SFI’s highly popular online store tripleclicks.com (or simply TC store) has over 90K+ products, a game division, a penny auction division. This makes tripleclicks a desirable destination for all kinds of shoppers, from all around the world. In other words, TC has something for everyone.
In this blog post, I am going to talk about the penny auction division of TC store, which is also known as “Pricebender Auction”.
What is Pricebenders?
Pricebenders is the penny auction division of TC store. It allows you to bid on, and win hot, name brand products, and other SFI business building tools, for a fraction of the retail price – typically more than 90% off – with a minimum savings of 77% off.
If it is a physical auction, then it offers free shipping to US/Canada.
The items that are auctioned are of diverse ranges, from various physical items like laptop, oil diffuser, sandwitch maker, silver bar, silver or gold coins etc, to various digital items like amazon gift cards, TCredits, PSAs, CSAs, PRMs etc.
If you are an SFI affiliate, you can take part in PSA/CSA auctions also (including the all other auctions). And if you are just a tripleclicks member (not an SFI affiliate), you can take part in most auctions.
To place a bid, you need to spend a TCredit. There are various TCredits packs available at TC store, suitable for everyone’s budget. There are also various TCredit auctions running all the time.
How does it work?
Generally, at any moment you will notice 3 or 4 auctions are running. And, as soon as one auction ends, another one starts.
Once you have got (purchased) your TCredits, you are ready to bid in any auction. I suggest to have at least 20 to 50 TCredits in your TC account, before taking part in any auction.
Just click on the “bid now” button on the auction page, to place a bid. With each bid placed, you automatically earn 1 VP and 5 MRPs (10 MRPs for 2x auctions).
Also, with each bid placed, the auction timer resets and start over again. And, with each bid placed, the item price increases by 1 cent.
If you are the final bidder, you win the auction. Then you will be given a link to purchase the item within the next 30 days, at the final auction price.
Also, while the auction is running, you can see whoever is placing bid, by looking at the “open bid log” link, at the right side of the auction page.
You can place bids in as many auctions as you wish.
There are also many junior and micro auctions are available, which are suitable for beginners.
