FAQ

How do I get started and how do the auctions work?

In order to participate in our auctions, you will first need to sign up. This is free and usually takes less than 30 seconds.

Each bid raises the auction price of an item by just ONE PENNY. That’s right, just 1 cent!

Be the last to place a bid when the auction closes and you win!

How do I purchase bids?

After you have signed up, just click on “NEXT: SELECT BID PACKAGE”. You can then purchase a Booster Bid Bundle for $25.00 that contains 50 bids. One you have your bids, start bidding to win!

If an organization is sponsoring this site, am I really helping the organization’s fund raiser?

Absolutely! Any organization’s fundraiser receives a very significant portion of the purchase price of each Booster Bid Bundle bought through that organization’s sponsored site or through a site sponsored by an individual to help fund the organization. These Sponsors need your help and this is a fun way to help them out. It is however, the sole responsibility of the sponsor of their site to use any or all of the money paid to the sponsor by Booster Bids in the manner in which they expressed or represented to the prospective users of their sponsored site.

I know that this auction is different because it has much more valuable items for sale (a brand new car, for example), but is it similar to the type of auctions I see advertised nationwide on TV?

Yes! Everyone has seen those ads on TV where people are getting unbelievable deals on great products. This auction is similar to those other auctions, except this one ends “SUDDENLY...RANDOMLY...SUPRISINGLY. That's right...THIS AUCTION ENDS AT ANYTIME.” That means every bid has an equal importance!

What are my payment options and where does my credit card information go?

Booster Bids accepts a variety of payment options: Visa, MasterCard, Discover through one of the most trusted names in consumer digital security: PayPal. PayPal uses the Industry Standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology to safeguard the account registration process and sign-up information. And, PayPal does not sell or send personal information to marketers or third parties.

In addition, no credit card information goes to the Booster Bids website. (in other words, we never see it.)

I won…what’s next?

Congratulations! If you win an auction, you will receive a notice containing the details concerning your winning bid and how to obtain that particular item. Then, just follow the instructions.

How many accounts can I have?

There is a limit of one account per person. If you are operating more than one account, your account(s) will be closed and all bids and or wins will be deemed null and void.

Why is this important? We do this in order to keep the auctions fair for all users. We have found that having multiple accounts can provide an unfair advantage to other participants.

How many auctions can I win? Is there a limit?

There is no limit. Go ahead and try to win as many as you can or just concentrate your efforts on the item you most want.

How much is shipping?

It is FREE in the 48 contiguous states. If you live in Hawaii or Alaska (or a foreign country) we can quote you the lowest shipping price that we can find.

Are all the auctioned items brand new?

Absolutely.

Are the products under warranty?

All items come with standard manufacturer’s warranty except any vacation trip that is occasionally auctioned by Booster Bids.

Who am I bidding against?

People like yourself who want to have fun and bid on wonderful products (and may even help a worthy cause). So, sign up, bid and enjoy!
