ActiveJunky.com makes it easy for the outdoor gear addict to access more than 80,000 different products 100+ affiliate sites and still wind up with a little cash in pocket. They have started a revolutionary way to reward users with a cash back system, making sure you leave happy while curbing spending guilt. ActiveJunky.com now gives its customers up to 20% cash back on everything they buy.
Here’s how it works: you can browse through their data-base of products and compare prices across all of their retail partners, or simply click over to their affiliates, including REI, Backcountry, Sierra Trading Post, Moosejaw, Patagonia and others, to get cash back on everything you buy. You can even access rewards from sites like Backcountry coupons and REI coupons and start accumulating rebates in a “Junky Account,” which you can access via Paypal and cash out every 3 months. The conscientious can even choose to donate their earnings to one of their non-profit partners, like The Nature Conservancy.
They’ve made their system even more revolutionary by creating a full-service community around action sports. Besides deals on gear, they have content on a number of other topics for outdoor enthusiasts – action sports news, adventure travel, gear reviews, original videos and athlete interviews. They want you to feel connected to the community and participate via input and feedback.
In fact, Active Junky is working towards creating a system in which you are rewarded for participating on the site. This includes offering cash back incentives to writing full-length reviews. They also take their approach even further by creating a “social wall” that allows you to talk about outdoor apparel and gear, Facebook-style (you can even see what your friends are buying).
Over the next couple of months, Active Junky plans to release new features that will bring together user reviews and content with the shopping tools and cash-back system already in place.
