Last updated at 06:56, Wednesday, 19 December 2012
A DELIGHTED Barrow winner of the latest Evening Mail iPad reverse auction says the gadget is the first thing she has ever won.
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.
