Bidding TipsBid 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!
