CheapCheapLah Monthly Deal Posting Competition

A new year and we are going to have some changes. For the last 5 months we have been running weekly deal posting competition, which basically have one random winner each week, and more you post, better the chance is. We got this weekly comp up and running to encourage participation from our Singapore bargain hunters, hoping that with a bit of gamification + financial incentive would get more people involved.

However it didn't appear to work and one guy won most the weeks.

Well, so we decided that we are going to try something different this year. Instead of weekly comp, the schedule will be moved to monthly. Instead of one winner, we will have four winners each month.

  • 3 winners drawn from users posting deals, and each deal posted earns you an entry
  • 1 winner drawn from users posting comments. Again each comment posted = one entry

Prizes will be drawn at the end of each month, and each winner will win SGD $25 in Digital Gift Card from Wogi. Same rules as last year that (1) staffs (2) store reps and (3) users residing outside of Singapore are not eligible to enter.

    • illumination (28 comments)

    Congratulations! There's also an update to prizes. Previously we've been sending the prize via PayPal's Family & Friends fund transfer. However it has been brought to my awareness that (1) PayPal F&F fund transfer is not supported (2) PayPal has really bump up the fee when transferring to a different currency so it's no longer economical. In light of this, if you do not have a PayPal Australia account (as ours is), we'll be sending the prize to you via WOGIflex gift card which you can then convert to various gift cards from actual merchants.

    Let me know how it works for you.

  • I have PayPal but since you have the option of the WOGIflex gift card I will choose this then, thanks a lot for this competition!

    Congratulations!

    The monthly rewards will take a break for the rest of the year. It was first introduced to hopefully get more community users to share the deals. However over the years it has been the same faithful users who have been posting the deals (and winning the monthly prizes). That sort of defeating the original intention of the comp, which is encouraging participation.

    I'll have to go back to the drawing board, and might introduce more deal posting comp next year.

    Also we'll be adding a new gift card provider next year — GiftPay who has recently launched in Singapore. We have been using them in Australia and New Zealand for many years and they offer instant delivery of gift cards, whereas with Wogi there's at least one day of delay + they've been charging extra for "admin fee".

    Stay tuned.
