In 2001, Changi brought to travellers the first gameshow in an airport. In the Changi auction, “What`s Your Bid”, travellers get to bid for selected retail items available at the airport. The starting bids for items can start as low as 50% off airport retail prices. This means participating travellers can get a good bargain below the normal retail price if no one manages to outbid them. Some of the items up for auction include a Risis Egg (retail price : S$81, starting bid : S$35), a pair of Risis chopsticks (retail price : S$86, starting bid : S$35), a pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses (retail

price : S$152.35, starting bid : S$76), and a Bonia black leather handbag (retail price : S$299.90, starting bid : S$150).

The Changi auction will be held four times every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening beginning from 27 May 2004.

It will end on 25 June 2004.
