I so want to join this Bidazzled. But it’s for USA only..huhu! Launched in early November, Bidazzled.com is making a difference in the online auction market by offering savings of up to 90% on brand name merchandise while funding a charity (over 70% of profits go to charity).
Commonly called Penny Auctions or Pay-Per-Bid auction sites, bids are purchased in advance and then used to bid on merchandise. Bids cost $1 at Bidazzled and are available for purchase in bid packs for as low as $25. You will also receive bonus bids when you purchase a bid pack.
The price increases a few cents with each bid placed and a few seconds are added to the countdown clock to give others a chance to bid. The auction ends when no other bids are placed. So if a new laptop ends at just a dollar, then you win the laptop for a dollar!
In the spirit of giving during this festive season, it’s also good to know that Bidazzled was created to fund a charity.
In late 2008, James Francis Ruch lost a courageous battle with small cell lung cancer at the young age of 56. His wish was to create an organization that provided information on global treatment options, education and smoking cessation programs.
The disease took James before his time. So with help from friends and family, The Jimmy Ruch Fund was born the day after his passing and is run by his family. Bidazzled was created by a group of Jimmyâ€™s friends to fund that charity and has been in development since November of 2008.
The best part to know when you are in the run for winning any bid of your choice, the auction winners usually will get to save over 80% off retail price.
For example, a LEGO Duplo 5380 Building Set – 71 Pieces is currently on auction and the highest bidding price as of now is $0.20 excluding delivery whereas the retail price for such set is $34.95.
(I know my son would love the Lego set and so does his mom who could save so much with such price..isk!)
