Help your favorite non-profit, get more cash back at ShareMyDeal

So I logged into my facebook account today and got a message from a friend that hasn't been in touch for quite long, and the message was about... Donation Invitation. You know I wasn't too thrilled that was the only reason she emailed me for all these years but I donated regardless. This is not about my friend or me, it's about those poor kids that may benefit from the donation.

Plus facebook made it fun. They are running this 30-day national competition that encourages people to help win cash awards on behalf of their favorite nonprofit. Participants in America’s Giving Challenge will compete for daily and overall cash awards based on the number of donations generated for a cause, not dollars raised.

There are more than seven thousand of causes that are competing to receive highest number of donation now and chances are, your favorite cause are one of them. Remember at the end of competition, the number one cause will receive $50,000 award and second and third runner up will each receive $25,000 award. If you already did or plan to donate before the 11/6 deadline for this Giving Challenge, wants to show the ultimate respect to you.

I looked at our transaction reports for the past month, it turns out 6PM has been our favorite store for everyone. So I will make it simple, mostly for the support team because we have to track this manually - after donating to your favorite cause thru facebook’s Giving Challenge, come and post on our facebook discussion board with your ShareMyDeal ID, we'll increase the cash back rate for your 6PM order(s) in the entire month of November to 7%. Come on, every lady can use a spare pair of heels and deals at 6PM makes it a nobrainer.

Make you proud, make us proud.

Don't You Just Love SHOPGIRL

How many pairs of UGG boots did you get last night?

When I saw shopgirl updated her famous 6PM thread three days ago, I knew these boots were going to be out of stock in a split second as soon as the deal is alive. So I woke up this morning and went to just to see how accurate my estimate was and guess what, I got a "CGI error".

Wow, congratulations, you gals actually brought down 6PM's server. Well, maybe ShareMyDeal members didn't contribute much to it, because most of the orders I saw from our community were placed last night, when there were plenty in stock. Seriously what I just heard is it took someone two hours this morning to find a pair that still has her size, go through the order process and only get an out of stock message, ah... two minutes after she clicked the submit button (yeah, the wait time is that long).

Largely thanks to shopgirl, not only for the Huge UGG deal she reported three days ago but also for her accurate estimate on which hour 6PM would update their price tag. Nice!!

For those of who missed it this time, don't worry, there will be next time, just bookmark this thread. You will get your pair(s) next time.

Thanks to our developer team, it only took a week from getting a feature request to making it available for all our members at - Introducing My Stores list.

It allows you to pick your favorite ones from hundreds of stores in ShareMyDeal network. You only need to click once to add a store to your favorite list and that’s it.

Can you say Woo-Hoo?

Our July number is out and you gals totally rocked! I am not going to reveal which merchant it is, but based on our rough tally, we ( members) just placed close to 10% of the over all orders on the official website of a top brand skincare store during a promotional week in July. You would know which brand I am talking about if you are a dedicated beauty GWP deal hunter. With this kind of buying power, it's pretty easy to work with their marketing managers.

What does it mean to you as an individual member, you may ask. Well, let me put it this way: if something goes wrong with cash back tracking, we can get it resolved pretty quickly with priority. For example, one of our specialists caught an early reporting issue with cash back orders, we contacted their marketing manager about the potential issue though we had no solid proof at that point. The merchant took us seriously and fixed the issue right away. And everything happened in a short time before those transactions got possibly reported to about 20 SMD member accounts as canceled transaction at scheduled reporting time the following day.

There is no way we could pull this off without the community backing us up and I couldn't be happier about it.
