QuiBids.com Reviews – Legit or Scam?


from 1318 reviews Review It


QuiBids.com is the largest penny auction website currently operating in the United States. Penny auctions have been around for awhile, but have only recently gotten lots of attention from people outside of the penny auction community.

Penny auction websites attract people to them by promising expensive, big ticket items at unbelievably low prices – for example, QuiBids shows a new iPad, which retails at $499 for the most basic model, selling for $22.54.  But this winning bid of $22.54 is misleading.  This isn’t the truth of how much it costs to win that iPad.

The way penny auctions work is that you are only able to bid a single penny at any time during the auction.  However, at QuiBids.com, you must purchase each 1 cent bid for 60 cents.  So an iPad that retails for $499 but was won for the grand total of  2,254 one cent bids (or $22.54) which actually cost 60 cents each means that the iPad just sold for $1352.40.

Though the person who wins the item usually has paid less than retail for what they have received, citing $22.54 as the winning bid is extremely misleading.

So is QuiBids a Scam?

All penny auctions, regardless of reputation, are a bad idea and should be avoided.

First of all, QuiBids.com and other penny auction sites require people to pay for the option to bid, but don’t allow them to bid in increments of their choosing.  This means that QuiBids is forcing the price up and profiting all the while.

On eBay, the seller and buyer have the auction monitored by the website, which is the trusted third party.  On QuiBids.com, there is no trusted third party.  QuiBids is the seller and the auctioneer.  It works in their favor – and their favor only – to drive the price up in these small 1 or 2 cent increments.

QuiBids attempts to redeem themselves by offering you the “By It Now” option, which is when you can take the total amount of your failed bids and apply that toward the retail price of the item you were bidding on.  Say you bid $80 total on an iPod Nano that cost $150.  For the remaining $70, Quibids will sell you a Nano.  Well, $70 plus tax, fees, and shipping and handling.

With the added “fees,” tax, and S&H, that Nano will cost you more than it would at Apple, and usually much more than it would at a discounted retailer like Amazon.com or Target. In addition, QuiBids is not an approved retailer of Apple – or any major brand name – products.

This means that if you get the item from them, the manufacturer warranty is void – if it breaks within the first 60 days, you will not be able to get it repaired or exchanged. If you have a problem within the first 30 days, QuiBids will refund the final auction price you paid, but not a single dime of the bids it took to win the auction.

It’s much better to stick to legitimate auction sites like eBay, instead of spending lots of frustrating time and effort on penny auction websites like QuiBids.com.

    I have won 300 or so items on Quibids over the years. My total savings is about 8o% including auctions I didn’t win. Yes it is a gamble but you can still save big time with some research, luck, and study. Quibids is very clear on how their auctions work if you read the material provided. When it comes to penny auction sites Quibids is the best and has an excellent Better Business rating !!!

    Qbids is not an auction site. It is a gambling site in which the pay-off is merchandise.
    Arm yourself with knowledge and if you wish to gamble and receive a possible prize, go ahead!

    If you are looking to engage in an auction in which you might make a purchase at a discount… go elsewhere.

    You are Right on target Stanley. It is also a scam in regards to the bidding allowed. Many auctions have bidders who would appear to be “bid builders” I have seen hundreds of auctions going to these high bidders for 3-5 times the value of the auction. You can catch this on the Value Bid auctions in particular. I mean, seriously…how in their right mind would bid 64 bids on a 15 voucher bid auction ? Yes this happens frequently every day on all of the auctions.

    Yes, you can get “lucky” if you happen to slip a bid in at just the right time. Some of the auctions appear to be bait style where a bidder can get the item cheap (especially new members, etc). I noticed this when I first signed up. I was winning a lot of auctions easily and would step up to higher stakes. Eventually it became nearly impossible to win anything. Even the beginner auctions. I notice the same “bid builders” bidding against me and then when I drop out a new bidder would appear and win the auction. I can see this happening rarely, but it is frequently.

    So Beware…

    In my opinion if you consider Q-Bids and similar sites a gambling site rather that an auction site you’ll won’t be terribly disappointed when you realize that you have spent your money and lost it without any return.

    As an auction site, better-off going to a reputable auction site that doesn’t charge you for the privilege of submitting a bid.

    If you chose not to bid on any item, will you lose your $60, anyway? How can they take your money for joining if you do not play their game?
    If you do not play will they refund your credit card, or cancel the expense? Or do they just take your money, regardless of whether you play or not?

    I live in Toronto Ontario and signed up to play Quibids about ten years ago around Black Friday. I was searching the internet and came across it myself. I read everything about it and joined and I think there was a fee to join and if memory serves me correct I think it was $60. I also recall that you could win points to play and I loved that feature of the game.

    I played for seven or eight days straight at random times because it was exciting and I limited myself to how much I spent. In total I spent $120.00 and that included the fee to join.

    Read the rules and re-read them again and understand how to play because it isn’t just a matter of throwing down your bid; I followed the tips. I took notes as well and kept them by the computer so I would know how to bid and this is what paid off. I always noticed too that when the clock was ticking down I automatically assumed that I did not win that round because it appeared someone else got their bid in before I did but that was not always the case.

    I did win and was totally surprised. I recall there was a winners page you could search and that is where I saw my username three times.

    Every item is brand new and this is what I won: Two Nixon Coolpix Cameras, one was purple and the other was silver. One camera cost me $41 and the other was $17. I also won a Hamilton Beach Roaster for 22 cents. I was skeptical about the roaster and wondered if I would ever get it. It came UPS about ten days later and arrived in their branded Hamilton Beach box, and sure enough it was a roaster. I was totally thrilled and used it at Christmas time to cook our turkey. It cooked the turkey in four hours and we put a browning sauce over top to make the skin cook. The turkey was moist and so delicious. Go online and see what this roaster looks like because it is a fairly big appliance. I still have the turkey roaster and continue to use it year after year, plus I have lent it out to my brother and sister. It is still making the rounds and was the best gift of them all because I paid 22 cents and this is the story I share with everyone who asks me where I got it. As for the cameras one of my children got one and I got the other. I used it so much it conked out after seven or eight years and the other won is still in good to use.

    Would I recommend Quibids? Yes I definitely would recommend it because it worked out nicely for me; I was able to use the camera as gifts and saved hundreds of dollars on both these items and the roaster was the best gift of them all.
    PS. I am planning on joining again for Black Friday 2016.

    Yes, I have personally seen people win TV’s, etc (value is posted a retail) for a few dollars. The other thing to keep in mind is they spend several hundred bids to win at $.60/ea. So for a simple example. It too 200 bids (reasonable and many times much higher) to win this $400 retail value TV. So they have invested $120 in bids and $10 to win the auction. So their investment is $130 for the $400 retail value TV (which can be purchased at a discount store for around $250ish in most cases. So for this luck person who did finally win, they appeard to have got a deal. For the all the other bidders, they gut sucked in accordingly. So let’s say I decided to go 100 bids and stop. I now have invested $60 with nothing back in return. In a real auction, you can bid, but only pay if you win. So this is a gambling site with real risks and odds of winning.

    Scam! Scam! Scam! Beware of this site! There is no question or doubt quibids is nothing but scam. Why would they put out brand new hot items for penny bids? E.g. iPad Pro or iPhone 7…. It’s not an exhausted or out of season merchandise, right? The whole idea is to get the consumers sign up and charge them $60 or more for absolutely nothing, no winnings just few stupid clicks on your bid. There will be a bid automatically bid against you on every items doesn’t matter what time of the day or night. Not sure how they get away with this. There should be an government monitoring this type of online site and we all should file a class action against these thieves!

    The sign-up clearly states it is free free free to join and that you will get 3 free bids, and also states that 1 penny bids come in a pack of 100 for $75 CAD. It also states that no purchase needs to be made to sign-up/register.

    Nowhere in the registration process is there an explicit confirmation of purchase of 100 bids.

    Registering requires entering credit card information which then automatically forces the surprise purchase of 100 bids for $75 CAD.

    Beware of the “FREE” sign-up and registration, it is designed to take advantage of unsuspecting nice people. And the purchase of 100 bids is probably in the fine print legalese of the contract.

    Q-bids has a total win/win cash cow operation going for them. Lets step back and look. First you buy bids for 60 cents each. Second every auction you enter has hundreds of items you can bid on based on the dollar value of the main item pictured in that particular auction. Here comes the SCAM “wait for it” While you bid on the item listed in the auction, dozens of others bid on different items in the same price range. While your bidding you will see certain usernames pop up almost every time 24/7. You will also see these same user names in several auctions at the same time using both single bid and bid-o-matic options all day and night. Who do you know that doesn’t sleep and is that talented, who also appears to have unlimited access to real and voucher bids. Example: why would anyone bid on an item for an hour knowingly paying much more then the item is worth over an over again? They are called SHILLS in any auction/gambling type industry. Their one job is to jack up the price. Yes, you will see items that sold for small amounts HOWEVER what you don’t see are the dozens of bidders who have used up all their paid and voucher bids trying to win the auction and had to drop out due to lack of money. Look for yourself, on virtually any auction despite bidding for a long time, sometime hours on an item, somehow in the very last second of the auction another bid pops up out of nowhere and wins for pennies. Do you really believe there is always someone waiting out there who just has to have your particular item at the last second despite other auctions with the same exact item up for sale all day long? Finally, if you do have to file a complaint all the phone numbers they have listed funnel into the same alleged corporate location with only a couple employees answering every time, Really? When you ask for a customer service manager you always get a man named JOSH and he is never in nor does he know how to return calls. Like I said this is a cash cow for q-bids and you have no recourse when you have a complaint other then to kiss your money goodbye. You will probably find a counter response to my review in a very few days listing how its the publics fault for not reading the fine print nor understanding how q-bid works or just a disgruntle buyer. Who do you think these people work for???

    So ive never actually bid on anything, but ive signed up and almost spent the 60 dollars, but myself being a smart person unlike most of you, I read the terms and conditions, and it clearly stated that you need to spend 60 dollars to get 100 bids as a starter pack. like the company needs to make money somehow, did you expect them to sell and IPad for 9 bucks without a way to get money back? Jeez, all you people expect everything to be free in this world. Anyways, I think this is just like a casino, not really a smart thing to do, but if you simply took the time to read, they are not being secretive at all.

    I have no real review just comments. I tried this several years ago, I think just after it debuted. But….. I read the terms and conditions which the majority of you DID NOT. Then you are mad because you lost your money. Shame, shame on you. You are told to read the terms and conditions for a reason! Had you done so, you would have either stopped right then because you didn’t want to pay for your bids up front or you would have done what I did. I treated it like a trip to the casino. I allow myself X amount and when that is done, I stop. If you play slots or whatever, you put your money up front. Then when it is gone, you have to insert more coins.
    In this case, you are putting the money onto your credit card instead of physically having it in your hand. Then they are calling each try a bid. When all your bids are gone, you must pay more money.
    As has been said several times in other reviews, it is very clear that you are paying for bids when you enter your credit card info (if you pay attention and read). So, in conclusion, I am saying THIS IS NO MORE OF A SCAM THAN THE CASINO IS. I don’t hear anyone calling the casino a scam because they know before they go how it works. You just need to understand how it works. So don’t get mad because it is your fault if you lost your money. Chalk it up as a lesson in the school of hard knocks. Then move on. I bet you read the terms and conditions next time!

    First of All, I found QuiBids to be honest and fair in their dealings with me. I was never cheated or mislead. Yes, I have bought bids, used them and lost. No one wins all the time. but the hundreds of auctions I did win, for things like a Dyson Vacumn cleaner for less than 5 dollars, an I pod for less than 4 dollars, an Xbox 36o for less than 10.00, have made life a lot more fun. I have won printers, patio furniture, pots and pans, jewelry, coffee pots, sheets, toys, towels, and a waffle iron, tv mounts, gift cards, and coveralls… actually I won 5 vacumns , not to mention, purses, luggage, phone cases, electric tea kettles and too many more things than I care to type. I never have won a tv, or a computer but I’ve won about everything else. And since the policy of QuiBids is not to charge for shipping, that is free as well. QuiBids is not for everyone, but if you like to have a bit of fun with your spending money, it can give amazing value.


    November 26th, 2016 at 12:04 am

I have learned it has to be a computer or a really stupid player. Either way its just a place that takes your money.

    I’m sorry Linda but I have to agree with Q Winner, I am not even a member yet, but still doing research. I am at the stage of putting my credit card in, and just before completing the sign up I decided to check the reviews. This is AFTER I READ where it very clearly, in big letters, told me I would be buying a bid pack of 100 bids for 75.00 ( I’m in Canada ) and also after reading the terms and conditions.

    Now if you either did not take the time to read or did not understand the information I don’t see how you can blame the company or internet site in this case.

You would have seen that if you would have taken the time to read before jumping in. Also, there is no way that you paid for each bid as you placed it as Q ONLY sells bids in packs!!! NEVER have they sold bids as singles. You paid $60.00 for 100 bids & then you were probably given 5 free bids($3.00) for your sign-up bonus which 65 bids equals $63.00. AND!!! Lying to your credit card company just shows what type of person you are as you DID receive the bids that you purchased!!! What a liar & shame on you!!!

    You have no idea whether the “person” you’re bidding against is an actual person or bot/computer. As the article states, there’s no third party to regulate. And don’t be fooled by “winning” a few small items. It’s like playing at a casino; QuiBids letsyou win small to give you the dopamine release necessary to want to purchase a bid pack. That’s why they force you to bid on a small item before attacking the larger ones: it’s not about “learning” how to bid it’s to get you hooked, just like winning at a slot machine after the first few pulls. Stick to eBay/amazon/craigslist.

    @ Bigger Scam than a Casino

    Ok then…..Taking my time to read these comments was obviously time wasted! you’re all hollering about ” it’s robots betting it’s so not fair”
    But then I’m seeing reviews that are complete lies, like Linda’s above and this one here. I had to comment and then I’ll leave and not waste any more of my time.

    Bigger Scam, just to let you know your remark about the letting you win the small stuff just to get you to buy the bid pack……FYI you have to buy a bid pack before you start. So next time before writing a review you might want to really try the product……just saying.

    Me asking for refund…..
    Angela Hampton, Dec 31, 2:17 PM:
    I feel like this is a misleading scam. When it said please enter credit card number and begin bidding, so I had seen a couple of drones so I started bidding on them and I assumed that whatever amount it ended at meant that if you happened to be the last bidder the amount that won the bid is charged to your credit card (hence entering cc info) I in NO WAY realized that it was charging my credit card $60 and each time I clicked to bid it was taking away from that charged $60!! And with me bidding back and forth on 2 drones it suddenly pops up purchase more bids!? What?? Ok so maybe they start you out with a certain amount of bods and then you run out and have to purchase bids, aha that’s where they get you! Wrong!! You already got me! So since this was extremely misleading I am asking you refund my money to my credit card and cancel my account!

    I too was sucked in and ended up spending $60 on bids. However, I did win 2 small items in the first 3 days with a total value of $40, so $20 lost. But then I was hooked and bought a $27 bid package thinking I could win more. I was VERY wrong, wasted money. Then I started getting the 5 free bids. These go nowhere. If you look at the people you are bidding against they have won items that are costly meaning they have enough money or stockpile of bids, therefore, the poorer person like myself who could really use a deal does not have a chance. It almost seems when you sign up, it is set somehow for you to win the first time and then suck you in to buying more after that.

    I don’t understand why people are saying its a scam. Don’t bid on items you can’t afford buy it at full price! It’s that simple. It gives you a chance to be able to get a discount as if you was going to buy it at the store anyways. And don’t have high expectations thinking you will win a big prize right off the bat. Those attract more bidders and you have to wait for the right time to jump in and start bidding. Do I think there is bots? Probably but like I said, I go in with the intent to buy it at full price anyways so it doesn’t matter to me. I can prove to anybody my list of gifts I have won cheap and what I ended up paying for. Stay away from voucher bids since they have zero value and they don’t go towards cost of item. Next don’t start bidding until there is 4-5 left bidding to help your chance of ending. Anyways it’s not a scam at all because u can buy the item at any time. Good luck! From someone who’s been on site for two years off and on.

    Won IPad, Dre Beats, two go pro cameras ( had to buy one at full price) and a watch.

    tony is right, i am not an employee, and have probably lost a few $$ in the process but if you are on any of these sites, beezid, quibids, deal dash, you must realize going in that the value of bids purchased are good only to the point where they give you a “chance” to win the “right” to purchase items at a greatly discounted price. Winning is fun, but if your money is hard earned then I suggest you go into no auction unless it is something were going to buy anyhow and are willing to pay full price. By the way Quibids at least allows you to place your cursor over top the person bidding on an item and see how long they have been a member. And for god sakes have realistic expectations. $1000 TVs and computers, etc. are going to generate a lot of interest so the “discounted” price will higher and there will be more bidders. These sites are retailers of merchandise who place items for “sale” not knowing what value they will get for it and yes they make money doing it or they wouldn’t be in business very long. I have wasted bids on high end items that I did not get and and have used enough time, patience, and bids to win high end items too, I have also gotten a comforter for 1 bid, total cost to me 61 cents ($60 retail value). basically don’t expect something for little or next to nothing

    I’ve been doing Quibids for 6 months and have kept meticulous records to see if I should continue. I only bid on gift cards since you can’t inflate the MSRP of one.

    I obviously lose more than I win, but the occasional score has given me about a 27% discount over time. Getting $1,000 worth of gift cards for $730 isn’t as impressive as getting a 55″ TV for 3 cents, but it’s a good discount all the same.

    Speaking of the TV’s, where do you people even find the time to bid on them. I can’t count the number ot times that I’ve seen one selling, go to bed, and see it still sellng in the morning…..or see it before I leave for work and then see it still selling when I come home. Am I the only one with a real job here? Where do you people find the time?

    For those of you bitching about getting hit with the $60 fee right away-stop bitching and read the TOS!

    When you go to a casino you know that the odds are against you. Quibids is no different although the odds against you are much higher than any casino game. Someone will get the Megabucks jackpot for a dollar, and someone will get the Ipad for a nickel…just don’t expect it to be you.

    A bit of strategy-don’t buy voucher bids! You’re just buying air and it cuts into your ability to come up even (on gift cards) by using the buy it now feature. It’s no accident that half of the auctions on the front page are for bid packets. It’s just air!

    My 27% discount isn’t as impressive as the advertised 99% ones, but it’s not a bad discount. That should be your attitude.

    Are the bots? I don’t think so.

    Are the bidders who collude-most definitely. I don’t think the company is doing the colluding though. It’s just a group of people working together to win and I’m sure that there are more than a few of them on the site. I wish I had a group but it’s just me.

    If you can’t spare the money than don’t do it.

    If you’re to lazy to read the TOS, then don’t do it.

    If you want to gamble a bit and try for a modest discount over time…do it.

    Just don’t expect any miracles.

    This site is a time commitment but absolutely not a scam. The first, and only time I’ve ever had to use Quibids was when I was on the hunt for an iPad 2, back when that was a thing. Granted, I had to pay $60 for my initial bids, and spend about 7 hours at auction, but at the end of the auction I had won a brand new, factory sealed iPad 2 for $120. In total I paid $180 for it, including the cost of bids, which was substantially less than the $700 the product was going for in stores at the time. So no, the website is not a scam. Obviously the website makes a killing on each product sold, but the winner also gets a ridiculous deal. It’s really a win-win. But if you’re not willing to put in the time and effort, then you won’t win anything.

    And to avoid any kind of ridiculous comments or accusations, I am not an employee of Quibids. I am simply someone who is amused by all the people who are clearly just bitter at the fact that they have failed to win anything.

    The scam is mainly in the language used. They say pennies while they should say tokens wich cost to buy.

    They are not losing anything. When an item sell for 5$ or 500 pennies = 500 tokens that were sold for .60c each, you can do the math. They made 300$.

    So a simple language illusion makes for grabbing anyone thinking it’s a steal.

    I have been with Quibids now for about two years.

    In the beginning I enjoyed it. I never bid on anything I wasn’t willing to buy. If I didn’t win the auction I would use the “Buy Now” and even though the price was more than what I would pay somewhere else, it was worth the challenge of winning and paying less.

    Now on certain items they include the price of 20 or 25 “Voucher Bids” with the price of the item you’re bidding on. Even though you are paying $.60 for these voucher bids they do not count towards the “Buy Now” option.

    To me this is a big rip-off. Right now I have 100 voucher bids that I paid for when bidding on other items. They cost me $60.

    If I use these voucher bids (which like I said, I paid $.60 for)to bid on an item for $75, I can use up the 100 bids and not one cent goes towards the “Buy Now” option.

    I learned early on that it wasn’t to my advantage to bid on voucher bids because in most cases I had to pay full value for them if I didn’t win the auction and they can be used up very quickly without any of the cost going towards the “Buy Now” feature.


    Lucca says:
    November 7th, 2015 at 5:16 pm

    The problem is that as you it more and more it gets harder to find an auction that doesn’t come with voucher bids. This is only true for gift cards. Most of the tangible non gift card items still sell alone.

    I am trying to figure out whether I want to pay to play–which, in the end, is what you do. Bidding can be fun and though I have not tried the bidding part in person, I know that I have done the research on the company. I give them a fair rating because of two things. They are very upfront about the $60.00 entry fee. They are also very explicit when describing what you get for the money. Some of the “math” calculations I have read are just plain wrong because the math problem is not set up correctly and end numbers are ridiculously high (I was a math teacher.) It is amusing that anyone who has a positive statement is supposedly a company mole.

    It seems to me that many are panning the company because they lost or they had to pay the 60 cents a bid–which is clearly stated multiple times on the website. If you don’t want to gamble this money, stay out, but I can’t see blaming the company–in Texas where I grew up that was called “sore loser;” now it is more like not reading the fine print. If I decide to throw my 60 bucks in, I know that I may never win anything–because that is what gambling means. You play for the excitement of the possibility.

    I won’t stop going to ebay, but I may give this one a shot as well. Ahhh the excitement of winning an ipad for $1.34–who can resist?

    It is NOT a scam per say but obviously QuiBids is out to make a profit. They have a ‘B’ grade with the BBB, who also had this to say:

    BB rating is based on 13 factors. Get the details about the factors considered.

    Factors that lowered QuiBids’ rating include:

    615 complaints filed against business
    Factors that raised QuiBids’ rating include:

    Length of time business has been operating.
    Response to 615 complaint(s) filed against business.
    Resolution of complaint(s) filed against business.
    QuiBids is an online auction site through which consumers compete for the opportunity to purchase goods. Consumers are advised to read and understand all of the information provided on the company website prior to becoming involved with the process. The rules for purchasing goods through QuiBids’ auctions are different from other auction sites, in which potential bidders create an online identity, shop the auctions, and place bids on items of interest. At the end of the auction period, the bidder who has committed to the highest price for the item wins it and then purchases it from the seller. QuiBids is part of a next generation of auction sites in which participants purchase bids, then pay those bids toward the item of their choice. Whoever has invested the most bids in the item at the end of the auction reserves the right to purchase it; those who have paid bids into the pot in the hopes of winning the item lose that item and the bids paid toward winning it. However, if the bidder wishes to purchase the lost item, the bidder is able to purchase it using a Buy It Now feature. “Buy It Now” allows bidders to purchase the item at retail value, minus the cost of bids used in the auction. Some restrictions may apply. Additionally, QuiBids’ policy is to add time to the auction period each time a user places a bid; each bid adds time to the auction. The last participant when the timer runs out wins the product. Another practice for consideration by potential bidders is a concept that, unlike other auction sites, QuiBids’ auctions are not open to any interested seller. Products are sold new from the original manufacturer; should a buyer encounter problems with a product, policies are in place to address these issues. Consult the site and its policies for details.

    In August 2011, the BBB became aware that QuiBids.com completed an internal controls audit conducted by Grant Thornton, a well-respected accounting and professional services firm. Grant Thornton states that it performed extensive testing in order to determine that QuiBids maintains effective controls providing reasonable assurance that bids are place by bona fide users and does not manipulate the bidding process to inflate the bid price or affect who wins the auction (no use of bots, shill bidding or bidding by employees), and in addition, QuiBids maintains effective controls to provide reasonable assurance that winning auctions and ‘Buy Now’ orders are fulfilled (i.e. shipped).

    Of the complaints processed by the BBB since opening its file on QuiBids, nearly all of the disputes result from misunderstandings concerning the site’s “bid to buy” policies that could have been avoided if the bidders had read and understood the auction site’s design and policies. The BBB urges consumers to read and understand all of the site’s policies before becoming involved with an auction or purchasing bids. Consumers should also understand that the times reported by the site during the auction and real time may not match, especially at the close of an auction; this is not a deceptive action on the part of the site, but rather a function of computer software that may create apparent delays in processing information across the internet. Such delays may be caused by anything from the company’s servers to the consumer’s own online connection and computer’s abilities and do not necessarily mean that the company is cheating the public.

    Better Business Bureau has processed a large volume of complaints from consumers questioning a $60.00 debit charged to their accounts after signing up for the company’s services. On the same web page in which users enter credit or debit card data, the sign-up form shows three times that the initial starter package includes $60 of bids. By completing the sign-up form, the user is purchasing those bids and whatever card is listed is authorized to be debited that amount. It should be noted that, also displayed on the same page is a “100% guarantee” promising satisfaction with the website and its services. Prospective users are encouraged to read and understand any company’s policies and guarantees prior to signing up for services or surrendering personal banking information.

It would have been nice if they had shared that before they took my $60. I did bid on a couple of things which of course I did not win which means I got absolutely nothing for my $60.

    1,030 wins? With that kind of money, why not just go buy it at a store?
    The “fine print” is there to confuse you. Quibids will beat you. They are in the business of tricking people out of their money. The one star reviews make that pretty damn obvious. Otherwise there would be so many many more happy happy people like Mr. Quibidder. I agree that he/she is just one of the many moles planted to convince the nest curious person that this is not a scam. It’s a scam. Plain, but not simple.

    I went the the Quibid site to see what it was all about. As with many sites they requested information, which I provided. After watching the bidding for a few minutes I saw it was not for me so I left the site. On checking my bank account, they had billed me for Sixty ($60) Dollars. I bid on nothing, I purchased nothing, I did not authorized the taking of my money for nothing. That is theft, pure and simple. It should be a felony crime and someone at the company should be fired for coming up with the system, then tried and sent to federal prison for theft.

    They are a scam and thats hiw they pay for those big prizes…that ppl

    DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM. You will be bidding against employees of Qui Bids, who will continue to bid the price up until THEY win the bid. The items are Dollar Store items that can be purchased for less than $5.00 yet listed four times what it is worth. You will not win.

    Amazon $545 free shipping
    From what I see most of the things are going for triple retail.
    It is like the story:
    Old guy buys a mule for $20 when he came to get it is dead. Tells the farmer don’t worry.
    Raffles 200 $1 tickets for the mule.
    Winner come to get mule says,”Hey, the mule is dead!”

