It's easy to win a prize

You gotta admit it, beyond receiving presents, prizes have got to be the next best thing in life besides receiving free stuff. I'm not scheduled to receive any presents until Christmas time, and free stuff (the good kind) is hard to come by, so I thought I'd try my hand at prizes.

That's where the Bid4Prizes website comes in handy. It's way easier to get a prize from them than if you enter one of those contests that make you buy stuff and write a slogan for them (none of my slogans have hit the mark so far!) or creatively sign the company name (I like my handwriting and all, but it doesn't win marks for creativity!). All you gotta do to win the prize of your choice is enter the lowest bid (that's unique) and if no one picks the same number as you, that's it, the prize is yours! And no, you don't have to pay a single cent (unless the taxman comes a calling) not even for shipping. I like the sound of that, don't you?

Right now I have my eyes on that cherry red BMW 3 series... It's a beemer, it's the cute 3 series, and it's red. Perfecto! I can just imagine myself taking the curves of a road to nowhere in it, with Matchbox Twenty blasting away as my beemer eats up the miles... Yeah, baby!

Now where did I put my mobile? *beep beep beep as fingers busily text bids*

I expect a ride in that beemer when I am back, ok? KLIA to PJ?

Winn said...

may u can bid half a sen, but if LB also bid half a sen then u are not unique already..means u dont get to win..

kyh said...

wah.... super cool sial!

kak rinnah, when gonna fetch me ah? :P

L B said...

I bid Liucas

rinnah said...

may: 5 hugs for you!!!

Lowest bid to the nearest sen wins... eg. if two people bid 5 sen, then 6 sen is the lowest unique bid until someone else bids 6 sen and so on and so forth...

l b: 3 beemer hugs for you!!

Sure thing, but first I have to win the beemer! What's a good number to bid, eh?
