I'm now earning Bench Bucks, but what can I get for them???

The answer to that question is in the Bench Bucks Store (http://www.thebenchtrading.com/vbshop.php). Setup is now complete and the initial inventory has been loaded with much more to come.
To navigate to the store, click on the "Bench Tools" drop down and the last option in Bench Bucks Store.

On the left side of the screen you will see your "wallet" with the amount of Bucks you have earned.
The center of the screen contains the actual store with tabs on top for the categories.

When you redeem your Bucks the amount redeemed will be deducted from your Bucks total.


Thanks,

Where do the cards that are in the store come from? Do you want anybody to donate cards to the store? I have stuff lying around that I can donate if you need me to.

The cards currently loaded are from past box breaks when Panini was sending us product to review. But ever since we discovered that the person doing the reviews was selling the big hits for his personal gain and we reported it to Panini, we were cut off and never given another chance to do reviews.

I'm not looking for donations as this is something I would like to give back to the membership. I already have the mod team sending some stuff to add. I'll pick up some stuff from time to time to keep adding to the inventory. All redemptions will be handled by me.

I may have missed it if it was posted, but how else besides posting do we earn Bench Bucks? Thanks.

I've been watching my bucks trying to figure out the same thing, I think trades count too but I could be wrong.

If you click on transactions on the yellow tool bar it will show each bench buck point you earned-I just earned 1.0 points for posting this.

1.0 points for posting to a thread
2.0 points for creating a thread
2.0 points for any replies to a thread you created
5.0 points for uploading a pic to a album you created

So since Pete (champs96ws) created this thread he just earned 2.0 points

Hope this helps

Best,
David

I purchased a Sonny Gray Bowman Sterling Jersey card with my Bench Bucks almost a week ago-It was placed in my cart and when i go to click on the checkout tab it shows nothing did i checkout ? and the card is on the way are we supposed to receive a confirmation of some sort-also shouldn't i have filled out a name/address form ? also when i click on the bench store tab it shows the Sonny Gray Jersey already owned/in cart which since it still says in cart i am wondering did i check out? Also the points were deducted from my total

Best,
David

I get a PM when someone redeems a prize. I will create a "Free card" trade in TM so that I get your address to mail the card.

I have you order, just need to get around to packing it up.

I use gmail and i never got a message in my primary mail-It may have been sent into my spam mail i never open that mail folder i just delete it all w/o opening it-So if it went in my Spam folder its long been deleted...was i supposed to respond to the email? maybe that's why i haven't received it yet...hopefully Pete can email me another one.

I made a purchase Sonny Gray GU i checked out and kept thinking did i do this right-So after a week i messaged Pete and he told me he receives a an email when a purchase is made-A few days later the transaction was posted in the trade manager under receiving free cards about 5 days later the Sonny Gray GU i purchased came the mail-I also purchased a $10 ebay gift card but nothing posted yet and it's been several weeks-Not sure if Pete got the email or not as i could have but it went into my spam folder and i was supposed to respond to it but it went and got deleted.

Did you get an email ? it may be a computer generated one where it could be in your junk mail-I had no clue we even received an email i found out last night when David K asked me the same question.

When the program first started, there were some bugs to work out some features were not working 100%.

I'll have to check on it.

I noticed it was said you cannot transfer bucks however when you click on another users bench bucks it says initiate transfer and asks how much. Was this added or perhaps it just wont work anyway? Thanks.

Dennis,

I did see a purchase for the card but I think you deleted it from your "inventory" before I even saw the purchase PM. So I had no clue who it was suppose to go to.

I'll get that out ASAP.



*** ANYONE WHO REDEEMS SOMETHING FROM THE STORE ****

I PROCESS THE ORDERS SO GIVE ME A FEW DAYS ONCE YOU PLACE THE ORDER.
IF YOU DON'T GET A PM FROM ME OR A POSTED FREE CARD TRADE, THEN DROP ME A MESSAGE.

No hurries, I was wandering if I did something wrong or not being the first time I had tried it.
