I was recently introduced to a new website that I have quickly become addicted to. It’s called YouNeverLose.com. YouNeverLose.com is an amazing new website where you can buy gift cards at up to 95% off of retail prices. Yes, I said 95% off!!! The beauty of this site is just like the name says – YOU NEVER LOSE.
Here’s how- Once you sign up for a FREE account on YouNeverLose.com you can purchase gift cards to many retailers you would normally shop at anyway such as Sears, Gap, Old Navy, Kmart, Costco, LandsEnd, and more. You pay face value for these gift cards and they are shipped to you for FREE. I purchased a $25 Bath and Body Works gift card for $25. So I spent $25 but got a $25 gift card. I ordered my gift card on late in the day on 1/26 and was very surprised when I received it on 1/30. Not bad considering there was a weekend in between! (You receive the same dollar value gift card that you paid for, so you never lose any money. The reward points are a nice bonus that you can potentially win more cards with.)
Now you are probably wondering how you can get gift cards for up to 95% off. When you purchase your gift cards you are given reward points- 1 point per dollar you spend. So for my $25 Bath and Body Works gift card I received 25 reward points in my YouNeverLose.com account. I was then able to use those 25 points to bid in auctions on YouNeverLose.com. Each reward point raises the bid by $.01.
The real action comes in the last minute or so of the auction. When there is 20 seconds or less left and someone places a bid it adds 20 more seconds to the clock. The way to win is to have no one else place a bid after your bid and let the clock run down. Some of the auctions can really get into a bidding war but they all end pretty low. See the picture below. Someone won a $50 Amazon gift card for only $.03 (plus a $5 service fee)!!! Someone else won a $25 Target gift card for only $.09! (plus a $5 service fee)!! *NOTE* They have now lowered the service fee to only $2 on items you win!
No I didn’t win anything yet but I’ll plan on buying more gift cards to get more points. I figure I’ll use the gift cards anyway so I really have nothing to lose. That really is the beauty of this website. I don’t mind that I didn’t win anything yet because I had fun bidding and I didn’t lose anything since I still have my $25 gift card that I paid $25 for.
UPDATE!!!! I WON!!!! I bought a $25 Old Navy Gift Card and used those points to bid on a $25 Mastercard Gift Card. I ended up winning the Mastercard Gift Card for $1.44!!!!

Here are my tips for winning-
1. Follow a few auctions first and get a feel for how the action goes. Some people like to bid with 1 second left. Some people like to bid at the 20 second mark and always be the highest bidder. Figure out your best strategy.
2. Learn who the regulars are and don’t bid against them. There are some regulars to seem to have a huge amount of reward points and bid more aggressively. Don’t chase after them as it’s hard to beat them. There are plenty of other auctions to bid on so take your time, have fun!
3. If you need to buy any big ticket items at Sears or Kmart, but Sears or Kmart gift cards from YouNeverLose.com. It will give you lots of reward points to bid with and your odds of winning other gift cards will be better. For example, imagine if you were buying a $400 dishwasher at Sears anyway. Why not buy FOUR $100 Gift Cards from YouNeverLose.com to pay for your dishwasher? That would give you the $400 in Sears gift cards you need to buy the dishwasher BUT you would ALSO get 400 points to bid with. Imagine all the gift cards you could win with 400 points?!?!
4. Don’t buy gift cards you won’t use, give as a gift, or need. If you do, you’ll regret it. The beauty of YouNeverLose.com is that you are buying something you would use anyway and getting reward points as a bonus. If you buy a gift card for a store you don’t shop at or have near you then you will never use it. I LOVE to shop at Bath and Body Works plus it always makes a great gift so that is one of the cards I bought. I also buy the kids’ clothes at Old Navy so I bought a card there, too. Plus the Old Navy card can be used at GAP, too. 🙂
I have received every card I have purchased and won very fast. I have used all of the cards and they all are legit, valid gift cards with no problems. This is a 100% legit company and I love bidding on their auctions. This started out as just a website review but now that I have spent the initial points they gave me to try the website and bid with, I am now a huge fan. I now purchase gift cards to all the stores I shop in because I know I will use them anyway. Check it out for yourself! Good luck!
