Boffer Tshirt Giveaway To Celebrate First Birthday
Monday, 10 August 2009
Boffer.co.uk is giving away 10,000 free t-shirts to celebrate its first birthday.
The discount etailer - which sells one heavily discounted product a day - will launch the exciting giveaway at 0001 hours on August 16.
Boffer has been an outstanding success since its launch a year ago. It now boasts 80,000 registered members and is the 1500th busiest site in the UK.
Products regularly sold on the site - which receives 30,000 hits every evening - include laptops, iPods, digital cameras and LCD televisions.
The site is backed by Scots entrepreneur Shaf Rasul.
He said: "Boffer is a great concept that has captured the imagination of the internet community through its diverse product range and discount prices.
"Since the launch a year ago the business has developed valuable supply partnerships which have allowed it to develop the quality and volume of its product range even further to offer its eighty thousand members fantastic cut price deals.
"The business also has access to large amounts of non-technology related stock which has given it the opportunity to expand the Boffer portfolio through a dedicated private members shopping club Bigoffers.
"The next twelve months will be just as exciting as we continue to develop the consumer experience for our loyal and price-conscious customer base."
Rasul - who stars in an online version of the BBC's Dragons Den alongside American Julie Meyer - added that Boffer has recently been listed in the Urban Dictionary which is a web-based dictionary of slang words and phrases.
The site - which contains over four million definitions - describes Boffer as a person that uses or buys items from the website boffer.co.uk.
"Boffer has generated a lot of excitement in the online community and it's great that the popular appeal of the business has been recognised in the Urban Dictionary," Rasul said.
"Consumers trends show that people are now avoiding the high street and doing their shopping online in a bid to tackle the effects of the credit crunch.
"We offer high-street products at a fraction of the high-street price and people looking for a better deal should make Boffer their number one online shopping site."
