Eighteen (18) unless your state has an age restriction.
As long as you have sufficient Bidding Reward PointsTM and you are eighteen (18) or over, then you may bid on an auction.
Good common sense will tell you that we certainly do not need negative controversy or anything that puts a bad light on our network. Make sure you understand how the bidding process works and then bid in a responsible manor when participating in these auctions.
Note: Some auctions are available, only for new members or first-time bidders.
Yes. Advertisers are paying us to put on these auctions and they want people, that live in the area where their businesses are located, to have these Gift Cards. You must live in the USA to add events to the events database and you must have a United States address to bid on these auctions. If you win an auction we need an address so we can mail you the gift cards.
Later next year we'll be releasing a whole new way to enjoy Bidding Reward PointsTM without having to add events. For now, the only way is to help the Neighborhood Events Network add events to their website. It's easy and fun to do.
No. When you have the highest bid, the points are temporally put on-hold and subtracted from your balance, during active auctions. If someone else out bids you, the points on-hold are automatically added back to your balance. You DO NOT lose any points if you do not win an auction.
According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), rewards may be taxable as income. The types of rewards and the way in which you receive them determine whether they are considered taxable. In many cases, the rewards are viewed by the IRS as a discount, not as income. The best suggestion is to check with your tax adviser for a definitive answer.
