November is OzBargain's birthday month, and on the 27th of November we will be celebrating our EIGHTH BIRTHDAY! Yes it is all about the lucky 8 — pronounced similarly to "prosper" or "wealth" in Chinese. While OzBargain is not really about wealth creation (please contact a financial adviser on that), your money does go more miles by spending wisely, and this community is here to help you find the cheapest price and all the latest sales.
So this year we have decided to run a birthday greeting competition, similar to the one we did last year. For the next 3 weeks you can get prepared for your Happy Birthday greetings — it can be in the form of a
- photo / graphics art work
- animated GIF
Or maybe you can get a suggestion from last year's winning entry — hanging an actual banner over a busy motorway.
However to celebrate OzBargain turning the lucky 8, we'll give out bonus points if the number 8 is included in your birthday greetings.
There will be eight winners this year totalling $2,144 in prize.
- 1x 1st Prize: $568
- 2x 2nd Prize: $368
- 5x 3rd Prize: $168
"68" apparently sounds similar to "on the road to prosperity" in Chinese so there you go. The winners can claim either PayPal credit or Coles/Myer or Wish gift cards.
You can submit your entries in the comments below. Make sure you do that before Sunday 30 November 23:59 ADST. Moderators will pick winners, make announcements and send out the prizes the week after. Other rules:
- 1 prize per person but multiple submissions are allowed.
- Content need to be publicly viewable.
