WCNY’s TelAuc is a live TV auction featuring 1000s of items you can bid on! It’s easy, fun, and you’ll save lots of money on fantastic finds.
The auction also streams online each night at wcny.org.
First, you’ll need a member number to bid. You can get one for as little as $25. Click here: wcny.org/auctionrenew or call our membership department at 1-877-880-5211 during the auction. It’s best to get your number ahead of time though so you can bid right away – our membership department is available weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The items are presented on four boards: W C N Y with an item number and description to go with each. Our hosts will share the details about each item.
When you see something you like, call the 315-451-9269 and place your bid! Our phone bank operators will ask you for your name, phone number, item # and which board you saw the item on “W, C, N or Y”
After each board opens, our hosts recap all of the board’s items after about 20 minutes. Then, items sell with a 2-minute countdown. Winning bidders will be notified within an hour.
Be sure to watch for steals and specials too!