    1. a waste of time, and feeds on peoples greed or the desire to save.
    2. a rip off, because they get your money up front. (always a bad sign.) Then you are stuck trying to get some item, while bidding pennies.
    3. they promise the world and deliver nothing.
    4. they compare themselves to ebay. That is like comparing a thief to walmart.
    Ebay has strict codes of conduct for sellers, and they protect their buyers.
    5. this is “bait and switch” with a very evil twist.
    6. most people will bid on items they think they want. Have they done the research on the product? Maybe some deals happen. ALL I EVER DID WAS BURN UP MONEY BIDDING, AND NOT WINNING, AND WASTING TIME. If I go to Amazon or Ebay I can bid what I am willing to pay or do a buy it now.

    You can pick the items you want to bid on. Just at the beginning of your journey they start you off easy, where you can learn to bid, and bid wisely. They also offer Quibids 101 and lots of reading material for you to succeed in bidding.
    I have been with them over a year and just love them. When I had any problems with items I won or purchased, they quickly sent me another one. I plan to stay with them for years.
    IF you are new to it, read all they offer and view their facebook page it teaches alot, from other bidders who have learned to successfully won great items!

    Hi. I’ve been on quibids for awhile and here’s what I gathered:

    I never lose, per se, because if I come up empty I use the buy it now feature and get it for the listed price. It tends to be an inflated price so I stick to lower value items.

    I actuall win, and pick up a great deal, maybe 15-20% of the time but I have a different view of it. Everyone here thinks a good deal is 90%+ off. I’ll settle for 20-30% off. It’s a nice sale price.

    Colluders and or bots? I have my suspicions about both but can’t prove it.

    There are a few strategies that I won’t share but they aren’t foolproof. Like I said I only win 10-15% of the time.

    In the end, do what you want.

  • Mystery lady says:

  • Debbie says:

    April 26th, 2015 at 6:48 pm

    I had the same experience as Debbie. I won a gift card for a penny in a beginer auction. Then I used up all 99 bids in 2 losing efforts on other gift cards and paid cash to get the cards to avoid a loss. I came out $19 ahead. I’ll take the win because a buck is a buck. Although I doubt that this rate of return could be sustained in the long run, I’ll quit while I’m ahead and go out a winner-but like Debbie said it’s not enough to retire on.

    One thing I did notice for all of you people who want to win the Ipad…there are hardly any up for auction. There were all sort of Ipad accessories, like protective covers, but hardly any actual Ipads.

    And, given the final closing prices on the Ipads and TV’s…who has that kind of time on their hands? Not me..I have a real job.

    Best of luck to those who go in for the long term.

    I read the TOS before I started (because I always do) and won a gift card for one cent in an easy beginner auction. Thrm I usd up a lot of my bids and won a 2nd card-but at an unimpressive 8% discount. The last of my bids were used up on card #3, which I paid extra real $$ on so as to not waste anything.

    Bottom line: I made $27 in profit. I’ll take it but it’s not enough to retire on or tempt me back.

    What I don’t get is how the Ipad winner finds the time to watch an auction like that. I guess that you guys have way to much time on your hands.

    Although I have not fallen prey to this obvious scam, the 1st thing that came to mind was: Who is dumb enough to believe that every bid placed is placed by an actual person? If the bidding stops too early on any given item that’s when the computer that controls their entire auction site steps in and places it’s own bogus bid to ensure the bidding will continue to a point that the item has made a clear profit and will then stop bidding and allow the real bidders (actual people who have no common sense) to continue the auctions. Thus making sure the profit is made and the bidders will actually win the item but not until the auction site has made their profit margin. I doubt you’ll ever see any auction end at a point that would be less than the wholesale price of each item. After the real bids are tallied up and the fake ones are dismissed, then and only then will that item reach a point that there could be a long enough time without bids for a win to occur.

    As for the penny auction sites obvious shill educatedbidder who would only be spending every second of their time going between penny auction bashing sites and reviews sites continuously defending them with posts spanning over years, Every single time anything is said in a bad way or if they find any small support for the penny sites guess who is there to comment?!

    Now the rest of us that are not dumb enough to bother using those sites are the ones who also cannot believe that others are so dumb they can’t seem to figure out what the hell you’re doing here! There’s no way anyone would invest this much time and effort defending anything if they had no vested interest in it. Period.
    Also talks as though they represent the sites directly and even forming sentences that suggest they are speaking for the sites in some collective way.

    I too have visited the sites and watched how they worked and I was in disbelief that this kind of site was legal, there’s no way to know if you’re being lead on by a computer program or if the bids were real. I think they need to be investigated and each bid needs to be traced to an actual live persons credit account with a real mailing address attached to it. I’m sure there would be no problem to allow this type of investigation since they have nothing to lie about and are on the up and up? Right educatedbuyer? I wonder if you could show some proof of this, maybe a BBB investigation into the generation of the bids? Or any eCommerce stamp of approval? Since there is no need to prove they are legit they will continue to shill and lie and take idiots money, this is how the internet works people! The morons who spend their money on these sites perpetuate the problem, if they had any sense they wouldn’t ever have bid and those sites would go away.
    The strangest thing is why the bidders haven’t figured out that all they need to do is start a web page for bidders and choose a winners order, where certain higher valued items would not be bid on by anyone but 1 bidder. If enough bidders join the site and get in sync they could catch them cheating very easily, also ensuring there would be a winner on that item for minimal $ each person takes there turn to win and the items could be collectively sold on real auction sites and the money could be dispersed back to the buyers. This would provide the bidders with the money to bid with and pay them back on the bids that were placed previously to get the ball rolling.

    It would take some time and some trust to keep the bids on each item under control and of course there will be some new bidders who will; be bidding against the collective group but will fail to keep the bidding going after a while and the group will always win no matter what the cost is since the will be reimbursed from the sale of items.

    This will break the sites eventually causing them to expose their bots and making sure that they stop bidding on items once they have identified the bids made by bots. then listing those names of the fake accounts on their site. Posting this will force them to constantly create new accounts and they will just be exposed right away.

    A few thousand people could get together and win everything that has value expose the bots and crush the sites. It only would take some restraint from bidders to do this. Waiting your turn to bid and sticking to the plan, recording other bidders and comparing notes from each sale on their group site.

    Sorry if I hurt anyone’s feelings and educated buyer can just stop with their BS and get a life, oh and you can pick up your check from the penny auction sites for your work you’ve been doing for them on these sites. You must be the only one they could find to do this or you’re just an A$$HOLE who likes to fu<k with people on line which is so sad when you consider the amount of time you invest in it.

    Who cares? If someone makes money advertising or defending this site…WHO CARES? It’s the way of the world.
    Also, do you realize how completely stupid your ideas are? Do you have any idea how much work goes into building a site like that? Or how much money? It’s not cheap. It’s not easy. It takes work beyond what a group of people who just want to buy an item or items is either willing to do, or is capable of doing.
    How exactly is it stupid? If I by a $100 TV for $14.97 with 10 bids, I’ve spent $20.97 (+S&H). That’s almost $80 saved. Yes, it took 1497 bids for the auction to end. Yes, that totals $898.20 in bids. But please tell me where any store in this country sells a product at a loss for themselves? They buy it for a factory price and then sell it at a certain profit percentage. It’s how business works. And every person on this site agreed to pay 60 cent per bid, even if they didn’t win. So, if don’t be an idiot and spend more in bids than what the product is worth to begin with. That is BASIC common sense. Geez. It’s not the website’s fault if people are idiots without COMMON SENSE.

    Terrible! It cost me $60 to try this free website. The minute you enter your information, which appears to be for the items you win, they charge your account $60.00. They will refund them if you do not use them but since they show in the bids you can use it isn’t until later you realize that they were charged to your account. Of course, by then you have tried out the site and the bids are gone. What a scam…..$60 every time someone tries this site.

    When I registered I didn’t realize $60 were deducted from my account immediately. This was not made clear at all when signing up. Then I also realized the chances of winning anything are remote. Basically a beginner will end up losing the whole 60 bucks because there are so many bidders out there and they keep adding 10 seconds after every bid to keep it going and jack up the price so you never know when it will end. Worst of all you will have to keep track of the bidding for hours for a slight chance of winning.

    i was on quibids a couple years ago it seems. Didn’t do bad. get on during the slow times, get some items for 1 penny or I’d do 2 bids max. I certainly got my monies worth. After I spent my actual money bids, I left quibids for a while. Later I received an email saying my voucher bids would expire so I got on to use them up. Using the same strategy as before, I had no luck the 2nd go around. I didn’t stick around long enough to figure out what was different. I guess I threw this comment up because I wouldn’t call quibids a scam, it clearly explained how the “game” is played. Just that winning isn’t likely. And if you look at it from an entertainment perspective, it is kinda cheap fun.

    I care, yes I care that they are making excessive profit by scamming trusting people out of their money and putting it into their pockets while laughing all the way to the bank. I guess you can’t see that this kind of “business” is what is wrong with our country. When profit is hailed above the good of the public, it should be illegal. When you purposely scam people, stealing money from those who should be, and could be loyal customers, you should be held responsible. You may blame this on uneducated buyers, and even pass it off as a “game”, but it is people like you that make me want to send you to the front lines in Afghanistan without a viable weapon other than your bloated ego. Your comment is pure BS, and I would not be surprised to find that you work for this horrid company. Your ethics must be pretty low to condone this behaviour. What a schmuck!

    Who cares how much they make? I’ve bought plenty of items from them at quite the bargain. You just have to know what you’re bidding on and be prepared to pay full price if you don’t “win.” I have yet to pay full price for anything.

    They “enhanced” the bidding so your basically bidding for one item out of a pool of items that everyone else is bidding on.
    The pool of items is in a similar price point.
    So someone bidding on a $800 crossbow is also bidding against someone bidding on a $800 lady’s watch.
    What a pile.

    It says registration is free but ask for your credit card detail during the process, not showing clearly the amount of charge they are going to take from your credit card, and they charge 0.60 cent per bid. An iPhone may sell for $50 dollars, but its starting price is at 0.01. It means by the time the iPhone is sold at $50, there would be 50 * 100 = 5000 bids * 0.60 cent per bid = $3000. Basically the website makes $3000 on an iPhone sold for $50. It is a con. There can only be one winner for the iPhone, the rest of the bidders would have lost near $3000 collectively. That’s why I say the website is a con.

    I had a similar experience, I was inquiring about a phone on Craigslist and the seller contacted me and said she sold the phone but how she bought the item on Quidbids and she does it all the time. And how she waits till the bidding slows down she usually wins. This is how she makes extra money and how I can do the same thing if I go to this website (quidbids site) and just sign up. What a scam!!!!

    I signed up with QuiBids in 2011 and purchased $60 in bids and never used them. I attempted to get a refund this year (2015) and was told my bids were converted to a voucher in 2014, but the bids had expired.

    So, I requested my $60 back. The representative told me I couldn’t get a refund. I requested to speak to a manager and was given a number. I have called several times and gotten the following feedback:

    1. Another representative responded with the same comment about not being able to provide a refund and that the manager was out of the office.

    2. A recorded message at the “manager’s” number stating that no one was available to take your call and to call back (really, in the middle of the day 12 EST and 11 CST).

    I don’t think I will ever get my refund of $60. I’m just thankful that it wasn’t more than that amount. Beware of QuiBids.

    I played at Quibids in the beginning. Did fine but quit because of collusion. Report them and nothing is done. They use to put everyone’s home town in auction and you could compare auctions and keep track but they quit that. Still lots of collusion. Go listen to the facebook page. They call themselves the community. They know each others names, address, and even birthdays. They mail each other gifts and they don’t bid against each other. They talk in private all the time, you can tell by the conversations. Put up with them and the ones in Quibids who don’t even go to the facebook page and you might as well send them your money for nothing. And a great item might be free bids or a spatula. Sounds crazy to me.
    And drawings depend on the person running the facebook page. They also do not follow their own rules, they break them. Especially if a contest say’s you can only win once. Not true. You can win all the time. It is legit for prizes and winning bids. Take a look and bids are just as popular than items which is pure profit. You have to pay the 120 employees or more that they have somehow. It’s entertainment, all up to how you want to waste your money. Very few things they sell that I need.

    I didn’t need to donate $60 to find out if quibids.com or quickabids.com is a rip off.

    All i had to do was search for reviews and read them on this site. and it is obvious who felt they got ripped off and who works for the company.

    I know now from this site: that they have a $60 up front cc charge,
    that it will cost me .60 per bid,
    and since it can only go up a penny per bid,
    there will be 2000 bids for an item to get to $20.00.
    2000 bids x .60/bid = $1200 quibids gross income from bids.
    How do I know if the other bidder(s) are actually real buyers like me, or the company ratcheting up the bid? I don’t know.

    If I feel lucky enough to wait to be the last bid, I’d better leave my computer and go get a lottery ticket. Larger prize and i know up front my total cost.
    The lottery is a good business model that makes 90% of its’ money off of the poor. relying on greed to fuel it.

    Greed wrecks families and real peoples’ lives.
    Nothing is free, somebody pays somewhere.
    Money is not the root of evil, ‘the love of money’ is, aka Greed.

    I can afford to lose $60, I just choose not to right now, thanks to the contributors to this review site.
    Good Luck! (it’s a dogeatdog world out there!

    ps: Would “Lisa N. Ryan or lisa.ryan@meetfrom-cl.com ” please leave Craigslist alone, i like Craigslist and you are wrecking it. He/She will post adds with cheaper prices to sell products that are on the quibids.com site, when I inquired to buy the phone, he/she said they just sold it but i can go buy it on quickabid.com site,/ which automatically sends me to quibid.com. An obvious bait and switch, which is a misdemeanor in our state, and a felony if the $ amount is larger.

    I do laugh at some people who have jumped in without research. As a college kid i studied for about three months the ongoings at quibids and decided i would give it a try. Figured out that the wee morning hours was a slow time. Within a month i had turned my sixty dollars into 6 15 dollar gift cards and never bid more than five times. After making my money back i got bored with it. I had about 70 bids left and have just recently gotten back on and noticed the amount of auctions going on at a time has decreased significantly concentrating the bidders on one or two auctions. This being the case now i wouldnt recommend this site because it takes a lot of money and luck to win where it used to be more strategy. I just want to say though that quibids is not a scam. Research before you put your credit card info out there

    Have the same problem as everyone else with the $60 unauthorized charge. Send an email to support@quibids.com stating you were not aware of the charge when you submitted your cc number. I sent my email on 2/7/15 and received two emails stating I will receive a $60 refund and that my account is disabled to prevent future transactions. If you have used any of your bids, the amount(s) will be deducted from your refund. I had not used any bids. I am confused why there are complaints from no response from Quibids. I received a response within one day and the rep in the mail was very cordial. Hope you have the same response.

    I’ve made it my mission to tell others how awful Quibids is. I’m out about $100 and got NOTHING. I didn’t agree knowingly to the first $60 pack, I never saw the fine print saying they were charging my card. So there I was bidding with my “free” bids, what I thought were free anyway. If it was so obvious that they charge your bankcard, why is it that many other people are complaining about this issue as well? I contacted customer service and ended up getting a dismissive and rude person. I got so mad I told them to FO. I never lose my composure like that, not very often, but this just angered me. I felt so scammed and ripped off by this company. I did end up winning a cheap tube of Mariah Carey lotion. They said it was sent, NEVER received it! When talking to customer service they put a link to BBB service so I could complain, that’s when I told them to FO. I couldn’t believe they would just dismiss me like that. I did file 2 BBB complaints with no resolution from them, no nothing. Just basically felt screwed and angry. They just don’t give a crap about their customer. They have absolutely no integrity.

Just how fast do you think the postal service is??? Even if it was shipped out Monday night the postal service wouldn’t have picked it up until the next day which was Tues. AND you could only have filed with the BBB yesterday (Tues.) & you say that you filed 2 complaints & never heard back from them??? Sounds like you expect the whole world to stop just for you. How about you write again & let us know that you did receive your item & in a timely manner, and do please let us know when you hear back from the BBB & what they had to say. Did you really file or are you just shooting your mouth off because you lost $100 and didn’t read the 101 help section to learn how to play on the site before you jumped in? After you lost the first $60 why would you spend more money not knowing how to play the game!!! Just can’t feel sorry for people like you that won’t take responsibility for your actions.

This site is an Item gambeling site & THEY ARE UPFRONT ABOUT THAT FACT!! your playing in a lottory of sorts, rather than gamble for cash you gamble for items, the bids you make are not recoverable, that money go’s to house to cover the cost of the item & overhead cost & of corse A sizable hosting $$ FEE $$ it go’s to the house!! YOU DO NOT GET YOUR BID MONEY BACK! WHEN SOMEONE ELSE WINS THE ITEM IT IS A “GAMBLE” THEREFOR “YOU ARE GAMBLING FOR THE ITEM” & NOT TRYING TO OUT BID SOMEONE BY OFFERING THE SELLER MORE MONEY FOR THE ITEM THAN ANOTHER BUYER! IT IS BASED ON ODDS & THE ODDS ARE ALWAYS STACKED AGINST THE PLAYER, & carfuly crafted & drafted in legal latin that says “THE HOUSE WINS THE LIONS SHARE OF THE TAKE!!” I would bet they make 20 to 100 times the retail value that the item is worth!

Good luck to the suckers who fall for it. Hopefully, state AGs, as well as more enlightened consumers, will get it shut down soon.

    OTOH, consider all the spam emails and phone calls out there and the fact that no one would send them out if not for the fact that a small percentage of fools actually send these slimy crooks money for whatever product or service is being peddled. Quibids is no different from a Nigerian money order scam.

Which leads me to think he bought 2,000+ bids, just so happened to have saved all of his free bids for about 5 years, or it was a fake account with unlimited bids, set to push actual users into bidding more.

No way would i sign up or especially give these scam operators a credit card number. I then googled quibids reviews and came across LOTS of complaints sites, including this one. I really have to doubt the sincerity/agenda of those defending it. Think about it – if it was for real, why would they be defending it when if it is as great as they say, then the fewer competitors, the better.

    I decided to register to find out. My first mistake. So many other sites like eBay I thought to get the info I wanted all I had to do was sign up.

    The very first information they want is your credit card number. At this point I should have stopped all the alarm bells were going off, but I ignored them. I mean if they are crooks surely Paypal. Visa. Mastercard would have nothing to do with them. Wrong again.

    As I went through the registration process, Quibids started to reveal how they work. When I came across them warning new people will lose their money until they catch on how everything works and to start small.

    When I found out I would have to pay for the item even though I didn’t win, I left the QUIBIDS.COM site thinking these guys are crooks. The next day I found out they charged my Paypal account 60.00 for just registering with them. I was livid. AVOID THESE CROOKS LIKE THE PLAGUE!!

    Exactly what happened with me. I got into with their customer service. They gave me a link to BBB so I filed 2 complaints on them. they never responded to 1 of them and the other they just said I should have read the fine print. Ok, so I’m not going to say I’m gullible, cause I’m not, but they got me hook, line and sinker, and what really sold them was their BBB accreditation. A company who has the backing of BBB surely wouldn’t scam people, right? If you look on BBB they have so many complaints, all the same $60 charge complaint.

    Hi. Don’t take this the wrong way but I can’t help but laugh at some of the complaints up here. For example:

    “They charged my card right away!” Sheesh people…read the terms of service agreement ha ha.

    “I spent 5 bids and didn’t win the IPAD!”. Kind of a longshot, don’t you think? If you put a quarter into a slot machine with a million dollar jackpot and didn’t win, would you be bitching?

    “I don’t have that much money and wanted to get it at a discount.” Laughable as well. If you don’t have that much money then why are you here in the first place or contemplating buying things you really don’t need and can’t afford?

    ” I tried to use the Buy It Now feature but their price was higher than the MSRP at Best Buy (or wherever). Very true my foolish friends, but why didn’t you check that at other websites before you even began?

    -PS, out of curiosity, who buys some of these things? I understand wanting a TV, gift card, etc…but they also auction (and sell) things like lobster tails. What kind of dummy buys seafood over the internet from a penny auction? When you recover from your food poisoning post your answer.

    “The only people who win are the ones with a ton of voucher bids”. Is this true? I know because I did the math behind it but will let you figure it out for yourself. Maybe it’s the way to go….but maybe not.

    I could go on and on, laughing at you people who lose hundreds of dollars that you can’t afford to lose, but in the final analysis:

    Despite the easy to understand (for those of us with a 3rd grade education) underlying mathematics of their business model, they don’t make a penny from it.

    They make every cent based on simple pricing models and their research and understanding of human psychology, most notably:

    Compulsive behavior

    and last of all sheer ignorance (for those of you who don’t even bother to read the TOS or the rules.)

    It’s not a scam…just a very clever business model.

    Yeah, yeah…you think I work for them because I don’t want to go to Oklahoma and set the building on fire, but I know I’m right.

    Do I belong to Quibids…I’ll keep it a mystery but:

    If I’m a member, or a shill, I’d be defending the company because I’m saying that there is no scam but….

    If I was a member would I be trashing you and scaring off future potential customers?

    It could be both, you decide, but what I know for sure is that I’m laughing at all of you.

I am not or never will be a victim of their process. However, I am lucky that I am very auction savvy and saw through their claims right from the start.

You didn’t learn after the first $100.00? You deserved to lose!!! Yes, stay away as we don’t need people like you running up the prices to ridiculous amounts of money.

    Hello. I wrote a lenghty review a few comments back and decied to join. Here’s what has happened thus far:

    A) I’m ahead of the game but not by enought to retire on.

    B) The delivery of the goods has been very good.

    c) I’m still not sure about the bot issue. I’ll look at the past auctions and the current winner tends not to do as well as the ones listed in the past. In fact, I;\’ve watched some auctions where 2 or 3 people wind up in a real pissing contest so that the winner gets his discount, but not a great one.

    D) I think that there is en element of money management involved.

    Just my two cents anyway.

    STAY AWAY FROM QuiBids!!

    I won Oxford Hotel New York Embossed – Leaf Microfiber Sheet Sets – Queen – Chocolate
    for $.01 and they debited my account for $60.00!

    No one to call to iron out this. No phone number.

    Stay away!!!!!

    Jim, the $60.00 was for the bids that you bought and yes you did buy them or you wouldn’t have been able to bid on the sheets. The sheets were actually free since you won them for under 50 cents. If you would have READ Quibids 101 you would know this. Also, there IS a phone# a chat line plus an e-mail address. If you want a refund for the 59 bids that you have left just contact them. Next time I suggest that you check things out before you jump in and start shooting off your mouth when it is obvious that you don’t know what you are talking about!!!!!!

    October 30th, 2014 at 1:21 pm


    I must admit that this has been some interesting reading. I read 7 pages of reviews untill everything said was repitious. I think that I can offer an objective opinion on Quibids but first a little about me.

    -I work a normal job like any normal person. I just have the time to watch the auctions becauser I hurt my back but will be back to work in several days,

    -I have never lost and auction on Quibids, nor have I ever won one or spent a single cent. I”ve just been an observer with no vested interest in who wins and/or loses.

    -Last of all, please read what I have to say without jumping on any spelling mistakes that I might make. Sue me.

    That being said:

    A) First of all, the people who are complaing about getting hit right away for the $60 charge have no right to complian. Its clearly stated in the wevsites Terms of Service page(s).

    B) The business model, and the underlying mathematics that make it profitable, should be easy to figure out so nobody has the right to complain either.

    C) After watching for some time (no stake in anything, remember), I think it, like any penny auction, is some sort of hybrid between Ebay and casino gambling. Somebody, in theory, can and has at one point probably gotten a high value electronic item for less than $1. I’ve never seen it but I’m sure it has happened. Along that same line of thought I know that there are some people that have won multimillion dollar progressive slot machine jackpots for the investment of a few quarters. Were you the lucky one? Probably not but it can happen.

    D) I should state that, because it has a gambling element to it, those amongst you who are predisposed to gambling issues should avoid this site-period.

    E) If you check what they call the “retail price”, of their items you’ll find that it doesn’t stack up to the price that you’d see in Best Buy or wherever. If you want, or need, the item then just go to the store and buy it rather than take a chance. Even with the “buy now” feature, you’re still dealling with a price that doesn’t match reatail.

    F) You should only bid on tangible items and not these bid packets. You’re only trying to buy air although they are fairly valued at 60 cents each. If you plan to stay awhile then go for it but only if you were goinng to buy more bids anyway.

    G) I saw a few complaints about people getting charged extra money against their bank accounts, or credit cards, without their consent. I can give you a way around this proplem. Use one of those prepaid debit cards that you can buy at most retailers. You’ll have to pay a few dollars for an activation fee but it’s money well spent if it give you peace of mind. Just a thought on my part.

    H) Are there shills or bots working the site? I don’t know and never went in so I can’t give an opinion on that.

    I) You ned to be prepared to spend a lot of time in front of the computer if you want to win. Think about it: If an item costs $500 that means that there could be up to 50,000 bids (although it probably go that high) with a maximum resest of 10 seconds a bid. That’s 500,000 seconds! Even if the auction only takes 25% of this time it still represents an investment a non stop day of sitting in front of the computer. Where you find the time for that is beyond me.

    J) One thing that makes Qubids better than it’s competitors such as Beezid is the buy it now feature. At least you can recoup your costs and get the item, albeit at a price that might be inflated, but it’s better than walking away empty handed.

    K) In closing, is it a scam? I say no…just a crafty business that preys upon the human emotions of greed, desperations, and poor money management. But it’s not a scam and you might be able to be a long term winner, but who knows.

    On last thing….please don’t accuse me of being a shill for the company because I didn’t slam it with all capital letters. I read the Terms of Service and simply watched without winning or losing a cent or an item.

    Give it a try if you want, but do so within your means and don’t get compulsive about it.

It is your fault if you lose your money and don’t win anything because you didn’t take the time to read simple instructions.

    What a scam. $60 for 100 bids. In the end if you win it the costs of bids spent (exp: 30Bids – $18) plus the auction price. If its a $10 pair of earbuds you one for 0.90 it now cost you $18.90. Now you would have to be a complete idiot to think this is a deal. Trust in EBay my friends and stay as far away from qbids and dealdash as you can.

So then i begin to read reviews then I realized that you have to be seriously optimistic to actually go through with this. I for one have bills and a child and I would like to save money and this sounds like more of a waste then an actual deal.

I figured it was a scam anyway after seeing all the commercials, I mean come on who can really buy a new iPad for $10? Anyway, but I’m like you with PayPal, I am so done with them too. I had a problem with eBay, it was a dispute between me and eBay and supposedly eBay thought that I owed them money when in reality they owed me money. Well, Since eBay and PayPal are connected buddies, eBay when I head and just took the money out of PayPal’s account which was connected to my bank account which they just took the money out of my bank account. PayPal and eBay is starting to suck too. I don’t know where to find any good auction sites. Does anyone have any ideals?

    Although I suppose a few people come out ahead at least for a while the real winner are the scammers at Qbids. At 60 cents per bid they are making a fortune on everything and of course there is no way to know if these bids are legit. My advice is stay away especially if you have a gambling problem because you will have the urge to win your losses back.
    It is also very irresponsible for the legitimate news organizations to promote this scam on network TV. Nobody has ever won a TV for $1.97 — they spent a lot more on the bids.
    And they do scam you right up front making it look like the credit card is just in case you want to purchase some bids. Before you know it you have been charged $60 bucks. Then you think “well it will be a big hassle trying to undo this so I may as well give it a try.” Big mistake just don’t give them a credit card number in the first place. If you want that TV look for a sale and buy it. No sense letting Qbids make thousands of dollars selling you a TV. Even if the “winner” gets the $600 TV for $50 that means Qbids sold 5000 “bids” at 60 cents each and took in $3000. That is a profit of $2600 on a TV.
    Another example is a $10 gift card that sells for $3 those 300 bids generated $180 in profit. Great deal for Qbids — bad deal for everyone else.

