Each event benefits a specific charity, engaging supporters and generating funds to help their causes.

-Excerpt taken off

I’ve never heard of penny auction sites before gave the opportunity of reviewing their site and what they do. It is quite interesting if I may say so. What I like most about is that each event is linked to a non-profit charity like the Boys & Girls Club, Keep America Beautiful, National Breast Cancer. These charities change so you have to make sure to check regularly. Besides the items up for auction are not a random item, we are talking iPads, iRobot Roomba, Keurig Coffee Makers. They offer cool gadgets…and I so would love to have the iRobot Roomba!!


So, how does it work?

  1. Buy Tokens. Sign up and receive 3 free tokens. You can always purchase as many as you need.
  2. Pick an Event. Use the tokens to help the charity you prefer.
    • Raise the Price. Events start at a sale price  as low as 90% off the estimated value. ‘Raise’ the sale price to become the leader. When the event has come to an end the Leader will  be able to buy the item at the final sale price.
    • Be Unique. Your goal is to offer the lowest price  that is unique (does not match any others). The person with the lowest unique offer wen the maximum number of offers or end date has been reached is able to buy the item at that price, generally at huge savings.
    • Reveal the Price. At the beginning of this event the price is ‘hidden’. Click ‘Reveal’ (which uses tokens) to see the price for 3 minutes. Every time someone click reveal the price gets lower and they may buy the item. Only one person can buy the item at that price , so make sure not to wait to long!
  3. Participate and win!


As I type this post I am participating in two events! I really like the Be Unique events. Trying to figure out a number that nobody else will have guessed or will guess is fun! I am going for the iPads….they simply look so fun! And the charities these items are helping are Keep America Beautiful and Off The Mat Into the World.
