In order to help encourage the club member participation the club has a reward program we call Auction Bux.

Bux are earned by:
- Attending Club Meetings,
- Writing Articles for the Newsletter (Perf-Dispatch),
- Volunteering at STL Stamp Expo and Stampfest,
- Participating in Philatelic Jeopardy at the Oct Club Meeting, and
- Many others
Auction Bux Auction:
At the November Club Meeting a Special Auction is held where lots of interesting items are auctioned off.
The Auction rules are like normal except that Auction Bux are frequently not equivalent for real dollars. People seeing only 1 item they want may pay crazy amounts of Auction Bux to get it, some prearranged sharing or donating Bux to your friends can often throw wrinkles to your bidding strategy.
The Auction is just for fun so be prepared for some craziness!
