FAQ: Shoppers

BBB works by allowing the consumer to buy products at participating BBB online stores at a discount and be rewarded with valuable "Buddy Bucks" in the process. "Buddy Bucks" are redeemable with purchase for products at participating "We Buddy" social shopping sites.  Upon checkout you have the option of alerting your Facebook friends to your purchase with a "Buddy Alert" Facebook post.  When any of your friends buys that product—or any designated Buddy product from the store you referred them to—you get more "Buddy Bucks".  When your friends do the same thing—alert their Facebook friends of their purchase and those friends buy something from that same store—your friend gets more Buddy Bucks and you get MORE Buddy Bucks.  Same thing for your friend's friend's friends.  Buddy Bucks are issued three levels down thus the name "Buddy Buddy Buddy".

 

  • How does BBB work?        

    To understand how the Buddy Buddy Buddy process works, have a look at this Infographic, or watch this video.


  •  
  • How much are "Buddy Bucks" worth?        

    "Buddy Bucks" are valued by the individual Etailer.  Each Buddy Buck typically carries a value of about 50 cents.


  •  
  • How do I redeem my "Buddy Bucks"?        

    "Buddy Bucks" are redeemed by purchasing selected "Buddy Products" at participating BBB online stores.  The extent to which you can pay for products with "Buddy Bucks" depends on the store and the product.  More popular products will be available for a "mix" of fewer dollars and more "Buddy Bucks".  Certain products may be purchased entirely with "Buddy Bucks".


  •  
  • Where do I redeem my "Buddy Bucks"?        

    "Buddy Bucks" are portable in the sense that Buddy Bucks earned from a purchase at one store can be redeemed with purchase at any participating "We Buddy" online store.


  •  
  • How do I tell my Facebook friends about my "Buddy" purchase?        

    When you buy a BBB product from any of our participating online shopping sites, you will have the option of telling ALL of your Facebook friends about the purchase, or selecting certain friends.  Your friends will receive a "Buddy Alert" from BBB with the details of your purchase.  Further, with this powerful online shopping tool, you can re-send the "Buddy Alert" up to three times to maximize impact and interest.


  •  
  • How do I know how many "Buddy Bucks" I have accrued?        

    Simply click the "Check My Buddy Bucks" button from any page of our site, or you can click here to check your total now.


  •  
  • Can I trade my "Buddy Bucks" in for cash?        

    No. "Buddy Bucks" are used only against purchasing "Buddy Products" at participating "We Buddy" online stores.


  •  
  • How will I know if a store takes "Buddy Bucks"?        

    Participating BBB stores will display the "We Buddy" emblem on their site:

    While not every item in that store will be a "Buddy Product", those items that are will be designated with the BBB icon and the number of "Buddy Bucks" you receive upon purchase (or number of Buddy Bucks required for a Redeem sale item) will be displayed.


  •  
  • How many "Buddy Bucks" do I get when I purchase a "Buddy Product"?        

    You receive a minimum of 3 "Buddy Bucks" for every purchase up to $100.  An additional "Buddy Buck" is given for every $33.33 above the initial $100.00 purchase price.


  •  
  • How many "Buddy Bucks" do I get when one of the people I've referred buys a product I have recommended (someone to whom you've sent a "Buddy Alert")?

    When a "Buddy" (a Facebook friend you have directly referred with a "Buddy Alert") buys the same product you purchased, you receive 66% — or 2/3 the number of "Buddy Bucks" as when you purchased the item.  When a "Buddy Buddy" (a social networking friend one of your friends have referred), you receive 33% or 1/3 the number of "Buddy Bucks".  If either a Buddy Buddy or a Buddy Buddy Buddy buys any "Buddy Product" at all from the store, you receive 33% or 1/3 the number of "Buddy Bucks" as compared to a direct purchase in either case.


  •  
  • Are there any hidden charges?        

    Nope!  In the true spirit of the best of the social media tools, BBB has No Fee for the user and No Sign-Up requirements!  All you need is a Facebook account.


  •  
  • How long are "Buddy Bucks" valid for?        

    "Buddy Bucks" expire in six months.


  •  
  • Can anyone participate?        

    You must have a Facebook account to participate in BBB.


  •  
  • How do I find stores that "Buddy"?        

    A list of links to participating We Buddy online stores will be posted to this site once the program starts to ramp up.


  •  
  • How do I get started... or How do I "Buddy"?        

    Simply purchase a "Buddy Product" from a participating Etailer and just as you are about to complete your transaction, you will have the option of alerting you Facebook friends of your purchase and that gets the whole process started.
