- (1888PressRelease) August 14, 2010 - SwipeBids, a new but growing penny auction site, gave away a Honda Civic and other bonus prizes worth more than $25,000 to its most dedicated players in June, the company announced yesterday.
"We believe that at the heart of any business is the need to create loyal customers," Adam, a SwipeBids representative said. "We believe a great way to do that is to reward the people who participate the most in our auctions - whether they win or lose. It's our way of giving back to the members who support us and helps create brand loyalty."
SwipeBids.com is a penny auction site founded earlier this year. Under the SwipeBids system people purchase memberships and are given a certain number of bids. They can also purchase more bids. Every time they place a bid on a given auction, the price goes up by a penny and more time is put on the clock. The last person to place a bid then purchases the product for the final price. For example, some players have been able to buy MacBooks for as little as $50 at the end of an auction.
To further entice people to bid SwipeBids has created hourly, daily and monthly contests where the people who are most active get additional prizes.
On June 30 a player who participates under the name "Tryagain2" won a brand new Honda Civic valued at more than $16,000 in the monthly contest. In the weeks leading up to the contest he had won many individual auctions saving money on a Nintendo Wii, a Play Station 3, an HP IPAQs, a Sony Cybershot Digital Camera, a Sony Bravia Theater System, a Nintendo DSi, a Coby Portable DVD Player, a Sony PSP, an Aluratek Personal Media Player and a MacBook.
The San Antonio man, who asked that his name not be used, expressed his excitement over winning the top prize and has plans to continue to shop for his favorite brands using SwipeBids.
A total of 10 people were awarded a variety of prizes on June 30 for the monthly contest. Those prizes included high-end consumer goods including flat screen televisions, high-end cameras and videogame systems.
This is the second month in a row that SwipeBids has awarded a car to a star player and they expect to continue the promotion into the foreseeable future.
"The program is very popular with our members, so we see no reason to stop it now," the company representative said. "When you have a promotion that works, you stick with it."