    It ‘s funny how people have such different experiences doing the same thing. I have been playing Quibibs since May 2010. I make a considerable amount of money from this site. First, you must learn how to play and that takes time and money as in everything where there is competition. Once you learn enough to start winning, that is still the beginning. The more you play, the more you learn resulting in you getting better and better and winning even more. I have even thought of teaching groups of people how to play this auction and charge them $5,000 for a 2-day seminar. It would take me two full days to teach you a lot of what I know and you would even then not be as good as I am. Not that you might not be smarter then me, just that I have 4-years of experience over you. That would be like a white belt karate kid trying to beat a black belt after 1-week of training. Not very realistic if you see what I mean. I’m a chemical engineer who charts and records everything. First you need to set yourself up a free storer front on Amazon so you have a good place to sell all the things you when from Quibids. Second, be patient with your learning slope. I win around $30,000 per year and my ROI (return on investment is 119%. That means for every dollar I spend, I make an extra $1.19 profit. That is why people would pay me $5,000 just to learn what I have learned by playing this site. About 1-year ago, new owners took over Quibids. It is harder now then it was before. If these new owners had not bought Quibids and put in place a few new rules, I really thought I was going to be able to retire and become a millionaire off this site. Not anymore. Glad I kept my day job. Ha!

    To the people out there screaming about losing $50 they should never try to play a game like this. This is a gambling site with certain bets that are hedged against a bad loss. The worst I can lose is paying a slightly elevated retail price for the item and potentially have to sell it for 20% less then what I paid for it. But that is my worse case senecio. Also, never buy or bid for those voucher bids. That is crazy. You are simply converting real money for fake (Monopoly Money). If you do that then your worse case changes from a maximum lose of 20% to a maximum loss of 100%.

    You must have money to make money. Never enter an auction that you do not have enough cash and gonads to go all the way and buyt it even if you lose. That is one of the most important rules.

    Second, bid for items that cost between $500 and $1,000. $800 is my sweet spot. This is because everyone has $50 to spend on a $50 item but not very many people have $1,000 to spend on one single auction. You eliminate 98% of your competition by doing it that way.

    NEVER bid on voucher bids. Play with real money, not fake money.

    Have yourself an Amazon store set up to move your merchandise back to cash. That is a 60-day cycle. Like I said, it takes money to make money.

    Third, stay away from IPads and Apple Laptops. Too many people want them and are willing to pay full retail to get them. I like going after Cameras and less attractive items that still have high retail. Before I bid on anything, I first look that item up on Amazon and see what I would have to sell it for so I know it’s true value.

    Understand that it takes a considerable time commitment to win an $800 auction item. Yes, it is possible you can get lucky and win it in 15-minutes. But you must be prepared to stay for the entire bid…….and NEVER EVER QUIT an auction you start. You must decide before you begin that you are prepared to spend $800 on that auction and have that much in bids already deposited into your account at Quibids. Don’t worry, if you only spend $100 of your bids on that 55-inch Sony LED HDTV, you will be using your left over $700 on your next set of auctions.

    Even though, I mentioned winning a 55-inch HDTV, which I have won several. Only buy these for yourself. You really want small expensive consumer electronics to make money because you must incur an expense fee when you have to pay for the postage once you sell that item on Amazon. Quibids sends everything to you, tax free, free shipping and 100% full manufacture’s warrenty.

    They are very legit because they make a lot of money off the 98% of the people that either cannot follow instructions or most likely are NOT WILLING to follow instrctutions.

    LikeI said before, I am working on lesson plans that I may either publish or teach in. 2-day seminar soon. It would take me a solid two days to give you 50% of what I have learned the hard way. Remember, it takes money to make money. If you do not have that kind of extra cash ($10,000 to start) then my rules do not apply to you. My rules are for someone wanting to make an extra $30,000 per year on the side.

    Good luck and don’t get piizzed at me for telling you how to play. I did not make any of these rules. I just discovered them over time.

    There’s no reason to launch ad-hominem attacks on those critical of QuiBids. If anything a rational person would expect the vehement defenders to keep quiet to reduce the competition.

    Saying things like, “there are tricks and techniques that I won’t share… blah… blah… blah..” in forums like this simply don’t make sense.

    Veteran Qubidder says:

    July 25th, 2014 at 3:57 pm

    Quibids is legitimate for those who choose to read instructions. Is it gambling? For me the jury is still out on that one. It depends on the user’s behavior, not the site’s behavior. If done correctly, risk is minimal. Is it possible to come out “ahead”? Yes. Are you likely to come out ahead? Probably not, but it’s not impossible and there are many regular customers of theirs that do come out ahead (there are sites that actually keep track of this stuff). What about my experience? Taking into consideration the price of bids, shipping, GST, comparing the costs I paid (sometimes full retail and sometimes a good deal), I estimate that I have about broken even after a relatively long period of time with dozens of transactions. Here is my personal advice on the site:

    1. First of all, it is indeed a lot of fun. It is risky only if you allow it to be risky. Will you come out ahead? You might. On any given item only one person comes out “ahead”. Anyone who bid using only “real” bids and does not win the item but then uses the amount they bid to buy the item won’t come out behind (yes, they probably could have received a better offer elsewhere, but in doing some price analysis of my own Quibids has not been inflating prices in my opinion).

    2. There are two main ways to lose money on Quibids. The first way is to try to acquire bids through bid voucher auctions. Many people will disagree with me on this but bidding on voucher auctions is a bad idea. You use bids worth $0.60 each to try to bid for a bid voucher package. If you win the auction for the bid voucher package then you can use the bids you won to bid on stuff. If you don’t win the item, you get nothing (bids from bid vouchers can’t be put towards the price of purchasing the item) and ultimately you lose the value of the real bids you used to buy the bid vouchers (in other words, even if you win the auction for the bid vouchers, that is meaningless unless you are successful in winning an auction with the bid vouchers). Going the bid-voucher-route is the “high risk, high reward” route. That’s not for me. The second way to lose money on Quibids is to bid on an item until, at some point, you choose to stop bidding on it and DECIDE not to pay the difference and purchase the item.

    3. Regarding the cost of shipping and GST (or other taxes). *Newsflash!* These two things typically apply to any online purchases. This isn’t unique to Quibids. If you’re comparing the cost of buying it at a discount store then make sure you consider your gas and time in the equation as well. Some people live in remote locations where purchasing online makes sense (whether it’s Quibids, Ebay or elsewhere).

    4. Quality of goods – I’ve purchased many items and the quality of the items is wonderful. While you can always come across a lemon, they have been few and far in between for me and I’m very happy with the quality of the items I’ve purchased. This is one part of the site I really appreciate.

    5. Like any type of auction (most all of which I love) only bid on things you intend to purchase otherwise you may be faced with a difficult decision during the auction regarding whether to walk away from your bids and lose what you’ve put into it or purchase something you didn’t want in the first place.

    6. Quibids, in my opinion, is very open and clear on how their site works. I do wish they would provide more of an explanation in their advertising as to how it actually all works and that would reduce the concerns about the advertising versus the perceived “reality”.

    Should you go on Quibids? Ask yourself the same questions you would ask yourself before going shopping – what are your wants and needs and, at the end of the day, what can you afford to spend? Quibids has been around long enough that I believe it’s safe to say it’s here to stay. If you’re not comfortable with purchasing through this means, then there are plenty of other ways for you to part with your hard earned money.

    Veteran, As a long time player myself I agree with everything that you have said except for one thing. There are no taxes to be paid and shipping is always free except for a small fee on gift cards. See you on the bidding sight.

    Terrible!! Don’t do it! I just was curious to see how this works and they’ve tried five times to charge my account…how did they get my account number??? However, today they succeeded to get my card numbers and ss49.95 was charged to me! I am going to the bank to file a dispute and also call the attorney general and Better Business Bureau. Shame on them, and how can people actually get on tv and advertise such a bogus site! Oh, and when you try to call their number, it doesn’t go through. Well, at least this happened to me. I am so po’d beyond belief! Scammers go to hell

    Totally my fault. I didn’t read the instructions. I, too, have seen the commercials. I realized I was being charged $60 for just signing up — couldn’t find a lower amount to click on. However, I didn’t realize the bidding process. I don’t know a thing about gambling. I should have kept it that way. A $60 lesson, and all I have to show for it is a little experience. Save your money and go buy want you want.

    I have been on qui bids for a couple of years now and yes I lost a lot of money at first. But after I learned how it really works I have done really good see first I buy a small bid pack of 27.00 to 45.00 then I bid on the vouchers and you can win them quite of ton ( which I’m not going to tell you how ) but you’ll figure out how oh yeah you use your money which I said is a small package of 27.00 to 45.00 dollars then when you finish getting your vouchers I use them to bid on things which is anywhere from 25 vouchers to 10 vouchers you decide how much you think you might win . If there are like 10 to15 ppl bidding on one item I might try 10 to 15 bids on it now don’t get me wrong it is possible to win that item even though there are a lot of ppl bidding on it. Even though your not using money and are not able to purchase that product ( unless you are using money ) you haven’t spent much to bid on it were as if you were you using money you would feel like you need to keep biding on that item until you had to buy it also I don’t bid on items that are under 50.00 dollars I win quite a lot and I have never paid shipping or tax as it states in there guidelines. And if you have to call customer service they answer quickly and are ready to help it is true they can’t help you after 30 days but you have a warranty card with your item and if you don’t have a receipt you can tell the company you lost the receipt and they usually will help you anyways in my experience. I am very happy with them and continue to use them now if you don’t go over your limit a month you won’t spend very much but if you buy limit busters ( using your money ) then you will spend more

    You people don’t understand what they are really doing. People feel scammed because they don’t win. but when you win your happy. these sites are meant not for every one to get a good deal on the newest product but for one person to win, and that’s what makes it fun, there is no possible way that you can run a company like that and sell example ipad’s for 12.98. you guys are destroying the fun out of trying to get a good deal and the enjoyment of getting a huge percentage of a discount.
    You choose to play! don’t let your judgments effect other people fun. I myself have one starting up and my goal is not to destroy and steal money, but instead provide a source of entertainment that people crave and enjoy.

    If your Rheumatoid Arthritis is so bad that you can’t do anything or even leave your house, how is it that you are able to use a computer? It seems to me that someone who is “severely disabled” and “crippled-up” would not be able to click a mouse or type on a keyboard. I know people who really do have RA who can no longer use a computer, but still manage to take care of themselves and get out of the house instead of making excuses and complaining.

    I suspect your “disability” is fake and that you really do work for Quibids as Educated Bidder2 said. And even if you really do have RA and you really don’t work for Quibids, there is no need to be rude and spiteful to everyone who questions the site. Your overly defensive reaction whenever someone dares criticize Quibids only leads more people (including myself) to conclude that you work for them.

    So Educated Bidder is disabled (crippled-up)and better days have come and gone. That completely explains the focus and passion with which you continue to repeatedly pass judgment on people. And why not? Apparently this is all you have to make yourself feel more intelligent than others making comments about their experience. Kudos to your current contribution to society through this comment page. Keep belittling people on behalf of this auction site, Educated Bitter. I mean Bidder. Your comments only serve to reflect on you and how unfortunate your life must really be. Now, I can completely disregard any other comment you post here, knowing that… well… you really have nothing else to do but sit here and rant.

    Oh, please tell me just what makes it so clear that I work for Quibids? Can’t you think of a better come back than that???
    For your information I am a 64 year old woman who is severely disabled with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I only leave my house to go to the doctor once a month and then my home helper has to take me to do that as I am to crippled-up to get around by myself. I no longer need to be “COOL” or
    “rethink my life” as my better days have come and gone. If you think that Quibids is a scam then I would say that you didn’t take the time to read and learn how it works before jumping to such a conclusion. Either that or you jumped into the auctions and lost because you didn’t know what you were doing. I took the time to EDUCATE MYSELF and have won many an auction. Sure, you can go buy something from Amazon but how much fun will that be? Quibids is pure entertainment if you know what you are doing which obviously you don’t so thank-you for that as you will be one less person for me to compete against. AND BY THE WAY, I have won way, way, more in products than I have spent in money so yes, please please go to Amazon as we don’t need people like you ruining our fun!!!

I was taking a look at these bidding sites and when I seen you have to buy 60 dollars worth of bids when registering I knew to get away from these scammers. People that enjoy these high risks ventures go right ahead and spend those dollars. I probably, in the long, run get almost as good a deal from Amazon.

    Too all of you Ebay lovers. I made a purchase well over 2 months ago and have not yet received my item. I called Ebay and they told me that they are NOT RESPONSIBLE for what the seller does so they would not help me. Talk about a ripoff!!!! At least Quibids moniters their site and will do what it takes to keep their customers happy. I have never had a problem with any item that I have won but, my sister did receive an item that was damaged in the mail. (Package was crushed and item was ruined.) She called Quibids and they replaced the item with no questions asked. They even sent her a postage paid return label so it didn’t even cost her to return the item for a replacement. There is good and bad in everything so stop with the Quibids trashing until you have tried it!!! And people, STOP giving them your credit card information if you don’t know what you are doing. You don’t have to be a member to get the information as it is right there on HELP 101. There is also a LIVE CHAT link that is scrolling across at the top of their website. If you don’t understand what you are reading in Help 101 then do a chat and get your questions answered!!! It doesn’t take a genius to figure this out. Good gravy people, get with the program and educate yourselves!!!!!!!

    Dear Educated Bidder,
    I have read a lot of what you have written here. I also am disabled and do a lot of my shopping online,(about 300 purchases on Ebay and several on Amazon). Your statement is so untrue, both companies do back up the customer. One purchase I made was coming from China, two months went by, hadn’t received item. I called ebay, they told me exactly what to do, which was to file a claim, (they even took the time to explain how to file claim). Once you file a claim, Ebay contacts the seller, if the seller does not take care of problem, Ebay will. They refunded my full payment with no questions asked. Furthermore, a few weeks later I received the item, I called ebay because I felt they should charge the money back to me, but they said no, that I would not need to pay it back. I have bought four items that were very fragile and ended up getting damaged in shipping. Twice my money was refunded in full by seller without filing claims. The other two I did have to file claims, but got money back not long after claims were filed. As far as Amazon, I bought a cell phone case for my daughter, when it arrived she was not happy with the color. It was as pictured, but she is very picky. I contacted Amazon, they sent info to seller, seller refunded money and Amazon followed up to make sure all was taken care of. I don’t know, and honestly don’t think I want to know about Quibids. I don’t like “GAMBLING”, (as you call it) with my money. With Ebay and Amazon I know exactly what I am buying and how much I will pay. I also know I can trust I will get what I pay for or my money back. So I don’t think you should be saying negative comments about these companies that apparently you are not “EDUCATED” on. And lastly, You mentioned GOD in one of your posts. I don’t think GOD would like the way you keep calling these people “stupid” and/or “UNEDUCATED”. Soften you heart and more so your tongue, then you will be “EDUCATED” in common respect when you talk to others.

    I just can’t believe how STUPID some of you people are!!!!! Don’t you know how to read, watch & learn before you jump into this type of gambling? And yes, it is gambling just like going to Vegas. Did you first learn how to play craps or did you just walk-up to the craps table and throw your money down? I have been bidding on Quibids for quite some time now and I have won way more products than I have spent money on to buy the bids. Mostly I win the Voucher Bids so I don’t have to keep buying more bids to keep playing. BUT!!!! before I started I did my research on how it was done and I watched and made list after list of the “DEEP POCKET BIDDERS & THE ONE’S THAT JUST HAVE TO SAY THAT THEY ARE THE WINNER NOT MATTER THE COST!!!!” Now that I have my information, I know when and when not to bid on an item depending on who else is bidding. Most of the items that I have won were free to me as I won them for under .50 and the shipping was free. I have kept track of my buying bids and the items that I have won and I am now $4,857.32 ahead of the game cost. I also have taken note of the best days and times to play so I am not up against so many of the “DEEP POCKET BIDDERS”. Also, every item that I have won has arrived in a timely manner and in great shape. I have not had to return anything. The only thing that I have had to pay for are the gift cards as there is a small processing fee for them. But hey, if I can get a $25.00 Walmart card for .13 plus a dollar for processing then I am still ahead. Also, it is FREE to sign-up but NOWHERE does it say that you will get your first 100 bids for FREE!!! It does cost $60.00 for 100 bids. Read before you jump-in and this is not in the fine print. Also, to those of you that are disabled, unemployed, on Welfare, loosing you home, can’t feed your children etc., stay out of my way as this is entertaintment for me. I have worked my due time and I am now retired honestly collecting my retirement and using my investments and savings to enjoy this much earned retirement. I do many things that I have earned the right to do and just one of these things is playing on Quibids. If you don’t work or haven’t put in your time then don’t cry over money lost that you couldn’t afford to loose in the first place!!!! AND NO, I DON’T WORK FOR QUIBIDS!!! I am just an everyday person like most of you are but I have done my research and know what I am doing when it comes to bidding on Quibids. Take this information for what it is worth to you but remember, YOUR CAN’T FIX STUPID SO STOP YOUR DISGUSTING WHINNING AND STAY OFF OF THE SIGHT!!! The less of you loosers there are the better it is for me to win more GREAT STUFF!!!

    Your “severe, debilitating arthritis” certainly does not seem to limit the VAST amount of posting you do on a seemingly daily basis in your defense of QuiBids!! But…. If you are doing so spectacularly well on QuiBids, wouldn’t you logically want to keep as many other potential bidders AWAY from QuiBids, so that they would not compete against you when you bid? Why would you possibly post DOZENS posts containing helpful hints about how to bid, the fact that it is necessary to study bid patterns to win items, etc etc? You defend QuiBids like it is your child, or your religion… you are unnaturally defensive of the site, and strangely hostile to anyone critical of QuiBids.

    Hi someone purched this from me, but I can tell you where I got it from.
    I got 3 of these from quibauctions.com and I resold them for some extra money.
    The trick is to watch for bidding to slow down and then put in a bid. That’s what I do and I win most of the time.

    All the best

    I also have a strange story to tell. I won two auction right off and have two items coming worth $50 but I immediately lost the next auctions in a suspect way. I would bid at the very end
    and it would close but take my bid. Also same auctions would show up while I was bidding already sold for ridiculous amounts. I think it was ploy to keep you bidding. I also noticed the same dozen names were the ones winning but couldn’t figure out how. I only lost $10 but I don’t want to waste more money trying to figure out how to win.


    Educated Bidder says:
    April 29th, 2014 at 10:47 pm

    I started to read and comprehend in the 1st. grade but it is quite clear to me that most of you that are here making negative comments did not. First off you DID BUY 100 bids for $60.00 so you can’t say that you didn’t order anything when you signed-up. Yes, the sign-up is FREE but not the bids. Go back and read the instructions! 2nd. the auctions don’t CLOSE, they say SOLD and if your bid was kept then you would have been the last bidder and would be the winner! 3rd., there are alot of auctions for the same item being bid on so everyone has a chance to get what they want! Lets say that 20 people are bidding on a new TV. Do you really think that the very same 20 people are going to go bid on that same TV in another auction while they are still bidding on the 1st. one??? Just think about that for a minute, I’ll wait for your brain to get it. You can’t just jump into the auctions and expect the rest of us to drop out just so you can be the winner when we have spent our hard earned money also trying to win the item. It is called gambling for a reason and it is FUN! If you don’t have the time or patients to learn how to play the game then stay away. Just because you are a looser doesn’t mean that you have to spoil the fun for the rest of us that did our homework before signing up and have won LOTS & LOTS of the auctions. Yes, sometimes you do have to wait a few hours for the auction that you want to come up for play but they can’t run ALL of the auctions at the same time. Do all trains on the same track run at the same time? DUH!!! And to those of you that have filed these so called LAW SUITS, please please be fair and let us know just how that turns out for you. I would love to know who won that AUCTION!!!LOL,LOL. And no, I do not work for Quibids so please try to think of a more intellegent come back if you are capable. Good Luck in your everyday life as it is quite obvious that you will need it when you can’t even read and comprehend simple instructions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    For some items they make it very tempting to give it a try because they offer a decent price and free shipping. If its something you intended to purchase at a store anyway, you might think you have nothing to lose. You’d be wrong!! For an item such as a TV, game console, Mac, etc, it can take up to 5 hours to make it to the end. Think about it, 5 hours staring at your computer clicking the mouse every 5 to 10 seconds! There are better ways to spend your time. Additionally, three times now I’ve gotten to the point where I’ve bid so much I’m forced to stop (when you’ve purchased the amount of bids equal to the cost of the item) and immediately after the auction mysteriously ends with a winning bidder. I’m almost certain this has to be a fake bidder. Of couse you can use the buy now option, but you end up paying more than you would at a store, and you’ve wasted your time!

    Qui bids is the biggest scam in the world. I tried to turn the page last night to get off their site and was charged $60 so I could have 100 bids stored-like I would do business with anyone that there is no way to get ahold of them. If I weren’t so furious right now, I would laugh on how stupid I was. If you call the # given (and there are several) you will get the same message stating they are out of the office at this time and to call back-that’s after they have introduced themselves a being the largest “Penny Auction” in the world. But state to c/b later when all of them around the world get back to the office. I wasn’t interested in bidding on anything-I was just trying to get out of the web site. I just rad numerous blogs that are identical to mine. In short, do not wonder if this site (Qui bids)is a scam IT IS ONE THE BIGGEST RIPOFFS IN THE NATION!!!

    I had heard about this on TV. I needed a roku, so yesterday I joined up. I knew bids were .60, but on their sign up page, the only package they offer is 100 for $60!I really didn’t want that many, but I was suckered in. So I went to the auction page to check it out. I figured out how to look for the roku, but there wasn’t an auction until almost midnite.Well, I began playing around in the auctions, and before I knew what had happened, 30 bids were spent, and all I had to show for it was some cheap earrings that nobody else wanted! Hey, but they only cost me a penny! So, when my roku went up, I jumped right in. Fully prepared to go the distance. Well, they have this incredibly annoying and unfair option of automatic bidding that you can set to start at any amount. So if people have been bidding since the start, when it gets up to a certain amount, this auto-bid jumps in. You can set it to bid how ever long it takes for everyone else to drop out and you win. But of course you have to have a crap load of bids. So this jerk whose not even online at the time can outbid you, no matter what you do. Once you see the auto-bid, you may as well drop out.So rather than loose all that I invested (not to mention the time), I opted to buy it. Instead of it costing about $80, the total cost for me was $107.99!!!! I don’t have that kind of money, I’m unemployed, going back to school, and was just trying to save some money (all I have is my income tax return). I’ve made some big mistakes, but quibids is right up there at the top!!!

    Valerie, obviously you have never bid before. You place the highest bid amount you are willing to go, and leave it, it automatically stops at the amount you placed. I’m a vendor and am tired of hearing people offering very little money for an item that is worth ten times their offer. Their excuse when I say no is that they don’t have money. Well, then, don’t bid, don’t shop, don’t buy. Expecting others, trying to make a few dollars to add to their social security, suffer to make you happy. This may come as a surprise to you, but the whole country is broke, not just you. In reference to your dumb statements: suckered in: no; midnight: too late for you; cheap earrings: you bought them; jerk: unlike what you are; lost time: you are unemployed, use the time to look for a job.

    If you’re unemployed, have living expenses and your only cash is your income tax return, your first mistake was wanting to buy a frivolous item like a Roku in the first place. Spending any money at all on items that aren’t necessities is a really bad idea when you’re unemployed.

    I wish i could give QuiBids a 0! A friend of mine who is very into auction sites recently told me about Quibids and was raving about it. I was skeptical( I don;t even use Ebay) but agreed to take a look at their website. I saw all their “Endorsements” supposedly from the Wall Street Journal, and Time Magazine and decided to put Quibids into the search bar on those websites to see if i could find the “reviews” Quibids were “quoting”. Nothing. Most, if not all of those reviews are falsified. Quibids is a complete and utter scam, so glad that people are realizing this and posting warnings for others! I told my friend, and gave her the link to this site and she checked her account, Quibids ha taken over $200 for no apparent reason! She called the bank and they refunded the fraudulent charges, apparently they get a lot of complaints about Quibids! Hopefully this means the Fed’s will soon be investigating and this scam will be shut down for good!

    Quibids is not only a scam, it offers poor quality goods. After losing an auction, I had put enough money into the item, I couldnt’ justify throwing the money away. I purchased the set of knives and when it arrived (ginsu knives) they couldn’t even slice through paper.

    I have repeatedly tried to work with customer service who will refund me all of $10 and change, not the full retail amount. Now they simply ignore me. I’m going to see what I can do through legal channels because I’m just pissed I was pulled into this obvious scam.

    Quibids should be either regulated or shut down by the government. If online poker isn’t allowed, why is this?

    I intend to take this one piece of merchandise and go as far as I can with it; then do my best to complain to my representatives, both state and federal, about Quibids.

    I only wish I could have read these reviews before I went there. Oh, and try posting something to their facebook page – it gets erased as quickly as you post it!! Please people go to atty general, congressmen, senators, whomever, and get these people shut down!

    Too bad I couldn’t rate it less than 1! Sites like these are terrible. The site owners like to “shill bid” on their own items. I know for a fact that its done on 99% of these sites. They sucker you in with 100 bids to start then trick you to where you are actually paying for those 100 bids. It cracks me up how these penny auction sites rope people in to thinking they are getting a steal. Guess what, YOU’RE NOT fool!

    QuiBids has to be the absolutely worst bidding process I have ever tried, My account was automatically charged $60 just for registering, which they neglect to mention on that home page with the overwhelming endorsements blind siding you. I was under the misguided impression that the first 100 bids were free…WRONG. They won’t refund my money because I used the bids so now all I’m left with is an expensive lesson and nothing to show for it. Didn’t matter what I tried bidding on, everything was way more than I would have paid retail with the cost of 0.60 per bid and only going up in 0.01 increments. I read their recommended pages, but seriously, you better be rich before you go to their site expecting to get any type of “deal”. Avoid QuiBids at all costs and go buy the item outright somewhere else. It will save you time and money!

    Quibids looks like a scam. To understand the scam, you must understand how quibids makes money.

    1) The general idea is that a bid costs 60 cents. That’s right, in order to bid, you must pay 60 cents each and every time you bid.
    2) Each bid increments the selling price by 1 cent, less frequently 2 or 5 cents.
    3) The maths is simple. An item listed at $286 at Amazon sells typically for $21. This earns Quibids the following:

    2100 cents ($21 end price) x 60 cents (per bid @ 1 cent per bid) = $1260.
    Add the $21 final item sale price = $1260 + $21 = $1281.

    That’s right, a $286 item is sold at Quibids $1281 + transportation and several days delay. It is in no way competitive with Amazon.

    Is that real life example not enough to convince you it is a scam? $1281 for a smartphone listed at Amazon for $286 This is a real scam by any standard, not a fiction. And it never gets better at Quibids.

