On of my friends who is also a blogger won a $25 Starbucks Gift Card and only spent $.59 at You Never Lose and she asked me to help tell people about it.
She said this site was seriously, addicting. which is a good disclaimer but one that I think some people may need to hear before I get started. If you have a gambling problem this may not be the site for you. For everyone else - check this out!!
There's a new site in town called YouNeverLose.com and they auction off gift cards to retailers like Amazon, Apple and Wal-Mart at serious discounts - like 90% off retail.
The clear benefit of YouNeverLose.com in contrast to other auction sites (like penny auctions and others) is that instead of buying bids, you buy "lower-level" gift cards (they call them Reward Cards) to retailers like Gap, Staples, Payless and more, and for each Reward Card you buy, you get free points to play in the auctions for the "Dream Cards" to Amazon, Wal-Mart and more.
YouNeverLose.com offers frugal shoppers a way to score some serious discounts without the risk of losing, since for each dollar you spend, you get cash back in Reward Cards sent with free shipping.
I know what you're thinking - do people win?
Well, look right here. I won this $25 Starbucks Gift Card for $.59 with 9 bids. The actual bidding seems to take place the last minute of the auction, and whenever someone places a bid it makes the time jump back up to 20 seconds to go. It's good to know this because as much as you want to snipe it from someone -- they will get the chance to do it right back to you.
I've always been skeptical of penny auction sites. I mean, it sounds too good to be true, but if you think about it each bid is for .01, but it also costs $1. Well, most places it does - here it's just a reward point. You already have your money back in the form of the gift card you just bought. So anything you win on the penny auction side is a bonus.
Now if you win a penny auction you will have to pay the agreed to price you won it for and then $5 to ship. The ones you buy shipping is free, but the ones you win you have to pay to ship.
