'Drive up the bidding' nghĩa là đẩy giá thầu (cố ý làm tăng giá thầu nhưng không mua; bid up).

Ví dụ
That’s because, while a frontline starter like Jon Lester or John Lackey might be more valuable, there aren’t as many teams in need of one to drive up the bidding.

Ballmer's extensive experience and relationships in the tech industry make him seem a more legitimate candidate to go online-only, so he could be using that threat to drive up the bidding price for regional broadcast TV rights.

The origin of the Korean War was less a Sino-Soviet conspiracy against America than a three-cornered maneuver for dominance within the Communist international order, with Kim Il-sung driving up the bidding to gain support for a program of conquest whose global consequences in the end surprised all of the main participants.

I love hanging out with people that make me forget to look at my phone.

Tôi thích đi chơi với người khiến tôi quên nhìn vào chiếc điện thoại của mình.
