Use Golden Gavel, our popular online bidding event, to boost awareness for your business and earn advertising credits at the same time. 

Here's how it works: 

  • You trade goods or services for the chance to earn Star Tribune advertising credits
  • Consumers bid on your items in the Golden Gavel event at
  • For items that sell, regardless of bid price, you receive advertising credits for the traded item's full retail value
  • Items that do not sell remain in your inventory
  • Nearly 90% of all advertisers sell at least one item
  • No additional fees apply, and there's no risk!

You'll be featured in $400K of digital and print promotion, including a catalog of items inserted in the Sunday Star Tribune. 

Held twice a year in the Spring and Fall, each Golden Gavel bidding event generates big excitement within the community. The next Golden Gavel will be held March 15-23, 2015. Deadline to participate is February 6, 2015.
