Our first-ever online Bids for Bargains auction is going on through Friday, July 18. There are all sorts of items to bid on, including golf memberships, movie passes, even a car! Here are a few items that you can buy at a big discount (because it's Bids for Bargains, and everything always sells for less during Bids for Bargains) and then use as terrific gifts for your loved ones!

B&B Theatres Main Street Cinema 8 in Hannibal has put together a great package that includes two adult admissions and two orders of popcorn each month for a year! That's a lot of date nights. Everyone enjoys going to the movies, but it can get costly to attend regularly. This package would not only be a lot of fun, but can save you a ton of money.

It's the season for outdoor cooking. The grill featured on Bids for Bargains is a Char-Broil Four-Burner Infrared Gas Grill, provided by Sears Hometown Store in Hannibal. A grill is one of those gifts that not only benefits the receiver, but becomes almost a gift for the entire family.

There are two bows for sale during Bids for Bargains. One is a Hoyt Carbon Element Bow from Butch's Sports World. The other is a BowTech Carbon Knight Bow With RAK Kit from Quincy Bow Pro. If there's a hunter in your life, you should at least take a look at the bows.

Of course there are plenty of other items for sale during Bids for Bargains, too, and almost everything could be a gift for the right person. There are massage packages available, fitness memberships, a mower and even a chance to be on the radio as a guest DJ for a day. Head over to Seize the Deal and check out the online Bids for Bargains auction to see all the cool items that are for sale.
