Official rules, found at eBay, are below:
How to Play the $1.00 Holiday Doorbusters Event: Over the course of each day during the Promotion Period, Sponsor will hide one hundred one (101) item listings on the eBay Site(s) (each, a "Hidden Listing"). Each day, Sponsor will post a clue related to each such Hidden Listing (the point at which the Hidden Listing and corresponding clue are posted during each day of the Entry Period shall be determined by Sponsor in its sole and exclusive discretion) at http://eBay.promotionexpert.com/doorbuster/index.html (the "Promotion Site"). Eligible Participants will be required to think of an answer to the clue to help guide them through a search of the eBay Site(s) for the featured Hidden Listing. The first Eligible Participant to find each Hidden Listing, click "Buy It Now," follow the instructions provided, and successfully complete the purchase will secure the Hidden Listing item (pending verification of his/her status as an Eligible Participant). All Hidden Listings will be priced at $1.00. Limit of one (1) eBay $1.00 Holiday Doorbusters Event Hidden Listing purchase per person per eBay User ID per household during the Promotion Period. Each Hidden Listing will remain on the eBay Site(s) until it is found or until the Promotion Period has ended, at which point the Hidden Listing will be removed. Since the Approximate Retail Value (ARV) of an "Ultimate Deal" item exceeds $600, a U.S. purchaser will be required to supply his/her social security number for tax purposes and will receive an IRS Form 1099 for the ARV of the "Ultimate Deal" item purchased.
