10 Weirdest “One Weird Trick” Ads: Revealed: How People Are Paying Less Than $24 for a Michael Kors Bag
The Michael Kors leather tote bag pictured in the ad sells for around $300. But people are buying them brand new for less than $24! They’re also buying new iPads for $23.42 and HDTVs for $54.
How is this possible? Click the ad and the one weird trick is revealed: You’re directed to an online auction site. Not eBay (EBAY), but one where the bidders pay 60 cents every time they lose a bid. So losing a bidding war doesn’t just mean losing that cheap iPad, it means you’re also out the money you spent trying to get it.
