like this idea too.

Another thing I would like to see is an ongoing list of merchants that credit for buying gift cards. That was really helpful when it was posted at the holidays.

drcowgirl said...

great idea. I am always on the lookout for a bargain.

aunttam said...

I love it! I'm constantly researching deals to see if I can save "just a little bit more!"

bmcalister39 said...

I like the idea too!

Jiya said...

I really like this idea!

Disneyshopping.com has a special today - $5 off certain items with the code "takefive". I'm planning on shopping there (through QR, of course!) as soon as I finish my daily clicks.

blinki said...

This sounds like a great way to save, and earn more money.

Carol said...

Dmitry,

I'd like to start this right away. Thanks for including us in your decision!

maiah said...

Carol, too excited are we? hehehe

I am too, dont worry! i think this is great!

Heather said...

San Jose Project Linus said...

Woman Within promo code WW21405 $20 off of $60 purchased

Bobby said...

Wat a great idea. We can all use a little extra savings to make up for what we have to spend on gas.
We'll be helping each other.

Vicky said...

I love this idea... Let's do it!

Kat said...

That's a great idea Dmitry.

Janice said...

This is a great idea. I love saving money.
Thanks.

jaspersgirl said...

This is a wonderful idea! Thanks, Dmitry!

Jiya said...

I think we should start this right away!

And a correction to my earlier post -- the code for disneyshopping.com is "take5", with "shipfive" for $5 flat fee shipping.

devin said...

this is a great idea, will you be using the new proposed qr site blog to do this? if shopping deals, general blog, credited today etc. are divided so one could instantly post to a specific are that would be easier to post
Thanks!

FloridaGrandma said...

Jiya,

Thanks for mentioning the special Disney Shopping sale. I managed to get an order in last night before the sale ended with the $5 shipping. Thank you!

Dunkjam said...

I love shopping at QVC! I am always ordering something that they have as the today's special value.

Cindy said...

This is a great idea. I think we can give you a break and wait until next week's blog comes out

I just got a coupon in mail for Kohls for 30% off...usually I go online to the boards to find this particular code. Every few months they give card holders only 15-30% off. I usually get the 15% and look online which is always posted on the boards. Do these coupons we get in the mail for cardholders only (I am sure there are many Kohl's cardholders) count? I know I have not been credited using one of these coupons from a board which was someones they received in the mail. The coupon is good from May 15-20th and usually they run the free shipping on $75.00 at the same time. I have been credited in the past for Kohl's using this, just not this time. What is the reason that Kohl's won't pay for those who use coupons but shop thru you?

Disney has free shipping for orders over 50 dollars and if you spend 75 you get two tickets to the new narnia movie. Offers are only for this weekend.
