I have had 2 cubes for along time, and have never quite found out what they are or if they are worth anything, so I figured I would ask you guys;

The first is a "Aloft Cube" (pic below, sorry my computer will not let me crop it :( ), which on one side says'Aloft, A vision of W Hotels' On the entire side, and with that same thing on the centers of four other sides, and the last one has the old Rubik's logo. Alll I know is that it is givenm away at Aloft special events.

The other is an 'IBM Cube', (sorry, no pics.) Which has 4 shades of blue as stickers for four of the sides, one is white, and the other is a blue IBM logo. I have found absolutly nothing about these either online or on google.

Any information on either of these cube would be appreciated, esspecialy if they are worth something :D Also tell me if I should try and post better photos.

These look like promo cubes. I don't think IBM needs introduction, and Aloft is most probably a hotel brand: aloft.starwoodhotels.com. Hope this helps.

I was going to say promotional cubes are a dime a dozen, but that was last years prices. The problem with these is there are just so many out there that they have become almost worth only the paper the stickers are printed on.

A few exceptions are still the McDonald's puzzle from the 80's, and maybe the pacman one.

But hey, if you are out there to sell them-well then just put them up and see if someone bids. You never know, you may find an Aloft fanatic that just can't live without that cube who will offer up millions.

In the mean time, if you have them because you want them...then they are extremely valuable! :D
