National Day is coming and tickets to this year's parade have hit eBay and Yahoo! Auctions. The tickets are given out free but because they are so highly sought after, some enterprising ticket holders have decided to cash out by selling them. I decided to go to eBay and Yahoo! Auctions to check out some "good" buys.
wsonica is selling four yellow sector NDP 2006 actual day tickets on eBay. She writes, "On sale are 4 tickets to NDP (National Day Parade) 2006 on 9 August. (serial no. 032923-032926) Selling because I have extras. Seats are located in the yellow sector of the stadium. Here is your chance to catch the last NDP Parade at the National Stadium together with your family and friends!" So far, she has received 32 bids with the highest at S$243!
Another eBay seller is selling his four green sector NDP 2006 actual day tickets because his "family can't go to the parade due to last minute personal matter." The current bid is at S$252! He has received 11 bids so far.
Tickets for the Preview parade are also on sale like this one by genlex2004 on Yahoo! Auctions. He is selling two green sector NDP 2006 Preview tickets at S$80 each. The dude also has a sms service to accept orders. How enterprising!
But not everyone is selling their tickets. yiling on Yahoo! Auctions who has two white sector (VIP) NDP 2006 Preview tickets, wants to trade her two VIP tickets with four normal NDP tickets.
And for those of you who do not want to buy NDP tickets, how about getting a NDP 2006 Goody Bag instead? aw jacqueline is selling it for S$25. She writes on Yahoo! Auctions, "NDP Goody Bag comprising of an electric cap studded with mini-light bulbs depicting the Singapore flag. Beautiful especially at night! Also include a Nokia handphone torch light. Truly one of its kind!Other items include a large and durable bagpack, Singapore flag with stand, NDP 2006 tattoo, Pong bong sticks x2, magazine, catalogue, cookies, newater, etc."
Ah the spirit of National Day.
