Adds Shopping Section

August 18, 2008 · 0 comments

The LuckySearch search and win site just launched a new shopping section as an additional way for their members to earn points redeemable for gift certificates and merchandise!
I haven’t had a chance to do a full analysis yet but I can tell you that most merchants award between 3 and 7 points per dollar spent. Based on the value of their cheapest $25 redemption (2500 points, for an Amazon GC), one point = one cent… so 1 point per dollar is 1%, 3 points per dollar = 3%, etc.
Just checking out a few merchants for comparison’s sake:
Eddie Bauer at 4 points per dollar (4%) is equal to the rates at Ebates and FatWallet; in other words, very competitive.
FTD at 6 points per dollar (6%) is about average (Ebates and FatWallet offer 10%).
NetMagazines at 22 points per dollar (22%) is the highest of the programs I checked (next closest was 15%).
The site also offers 15 points when one of your referrals makes a purchase.
LuckySearch’s owner emailed to tell me that they had a lot more merchants coming soon and that we’d see some other enhancements to the site soon that have been in the works for a long time.
Soooo… just giving it a quick once-over, I like the LuckySearch shopping section. Their shopping rates are reasonable to high, and the site is easy to navigate. I think the site has a lot of potential.
If you’re not a member of LuckySearch already, you can read my review of it here, or go ahead and sign up with my link here (thanks)!
