Cornflake Auction gets on the eBay Pulse
March 19th, 2008 by estreet

Here’s a noteworthy eBay Pulse item:

Worth $200,000? The seller states that this item was pulled by eBay as a violation of selling an unpackaged food item.

Q: I’M CONFUSED ABOUT YOUR AUCTION. THE AUCTION I SAW HAD A BID OF OVER $200,000.00. IS THIS THE SAME AUCTION? JANICE Mar-18-08
A: We are the same sellers of that auction, which did reach over $200,000.00 before eBay pulled it off because we were selling unpackaged “food.” This auction is only selling a paper, not food. The coupon can be redeemed after the auction for the Great Illinois Cornflake.

Let’s look at the watchers.

The price of the original listing hit $200,444 with a peak of 8,975 watchers last night at 6:15 pm eBay time. It was relisted at 10:30 pm yesterday, just 4 hours later.

I’ve lived in Illinois for the past 17 years but I’m no authority on the state. I turned to Photoshop to see if it really looked like Illinois. Hmmm…. What do you think?
