Love Penny Auctions then you will love Pricebender™ from TripleClicks its a live penny auction where items start at $0.01 cent and go up a penny each time someone places a bid! I have seen items go up for sale and won at 80-99% off retail prices (most closer to 95-99% off)

 

** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **

 

Pricebenders™ is a section at TripleClicks.com that features live "penny auctions."

Pricebenders™ Auctions deliver brand new (and, occasionally, refurbished), brand name merchandise, gift cards, and more at prices that are far below typical retail. In fact, prices start at just $.01 (yes, just one cent!). With each bid received, the price increases by just one cent. The final bidder may then buy the item for the ending price (usually a fraction of the normal retail price).

TripleClicks "TCredits" are used for bidding.they come in packs of 1, 10, 20, 50, and 200...(if you are an SFI member there are also 100, 125, and several other packages of TCredits). Note that TCredits can also be used for selling items on TripleClicks, purchasing products, downloading music, and more.

Once you've got your TCredits, you're ready to start bidding. Be the final bidder and you win the item. It's that simple!

Special note: With Pricebenders™, even when you don't win the auction, you still win!...because for every bid, you earn 5 Member Rewards Points (MRP)Sometime 10. MRPs can be redeemed on tens of thousands of different TripleClicks products and services and music downloads.

One more thing: Each Pricebenders™ Auction also includes a Pick-The-Price (PTP) contest.

TIPS FOR WINNING PICK THE PRICE

Bidding/How To Bid

Q: How do I get started?
A: First (if you're not a member already), you'll need to sign up as a TripleClicks member, then head to our FEATURE AUCTION .

Next, you need some TripleClicks "TCredits" to bid with. TCredits are available in paks of 1, 10, 20, 50, and 200...(if you are an SFI member there are also 100, 125, and several other packages of TCredits for sale) for as little as $.29 a piece. Note that TCredits can also be used for selling items on TripleClicks, purchasing products, downloading music, and more .

Once you've got your TCredits, you're ready to start bidding...which is as simple as clicking the "Bid Now!" button on one of our auction pages. Be the final bidder and you win the item. It's that simple!

Special note: With Pricebenders™, even when you don't win the auction, you still win!...because for every bid, you earn 5-10 Rewards Points (MRP)which can be exchanged for real Items in our Store.

Q: How do I know if I'm the high bidder?
A: Each time a bid is received, the auction panel will automatically change to display the User Name of the latest bidder. Note that bids can be coming in rapidly and you may not see your name appear every time you bid. If you just placed a bid and you see someone else's name appear, it probably means that person placed a bid a fraction of a second after you did. You can verify this by viewing the Bid Log located on the Auction Details Page. If you do not see your name on the Bid Log, you could be experiencing technical difficulties and you may wish to contact one of our Customer Care representatives for assistance.

Q: Can I see who is bidding on an auction?
A: Yes, we provide a Bid Log, which lists the most recent 10 bids/bidders. The Bid Log is located on the Auction Details Page. If you are viewing an auction from the TripleClicks homepage, to get to the Auction Details Page, just click on the title of the item being auctioned.

Q: What does "WBF" mean in the Notes column of the Pricebenders Auction Schedule?
A: When you see "WBF" in an auction's Notes column, it means that it will be "Winner Bids Free" auction, and the winning bidder will receive all of his/her bids back upon completion of the auction.

Q: What does "1WA" mean in the Notes column of the Pricebenders Auction Schedule?
A: The term "1WA" in an auction's Notes column indicates a special auction open ONLY to bidders who have never won a Pricebenders auction before.

Q: I click the bid button, but nothing happens. What should I do?
A: Try restarting your Web browser. If that does not resolve it, try restarting your computer. Also, make sure you are using the recommended software and hardware specified below.

Q: What happens to the TCredits I've used in bidding if I don't win the item?
A: Using a TCredit for bidding on a Pricebenders auction means you are spending it, the same as if you used a TCredit for listing something for sale on TripleClicks or buying a song from the store or any of the other actions for which TCredits can be used.

Q: So I used TCredits to bid with, but if I don't win, I get nothing?
A: Even when you don't win the auction, you still win! Because for every bid you place, you earn 5-10 Member Rewards Points (MRP).

Q: Why not just return the TCredits to my account if I don't win?
A: That's simply not feasible. The whole reason that the winning price can be so low--often just a fraction of the retail price--is precisely because TCredits are spent on bidding. That's what pays for the products that are auctioned. Without this, this type of auction is not possible. If you are not comfortable with this type of auction, we recommend that you do not participate. Instead, you can use your TCredits on our many other products and available services.

Q: When does an auction end?
A: An auction ends when the auction clock hits zero (no time left), but the clock resets with each bid received. Hence, there's no way of knowing how long an auction will last. It will go on until only one bidder remains, who, of course, becomes the winner of the auction.

Q: Is there a listing of winners available so I can see the kinds of deals being won?
A: Yes, see our RECENT WINNERS page

Q: You say auctions items are brand new or refurbished. How will I know if it's the latter?
A: If an item is refurbished, it will be clearly stated in its description.

Tips & Strategies For Winning Pricebenders™ Auctions

There seems to be no limit to the number of tips and strategies out there on the Internet about how to win penny auctions and spend the least number of bids to do it. Trouble is, there seems to be little consensus on many matters. Some "experts" recommend using auto-bid tools, others warn against them. Some stress intricate strategy and mathematical accuracy of bid timing and amounts. Others claim that winning is most simply a matter of bidding at the right time.

