*Expired* Cash Giveaway from Buzzillions

by Freebies4Mom on October 27, 2008 1:20 pm

Buzzillions is the place to go to for the “Buzz” on “zillions” of products by compiling product reviews from real people just like you. Ok, maybe they only have 3,667, 981 reviews (and the number is going up every few seconds). This would be the perfect website to visit for doing research before any purchase. If you typically read the reviews on Amazon.com and are curious why Buzzillions is better, click on that link and read further. Basically their goal is to be an unbiased hub for product reviews (and they aren’t selling the products unlike Amazon.com).

What does Buzzillions want to give away on Freebies 4 Mom? Two lucky readers will win $25 CASH. I will be mailing that cash prize to you in the form of a money order for you to use on whatever you want.

How to enter – This giveaway is closed.
1. Visit Buzzillions
Enter a product you are interested in buying in the Search box. You can be as general or as specific as you want to be.

2. Leave a comment on this post and tell me these four things (all required for entry):
A. What product did you search for?
B. Did you find the product reviews you read useful?
C. How would you change Buzzillions to make it more user-friendly?
D. What is your first name and the beginning of your email address (everything before the @ symbol, please don’t type your full email address in the comments to protect your privacy)

If your entry does not contain ALL of this information, I will delete it to be fair to the other people entering.

3. How do you know if you won?
You need to visit me on Tuesday, November 4 and read the giveaway announcement. I will announce the first name of the two winners there. If they have a profile set-up that enables me to view their email address then I will email them. Otherwise you have to check to see if you won and then email me in order to claim your prize. I will verify that you are who you say you are by confirming that the email address you use has the same beginning as the email address you left in your comment (that is why I’m asking for that information).

This giveaway will close on Monday, November 3 at midnight (CST). I’ll announce the first names of the winners in a new post the next morning and contact the winners by email (if their email address is accessible in their profile). I will draw the names of the winners from the eligible entries by using the random number generator at Random.org out of the eligible entries. If a winner does not contact me within 48 hours by email, I will draw a new winner. This giveaway is only open to residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older. Please only enter this giveaway once per household.

Find out about my other giveaways you can enter right now.

Hi Heather! 1) I searched for Clearblue Easy Fertility Monitor on Buzzillions as we are having trouble conceiving (it’s been over a year of trying). 2) What I found useful about the reviews section was the first few words of some reviews were listed before I even clicked on them. They seemed very impartial. 3) What could be improved, however, is that I spelled ‘fertility’ wrong the first time in the search field and it came up with Nikon cameras and digital thermostats for me to look at! A ‘did you mean _________’ like Google does for mispellings would be great. 4) Kelly (reporterkc)Have a great day!

I originally typed in Dirtdevil w/o the space and pulled up a few reviews but they didn’t really help.

A. Toddler bedB. I thought the reviews were very useful, and honestly have no complaint about Buzzillions. The search box was clearly visible and easy to see. I like how you can search by most reviewed or priced low to high in the search box above the items for view. Buzillions also has a nice pop up box with a view of the product a little larger for easier faster searching. It even has a compare box to help make choices easier.C. There is not to much i can find to complain about. A way to improve would be by adding more reviewed merchandise for people to review!D. Bridget partiesbybridget@

I really like the one line reviews so that I can quickly scan and make quick decision about the item I would like to look at more closely.3. I did other searches and the price was not always in the review. Need that. It would be nice to know other sources to buy items with links. Not sure what the flags on the right of the review indicted…best review? best item? best search terms matched? That could be explained on the little flag itself.4.

Okay here we go:1. Searched for Nintendo Wii2. Reviews were great, found out that rechargable batteries should be used in the remotes, and there were a TON of reviews!3. I think that since I typed in Wii, maybe they should somehow know when that is searched for, to bring up another category with options to choose from like consoles, games, remotes, nunchucks, other and choose from that list to get a more detailed listing for the exact Wii thing you want to see and then maybe show the top rated games in different age categories or the last 5 items in each category reviewed!4.

ajmorris11 is the beginning of my email, my name is Amanda.I am fascinated. I didn’t imagine they could cover such a broad range… I searched for the Chicco Trevi Twin stroller and was shocked when it popped up with 26 reviews. My favorite part was that each review gave you a mini bio on the person giving it (ie mother of one, first time mother, etc…). Can’t think of much they could improve except sassing up the website a little. Giving a few more graphics like yours now has. Font was small when review came up and the pages were busy in general..

Two things in particular I wanted to know, besides the usual sizing/comfort issues, were about if the soles wear easily (our cheap Target shoes wore out within 2 months) and if they make feet smell, both addressed by reviewers!C. To make Buzzillions more user-friendly, I would suggest adding links to more stores, like Amazon as well as some mom-run sites. I especially think it would be nice for the items to link to the official sites of the products that have been reviewed.

What a great site!! I am so glad to bookmark it for a resource in the future. I searched for Hasbro Tinker Toys as it is a product I am going to be purchasing this christmas. I thought the search was really easy and informative. The reviews reinforced my reasoning for wanting to purchase the toy in the first place and the information in each review showing where the review came from and the price of the product at that store helped me narrow down where I can expect to recieve the best pricing.The ONLY change I would make would be to possibly add some sort of search filter that would allow you to possibly sort in terms of price or location or date of review. Other than that I LOVED the site.My name is Jenn and my email begins with JLWalden1.Thanks for sharing this great site and for the opportunity to win!!

I went to Buzzillions and searched ski boots. I am looking to buy a pair and found the reviews useful. I am not all that familiar with boots so I would suggest adding a category dividing the reviews by boots for beginner, intermediate or advanced skiers. I saw some of the reviewers comment on the level that they would recommend for the particular boot, but it would be helpful to narrow a search by level initially.My name is Susan and the beginning to my email is iheartpinkandgreen@

I searched for the new Apple Macbook. As the site did not have it, I looked at one of the previous macbook models, in the black color. The customer reviews were very useful, seeing that I’ve heard negative comments in the past,but after seeing the raves and majority good reviews, I have put my approval on the product. To make the website even more resourceful, I suggest that the website show or list popular items on the homepage, or maybe just items that have gotten great (and plenty of) reviews. It would be interesting to determine the most popular products. Debbie quillingdebra@

A. I searched for the Nikon S550 – it’s a camera that I’ve been considering, amongst othersB. Sort of – everyone had something good and bad to say about it, but it was so varied that it seems like it was a godsend for some and just okay for others. It just reaffirmed my suspicions that I’m just going to have to take the plunge, get a camera, and see how I like it. After all, it’s not like the store will let me just test-drive the camera for a week and take it back…C. I would have liked to see a couple of “professional” reviews from other sites. It’s lovely that they had 75 reviews, but it was a bit taxing to read them all, not to mention everyone had a different use and expectations of it. It’d be nice to read a review from a neutral party that just compared it to other things on the market. Obviously a person who’s used to shooting with an SLR is going to rate the camera lower than someone who’s only previously used a disposable. D. First name: Rita @ My Precious Pennies.

searched for xbox 360well up comes 3 different consoles at the top of the results page, the elite, the silver and the plain old xbox 360. Reviews are great to have for consumers, I use them all of the time before purchases. From big screens to home entertainment systemthe one thing I would change is the compare feature, if it’s going to return results that confuse the hell out of ya, just leave it off. I compared the three different elite, silver, and regular xbox360, now these are essentially the exact same consoles, just different accessories, and the comparison was telling me the regular xbox360 outperforms the elite and silver in graphics, # of games available and speed when in actuality I know these should be equal amongst the three choicesRon Millerbarracudaron@
