    Looks like this website just launched. They actually give you pretty good deals for bids. Hopefully they don't have that many users yet.

    Just sharing my insomnia late night browsing website of the night.

    I saw a flyer for this on campus today. Not really sure if the site is legit or not.

    Looks like bids go up in 10 cent increments and they charge you 50 cents for each bid.

    I've seen better terms on a cruise ship slot machine.

    This has the makings of a scam. They put up their own items, then outbid you, while charging you for your bids. At the end you don't get the item either.

    I just saw that it has an iPod touch and Nintendo Wii tonight. I also got an email from them saying that if you put "hawkeyes" as a coupon code, you get free bids. I've only won at gift card and I received it so I think it's legit. Check it out, it's actually pretty fun haha.

    Kind of weird to be promoting your own scam website and not even including a link...

    I watched the site for awhile and it is a HUGE SCAM.. like they said it before, they put up their items, they can get a pic of an ipod touch online, set up a computer program to out bid any bid, they make up different user names so it doesn't look like the same person is winning everything and they win their own, "prizes" then put up another "prize". Its genius if you think about it, if i was a betting man I'd say the professor was someone behind it and also that theyve actually never had anyone other than themselves win anything.
