Who is BidandWin?
This competition pits you against other bidders for great prizes. Unlike the traditional auction where the highest bids win, the goal here is to place the lowest bid possible that no one else has bid; aka lowest unique bid. Everyone's bids are a secret which makes it more fun. The added twist is that the friends give bidders hints to go lower or higher to knock out the current winner and they give 20 bids PER DAY for people to play against each other. Best of all, Winners are never required to pay for the actual bid amount or shipping costs!

How do I Play?
Select a prize and place your bid in cents. If you place a bid of 1.50 it will be the same as entering 150. If you place a bid of .000021 it will be the same as 21. Negative numbers will not be accepted as a valid bid. Decimals will be removed for numbers entered as a decimal. For example if you place a bid of 1.52 your bid will automatically convert to 152. In this competition, the lowest unique bidder is the person who has placed the lowest bid amount that no other person has bid. When two people place the same bid, that number is no longer unique. When a person has a unique bid but there are others that are lower, then it is not the lowest. To win any BidandWin online auctions, you must be the one with the lowest AND unique bid at the end of the auction. Check out this helpful picture:

Is there a strategy to playing?
Try to pick the least common low bid amount. Easier said than done though, but here are some ideas to get you thinking more strategically. Most bidders will not fully understand how game works, at least when they place their first bid, so most bids are likely to be based on guesswork. In this case the most obvious amounts will be bid on such as:
Now consider the numbers of people entering, and how many bids they place. There are at least eight different prizes to choose from. Remember that the more popular the prize, the more people bid. some bid amounts will be picked multiple times. This is what makes it hard to get a unique bid. Also, realization of this difficulty may drive people to bid higher to make it easier for them to get unique bids.
- Unlucky 13 - nobody else would bid this?
- 01 - It's so obvious, maybe nobody will bid this?
So depending on the number of people bidding and the length of time the auction runs, you can use some skill to identify price ranges where you feel there is a better chance of identifying a unique minimum bid price.
How much do I pay if I win the prize?
NOTHING!!! The amount you bid for the prize is only used to determine the winner so the actual bid amount is virtual money entered to win the Auction. BidandWin even pays for the shipping. As with winning any prize; federal, state and local taxes may apply. Please check Official Rules before you play.

Is there a strategy to playing?
A participant who places a bid on a prize.
A bid is the amount the bidder places for the prize. All bids are in placed in cents.
Low unique bid
In a lowest unique bid auction, the minimum price you can bid is 01. When the auction closes, the bid with the lowest price that no one else has bid wins the auction.
A Unique Bid in the BidandWin auction game is where one player has a bid amount that no one else has bid. This can be any amount from 1 cent on up. You do not pay for the winning bid - the total amount bid is not a required amount for you to pay. Remember you must be the lowest unique bidder to win.
A duplicate bid is when someone bids .10 cent and another person bids .10 cent. These would then cancel each other out. 02 cents would be the next lowest unique bid and so on until the auction ends.
The auction keyword is the prize code you enter to bid on a specific prize. For example if you want to bid on a Samsung tv the auction keyword given could be "tv". Each prize will have a different keyword to distinguish which items you are bidding on
