Winila and Ruthilicious’ Giveaway – 5 Followers to Win Winilia Credits! [Extended Til December 31, 2010]

December 13, 2010

Something new is brewing in the internet today. Facebook, Twitter and blogs have been bombarded with deals and discounts from group buying sites which have been trending in the internet today. Oh, how much do we love good deals?! Now, here’s a new site which gives bidding a new experience. Items and gadgets sell at 95% off!

Welcome to Winila! Winila is the newest bidding online site.

When I first checked the site, I was surprised that the counter keeps on refreshing to 20 seconds. I thought there is some bug in the site, until, alas!! I have figured out how it works. The counter adds 15 seconds whenever another bidder bids on the items. So we are not just battling with time and other bidders, but also with perfect timing. You can be outbid with just a click of the mouse.

I am surprised when I checked Past Auctions tab and saw items like Blackberry Bold 9000 sold/won at more than 90% off (cheap price of Php639.02!).

So how does Winilia work?

With each Bid placed the price of the item on which you are bidding increases by the amount specified. Each new Bid adds 15 seconds to the auction. Once the auction time goes below 20 seconds it will never go over 20 seconds. The auction ends when the auction clock reaches zero. The final bidder is declared the winner.

What I like most about the site is that the homepage itself gives me the sense of security and trust that it is a valid site and not another scam. Buyers and bidders must first buy credits to be able to bid. For those who want to buy the items at the regular price, the Buy Now option is also available.

For those who want to experience the fun and thrill of bidding and winning in Winilia, I am giving away FREE credits!
