Bianca, Dan & Ben turn paper clip into $15k giveaway

Former Editor & Content Director

The Gold Coast Hit90.9 Breakfast team, Bianca, Dan & Ben, have completed a multi-step trade to turn a paper clip into something far more valuable for a listener.

The promotion was based on a story from Canadian blogger Kyle MacDonald, who in 2006 undertook a series of online trades to upgrade a paper clip. After 14 trades, he ended up with a house.

In the case of the Gold Coast Breakfast show, they went from paper clip to novelty Christmas earrings. From there it was a banksia scent pod, second-hand bike with a lock, a boat licence course, black-heeled Ugg Boots, pest & termite inspection, signed 2020 Queensland Origin jersey, 2 x 12-month Gold EMF memberships, a five-day guided 4×4 adventure, 6kW solar system and installation by Apex Renewables, 2009 Volkswagen Caddy, $15,000 diamond ring by The Diamond Vault, and finally a zero-commission and marketing package worth $28,000 from REMAX.

The prize was then auctioned off for $15,000, which ended up in the hands of listener and disability services worker Monique.
