Great TV Auction Bidding

Great TV Auction Bidding

How to Bid

To bid on products seen on the Great TV Auction, call the number listed on the bottom of your screen during the live broadcast. One of our phone bank operators will be standing by to take your call. 

Express Bidding

The fastest and easiest way to bid is to register for an express bid number. Simply call ahead and we will assign you a number over the phone. (Please call prior to the live airing in order to register for an express bid number.)

Bidding Tips

Bid High! The high bid on the board may not necessarily be the last bid - we have approximately 20 operators taking bids at any given time, so you've got some competition out there. Bid high and leave the timid bidders behind.

Overbid!  If you bid higher than the posted retail value of an item, not only do you increase your chances of winning, but if you do win, you'll receive extra overbid incentives! In addition, Budweiser will match your overbid with donations of up to $1,500 to WCTE! Everybody wins when you overbid!
