eBay, Course of the Force Team Up to Do Good

Chris Hardwick and Harley Morenstein from Epic Meal Time have a message for you:

Yes, eBay is joining up with Course of the Force to launch auctions to raise money for COTF’s efforts on behalf of the Make-a-Wish Foundation. The first auction is a pre-race series of items up for bid that include running spots in the COTF lightsaber relay. The pre-race auctions will be running today through June 25th, followed by the Official Course of the Force Charity Auctions July 7-21, which will include VIP celebrity events, tickets to shows at San Diego Comic-Con International, COTF memorabilia, and more. (I’ve seen some of the items that’ll be available; you’ll want to bid)

To see what’s available, click here. The same link will bring you to both the pre-race and the main auction, so bookmark it.

You should also know that eBay has more and more nerd-centric collectibles available these days (including the Summer of Superheroes comics auction), and they’ll be at the Course of the Force “conivals,” too, so stop by their booths or at Nerdist’s booth at Comic-Con and check them out.

And good luck with the bidding!

  • As far as buying/saving on eBay goes:

    If you see an item that you want listed in auction format, send the seller a message asking if they will accept $x to end the auction early and sell the item to you. If that doesn’t work, use a sniping service such as Bidball.com to bid for you. It’ll bid in the last few seconds, helping to save $ and avoid shill bidding.

    If there is a particular item that you want that is relatively rare on eBay or goes fast when one is listed, use ebuyersedge.com to set up a saved eBay search for it. You’d get an e-mail whenever a match is listed. You can use the price, category, exclude word, etc. filters to narrow down the results that you get in the e-mails. Excellent for “Buy It Now”s priced right.

    If the item that you’re looking for is difficult to spell, try a misspelling search site like Typojoe.com to find some deals with items that have main keywords misspelled in the title. Other interested buyers may never see them.
