if you PM me with your email addy so i can refer you. Ill give you $2.5 of the ref. bonus.
Don't know if everyone has seen this, but It works great and the money is transferred to your paypal account pretty fast.

From SD:
What to do exactly:
1. Go to http://www.unwiredbuyer.com and on the right fill out the registration. Use the same email as your paypal email when you sign up, because that is where they will send the money.
2. Find an auction that is close to being done and add it to your watch list. Since I only wanted the $20 and did not want to acutally buy anything, I found a car auction that was 5 minutes from being over with a price that seemed to be way below reserve price
3. Go to your Unwiredbuyer account and click on "Update Auctions," this should refresh your page and display the item that you just added to your watch list. Make sure "Call Me" is checked on the item.
4. Wait for a call from unwiredbuyer. My call came within a minute of me clicking "Update Auctions," there was only about 4 minutes left when they called me
5. The voice will tell you what auction it's calling about, how much time is left and what the bid is it right now. Then it will give you an option of placing the lowest possible bid, which is what I did. I did win the auction, but the reserve was not met, which is good,
6. You will get an email from support@unwiredbuyer.com confirming that you have used their service and now can get your $20. Follow the link in the email, to confirm.
7. You're done! The money was in my PayPal within minutes of me clicking the confirmation link.

You DON'T have to win the auction to get the 20 bucks. The service will call you when the auction has like 3 mins left, so pick an auction that is about to end soon with a reserve you know you can't meet if you don't want to wait for something you actually want.

And afterwards, you can change all your info if you are paranoid, like me.

tried it myself, waiting for paypal transfer of money to my account. Just be sure you all change your ebay password after and disable them as 3rd party users just incase.

I'm getting the same thing; something must be wrong.
I figured it out. I had to log into ebay.com, because there was one of those "promo pages" after you log in. I suppose the site checks if once you log in, you get sent to the right page. Normally, I just use ebay.ca.

Anyways, once I got in, it said some security measures, blah blah. So, I didn't get squat. I just logged into ebay and changed my password again.

Here is a heads up in case you dont read the rules. The eBay account you use has to have a feedback rating of 10 or more or have been registered for 12 months. I used a new eBay account i had created on the side for this deal and it didn't work cause i had 0 feedback. I went and changed my e-mail address and eBay account to my main eBay account and bid on something again and got the e-mail for the $20 PayPal credit in that e-mail account.

I guess i finally ended up getting a Victoria's Secret gift certificate lol. This one was only $10 though.

I've been registered since 03, and have 30 positive feedback; but it won't let me register. It keeps telling me that the username and password aren't correct.

The eBay requirements dont have anything to do with you registering. Its probably ither a database issue or your username and password aren't correct.

I also had a hard time registering, but got through. Got her done and got the confirm email. It says payment will be made within 1-2 business days. The title in the email says you get $10, but the email itself says $20. It was kinda hard to find something that had a reserve ( i wanted to make sure i didnt win), but search up the laptops area and found one. We shall wait and see if payment goes through. Thanks for the post! :D

I followed the instructions and bid from ebay on a car that was ending. I got the computerized call and didn't win the auction. I only got one email for registering. I see no follow up email telling me I'm getting $20. :confused:

eBay pays them for every auction bid on and won through their service.

ShuttleLuv, i got the email saying i would get the money almost instantly after i hung up the phone... doesn't seem that forwarding the email will work, the link is coded to each specific user. :(

Does it matter that I placed a bid using ebay before the call? That's what I did. I didn't place any bids while on the phone either.
