Hi all,

Doing some inventory clean-up on the Avalon.ph Auction Site. Over 120

purchasing and winning ten (10) items on Avalon.ph!

Don’t feel deterred by the # of items because if you stop and think, the 10
item threshold is not that bad. Bidding and winning 10 items will probably
give your wallet a hit of around P1,500.00 (or potentially much less since
there are items priced in the P50.00-P80.00 range), which is not a bad
amount to spend on great books + a Free Moleskine.

FREE Moleskine Guidelines:

Promo officially starts July 15, 2008. Items bought/won BEFORE July 15, 2008
not counted. The item to be given away is a Moleskine Large Ruled Reporter
ONLY. If the supply of the Moleskine type becomes low (unlikely because I
still have a lot in stock), site users will be notified in advance.

FREE Moleskine offer is valid until July 22, 2008. By July 23, any
purchases is no longer counted in the promo. Transaction must be
closed/fulfilled by July 26, 2008 otherwise buyer loses the freebie offer.
This is to avoid delay in payment, resulting in idle items which defeats my
purpose of freeing up my storage area.

It is perfectly okay to win/purchase the ten lowest price items to get your
free Moleskine. Example, you bid and won ten items worth P50.00 each paying
the amount of P500.00. You will still get your Free Moleskine, but you must
win 10 items by end of promo. Remember that bidding is a binding action, if
by the end of the promo period you ended up with 9 won items (1 item
outbid), you are obligated to complete the transaction for the 9 items
without the free Moleskine (sorry!)

Any disputes/loopholes that will come up in this promo, common sense will
apply. Just e-mail me if there are any questions.

Thanks and happy bidding!
