Have you heard about Bidazzled? I just did and I thought it was interesting enough to tell others about it. This is an online auction site that was launched in November, and it is quite different from the ones I've seen and used before.
For one thing, with Bidazzled, you don't simply place large bids and win a prize - and then it's yours. What you do is purchase bids in advance and then those bids are used, a few cents at a time, to hopefully win the item you're trying to get. The bids are placed every few seconds so that others get a chance to bid. When the bidding ends, so does the auction. It doesn't matter how large or small the item is - you could end up paying as much as 90% less than you would expect to pay, though 80% is probably more realistic.
As I'm looking at the site right now, I see that there is a Samsung 32 inch LCD HDTV up for grabs as well as many other brand name entertainment items.
When you register, you get 5 free bids. Two people have actually won Nintendo Wii's with free bids, so you never know where it'll get you.
As interesting as all of this is, though, is the fact that over 70% of the profits Bidazzled makes goes to fund lung cancer research. This touches home for me because my uncle died of lung cancer and, just this month, my husband's aunt died of lung cancer. I'd love to see a cure.
If you check out Bidazzled and decide you want to sign up - before January 15 - use the code BBP 1202A and you'll get an additional 15 free bids. If you want to earn even more bonus points, there is a viral referral plan that can net you quite a few.
