PlayStation 3 charity auction -- 2 days left!

Ryan Block, @ryan

Alright everybody, we've only got about two days lef on our charity PS3 auction, which is now up to over a grand. That's pretty rocking, but we've yet to see how much one person REALLY wants this console. Once again, big thanks to our old pals at BoxWave. Here's what you need to know.
  • Real bids only people, this is for charity!
  • Five day auction, no reserve. Where else are you gonna snag a PS3 on Christmas eve?
  • Payment will go directly to Save Darfur, and will be expected to be made within two days of the auction's close.
  • Since most shippers are closed on Christmas eve and Christmas day, we cannot guarantee overnight shipment to you for Christmas day. But you'll have secured the PS3, and we'll overnight it to you immediately thereafter. Hell, we'll even pay shipping.
As per some legal counsel, the not-so-fine print has changed. This unit is not 100% deductible -- it is only deductible less the $500 cost of the unit. Sorry, that's what Johnny Law says, and to him we abide. So if the PS3 sells for $2,000, you get to deduct $1,500. Still, not bad! Plus 100% of the proceeds still go to Save Darfur, so, what do you say? Let the bidding begin!

P.S. -To those who bid but don't win -- don't let that stop you from donating to the charity of your choice this holiday season.
