Pricebenders™ is a section at TripleClicks.com that features live “penny auctions.”
Pricebenders™ Auctions deliver brand new (and, occasionally, refurbished), brand name merchandise, gift cards, and more at prices that are far below typical retail. In fact, prices start at just $.01 (yes, just one cent!). With each bid received, the price increases by just one cent. The final bidder may then buy the item for the ending price (usually a fraction of the normal retail price). Check out our latest winners and the incredible deals being won HERE.
TripleClicks “TCredits” are used for bidding. TCredits are available in paks of 1, 10, 20, 50, and 200…and for as little as $.29 apiece. Note that TCredits can also be used for selling items on TripleClicks, purchasing products, downloading music, and more.
Once you’ve got your TCredits, you’re ready to start bidding. Be the final bidder and you win the item. It’s that simple!
Special note: With Pricebenders™, even when you don’t win the auction, you still win!…because for every bid, you earn 5 Member Rewards Points (MRP). MRPs can be redeemed on tens of thousands of different TripleClicks products and services and music downloads.
One more thing: Each Pricebenders™ Auction also includes a Pick-The-Price (PTP) contest, in which TC Members may win 100 FREE TCredits that can be used for bidding on future Pricebenders auctions, music downloads, listing no-longer-needed stuff for sale on TripleClicks, purchasing products, and more. It’s only 1 TCredit to enter, and you’ll also pick up 5 MRP with your entry. Just log in at TripleClicks at the start of each new feature auction and click the Pick-The-Price Contest button. Then, just submit the amount you think will be the winning price of the item. You can enter each time we start a new auction, so you’ll have multiple chances to win each day. If no one predicts the exact final price, the person who is closest without going over wins 25 FREE TCredits. In the event of a tie, the person who posted the winning prediction first will receive either the 100 or 25 FREE TCredits prize, whichever is applicable.
PTP Contest Rules:
- 1. Enter with one TCredit.
- 2. Entry must be submitted before the auction price hits $1.00.
- 3. One entry per TripleClicks Member per auction.
- 4. No purchase necessary to win.
- 5. Maximum of one prize per day.
- 6. No winners if the auction ends at less than $1.25.

Once you’ve got your TCredits, you’re ready to start bidding…which is as simple as clicking the “Bid!” button on one of our auction pages. Be the final bidder and you win the item. It’s that simple!
Special note: With Pricebenders™, even when you don’t win the auction, you still win!…because for every bid, you earn 5 Member Rewards Points (MRP).
Q: How do I know if I’m the high bidder?
A: Each time a bid is received, the auction panel will automatically change to display the first name and last name initial of the latest bidder. Note that bids can be coming in rapidly and you may not see your name appear every time you bid. If you just placed a bid and you see someone else’s name appear, it probably means that person placed a bid a fraction of a second after you did. You can verify this by viewing the Bid Log located on the Auction Details Page. If you do not see your name on the Bid Log, you could be experiencing technical difficulties and you may wish to contact one of our Customer Care representatives for assistance.
Q: Can I see who is bidding on an auction?
A: Yes, we provide a Bid Log, which lists the most recent 10 bids/bidders. The Bid Log is located on the Auction Details Page. If you are viewing an auction from the TripleClicks homepage, to get to the Auction Details Page, just click on the title of the item being auctioned.
Q: What does “WBF” mean in the Notes column of the Pricebenders Auction Schedule?
A: When you see “WBF” in an auction’s Notes column, it means that it will be “Winner Bids Free” auction, and the winning bidder will receive all of his/her bids back upon completion of the auction.
Q: What does “1WA” mean in the Notes column of the Pricebenders Auction Schedule?
A: The term “1WA” in an auction’s Notes column indicates a special auction open ONLY to bidders who have never won a Pricebenders auction before.
Q: I can’t be around my computer 24 hours a day. Is there any way to have bids placed when I’m not available?
A: Yes. Every bid confirmation contains a link to our Auto-Bid system. Just click this link and set up your auto-bid limits and you’re all set!
Q: I click the bid button, but nothing happens. What should I do?
A: Try restarting your Web browser. If that does not resolve it, try restarting your computer. Also, make sure you are using the recommended software and hardware specified below.
Q: What happens to the TCredits I’ve used in bidding if I don’t win the item?
A: Using a TCredit for bidding on a Pricebenders auction means you are spending it, the same as if you used a TCredit for listing something for sale on TripleClicks or buying a song from the store or any of the other actions for which TCredits can be used.
Q: So I used TCredits to bid with, but if I don’t win, I get nothing?
A: Even when you don’t win the auction, you still win! Because for every bid you place, you earn 5 M
