Wendy’s, yeah the fast food chain that claims to be “waaaay better than fast food,” is having a promotion. They’re running a bunch of reverse auctions for the next two weeks and will be giving away Xboxes, ThinkPads, Plasma HDTVs, cash, a car and tons of other stuff. 

Here’s how it works. They will start each item at its retail price. Each bid you guys place will drop the price by one cent. Whoever drops the price to 99 cents wins the item. It is not like other auctions where bids cost money though this one is completely free. So go ahead and bid away. 

Here is the press release and some details: 

 

Introducing the first-of-its kind online value auction where the  
lowest bidder wins

What: Wendy’s 99¢ Bid for Value – It’s an auction but waaaay better. Wendy’s is auctioning off XBoxes, Snowboards, laptops, HDTVs and even a brand new car…all for 99¢!

Bidding starts at the prizes’ retail value.  Each bid lowers the price by 1¢, so the more you bid, the lower the price goes. The lucky bidder who lowers the price to 99¢ wins!

When: The Wendy’s 99¢ Bid for Value auction kicks off at 1pm EST on January 7th and runs through January 14th.  Register to play today!
