Have you heard of YouNeverLose? This is a great new auction site, where you really never lose!
In case you are wondering, this is not a sponsored post. I am not being compensated for writing it. (If you use my referral link and purchase a gift card, I will get reward points for referring you though…anyone can get a referral link on their site). The reason I am writing about YouNeverLose because I think it’s really cool site, and I have gotten some great deals!
What makes YouNeverLose unique and different from other auction sites is that there is no cost to play! To get points to play with, you purchase gift cards to places that you already shop, like Gap, Old Navy, Macy’s, LL Bean, Land’s End, Nike, and many more! You can even buy AMC movie gift cards! For each dollar you spend in gift cards, you get points equal to that amount. Those points are what you will use to bid for other gift cards. So yes, you are spending money, but you get a gift card that you can use in return. So basically your points are FREE!
You might be wondering where the back to school shopping comes in though…
The gift cards that I purchase is what I am going to be using to do a lot of my back to school shopping come August. I know I’m going to have to get my children new clothing to start off the school year in September anyway. It’s not like they are going to stop growing this summer! Then I take my points and play in the auctions to win other gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Target, Home Depot and more! I mostly try to win Amazon gift cards, because it’s one of my favorite places to shop online!
You could end up winning these auctions for up to 95% off the value of the card! It may sound too good to be true, but it’s really not. Think of it this way. Retailers are always looking for new business. So they’re willing to sell gift cards below retail to YouNeverLose. That’s where YouNeverLose makes their money. YOU buy the gift cards at face value from YouNeverLose (which is how you’d buy them anyway) and then you use the points that you received from the gift card purchases to bid on other gift cards. Auction prices start at $0.00 and go up from there. Each time someone bids, it goes up by $0.01. When you win, all you have to do is pay the winning bid, along with a small transaction fee ($1 for $10 and $15 gift cards and $2 for $25 gift cards).
Can you really get a good deal? You be the judge. I won a $10 Amazon card for $0.09 (yes, you are reading that right, 9 cents!) and a $15 Amazon card for $1.26! I think that’s a really nice savings!
To keep things on an even playing field, players can only win a maximum of two auctions per day and ten per week. This keeps those that can buy a ton of gift cards from winning all the auctions, so everyday folks like you and I can win too.
Ready to give it a try? As I mentioned above, if you use my referral link to register, you’ll receive 5 points to get you started. If you purchase a gift card to get more points to bid with, YouNeverLose will give me 20 free reward points for referring you. You of course can turn around and refer friends as well and receive reward points too! It’s a win-win for everyone! What do you have to lose? YouNeverLose is true to their word — you really CAN’T lose!
