The Auction Squirrel announced on their website that they have merged with BidMyDreams, another penny auction site. Auction Squirrel also stated that their closure was due to, "as some of you know" a "family crisis," unless the family crisis was running out of money, this is news to us. I never saw The Squirrel say anywhere that their closing was due to a family crisis.
This is a bright spot for Auction Squirrel customers because bids will be transferred and honored by BidMyDreams. Also, all Squirrel customers to register with BidMyDreams before Oct. 31st will receive 5 free bids.
