ITS AN "AUCTION" ............almost................

IPADS FOR UNDER $100  LAPTOPS FOR $50  $100 GC for $3  yep it is TRUE.................BUT

OK BE CAREFUL BE VERY VERY CAREFUL WITH THIS ONE
I say this because I accidentally got in this one and before I knew it I was buying $60 in credits
which was 100 credits as a "bonus" buy............. I didn't realize WHAT I had bought............
or how to use it..............it doesn't work like the other "auctions" I had been accustomed to........
so again I say BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND READ THE 101

#1  GO HERE to join and when you do I will get 25 credits for your doing so
#2   READ READ READ READ  the Q101 section is invaluable
#3   Have fun and don't lose your money!  :)

$50 Walmart Gift Card ($50 Walmart) Date Purchased: 01/26/2011 08:56
BUY IT NOW PURCHASE
$32.00
$50.00
Processed  

Note these are ALL GIFT CARDS and ALL for stores that I shop in.
Note the last one of the list was a "buy it now" purchase  a $50 card for $32 Plus $1.99 handling
.
EACH WIN WILL COST YOU $1.99 process/S&H  fee PLUS the cost of the auction

So I spent $60 for the BIDDING OPPORTUNITIES
and $2.00 for each of the auctions above x4  = $8
plus the cost of the purchases  43cents
and then the buy it now cost of $34 (with S&H)

TOTAL OUT OF POCKET $102
Total value:   $110 in Gift Cards  so I am ahead by 8 which doesn't seem like a lot right?
well I messed up............... I didn't READ THE 101 before I started and blew over 1/2 of my bids
just trying to stumble through it .

THE GOOD NEWS.....................  I have been observing others getting much much better deals
and hopefully I will join those ranks once I learn the ins and outs and have read everything
I hope to get a "killer" deal or two soon...................what I did above was a "learning curve" and will be great because I already spend / shop in these stores so nothing is lost and I will be able to stretch those dollars out well.

Did I mention that I have already rec'vd my cards? they are very quick to get them to you and I will be taking my walmart cards to grocery shop for 2 weeks worth this week to restock my "meat" department.   I think I can also use these at sams?  dunno but I am going to check! :)

Have fun and if you learn a tip or trick ................let me know! :)
