How to play Pick The Price & tips for winning

What is it?  Pick The Price (PTP) is a game that challenges you to predict the ending prices of Pricebenders auctions—with the ultimate objective being to score the highest point total for your predictions.

For example, pick the exact winning price and you’ll score 100 points.  For each cent you’re off on your prediction (either over OR under), subtract 1 point (maximum 100).

Examples:

  • Winning price is $10.00.  You predicted $10.00.  You score 100 points.
  • Winning price is $10.00.  You predicted $9.90.  You score 90 points.
  • Winning price is $10.00.  You predicted $10.50.  You score 50 points.
  • Winning price is $10.00.  You predicted $9.05.  You score 5 points.
  • Winning price is $10.00.  You predicted $9.00.  Zero points scored.

SIDEKICKS

Boost your total score further by earning bonus points through Sidekicks.  There are six different Sidekicks available, which not only earn you bonus points to help you win, but make playing PTP more challenging and more fun!  Note that each activation of a Sidekick costs 1 TCredit.

 


WEEKLY ZACKPOT

To win a share of the big weekly PTP Zackpot (minimum 1500 TCredits), just post a top 200 score sometime during the week (Monday through Sunday). Of the top 200 scores posted for the week, the top 10 scorers will receive 5 shares of the pot. The next 40 top scorers will receive 3 shares of the pot.  Each of the 150 other top scorers will receive 1 share. In the case of a tie, the entry with the earliest entry wins.

Enter as many auctions as you wish (minimum 1 TCredit per entry/auction) with no limit on how many Zackpot shares you can win!  Plus, for each TCredit spent playing PTP, you’ll earn earn 5 MRP (Member Rewards Points) redeemable on thousands of products at TripleClicks.  If you’re also an SFI affiliate, you’ll also earn 1 VersaPoint for each TCredit spent playing PTP.

SPECIAL NOTES & FEATURES

  • To help you with your prediction, you’re provided the average winning price AND the average auction length (time) for the last five times the item was auctioned.
  • To make PTP fair for all, when you go to enter a game, you’ll be presented with a random auction starting soon. However, if you’re not interested in playing PTP for the auction selected at random for you, you will be allowed to skip it and get a different auction (skip up to three auctions a day).
  • Each PTP week runs Monday through Sunday.  Since all PTP entries must, necessarily, be upcoming auctions, this means that entries on Sundays may cross over into the next week’s contest and Zackpot.  For complete clarity and transparency on this, you will find a link on the entry confirmation screen to a ledger of ALL your entries with a designation for which week’s contest each belongs to.

TIPS

1. The auction type (e.g., Winner Bids Free, Double MRP, etc.) can impact the price, so factor this in.  The auction type is located at the bottom of each auction panel.


BADGES

1. Achieving the highest score for an individual auction earns you the TOP SCORER badge (or an upgraded “X-Times Top Scorer” version of the badge). Add bronze trim with 10 top score finishes. Add silver trim with 20 top score finishes. Add gold trim with 40 top score finishes.

2. Finishing a week with one of the 200 highest score means you win a share of the weekly Zackpot and earns you the WINNER badge (or an upgraded “X-Times Winner” version of the badge). Add bronze trim with 5 top score finishes. Add silver trim with 10 top score finishes. Add gold trim with 25 top score finishes.

3. Achieving the highest score for the previous day earns you the “Yesterday’s High Score” badge (expires in 24 hours).

4. Achieving the highest score during the previous 10 days earns you the “High Score (10 Day)” badge (expires in 10 days or when another player achieves a higher score–whichever comes first)

5. Achieving the highest score during the previous 30 days earns you the “High Score (30 Day)” badge (expires in 30 days or when another player achieves a higher score–whichever comes first)

6. Achieving the highest score during the previous 60 days earns you the “High Score (60 Day)” badge (expires in 60 days or when another player achieves a higher score–whichever comes first)

7. Achieving the highest score during the previous 90 days earns you the “High Score (90 Day)” badge (expires in 90 days or when another player achieves a higher score–whichever comes first)

8. Achieving the highest score all-time earns you the “High Score (all-time)” badge (expires if and when another player achieves a higher score).

9. There is also a PTP Leaderboard badge available for all-time highest scorers (all points scored for all games played). The minimum leaderboard rank to receive a PTP Leaderboard badge is 500. Add bronze trim by achieving a top 200 rank. Add silver trim by achieving a top 50 rank. Add gold trim by achieving a top 10 rank.  You can view the PTP Leaderboard HERE.  Note: So that all players have the opportunity to reach the top of the leaderboard, Prize Points won are reduced by 50% every 30 days. Example: You scored 400 points today.  30 days from now, those points are now worth 200 points. 60 days from now, those points are now worth 100 points. 90 days from now, those points are now worth 50 points.  And so on.  Keep playing to maintain your leaderboard position!
