SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 17, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- dealspl.us, a user-generated social shopping site, today announced the launch of its Money Makers Program. Just in time for holiday bargain shopping, the dealspl.us Money Makers Program allows deal and coupon enthusiasts to earn money doing what they do best – finding and sharing great deals and coupons. With dealspl.us, deal-savvy shoppers not only save money, they can also earn money by sharing their deals, coupons and insights with others in the dealspl.us community, their social networks, websites and blogs. In addition, the company has launched the dealspl.us Widget to help Money Makers monetize their websites or blogs with relevant, money-saving coupons.
Currently more than three million users visit dealspl.us each month to seek out, share and discuss money-saving deals and coupons. The new Money Makers Program expands the company's reach to new audiences, creates a more incentivized user base, and supports its commitment to provide partners with a more engaged and active community.
"At dealspl.us, we're devoted to helping consumers easily find and share the best deals and coupons available," said Jason Lee, CEO, dealspl.us. "We wanted to sweeten the dealspl.us experience – that's why we're introducing the Money Makers Program to provide users many opportunities to earn money for their time and participation in the community. This new program will help us build deeper engagement with our fans this holiday season – and the community as a whole, as we are matching donations made through Money Makers to the esteemed U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program."
Unlike some other sites that only reward users if their contribution results in a sale, Money Makers Program participants earn money when others click on deals and coupons they've posted. Additionally, users can earn money by sharing dealspl.us coupons on other sites. By simply copying and pasting special Money Makers links or embedding the dealspl.us Widget, users get paid for sharing any coupon, not just their own.
Money Makers also earn money in the newly created "Ask & Share" section where users can share details and insights on shopping deals and coupons, offer product opinions and general "how to" help to those in the dealspl.us community. Users can post questions, answers and rate responses, and Money Makers can even earn money for their top-rated answers.
No other deals and coupons site allows users to make money in so many easy ways, for example:
- Post a deal: Earn $3.00 per every 1,000 views
- Update a deal: Once approved, earn $1.50 per 1,000 views (original poster of the deal or coupon also gets $1.50 per 1,000 views)
- Post a coupon: Earn $3.00 per 1,000 views ($30 maximum earnings on any one coupon)
- Share a special link/widget: Earn $10.00-30.00 per 1,000 clicks on the shared link or link in a widget. Post an answer in the Ask & Share section: Users earn $3.00 per 1,000 views (Note: users earnings are accrued only while their answer is rated the highest)
In addition, Money Makers can manage their accounts, check their stats and track earnings through the Money Makers Dashboard. At the end of each month, users are paid via PayPal for every $50 they've earned. If they have not yet earned $50, their earnings will roll over to the next month until they reach the $50 mark.
"Money Makers is one of the most flawless and creative ideas I've ever witnessed implemented into a website to thank users for their support and loyalty," said Alejandro Parjus, a Money Makers beta user. "It's a great honor to be a part of Money Makers."
During the holiday season, dealspl.us is giving Money Makers members the option to donate the money they earn in the program to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. dealspl.us will match all charity donations made and will continue to offer charitable donation options after the holidays.
