All I wanna know is who is gonna get the 2-3% in payment fees for the $750,000+ lol - Reminds me of some stories I have heard of doctors buying houses on credit cards for the cash back options.

Just read another story on Wired.com and the bidding sits at $1.6 million.

If I break my piggy bank and give my Woolworths christmas voucher I have 5.46... so who's with me?

Yep, the reserve has been met (Current bid: US $1,651,900.00)...

I could throw in a couple of Christmas vouchers I have to the tune of 40 if that helps....

Looks like SOLD [signonsandiego.com]

Can someone remind me to check up on this transaction in a few months time.

I would not be surprised if its absolute b#@;x>=*

Crazier and more successfull PR stunts have been used to drive traffic, trust me as I have been part of 1 or 2:)

Looks like PR stunt:

Final bids for real estate posted on eBay aren't binding.

"It's up to the seller and the high bidder to negotiate how they are going to consummate the deal"

"They'll close the deal offline."

Although there's been interest in the property over the years, no one ever met the asking price much less offered more than twice that price until it was posted on eBay.
