I can't believe there was an ad on TV for this site... this site is a scam and uses illegal methods to suck you into their crappy auctioning. You hardly ever win anything..

My father wins 3 prizes a day, every day... although he spends about as much as he earns from the products (ALOT), it is still great fun and definitely possible to win amazing prizes (just won an ipad 2 for 150 bucks). If you don't like the model of the site then don't pay into it...but do not call it a scam or untrustworthy because you lost 30 bucks trying to win something and failed. Additionally, since you can use all the money you spend on bids towards just buying the item at retail, the worst case scenario is that you pay full price for what your bidding on.

Quibids.com submits to an independent auditing firm in order to establish their trustworthiness. They have passed this audit and the results show that it is above board and they've posted this info on their website. It is legitimate, and I have won a $25.00 gift certificate with just 1 bid! It is a gambling site, however, and not an auction site. You pay 60 cents for a bid (poker chip, in gambling parlance) and each chip that is bet will add 15 seconds to the betting clock. It seems to be misleading, until you comprehend what this site is and how to place your wagers.

I've been on QuiBids for about 2 years, and have won more than 4 items. I've never had a problem with deliveries or anything else here. Items won: Kid's basketball set my cost $2.37 iPod Nano ( current gen) my cost $9.98 Leatherman tool my cost ~ $6.50 Of course there's a $5 shipping charge, but heck, a brand new Nano ( was a great Christmas gift) for less that $10? Puhleeeze! All items delivered, delivery a bit slow, but it was delivered. No Spam, or spyware that I can detect. Possibility of shills, which is why I rate it untrustworthy for kids. If you can keep your head about things, you'll do okay.

If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. This site sounds alot like Beezid and even the commercials were very similar. My opinion is to stay away from this site and buy from trusted sources. Just because it has a commercial does not mean it's trustworthy.

Look, the site isn't a scam. I have bided and WON! You may not know what your getting in to. You basically pay .60 cents a bid. If you use that bid but don't win the item, you just lost .60 cents unless you decided to put that money toward the purchase of that item. You can make as many bids as you want, but if you get up to the price of the item, it will stop you and tell you to just purchase it. I think some of these people didn't know what they were doing, and lost there money. They tired to get the most expensive things first. You just can't do it. you lose. You have to practice with the $10 gas cars. Learn to bid. I won lots of gas cards for 1 bid. Some I just purchased after putting so many bids into an item. Just make sure you really want the item before you start and you can't loose. If somebody beats you in the bid, just purchase the item. No lose that way. I'm way ahead right now, and no feelings of guilt. I'm aware that each bid even they show it as .01 cent. So I just don't bid and keep biding like it is one cent. I bed like it is .60 cents and for every bid I make I multiply that by 60.

When bidding in auctions on QuiBids, you never have to lose! Though bids placed in auctions are not returned, you never have to lose an investment. If you win an auction, you will have the opportunity to obtain the item for up to 90% off retail! If you lose in an auction, the Buy Now feature is available in every auction so that you can apply your investment towards the total value of the item. For example, if you bid an investment of $30 in an auction for an item valued at $50 and do not win, you may apply this investment towards the Value Price of an item when utilizing the Buy Now feature. So, in this case you have the opportunity to pay an additional $20 to receive the item at it's valued price. This feature ensures that QuiBids users always have the option to receive an item when participating in an auction, and never have to lose any money invested. By winning auctions and always utilizing the Buy Now feature in auctions that are not won, you will always be saving money on QuiBids. Hopefully this helps provide some clarification regarding your issue! Please don't hesitate to contact support@quibids.com with any other questions or concerns you may have. Sincerely, Quibids Team

Quibids is not a scam, and the site explains in detail how it works and there is a risk involved, as it is a bidding site. I have won a few items that are very expensive for a fraction of the cost, and they were shipped within days to my home. I recommend spending time studying the site, and learning how and when to bid and you will be a successful winner. Again, there is a risk involved, and thats what scares many people away from this site. There are a lot of bad, scamming, fraudulent sites on the internet, but this one is far from a scam.

Its not a scam but it cost money to place a bid, that money is not refundable whether you get that item or not. If you have mad clicking skills for bidding at the last second its perfectly fine.

I actually enjoy penny auctions. It's not a bad site as much as it's just not for everyone. Won a tv for $37 the other day and resold it for $600. It's like anything like this. It takes patience and knowing what you're doing. We go to auctions all the time and are avid ebay sellers so it would only make sense that this would be right up our alley, BUT like I already said, it's not for EVERYONE.

I question the negative rating. I've been using the website for a while not and have made more than my money back in $15 gift cards that only cost me $2. I have also received all my items well within the 10 business days that is promised. This site is more than fair to the individual. The company also is 'shill' bidding. I'm not ignorant to think that they don't but they don't even need to. They make money on the bigger items with or with out shill bidding. Either way you can still get these items at retail price or less. Its fair to the customer and its fair as a business. Nothing wrong with this site, just these their help page.
