I just received a brand new, still-in-package “The Dark Knight RisesBlu-ray movie from Pricebenders Penny Auctions and not only did they pay the shipping, but they also gave me $13.07 value in more bidding credits!

My cost to win the auction was just $1.43 total. In return, they gave me the movie (with free shipping) plus 50 bidding credits (worth at least $14.50). This kind of deal hasn’t happened to me often, but man, when it does, oh, what a feeling! Here’s the breakdown of what happened.

First, I am a member of TripleClicks.com, the site that hosts Pricebenders Penny Auctions, and I participate in the auctions regularly. In order to bid on the auctions, you need to buy bidding credits in advance. Bidding credits are called “TCredits” and they are used for a variety of things in addition to bidding on the auctions. …

You can purchase TCredits in various pack sizes. I buy my TCredits in 200 Paks and pay just .29 per credit. You use one credit per bid in the auctions.

Every auction starts at zero cents and goes up by one penny for every bid that is placed. There is a timer that starts counting down when the auction starts, and every time a member places a bid the timer resets and starts counting down again. When the timer reaches zero without a new bid being placed, the last person to bid wins the item.

Once confirmed, the winning bidder will be advised by email and will be given instructions on how to pay for the item. Their total cost is whatever the closing bid amount was, plus the value of the TCredits they used in that auction. There is no cost for shipping. So, when they pay for the item, they pay only the amount of the closing bid.

The Dark Knight Rises: 27 cents

Marlow Stern of Newsweek called this movie “A monumental conclusion to the epic trilogy.

Pricebenders Penny AuctionsI happened to be watching the Pricebenders auctions one day when “The Dark Knight Rises” Blu-ray came up. But it wasn’t just the movie being auctioned: the winner would also receive 50 TCredits!

I was in the right place at the right time and had to place just four bids to win the auction. The ending price was 27 cents.

So, that means I paid 27 cents and four TCredits (4 x .29 = $1.16) to win a brand new Blu-ray movie plus 50 more TCredits (50 x .29 = $14.50)!

When you subtract the cost of the win from the value of the 50 TCredits received, I come out ahead by $13.07! And … Pricebenders paid to ship the movie to me!

Basically, Pricebenders paid me $13.07 to take a new movie off their hands. I love it!

I haven’t had time to watch the movie yet, but I know I am going to enjoy it because it includes several actors I like, including Gary Oldman, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Christian Bale and Anne Hathaway are pretty good, too.

Anyway, this isn’t the only thing I have won cheaply on Pricebenders; it’s just the most recent. Also, not every auction goes this cheap, but many items do.

Really, you should check out the auction items for yourself. Some items that come up regularly are: the Apple iPad and iPad Mini; other popular tablets and electronic devices; small appliances and home electronics; gold coins; silver bars; radio controlled helicopters (with video camera); and many more items.

Check out these items at Pricebenders Penny Auctions and while you are there, check out the list of previous winners: you will see many items won for just pennies on the dollar … and many items won for LESS than a dollar!

Enough of that. Just go and do it. I’ve got a date with the Dark Knight!
