SkoreIt’s Own Today Auctions Make Penny Auction Bidding Fun

amusement park rideThe most frustrating thing about bidding on penny auctions is that you can waste spend money on bids only to lose the item.

I don’t know about you, and hopefully you’ve been better at it than I have, but losing money on penny auctions has upset me more times than I can count!

Sure, it’s all a part of the game.

But what if I told you that you didn’t have to play a game that wasn’t fun?

What I’m talking about is there still are penny auction sites that allow you, the penny auction bidder, to actually apply the money you spent bidding on an item and actually get the item for what it’s worth (well, SkoreIt’s stated retail) at least.

Even if the retail price is priced at more than what the item could be bought for at a store/online on or elsewhere, it’s much better to be able to do this and get the item than to walk away empty handed knowing that you’ve lost  hard earned money!

We’re not going to tell you what to do or where to bid at, but to be an informed consumer, remember to always do your research before you bid to make sure the item is worth it to you to bid for and use Own Today. is a penny auction site that allows you to do just that. SkoreIt’s Own Today auctions are what we’re talking about.

How does SkoreIt’s Own Today work? 

So let’s say you decided to try your hand at bidding on, you purchased bids and then did not win the auction item you were bidding for, if the item had the “Own Today” icon on the page, you will have the opportunity to apply the value of the bids you placed in the auction toward purchasing the item at SkoreIt’s listed retail price.

For example, if you used $175 worth of bids in an auction that has a check-out value of $225, you would be given an opportunity to purchase the auction for $50.

$225 (listed check-out/retail price)
– $175 (value of bids you placed in the auction)

Your Own Today purchase price would be $50. Remember,  the window of opportunity to purchase the item only lasts 3 hours from the auction end time.

Make sure the item qualifies for Own Today though before you decide to go “all in” to buy it now. I went all in a few years ago on a brand new Apple iMac on the now defunct penny auction site and got quite the discount, ($1300+ discount!) but I was prepared to purchase the item at retail if I didn’t win. Not bad?

If you don’t win, you will receive a credit equal to the total value of the bids you used towards a purchase of the item (expires in 3 hours).

    This is a good article. Coincidentally the exact day that it was written SkoreIt eliminated the OT option on about 80% of it’s items that used to have it. It is a far less appealing site without that option. There are far too many people on the site in relation to the number of auctions of a daily basis….Just an opinion.

      Wow, I did not realize that this happened too, how unfortunate.

    Should also note that if you use promo bids on an OT item, you do not get any value towards the purchase of an item you do not win.
