Look carefully... see anything interesting??

The $5.74 price tag?


(That's ME btw)

(oops, my screenshot accidentally captured me changing the volume lol)

(and no, this is not an ad. I am posting out of pure excitement!)

YES! I bought a Burberry clutch for only $5.74!!!!!

So a few days ago, I stumbled on this website called JoJolie where it's an auction based system to buy authentic designer purses for CHEAP. Like ridiculously cheap. This clutch originally retailed for $895 (in my head I'm thinking yeah right.... who'd pay that much for this small thing??) and online it currently retails for $399.95 cheapest price on eBay. The only thing is it costs a little under a $1 to bid each time and you get 5 free bids if I'm not mistaken when you sign up.

I used a total of 2 of my free bids tonight and won this damn thing.

I couldn't believe it.

A lot of it is luck and a lot of it is timing, ladies. This was only my second attempt using this system. My first being 2 days ago where I wasted a click on accident when trying to refresh the page, and then someone outbid me and the auction ended.

Anyways, a small part of me is expecting this to me some crazy scam because this sounds too good to be true.

Go sign up under me please so I can get some free bids :]

*UPDATE* I have received my clutch and it is indeed 100% authentic! SO awesome!

Im so glad to be reading this! I stumbled across this website tonight and think its amazing!! Of course I am a VERY skeptical person so I came across your blog while researching if this was a legit website. The fact that they are affiliated with comforts me because of how well known/trusted amazon is. Im waiting til I see a bag I really like and I cant wait to start my bidding! thanks for sharing your experience!! and you have fabulous taste!

Wow, congrats on the win Liang.

I looked at dime-divas and that site is completely unsecure. When you register or login, it's not a secure connection, so your password can be intercepted. I'd be wary of using this site.

With you get the padlock/blue bar when register or login, which tells you the site is secure.

This site is a scam. I just bid and watched the clock go from 013 seconds left to bid to 025. I like a dummy got more bids. It still is on and it was supposed to end at 7:00 CST. WTH

Liang said...

It goes up in seconds because every time someone bids, it adds 10 seconds, so no, it's not a scam.

Most bids that end up 7 p.m. usually go on until 10 or 11 because people keep bidding. You only win if you're lucky enough to be the last one who bid.
