Tools, electronics, jewelry, gift certificates, cosmetics, CDs, DVDs, Titans gear … there's something for everyone to bid on during the PeayBay auction opening this week.

Starting at 8 a.m., July 1, you can log on to the Employee Incentive Program homepage at http://peaybay.apsu.edu/, check out the “PeayBay Prizes” and place your bids with your accumulated Peay Pride Points.

University staffers have been earning points since the program was kicked off in January. According to Web/Internet Specialist Reggie Wooden, a total of 3,341 points have been awarded. Most people have about nine points in their PeayBay bank. Eighty-three percent of eligible employees have received points.

You have until Wednesday, June 30, to award and/or receive Peay Pride Points, which are given for excellent employee performance, in time for the July auction, which lasts until 4:30 p.m., July 22.

To place a bid, simply log on to the EIP homepage and click the “Bid” link next to each prize you want to bid on. There will be a drop-down list (or “Buy Now” link) displaying the minimum points that can be assigned to the prize. Trish Halstead, chair of the EIP Committee, says, “You cannot bid more points than you have in your point bank, so remember to check your bid often.”

During the timeframe of the auction, the PeayBay Web site will be accessible to off-campus computers, so you will be able to bid from home.

At the end of the three-week bidding process, the highest bidder wins each prize. Once your bid is awarded, you no longer have those points in your bank. If you were outbid, you keep those unused points, and they remain in your point bank for use in the December auction.
