  2. $25 Amy Reichert

    I finally figured out how to do it. And I'm not bidding again till we get a third party, cause at this rate, you'll win. ;)

  3. I may or may not have won a different auction (there's a question on the rules). If I did, I'll drop out. Otherwise, I guess we're at a standstill! :D

    1. I thought so too, but on the rules page it says the following: **The last and winning bid CAN go against your own bid and be $3!!!**

      I only just learned this because I lost out to someone on one of the Jenny Bent appointments.

  5. Amy, can you bid twice in a row like that?

  6. FYI - that's not me. New Amy. Hi new Amy. And I don't think you can double bid.

  7. It looks like someone won a Jenny Bent auction double-bidding. I just got smoked on a Pam one that way too. I wish that had been clarified ahead of time.

    1. That doesn't seem right, otherwise I would be bidding like a mad woman. CupidLC, can you weigh in?

    2. Sorry for the confusions guys. :(

      You can ONLY double bid when it's the last bid. Otherwise, no one would make the second to last bid.

  8. Cupid just tweeted me that it should be clarified. I'm looking...

  9. OK, on the other thread where this happened, the person who double-bid got declared the winner. So, no Jessica for me. :(

    Good luck, aereichert.

    1. Thanks for asking the questions. As you can see, since $29 was skipped, I gave it a whirl by finishing with a double bid. We shall see. Good luck to you too.

    1. Since Anon Amy skipped the $29 mark, I thought I'd give this a try.
