Wendy's Bid for Value contest
|Today was the last day of Wendy's 99 cent Bid for Value contest. Some lucky person won a Hyundai 2008 Santa Fe SE. worth $28,000.|
"The promotion (the "Promotion") is set up in reverse auction style, whereby each time an entrant submits a bid ("Bid"), a ticker ("Ticker") originating at the Prize's Average Retail Value ("ARV") will reduce in a specified increment (e.g. $1 or $0.01) for each Bid until it reaches $0.99. The entrant whose Bid causes the Ticker to reach $0.99 (as hereinafter defined, the "Successful Bid" and "Successful Bidder'), will win the stated prize (the "Prize"), subject to verification."
At, 2:00PM est, I made my first bid and got this error message but the site was fixed in no time and the contest was underway.
In order to make a bid a random question about Wendy's Restaurant needs to be answered.
If the answer is correct a bid is submitted.
My last successful bid was $1,079.xx something and then the contest was over. :(
Occasionally while bidding, this node error showed up and I had to click the refresh on my browser.
The bidding was slow but the contest was fun because it was different than other contests. As you can see, in the second to last screen capture, Wendy's will have more of these contests in the future. :)
