It is always a great day when you can get what you need and save big $$$ along the way all while supporting local businesses!
The Spring auction launches on Wednesday, March 15 and runs to Wednesday, March 22. With great deals on exercise equipment, backyard furniture, oil changes, home renos, gift cards for restaurants and more there is something for everyone! Stay tuned to 104.5 More Country and keep an eye on our Facebook Page to find all the great savings you can bid on.
Here are a few tips to help you along the way:
– Registration is super simple. You’ll find the “register” link at the top right-hand corner of the main auction page, or you can click here. Fill out the form and you’re ready to roll.
– The auction uses proxy bidding. This allows you to bid the maximum you are willing to pay for an item, and the system will automatically bid for you until the dollar value is reached. Remember that you will not necessarily pay your maximum bid. Think of it like this. Proxy bidding places bids on your behalf at the lowest possible increments. Simply enter your maximum bid (the highest amount you are willing to pay). The goal of proxy bidding is for you to win the auction at the lowest possible price. Therefore, the current bid will equal the former bid plus the bid increment.
– All the items will sell throughout the day on Wednesday, March 22. If you are following an item, make note of the time it closes. You can do that by using the “sort” function in the top right-hand corner of the auction page. Sort by either “lot number” or “ending soon” and that will display the order that items will close in. It’ll happen quickly with a new item closing every minute!
– There are tons of items so you’re sure to find something you like. You can use the categories list on the right-hand side of the page to quickly find food items, health and beauty products, entertainment offers, and lots more. If your item is getting tons of bids (Pro Tip) take a look through the full list to see if there is a second or even third of that same item which has a lower bid! There are lots of multiple items to choose from.
