Our friends at Seize the Deal are putting on an incredible online auction right now, offering goods and services from businesses in the Tyler-Longview area. We’re talking about more than 35 items up grabs, all with starting bids at 60% off their retail value.

Seize the Deal is our very own digital marketplace featuring only local businesses. And, we invite you to take part in our live auction right now.

Don't wait! The auction closes at 7 p.m. Friday (Sept. 27).

You can bid on all kinds of items and services from East Texas businesses, from day spa packages, car washes for a year, furniture shopping sprees, an awesome outdoor fire pit and much more.

Got questions? We've got answers.

Will I be able to see everyone’s bids?

Yes. It is a live auction and bids will appear in the items’ bid history. While you can see the bid, you will not be able to see the bidder.

Will I be notified if someone’s bid is greater than mine?

Yes. You will be asked to give a maximum bid amount for every bid you make. The auction site will automatically bid on your behalf until the maximum is reached (if necessary). When another bid passes your maximum bid amount, you will be notified via email.

How long can I wait to claim my item?

You will have five days to pay. If it isn’t paid for within those five days, we will contact the second-highest bidder.
