Do you like buying gift cards for presents? I was just introduced to a new type of auction site… where you NEVER lose! Really! YouNeverLose.com auctions off gift cards to retailers like Amazon, Apple and Wal-Mart at serious discounts – like 90% off retail. What’s different about this auction site, in contrast to other auction sites, is that instead of buying bids, you buy “lower-level” gift cards (they call them Reward Cards) to retailers like Gap, Staples, Payless and more. For each Reward Card you buy, you get free points to play in the auctions for the “Dream Cards” to Amazon, Wal-Mart and more.
|The Auctions…who is ready to bid?|
At first I thought…”Oh great…another penny site auction.” BUT NO… you really won’t lose your money! If you are going to buy a gift card, why not use the FREE points to play in the auctions? Sounds like fun to me! Who knows…I might actually win an auction and snag a gift card for super cheap!
Now, like any auction site…there is a trick. Sometimes it is all about the LUCK, but before you bid you will want to have a strategy ~ How much are you willing to bid? Do you have enough “credits” in your account? Take a moment and watch how an auction is played before jumping in.
Here is how I played… first I took a look at the auctions and decided which one(s) I thought I would like to win. Well, the Target & Amazon auctions caught my eye! I decided to start bidding on the Target Gift Card. Now here is where it gets tricky. When the timer gets down to 20 seconds and someone bids they add 20 seconds. I was waiting for the timer to get to :02 or :01 before I would bid. Now remember…they add 20 seconds to the clock. This allows someone else to bid. If you are lucky they too will wait until the last moment and hopefully they miss the time limit and you WIN. Or they run out of credits!
One trick I figured out is if you open your account you can see all the auctions you are bidding on (see photo above).
I didn’t win the Target Gift Card… but somebody snagged it for only $4.70! WOW! Cool thing is, I didn’t LOSE any MONEY!
