Might be worth it to avoid the stress and time wasted, especially if they don't qualify for preregistration. And it's before the sale. More likely if it was after the sale, people shut out and realize how hard it was, would be bidding more?

I don't think it's tax deductible? The money is going to cci through eBay. They're giving proceeds to UNICEF, not the buyer? Usually for auctions, you can write off anything above the value.


That's a good question. They were listed as "Official eBay for Charity listings" and I found this:

Tax deductions for buyers

Donations made using Give At Checkout and Donate Now are tax deductible. Generally, you can't claim a tax deduction for eBay for Charity items you buy. You should consult a tax professional with questions about your specific circumstances.

I would have thought it would be tax deductible but maybe not?

Prize is:
  • 2 four-day passes to SOLD OUT San Diego Comic-Con®
  • Round trip airfare for 2 within the continental United States
  • Hotel accommodations for 2 at Wyndham San Diego Bayside
  • Personal tour of the San Diego Comic Art Gallery with Ted Adams, CEO of IDW Publishing
  • Airport pickup by Traveling Stories with a quick detour to sample a delicious assortment of San Diego treats

Enties require a donation, basically $1 per entry, $10 minimum and bonuses for contributing more. Traveling Stories is a nonprofit that promotes literacy, I first heard about them through SDCC. I should mention that we have donated to them in the past but I don't know any of the people there personally and I have no connection with them. They had something similar last year.

Wow...that is a LOT for a 1 day pass, even if you get 4 of them.  I wonder if you could use one for each day for yourself?  The estimated value listed is $2,000.  Isn't that like 8 times what 4 single day badges would cost?  Ah well...it is for a good cause.

I wondered where they got them.  Does SDCC give out badges to charitable organizations for this purpose?

Something interesting I read while looking at the fine print for the Traveling Stories drawing.  There is a minimum of $10,000 in donations required before the above prizes are awarded.  From their website..the bold is mine:

"Prize:

Subject to a minimum of $10,000 in donation proceeds received during the Drawing Period, the Grand Prize is a 2018 San Diego Comic-Con® Experience by Traveling Stories. In the event less than $10,000 in donation proceeds are received during the Drawing Period, the Organization will split the net donation proceeds from the donations on a 50/50 basis with the qualified Grand Prize ticket holder. As used herein, the term “net donation proceeds” means the gross proceeds received by the Organization from donations for tickets in the Drawing less payment of all Drawing related expenses as determined by the Organization.

Current donations stand at: $3,930   contest ends on June 13, 2018

More money stuff from their website:
"With respect to a non-cash prize, Applicable Law requires that the winner of a non-cash prize valued at $5,000.00 or more pay 25% of the fair market value of the prize to the Organization, which will remit such payment to the IRS. "

Good points, last year they stated the same thing and still gave out the prize even though they didn't hit the 10K mark.
