New Penny Auction Site to Offer Semis?

hog wild bids

HogWildBids.com is a new penny auction site,  so new that they have not yet been assigned an Alexa or WebsiteOutlook.com traffic ranking. The domain was purchased on December 15th, yet they have queued a brand new Chevrolet Malibu LTZ set to sell this week. The Malibu has a stated MSRP of $28,979.89.

That’s not all, according to Hog Wild Bids’ Manta.com profile they’re planning on selling semis too, yep – semi trucks:

Well-known are remedies which are used to reduce inflammation caused by inflammation of the skeletal muscle etc. There were only few examples. Did somebody tell you about canadian generic Viagra? Maybe you already know about the question. Sexual disfunction can be a result of a physical condition. Even when it has a physical cause, psychological problems can make the disorder worse. Sex drive problems are so commonly a product of how you feel that there is some to that “headache” saying after all.

    I am having a hard time understanding from a profit perspective how this new site could possibly make money on their car & semi auctions. I think the car has a much better chance than the semi because 95% of the country would not even want a semi. Just to break even on the car they would need nearly 3 million bids since its a 1 cent increment auction. I understand trying to use this auction for marketing and to make a big splash at launch but you just better have the cash reserves to handle it.

    I think you’re missing the entire aspect as to what makes penny auctions profitable.

    in the example of the car, lets say, for instance, the bid points are $1 each. in order to “break even”, the auto would only have to sell for 28,980 bids, or $289.80: remember, each bid equals only one cent, therefore, 29000 bids = $290.00 final price.(actually less than that if you consider the final selling price of the auto.)

    the exact point you’re missing is that each and every bid you place costs you not only a penny, but the cost of each individual “bid point” as well.

    I hope this clarifies things for you
