    Do I hear $300????
    OK -- let's kick-start this Super-Affiliate Auction!

    The first three ABW'ers to bid $300.00 or more for any of the fabulous super-affiliates up for grabs, will receive a FREE FULL CONFERENCE PASS to their choice of either Affiliate Summit 2008 West in Las Vegas or Affiliate Summit 2008 East in Boston!

    Here is a link to all 8 super-affiliate auctions going on now.

    100% of the funds received during this auction will go directly to the Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation, which has dedicated nearly 25 years to helping seriously ill children and their families cope with the pain, fear and isolation through entertainment, education and family activities. Starlight Starbright’s programs have been proven to distract children from their pain, help them better understand and manage their illnesses and connect families facing similar challenges, so that no one feels alone. More information about this incredible organization can be found at http://www.starlight.org.

    Merchants/Networks/OPM's: This is an amazing opportunity for you to get feedback on your program(s) -- one that you should not miss!

    Bid high and thanks for your support!

    Wow, Missy - sounds like a deal! And I really do want to learn how to FISH.

    So, I just bid a tad over $300 for Mr. Grady. However the auction page only shows 294.24 -- strange, indeed.

    Yep -- I see that too. It's showing as 294.24.

    I have to assume its because one of the bidders has some max bid higher than what you entered based on eBay's bidding system.

    I've gotta see it hit 300.00 on the auction to award the pass.

    Looks like someone else has their eye on Pat and is not giving up easy That's a great thing for the Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation!

    Lets be careful not to use a username and a real name together in these posts. Remember we're not supposed to 'out' anyone here.

    Interesting, indeed. But eBay's way of indicating bids is a bit stilted for this type of an auction (or maybe just the contest). Someone mush have gone to $325 (or so) - to show the current high of $334.

    I've got a couple of more tricks up my sleeve...

    And don't forget.. Shawn and I will be matching all monies raised through the Affiliate Summit Auctions for Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation -- up to $5,000.00!

    Bidders... keep your eyes on the Affiliate Summit Forum for additional promotional opportunities surrounding the auctions... Don't wait till the last minute to bid!

    Thanks for all the support!

    Woo hoo! I joined the "over $300" crowd, and all 8 super-affiliates now have bids.

    Nearly $1500 has been raised for Starlight Starbright so far based on the current bids, not counting Shawn and Missy's matching funds!

    Dinner with any of these super-affiliates could be extremely valuable to the right merchants. Tim Storm is perhaps the most successful affiliate in the world, but is fairly reclusive. You don't get a chance to even meet him very often, much less have a meal with him. Scott Jangro is a veteran of the industry, a technical and marketing genius, and one of the nicest guys I've ever met. If either of their auctions go for under $1000 (and they're both at or near $100 right now), someone is getting an incredible deal.

    If anyone hasn't peeked over there at eBay lately to see how this is going, you are missing out on a great horse race.

    Things are really tight and it looks to be quite a bit of money raised so far. Beware of the sniper bidders...
