Just a quick update on the latest uTest Bug Battle. We’re six days into the competition, which as you know, is comparing three of the top specialty e-tailers in the universe. That would be eBay, Overstock and Zappos.
With just under five days remaining, we’ve already had more than 400 testers participate and well over 600 bugs reported. These are obviously great numbers, but it’s a little interesting to see that eBay trails the other two sites in terms of overall participants. (Hint, hint: if you want to increase your odds of winning some prize money, start testing eBay!). You didn’t hear it from me though.
Remember, the Bug Battle ends Monday, November 8th at noon ET, and there is nearly $4,000 in prize money up for grabs. It’s not too late to win the top prize, so log into your uTest account and get cracking. No more excuses!
For a primer on how to win the Bug Battle – especially the usability part of the competition that gets started next week – we highly recommend this post by Santhosh Tuppad, as well as this post by Anna Danchenko. You can also find tips in the uTest Forums.
Good luck the rest of the way!
