Confused about Pricebenders?

PricebendersLogoOur Pricebenders Penny Auctions is one of our most popular destinations at TripleClicks. However, some affiliates–including some in your own team–might not fully understand how these auctions actually work.

Very simply, with Pricebenders Auctions, you can bid on and win hot, in-demand, name brand products (i.e., Amazon Kindles, iPads, silver bullion coins, laptops, and more) as well as PSAs, CSAs, S-Builder Co-op units, and other SFI “business-builder” tools, for a fraction of the retail price. In fact, auction winners typically save more than 90% off–with a MINIMUM savings of 77% off (excluding cost of bids, if any)!

Here’s an example of just a few recent Pricebenders Auctions:

* Black & Decker 20-Volt Lithium-Ion Drill (reg. $169.99) auctioned off for $1.74
* Apple iPad Mini 4 (space gray) (reg. $399) auctioned off for just $2.90
* Sony 5.1 Channel 3D Blu-ray Disc Home Theater System w/Built-In Wi-Fi (reg. $299.99) auctioned off for $0.72
* Fitbit Flex Wireless Activity + Sleep Wristband (reg. $99.95) auctioned off for $1.19

Pricebenders Auctions are open for worldwide bidding…and any affiliate anywhere in the world can participate. For physical items won at auction, we offer FREE SHIPPING to the U.S. and Canada. International Affiliates can have the item shipped to a United States address at no additional cost OR choose Your Choice Dropshipping (among other options).

Auctions are ongoing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and each one starts at just one cent, with the price going up by just one cent more for each bid placed. The final bidder may then buy the item for the ending price…OR opt for a TC gift certificate or a quantity of TCredits. Join the fun today!

But that’s just the surface of all the fun available at Pricebenders! For a great rundown of ALL the bells and whistles of Pricebenders Auctions, as well as winning strategies and tips, FAQs, and more, see the How It Works article.

Re-post: Pricebenders Auctions open for worldwide bidding!

PricebendersLogoSome members may mistakenly think that Pricebenders Auctions are available only to US and Canadian members.

ON THE CONTRARY, ALL Pricebenders auctions are open to ALL bidders from ALL countries!

That’s right: Although we can only ship auction items within the U.S. and Canada, ANY TC member from anywhere in the world can bid on (and win!) any Pricebender auction.

How? Simple! Through our exclusive TC Gift Certificate Exchange and Your Choice Dropshipping programs, TC Members living outside the U.S. and Canada can join the fun and participate fully in Pricebenders Auctions.

NOTE: If possible, International Affiliates can also have the item shipped to a United States address at no additional cost by entering the name of the friend or family member and their U.S. address in the Ship-To fields during checkout. 

Here’s how it works:


screenshot_511Go and ahead and bid on any Pricebenders Auction you like. If you win a physical item that must be shipped and you live outside the U.S. or Canada, you’ll automatically be offered your choice of a TC gift certificate or a quantity of TCredits (each of which can be redeemed on virtually any product at TripleClicks).

Here’s an example: You bid on a tablet and win.  But because you live in Germany, when you check out, you’re offered your choice of a gift certificate or a quantity of TCredits.  You choose the gift certificate.  You can now purchase a tablet from a local ECA, eliminating or reducing shipping time and costs.

But it gets better…


Let’s say that you really WANT the product that was auctioned off at Pricebenders. No problem! If you don’t have a U.S. or Canadian address you can have your item shipped to, you can simply use the Your Choice Dropshipping (YCD) program to redeem your TC gift certificate you received after winning your auction. Then, just redeem it for the same or similar Pricebender auction item…or ANY item of your choice from some of the world’s most popular e-commerce sites!

YCD currently works with the following 11 Amazon sites:



Just submit the URL of the product you want to TripleClicks, and we’ll take it from there.  We’ll deduct the amount of the item from your gift certificate balance (plus a $8 service fee) and have the item shipped directly from the site to you! See details.

Simply put…the Your Choice Dropshipping program essentially lets you bid for anything YOU want!
