Bored with the same old shopping and auction sites, where the only thing you’re competing for is to shave a few dollars off a vintage bowling shirt? Well now you can satisfy your need to gather the most toys, and fuel your competitive side with the new hybrid shopping/auction/gaming site, Sixjax.com.
At Sixjax you purchase packs of tokens for around 40 cents, then hit the auctions to compete against other guys looking to score items like an LG WiFi Blu-Ray player (sold for $4.74), the Jackass 3 DVD (went for $0.21), or a $50 Nike gift card (that some lucky guy got for 30 cents.) As I’m writing this, a $499 32″ LCD TV has a top bid of a nickel.
To make things more interesting, there are more options than you’ll find on your standard auction site. You can choose the Last Man Standing auction, where the winning bidder pays only 1% of the normal auction price. Or compete in an Upper Hand auction, where you can use “modifiers” you purchase to increase your chances of winning. Modifiers include Freeze Bidder, where you can prevent someone from bidding for 30 seconds, Short Circuit which prevents someone from using a Bid Bot for 30 seconds, and Brain Freeze that prevents other users from placing bids for 30 seconds.
You can also earn Achievements by bidding and buying. They’re like merit badges for things like being the leading bidder, placing your first bid, recruiting other people and winning auctions. They come with Reward Points that can be used for purchases in the Rewards Store.
Leave it to guys to turn shopping into a competition.
