For most of us, owning a Louis Vuitton handbag is just a pipe dream. Owning a piece of jewelry from Tiffany & Co.? *sigh* just for window shopping. But a new penny auction website has launched that can make those dreams closer than you think.
ScoreLuxe, a luxury penny auction, has gift cards to places like Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom…even for SpaFinder and Sephora all up for bidding. The best part is that because this is a penny auction, if you win, you have the chance to get up to 95% off retail!
So here’s how it works: Sign up for a free ScoreLuxe account, purchase a bid package (they start at about $29), each bid costs .99 cents. (You can buy bid packs up to 500 bids.) After you buy a bid pack, bids are then credited to your account, so if you buy a 30 bid pack for $29 you then have 30 bids in your account, or the ability to click the bid button 30 times. When you click the bid button, up to 30 seconds is added to the auction timer and the price increases by $.01. After the auction, you then have to pay the final auction price, in addition to any bids you used.
I am a visual person, so here is a look at a past SpaFinder auction where the winner only had to pay $3.19 for a $100 gift card! SpaFinder at ScoreLuxe.
And just in case you are wondering, ScoreLuxe has an authenticity guarantee and they also offer free shipping. You also have to be 18 years or older to sign up and there is a limit to 4 auctions won per month to ensure fairness and give everyone a chance to win. There areÂ to 5 auctions daily, all of which are promoted in advance so that you know the great items coming up for bid.
