A WOMAN is celebrating after winning an iPad mini in a competition for only 8p.

Sarah Ling, 54, of Bacton, Stowmarket, is now the proud owner of the tablet computer, worth £296, after she entered the EADT’s first-ever reverse auction competition.

“Apart from being surprised, I was pleased,” Mrs Ling said.

“I had a text at the time I entered saying I was the lowest bid. I thought there could have been a lower bid later on. I think it will be used generally at home. It is sleek, it is very nice.

“I’m sure there’s loads of exciting things to do on it. I should be using it for email. I will have to experiment with it.”

She had been keeping the win secret from her friends and was waiting until today to tell them.

Mrs Ling, who plays the cello, will be keen to use the iPad mini’s library of creative applications which can be downloaded.

Readers entered the competition by texting in their attempt at the lowest unique bid.

Look out for more unique reverse auctions, with great prizes, in future editions of the EADT.

  • "A WOMAN is celebrating after winning an iPad mini in a competition for only 8p". I do not believe this is exactly true. I believe she offered 8p for it and that was the lowest bid. But she paid for the texts, as did many other people. So the REAL truth is that she paid far more than 8p to acquire this item and that many people paid far more than 8p and gained nothing. Far more accurate?
