WHAT IS PRICEBENDERS?
PRICEBENDERS™ Penny Auctions
(a division of TripleClicks) allow you to bid on and win hot, name brand products, including PSAs, CSAs, S-Builder Co-op units, and other SFI "business-builder" tools, for a fraction of the retail price--typically more than 90% off--with a MINIMUM savings of 77% off (excluding cost of bids, if any) and FREE SHIPPING to US/Canada!
Auctions are ongoing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and each one starts at just one cent, with the price going up by just one cent more for each bid placed.
The final bidder may then buy the item for the ending price...OR opt for a TC gift certificate or a quantity of TCredits.

HOW DO AUCTIONS WORK?
First (if you're not a member already), you'll need to sign up as a TripleClicks member . Next, you need some TripleClicks "TCredits" to bid with. TCredits are available in packs of 1, 10, 20, 50, and 200...and for as little as $.29 apiece. SFI Affiliates can also get a special 125 TCredits Standing Order at a discounted price with monthly EA-qualifying 1,500 VP.
Once you've got your TCredits, you're ready to start bidding...which is as simple as clicking the red "Bid!" button for your chosen auction item(s) on our AUCTIONS PAGE.
You can place bids for multiple auctions simultaneously. Be the final bidder and you win the item(s). It's that simple! Check out our latest winners and the incredible deals being won.
MRP AND AVP
Earn MRP and AVP with each bid!
With Pricebenders, even when you don't win the auction, you still win!
That's because for every bid, you earn 1 Action VersaPoint and 5Member Rewards Points (MRP). MRP can be redeemed on different TripleClicks products and services.
Bid & Build for free Personally Sponsored Affiliates (PSA) for your SFI downline!
For every 10 bids you make at Pricebenders, you'll earn a spin of the Bid &Build prize wheel! Every spin is a guaranteed win of a full PSA or a partial PSA. So, even if you don't win a full PSA with one spin, you could win a share of a free PSA that will go toward building a full PSA.

TIPS & STRATEGIES FOR WINNING
DO...determine a bid budget and stick to it.
DO...watch the auction timer. If the counter almost reaches zero again and again before starting over, it means that there are probably not very many members bidding on that item...and that means your chances of winning are higher.
DO...consider some of the less-expensive items. Generally, fewer people bid on cheaper items and, again, fewer bidders mean your chances of winning are higher.
DO...observe the auctions and list of recently won auction items to determine the best time of day that consistently have the fewest bidders (generally, the lower the winning price, the less bidders there were).
DO...purchase your TCredits for bids in bulk if you can. In this way, you'll minimize your cost per TCredit (as low as $0.29 each) and ensure you'll have as many as you need to complete an auction. Running out of TCredits at the last moment can be costly...and heartbreaking!
DO...on the Pricebenders Auction page, you can check out the auction item's description page by clicking the item name.
In this way, you'll be sure to know EXACTLY what you are bidding on and avoid unpleasant surprises later.
You'll also be able to see the bid log listing all bidders for this item. Tip: Click on a bidder's name to see their TripleClicks "TConnect" Webpage to learn more about him or her.
DON'T...spend more on an auction than you are willing to lose.
DON'T...wait too long to bid. Connectivity issues, computer crashes, latency (network delays), and other factors may interfere with your bid. If you wait till the last few seconds to bid, you're running the risk that your bid won't go through in time.
And make sure you understand that when you bid, it just resets the auction clock, so being the last one to bid before the clock hits zero gains you little if anything...and may just keep you from winning if your bid is delayed by one of the afore-mentioned technical issues.
If your strategy is to wait until the "last possible moment," we recommend bidding with NO LESS THAN 5 secondsremaining.
DON'T...get overly excited when bidding. You'll be more likely to break your budget and/or use your TCredits up faster than you need to.
DON'T...get in a bidding war with other bidders. If you can, sit back and let others battle and use their TCredits trying to out-bid each other.
DON'T...lose an auction because of a distraction or needing to leave your computer for a moment.
Turn on Bid Rescue--accessed by clicking the blue tool icon on a live auction item's panel--to automatically place a bid for you when needed. Note: For even more peace of mind, you can set Bid Rescue to ON by default for all auctions you participate in.
