"Digg for Deals" Up for Sale on eBay

trezrlogo.pngDeal site Trezr is yet another eBay exit for a website (here). The site is like Digg for frugal shoppers looking for deals, coupons, and tips on how to save money. Users submit tips to the site, which other users can vote up in importance.

Trezr has a rather clever way of making money, by monetizing outbound links through affiliate programs with Commission Junction, Linkshare, Amazon, and Performics. However, the site hasn’t generated significant traffic since launch at the end of last year. The owners are claiming 4,000 visits per month and there doesn’t appear to be a solid community to grow out from as Digg did with Slashdot. The site also doesn’t offer any rewards for users like Fatwallet’s cash back rewards.

Other companies taking eBay exits were SynapseLife (now Down2Night), Kiko (now Justin.tv), and RSS Calendar.
