ChikaPowWow!

  • Sharebar

The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the name of the site was “ChikaPowWow“?? I didn’t know if I should laugh or frown because I found the name pretty amusing and weird at the same time. What does it mean? What is this website about? To be honest, my first guess would have had something to do with dogs. But oh how wrong I was.

ChikaPowWow website

www.ChikaPowWow.com is, quite simply, a bidding website that is different from the rest because they emphasize on integrity. Most of the items offered are technology and lifestyle-related, flown all the way here from the USA. That’s definitely good news for tech-geeks, because we all know how long it takes (sometimes never) for the latest tech products to reach our Malaysian shores. According to the newly released website, auctioning for items is as easy as 1, 2, 3. We first have to choose the product that we like, purchase ‘Chika‘ tokens and start to ‘Pow‘ or bid. I have looked at some of the items in the auction list and would you believe it that most of the items had an increase of only 10sen per bid! If we’re lucky, we could get items that are worth hundreds or dollars at just a few dollars. Isn’t that enough reason to ‘Wow‘? ;)

Easy steps to play

Everyone will be subjected to a fair playing ground with this website because they impose a limit to the amount of bids for certain big tech items, say only 100 bids for one particular item. This way, no one person will get to monopolize the bid! Here is a snapshot of some items in auction right now. I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly eyeing the New iPad at only RM0! That’s right, if I win the bid, I will get the iPad for practically nothing.

Auction items

In short, ChikaPowWow.comaims to provide an alternative shopping experience to users by giving them a chance to grab great products at great offers. They live by the mantra “Fun, Excitement and Bargain!”. It is with websites like these that we Malaysians will get the chance to own new and innovative products are not not available in our country.

    The mechanics of the bidding is not without risk though. Firstly not all deals come with the “Buy Now Auction”, BNA, which enables you to least have the option to buy it even if you lose.

    In deals without the ‘Buy Now Auction’ you will lose any of the Chickas you’ve committed by clicking if you don’t actually win the bid.

    In summary you might end up paying for another persons’ item instead of winning a deal. In this case it’s sort of like gambling where your risk is the bid money ala ‘Chickas’.

      You’re absolutely right.. There’s certainly a level of risk there, which means one has to be very careful and strategize in bidding to ensure that the chikas don’t go to waste. I have learnt a few lessons of my own to be honest..
