I've been looking at the auctions and it looks like its pretty easy to get something for a few amount of points, but obviously, the nicer things you want, the more you will end up paying.
Anyway, it looks really cool to me and I'm going to give it a shot! Sign up at listia.com (and this is my friend link, so if you sign up you'll give me some points...cool! AND you will get an additional 100 points by signing up under me as opposed to not having a referral)
So, long story short, sign up at listia and start bidding! See if you can get anything fun, for FREE!!
