Ever buy equipment from barter auctions

This is the only way I know how to name this thread. Basically there is a radio station that gets equipment and other goods from local dealers and gives them the full retail price in advertising, then has a website with auctions where they sell the stuff. The dealer I buy redmax stuff from put up a couple string trimmers and got advertising for them. I bid on one and won it for $180 went to the radio station and picked up a voucher for the trimmer and took it to the dealer and picked up the trimmer brand new with warranty. Saved about $100 seems like a good deal for everyone in my opinion. Wonder if you put up like a month of mowing if you could end up keeping customers after there month they won on a auction.
