Have we met? We’re, a site that’s completely devoted to shopping ideas and style inspiration. In short, Beso is a giant shopping search engine but we have a team of editors who are picking through the streams of products to find all the good stuff. And most importantly, we love working with bloggers. We have a technical affiliate publishing program that some of you might already use, but a few weeks ago, we made it much, much more user-friendly, and pushed it front and center. It’s called Beso Rewards, and when you sign up for an account on the site, we automatically turn you into a publisher. When you share your finds from Beso (through the link on the card or any of the share icons), and your friends and followers click, you make money (on average, anywhere from $.14-$.30 a click, with no click paying less than a dime). You can read about it in The New York Times, watch a video about it on CBS News, or find more detailed info right here.

Free Alt Summit Tickets

So what was that about ALT Summit? Beso has 5 full registration packets to give away…and since we know some of you might already have ALT Summit tickets, we’re giving away 2 $250 Amex Gift Cards. Just think of it as your ALT travel stipend. And just by entering, we’ll automatically put $5 in your Beso Rewards account. It’s as easy as that.

To enter, complete the following steps:

1. Register for a Beso account.

2. Search for something you love on Beso, and then share the item. You can do this through a link on your blog, or through any form of social.

3. In the comments section below, drop your Beso account name, and a link to where you shared your item. Also, tell us whether you want to win a gift card or an Alt Summit ticket.

            Sample entry:

I’ll be keeping warm at ALT SLC in this shearling coat, which I shared here: My Beso username is CarolineJ and I’d love to be entered to win a registration package to ALT!          

And if you have any questions about Beso Rewards, or how it works (or how you can get a more detailed view of your analytics), e-mail Elaine Hearn at and she can walk you through the process. The contest will run from November 5, 2012 to November 30, 2012. Winners will be chosen randomly and will be announced on this blog post on December 6, 2012. Official Rules.

  8. Praussie says:

    I’ve never won anything. I won! I won! I am so super psyched about this. My only concern is transportation and hotel. I’ll be flying in from the East Coast.

  9. Praussie says:

    I won, but the cost of airfare and hotel were too high, so winning ticket given away to one very deserving blogger. Hope you all learn a lot to make your business grown and have fun!

  10. Praussie says:

    Feeling very sad since I was the first winner but was afraid to spend the over $1000 for airfare and hotel to attend. So I just GAVE away my ticket since I couldn’t sell it. So I really didn’t win. Just thought it would be really illegal to announce me a winner but I wasn’t really. Sorry. Congratulations to Lauren Mills who I GAVE away ticket to. She’s very excited. She’s the real winner.

  11. Donald says:

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple,
    yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that
    “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome.
    Outstanding Blog!

  12. says:

    Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you penning this
    write-up plus the rest of the site is really good.

  13. Elizabet says:

    I’m really impressed along with your writing talents and also with the
    format in your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it
    your self? Either way stay up the nice high quality writing, it is uncommon to peer a great blog
    like this one nowadays..

  14. It is the best time to make some plans for the future and it’s time to be happy.
    I have read this post and if I could I desire to suggest
    you some interesting things or suggestions.
    Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article.
    I want to read more things about it!