    It’s not all. I suspect Quibids will never let you get a prize unless you spent 2 or 3 times its value on bids. They will make sure some fictional bidder gets it. As with an online casino, the fictional bidder is a house robot that will systematically outbid you until you spent your last penny. You will NEVER get the prize if you haven’t already paid for it several time.

    There is more. Each bid extends the bidding time by 10 to 15 seconds. A logical and safe tactic consists in bidding in the last 2 seconds before timeout. This gives other bidders the time to bid before you, so you don’t have to spend 60 cents that will increase the price by on cent that somebody else is willing to do for you. Tough luck, at one point, Quibids will just refuse to take your bid into account 1 or 2 seconds before the bidding time has elapsed. It will declare it sold to another bidder, very certainly a robot – a fictional house bidder.

    Stay away from Quibids. This is just another offshore casino like scam. And, it won’t be long before they are driven out of business by angry customers.

    SCAM ! I have to tell my story… I’ve been on qubids for over a year, I have won a few things but paid dearly for most. I was in a bidding war for 100 bids…I had over 400 “voucher bids” in my account and ran up against a person that kept bidding against me. anyway, the 2 of us ended up all alone for almost 2 1/2 hrs…I was left with 30 bids when they quit bidding. then out of the blue someone else started bidding (even though the auction was locked) this person hadn’t placed a bid in that auction until then (he had a very different name and I would’ve noticed) anyway, I won but lost 350 bids doing so. I checked a site called all penny auctions that lists all bidder’s bids, won/lost auctions etc. and looked up the 1 who kept bidding against me. there is no way that they mathematically could have had that many “voucher bids” themselves…they hadn’t won enough voucher bid auctions to compete to the level they did. quibids must have shill bidders. I noticed also that this person is still bidding and with “voucher bids” to boot ! I contacted “customer support” asking how it was possible that this person could bid this much and have not received any reply from them (if it was legit they would’ve explained to me how this person had that many bids) remember…if a person is using real bids then they automatically go to “buy it now” when they reach the items value…

    Hey Kevin,
    Have you ever heard of gamblers anonymous? Anyone that would spend 350 bids to win 100 bids has a real problem. You need to learn when to back down and wait for another auction!!! It’s all about control not GREED!!! It’s bidders like you that give these auction sites a bad name.

They have this new ipad @ $17.57 and that seems not to end. At that rate, the per bid cost probably means zbiddy makes a lot more on an item that seems not to really be available in their penny auction. The illusion, and isn’t the business model great for them. A product in demand for a wounderful price, wow

But I did. (2)I want to thank each and every one of you who blogged in on this subject and especially, the host ReviewOpedia. Your comments and feedback, made me check my online account immediately after reading the bad experiences each of you went through and there it was! those people had charged my account twice for a total of $120.00 and I have NOT even posted a bid on anything!! I immediately took action to dispute the charges and had them removed from my account. This was the day after I had signed up with no activity.

    Everytime you use a credit card to buy anything, it is charged right away. Ever try reserving a hotel room without proof of payment? Or leaving Walmart without proof of payment? I use Paypal so that does away with putting my credit card information on-line. You bought 100 bids for your $60.00 so why don’t you try bidding with them and have some fun? Who knows, you just might win something but first take the time to read and learn how the auction is run. How can you down-grade something that you have never tried? And to all of you that are complaining, click on the sign-up now tab and right there is a news video telling you that the price goes up one penny with every bid that is placed, BUT!!!!, it also tells you that each bid does cost you .60 each. If you people would take the time to do some research you just might learn a thing or two!!!!!!

    Bidding has got to be totally rigged. If you watch the bidding go on there will be certain people bidding back and forth. I bought 300 bids and decided to go all in on a TV. Every time I would watch and wait until 1 or 2 seconds were left if no one had placed a bid. Each time when I would bid the same 4 or 5 people would bid immediately after my click. As long as I did not bid they were no where to be found. As soon as I would need to bid they were right behind me. To me it is a total scam. If you are involved bid and see what you think. Not angry just glad I observed and hopefully can pass on to other people. Like stated other places, stay with E-bay type auctions.

I and three associates have been using and monitoring this site for 10 days and keeping hard copies of the auctions and taping the auctions. When we fed the bidder names into a statistical equation what we found were an enormous number of fictional bidders. We are still monitoring the site and plan to turn over our findings to the Federal Trade Commission. They are making enormous amounts of money by deceit. We are also planning to write and publish our findings. BEWARE and take care of yourself.

    All you guys shitting on Quibids and other penny auction sites reminds me of the people who preach about the dangers of marijuana. Don’t knock it until you try it and don’t do it until you do your research and know the ins and outs of the system and how it works. I did this and I ended up maxing out my daily limit for winnings on the first day I started and earning about a dozen or so “badges” as well (these give you a handful of freed bids each). People get upset because they bid stupidly and waste their money, but the fault is theirs and theirs alone. I could go into details for what is the ideal way to bid, but I can’t see why I should share my secret for success with a bunch of whiny asses on the internet. Not to mention, whoever wrote this article is either spreading misinformation or straight-up lying. From quibids.com: “QuiBids offers free shipping on all products shipped in the US. We currently do not offer international shipping options. Certain products may not qualify for free shipping, but the rates will always be noted on their product page, auction page, and throughout the checkout process.” This isn’t misleading either. Shipping is free on the vast majority of their items. Not to mention that while Quibids isn’t an authorized dealer, nor is Ebay. If people would actually check out the help and Quibids 101 sections, they’d find that the company’s model is to make the process as transparent and competitive as possible. Quibids is accredited by the better business bureau and been audited by another third party to verify that there is no fraud. You can’t make such claims about Ebay, where any buyer or seller could easily rip you off.

    they are not only scam artist but illegal ones at that twice this week i won a nice item after i paid they sent me an email on both saying oops we don’t have that item and offered me an exchange item i did accept one the other the only item offered was cigars or my money back, since i quit smoking 4 years ago so i took the refund and i am positive it is against the law to auction anything you don’t own it’s called fraud, they also would not allow me to reenter an auction i was bidding on because it went locked to present bidders only, a couple days later i was winning a locked auction and three new bidders entered, i have since quit

    Wait, wait, wait. Did you read the article good enough? You should. eBay is the Third Party monitoring bids, but not the seller. That is done by people outside of eBay, and a lot are actual merchants themselves (especially for the higher end products) who, from my experience, are licensed dealers. So the reason why eBay isn’t a licensed dealer is because they are not a dealer, they are just a medium for online auctions. Quibid is not that. As for your “anyone can rip you off on eBay” argument, its ridiculous. I’ve bought memory cards and such from eBay, and in the few instances they were fake (Made and distributed by Chinese companies in my case), I made a claim to eBay and they resolved it perfectly every time. I don’t use eBay much, but when I do, eBay is pretty safe and transparent.

    And your marijuana analogy is not only stupid but incorrect in this context. A lot of the comments above you are people who have experience with the site. So they are knocking what they’ve tried.

    I also see a lot of one star ratings on the comments that are negative towards Quibids. I see this, even though the amount of negative comments are grossly the majority opinion here. So either we have a lot of Quibids employees rating these comments badly or just one passionate Quibidder who is the only one lowing these ratings. Or, in the very unlikely case, every Quibid supporter is silent for some reason. So, whoever is reading this, if you happen to be that person, don’t give me a negative rating because you can’t take the comments. I’m not saying anything worth a negative rating (unless you’re the person who is negatively rating every single comment simply because its critical of Quibids, and in that case, you’re pathetic).

    so in closing, I’m not criticizing QuiBids, I’m criticizing your entire, invalid argument, which can shed light on QuiBids itself because of your terrible argument.

    By the way, “transparent” means that it’d be completely clear, telling them to go to a help page(QuiBids 101) to show them defeats that argument.

    I wish I had seen this site before I joined QuiBids.

    I didn’t understand the pay-to-bid format, and thought I had some free bids, and thought I could learn about the site by bidding.

    So this morning, I was shocked to see a $60 charge on my debit card statement and I didn’t win anything! I guess it could be worse, but I am retired, disabled, and this will really put a dent in my month.

    This is not an auction, Everything the writer said is true.

    I have bought and sold on Ebay for 6 years, and everyone complains about the fees, but you don’t get charged for bidding, you bid what you want, you get something for your money, and you are protected from scammers.Ebay tries to prevent scamming, tries to protect buyers and sellers, and tries to priovide a safe place to get items at a discount, or for people who can’t go out and shop, for whatever reason.

    QuiBid is another online scam.

    Yes you can win items at a discounted price if you are lucky. However just be willing to let Quibids pocket all the profit. Look at the bidding like this. Currently I see an Omaha steaks package with bidding at apprx. $13.00 and it retails for around $200.00. The bidding may get up to $15.00 and that would be a great deal for someone. Now, Quibids take is this. Since the bids cost .60 each and there has been 1500 bids( yes that is one thousand five hundred bids ) multiply that by .60 x 1500 equals $900 spent on bids for a $200 package. Who made out. Quibids and the winning bidder, unless of course the bidder spent 300 bids to win that item. Then the bidder more or less breaks even.

    Caution!!! Quibids lists multiple items under the same Auction to get more bidding action out of users. Look at the items across the top. They are also listed under the category for that item. You may be bidding on a $40 dollar mixer and bidding against another person bidding on a $40 pair of heads phone.


    Educated Bidder says:
    April 29th, 2014 at 11:55 pm

    And once again I will say that you have to know how to read and comprehend the instructions. Carl, did you read the help section or just jump in thinking that you were going to take us all by storm and be the winner of every auction without knowing what you were doing? If you had read the Help 101 section then you would know that there are 100′s of more items that you can bid on in that same auction but you have to know where to look to find them. EDUCATION IS THE KEY AND THAT’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT!!!!!!
    As far as the Bid-0-Matic goes, I have severe Rheumatoid Arthritis so it is very painful for me to keep clicking the bid button. The Bid-O-Matic allows me to put in my bids and let the computer place my bid when it is my turn in line. We are all limited to 25 bids at a time on this device so it isn’t like I can set it and go to bed for the night. There is no advantage over other bidders who are clicking their bids one at a time other than it saves me ALOT OF PAIN IN MY FINGERS!!!
    And again, EDUCATION is the key people before you open your mouth and
    make a fool out of yourselves when you don’t know what you are talking about. P.S.–Do the Vegas casinos give you free chips or do you have to buy them before you can play on their table games? Nothing is free and neither are the Quibids bids!!!! Get with the program or SHUT-UP as we are all tired of you people that whine and cry about how you were “CHEATED” out of money that you evidently can’t afford to loose anyway.

    I have a question. Let’s say you purchase that 100 Bid pack at the cost of $60. OK… that means each penny bid you make is costing you 60 cents. Now, let’s take that IPad (in this article) which QuiBids shows retailing at $499 for the most basic model.

    Here’s my question. Let’s say I come into the site and see this item out there, and there was 10 seconds left. The item is currently at $22.53 and I make a single 1 cent bid. The item is now at $22.54 and the clock has reset to 20 seconds left as it starts counting down to zero again. Nobody else bids (yeah yeah… like I would really be that lucky!!!), and I win. How much is this IPad costing me? Is it costing me $22.54 plus 60 cents (deducted from my 100 bid pre-paid package) plus shipping and handling?

    You should start on small items to get the hang of bidding. You may find that it’s not as hard as it seems. Go for the $15 $25 gift cards. Do not use vouchers is real bids. Then if you do not win you can just purchase the remainder of that gift card. You only pay sales tax on the auction price. And shipping is free. I have one so many big item Merchandise.

    Jimmy Hoffa says:
    August 22nd, 2013 at 2:28 pm

    Yes. That’s exactly how it works. And, you’re also correct in assuming you’d never be that lucky. The only people who win on Quibids are those with massive stockpiles of Voucher Bids who’ve been on the site for years, or newcomers who are willing to spend a small fortune to gather up massive amounts of Real Bids.

    Stay away from Quibids.

    There is a lot of small print here. Beware – the successes are far fewer than the failures. You can lose a ton of money trying to be the winning bidder, and you can lose it quickly! They charge you 60 cents for every bid, and bids increase by as little as 1 cent. You literally can make hundreds of bids to save a few bucks, and only win when all the other bidders stop, so they’re losing 60 cents each time as well. What a scam! I was a member for about 10 minutes, and lost more than $30. Gamblers should especially stay away from quibids.

    When you sign up, they ask for your full DOB and credit card info. Just to register! How many lawyers do they have on staff to protect customers from ID theft?

    I have accounts with eBay and Amazon and they’ve never asked me to do that. Needless to say, when I asked them to close my account, they told me they’d credit back my card. I will be watching it like a hawk to see if they actually do. Shysters.

    I don’t think that Quibids is deliberately scamming people. It doesn’t lie nor falsely advertise stuff. There IS, however, a lot hidden in their terms and conditions. However, the company has to make money somehow.

    Looking at it from a viewpoint of mathematical probability, it’s designed in a way so that not everybody can win. This is how they turn a profit. If everybody won it would not make money. Think about it in comparison to a casino. Who wins at the end of the day? Average Joe or the Casino?

    But here’s a mad idea. Why not just save up your pennies and buy it for real? Surely it’ll be be worth so much more if you’ve worked hard to save up and buy it that way? hmm? Why is everybody always looking for some crazy deal? In my experience if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Typical western rhetoric of, I WANT I WANT I WANT. What about what y’all NEED? hmm?

You think retail is the actual price the store buys product items and resale them for a profit? LMBO!! silly silly people. Now if this site has other dealing which are out of context to actually scam people such as shillers bidding then that is another issue or shipping issues but the business concept is great just need to find the right people who actually runs their penny auctions with morals.

    The other thing is you people are offended because of them not display what they make off profit??? come the hell on I mean how many business owners tell you that? lol You have an impulse and its being offered in a competitve way that is enjoyable for some but not all losers! lol

    I can just hope QuiBids continue to get better as a business learning from the complaints what to adjust for people but hey like anyone else they want to profit as you would as well if you even retailed something.

Needless to say I have been on the computer for 4 hours straight watching how the bidding happens. Kind of like online poker how pepole use the single bids and then the Bid-omatic to try and bluff people out of bidding. I hate to say it but I think I could get very addicted to this. Either dumb luck or whatever but I won on half of my bids!!! $.01 for 15 more bids, $.01 for a Orlimar pitching wedge and $.01 for a Wusthof 979779 Classic 6-Inch Cook’s Knife. I am sure this is not stuff that other people want but I will take it! Also since my bid was less than .50 its free and its also free shipping and delivery? I understand the bid costs $.60, but it was not charged to me and they are delivering the items to me for free! I also now have 115 bids versus the 100 I bought for $60 to start. I just started today so it could change but right now I love it.
    Secondly just because a business is making money on some of the items because a ton of people want it and are fighting over it with their wallet, doesnt make it a scam. Its a win win for the company and the one who actually wins the bid. Again, i dont understand all of the hate on this board. Am I missing something?

    Quibids is not a scam, BUT they have changed their policy as of Oct 4, 2012. The new policy states that you are actually bidding to choose from a set of items.

    THIS MEANS EVERYONE IS BIDDING ON THE SAME THINGS! Do not overlook this!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It seems like you have a chance, but you aren’t just bidding against everyone who wants an iPad, but everyone who wants an iPad, or computer, or TV, or stereo, times 40+ different items. Obviously someone wins, and in the end you get to choose your product, and it may even be a great deal, but you end up bidding against 40x the number of people.

    For details on the new policy, see below.

    Not a scam…. it’s like gambling though…. I have won several items… the thing I warn people about, is that it is a huge time sucker…if you think this is a scam…. you haven’t watched the site long enough. Another thing… there are some people with unlimited resources… probably a business owner reselling the items… I know their handles… when they bid…I stay away… they will always bid until retail….and if you don’t plan on paying retail… don’t bid against guys like this. If you plan on buying something… I would recommend buying it through quibids… if you bid on something, and end up paying retail, there is no shipping and handling.

    I bet you work for QB because it is a scam. Nothing has been updated since October 4, 2012 as you say. The auction is still misleading to the public saying the winning bid was $22.54 instead of the TRUTH of $1352.40 you QB worshiper. How come QB doesn’t advertise the TRUTH as to each bid is actually 60 cents per bid, and everyone buy’s packs of bids so ANYONE can win as long as they don’t run out of dollar bids. Ebay is THE most honest auction site because people bid to what they ARE willing to pay unlike QB forcing only a penny increment. QB is a big*** scam! Stay far far away fro ANY penny auction sites because they are making 3 to 4x the original price than store price. The person bidding is better off going to store and buying the product new.

    A complete scam. They should be arested and shut-down.

    The computers control who wins through “ghost” bidders. These guys are on all the time day and night so it can’t be a person. At first they make you “win” something that is worth less than the $60 they initially take. Then they start to take all your money and hope you don’t catch on and go on to buy some more bids.

    Just like the casino slots: what numbers come up and who wins or lose is completely controlled by computers to assure the house wins much more than it takes in. Sure somtimes you win but in the end you lose. Both are total scams.

He is just like a normal real bidder like you. If you are still in doubt you can check his profile on AP site and see how many platforms he’s been registered to aside from Qui.

After you give your credit card details it then passes you to the next page and guess what happened I was already charged $60. You’re not even warned because you, well I was instantly charged without warning.

    People need to answer for these scams and the punishments need to be ALOT more severe.

    I recently lost 260 dollars on Quibids. I choose the buy now option on some gift cards to recover some money thrown away through bids. First time logging in there was a card that no one bid on, so of course I bid the second time around and won. My computer would freeze just in time for the bid to close and be taken by “another consumer” on 8 bids following.
    In the end I won 15 Wal- Mart, 10 Land’s End card, Hand blender and a 25 Buca cards that “no one bid on”. I used the buy now option to order 2 /50 Wal-Mart cards, 2/10 Shell cards to go with my winnings. Out of all of that I got two 10. Land’s End gift cards and two 25.Buca di Beppo cards. Places I don’t dine or shop. As for 130.00 in WalMart gift cards and 20 Shell Gas cards and the blender NEVER GOT IT.

    Quibids customer service says, they don’t track gift cards so, they can’t verify I didn’t get them so they aren’t responsible

    It sounds to good to be true because it is. Can’t prove it’s a scam or that it’s rigged to the t, but shady bids is what they should call the site
    * also beware my computer needed a tune up and a system restore to get all the crap off from that site.

    but ill go ahead and describe my experiences encase it could be helpful. i signed up for Qubids just to give it a try. then a day later i see a significant amount of money taken out of my account from Qubids. Yup Qubids did what everyone is always worried of when signing up for stuff is when a company puts important information in small print stating that that amount of money would taken out. I look all around the website before i sign up to see if it stated anything about money being taken out. no where on the website it clearly states.
    then i did the online chat they said they are going to be able refund my money then when i expressing my complaint to them how its just bad business to screw people over, they actually stopped the conversation then deactivated my account for just complaining to them. I hope NO ONE buys from the company because its just common sense, dont try to screw people over, ebay before i use my money i have like 3 windows pop up clearly stating im about to spend my money.

    In the old days companies like this would have been shut down for defrauding the public. It’s a sign of the times that they advertise all over the internet and advertise on TV as if they are legitimate. They use bots which corrupt the bid. I read a computer programmers blog describing how he did this. You have to buy tons of tickets in order to bid. You will not end up purchasing your item and it will be resold to the same company Quibids under an employee or relative’s name. They make money off the bidding, making you spend for an object that you have no hope of winning and waste your time. Other reviewers have noted there is no third party overseeing the corporation. You will be scammed for joining fees, bidding tickets, and your credit card number. An IPAD for 24 dollars? If it’s too good to be true, it isn’t true. They play to your greed and gullability.

    If it looks, smells and quacks like a duck…

    Any fool knows that no business stays in business to sell items for pennies on the dollar. What they don’t tell you in the very slick commercials with the hottie looking very skinny and sultry, is that each of their “pennies” equals $.60 of your money. The auction is not controlled by bidders — it’s controlled by robots who will force the price up at whatever increment they determine will make the most money for Quibids. In the end, you pay AT least as much and usually more, than the item actually costs. Oh — don’t forget taxes, shipping and handling.

    This site, as all the penny auction sites, are nothing but ripoffs and should be investigated by the Consumer Protection Agency. Anyone who gives this site anything more than 1 star is either a fool or works for the company. STAY AWAY FROM QUIBIDS. Use eBay, where they have an independent 3rd party monitoring bids.

    Quibids is not a scam. Coming from me, ive spent over 1500 dollars in bids. You win some u lose some. You cannot predict the behavior of another bidder that much, but u can observe who are the deep pocketed bullies and those who wont stop bidding. Ive won several 50 dollar gift cards totalling under 20 bucks with bids, processing fee, and closing price. Ive also lost some and paid 52 dollars for a 50 dollar cars bcuz of the 2 dollar processing fee. Ive won a 200 dollar office chair for around 25 bucks and got bid up and paid full price for another. Its chance and strategy simple as that. If you win the item for one bid, which I have more than once, they still ship it to you. For example my 15 dollar home depot card, I won with one bid. I paid 60 cents plus 1 cent closing cost and a 50 cents processing fee. Total I paid $1.11 for a card I gave to my mother already. Just bcuz u suck at something or dont understand it doesnt make it a scam. Its a complex and confusing journey, but aside from the mechanics of it, its real. It is what it is.

Each bid is worth .60–cents so 150 bids X .60 = $90.00. What a profit when 25 bid voucher goes for $15.00! $15.00 adds to only 25 bids X .60

    If you think strategically, you’ll understand why Quibids (and similar penny auction sites) are a no-win game, and best avoided…

    In a game where you have to pay $0.60 per penny bid, but can always buy the item at full retail price, the optimal strategy is to enter an auction being prepared to last as long as it takes and keep bidding until you either: a) win the item, or b) buy it at retail price. That way you “can’t lose” (you were prepared to buy the item anyway) and might win the item at a discount.

    The problem is, the optimal strategy for you is also the optimal strategy for someone else- those bidding against you. So the net result is that you will likely end up buying the item at the “buy it now” price, which as we’ve heard, is higher than the fair market price you could have bought it for somewhere else.

    In this way, it’s like the “Prisoner’s Dilemma”, in that each person, by following what’s in their own best interest insures that everyone loses. The only way to “win” at this game is through cooperation, i.e. fixing bids, as in, I will let you win this one if you let me win the next one.

    The auction companies make sure this can’t happen by attracting many bidders, limiting the communications between bidders, and if all else fails, bidding against you themselves (shill bids).

    In other words, the game is rigged so that you are likely to lose. That’s why people are comparing this to gambling, where the house has an advantage. Just as in a casino, it’s “possible” that you could walk away with a great deal. But on average, everyone loses.

    To win this kind of game would require that the people bidding against you are dumber than you are. This is known as “the greater fool theory”, as in “I may be dumb to try this, but the other guy is dumber than me, so I can win”.

    This kind of thinking is the basis of many con games. People are greedy enough to think they can win at the expense of someone else who is not as smart as they are, but all the while it’s the one setting up the game that is fleecing everyone.

    By adding complexity to the game, like being able to purchase bids at discount, Quibids is trying to obfuscate the basic nature of the con, and encourage people to think they can get the edge over other bidders. And they are trying to position this kind of bidding as “entertainment”. After all, if you are having fun, you might not notice that you are playing a no-win game.

    I’ve talked to Matt, the person who created the quibids websites and told me that he uses bots to make bids meaning computers automatically bid on items without having to pay anything. This occurs on most bidding items but not all items in order to show some “legitimacy” of the business. The site is structured so that the website grinds as much money as possible from users before you win anything(if anything). Stay away from this website and all penny bidding websites.

    I spent one whole night bidding on an $8000.00 dollars television set and lost to someone else. I lost over $2000.00 dollars on that particular bid.

    Then I had to go and get a TV from a store for another %2000.00 dollars. Something I should’ve done in the first place.

    I did not know about the 0.60 cents which I paid for every cent I bid. Only after I lost my money then I realized that.

    I took the time to check quibids site out, but overlooked that one has to pay 0.60 cents for every cent that was bid on any item. This is something one does not realize until one signs up and starts bidding.

    At the time I joined quibids there were no reviews, and the only way to know if there were anything hidden was to join their site and bid.

    The first thing you learn is NOT to go bidding on an $8,000 tv set right out of the box.

    You need to learn how to be savy using the auction, who some of the players are, how they bid, etc.

    Newbies can get hammered if they don’t start off small and work up to bigger items.

    I’m being dead honest that I have gotten over $2,500 of retail product for less than $300.

    However, I started really small, and worked my way up. I learned when to hold em, and when to fold em. It’s not that hard to do a little homework.

    Personally, I really like Quibids. I just don’t live on it. I use it when I have something I might want, and watch several auctions first to see what the bidding trends are, and the players. That’s how I’ve had great success. Don’t complain because you didn’t do your do diligence… but sorry to hear about the loss of your $2k. That sucks.

    This is a response to the comment by “PLEASE Buyer Beware” on Feb 1st.

    You guys aren’t seeing all aspects of the Penny Auction strategies here. Fair enough. It takes research and time to learn it all. There was a time when penny auctions were simple but now, in order to be successful, there are complex methods and strategies to learn.

    What you’re most likely not seeing is, according to mad2222man’s stats on AllPennyAuctions, (a Penny Auction watch site keeping tabs on many P.A. sites and bidders), he spends the vast majority of his time bidding on Bid Voucher packs, buying them for the most part at a fraction of the price they are worth. Many of these bid packs come with Gameplays, (Quibids has online games where you can win more bids). Gameplays on the average pay out 30+ bids giving mad2222man even more bids for his money.

    In one recent auction for a 250 Bid Pack, he only spent approx. $19.38 which includes the 30 bids he used to get it. (And that price estimate is based on the possibility he bought those 30 bids at a full 60 cents ea.)

    Now let’s say he used 196 of those bids on a 50 bid pack worth $30 in the example above. Here’s the breakdown:

    He used .78 of his 250 bids to win, which would then equate to a $15.12 value, (.78 of the $19.38 he spent). So he got a 50 pack of bids, plus the 54 bids left over from the 250, 104 bids total for approx. $15, not a bad return, I say.

    But still, why the heck would you waste 196 bids to get a total of 104?? Strategy. To the uninitiated he now looks like a badass nutso who’s willing to spend more than the value of what he’s bidding on to get it. Dollar wise, he’s still coming out ahead, maybe even more than in my example. But even more importantly, he’s establishing a REPUTATION as someone you don’t want to bid against.

    He can keep going like this, gaining more and more bids in his bank, so-to-speak. In fact, as his reputation becomes more known, this probably even gets easier for him. Now, all of a sudden, he can enter both Bid Voucher auctions and big ticket item auctions and win them for next to nothing because everyone runs when they see him enter the auction. Not only that, but he probable also has a very large amount of bids he can use on the big ticket item and it still only cost him a fraction of what it’d cost others buying bids at a full $0.60.

    Unfortunately, the people who don’t know this and bid against him will get exceptionally frustrated in their Quibid experience and scream bloody-mary that this is a scam and he’s a Quibid bot etc.

    So what advice can I give you?

