Over 1,300 items will fly off the auction block in Swift Current today and find new homes.

The final day for the Sweetheart of a Deal Online Auction on Swift Current Online is underway with items beginning to close at 9 a.m.

Over 400 items as of last night in the auction still didn't have bids allowing customers a chance to score deals at a fraction of their retail value.

Morgan Butler, station and general manager for Golden West Broadcasting's Swift Current centre, said some of the products without bids range from ice augers, swim passes, restaurant gift cards, hotel stays, and more.

"If you haven't had a chance to look at the auction, you need to go fast because those items won't have any bids for much longer," she said. "Those that get the opportunity to bid on them will get the chance to have an awesome deal."

Yesterday saw over 700 bids placed, bringing the seven-day total to over 3,700. The bidding pace will only increase throughout today as shoppers make their last-minute pitches to buy items. One way to ensure you win the bidding wars.

"I know that a lot of people will be at work tomorrow while bids are closing and that's why we have that proxy bidding option," she said. "For example, an item retails at $100 and you think my highest bid that I will go is $70. You can put in the proxy bid of $70 and it will outbid anybody who may come along in the day to bid up your current bid."

The Swift Current auction has staggered closing times with the final item closing around 4 p.m.
