Shoppers can already share searches with their social networks, but now is making it rewarding to do so with their new SHOPstar networking program. Members of the program get a little kickback when they refer sales.

Let’s say you’ve come across the perfect snuggie for the LSU and you use a unique URL to Tweet it out to all of your friends – you’ll get a little commission on the sales that come in.

Launched right at the heart of the holiday shopping season, hopes to develop a few new shopping habits at a critical time.

“With SHOP.COM’s new community enhancements and the SHOPstar program, we hope to harness the power of social media and help shoppers with their purchasing decisions in a relevant way,” said Mondy Beller, senior vice president of marketing for SHOP.COM.

Happy shopping and sharing!
