In More Detail
2017 Presidential Inauguration CandidateKey Offer
Each Trump International Washington, D.C. Hotel CandidateKey purchased through www.candidatekey2016.com is assigned to a single (1) presidential candidate. You can purchase a CandidateKey by simply selecting a candidate's name from the market's list of possible presidential contenders and providing the required credit card information. If your candidate is not listed, you can always write-in your favorite candidate and they will be automatically associated to the CandidateKey. (NOTE: A CandidateKey can only have one (1) candidate association and you can only buy one (1) for any given candidate). If your candidate wins the 2016 Presidential election, you use your CandidateKey to purchase a pre-specified room at the Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C. for the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. To repeat, a CandidateKey is used to purchase a room if, and only if your selected presidential candidate wins the 2016 Presidential Election.
Once you own a CandidateKey, you have the following options: If your candidate is in the thick of the race you can just hold your CandidateKey, hoping that you will be in D.C. for the inauguration. On the other hand, if your candidate is in the thick of the race, but for whatever reason you realize you cannot make the trip, you can put your CandidateKey up for sale in the marketplace at a price of your choice (NOTE: CandidateKeys can only be bought and sold in our marketplace). Finally, if your candidate withdraws and you want to purchase a CandidateKey for a different candidate, you can purchase it at the current available price or submit a bid to buy and if none are currently available, hope one of the current owners accepts your bid and sells their CandidateKey to you. CandidateKeys can be instantly bought and sold 24/7 in our marketplace.
The total cost of your CandidateKey is the following: the price of your CandidateKey plus a 20% transaction fee. If, and only if, your candidate becomes the 45th President of the United States, you agree to pay a room rate for a minimum stay that will be determined at a later date. We have a few to choose from! The initial CandidateKey price and transaction fee is charged immediately upon completion of your transaction. It is non-refundable whether your candidate is elected or not. You will not pay the actual room rate, to be determined at a later date, until your Candidate wins the 2016 Presidential Election. To repeat: If your candidate wins the 2016 Presidential Election you will have two main charges: the CandidateKey + the Room Rate, along with any transaction charges. If your candidate loses the 2016 Presidential Election you will have a single (1) non-refundable CandidateKey price charged to your card, along with any transaction charges.
For Example, let's say you purchase a CandidateKey assigned to, 'Will Rodgers'; if Mr. Rodgers wins the 2016 Presidential Election your 'Will Rodgers CandidateKey' enables you to purchase a room at the Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C. for the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. Your total purchase amount will be the CandidateKey price (charged immediately) + the room rate (charged only if Mr. Rodgers wins).
4 Features of the CandidateKey Marketplace
Buying a CandidateKey:
Purchasing a CandidateKey is the smartest way to guarantee yourself a room at the Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C. during the 2017 Presidential Inauguration. If your candidate wins the 2016 Presidential Election, you will be there during the festivities. If your candidate does not make it, you have only lost cost of the CandidateKey. This is insurance for good times.
*CandidateKey prices will fluctuate wildly throughout the Presidential nomination process and elections. Because prices are demand driven (demand being driven by a candidate's performance), typically, the earlier you buy, the less expensive CandidateKey prices will be for the leading contenders.
Bidding on a CandidateKey:
When you make an offer or place a bid to buy a CandidateKey from someone in our market, your bid must be accepted before you actually own the CandidateKey. If your bid is not accepted, you will not own the CandidateKey. You can cancel an offer or bid at any point before your bid is accepted. Please remember, our markets are live 24x7. It is your responsibility to cancel your bids before they are accepted.
If your bid is cancelled or the market has closed prior to your bid being accepted, the funds will be deposited into your account's wallet and will be available for withdrawal. Once you initiate a withdrawal, a check will be mailed to you within twenty (20) days.
Selling a CandidateKey:
If, for whatever reason, you just can't be there for the inauguration festivities, you can put your CandidateKey up for sale (called an offer-to-sell) in our market (and only in our market - no Stubhubs or the likes of eBay) at any point prior to the market closing. This trading transacts in real time. Remember, when you have put a CandidateKey up for sale, it may be purchased within milliseconds. Buying and Selling is open 24/7 until the market closes. You have the ability to remove or modify your sell offers at any point. It is your responsibility to monitor your trading activity.
