Shopit.com, the social shopping community on the web, is spending $10,000.00 on two of the crappiest gifts received this holiday season.
Members simply add their crappy gifts to their Shopit stores in one of two categories; Ugliest Apparel Item, and Most Useless Item. The Shopit community will then vote on which item they think is the crappiest and the winner of each category will receive $5,000.
Contestants’ gifts will appear everywhere their Shopit store appears, including Shopitâ€™s Flash Store Widgets. Members can also have friends vote for their gifts through their Facebook profiles by adding the Shopit Facebook Application.
The portability of Shopit’s stores allows for maximum visibility of a store’s items, a useful feature for members competing for the most votes from their peers in the Crappy Gift Contest. Anyone is welcome to participate by adding a gift or voting. They simply join the free Shopit community and begin adding items, the crappier the better. Contest ends January 31.