    I’ve only become involved in Penny Auctions within the last two months. I haven’t been overly active, mainly because it DOES take time, effort, skill and a bit of luck to succeed at winning the good deals. The one thing I did do though, before jumping in, was watch and learn. And yes…it will consume much of your time. I watched for 3 days before even trying an auction. I also learned quickly that in order to minimize cost you needed to spend the majority of your time winning bid vouchers to gain more bid for less money.

    So if I have anything to say to you, it’s this:

    Watch…Learn…Do Research, learn pique periods and which bidders you don’t want to bid against etc…Use Caution…Set Limits, it’s addictive.

    Enter auctions with the mentality that you’re willing to pay full retail price and be willing to spend at least 1/3rd the retail price in bids to win. Example, a $600 item be willing to spend $200 in bids to win, but you’ll still need to use strategy as to when you enter the auction. This of course changes if you’ve spent the time winning Bid Vouchers at a fraction of the cost, then you can afford many more bids to win an auction.

    Hope this was helpful!

    I joined the site and use it often. In the last month I have saved over $1k in items. I realize that the site is making a ton of money… but, isn’t that the point of any business. However, I do believe it works on the up and up, and in the long run if you’re not an idiot and just bid blindly, you can do well. Know when to hold em, and know when to fold em.

    This is glorified gambling… so if you have that type of addiction, stay as far away as possible.

    I’ve seen allot written about Quibids… and one thing I want to clear up is everything is FREE shipping. Anything under $.50 is automatically free, minus the bids you used to win. I have one several auctions with a couple of bids and gotten a ton of great stuff for free, minus a couple of bucks in bids.

    Decide for yourself… but I’m a fan. I just don’t live on there. I use it when I want something particular and know they carry it.

    I haven’t received any spam and have been a member for a couple of months. I just think people like to see businesses that are successful fail. Make no mistake… this is a business, and they are raking in the money. No question about it. However, if you show some bidding restraint, there are deals to be found. I have found plenty, and have wasted bids at times.

    Being that there are many issues to this site. I have to ask, Why is the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has not even looked into a site like this. Consumers are plugged to send on bids. The Terms or Conditions with Privacy policies are not able to be pulled up before signing up. Statements of “Entertainment” are only found upon signing up. Therefore you have not agreed to the turn terms or conditions which is implied but not truly acceptable. Also, where is the settlement of having a period of notice that allows the consumer a back out clause. With using any credit card you are supposed to have 72 hours canceling time. Again any site that is making 3 times the amount of an item with bots should be terminated. Credit legal issues should be enforcable even for the OK State.

    I actually have not used Quibids but used another penny auction site before. I did research before I paid to get bids and knew what I was getting into so figured if it went bad it was only my fault. I do believe there are bots, but I was able to setup auto bidding and also chose a item that wasnt quite as popular. It was a ipod touch, just lower memory so not alot bid on it and I actually got a great deal and with shipping I paid a total of $25 for a $150-$200 ipod and that was including the bid pack I purchased. It did take a while to recieve it but I did get it and it was new and in orginal package and never had an issue with it. I think people need to research first and thinking your going to get the newest item dirt cheap without spending some money is crazy, think about going for something not as popular but just as nice and you might have the luck I did.

    Hi. I tired quibids after a commercial I saw that stated if you typed in the coupon code you would get 20 free buds or something so I figured there would be no loss for me. I had to enter my info and pay to join anyway. The website had all these ‘ proven endorsements’ so I figured there was no reason not to give it a try. I ended up buying some option that was like $100 or over because it said you get the best price per bid.

    Anyway. I spent like two weeks watching what was going on after my first day trying very obligingly to get an iPad. And I spent almost all of my bids within a half an hour and it seemed to be goin nowhere. It was as if the auction could never win. Once it became clear that this would not end anytime soon and I had plenty of business to take care I I figured I would quickly try to go for an auction to win more bids. I won none of these either. I thought there must be a trick to it etc. Nothing. So like hours later and a major headache I was still sitting on that bloody website neglecting all the things in real life that needed to get done. The thing I there is no way to know when the auction could end because there is no set end time. At the ‘end’ of the bidding / the bidding gets reset a certain amount of seconds every time someone puts in a bid. So it just goes on and on and on.

    Unless your life was entirely dedicated to this website I just don’t see how you could possibly win. I also believe after watching it for weeks that its set up with bots of some kind. Such stress this brought me to. I eventually needed to let go that I have a scam company a hundred bucks for a bunch if stress and zero entertainment. At least you get entertained at a casino. I would feel so much better to gunk this company will be turned in. Can you imagine how much money thy are rolling in here !!!!??? Also they tired to win me back via emails saying I could redeem this or that bullshit. But no way I’m falling into this again one hundred is plenty enough from me.

    I too did not like having 67.80 taken from my credit card. All and all, I did quite good, total value of $239.80 (membership, products, tax, shipping) for a total cost of $164.32. But I was lucky to snap a $50.00 gift card for 0.16. Then I didnt care and bid everything on a last auction and lost.

    I am waiting for my gift cards and products. If that materialise without any hitch, then I won. Pure and simple.

    I most certainly will never go back and I will change my information from that site to bogus info. I have already removed/deleted my credit card information.

    Word of advise, look and watch how it works, read all info from the site and the web… then make your call… If you have one ounce of gambling in you, then it’s not for you. Use your logic. The best place to bid, is for vouchers (this will give you power at the end). If there is an item you want, bid on the ones that have free’bee such as free bids or game token. Just remember that you are willing to lose $60.00 from the get go.

    on the free bids (right corner of the items you are bidding on, if there is 20 free bids, you can afford to bid 20 times – but study whom you are challenging. some names are there at any hours of the day or night. I think that the site it rigged somehow…

    BBB stands for nothing in the web arena. So for credentials, look at users and feel their experiences.

    have fun and remember to count in your head the bid in pennies x $0.60. that is what quibids is making. so for an items going for $29.00, quibids made $1740.00 because those 2900 pennies. Of course you deduct the value of the item.

    I think someone once said that nothing is free.

    I registered for QuiBids this evening, however when I got to the second page of registration and they asked for credit card information I did not continue. Granted, it is not the most altruistic site, but I am finding it rather baffling how many people on this board were shocked when their credit cards were charged? I thought the website made it quite obvious that you would be charged $60.00, hence why I did not release my credit card information.

    Personally I will never put money into this website. But it seems like a sweet deal for the creators that got money out of all the people on this message board that were looking for a deal and didn’t stop to think.

    I would also like to point out that I am currently able to look at bids on the website, just not bid on them. If someone is curious about QuiBids and wants to look at the auctions, NOT putting in your credit card information IS an option. (close the window and reopen the site, it will bring you to the auctions page automatically) As a general rule, submitting your credit card information without understanding the terms is a pretty careless idea. Personally I didn’t see anything that caught my eye on the site, mostly vouchers and some useless other items.

    One concerning thing is that I cannot find any links on the site to delete my account, but I had no problem finding the customer service number despite what some posters have said.

    Hopefully that’s helpful.

    I just went to give the site another once over. Before you submit your credit card information it tells you your “total package cost = $60″ ( this is not in fine print). Also, under submit it says “By PURCHASING you are agreeing to the terms and conditions.” They really are not trying to hide the fact that they are charging you so please beware if that’s not what you want!

    Also! when I looked at the reviews on the bottom of the site It does not provide names for the quotes and it also never says that they are about Quibids. It reads “Penny auctions have been featured in articles on:” and provides the logos to popular news papers and magazines. There is nothing to say that any of them were talking about Quibids specifically (The Economist was not). Don’t let the high end newspaper logos trick you into believing that any of them recommend this site. For example, this is the article from the Wall Street Journal that is quoted on the bottom banner of the website. Give it a read, it is not a flattering article. In fact it discusses lawsuits filed against Quibids. It actually brings up many of the issues discussed on this board.

    Never ever try bidding online. This is addictive and as we all know nothing can be achieved with short cuts. This is a clear example for it. You will end up paying more than the actual value of the item. Never dare to lose money which is hard earned. I prefer buying things through ebates and getting cash back rather than trying this cheap website from which I have already learnt a lesson.


    ken a says:

    It is addictive, and I have seen people bid more than an item is worth. I highly recommend Quibids to someone with half a brain who is willing to watch and learn. Do their homework, and start small.

    Like many others… I do not believe they use bots or anything like that. Or even fake accounts to bid up items. I’ve watched to many auctions to believe they are doing anything illegal.

    I have managed to win 13 auctions in the first month for golf equipment equaling $2,500 retail for around $300 between bids @ $.60 cents a piece and the auction winning price.

    If you win anything for less than $.50 cents they give it to for free.
    They do free shipping on EVERYTHING.

    They will buy back your real bids (bids you paid for and didn’t win) anytime you want to leave the site.

    The shipping is reasonably timesly and I have recieved all of my stuff in new unused condition.

    Love Quibids… but don’t live on it, and think before you bid. It’s gambling no matter how you look at it… so, if you have an issue with gambling… stay away!

    I just recently stumbled onto quibids. I think its legit. just do some homework before diving in. You dont just start throwing money on the craps table if you dont know what youre doing. sure you can, but youll probably lose some money. Just like someone on here said, “its like playing a slot machine”. Yes, the house is ALLWAYS gonna win, but no one complains at the casino or when you buy raffle tickets. My advice is to never bid on more bids, and only bid on items your willing to use the “BUY NOW” after the auction has ended. If everyone did this, they would be out of business very quickly. I only bid on Homedepot and walmart gift cards. I spend so much money at these places its like paying in advance for money i’ll spent tomorrow. If i place 15 bids on a $10 gift card, thats $9 in bids I spent. If i dont win, I use the “buy it” and spend another dollar for it. So in total I spent $10 on a $10 gift card. I had a chance to win it for alot less. That dosnt sound like a scam to ME. No free lunch like someone else said. But if your gonna buy your lunch anyway.

    Just play smart. If you feel lucky, go for it, but the odds are not in your favor if you do.

    Simply because you might not get scammed does not mean it’s legit. If they claim that they use no bots or shills, yet still use bots and shills, then it’s not only legit, it’s illegal.

    To use the casino analogy: a roulette wheel has 38 slots and so the probability of the ball landing on any particular slot is 1/38. Due to the nature of the betting and payout options, the house (in the US) will usually have about an edge of about 5.25%. Although these odds (and the house edge) are not necessarily posted for the gambler, they are self-evident and may be assumed by anyone who decides to play the game. But if the casino decides to “rig” the game using something (like electromagnets, weights, etc.) to make it less likely or impossible for the ball to land in any particular slot, it would theoretically be liable for fraud or misrepresentation. As a practical matter, the course of action would be to notify the state agency responsible for regulating casinos (one of the reasons these agencies exist is to distinguish instances of “rigging” from the many allegations of disgruntled gamblers who simply lost to a generous “house edge.”

    Here, using bots would be rigging the wheel, not simply taking advantage of the house edge.

    Most importantly, the casino analogy fails simply because penny auctions are meant to function as markets, not casinos. If sites such as Quibids are suggesting that their model should be compared to that of the online betting industry, then perhaps they should be treated as an online casino, not a market. Then, of course, they would be shut down immediately.

    PLEASE Buyer Beware... says:

    February 1st, 2013 at 5:00 pm

    Thought it was legit…NOT. I went onto the “Live Auction” page, & decided to follow a ’50 voucher’ auction in a separate window (so I could see the individual bids). After following it for a while, I switched back to the “Live Auction” site (refreshed) & the auction that I was watching (still going)was nowhere on the site. I refreshed both screens, just in case, & the 50 voucher auction that I was watching was no longer on the “Live Auction” site. Why?

    I did not move from my PC, as I wondered if this was just a ‘glitch’. It wasn’t. The ‘missing’ auction was replaced by another ’50 voucher’ auction (that had not come up through the ‘ranks’) but all of a sudden was at 15 seconds & bidding was quick.

    I then opened a third window for this ‘new’ 50 voucher auction (again to see who was actually bidding). Many people can bid on multiple items at the same time, but what caught my eye was that “Mad2222man” was bidding on both, BUT one of them was NOT listed on the “Live Auction” list. (both site addresses are below – hope they still exist)

    STATS: 78 cents – mad2222man Ended This auction ended 2013-02-01 13:27 CST Value Price: $30.00 Bids Credit: – $0.00 0 Real/24 Voucher
    Auction Price: – $0.78 Winner Savings: $29.22 Saved 97%


    the ‘MISSING’, but still very much alive, ‘live auction’ (http://www.quibids.com/en/auction-129087340CA-5520-9204-50-voucher-bids) was continuing in a separate window, & Mad2222man was bid-o-maticing almost every other bid; with single bidders in between.
    It had left the ‘Live Auction’ site/screen at around $2.30 & closed at
    $5.62 on another screen. PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE STATS (do the math) & see who won!

    STATS: mad2222man Ended This auction ended 2013-02-01 13:28 CST
    Value Price: $30.00 Bids Credit: – $0.00 0 Real / 196 VOUCHER
    Auction Price: – $5.62 Winner Savings: $24.38 Saved 81%

    196 voucher bids is worth $117.60
    There were a total of 562 bids – Mad2222man’s (196) = 366 bids by other people @ 60 cents ea. = $219.60
    TOTALING A SALE OF $337.20!!!

    FOR 50 vouchers worth $30.00…..

    Please put this in perspective. This garnered Quibids a $300.00 profit on ONE auction)HOWEVER ask yourself:

    - why would a LIVE auction just disappear from the “Live Auction” site when the $ got to a point that most would say ‘this LITERALLY isn’t worth it’?

    - why would anyone use 196 voucher bids to buy 50 vouchers???

    - why have none of Mad2222man’s auctions shown up in the ‘statistics’ section (of the 50 Voucher bid screen), when other auctions that closed AFTER their’s ARE listed??? (NO they can’t use the excuse that they don’t publish ALL of them… they publish the 9 most recent; yes, I have been watching). AND on Feb. 1/13 @ 4:45 pm, Mad2222man has won a minimum of 6 voucher auctions, none of which are listed in the statistics area.

    The disappearing auction also happened a 3rd time with Mad2222man, again more than 70 vouchers were used to win only 50 back, with at least 400 more bids @ .60/each…

    IT’S RIGGED!!! Clearly Mad2222man should take his/her own advice, when, in their reply to ‘Gregorio, on Jan. 30/13′ Mad2222Men said: Jan.30/13 at 8:19 am

    “not fishy, you just dont understand the multiple product auctions.
    Do your homework before spending your bids”

    It’s sickening to know that Quibids is stealing from innocent, naïve people.

    This site should be shut down…. or someone should go viral on them. What I watched was blatant FRAUD.
    ps – one more: $7.27

    mad2222man Ended This auction ended 2013-02-01 15:13 CST Value Price:$150.00 Bids Credit:- $0.00 0 Real/198 Voucher Auction Price:- $7.27 Winner Savings:$142.73 Saved 95%
    REALLY – 727 BIDS @ .60 = $436.20 AND Mad2222man WINS AGAIN….

    Caveat Emptor!!!!!


    LawDog says:
    February 8th, 2013 at 11:46 am

    I am very interested in your account of Mad2222man’s auctions not showing up in the statistics screen. Here’s why:

    Imagine you’re Quibids and you do decide to use bots to compete on items. Obviously, this would benefit Quibids by driving up the number of bids for (and thus revenue from) and the price of (also revenue from) each item. And the bots could be instructed to buy the item unless the price and/or number of bids reached a particular threshold (which would not need to be set to make a profit on EVERY transaction in order to make a net profit). Thus, the bots could insure Quibids against the inevitable losses that would result from periods of low traffic on the site (lower traffic=fewer bids=lower prices=less revenue from bids and sales) by buying up items for which there has been too little competition. And if consumers began to notice that the behavior of certain buyers indicated the use of bots, Quibids could simply blame that extremely rapid or irrational behavior on buyers who used some third-party bidding software (of which there are, of course, many options to choose from). Surely you (Quibids) can’t be held responsible for those who try to game the system and fail!

    But Quibids would still need to pay sales tax on the transactions where it sold an item to itself. This would result in a net loss, unless Quibids kept no record of these transactions.

    So it seems to me that IF Quibids was using bots, the most convincing evidence of this behavior would be a pattern of not archiving those auctions that the supposed bots won. And IF you suspected them of using bots, then perhaps the most effective course of action would be to report them to the IRS for tax evasion, since proving fraud or misrepresentation is much more complicated and costly than simply letting a government agency with vast resources do the work for you.

    In short, follow the disappearing auctions—they are the most difficult to explain and the most likely to give rise to a legal cause of action.

    I won a remote control boat that costs $59.99. There were only 8 total bids made. That means Quibids got $3.20 for that boat. I made 3 bids costing me $1.80 and I also had to pay the 8 cents costing me a grand total of $1.88 for a 59.99 item. But because I got the bid for less than 50 cents they gave me the item free. So this boat cost me a horrible $1.80. What about s&h. There isn’t any.

    BUYER (OR BIDDER) BEWARE! QuiBids.com is a scam and needs to be reported to the BBB. I know their sites states that they are fully covered by the BBB, but now you have to make complaints to the BBB in person or letter so it’s annoying for most people.
    The QuiBids.com reviewer on here works for the company. First of all, be aware that nowhere on the website or TV advertisement does it inform you that Quibids.com is a Penny Auction. Look that up. It’s bad news. Educate yourself and put this company out of business.

    Remember, you can’t get something for nothing.

    After seeing a commercial on T.V. for Quibuds.com.I decided to look up on line to see what it was all about.I found this blog and others and read it. Glad I did. After what I did read about Quibids on here and others blogs I have come to this conclusion .Most reviews I have read are negative . I will stick with Ebay with friendly a customer service ( a trusted site of my choice ) rather than take my chances with site that is only interested in soul profit get rich quick scheme . I.M.A.O. In short it sounds like a site of highway robbery site to me.

    Hi…i too went to try out QUIBIDS. but thankfully didn’t place any bids till i know more about the web site…i was shocked to see that you had to pay the .60 everytime you bid on an item and they tell you this. Never ever had i ever had to pay money to place a bid nor would i ever. Plus if you don’t win the bid,you still have to pay how ever many times you bidded on the item that you were bidding on…NOPE!!! sorry..thats not happening. and as it turns out..everything this web site review hand to say was true. NO Bull…you should always check a web site auctions before spending any money..if its free to look at. otherwise don’t do it.

    Something fishy is going on for sure. I put in a Bid-o-Matic for 25 bids on one auction and lost it when it rejected my bid-o-matic. First they blamed my operating system and after some persistence by me, they blamed the interactions between my network and their network. Strangely, there were 24 bids left and the “Activate” button had changed colour and was in the “De-Activate” mode.

    I never asked for anything and I got a huge legal statement explaining why they could not give me my bids back!

    Then, I discovered I was bidding on many items simultaneously – if my bid was accepted for one item, I could accept other goods as well? If I was bidding on “Item A,” why is it offering me every other item in their thread (it is a teaser pic. over the bidding button). In other words, I was bidding on items I did not want and never realized it until I printed off the pages after the auction closed.

    This is fishy and the site lacks transparency.

    Remember – you may be bidding on an item and its price is affected by someone bidding on an entirely different item that is in the same thread as your item. This is very fishy.

    I very much enjoyed the auctions. I won 2 right away, & I saw a few auctions end at only 2 or 3 bids. The only thing I could find fault with is that my credit card was charged immediately without me having to confirm the charge. I was not expecting that to happen, but I have no problem with the auctions. Really it’s fun stuff.

    WhenI started the auction with the started pack, only 100 bids, I spent
    most of the bids trying to buy more bids to have enough bids to
    bid on something or bid for more bids. So in the long run I couldn’t
    adfford anything, buying bids took all my money. Yes, you can win bids,
    but it is hardly worth the effort for 5 bids. At least at z-biddy.com
    you can bid on bids for free.

    I have read many of the reviews here and stopped after a bit. People are saying the same thing over and over. Is it a scam? Well, let’s think about it. If someone is offering you something next to nothing then you have to question this. This will never happen, has never happened and surely will never happen. There’s no FREE lunch. People, it’s the internet and everything you read is true. How do I know this, I read it on the internet. To put things simple, there are KINGS and there are SLAVES, which one are you?

    It’s simple math, do your homework!!! Then decided!!!!

    I have to admit one hell of an idea, wish I’d thought of it!!! Is it a scam, I’d say no. It’s called capitalism, everyone love’s it! I’m sure many of you are looking to get items cheap to sell on Craigslist or eBay to make money (again, capitalism). So, you see it’s not wrong, they just do better!!!

    There you go, you hit the proverbial nail on the head. Capitalism at its finest. I only hope for their sake the stock doesn’t tank at their inevitable IPO, like Facebook. It may not be ethical or 100% honest but no gambling enterprise ever is. The odds always favor the house and the house almost always wins in the end. And so far they’re winning big. Not sure how current the data is, but, Worthofweb.com puts the value of the site at almost 20 million dollars with over 800,000 daily visits. 800,000???

    Like Nick (1/22/13) said, It’s just like gambling at a slot machine. You have the power to walk away or avoid it altogether. They just bank on nobody wanting to be the the one to dump $20 into the machine and walk away only to have the next guy hit the jackpot with his first coin. Hey, it’s fun and exciting to play. Take it at that. You can’t go into it thinking your going to get your Christmas shopping done for $22.99. Remember, they make it look glamorous. And if there’s a winner, there has to be at least one loser. They don’t mention the 40 other people who may have bid on the iPad and lost $12 or $15. I’m not a gambler at heart, so I think I’ll stick with eBay and local shopping. When I lose an eBay auction I may feel empty, but at least my wallet is still full.

    Quibidstips–Why are you so vigorously defending a site in which you claim to have no vested interest? Why would you constantly monitor this review board, which you obviously do judging by the frequency of your postings, if you weren’t personally vested in the sites success? Do you really think people are that naive? Or that stupid? It makes absolutely no sense for a person to advocate so persistently on something they weren’t personally involved with. You are either an employee, an owner or an investor. My money would go on an employee. With how shady this sites practices are, I’m sure they had to hire someone strictly for this purpose. To monitor review boards, pose as a satisfied customer and defend the site to increase traffic. Otherwise there wouldn’t be any positive reviews. I’ve seen it before, you just make it extremely obvious with your unrivaled consistency. Could of been a little more subtle man (or woman).

    Quibids is a huge scam.
    1) the prices they use to draw people in is incredibly misleading. since the bid only goes up by a penny but each bid costs $.25 cents to make its huge alteration.

    2) 3 times I have tried bidding on a product and with 3 seconds left the product Closes out with a random winner of some guy whos only bid 2 or 3 times. I am on autobid with 20 bids left so its not possible that it closes me out.

    3) you cant get any of the money back that you’ve paid in because they will never refund it.

    I am surprised they haavent been investigated by the federal govt yet.

    Shady business. Brilliant idea, hiding the overall cost progression behind pennies. Philosophy is you get 1 chip for 1 dollar, this equates to 1 penny in auction form but in reality it is still a buck cent sign.

    People stay bidding because they don’t want to lose what they already put into it. Same as gambling, just one more play and you could win it all. The other major loophole is who is driving these prices? Whats to stop the site from automatically placing penny bids themselves to keep driving the auction? And who is to say anyone even wins the auction in the end? No proof of recipient. Having both the goods, and the auction handled by the same company is a HUGE trust issue as there is no proof that all the auctions are even being sent to real bidders.

    Ontop of the amount of people bidding in increments its highly improbable that you will win. Same as the lottery. “someones gotta win, might as well be you” where you are 1 out of 40 people continuously funneling money into an auction with no strategy outside of persistence and stubbornness against the next bidder. Also with the ability for bidders to chime in there is no limit on the amount of people who bid total meaning 17 hours worth of bidding can be dismissed by 1 bid from a new comer.

    In the end the likelihood of you winning anything substantial is highly unlikely unless you are willing to pay up to 3 times as much the msrp of that product. Far too many variables to win, Variables are , number of total bidders, amount of bids purchased, item popularity, and time.

    I had an aunt who fell into this scheme whom already had a serious gambling addiction and only after $1432.00 spent on various auctions only to wind up with lost time she cut her losses. Great idea from a business perspective as you are guaranteed to nearly quadruple and then some the purchase price of products with a tempting offer to give the pot away to one lucky individual.

    Remember this is less a scam, and more a bait and switch. As far as whether they ship the items or winning bids are real are what are arguably scam worthy. So long as the opportunity to get something cheap is there people will keep supporting these sites. All you have to do is stay away and warn others.

    Wow I wish I had gotten the chance to help some of you before you wasted any money! I personally love Quibids and I feel bad for all the people that feel like they got cheated. I definitely see were a lot of people are coming from. The truth is Quibids is not a scam. It works the same as any penny auction and you should have done your research before jumping in. What I find sad is that almost everyone here giving bad reviews probably never did any research on what a penny auction was before jumping in. Penny auctions are a great way to shop but yes its not for everyone. People that lack personal control and patients will definitely lose. Look if your interested in Quibids you should check out www.QuibidsTips.com or QuibidsMaster.blogspot.com and pick up some free tips before starting quibids. I hope this helps

    The Facts:
    Quibids is not trying cheat you!

    Quibids is not gambling and if you treat Quibids like a gambling site you will lose.

    Quibids is a more realistic version of an auction the ebay is. It cost 60 cents per bid you place this is for monetary gains for Quibids and it also keeps people who have no intentions of winning the auction from raising up the price.

    They have delivered all items that I have won and they have honored all there buy it now options.

    There customer service isn’t the best but they have always answered my question with in a timely manner.

    I hope this helps
    Thank You

    I have joined quibids for almost 3 years now(over one year on their new website since they re-designed it) I had never had any experienced with penny auctions before that. I won my first auction in less than 30 mins after I joined them(25 bid vouchers)It was not that tough to win at all. Since then, I have won over 900+ auctions from them. I won a$350.00 tv with only 24 bids. I have won a few carmeras($100+ value), few $200 dollars gift cards(they discontinue the $200 dollars gift cards now)but mostly all my wins have been gift cards ranging from $15.00 – $50.00. Usually I don’t spend more than 25 bids on anyone auctions.

    Quibids is not a scam but if you are unfamiliar with what a penny auction is I insist you look it up or visit quibids 101 page were they clearly explain the process. Quibids is not like ebay they are completely different auction types.

    I say all this because of how shocked you are about the $66. This tells me that you had not done any research before going in and doing this review.

And yes I did try it, unfortunately like most of us. I usually stay well away from these too good to be true things, but thinking it was like another eBay. Far from it.
    The auctions don’t exist, the items they don’t have and there aren’t any people bidding on the items, all bots. They won’t give you a pc or camera or iPad for the price of the box it comes in!!! I tried a few auctions, after I realized it costs me 60 bucks ( fine print) and the clock just kept resetting when I bidded towards the end of the item and went back to 5 minutes.

    Stay well away and spend ya 60 bucks on a real auction!!!!

Of course its not like ebay they tell you right there on the site that it is nothing like ebay. You know someone spent hrs and hrs writing the quibids 101 page to help people understand how Quibids works and instead of reading it, I mean even in the sign up process they tell you over and over again to read quibids 101 before you start bidding. Of course it cost money to bid its a penny auctions!!!!!! Look up what a penny auction is before you review one!! bah I would like to say I feel better after that but I know I’m not done reading all the reviews and 3 out of 4 of them are people with there head….stop breath

    Look if your interested in quibids please take your time and learn how it works before you try it so you don’t end up writing a review about how much you hate it because it didn’t work the way you guessed it would. Quibids is not a scam!

