Welcome to Shelflife

SEASON 8: June 1 - June 30, 2013

$500 in prizes

Collector Wars is your ongoing contest and rewards program tied into your Collector Score & Collector Level!

Every month, we provide new challenges to motivate you to help grow our community of global collectors, raising your collector score and earning sweet prizes along the way. Things that'll earn you points range from every-day collecting and curating to referring friends and getting bonuses when they complete sales or catalogs.

Deadline and announcement

Post your best collection photo and get as many points as you can by the end of the month. We'll tally all the points, delete the scammy ones, and announce the winners.

PS: Your Collector Wars score counts towards your all-time score, and your Collector Level, which lead to more prizes, access to exclusives, discounts, and bonuses that we'll be revealing on a monthly basis.

Where's my collector profile?

Get to your Collector Profile by clicking the COLLECT button in the top left corner.

Winners of Grand Prizes can only win again after 3 months.
