Our Seize the Deal Auction is open and bids are now being accepted. It's your opportunity to save up to 60 percent on new merchandise.  Any objections to buying someone a brand new Christmas present at 60 percent off? Here's your chance.

Items up for bids this week include a pair of $500 gift certificates to Alexander Lumber in Owatonna. It's easy to think lumber but there's so much more. Tools, nuts, bolts, screws, flooring and more.

There's also a Powerhouse generator offered by Carquest, retail value is $1,258. These certainly come in handy during not only during thunderstorms but blizzards and ice storms as well.

Three Day Mattress has a bunk bed with a set of mattresses valued at $1,299 that could be yours for 60 percent off.

There's a single season membership to Brooktree Golf Course in Owatonna up for bids.

A Whirlpool dryer from Sorenson's Appliance and TV valued at $799 is another item that will be sold at a big savings.

All you need is a credit card or debit card to make your bid. If you're the high bidder, you'll be notified and then the certificate for your merchandise will mailed to you from Faribault.

To bid, go to the Seize the Deal Auction website.

Bidding ends at 5PM this Friday, November 18.
