Frequently Asked Questions


When are your auctions?

Our auctions are held every Wednesday evening at 8:30pm Eastern Time. We will announce if there will not be an auction that evening. Occasionally, we will hold surprise weekend sales and pre-orders as well. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and sign up for our Newsletter so you’ll be notified of any surprise auctions and special alerts!

Am I bidding like on EBay, where the highest bidder wins?

No, our items have a set price and are awarded on a first come first serve basis based on the quantity available. Not everyone will win.

How do I bid on an item that I want to have?

Please visit our HOW TO BID page for detailed instructions.

Will you announce items ahead of the auction time?

We will post pre-auction sneak peaks on Facebook and Twitter, so be sure to follow us!
