Heard about it on mike and mike (theres a promo code for 15 free bids for those interesting in trying it--- its kinda fun to watch)

Its an auction site just like ebay with the exception that each bid costs the bidder money and each bid adds 10 seconds to the auction time. Items usually sell for less than 95-99% retail price but the website still makes a ton of money because although auctions start at $0.01, each bid costs like $0.60 to place.

For example:

Theres currently silver bars on there that retail for $346

The current bid is $34.15 and rising.

A huge savings if you win it, but thats 3,414 bids on that item that the company is making $2000 off of.

It's pretty much a crappy form of gambling.  You may get a great deal or you may have invested so much money already that you keep going till you win and end up spending more than the item is worth.

You also rarely get a deal. Simple economics suggests that people will pretty much see value in bidding for a product until it reaches the actual price.

I checked out skoreit when I first heard about it on ESPN some while ago... needless to say, I didn't score anything.
