Members Can Now Collect, Share, Influence and Shop While Earning Points (PTZ) for Major Discounts on Fashion, Beauty, Home Décor, Electronics and Entertainment
SEATTLE—February 6, 2012— Lockerz, the leader in rewarded social commerce, today introduced its new self-expression platform, where members create and share Collections of images and videos (Decalz) from anywhere on the Web. Unlike other sharing platforms, Lockerz is the only site that rewards its members for engagement. Lockerz members earn PTZ for nearly everything they do on the site, which are used to get the lowest prices on hundreds of products offered in the Lockerz Store. Since its inception, Lockerz members have used nearly 3 billion PTZ for millions of dollars of savings on the most sought-after fashion, beauty and electronics brands.
“Lockerz is about revolutionizing the way the world discovers and consumes product and content,” said Kathy Savitt, founder and CEO of Lockerz. “Collecting and sharing online is changing the way people search, discover, organize, and decide what to buy. Rewarding these activities, as well as members’ influence and following, is where the new Lockerz experience comes in.”
Collections and Decalz Collections are created by “grabbing” images and videos from almost any website, which become Decalz. Videos can be grabbed from thousands of sites including Hulu, Vimeo, MTV, VH1, Funny or Die, Comedy Central, CollegeHumor, YouTube and more. Members share their Collections with other users and through social networks. Users can also grab Decalz from existing Collections to create their own, which in turn rewards the original creator with PTZ.
Collections are organized into 21 categories, such as Fashion, Love & Dating, Cuteness, Art & Design, and Pets & Animals, to name a few. Over time, Lockerz will continue to add new ways to earn PTZ throughout this experience. As always, Lockerz members also earn PTZ by answering “Dailies” (witty and provocative one-question polls), watching videos, uploading photos, inviting friends or just logging in.
The PTZ Payoff What to do with all those PTZ? The Lockerz Store has 7 for All Mankind, James Jeans, Ella Moss, Splendid, Michael Stars, Theodora & Callum, Alex & Ani, Jules Smith, CC Skye, Xbox 360, Nintendo, SkullCandy, Canon, Olympus, and many more, available at the lowest prices online for current, in-season merchandise.