However, what most DO agree on is that preparing yourself and practicing a few, clear penny auction do's and don'ts could save you a lot of money AND increase your chances of winning. For preparation, read (and re-read if necessary) the "How It Works" article HERE. Then, before placing a bid for a Pricebenders™ auction item, be sure to familiarize yourself with these essential do's and don'ts:

Pricebenders™ Do's

DO...determine a bid budget and stick to it.

DO...watch the auction timer. If the counter almost reaches zero again and again before starting over, it means that there are probably not very many members bidding on that item...and that means your chances of winning are higher.

DO...consider some of the less-expensive items. Generally, fewer people bid on cheaper items and, again, fewer bidders mean your chances of winning are higher.

DO...observe the auctions and list of recently won auction items to determine the best time of day that consistently have the fewest bidders (generally, the lower the winning price, the less bidders there were).

DO...look for Pricebenders auctions designed for new bidders: "1WA" auctions are open only to bidders who have not won a Pricebenders auction before, while "Jr" (Junior) auctions are open to bidders who have won a total of fewer than 9 auctions.

DO...enter the "Pick The Price" contest. Submit the amount you think will be the winning price of any Pricebenders auction. Pick the exact price--or be the closest if no exact picks--and you'll win a share of our daily Zackpot and a nifty badge for your TripleClicks Homepage! Play for just one TCredit per entry/auction. No purchase necessary to win. Plus, each entry earns you 5 Member Rewards Points! Hundreds of chances to win weekly and no win limits.

DO...purchase your TCredits for bids in bulk if you can. In this way, you'll minimize your cost per TCredit (as low as $0.29 each) and ensure you'll have as many as you need to complete an auction. Running out of TCredits at the last moment can be costly...and heartbreaking!

DO...on the Pricebenders Auction page, you can check out the auction item's description page by clicking the item name. In this way, you'll be sure to know EXACTLY what you are bidding on and avoid unpleasant surprises later. You'll also be able to see the bid log listing all bidders for this item. Tip: Click on a bidder's name to see their TripleClicks "TConnect" Webpage to learn more about him or her.

DO...use Pricebender's Bid Assist with care! This useful tool--located in the sidebar--can ensure your bids are entered automatically, so you won't have to stand by monitoring an auction...but it should be used carefully and with your budget in mind.

Tip: Let's say you think an item's final price is going to be $5.75. A smart auto-bid might be to set up, say, 10 TCredits for between $5.50 and $6.00. Of course, keep in mind that if the price never reaches $5.50, none of your bids will be placed. Conversely, if the price goes beyond $6.00, someone else may win the auction after your ten TCredits have been automatically bid.

NOTE: Some auctions don't allow bid assist--see the Auction Schedule for details.

>DO...watch for "UP" (Under Performer) auctions on the Auction Schedule. They are historically the easiest auctions to win.

DO...only participate in Bid Dog auctions once you've become familiar with Pricebenders auctions and have won some other types of auctions.

DO...watch the Pricebenders Bonus Bar--a live, realtime progress bar that sits atop each auction--while bidding. If bidding reaches the end of the Bonus Bar, we LOCK IN the price. So, now matter how much higher bidding goes, your purchase price will always be AT LEAST 77% off the MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price)! Of course, if bidding ends before reaching the end of the bar, your savings could be up to 99% off, but you're always guaranteed to save at least 77% off retail on every auction.

DO...participate in flash drawings for FREE TCredits. Just bid at least once in the 5 minutes prior to the drawings (marked by the stars on the Pricebenders Bonus Bar). You'll earn one drawing entry per bid during this 5-minute time period.

DO...read Pricebenders Rules & Policies and be sure you understand the rules and limits for participating in the penny auctions.

Pricebenders™ Don'ts

DON'T...spend more on an auction than you are willing to lose.

DON'T...wait too long to bid. Connectivity issues, computer crashes, latency (network delays), and other factors may interfere with your bid. If you wait till the last few seconds to bid, you're running the risk that your bid won't go through in time. And make sure you understand that when you bid, it just resets the auction clock, so being the last one to bid before the clock hits zero gains you little if anything...and may just keep you from winning if your bid is delayed by one of the afore-mentioned technical issues. If your strategy is to wait until the "last possible moment," we recommend bidding with NO LESS THAN 5 seconds remaining.

DON'T...get overly excited when bidding. You'll be more likely to break your budget and/or use your TCredits up faster than you need to.

DON'T...get in a bidding war with other bidders. If you can, sit back and let others battle and use their TCredits trying to out-bid each other.

DON'T...lose an auction because of a distraction or needing to leave your computer for a moment. Turn on Bid Rescue (located in sidebar) to automatically place a bid for you when needed. Note: For even more peace of mind, you can set Bid Rescue to ON by default for all auctions you participate in.

Read all the FAQs so you're familiar with how Pricebender™ auctions work before you begin bidding.

- Observe auction activity for a while before jumping in.

- Before starting to bid on an item, determine your "bid budget" and then stick to it.

- Make sure you have purchased as many TCredits as you'll need for bidding. Running out of TCredits at the last moment could be costly!

- Watch the auction timer. If the counter almost reaches zero again and again before starting over, it means that there are probably not too many users bidding on that item.

- Fewer people generally bid on cheaper items. These auctions therefore give you your best opportunity for winning.

- Use the Auto-Bidder with care. It can be an effective and powerful tool for winning auctions, but make sure you employ a sound plan when using it.

- Timing is the key to winning.