I was in shock when bank of america called me and let me know. They are so awesome and glad they caught it in time and refunded me my money thank god. I than decided to call quibids and out of kindness let them know what happened and how their website is obviously shady. I got the meanest and rudest customer service I have ever talked to and I couldnt believe he talked to me the way he did….unbelievable! He was calling me a liar and just being down right mean. I am a bartender and always have cash, I only use my card online and havnt used it in months and than I join quibids and than it happened. I have never EVER wrote a review online but I feel I need to do this so no one else becomes a victim.

I would like some pricy items for my kitchen and saw the Quibids ad – when I saw them going for a couple of dollars, I was hooked. I went to the terms and conditions and saw the Bid Pack (with no mention of price) and wondered, how can I accept the terms and conditions when I don’t even know how much I will be paying. So I typed in Quibids review and here I am. I should have known it was too good to be true. Much like the ‘work at home’ – It’s all a scam.

Sure glad I read what has happenend to you guys, I was nowhere near ready to pay $60 upfront and just wanted to look around at what they had to offer. When you go to sign up with your credit card info. They make it seem like it’s just to have on file in case you want to bid on something. Yes…I should have read the t&c’s first but, they purposely have their site set up to look as though the t&c’s are just formalities.

But yes always review any item or service before purchase its nice to see someone using there head even if decide you don’t like quibids.

But to the kid who said “you an idot” I know exactly were your coming from. You signed up your did all the reading you educated yourself and you had a really great experience with Quibids and then you run into people who didn’t read didn’t educate them self’s and had a horrible time on Quibids so that start crying scam and you want to thump them on the head.

    First off, they charge you $60 for 100 bids when you sign up, with out giving you an option for a cheaper price and then the Items they have on auction aren’t even that good and the ones that are good, you are fighting for it against someone else. The conspiracy theorist in me is telling me that Its probably the company under different usernames bidding, causing you to bid more and therefore having to buy more bids. My advice, STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY, don’t let the BBB accreditation fool you, they say that they are accredited, but they don’t put their BBB grade and for me that is a big sign, if they are not willing to show their BBB grade on their website then I don’t trust them. Oh and don’t let the “items” for auction on the sign up page fool you, those are just their to get to you commit.

    QuiBids is a great penny auction site, unless you don’t know what you are doing. I just won Motorola radios w/ a 23 mile range, and a Leatherman knife. The chances are very low of you winning something big, like an iPad or computer, so a good piece of advice is to bid on SMALL LITTLE THINGS LIKE GIFT CARDS at first, then get bigger. trust me.

    Do NOT get involved with Penny Auctions. I was first lead by PUBLISHERS CLEARING HOUSE to ZBIDDY. I did NOT read the terms of use and was charged $99. Look up ZBIDDY for their SCAM report. All of these penny auctions are rip offs. If you happen to get win an item; try receiving it. IT NEVER ARRIVES. This is a form of gambling or it is gambling and in the END you will realize you’ve been SCAMMED in every unimaginable way.

    I have not used Quibids.com but was thinking about it. I have reviewed all of the terms and conditions, rules, how it works, etc on the quibids site but thought it would be better to get a second opinion. The majority of complaints i am seeing here are either common sense things you should know (such as Quibids is making a profit…well, duh!) or they are rules and condition that are actually pretty thoroughly explained on Quibids.com before you ever sign up (ie, my card was charged $60 before i ever placed a bid). I just don’t see how this is a scam. It is pretty straight forward to me if you take 10 minutes to read the terms and conditions and the “How It Works” portion of the website.

    If I could rate them a “0″ I would. I too fell for this SCAM about 1 year ago. I was charged the $60. I was under the impression it was set up more like ebay where you typed in what you wanted to bid. When I looked at their site for a customer service number, there wasn’t one. I had to do a little digging to find their phone number. I spoke with a supervisor and requested a refund. The guy I spoke with said he could not offer me a refund but would offer me more bids. I told him that wouldn’t really do me any good as I never wanted to use this scam of a site ever again. He said that was the only thing he could do. Well, he failed to mention that these bids had an expiration date attached to them!!!!! I am out of that money all together. Stay away from QuiBids. Stick with eBay! At least if there is an issue with eBay, they provide customer service and a phone number!!! Not sure why a LEGIT company wouldn’t have those things…makes you wonder.

    STAY as far away from Quibids as possible. It should be called QuiBets because it’s gambling not bidding. With eBay, you lose nothing if you lose. If you win you get something but bidding costs the loser nothing. With Quibids you lose every penny you pay for bids no matter whether you win or lose. Everyone who plays pays.

    Is it a scam? I would say yes because they mislead you. The list of recently won items isn’t reflective of what the actual last items went for. It may reflect the lowest prices anyone ever won these items for. Or the lowest prices won recently by a very few people. But the truth is that many 1000s of people lost money so that one person could win it at a low price. So only one person goes away happy and dozens or 100s or 1000s more go away upset and poorer losers.

    You can dispute the charges with your credit card company. But not for the money you pay for the bids. You can only dispute what what you pay if you lose and end up having to buy the item at full price. So in other words: If you pay, bid and lose, you paid for bids that you received. So you can’t say you didn’t get what you paid for. If you almost win and decided you have paid for too many bids not to go ahead and buy the item, all you can get money back for it the actual cash you ended up paying after the last bid you placed. Not good odds for anyone. SO if you pay $1000 in bids and you lose and you can just leave with nothing or pay another $500 and get the camera or TV, you can dispute the $500 and get that back but you still go way losing that $1000 in bids. And you don’t get the camera or TV. So you are in the exact same place you were when you lost, before you went ahead and paid the difference.

    Even the winners don’t get the good deals they show on the lists. Those are a small fraction of the winners. Not the average winners. Maybe 1 in 100 will get a good deal. 1000s pay too much for bids trying to get a good deal and the winner probably didn’t really get a good deal either. No telling how many auctions he lost trying to get that one good deal.

    It’s gambling folks. So just go buy what you want. Or bid on eBay. At least on eBay only the winner pays and you know that the bottom line is going to be. Plus eBay makes sure you only have to pay return postage. So, “you plays the game and pays the price” if you pay/gamble on Quibids.. Don’t do it. Be smart.

    Quibids is NOT a good auction site to participate in. While the ascetics of the site are quite good, the reality is it is structured to maximise profits quite relentlessly toward their shareholders. Facts are bidders are “let loose” on challenging each other to be the so called “WINNER” and receive the spoils. What a joke…I have viewed a winner being successful in a bid of say $40 for an ipad or ipod which extrapolates out to a purchase price of some $2400 for a retail cost of around $500…not really difficult to work out the profit margin!! In addition the products are not real flash considering the countries they are purchased from!! LETS FACE It…THERE ARE NO WINNERS HERE APART FROM THE QUIBIDS COMPANY MEMBERS!! For a site like this I would believe it very easy to actually command a reasonably good site of class and integrity, offering any subscribers a fair and equitable chance of success.BUT!! GREED AND PROFITEERING REARS ITS UGLY HEAD!!

    It’s not a scam by any means. It’s more along the lines of gambling. You can bid as many times as you like at .60 a bid but there is no guarantee you’ll win. Some of you should read up on things a bit more before you foolishly throw your money to a site expecting to get products for 95% off retail every bid. I use quibids and have been nothing but successful. And no I don’t work or am affiliated with them.

JUST BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE SUCKERED INTO SCAMS LIKE THIS OR THE LURE OF BIG MONEY IN GAMBLING, DOESN’T CLEANSE THE THE FACT THAT THE GAME IS “RIGGED” if the game has to be rigged its meant for you to “fail” and them to win, that’s a scam, GENIUS!

    Stay as far away as possible. You have no clue as to “who” your bidding against, a fellow bidder or someone from Quibids getting you to bid (spend) more. An item that retails for $100.00 and sold for only $20.00 might look like a great deal for the bidder and not for Quibids. But Quibids made (net profit) of $500.00 on that ONE auction (100 2cent bids at .60 cents each) Quibids slogan should be, “A fool and his money are soon parted.”

    Why not? Because you are bidding against 1000s and 1000s of people who will lose or pay full Suggest retain price for something while one guy wins and everyone else loses. Paying full price is foolishness since 1) You can get the same items on sale at New Egg, Amazon, or a dozen other place for discount prices. 2) You don’t have to wait the 2 to 3 weeks for your winnings to arrive. 3) Counting the items you drop out of early because you realize it isn’t a good deal, for every items you pay 95% retail, you will lose all the money paid for bids where you didn’t win. It is bad for everyone, including the winners. It’s gambling. QuiBids is the only real winner. Run the numbers. If they weren’t making money, they wouldn’t be doing it. One person wins, (maybe) and everyone else either loses or pays full suggested retail. Not a deal, discount or special offer. FULL Suggested RETAIL…

But when I was bidding on a gift card, some mysterious bidder exceeded the amount. I think they just have their own people increasing the price of the products so that they can make more money.

    It’s called Bidding Bots when you are bidding against a program designed to cost you the auctions. It’s a scam. And every state should be contacted (Attorney General’s office in your State) file a complaint and eventually, they will be shut down. Look at the lists of complaints on the dozens and dozens of websites set up just to warn people about this company. Their rating is 1 out of 5. So if everyone who comes here to complain, contacted their state, it would eventually put them out of business. BofA told me they have heard complaint about it and there is nothing they can do because you are paying for the bids and you are getting bids.

    I have bought and sold on eBay for 14 years. I have had very few problems or complaints. With a little care, I have almost always been satisfied with the items I have won and the prices I paid. In the few cases where I have been unhappy with a product, eBay has been a great place to protect the buyer. As a seller, I have worked very hard to do well and keep happy customers. I have managed to keep a consistent perfect 100$ feedback rating with all 5s as a power seller and top seller. There are things as a seller that I totally disagree with. But I can’t say that I feel I have no control over my success. I can not say that about Quibids. For a grueling 18 hours we bid on a camera among 18 other items we could have chosen. We ended up losing at the last minute because of a slight computer delay and had no choice but to pay full price or lose $500 in bids. So we paid $1499.99 for a camera with no case, or anything else when I could have won one on eBay for $1199.99 that included a bonus pack and a nice eBay Bucks bonus. My time is worth more than that and I am totally unhappy with the outcome. I will not get involved again. I don’t like anything about the Quibids platform

    As a former seller on a ebay I can tell you they’re one of the biggest monopoly’s around. I tried selling on ebay and received fees, well I log in one day and noticed I had forgotten about this $40.00 in fees so I paid it right away. They told me my account would be released from suspension if I paid the fees and you know what? I’m permanently suspended now meaning the only way I sell stuff on the internet conveniently and at a good price is by having a friend use their account or making my own “fake” one. Because anywhere else will not get you nearly as much views, simply because ebay is number one in advertising and was one of the first around.

I later saw a commercial on Quibids and thought it could have a small chance of being legit, but of course I had to do some research on it before I jumped into anything. I checked out their website and an IPhone 5 was up for $1.50! How does an IPhone 5 go from $800 to a mere $1.50? Simple, it doesn’t. I read more on its website in Google Apps. Review after review was 5 stars, and I nearly signed up, until my friend told me to get a second opinion. I wonder how much Quibids is paying for people to lie? Ha.

    Quibids is a rip off and a cheat!!! I have proof. I used my camera to take pictures of the screens and the policy is that once a user reaches limit, they are disqualified from the auction. This did not happen in my case – twice now. I got beat by a user who bid 230 bids, which totaled $138 for a $50 card. They cheat and steal from the users!!!!

    From reading how this site works:
    $0.60 for each bid
    each bid raise the price of the item $0.01

    If item sale for $2.00
    200 cents 200(the number of bids) * .60(price for a bid) = $120.00 Quibid makes on item + the $2.00

    Just watch an auctions…Item 24in panasonic TV sold for $15.32
    1,532 cents 1532(the number of bids) * .60(price for a bid) = $919.20 Quibid makes on item + the $15.32

    with this math I find this a very profitable business and do not see how Quibid losses any money…
    One thing I do not understand yet is the timer are reset to 15sec everything someone make a bid, I see bids can go on forever…??? the timer only stops if noone submits a bid. If the cost of the item reaches some dollar value you stop the bidding?

    If this is the case let say a Item has a retail value of $250.00
    quibids lets the price of the bids reach $250.00
    25,000 cents 25,000(the number of bids) * .60(price for a bid) = $15,000.00 Quibid makes on item + the $250.00 A 14,000+ profit I need to get into this business….

    DO NOT GIVE YOUR MONEY TO QUIBIDS! You will lose your money and walk away with nothing. Especially don’t bid on voucher bids or use their voucher bids. These have to be the same guys that came up with the time-share property “scam” where they legally sell the same piece of property 52 times to 52 different people. Also, when they run an auction you are bidding against people bidding on different items within the same price range. So if you are bidding on a piece of furniture, you are bidding against people bidding on a television of equal price. Go watch a few auctions and see. The odds of you walking away being in the black are about the same odds in a Vegas casino. So few walk away with money in their pocket. You’ve been warned. :)

    The premise of Quibids was never my complaint. I knew that this was akin to gambling and that Quibids was the winner in nearly all situations. I wanted a certain item and spent far too much time bidding and watching the time counter re-set time after time and my account deplete by the minute. Smart marketing and a money maker for the owners of Quibids. My COMPLAINT is the non security in this website. Somewhere/someone in Quibids corrupted my hard drive and completly destroyed my computer. I lost much information and documents and had to do a factory restart for my computer to the tune of $150. Days later, I was notified that the checking account I used to open my account with Quibids was hacked and being used fraudulently several states away. (the account is a very small account and rarely used, so it was easy to trace it back to Quibids) DO NOT USE THIS WEBSITE!!!!! You pay your money and you take your chances. This was a costly mistake on my part, so pay heed. Stick to eBay and Amazon and don’t get all caught up in trying to get a bigger bargain. It’s not.

    Notice the part that says cannot return real bids! In other words if I spent $300 bidding on an item, They keep it! And… they keep the product!

    My friends. Do not participate in any auction with Quibids. You will lose far more money than you will get from winning. Is it a scam? No. Can you win? Yes. The issue are the odds of you winning and the price you have to pay to get the item. Liken it to Dave and Busters or Chuck E Cheese where you play the game and get the tickets to get an item. After it’s all done you’ll end up spending far more than if you just made of list of the items you want and went and bought them on amazon.com. Buy from a legitimate retailer or if you want to participate in an auction go to ebay, but don’t spend your money there. Ebay will not punish you for bidding, but Quibids will take every last cent you have. You will regret it. I promise.

    I think that you people are being a bit unfair. The rules are CLEARLY spelled out for everyone at the time of account opening, (and if not in right in your face, with any due diligence you can find and read the Quibids.com 101…where they actually give a few hints.) Yes, it is gambling. I suppose the word auction can be a bit misleading…but “buyer beware”. I have won three things from Quibids, all of which I paid well below retail value for. I won an RC helicopter for $0.01… translated into real money that equals $0.61 plus about 6 bucks shipping… so those who were saying all of the penny winners are bots… i am not a bot. :) You just need to read over everything very carefully, be able to bail on a product if you’re obviously not going to win it without spending an arm and a leg, and recognize that yes, you are taking a chance to win this item cheaply. If you can do those things, (oh, and read at a 4th grade level…the description of how it works is really pretty simple…) then you’ll be fine. Happy bidding (or complaining…lol sore losers i suppose!)

    Quibids is not a scam, but they are rats. The difficulty with their auctions has nothing to do with fraud but that they link multiple auctions together. So, for example, they will take 20 items of comparable price and link them together so at the end of the auction you have your choice. The problem is that while you are bidding on an Apple Macbook Air, someone else is bidding on a 55″ HDTV of the same price. So you have a pool of bidders all bidding on different items from the same pool. So you are not just bidding against people who want the Apple Macbook Air, you are also bidding against the guy who wants the 55″ HDTV and the guy who wants the Sony Camera Bundle.

    I was thinking about signing up for Quibids so I started watching their auctions. I noticed that as I refreshed the page, the prices went up and down. If it is a true auction, there shouldn’t be any way a price can drop (8.53 to .64). That tells me that I need to shop else where.

    Thank you, I was just on the site checking it out, for the past few weeks i’ve been winning consistently based on a few controlled factors I figured out. I was doing all of this from my ipad, so when i would change my screen to another auction of the same line of products, I saw that all the bidders were the same and so was the price. I figured my ipad hadn’t loaded the page correctly, but I checked just now and ofcourse I realized I’m not just bidding against a bunch of other people, I am bidding against maybe 5/6 different auctions all at once, how are you supposed to win with those odds? ontop of that quibids is making more than enough, not everyone goes through the buy now option, and many times the auctions go way over the top. Say a $25 gift card is up for grabs and the price went upto $5.00, thats $275 Quibids made in profits. Lets say 50 percent of those people were using voucher bids, that’s still $87.5 profit for Quibids, now lets factor in maybe 1/2 out of the 9 people that were bidding actually went through the buy now option, Quibids still makes $37, which is basically 150% profit!

    This Hoax of a company is not only confusing (purposefully) and a sham (as explained above) but their representation in Customer Service is abysmal.

    I thought I was just signing up as an account to review what they had to sell until it got to the Credit Card information…this made me nervous as I hadn’t even bought anything as yet. I reluctantly gave my information only to have it bounce back for some reason (lucky me)!

    However after checking my Quibids account, it showed that I had $60 in it even though I wanted no such thing. They refused to help, so I called my bank who helped sort it out and get the account back to where it should be, with NO help from Quidbids Customer Service.

    I thin went back to Quidbids to CANCEL my account and the rep did so, but was abrupt and left before I could even have them send me a copy of the discussion.

    I am not a legal/financial expert, but the way I understand it you have 90 days in which your bank can return any money charged to your account through electronic transfer if you did not authorize such transaction. So if they charge you anything call your bank and tell them it was not authorized and the Q-bid will be throwing a fit, while you now have your $’s back.

    Quibids might sound nice but unless you are very smart you could end up spending a lot more than what the item is worth. Each bid raises the auction price by 1 cent. each bid costs 60 cents. So an item won for the price of $19.20 is 1920 multiplied by 60 cents. $1152. The company makes their money, and only one bidder is happy. Not to mention that I believe they have bidding bots, or employees bidding on the items to raise the prices so that when the price has reached over the cost of the items then you are allowed to win it.


    ronald says:
    December 3rd, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    I also learned fairly quickly how they do things. My initial $60 investment turned into a total of $100. Because when you win an auction you also have to pay to ship it. I was able to win about $100 worth of items and gift cards for my total cost of $100, so fortunately for me I broke even. The only thing good about Quibids is that the items are real and you will get them if you win.

    Thought I would look at some reviews before I tried the site. A lot of these posts have been very helpful but it seems there are a lot of 1 star reviews from people who admitted they didn’t read the terms and conditions.

    My take is that if you are going to use this site be prepared to pay full retail and not expect any deals only the possibility. It seems that if you really do want a good deal you have to invest considerable time into how the auctions work and/ or plan on spending several hours monitoring the auction and carefully placing bids. False advertising or not it seems quibids ropes a lot of people into registering and not providing much detail about what the average person ends up paying if they win and if they lose for the specific products.
    From an economic prospective it seems there is a high opportunity cost at least for me individually. The hours I would have to invest to be successful or at least have the chance seems too high. Those are hours I could have spent making money or at the very least not losing money. So I would probably suggest that if you are not willing or can’t afford to pay at least 80% of the products list price in the auction you might be better off just waiting to buy it when you can.

    Again I have not used the site yet but came here to learn more. Is what I said a fair take ?


    dave says:
    December 4th, 2012 at 4:02 pm

    actually a ‘fairer take’ would highlight the information that most products DO NOT HAVE ANY MANUFACTURER WARRANTY! a 30 day ‘warranty’ from Quibids with no return of fees spent to bid is a COMPLETE SCAM. To paraphrase Shakespeare, ‘a turd by any other name…’

Do not buy these trash products, it is scam. (period) if you bid for lets say an undervalued ipad for 60 dollars and you win it.

    I can’t believe how much of a scam this is. Whoever is running this, is so smart tbat he or she is getting away with it. I did try the bids and knew right away it could never be a fair thing. You have a time clock that restarts every time someone puts a coin in. And you have to keep buying coins after coins after coins etc. In order to keep bidding. So instead of really getting the item for $10, you’re spending well over hundreds of dollars. Oh and if you don’t win, get this YOU LOSE ALL YOUR MONEY!!!!!! You don’t get any of that cash back. I cant believe how the BBB isnt shutting this down. How they get you is they get you to win a lunch card or money card. Then you’re hooked! Its a coputer of some sort that bids against you and everyone else in the website. To keep you buying bids. Thats how they make there money. Don’t get hooked on the scam.

    Its not a scam just because you don't win. It does however have terms and conditions that you will NOT like and you need to read them before you spend any money.
    You can only win certain # auctions in 24hours, you can only win 1 of certain type of item within 28 days…

    You can buy an item you bid on if you lose the auction BUT voucher bids are not deducted from the price, only purchased bids are.

    The WORST is that they predetermine which items you will actually see and can bid on based on your "skill level" at their discretion. Below is an actual response I got after noticing I can see items on some views and not others and rule IS listed in the terms and conditions:

    Thank you for contacting support. All users on QuiBids are offered the same items to bid on, however auctions for the same items are offered at varying times for each individual bidder. The main reason for this is due to the high quantity of auctions and users that participate daily on QuiBids. By limiting these auctions, our main goal is to increase the chances of users winning items. QuiBids attempts to limit some auctions to participants of comparable skill, as determined by QuiBids, to enhance user experience and maintain a viable business model. In so doing, QuiBids may limit which auctions are available to particular users based on any factors deemed appropriate by QuiBids in its sole discretion, including experience of the user, historical success of the user, demographic factors, prior bidding and spending activity, and other factors. In particular, QuiBids may limit certain auctions to less experienced or successful users in any manner QuiBids deems appropriate to optimize the overall user experience of all QuiBids users. You acknowledge that You may be, and You consent to being, excluded from auctions at QuiBids discretion. Hopefully this helps provide some clarification on this topic.

    It’s not a scam, but very few people are getting a good deal. They
    are making a killing, with their format. Say 500 people bid on a computer, it doesn’t matter what it ends up selling for. That’s if you only bid once, think about all the multiple bids. You shouldn’t have to pay so much up front either. I wouldn’t take part in their “auctions” again.

    Can’t believe how negative these posts all are. Quibits is a great business idea. Yes they make a ton of money off people who spend their $60.00 (100 bids) on products they never buy. When a product sells for $2.00, quibids makes $120.00+$2.00, but if you bid on a product you intend to buy anyways you can get a great deal. I waisted about $20.00 of my $60.00 bidding on big products that I lost and never purchased. But once I decided to get smart I committed to spend all my remaining bids towards an apple tv. I won it for $2.59, after placing $30 in bids. Total price for me $32.59+ shipping. Total $$ for quibids $157.99. Worst case senario here would have been loosing the bid and paying $40.00 for the apple tv + my bids. That’s really not a whole lot of risk for a nice reward if you’re smart about it.

    I tried quidbid and was excited starting off on a bid for a tablet but before the item was won off to someone else I didnt noticed that I was paying for each time I bidded, in turns costed me 60 dollars and 100 bids for an item I didnt have a chance at winning. Quidbid is a ripoff and i would advise everyone not to waste their hard earned money on the site, You may think you just won an item for 2.00 but in turns you may have paid two hundred dollars in uncalucated bids, Do the math.

    One person was pushing up the bids non stop and the same person was also bidding on several other items.

    24 h later the same person is on automatic bids on several items. I can only guess they are employed to push up the bids.

    Why the low rating? Here is why, putting all kidding aside, Quibids has managed to fool everyone in to believing they have a good deal going. Let me give you an example.

    I recently spent 6 hours monitoring and bidding on a Dyson Vacuum cleaner valued at 599 dollars. I only put a random bid in every once in a while but still ended up spending 70 dollars on bids to the item that sold for just under 65 dollars. The amazing thing I noticed was one bidder in particular who was bidding with the “BidOmatic” feature who must have put in at least 2000 bids that way. Not only translates that to 1200 dollars it was also amazing that this individual was bidding with BidOmatic all the time. According to the rules you can only apply 25 bids that way and than you need to reset your BidOmatic to get 25 more bids set up.

    Now they also have a feature that is supposed to let you know when you reached the value of the auctioned item in cash value to ensure that you will not end up spending more money than the item is worth.
    For example, if you bid on a 60 dollar item and you have placed 50 (30 dollars worth) bids when the item is at 30 dollars it will tell you you have reached the value and can no longer place bids but can purchase the item outright at whatever remaining cost for shipping and such, this is a nice feature but it proves to me that they know that their advertising is misleading because they don’t tell you that it even gets anywhere close to a situation like that. In fact they make you believe you can save big time. Also they give you the impression that you can get big ticket items on a regular basis and some even as big as cars or other items in the thousands of dollars that can be won for just a fraction.

    Don’t fall for this being an auction or some kind of retail service. IT IS A GAMBLING SITE.

    I caught myself on this site doing what I have never ever allowed myself to do ever in life and that is spending lots of money on a chance to win something. I have spend several hundreds of dollars on this site and ended up with not even 50 percent in products to vouch for my spendings. Yes I got several gift cards totaling about 125 dollars and I got an iPad but I spend over 2500 dollars on this site. Never mind the hours I spend in front of my computer. I know, it is my own fault to let it get that far and I am no longer doing that, however it is a sad thing to come to realize that i ruined my good reputation of never gambling to the point of becoming addicted to it and now I am dealing with the aftermath.

    Quibids should be forced to tell people that they are a gambling site and they are in the business of borderline scam false advertising. That is right, FALSE ADVERTISING, if you see their advertising on TV you have no reason to believe that what they show you there is maybe 10 percent of what they really offer for bidding and they do not tell you that you have only a few items at a time available to bid on. Everything available is set with a timer and every couple of minutes they become available to bid on. Sometimes there are 10 items (mostly cheap items) and other times there is only 1 or 2. Items over 500 dollars I see maybe once every 300 to 500 items that come by and than there is a mad rush on them driving the price up high and using up many bids. Remember, even if the free voucher bids cover 2/3 of all the bids placed on items they still make double what the item is retailing for in the store.

    As the previous example of the vacuum cleaner, it sold for about 65,00 dollars which is 6500 times 1 bid translating to 1/3 times $0.60 and 2/3 voucher bids.( the voucher bids are won by placing bids too so they have a money value, they are not entirely free) that means that the item brought in at least 1365 dollars, 1300 for the bids and 65 for the sale price. Now we all know that it is unlikely that there are that many voucher bids used on that item but it is a good ballpark figure. Also, in the item history it shows ridiculous low prices it recently sold for, I never in all the months I was on the sit have seen any item sell for as cheap as they show in their history other than maybe vouchers that might get won from time to time for nice low prices.

