Lynn may can explain it better but sounds like someone has a bid way higher as their Max Bid they'll spend & the system is set to raise their bid by 1 or whatever is needed to rebid till their Max is met

You can also set a higher Max & it'll rebid for you

BUT KNOW THIS YOU CAN'T CANCEL YOUR BID If you put all your points & you win you must pay all your points & take the prize Which is why Hokie said pick prize you really want spend points on cause if win you must accept the win 

& also if your outbid you'll get points back I learned this when was playing around & I was glad got outbid but it took half a day b4 got my points back Whew

Good Luck girl

Good Morning Lynn,

The very day I decide to bid on an Auction I got the same exact screenshot you just posted.  I was bidding on the $5 Amazon (Digital Delivery) Giftcard that ends 8/9.  Everytime I bid, I got red banner stating that I was Outbid, refreshed screen and (1) pt. bid above mine.  Increased bid by 100 pts. and Outbid message again immediately that I was outbidded.  

Is this normal?  

@AARPTeri could you help with explaination of what's going on?  I have (3) bids showing an all outbid immediately, this doesn't seem right or possible.

My Bid Points   Bid Date & Time

 160,251AUG 8, 2019 at 8:17:53 AM EDT
x160,250AUG 8, 2019 at 8:17:53 AM EDT
 160,151AUG 8, 2019 at 8:17:31 AM EDT
x160,150AUG 8, 2019 at 8:17:31 AM EDT
 160,011AUG 8, 2019 at 8:16:51 AM EDT
x160,010AUG 8, 2019 at 8:16:51 AM EDT
 160,006AUG 7, 2019 at 8:29:57 PM EDT

PLEASE HELP!!! When I refresh the screen it states that Current Bid is 160,252. I'm bidding immediately increasing my own bid, and being outbid by the system by (1) pt.

 

Have a Blessed Day, 

Marylin

Auctions are Wonky this morning

217 Views
Message 3 of 3

At about 6:20 this morning, I placed bids on some of the new auctions ending 8-11-19. On several of them, the system told me that my bid was rejected and showed 0 points in the red box. Sometimes, the screen would alternate every 2 seconds or so between the red box showing 0 points with a rejected bid and a green box showing I was the leader with 1 point.

 

I tried refreshing the screen, even repeatedly. That didn’t help.

 

I think we have a moth hiding in the background somewhere.

 

Enjoy!
