Barrow iPad auction winner bid ‘on a whim’

A DELIGHTED Barrow winner of the latest Evening Mail iPad reverse auction says the gadget is the first thing she has ever won.

WINNER: Evening Mail reverse auction winner Lynsey Miller with her daughter Bethany after receiving her iPad prize JON GRANGER REF: 50042417B000

Lynsey Miller, from Plymouth Street, Walney, secured her prize with a bid of 5p.

Miss Miller, 27, entered ‘on a whim’, on Sunday, December 9, and says she never expected to win.

“I got a reply saying you have the winning bid, but I thought nothing of it.

“When I got the call to say I had won on Monday morning I was actually wrapping Christmas presents. I was too shocked to carry on after,” she said.

To win the auction the competitors have to enter the lowest unique bid.

“It was the first time I have ever entered anything like this, but I don’t have a laptop and I can’t afford to buy one so I’m always borrowing my daughter’s. I think I will try my luck again in the future,” said Miss Miller.

The mum-of-three also turns 28 on January 1, and the iPad will serve as a Christmas and birthday treat rolled into one.

She said: “It will be my Christmas present to myself. It is definitely the best 5p I have ever spent!”

The next reverse auction is now under way and the winner will receive a 16gb iPhone 5.

l People have until midnight tomorrow to enter the Evening Mail’s latest reverse auction to win an iPhone 5 in time for Christmas. To enter go to www.nwemail.co.uk. Full terms and conditions can also be found on our website.
