Sure, eBay was fun when it first came out, but its novelty has since worn off and has become more of an everyday website to purchase goods from. The excitement, for most, is gone. There are a few auction websites popping up here and there, but none offer the thrill that was evident when eBay was first launched.
One website that is changing the way we think about auction websites is Oodlesbid.com. Instead of trying to win a shirt, Furby, or something monotonous, you will be bidding for luxury items of all sorts on Oodlesbid. For example, they are offering a free bid on an 55″ LG 1080p Smart 3D HDTV. If you are interested in bidding on this TV, there are a few things you should know about the new auction style that Oodlesbid brings to the table.
When you find an item you would like to bid on, make sure you sign in to your account or sign up for one. Then you must pay the buy-in amount, which will give you a certain amount of bids to use throughout the auction. Buy-ins cost significantly less than the item being auctioned off, for example there is an automotive auction taking place where you can pick between a Dodge Challenger, Chevy Camaro, and a Ford Mustang. Each of these cars cost around $45,000, but the buy-in is only $50. The auction itself will not start until the prerequisite amount of auction participants buy in to the auction. Once the auction starts, you will be using your limited amount of bids to try and hold the winning bid when time runs out. It takes skill, and it takes patience, but it all pays off in the end.
