How did folks bid for BFS? Do we look up or search for it, or Spirit sends invited email for bidding?

You should get a message from [email protected] between three and seven days before your flight with a link to bid.

Can I just say these guys are either stupidly hilarious, yet super shady. When I originally got the seat bid email the minimum was $15, so I bid that. Then a day prior to the flight I got an email saying I had been outbid. I was like oh well, but still clicked on the link to view/modify the bid. The minimum at that point WAS 7 DOLLARS!? So I adjusted down my bid to $7 because why not at that point right? 3 hours before departure my bid was accepted and ended up in a BFS for less than my original bid. Still can’t figure that one out based on those emails…
