First of all I don't criticize admins about their choice for each reward's cost. But I just want to make some suggestions.
Anyway let's go back to the topic. It's simple math:
Each T-Shirt's value for 1000 Xper, is $15.
Each Amazon Gift Card's value for 7000 Xper, is $20.
So if someone buys 7 T-shirts, then total value would be $105. I don't think most people are interested in T-Shirts but if someone made this thought as I did...he/she could actually have more profit if he/she bought shirts. He/she could buy 7 of them, and sell them (to a flea market for example) for $5 each. I believe they could buy them at such a price, since they are brand new, and buyer could have a profit as well,if he tries to sell them afterwards.
Most GAGers are Americans, and there is a good amount of Canadians as well, so this patern might work for most people here. Which will lead to a loss for GAG. Also many people complain about the increase of minimum Xper for Amazon Cards. It started from 2000 Xper and now it's 7000. So I believe a more "fair" cost for both sides would be about 4000-5000 Xper for Amazon Cards and 1500-2000 for T-Shirts. Keeping the "2 rewards per month" is a good idea though. This way Xper hunting has been toned down by a good degree. After all judging from the chart with top GAGers per month, I notice almost nobody gets 10000 Xper per month. So a cost between 4000-5000 Xper perhaps would be ideal for everyone.
Donation Box and Charity Organisation.
A Donation Box is actually a good idea to increase GAG's profit. I believe there are many GAGers (especially among older members here), who love GAG and they consider this site their "child". Others more others less. So I believe they could donate some of their money to keep this site going. Without receiving any rewards, just because of their love for this site.
Also there's an amount of certain GAGers who prefer to cash in their Xper for charity. After the option for cashing in your points to Raven, I'm afraid many lost interest. Hope we can see another charity organisation in the future.
So what's your suggestions and opinions about it dear admins and GAG members?
