You Always Win With This New Auction Site

December 30th, 2011

If you’ve ever used a penny auction site to try and get high-end merchandise for just a few pennies, you know how addicting it can be.  The thrill of being the top bidder when the clock hits zero makes you feel like you’ve just one the lottery.  Only you didn’t win the lottery, and you had to spend money on each bid to become the highest bidder.  Sure, you may have won something at a great discount, but the money spent on each bid adds up.

When I first learned about penny auctions I jumped in and spent roughly $100 on bids.  Three hours later I was out of bids and had absolutely nothing to show for it.  I might as well have just sent the website a check for $100.  I realized the chances of me winning something were pretty slim, so I quit and haven’t played since.  That is, until I heard about YouNeverLose.com.

The difference between YouNeverLose and other penny auction sites is that they give you a gift card that’s equal to the amount you spend on bids.  So if you spend $50 on bids, they will automatically send you a $50 gift card.  You even get to choose the gift card from options like Restaurant.com, Sears, Gap, Nike, Staples, and more.  They don’t have actual items in the auctions, only gift cards, but the bidding process is similar to every other auction site.  When you place a bid on a gift card, the price goes up by 1 penny and, if there are less than 2 minutes left, the time increases by 20 seconds.  If you have the last bid when the countdown hits zero, you’ve won the gift card for the current price.  They have a description video that does a pretty good job explaining how it works, check it out below.



I’ve been playing on YouNeverLose for about two days now, and although I still haven’t won an auction, I feel much better about buying bids.  If I can get a gift card to a store I know I’m going to shop at anyway, there’s really no reason not to buy bids and play in the auctions.  If you’re the kind of person who enjoys the rush of time-sensitive bidding, then you definitely want to check this new site out.

If you’ve tried this new penny auction site out, what do you think?  Will it forever change the penny auction industry?

    i actually won one of the auctions about 5 days ago. (caveat – just received the original giftcard that i purchased, not the “auction” giftcard that i won) – but since i received the first one, i expect the other will be here pretty soon.
