bidorbuy is 16!


bidorbuy birthday

This competition is now over. Congratulations to the winners and a big thank you to everybody who participated!

Take part in the celebrations.

Include the hashtag #bidorbuy16 into your posts on social platforms and you may win your share of R16,000.

Unlike your typical teenager, a website at 16 is mature, confident, considered, responsible, reasonable…

At least, is.

However, that does not mean that your favourite online shopping spot has lost its taste for fun. On the contrary. At the ripe age of 16, bidorbuy is as fun loving as bidorbuy of yore, if not even more! (Proof: we even rhyme.)

Being generous to boot, we want to share this 16th birthday celebration with the most important people in bidorbuy’s life: you. And when we say you, we mean all of you: buyers, sellers, and visitors too.

This is how you can join the celebration, plus stand a chance to win your share of R16,000:

Post your favourite bidorbuy moment on our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram page. It can be a couple of sentences, a short poem, a video, photograph, drawing… and always include this hashtag: #bidorbuy16.

This is how we will reward you:

Every (working) day for two weeks we will look for the hashtag #bidorbuy16, choose our favourite and give the author a R1000 bobBucks voucher.

And this is how we will reward you some more:

Every now and then, when feeling extra generous, we will throw in consolation prizes. Twelve R500 bobBucks vouchers will be scattered on bidorbuy’s Facebook, Twitter and or Instagram. The first to see it and claim it, wins it. (Tip: time is of vital importance, so register on bidorbuy before you start the hunt!)

Total prize pool is R16,000, and you can win more than once. Just post diligently!