    A couple examples, I have watched and bid on 13 Nikon cameras and they claim they have sold for as low as 3 dollars up to about 65 dollars, when ever I was monitoring the cameras and was bidding on them they all went for prices of 80 dollars and up, that never shows in “recently sold for”. iPads, as low as 2 dollars, I bid on 9 of them and the lowest sold for 67 dollars, I won mine for 134 dollars. Dyson Vacuums, as low as 3 dollars up to 30 dollars, I bid on 5 of them and they all went for more than 50 dollars.

    I have had enough of them, they made a few thousand dollars of me and I hope they do something nice with it, I will no longer give them any of my money any more.

    I wasn’t on the auction DLM was talking about but I do know the process of multiple items being bid on the same auction is called “you choose it”. I’ve made my complaints regarding this because as I was watching the auction I realized some of the bidders were shown to be bidding on other items in the the same auction. Supposedly the winner of the auction can choose any of the items listed. My issue was that the winner of my auction wasn’t bidding on what I was bidding on, but my item still showed SOLD. That is an untrue statement and is fraud. The fact that they do not disclose that there are multiple items in an auction is deliberate deceit. There is nothing on the website explaining the process. The only way you find out about it is after a complaint to support, you are directed to a blog link that talks about it but doesn’t really explain what happens. QuiBids depends on novices who don’t fully understand what is happening. To me, this is lack of respect for their customers,and any apologizing on their behalf is patronizing and guess what?…they’re laughing at us fools all the way to the bank.

    I saw you on that auction — but did you know you were also simultaneously bidding on a Roomba 560, a Roomba 650, and a KitchenAid 5Qt Artisan Stand mixer?

    That’s right — I’ve found the exact same people putting in the exact same bids in the exact same order on multiple simultaneous auctions. It’s easy to check for this — just look at the list of similarly-priced products at the top of the page.

    For example, on Thursday evening I watched an auction in which the product I wanted — a Roomba 650 — end up selling for over $104. Or did it? There were simultaneous auctions on a Dyson vacuum, a Kitchen Aid and a New iPad. Same people, same bids on every item. But I have a feeling the winner took the iPad.

    One could argue — and I suppose QuiBids would — that this is a “feature” — basically running a single auction from which the winner gets to pick their prize. But it has the effect of driving up apparent demand for each product, so the winner ends up paying more than s/he would have in an auction solely devoted to the product s/he is interested in.

    I have used Quibids in 2010 and then left because I was waisting money a lot. Recently I have used it again in last few weeks since I got few free badges. Everybody please trust my analysis as I have noticed now that their own staff is playing the auctions. Just click on the main category such as Houseware/HomeWare/Electronics and notice the bidders on any auction. Now click on the top bat where other relative items auction are also running at the same time. You will be surprised that they all have the exact same bidders and even the auction price. How on earth it is possible that 10 same bidders are bissing on the different items at the exact same time and at the exact same price. I am sure all their auctions are controlled and honest bidders are bound to lose. I thank Quibids for finally doing such an aweful thing that I am off this site now otherwise I would have stayed and lost money anyway in the long run. When I played this site in 2010 then most of the bidders were real and this is something they have started in near term. DONOT use this site it is really fraud.

    all of you that are hating on this website are idiots. I put in the 60 bucks for bids, spent about 10 total on items and walked away with over $200 worth of merchandise. So what if they make a boat load off of the final product, still saved me a ton of money. Frankly i do not care if 50 people all bet there lives away on a t.v that I won for 60 bucks. Its basically a form of gambling. Just cant be stupid about it. If you spend more than these products are worth, that is your fault, not the sites. In my opinion, they deserve to be rich its a great idea. I cant say i wouldnt do the same thing if i were them

    Do the math peeps. 60$ up front charge,you have already lost before taking a single bid.

    Then look at the products,how much of a selection really is there???

    Answer: Almost None

    That alone tells me this is a Scam. Overstocked items or refurb items being sold,or companies looking for a bit of advertisement.

    Look for a Solid State Hard Drive, sorry,doesn’t exist.

    Look for Lego Death Star, sorry doesn’t exist.

    Look for a Toshiba 50″ 1080p Lcd Tv. Sorry,doesn’t exist.

    You are force fed extremely limited items. Sure someone may win,but only after Quibids has made their money and then some.

    Me? I’d rather bid on ebay and know that even if I am sniped at the end I didn’t lose 1 red cent bidding. With ebay I can always do my homework and find another auction and actually have a real chance at winning based on the amount I want to spend.I won a auction for a Honda GCV 160 Carburetor, 21.50 final price. Can’t find that on Quibids and that carb was brand new,saved me all kinds of time and money replacing my bad one. That’s why I ebay,when I win I don’t ever lose.

    I agree with you that it used to be like gambling, but like I said in my review above your review that their own staff is now playing the auctions. Just click on say all similar value $29/$39/$49/$99 items and see for yourself. I noticed it for more than a week that if I click on say multiple items worth the same then all the bidders on right side are same. This site used to be like gambling but just got worse now because you are playing against their staff/users and odds of your winning are not the same which is actually still better for gambling so actually it is worse than gambling. Congrats on winning though if you have really won as a genuine user.

    Great review. I have been on ebay for many years and thought I’d try quibids. Wish I’d ready this review first. After just 48 hours it is clear that it is a complete scam. Although you may win an auction for just $1… the cost of your bidding may have been $20. Sure, they offer you a ‘buy it now’ with the cost of your bidding subtracted. But with shipping etc. you have realized no major savings… and have just been scammed into wasting a ton of time challenginging a bunch of people with hours to spend clicking the mouse button on the computer. The only thing people really get is some sense of return on what can only be described as the frantic click of a button on a gambling machine. Go to regular discount sites and save yourself money and time.

    So here’s my story. I needed a queen mattress pillowtop pad and a ps3 game Resident evil 6. They cost $60 for game and $80 for mattress pad on Quibids. I risked $60 dollars to signup since I researched you can pay the difference when you lose a bid. Regardless of using the site I was going to buy both for $140! Well i bid and won the Game for $1.98 plus $2 dollar shipping and won the mattress pad for $0.29 cents with $12.99 shipping. I have 80 bids @ .60 cents each = $48 dollars remaining. After all the math I saved $122 dollars from a $140 value on both! Stay away from people who use autobids since they will run you out, wait until an auction has been going on for awhile and look at the recent final price it was sold for so you can have an idea when to jump in and bid. BID ONE ITEM AT A TIME! AND DONT GIVE UP!

    All it is is several people chipping in and paying quibids more than an item is worth and only one person ends up with it. There are times you might come across a deal you got but the fact of the matter is the item was way over paid by several different users chipping in so even though YOU got a good deal (thanks to your fellow bidders for helping you pay for it) quibids still makes out like a bandit.

    A friend of mine brought this site to my attention so i gave it a try. I won two items and ended up paying the full price on another two items which I was betting on, but lost to someone else.

    My issue with this site is that I don’t believe all the bidders are real people, I have seen instances of the same users bidding on 4 or 5 items at the same time, not missing a beat. This obviously drives up the cost of the item and every time someone places a bid, it’s 60 cents lost if they don’t win the item. They also have bids on vouchers which can give you free bids, but you can’t use them to buy items that you lost your bids on.

    The other thing I have noticed, it’s almost the exact same users which win most of the times, and pretty much bid on every single item from the moment the auctions go up in the morning till the last auctions after midnight. same people bidding constantly without taking a break, on multiple items at the same time. This sounds fishy to me. I have decided to stay away from this site, at least till they limit the number of auctions a userid can win per day to less than 5. Or completely eliminate the voucher bids that they have.

    Quibids used to be a very good site if you put a lot of time and patience into it. I have won many items for a fraction of their cost. I have given all my kids tons of stuff and also my friends. But recently they have changed their website and the way you bid. Anymore the site has become a rich man’s paradise that have nothing to do all day. When you used to bid on an item it was that item only. They now changed this so you may be bidding against 20 different people on 20 different items. And at any time someone else could just jump in and not be bidding on the same item as you. CRAZY HUH!!! I only limit myself now to the hours that are less crowded. I have been a member for over a year now and know all the rich ones to stay away from. If you are new, you are in for a treat!! These big shots will blow you away before you know it. Start out small on gift cards if you cannot stay away as you cannot lose as much on them. I only hope they wise up and go back to the way they were. (JMHO)

    Take a look at one entire bid before you participate on Quibids. One person spent a total of 4 grand on a apple macbook which you can buy for 1200 dollars. That tells me there are bots in these bidding rooms just bidding to keep you bidding. They probably hire people in their company to keep bidding on auctions and they are given unlimited bids.

    Quibids is a LEGIT SCAM!!~

    Decided to make my first bid at the last second. – There were 14 others! Only lost 60cents but pulled out quicker than a hurry before I lose more.

    Pros: You can win stuff cheap if they’re no other bidders.
    Live chat QUICKLY refunds unspent money with no shady buisness.

    Upon registration, it empties out your WHOLE PAYMENT ACCOUNT and turns it into bid credits(bids). What they SHOULD do is take money out your account AFTER you make that bid by the respective amount of bids you make.
    1 bid = 60 cents. They’d get better rep putting that out in the front from the jump.
    Make a bid – it extends the time..

    Quibids is different, but is a good site. I’ve only been on it for about a week, won 1 auction, but watched many play out. I’ve seen $400 TVs go for like $30 and the winner only made less than 20 bids, so the final price was still really cheap. Quibids isn’t for everyone though. Only bid on items you’re willing to bid all the way to retail for, then you don’t lose your bids with the Buy It Now option. But if you do win, you’ll save a lot. Quibids does require a lot of time studying how auctions play out too. Rookies will always lose if they just dive right in. Plus, auctions only end when bidding stops and the timer resets to 10-20 seconds with each bid when the auction gets down to that time. So if you don’t have the time to outbid people for hours for higher dollar items, it isn’t for you either. But, if you have the time to study how it works, and the time to dedicate to outbidding others, it’s a really good and fun site to use.

    That $30 price cost $1800 in bids

    Example: 1 bid = 60 cents
    $30 = 3000 cents (100 cents/$*30)
    3000 bids (one cent/bid) * 60 cents/bid = 180,000 (cost of 3000 bids)

    It took 3000 bids to sell the TV. Those 3000 bids cost $1800 by a number of people. So the $400 actually sold for $1800.
    Nice profits these assholes are making?

    I went to this website after seeing their commercial on TV. The lady gave a code for free bids to get started. I went the site and registered. I was surprised to find out they wanted me to spend $60 for 100 bids. In addition, when I put in the code given in the ad on TV, I got a message stating that the code was invalid. So I was unable to get the free bids and didn’t pay for any bids. This site is a sham because they state one price to you giving you the impression that you can get things for penny’s on the dollar, “A laptop for $23.60 or a TV for $34.90. They do not tell you the actual price the person paid for the item. I was shocked to find out the bids would cost me $0.60. This is false advertising and the FCC needs to have them change the ad and give them a healthy fine. Please save yourself some money and the headache of losing it to these people.

    Do this: watch the auctions. It all looks pretty good while you watch, the minute you start bidding on an item all hell will break lose and while the same item at parallel auctions will sell for pennies, the one you started bidding on will go on forever and you will end up paying close to retail after 4 hours of bidding.
    This site might work for people with too much time on their hands, the retired, the unemployed, government employees etc.

    Quibids is definitely a scam, albeit a semi-legitimate one. I just signed up and NOWHERE was there any upfront statement that I was about to be charged $60. I cancelled less than 30 minutes later, demanded a full refund, and was told that I’d be charged for my used ‘bids’. I will be filing a claim for every cent they take, and a complaint with the BBB and AG’s office, and recomend anybody scammed does the same. These companies usually do the right thing as soon as they’re forced to.

    THINK ABOUT IT PEOPLE ! For every winner of an auction item with multiple bidders there will be a certain number of losers. If you bid first on an item and then there’s another bid, then another… DO NOT BID ANYMORE ! If there are 12 different bidders on an item there will be 11 people that lose money ! Yep, sounds like a form of illegal gambling to me. If Quibids is doing nothing wrong then why don’t they disclose in large font on the TV screen that they will be charged $60 automatically to start and it is non-refundable and every 1 cent bid placed costs 60 cents of your money plus the cost of the item if you win plus shipping and handling and any applicable taxes. Or better yet they should also speak the words as the commercial is going.
    Yes, you can get a good deal on mainly gift cards now. The big ticket items are too risky and you run the chance of paying out a lot to not actually win the item. I will never be going back on Quibids. I think that those of us who benefitted from some good deals have seen the end of those days. Get out while the getting is good.

    I have used Quibids off and on for about the last year and I have made a little money off this, nothing crazy but I usually make about $1.60 for every dollar I spend.

    First off, you have to do your homework with any penny auction site. I watched for about a month or two before buying the starting pack of 100 bids for $60. They explain everything to expect on their Quibids101 and give you some tricks if you are a first timer. Quibids is very upfront about their site and have always been very helpful to me whenever Ive had problems. Big tip I can give is dont start off going for tv’s and ipads because those are very hard to win because there are usually 40 bidders or so on those auctions. Start with gift cards. Much easier to win because usually only a half dozen people bidding at the most. Also be commited to an auction, dont jump around with a few bids here and there because you can take your bids and use the buy it now feature to pay for an item if you dont win. It really helps minimize losses. Quibids is also very good about shipping, I have won gift cards early friday morning and have had them in the monday mail. The longest Ive had to wait was a week one time.

    Now there are some cons to Quibids like the cost to ship a gift card is $2.00 (it is much better than other sites but it still is high)

    As you win more or less auctions you are secretley thrown into different levels where there is much more and stronger competition than when you first start. (I know this because me and my friend pulled up our accounts at the same time and got completley different lists)

    Recentley they have switched to a different format with their higher dollar items where it is a bascially you choose the item to bid on. ($300.00 camera and a $300.00 tv are the same auction and it looks to have made it harder to win those higher items.

    To all of the people who say that it took my money well what did you expect when you entered your credit card information and clicked “Im ready to start winning”. Everything is clearly stated on that page that you are purchasing 100 bids for $60.

    The problem is people dont know how to read or care to read the fine print anymore. They just jump in and then whine when they loose their money. If you take the time to read everything and watch it for awhile you can make a couple bucks off this.

    I use the site and get stuff at great prices. How is this a scam? With any common sense and some basic math it is extremly easy to figure verything out. If the bidding is at 2 cents for a $50 gift card, why bid? Somebody will come in after you…I’m not sure that everyone understands what makes something a scam. I was never lied to, cheated, stolen from or tricked into anything. A scam is when somebody says ” I won the lotto gve me a thousand dollars to collect my prize and I’ll give you a million tomorrow…” SCAM! If somebody says I’ll sell you my Honda for $200,000 it is not a scam, it’s a bad deal. IF that person buys the car, they were not scammed, they were stupid. If you dont use your brain you will not get the deals, but they are there. They do not misrepresent. God forbid you have to read stuff AND think about stuff too!!! And how dare a company try to generate a profit!!! You guys are dopes. Learn about it, think about it, and make a decision that best suits you. Maybe that would be better tha going on boards and typing libelous little rants!! Knuckleheads.

    The “scam” is not, as most people have noted, within the bidding process. The rules are clear. You have to read them thoroughly. However, the “scam” exists in their marketing/advertising campaigns that are in my opinion, extremely misleading. They falsely portray amazing deals to the masses in an effort to lure unsuspecting persons to their website. That end of their business is cheap and sleezy. Better Business Bureaus should be on them. Like most have noted, “if its too good to be true, it ain’t true”. Steer clear of this business.

    Don’t buy in to their BS. Many people will have to lose until someone actually wins, they tell you the bid goes up a penny, that is true but that penny bid cost you 60 cents so if you big a dollar thats 100 bids times .60 is 60$ so quibids is making 60$ every dollar minus the cost of the item. The auction can also go on forever each time someone bids the timer resets to about 15 seconds and it does it over and over so theres no real time in when the auction ends. You could get lucky and win but really the chances are slim. 10$ gift cards are also jokes but at times easy to win but you still need to pay shipping on it so you end up not saving much or not saving at all. Some people get so caught up into this that they actually think there profiting but after you add up all money you wasted you soon realize what BS you got your self into. Note also you see the odd reply to someone saying Quibids sucks, these guys are just trying to make you waste your money on quibids probably even there employees. There is no science behind it it’s just pure luck, you never know when someone can log on and start bidding, sometimes you might think you are even bidding against a bot or something.

    don’t know how to close out but if you have bids to use and don’t want to waste them… use them up on gift cards for places you would go to ..its like getting money back.. If you win the bid then you getting cheaper if not at least you can use the bids you have placed as credit toward purchasing the card.. this way you don’t lose it all but you need to stick to one card you would really use.. i don’t think i would use this for anything but gift cards… i agree you can get most of these products cheaper at amazon or ebay..
    its not a scam it is what it is… It is the same as any other auction.. you bid someone else bids against you and the may the best person win…i do wonder however if they have someone from the company driving the price up on items –you really don’t know who is bidding against you..

    In this made up scenario the author gives an example of an auction. First one person wouldnt put 2,254 bids on an item alone, this person would have won at the first bid. They will not allow a person to over bid the value of said auction, this is whether you use vouchers or money bids. They do disclose all info when signing up. If you can read you’ll see this. Also the warranty issue is false. Manufacture warranty is covered on your product just the same as if you where to buy it at Walmart. This author obviously didn’t research well, to do your due diligence you should have tried before you judge. Only some states do you pay sales tax with QuiBids otherwise no tax, the fees have been removed from gift cards and the like otherwise they range from a $1 to $2.99. Shipping and handling is more then reasonable look for yourself, and they are shipping to me in Hawaii at the same cost as when I was on the mainland.. I have been playing for a while now I have lost some and I have won some.. If interested do a little research and watch before you play instead of taking an opinion of someone who clearly hasnt done their research. Srvad this new choose your item (new at least in my area, I know they try new things in differents areas before making it available to all) I do not like either it maybe a way for more merchandise but ridiculous from a bidders end, though this is supposedly a trial thing, I really hope so! In general to say it is a scam is just goofy, just because you bought your $60 worth of bids and went without thought and lost,this Doesn’t make it a scam. It also may not be for everyone. Sometimes there is an item I’m going to buy anyway check out the site and see if I can win at a great price, if I lose the auction it’s no lose I just Buy Now either way the worst is I break even. Also to claim that you are only refunded the price paid for the auction upon return /problem with item is also false. You will be refunded that with the option of the cost of bids applied or return of the bids or vouchers you used, you are given the choice. They will also give you free bids for your inconvenience. When all is said and done, it is not for everyone, but people you need to read and read the advice for bidding they give. In 30 days I have paid in $75 and now have $250 in gift cards for walmart,$100 in gas cards and approx $150 in merchandise. Not always this way, but often enough. You just have to pay attention. Good luck to bidders.

    Well, did doesn’t necessarily work for quibids. He’s just really good at playing the quibids casino game. Like someone said, a good analogy to this site is really a casino or gambling site rather than an auction site.

    Consider playing Texas Hold’em at a casino. The players are gambling against each other, at the house (in this case the quibids website) takes a cut of the bets. If this person is really good at the game, of course he or she wants to attracts more players to come gamble. Quibids just happens to be a vehicle to attract the poor souls who are being duped to play along.

    However, there is a issue, when quibids employees themselves start driving up the prices.

    Excellent rebuttal! Someone posted earlier that “you can’t check shipping costs before bidding”…which is totally untrue…all you need to do is click on the item’s picture or the item name, and then scroll to the bottom of the page…there’s NOTHING hidden. I don’t work for Quibids, and I haven’t won that many items, but I have won an item that nobody else happened to be bidding on at the time, and I won it for $0.01 (yes, it cost me the $0.60 for the bid and $6.99 shipping, but with a retail cost of $39.99, it was an incredible savings…and it’s a really cool item!) Maybe it was “beginner’s luck”, but it is definitely possible to purchase items at a discount.

And the jerk who said “of course they’re making money”…I bought an expensive pair of boots for my wifes birthday from a Nordstroms, they told me I had two years to return this item for any reason for a full refund!

    It really isn’t a scam, but they have found an angle that is (just barely)legal and takes advantage of human psychology. If you have tons of time, are patient, have great self control and don’t get sucked into competition, and keep a calculator and a notebook at your side to keep track of your bidding costs, I am sure there are bargains to be had. However, I just watched some auctions for ten minutes, and they stack them in their favor with a nasty trick- in auctions that seem to be about to end within a few seconds, each time there is a new bid they add 10 or 20 seconds depending on the item. It has always been a part of an auction that it ENDS and a part of the strategy for bidding is when to jump in. This can be used both in live auctions and on ebay to “scoop” something in the last ten seconds. It doesn’t always work- I have had somebody with quicker reflexes “scoop” me on ebay, and if you jump in right between going going and gone in a live auction you may miss the item if you are a second too slow, or the auctioneer may halt and not say gone, accept your bid and the person who bid before you may outbid you. But it does work frequently. By adding time, quibid stretches the auction out, more and more people bid, they collect way more money, and you never know when the auction will end, how close you are to the final price or how many .60 cent bids you will have to use. The only useful angles here are someone who has the time to watch the auctions for many hours (I do this on ebay as a part of my business, as a small percentage of items go for a fraction of their value…but that is a different story) or buy things that you are the only bidder on. Bidding on a popular item seems like a good way to throw oodles of money away. It’s sad- if they had a monthly membership with unlimited bidding or even a large amounts of bids (say 1000 a month) or had a far lower bid cost, they could still make money without it being such an expensive proposition for the buyer. It also bothers me you can’t check shipping costs before bidding. I need a push mower and of all things they were selling one- if they charge $3.99 to ship a gift card I shudder to think how much it would cost to ship a lawnmower. I will stick to ebay, yard sales, estate sales, craigslist, clearance sales and freecycle.

    It seems all auctions but the “high-end” items (those with a value of over $1000) are now “your choice” auctions. This is GREAT for Quibids, but for the bidders, it borders on the criminal. If you look at those bidding against you, you can see which item they are currently bidding on, so while you may be the only bidder on the item you want, you now have to out-bid the people bidding on all those other items going off in that group. Evidently Quibids wasn’t making enough $$$ before, and have gotten greedy.

    I see the Oklahoma BBB said the company is good. I wonder if that’s because quibids is a BBB Accredited Business since 09/22/2010 which means they’ve paid to be accredited.
    I don’t think I would believe the BBB in this case.

I’ve got my bidding to a science, and studying an auction and the bidders on it is key to success. I see the same 20 or so people on QUIBIDS all the time, I imagine they recognize my name on it well. This site isn’t a scam, and I pity the people who think it is.

    Read, use logic, and read some more. Don’t listen to these crying fools who didn’t read all the ins and outs before hopping on board. I have a closet full of really cool stuff and a wallet full of gas and Walmart gift cards because I’m not a fool. I’m happy there’s so many dummies that think this is a scam, because it lowers the competition on quibids. PLEASE, stay away from quibids, so I can keep winning, and from time to time pay full price. But mostly winning because I’m an awesome bidder ;)

I am a victim of stupidity and being gullible $60 hard worked for bucks gone in a blink of an eye. I was very angry and just realized how stupid I was. As a worker it sucks to lose your money. I did the “live chat” and all they had to say for themselves was “I’m sorry we can’t do anything about it” And was telling me about transactions only THEY could see because I couldn’t see any of that. Not even an email was available for me to see. We need to keep our eyes peeled and always read what we are signing to, and also not believe commercials and ads.

    Okay guys, I can understand how if you don’t do your research and actually READ how the site works, you could lose your shirt. I am an experienced Ebayer (+15 years) both buying and more recently, selling. After doing my reading, and watching a $50. Canadian Tire gift card go for 24 cents ($14.60 in bid cost) and a $50. Sears gift card go for 9 cents ($5.40 in bid cost), I decided to try it out. Received my first 100 bids for the $60. fee WHICH IS DISCLOSED UP FRONT IF YOU BOTHER TO READ. I tried an auction for a $50. home store gift card. The competition was severe – too many people bidding. Although the card sold for slightly over $3.00, I used 7 bids, so it cost me $4.20 to participate in that auction. Minutes later, I tried an auction for a $25. gift card. I won the auction for one cent, being the only bidder. With shipping of $2.99 plus tax it cost me a total of $3.39. Shall await to see how fast the gift card arrives, but until I have a legit problem, I won’t slam the site. Plus I still have 95 bids left (my first 3 bids were free), and the site awards you free bids. I earned 14 free bids just tonight, so I have more bids to use than I originally paid for. Beginner’s luck?…..maybe.
    You have to use your head on sites like this one, just the same as on Ebay, or at any other auction. As long as I’m saving on things that I need to buy anyways, I think the site has a legitimate use.
    And no, I don’t work for QuiBids. I am retired and live on a disability pension. Anything that can save me money, I am willing to try ONCE. So far, I can’t complain.

    Tell me it’s not a scam!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve been watching their auctions, when only 1 second is left someone bids “1 penny” and goes up to 10 or 20 seconds again, and keeps going on forever, I’ve noticed the same bidder’s name in about 5 different auctions at the same time bidding and bidding again, on things that are up to $30 like a 47″ TV, just do the math, divide $30 into pennies = 3000 X $.60? that’s $1800+!!!! Quibids can pay for 3 47″ TVs with that money!!! Now someone explain me how can someone afford to spend $.60 to put a 1 penny bid down too many times and at different auctions that go up to $30 or more? If it’s not someone working for them, or their own computerized bidding system that outbids real people I don’t see how someone can afford it!!!! And for all of you who say it’s a gamble, there is a big difference between gambling and bidding, this is called Quibids and it’s supposed to be an auction site, it’s not called Quigambles, you want to gamble you go to a casino or gambling site……………Don’t let them rip you off..

    It’s not a scam.Its called gambling.You do have to buy the bids and each bid does cost you .60 but the bid goes up one cent.All you people who say you “wasted” 60.00 or 120.00 there is no way.If you are bidding on an auction with “cash” bids that you purchased NOT VOUCHERS YOU HAVE WON.Then once you get to the value of the product i.e 10.00 g. card it will tell you that you are better to buy it now instead of continuing to bid-I have never not received a product I have won.I have had one occasion where 2 items(identical) were out of stock and they offered an alternate list of like price(or more valuable)products to choose from.Not one or two but about 35-40 and they included all categories not the one I won from.I had to pay no additional shipping and received an extra 25 VOUCHER bids(no cash value)for it not being in stock.I also had the option of waiting to see if the item would become available or taking a 270 voucher bid credit for each item if I wanted nothing from list.Got 2 mini fridges yesterday.You have to be smart,not spend more than you can afford to lose and expect competition because there are alot of people who are winning-I am sure I will get alot of “you work for quibids”no I dont.I pay attention and like going to vegas it is gambling.But as long as you are using your money bids you have the option to buy the product-I see alot of new people who join and bid two or three times and when it gets hot and heavy instead of waiting or continuing(like in a g card situation)where eventually you can buy it for only shipping(1.99)if you reach the top out price they switch to something else and waste their bids.Those are the comments you see here.I spent 45.00 in a bid pack last week(75 bids)and won over 500.00 worth of product.It can be done-you just have to watch and not spend more than you can afford like anything else

Qui Bids is simply a chance for you to get something for a great price, if you have the patience that is. It is not a scam, yes the company is making profit, its a COMPANY for heavens sake! however they do offer the chance for one lucky person to buy something at a very low price!

