Alright, there's this new service called Unwired Buyer that lets you bid/check on your watched ebay auctions from your cell phone, so you can place bids wherever you are, without a computer!
They are certified by ebay, link.
A few months ago they began a $10 promotion, but just this week it's now a $20 promotion.
How can you get the $20?
Sign up on their site and provide your ebay login info (they are legit, ebay themselves support this project, mentioned at http://www2.ebay.com/aw/core/200512200932572.html )
Add an auction to your ebay watch list.
Update your watch list at unwiredbuyer.com
They will call you 3 minutes before the auction ends to confirm/add bids and check the status of the auction.
Make 1 bid by phone (you don't need to win)
You will receive an email from them confirming the bonus payment.
You will receive $20 in 1-2 days in paypal
I just did it this morning, bid once to purposely lose the auction, and I received my payment in 1 hour.
If you want an extra $2.50, PM me with your email and they will email you a referral link. Signup through that and we will 50/50 the $5 bonus that I get.
