/24-7PressRelease/ - CORONA, CA, January 18, 2006 - One thing's for certain - Joan Snyder of Woodlyn, PA, will be visiting Usellit4free.com a lot more often. Snyder won the Grand Prize in the Usellit4free.com (USiFF) sweepstakes, picking up a 60GB iPod and $1,000 worth of iTunes.
"We had a tremendous response to our sweepstakes, and we're very happy for Joan and her big win," says Rene Holliday, founder of Usellit4free.com. "The volume of participants was staggering, and it just goes to show how popular USiFF has become in the last year."
Since March 2005, USiFF's one-of-a-kind auction concept - where the user pays auction fees only for successfully sold articles - has proved to be a unique attraction, and the number of entries in the sweepstakes - over 10,000 - proves its popularity. Snyder, chosen at random from those entries, will receive her iPod within the next couple of days, says Holliday.
Rene and Teri Holliday founded USiFF out of personal experience. "When a family member passed away, we looked to auction some household items online to raise money for services," says Holliday. "That was when we realized the costs associated with unsuccessful auctions." The Hollidays did not see why the auction company should be paid for unsuccessful auctions, and USiFF was founded subsequently on that model.
"So far, the USiFF model has proven immensely successful, and thousands of users like Joan are the reason we've grown so much in the last few months," says Holliday. "The sweepstakes and the Grand Prize were our way of saying Thank You to our customers.""
Usellit4free.com (USiFF), developed in early 2005, is an online auction alternative, eliminating many of the hidden charges and auction fees that other web sites levy. At USiFF, auction fees are charged only when an item sells successfully. For more information, please visit http://www.usiff.com.
