Would you like to have an iPhone? But cannot shell out $499 or don’t want to stand in line? Bidwarslive.com is allowing people to get an iPhone without waiting in line and without the massive price tag. Bidwarslive.com is auctioning 4 Apple iPhones in July. But they don’t go to the highest bidder! The iPhone will go to the lowest “unique” bid – that is the bid that is lower than all others and is the only one to bid that amount. An iPhone will be auctioned off every week in July, with auctions ending on July 7th, July 14th, July 21st, and July 28th. The iPhone requires a two year contract with AT&T, the only U.S. network the iPhone will work on.
So far nothing on Bidwarslive.com has sold for more than US$15, and the owners say the iPhone will go for even less.
Members pay $15 a month for 25 bids a day (or $25/month for 50 bids/day). Those bids can be used on any one of the prizes on auction. Current items include a 20” wide screen LCD Monitor, Xbox 360, and a $1500 Vacation to anywhere you choose.
Plus, there’s a nice social entrepreneurship aspect – whatever the small price the winner pays will be given to a charity of your choosing. Winners choose between the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer, Livestrong, American Red Cross, and the Boys and Girls Club of America.
So go ahead! make your bids for the iPhone or any other of the other stuff on Sale. If you win, you’ll be sure to get it cheap!
