Frequently Asked Questions

WHEN IS THE AUCTION AND FOR HOW LONG?

Bids4Bargains conducts auctions three times a year, usually around March, July and November.  The radio portion of our auction airs from 8am to noon Tuesday and Wednesday then items remain for sale on bids4bargains.com until they are sold-out.  

HOW CAN I LISTEN AND PARTICIPATE?

The radio auction is broadcast live on KHMO-AM and simulcast on Classic Country, KICK-AM.  You can also listen live via khmoradio.com and kickam1530.com or on RadioPup.  Listen during our broadcasts for phone numbers to call to bid.

Now, we also have bids4bargains.com, where you can view all items up for auction and add additional items to your shopping cart.

HOW DO I BID ON AN AUCTION ITEM?

During auction week, look for the full list of available items here and on khmoradio.com. Simply call one of our hotlines to place your bid on the items you want, or to make a purchase. We will record your bid along with your name and phone number. Then go to Bids4Bargains.com to complete your purchase online, or listen to our broadcast for details on how to pay for your purchases.
