How to Bid?  

When you see a piece announced on air for bidding, call us immediately:

  • 550-8484 in Anchorage
  • 1-800-478-5256 outside Anchorage, toll-free

We have a phone bank of 8 to take your call and bid with you. If you don’t get through, hang up and keep trying — many times bidders on the phone will drop out as prices rise, thus freeing a phone line for a new bidder.

NOTE: Our TV signal is slightly delayed from actual events in the studio — up to several seconds. Therefore, turn down your TV’s volume while on the phone and simply listen to and talk with your bidding operator. Listen to your phone helper not to your television. They will keep you informed of current bids.

If you are the final high bidder, you will receive a phone call back within one hour to take your payment information.  You will be able to pick up items here in the studio starting Monday, May 5th or items can be mailed to you (with an additional fee) within a week.

 And if you bid greater than the package’s value tonight – do an overbid, you will get a DVD or Blue Ray of “Aurora- Alaska’s Great Northern Lights” complimentary of Alaska Naturally, Incorporated. ‘Aurora – Alaska’s Great Northern Lights’ will take you on a journey across Alaska’s magnificent vistas, under our cold and clear winter nights. Lacking sun six months of the year, Alaska allows for the most spectacular and unequaled viewing of Aurora Borealis in the world. And when the moon and sun change seasons, our full moon can last 20 – 24 hours. Combine this with Alaska’s snow covered mountains, star studded skies and colorful aurora, and you can enjoy moments of extraordinary lighting which are seldom seen.
