Bid 'n' Buy

Four contestants were each given $10,000, which in those days was enough to buy a brand-new Mercedez-Benz convertible. They were shown a visual puzzle. The contestants bid against each other for clues to the puzzle using their $10,000 stakes. A contestant who successfully bid on three clues during a game could keep any remaining money they had. The contestant who correctly guessed the answer to the picture puzzle would win a major prize, like a new car or a vacation.

Bid 'n' Buy Premiered:

July, 1958
