Ben & Jerry's Homemade Holdings, Inc. is up for grabs!  That's right you can buy controlling ownership of the world's greatest ice cream company, for no less than $250 million dollars. (subject to shareholder and director approval.)  Make your bid now and you could be the next Ben & Jerry's chairman of the board!  Think about it, you'll be the richest person in the world in both ice cream and social activism.
But hurry, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield can't hold out much longer or they might get sued by their shareholders for trying to protect the environment and the community with their company instead of making a quick buck.  Huge multinational corporations are trying to buy Ben & Jerry's so they can use its good name to push their soulless products; and a lot of shareholders want them to sell out, instead of protecting all that good stuff Ben & Jerry's stands for.

Bid efficiently with Proxy Bidding here's how it works:
Your maximum bid is kept secret, and it's not necessarily what you'll pay. eBay will bid on your behalf (which is called proxy bidding) by steadily increasing your bid by small increments until your maximum is reached.
Why? Because it means you don't have to monitor the auction as it unfolds. You also don't have to worry about being outbid at the very last minute unless someone bids over your maximum dollar amount. Want more details? Check out an example of proxy bidding.
Choose your maximum carefully, though, as you won't be able to reduce it later.

Your bid is a contract
Only place a bid if you're serious about buying the item; if you're the winning bidder, you will enter into a legally binding contract to purchase the item from the seller.
