All auctions always start "in the money" as the sellers initial asking price is always less than the certificates redemption value; therefore bidders like to get a jump on their favorite seller's auctions!
Obviously you don't have the time to keep checking to see when your favorite sellers are starting a new auction! So Peekaboo developed an email alert system that allows you to choose only your favorite sellers to receive email alerts.
Once you receive the Peekaboo alert you may then decide to quickly use the "Auto Bid & Buy" feature so you can then get back to your life and automate savings from all your favorites!
Peekaboo is sending the new auction emailed alerts for the seller, so the seller will NEVER obtain your email alert address.
If your email service enables you to add certain incoming email addresses to a "permit list" so your incoming emails do not go into your junk-spam folder, the email address to permit is: [email protected]
When you purchase your credits there is NO EXPIRATION to use your credits.
You get 2 free credits when registering just to try the service! You also can receive 10 free credits simply by referring anyone who buys even the smallest credit package. The 10 free credits enable you to buy 5 discounted certificates of your choice! See the Free credits page where we have provided a sample referral letter to email your referrals. Go ahead and refer as many people as you like and get lots of free credits!
With Peekaboo you're already "in the money" when the auction begins. Don't confuse Peekaboo with a penny auction where you don't control when you want to win! You control when you want to win! You use credits to see the current price and you have total control over buying that non-expiring certificate at deep discount! You save much more than you spend!
The larger the credit package purchased the lower the cost per credit. You get huge discounts on your favorite businesses for as little as 12 cents per credit!
Since all Peekaboo auctions initial asking prices are always substantially less than the certificates redemption value you have total control to lock in substantial savings that are many times what it costs you!
Even if you do not win an auction most sellers offer a consolation certificate that will save you much more than the bidding credits used when bypassing on winning the auction!
You first need to register as a bidder before you can buy bidding credits for your account. Only 2 credits will be used to see what the current auction price is. We will give you the 2 free credits after you register. An email will be sent to the email address used when registering and you will need to confirm receipt.
To get a 10 seconds peek to see what the current asking price is to obtain the redemption value bidders need to use 2 bidding credits. Bidders have 10 seconds to decide on stopping the auction and declaring themselves the winner or bypass because the bidder believes the price will go much lower. Bidders have the option of manually checking the price or automating the time interval to check the price and also setting an automated buy price to stop the auction. Whether a bidder manually peeks to see the current price or automates peeking the cost is the same 2 bidding credits.
