    Default Contest: FREE gas cards

    Ok let's hope I don't get banned for this... No main "reason" for this event, just bored.

    What can I say, I got a weak conscience. So the story goes, I realize that I'm a sponsor here which started out as "shits and giggles" as a blog for my automotive niche trade during my return into the auto trade. Then the positive response kinda got out of hand when I started accumulating loyal Beyond customers and their referrals.

    Only problem is that within my trade, I'm a single owner/operator who made it to the professional league (NOT bragging) recongized in an institutional setting. (I fix hail damaged vehicles for "YOUR" insurance companies basically; multiple that by hundreds/thousands of vehicles in an entire town/city, country wide)

    With that said, I'm not one of those people who forgets who they are or where they came from. (you know those companies who's gotten so big that the owner don't give a shit about people anymore; consumers who supported them during their way up)... I still remain a ONE-MAN operator working with other one-person operators and refuse to lower myself and reputation to hire rookies to turn an extra buck as employees. (this does not work in our skill trade, the customer gets screwed with shitty quality; cuz it won't be hard for me to hire a bunch of Beyonders under my company neither)

    After chatting with friends from different industries (oil rigs, auto, office). It made me realize I'm pretty fortune to still be working.

    Sooooooooo... for my 2009 year hotel bonus points for working on the road, instead of cashing them to spend on some dirty girl... I've decided to redeem them for varies vendors (gift cards) and give 'em ALL away on Beyond through different sections and different contest events... Encourage members to participle and proud to be a part of a community. Kinda chessy, but whatever.




    I mean considering I'm not some huge auto shop (I'm just ONE tech)... this is my way of saying "thanks" for those who's supported me in the part and continue to support me in the future... This is my way of keeping up with the big boy sponsors on here hosting huge car shows, inventory discounts, etc... I know some ppl are pretty pissed that even though I bought a warehouse bay for a shop, yet I usually turn down 9.8 out of 10 Beyond jobs , I hope you guys will understand, just like the strippers I look up to, my legs has to follow where the loonies are being tossed; that's road work... That bay is pretty much used by other auto ppl, lol... Turned into a rental property for me, lol.

    Sample entry:



    I know it's in the dark (try to do it in the daytime)... but I'm not entering :d

    So I guessed $30.96
    Actual (on first click) $30.31

    Difference = $0.65

    I dunno, those ideas seem like a lot of effort. Can I just have a free gift card because I'm poor? Puh-lease?

    There's no point in multi-entry, cuz 1 prize per member... so ppl will just be posting their BEST result (from different fills during this month)

    Are you talking about prepaying a set amount ($20, $30), where the pump will automatically stop at those set amounts? If so, then OMFG, Curtis

    If you're talking about prepaying as in swiping your credit card at the pumps, I don't see a difference than paying inside.

    Edit: Yea Tik-Tok is right (it was late last night)... people will be able to judge if you're trying to cheat... So basically try keeping the camera on at all times... Just play it straight up man, you don't want to be known as a scammer or cheater on Beyond.

    It will be easy to tell those cheaters, because the pump always slows down. So even if you preapy $30.21, by the time it's at $30.00, it starts pumping slower than molasses.

    not trying to cheat or anything, but most of the time the diesel pump by my place is prepay inside or pay at the pump, i dont see how it would be "cheating" if i prepaid $40 and it first clicks at $36.00, sure it will slow down but it still hasnt clicked.

    I could be wrong, BUT if you "pay at the pump", it means you're swiping and authorize the gas station to hold your credit card until you're finished with filling up.

    Versus if you specifically prepay exactly $39.52 before "guessing"... then of course your pump will stop and click at exactly $39.52, which isn't being honest from what I'm trying to do here.

    So "fill yourself up accordingly"
