Buxr Review and Giveaway (Chance to win an Amazon Gift Card, Buxr Travel Mug or Tote)

Buxr is a small, tightly-knit community of bargain hunters who share, review and rate the best current deals on the internet. You can find lists of freebies and discounts there, and they make it as easy as possible to save money.

Active Buxr members are rewarded with a chance to win daily cash prizes. They also award a monthly prize to the member with the most points, and to the top three people who invited the most friends to join. Members earn points by submitting deals, voting on deals, and commenting. All-in-all it’s an amazing deals site.

Buxr has done a lot to distinguish themselves from the other coupon sites out there, and worked hard to build a community, not just a list of coupons. Many of the members post and review deals regularly (the better to win one of Buxr’s frequent giveaways) and they make sure that everything is current and accurate. In fact, one of the very best things about Buxr is that you don’t have to waste your time searching for a coupon that actually works. Their staff moderates the coupons that users submit and makes sure they are valid before they go live. The users then rate and review the coupons so it’s easy to see at a glance if a deal has expired.

Buxr is sponsoring a giveaway for Wise Bread readers! You have a chance to win the following:

A $100 Amazon.com Gift Card

To be entered, use this link to visit Buxr and sign up to become a community member. They will randomly award the $100 gift certificate to one new member. Please do use the links in this article, otherwise they won’t know you came from Wise Bread and you won’t be entered.

One of Three $50 Amazon.com Gift Cards

Tweet this giveaway. Please use both @WiseBreadDeals and #LuvBuxr in your tweet so that we see it and count it. We will randomly select three people as winners.

One of 20 large reusable shopping totes or one of 10 double-wall insulated travel mugs:

Visit Buxr and have a look around. Then come back here and post a comment below with a link to your favorite Buxr deal. We will randomly select 30 winners from among those who comment.

Giveaway Rules: Contest ends Monday, September 27th at 11:59 pm CST. Winners will be announced after September 27th on the original post and Twitter winners will be announced via Twitter. Winners will also be contacted via email and Twitter Direct Message. You can enter all three drawings — once by leaving a comment with a link to a great Buxr deal, once by tweeting, and once by becoming a Buxr community member. Only tweets that contain both "@WiseBreadDeals" and "#LuvBuxr" will be entered. (Otherwise, we won't see it.)

Good Luck!

I'm getting 4 packs for my daughter! She collects these and trades them with her friends, and these will be ones that none of them have. She'll be thrilled!

I like "Free Sample Cinnabon Cream of Wheat " because it sounds yummy, and I'm anxious to try it without having to buy a whole box.

I posted that deal long ago and it just makes me laugh. There have been so many great deals on Buxr that it's hard to pick just one but this is one I've shown tons of people.

Buxr is a great community with some really great deals. There are so many to choose from, this is one of my favorites that was posted recently. http://www.facebook.com/SutterHome?v=app_152297238117374#!/SutterHome?v=wall

A great deal for a good cause and a fun night, who can beat that combination.

It was my understanding that there were more "gifts" available than there were people that commented....Also, "Winners will be announced after September 27th on the original post and Twitter winners will be announced via Twitter."

SO, who won??
