This Guaranteed auction not working for me


 Posted 3 months ago More by Michael E.

I have always got the message on my alert page that I have the opportunity of participating in the guaranteed win auction. And I also understand that the first 200 bidders get to win with as little as one TCredit, but several times have participated even as early as when the bid start,but still winning noting. So I don't get it. or are the winners selected at random. The pricebender auction is one of the contest I least visit. Because am having the impression that getting to win is very demanding with a lot of experienced and Top notch contestants. and even the guaranteed auction seems not guaranteed for me.

Hi Michael! New GUARANTEED WIN Pricebenders auctions! November 5, 2015 by admin screenshot_761If you’ve never won a Pricebenders auction before (or have not won in the last year), we’ve got GREAT news for you! Beginning Wednesday, November 11th, we’ll be offering auctions for new CSAs in which you are guaranteed to win! Yes, even with as little as one bid (one TCredit), you’re guaranteed to win a CSA (Co-Sponsored Affiliate)! HOW IT WORKS: 1. When a Guaranteed Win (GW) auction starts, get to the auction and place at least one bid. 2. Once the auction ends, you’ll receive an email with directions for how to claim your CSA (note that it will require going through checkout at TripleClicks). The cost at checkout will be no more than $1.29–which can be paid by any form of payment including MRP or gift certificate. The price could be less, but we’re capping the price at $1.29. 3. To add some additional fun and interest, all GW auctions will also have a “Last Bidder’s Bonus.” In short, there will be a secondary prize of 35 CSAs awarded to the person who places the last bid. But it gets better; the bundle quantity will increase in proportion to the number of bids placed. So the more persons participating, the higher the bundle quantity can go (up to 200 total CSAs)! If you’re the final bidder, they’re yours…at no additional cost! 4. Don’t forget that each bid also earns you 5 MRP (Member Rewards Points) and an Action VP (Limit: 500 AVP from auctions per month), too! Plus, for every 10 bids, you’ll earn up to one PSA via’s our amazing, business-boosting Bid & Build program. LIMITS: Participation in Guaranteed Win auctions are limited to SFI affiliates who have never won a Pricebenders auction OR have not won in the last 365 days. A maximum of 200 bidders will be allowed per auction. If you arrive late and bids have been placed already by more than 200 different people, you’ll have to wait until the next GW auction. The Last Bidder’s Bonus bundle is capped at 200 CSAs. JOIN THE FUN…ON “GUARANTEED WIN WEDNESDAYS!” To enter one of the GW auctions, just be at the Pricebenders index at one of the following times on a Wednesday, with at least one TCredit in your account and be ready to bid: 4am CT 11am CT 8pm CT We plan to have GW auctions at these same three times each Wednesday, starting November 11th. Why GW auctions are a BIG deal for SFI Team Leaders WOW. Imagine dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of your affiliates trying out a GW auction…and why wouldn’t they? All they need is just one TCredit to win a fresh CSA. Tip: You can transfer up to ten TCredits to your PSAs if not having a TCredit is stopping them from joining the fun. screenshot_755So what happens after they’ve jumped into a GW auction? Well, for starters, they’re going to learn exactly how Pricebenders works, by participating in an actual auction. This is very valuable because it can eliminate the fear of auctions that many people have. More importantly, they will experience a Pricebenders WIN–which may very well embolden them to become a regular participant at Pricebenders. So, with large numbers of affiliates on your team active at Pricebenders (and with a fresh, new CSA, too), might that translate into all kinds of new activity–and higher commissions that come with it–for both them and you? Absolutely! And, of course, because of SFI’s powerful profit-sharing program (the TripleClicks Executive Pool), GW auctions have the potential to give a big boost to overall revenues and the share value of your Matching VPs–even if there’s not a lot of people in your own team that are eligible to participate. Yeah, GW auctions could be a very, very big deal indeed! So if you’re excited about this like we are, make sure all of your existing affiliates and those joining daily know about Guaranteed Win Wednesdays (starting November 11th). Note: We’ll be doing special promotions of all GW auctions (at least for a while), so you’ll definitely know about upcoming GW auctions so you can provide a heads-up for your team. Many Greetings!

Hello Michael, Guaranteed win auction holds every Wednesday only for those who have not won any bid at all in SFI. So, if you are in that category, with just a bid, you are guaranteed to win even if you don't win at the end of the bid. Once you bid, a win is guaranteed for you. Thanks

Hello Micheal, Once you bid in any guaranteed win auction, you sure will have the opportunity of purchasing that product at the concluded auction price even when you are not the person that bid the winning price . As the bidding is over SFI will send you a mail informing you of the last bidding price so that you can purchase if you so wish,and that is why it is called Guaranteed win. As for you not winning out rightly, I will advice that you persevere and continue to bid , certainly you will win someday.

we have Guaranteed win Auction for newbies that are going on every Wednesday a few times a day! You are all given a chance to win your first auction and to get 1 CSA as reward. All you need is to participate (bid at least once with 1 TCredit) and once the auction is over; you'll get 1 CSA! And, after that, you will not be eligible to participate in those auctions - just once. Hope this help you and please watch the time very well. Wish you the best in next participation. [[i]Removed reference to obsolete Bid&Build program.[/i]]

Hi Michael I hope you are aware that you need to have a minimum rank of EA in order to receive CSAs. Perhaps this could be the reason you are not getting the guaranteed CSAs. How about you try again after achieving EA (Executive Affiliate) status?
