Wendy's Bid for Value Game

Wendy's has started an interesting new promotion. I had to read the fine print to truly understand what they were going to do. It all starts tomorrow.

Wendy's will post high-ticket items on their game site (HERE). Contestants (that's us!) log into the site and answer trivia questions about Wendy's products. If you correctly answer a trivia question, you get to click the BID button. The bids begin at the actual retail value of each item. Each click of the BID button lowers that price by a pre-designated amount. The person whose click causes the price to go down to 99 cents wins the item!

I was a bit confused at first, but it acutally sounds like fun now! These aren't real money bids. They're just chances to knock the price down. If you knock it to 99 cents, you win! They have some great prizes, and the prizes are spread our over several days (March 25 through April 3). Prizes include an Xbox, Plasma HDTV, pool table, 4-6 person hot tub, basketball hoop, autographed items, and more. Go HERE to see the official rules and prize list.

The fun begins tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. EST. Be sure to leave a comment if you win.... or just if you have fun trying!