    I am so glad I checked the reviews before becoming involved. I don’t believe people would just write negative things about companies if they were not taken advantaged of. If this was such a good company it would catch on so fast that you would not be able to handle all of the bids. Why would you stoop to scamming to make a living. I’m sure there are other good things in the world that you could do to make a living. I would like to thank all of you who have taken the time to protect others from these deceitful tactics. We were just trying to save a dollar; especially in today’s economy and you are there ready to pounce. Remember KARMA; Quibids. I don’t care if you don’t own the company, if you represent it in any way, KARMA will reach you too.

    I have never been deceived by Quibids nor have I not received my items. You just need to be willing to wait the clock out and buy the item if you don’t win.(which by the way is very close to retail if you look around)I am a real person with kids and grand kids, the gift cards are great to give away and really work at the store or pump. Never had a problem. Here’s the kicker…I actually read all the details before purchasing bids. If you know how it works, half of these complaints here are fraud in themselves. You can not unknowingly purchase bids. So if you like a challenge or just competition..enjoy it… Just don’t buy bids if you can’t afford to possibly lose it by not buying the item. PS I do not work for them…they work for me!

    It’s a scam, 60 cents a bid with easily 5 bids/minutes you are up to losing $200 an hour just bidding with chances of winning much less than casinos slot machines.For every $1 of the auctioned item price QuiBids makes $60 and the buy it option is no bargain as most (none gift cards) items are priced twice what you could buy them elsewhere,Chance of winning an item that closes for $1 is one in 100 and for an item that closes at $10 is 1 in 1000.That is off-course assuming the bidders are all genuine customers and you are not bidding against QuiBids computers participating as bidders. It’s an internet gambling website that operates under disguise of auction, with odds of winning less than that of casinos slot machines.

    Qui Bids is dreadful – you only benefit if you win – everyone else – loses big time. Plus, they inflated the cost of the item I ended up having to “buy now” not to lose out on the money I spent. Boy was I taken! Never again. They say the item sold for say $25 – well it sold for much more than that – we weren’t bidding pennies – when each bid costs so much more than that. Beware! There is only one winner -and soooooo many losers!

That makes no sense. And of course everyone else looses. That is called competition. I am really sad to see all these people complain about competition.

    BBB does not support any company or business. They only gather reported information from consumers and relay it to people who call them to find out if there is any negative information on a particular business. If no one ever reports the company then they do not have anything to report. Companies join the BBB because they feel it is good advertisement to say they belong to the BBB which consumers feel they are a good legitimate company. If a company have complaints at the BBB – the company will satisfy the complaint and the BBB will report that. Don’t get caught up by that. Companies change their names all the time for fresh kill. I just saw an add on television re: Quibids which sent me to the computer for reviews on this company. Thanks a lot for those of you who report the deceit of companies. We should all stick together and put them out of business. It only takes a few minutes to write that these companies are not in your best interest. I really can’t understand how they can sleep @ nite and I guess they don’t believe in Karma. Keep it up people – let’s report every business who tries to rip you off. Oh by the way I use to work at the BBB and try to encourage businesses to satisfy their complaints against them. It did not always work.

This scam may have worked at the very beginning and some people may have won some nice things, but once they started advertising, well you see where I’m going with this.

I won a pair of Oakley sunglasses (160 retail) for .59 cents + 2.99 shipping. (REAL!) I also won 2 20 dollar subway gift cards, and a $50 gas card! My favorite win was a brand new Odyssey Golf Putter, retail $120, for 1.53 + 12.99 Shipping. I sold the Oakleys on Ebay for 99.99, so I made all my money back on that, and the rest was free, Also I received all items within 5 business days! Stupid, air-headed people, think they are being scammed because they are to lazy to read directions, or understand how the auctions work, and as soon as they waste their entire 60 dollars on an Ipad, they go crying to the internet, yelling scam.

    Welcome to the crowd….I bid on a gift card and finally used more bids than the card was worth so for another two dollars and change I purchased card. That transaction occurred on June 4,2012. After a month of contacting Customer Support the gift card was never delivered. I than contacted the BBB in OK City, OK and two weeks later I got a message that gift card was being processed and I could track it in Order History. The “Scam” folks don’t like problems being reported to the BBB so they blocked my account so I can’t track the gift card.

    I think everyone that says this site is a scam, are just people that have not won anything. I do not work or have been paid by QBids to write this.

    I have been doing Penny Auctions for about 2 years. I started doing them on another site. I found out about Qbids about 3 months ago, it is soooo much better that the other site. I have won quite a few Item on both sites. I won one item on here with ONE BID.

    I like the Buy It Now feature that you can purchase the item, and the value of all the bids you have placed on the Auction is credited. These auction sites do take time, to watch for patterns, to see if the auction is winding down, and names of bidders you will see numerous times. Again you can loose money if you think this is something quick and easy to do. But it can be very much fun, and you can get some great bargains

    I seen a video news reel about Qbids on yahoo. They talked about how they won items for a very low price if you stuck with it long enough to win. So I decided to check it out. When I was signing up I did not see anything about how much it would cost. I thought it was for when you won the bid they would just deduct it from your card. But instead they hit me for $60 that I could not afford. I did not see anything about the cost until I was in the auction. I also did not see anything about it costing you per bid. Very misleading. So I decided to see what happens. I started to bid on an item. The I realized that when the time ran down and the clock reset when someone else bid that it was going to take some time to win. I decided to give up after an hour of going nowhere and just watch to see what the winning bid was. When the clock finally ran out it said item was not sold. I thinking how can this be? Did the winning bidder give up or what? My account said that I still had $60. Boy was that wrong. I got an email from them trying to tell me I have a badge of some sort and decided to reply back with “give me my money back, all $60″. I didn’t get a thing from the site. Today I got a reply that $24 will be returned to my credit/debit card and the remaining balance was deducted for the number of bids I placed. I had no idea that I was paying for the bids. So i got ripped off big time. For me that is not good since I’m on a limited income. I will not be making that mistake again. Do not fall for this scam.Anyone who says it isn’t a scam is part of it. You get nothing for your hard earned money. I hope that someone sues the pants off this ripoff company. Save you money and go by the product at a store! Stay away from Qbids! I am telling everyone everywhere about this scam. They will be no more!!!


    dancer56 says:

    It is not misleading at all. If you bothered to read everything before you started bidding you would know the rules. You are not forced to by bids, and you cannot bid unless you have bids. The only way to get them is to purchase them first.

    They give you 10 bids or so when you sign up, but these are free. Anything beyond that, you must purchase before you can bid. No one forced you to spend $60 you didn’t have, only you

    If you take the time to thoroughly read Quibids.com’s Information page it explains the process of bidding, the starting fees and all information about the auction. It is not exactly easy to win, but with proper research and timing a person can definitely get their money’s worth out of the site. Quibids.com also offers auctions for voucher bids to increase your chances of winning. I signed up and paid the money as an informed consumer. Got into an auction for a fifty dollar gas card and won with one bid. Total cost was $2.00 after shipping since I had received 10 free voucher bids when I signed up.

    Quibids over-inflates the retail price. They are not a scam just a means to draw unsuspecting people to buy a large ticket item for a final selling price far below retail. The unsuspecting person doesn’t realize how much they are bidding and losing. Quibids takes forever to ship. I did an analysis on all auctions in a 12 hour period. 50% of the auctions were for voucher bids. So you spend your prepaid bids trying to buy more bids….DUH. I can’t understand why someone would bid on 15 or 25 voucher bids. Also, another 30% of the available auctions were for gift cards—-another DUH!!!!. They only have a small percentage of real items. I will not be bidding on quibids any longer. BEWARE.

    OK once you figure out that you win your fist auction or 2 for a penny, it wont happen again from my experience. You should only use your real bids $$$ to bid on things you are willing to pay full price for. When your real bids are gone and you use voucher bids, items that normally sell for $0.87 end up selling for over $5.00 which equates to $300 for a $47.00 item. It seems like it is a fixed game, and that you cannot beat the computer.

    My biggest problem with this site is that they choose who you are bidding against by their own criteria. not every member sees the same auctions, or bidders. I had 3 computers running side by side with three different accounts. One with zero bids owed, one with bought bids, and one with free won bids. I saw different auctions and ending prices. With the free bids, i watched the winning bids get run up high, with the zero bids available account, I kept seeing auctions ending with zero bids, but not with the other two accounts. They pick and choose what each bidder sees depending on how much they are making off of you. Not at all a fair and open auction. it might be their rules which you agree to, but hardly open and fair. I won 3 auctions with my bought 60 bids, and won nothing with my 60 voucher bids. They design it to put you up against other bidders with free bids to use them up.

    I heard of Quibids over the radio and even saw a commercial on T.V., and I immediately got sucked in. My dreadful experience began by having to purchase bids before I could even start bidding on products ($60). I really wanted to cash in on a new T.V. so I began bidding. On many occasions the bid clock wound down to zero and after additional seconds elapsed more bidders appeared. I continued to bid with the exact same experience (i.e. 3, 2, 1, 0, new bidder). After spending $200 on “bid vouchers” I finally woke up and realized Quibids was making their money off of people buying “bid Vouchers”. Please save your money, My new T.V. will now cost me an additional $200 more than expected.

    How does an iPad sell for $10? Here’s how it works: you buy your bids @ 60 cents each. Each bid drives the price up one penny. If an item sells for $10.00 then quibids makes $610 (1000 bids @ 60 cents + $10 winning bid). If the item is valued at $100 then Quibids makes a big profit. If the item is valued at $1000 then Quibids loses big.. It’s a gamble for everyone. I find it entertaining and fun and I see it go both ways ALL THE TIME. It’s not a scam it’s a GAMBLE. That’s what all penny auctions are. Understand what it really is. There are a lot of comments from uninformed people that spew whatever their uneducated opinion is. If you want to know how the website works do your homework and read about it (it’s no big SECRET), unbiased blogs and articles are all over the Internet. The way I see it the larger the item the larger the gamble. I go after the smaller items (usually NOT electronics, tablets, or anything valued over $200) and have done pretty well. I have been on the website for about 6 weeks and have ALWAYS been shipped what I’ve won.

You honestly can not say this is a simple gambling site because with gambling you have the opportunity to place a wager that no one else can match without paying a company to be able to place the wager.

    Signed up for Quibids and found their process to be very transparent
    for those who take the time to read. You have to know what a penny
    auction is, how it works before judging the site itself. Most people’s complaints circle around whether penny auctions are scams or not. Regardless of what people believe of this system, the QUIBIDS site itself is a pretty good site for administering penny auctions.
    What I liked about them is that there are NO hidden costs. Every
    cost, whether inflated or not, is presented to the user BEFORE they commit to anything.

    For those complaining about costs, the model of this company is very transparent. Penny auctions make tons of money for the owners and the select few lucky winners do get great bargains. This is a form of a ponzi scheme but if you are aware of penny auction rules and accept it, quibids can be entertaining.

    I got a few good gift card deals by winning the auctions and have also purchased some “BUY NOW” items for lost auctions.

    Gift cards are ideal items. For those thinking they’ll buy IPADs and DLSR’s for $10 I would not hold my breath if I was you. Yes someone has to WIN them, but its a lottery really, not a structured auction.

    If penny auctions are your thing, this is a great site, if you think penny auctions are a scam, stick to EBAY!

    This is a LIE folks. Chris either works for the company or he is paid by the company to create a false review. You will lose your time and money. You will not win the item. Quibids bids for their own item against you and you will always lose. Look at all the 1 star reviews and then a few FALSE BAIT 4 star reviews. If you were smart you would pay attention to the 1 star reviews.

    NO HIDDEN COSTS? OMG! When have you ever gone to an auction and had to pay the company money to buy your bids, wake up. If this was an honest site you would be able to make your “penny” bids without having to buy your penny bids first. Plus do the math $60 for 45 1 cent bids??????? its been a long time since I’ve been to school but that’s not correct. Unfortunately I bit into the scam.

    Like many others, I saw a couple positive articles/reviews on the site and let the hype of these “crazy deals” get the best of me… I put down my $60 for 100 bids and started after a watch I had been looking for forever. It was close to a $200 watch and some were going for only a few cents, some were significantly higher. Got caught up in a couple of bidding wars trying to win one, and finally ended up winning for $0.06. When it was all said and done, I spent $30-something on bids alone to win this watch (plus taxes and fees on the item won). But it was all good because I just won a $200 watch for $30, right? Flash forward to a few days later… I get an email saying they were having issues with the supplier and would not have the watch in stock (EVER apparently). They sent me the option to refund my money for taxes/fees/shipping and give me complementary voucher bids or offer me a list of items I could choose from in place of the watch. This list changed, usually daily, for about a week. At one point, they had about 13 different tricycles I could choose from, because that’s such a sensible replacement for someone who was in the market for a watch! I refuse to take the voucher alternative because that guarantees me absolutely nothing. I spent $75 on bids alone on the site, which resulted in the watch fiasco and 2 $10 Walmart gift cards. I’ve been emailing back and forth with them for about a week asking for other replacements or to get the entire value back in gift cards or returned to my credit card. I keep getting the same type “I’m sorry, these are the only replacement items for that product.” responses. At this point, I’ll take about anything I think I can turn around and sell on eBay to get my money back and be done with it.

    BEWARE – Quibids will take your money, time and in the end, probably anything you actually “won” as well.

Quibids can just manipulate the auction and make it look like a person is bidding while in fact they’re the one’s who actually bid. Think about it, they can make it look like they’re the last bidder, so they will win the product(which is already theirs to begin with) and get the money too! This is a scam!!!!

    I’m STILL in the process of trying to get my gift cards sent to me that I won SEVEN MONTHS AGO!!!! I went for the gift cards bc it seemed like the safest bet (if the card was worth 25 bucks I’d just keep bidding until I won or I reached $25 in bids and buy myself out). The first ones never came… the second ones I received were canceled because they took two months to come (I didn’t know they were coming), and then the third ones never came. So now I have my second set of canceled cards and nobody knows what they are doing at Quibids to help me.

    If you still want to do it take this advice: think of everyone else bidding as an addicted gambler or someone working for quibids that sits there and drives the price up.

    A product that was sold for $5.67 is actually 567 bids (goes up .01) which is actually $340 (567 bids x .60 cents per bid). Obviously the $340 is not from just one person but if the product is a $100 gift card potentially 3 people could have reached the $100 dollar mark and bought it out. Plus shipping, plus tax, when you could have went out and saved your time and some money and bought it at the store.

    I signed up and got 100 bids for 60 bucks. I won 4 things 1st ring for .37 plus s&h, another gemstone diamond ring for .01 + s&h, a necklace for .02 + s&h, and pearl and diamond earrings for .17 + s&h now just waiting to receive my winnings. Should receive the 1st of my wins today according to the shipment tracking. So far I don’t see any problem with the site and if they are using bots that’s money lost for them not every bid made they receiving .60 because there bot bid 100 times minus that from the 2400 they made. Also I won auctions with extra bids which cost me nothing. And won an item for nothing even thou I made 15 to 25 bids for free. Also they aren’t making money on my free bids… So a lot more factors to think about…

    It’s just like gambling. You really never know. Gotta be in it to win it. But be smart about it. Let the people that go crazy on bids bid on it for a bit Then Once you get that gut felling try a bid or 2 Just Don’t go to Crazy on the bids You don’t wanna lose all your bids on one Item.
    Also before you get into bidding on qubids or any auction’s try to research the item you want to bid on and see what the going rate really is and see how cheap you can get it for from other sites. And/or then Don’t be in such a rush to bid because if you are you might most likely waste and lose all your bids and the item you wanted. Like I said you never know though its a gamble.
    ALSO here is another good advice. When you have some spare time Try to spend some time studying on how much people usually bid on the item or item’s and that should give you a rough idea on how much it will cost you and it should give you an idea when to start biding…

    I will write more later if I get time. I already have book’s about auctions with a bunch of advice and tips but I already listed just a few good tips and I hope it helps you guys out.

    Here is a factual explanation of how some Quibids customers can get some great deals, IF they have good luck, good timing and the patience to wait out the competition and become a “winner.” Most likely, Quibids will not allow this posting, since it also points out the “obvious” way that it makes a lot of money from all those bidders who do not win (i.e., from the losers). The following information is for an auction that I started tracking this morning, when the listing showed that there was only about 5 minutes left in the auction. That was over 12 hours ago! At that time, the bidding was at just $0.15 for an item that was advertised with a retail price of $699.99, so I became quite interested. Meanwhile, here are the facts:

    Each bidder pays Quibids $0.60 for each bid they make, but the sale price is increased just $0.01 for each bid (The bids for some items go for a higher bid increment, like $0.02 or $0.05). This is a good way for Quibids to show that the final sale price appears to be very low…and sometimes it actually is, at least for the “winner.” If the “winner” wins the bidding for a final price of just $10, this means that 1000 bids were received on the item (1000 times $0.01 is $10). This also means that Quibids received a total of $600 from all of the bidders (1000 times the $0.60 paid for each bid), not including the $10 plus shipping that the final bidder (“winner”) will pay. If the final bidder has only had to bid just 25 times to get the item, and if the item retails for $100, the “winner” has received a very good deal for a total price of just $25 (25 bids at $0.60 each plus the sale price of $10), plus the shipping charge; the winner is, obviously, very happy with the purchase. Quibids is, obviously, also very happy with the sale, because it has sold an item the item that retails for $100 for a whopping $610 ($600 for the bids that were bought plus $10 for the final sale amount)…plus the shipping charge. Most likely, Quibids, as a reseller, got the item for a wholesale price, not the full retail amount, so their profits are even higher. Here is an even better case in point:

    For the item that I was tracking that retails for $699.99, the item just sold for $105.11 at 3:42 a.m. CDT (I was too busy writing this “helpful” essay to enter my bid!:o). This was apparently a very good deal for the winner, who somehow timed the bidding just right and got by with making very few bids during the last few minutes of the sale. It was a very bad deal for the several bidders who bid this thing up, while staying up into the wee hours of the night to do so. Of course, Quibids doesn’t care what time it is, because they get paid while they are sleeping…and they are VERY happy that they raked in a whopping $6,411.71 for this sale (The sale price of $105.11 means there were 10,511 bids at $0.60 each plus the $105.11 sale price)…plus their shipping charge! They probably paid no more than $500-600 for that item, so they sold it for over 10 times their cost. To be fair, I should also say that I noticed that several of these items sold for under $40, so Quibids only took in a lousy 4 times what they paid for the item.

    Bidding Tips: Do not bid too soon; just be ready to bid. Set a limit as to how many bids you will “waste” while tracking the item, because each bid drives up your total costs. Try to determine how long the bidding will last by counting and watching the other bidders and studying how they switch from single bids to “BidOMatic” bids. When the number of BidOMatic bidders gets down to one or two, it’s more likely that they will run out of bids, so that a single bidder can jump in and win the bidding at the last second. I suppose you could also try adding a BidOMatic bid late in the game, too, just so you are not beat out by someone with better timing of their single bids. Look for sales that are going on late at night (early in the morning) and midweek, when normal people are sleeping! Even Quibids advises you to try to get something for about one third of the posted retail price. Know what things are really worth.

    The above sale happened in the middle of the night on the weekend, when the normal people were still out partying…or maybe the winner just got home from a party and was just looking for a little more excitement.

    Bad customer service. Bad site. Bad company. I signed up after stumbling across a positive article on the company. Wanted to give it a shot as they explained how it works pretty well (from what I thought). I ready “Quibids 101″ and saw that they were willing to refund your $60.00 bid package if you signed up and realized it wasn’t for you. I signed up and it was completely obvious that quibids uses bots to hike the price up on the consumer. I didn’t even bid once and sent a request to cancel and refund my account 55 minutes after I signed up.

    Now I’ve sent a dozen emails that have yet to get a response and I’m put on indefinite hold when I try to get in touch with their call center to clear it up.

    Buyer beware, this company is more disorganized and dangerous to your wallet than a Gypsy Circus.

    QuiBids Rocks! I won a Cuisnart Espresso Machine for $4.68 & Cuisnart Coffee Machine (with bean grinder attached) for $0.21! both are originally retailed at 199.00! I Also have won 6 gift cards $10, 15 & $50 cards for pennies on the dollar!

    With shipping: the espresso machine came to $21, and the coffee machine w/grinder $15.00. This was a major steal!!!!

    Qui Bids works, but you are investing money to bid. the larger package you by of bids, the more you will save per dollar.

    It’s a gamble, because you may win big or loose all your money. You need to become familiar with KEY strategies.

    1.BID WATCH: monitor it first because there are many auctions quibids will have on that item. Don’t be too anxious. Play the game like poker. Don’t show all your cards.

    2. TIME OF DAY: I EXPERIENCED that bidding late at night is NOT GOOD- because everyone is up! early morning hours 3-6am i was successful, and 8-11am is a good time because people are at work. I live on the WEST COAST (PST) so take the time zone into consideration. Friday nights are EZ wins, while everyone is out partying I was winning the gift cards like water! Raining cards.

    Again Qui bids is a gamble, but you may walk away with nothing or items for below cost! Good Luck

    Quibids is intentionally misleading. Personally, I haven’t used their site – but this synopsis gives a very good description of their business model (consistent with other sources, and very easy to follow).

    I say that they are intentionally misleading because of the qoutes from reputable newspapers and programs… they use excerpts from negative articles that sound favorable out of context.

    Example: “Fans of penny auctions say they mix the competitive charge of Internet auction sites like eBay with the suspense and gratification of flash sales and online [gaming].”

    Eg: Item won with 1000 points (not $10.00)= bids totaling $600 + s/h, etc…

    Everybody is forgetting one calculation.

    If an ipad sells for $50.00 = 5000 bids = $3,000.00. But you have to take away the loss to the winner from this revenue of $3,000.
    If their cost for the ipad is $600.00, then it’s $3,000 dollars that came in, but now they loose $550.00, because they have to ship one ipad for $50.00. So their take away now is $2,450.00.

    Consider this when you do your calculations..thanks

    Penny auctions are in a grey zone between the terms legit or scam but I’d put a little weight on the legit side. I would sort the nature of businesses like this putting the “cleanest” business on top.

    - Retail
    - Ebay Auctions
    - Lottery
    - Penny Auctions
    - Poker
    - Trivial Questions
    - …
    - …
    - MLM
    - Ponzi Schemes
    - Nigerian Scam
    - “You’ve won lottery” scam
    - and etc

    Among the booming number of penny auction sites with approximately 70% of them failing shortly after launch, Quibids is one of the best and biggest.

    I made an experiment, I found few actions for about $100 value something with few ppl – 3 or 4 , as soon as I made a bid within the next few minutes there are 11-14 ppl bidding. I stop bidding and whoaaa , some one wins a $100 item for $0.39 WITH 14 ppl bidding ….lol …I played few 25 bids vouchers ($15 value) to the end just to see how it will turn out – guess what – won them all at the price of ~$3.50 – my cost was close to $20 each with delivery and BidOMatic.

    My wife wanted that Panasonic TCP50X3 50″ VIERA Plasma HDTV, and I am there…ended up with Buy It Now
    costing me over $700, but what happened is as soon as I ended bidding was WON by someone …

    My conclusion is – bot driven site – and probably most WON items are false – only advertisement

Whenever you are asked to give any personal or financial information online your 1st step should to to read the terms of the agreement! They tell you flat out in Quibids 101 not to bid if you can’t go the full price. Nothing that costs money is ever to good to be true, ALL the time! I am continually amazed how some people think they can blame a company like Quibids just because they THEMSELVES didn’t take the time to read the directions(small print). Who in their right mind would let a kid anywhere near their credit card information, to use online, without supervision?? Many adults are too careless to use credit cards much less the average child! I have 3 kids & they wouldn’t get within 10feet of my credit card without me watching.

    Look this is a game of chance. One person wins and a lot of people loose. It works pretty much like the lottery which is run by our state governments. I joined and I won my first auction with one bid. Now like the lottery which I won a few bucks on my first time I will most likely never score again.Just use self control and know at the onset that like Vegas the odds are against you.

    Actually the guy that wrote the article is wrong. Although it is hard to win because it is so competitive, you can get items for cheap. Above he said that you would actually pay $1,352.40 to buy an Ipad if the auction price was $22.54…That’s wrong. If the final auction price was $22.54 that means there were 2254 bids @ 0.60 each, he’s correct. Where he is wrong is that the winner didn’t make all 2254 of those bids…All of the bidders bidding on the item made those bids as a whole. So, the winner may have put in 150 bids to win which would equal 150 x 0.60 = $90 + $22.54 + $9(s/h). So, the winner would have won the Ipad for $121.54. The only thing that sucks is the other people that bid lost their money, so if they also bid 150 times they lost their $90.

    I think you just read it wrong.

    “So an iPad that retails for $499 but was won for the grand total of 2,254 one cent bids (or $22.54) which actually cost 60 cents each means that the iPad just sold for $1352.40.

    Though the person who wins the item usually has paid less than retail for what they have received, citing $22.54 as the winning bid is extremely misleading.”

    It clearly says that the person with the winning bid got the item for far less than retail. However, the money collected in the bidding is more than the item would have cost.

    steve says:
    April 19th, 2012 at 5:33 am

    You read wrong. He said that final cost of the item was $1,352.40, which is right, when you take into account every bid, including the winners, and the actual dollar value of it.

    say the price of an item you just one is $100.

    maybe you bid 25 times on it, so you pay $100 + 25 bid @ $.60 ea. that’s $115. But when you take into account the other 75 bids it took to get to 100, you have to factor $100 + 100 bids@ $.60ea = $160

    So the item may have sold for only $100, and YOU may have only paid $115, but the money they got for it was $160.

    The OP is 100% correct.

    Flat out it’s gambling not an auction. You buy bids. If you don’t win, you also lost. Meaning when you bid you don’t get your money back like you do with a real auction. So the penny auctions are making more money on the losers then they do on the winner. These websites should be banned.

Being a stupid, reckless person I was, I signed up and didn’t even know it charged $60.00 to my account. Everything is bogus about this sight, especially the bidding. It’s like they use bots against you so you won’t win anything, and they take you’re money away! I am unsatisfied with this site, they should close it down! QuiBids is a waste of money and time, and they don’t help with anything! Don’t be fooled by these hyenas, they take your money and don’t do a thing for refund, I’d think their laughing in your faces right now! Of course you don’t win anything, and they post fake pictures online about people getting their stuff and being positive! This penny-auction site is a no-auction site, those prices are too good to be true. And those standing up for this site, you’re all bogus, and fakers, liars! Even if you do win something, you’re probably not gonna get it. Fake stuff everywhere for you’re money, QuiBids is a cheap rip-off, the owner of the site is a fake too, like most free or cheap popular stuff! If you don’t believe me and you register, go to your credit card account and maybe you’ll believe me then. Go on real sites like eBay, or Amazon! (Though I prefer eBay.)

    I was looking on a a site for hotel rates when this site QUIBIDS came up on the side bar as advertising IPADS for 43.00 dollars and for canadian residents only and only one per family. I entered the information needed to get on the site to bid/pay, and before i had a chance to bid,they took my info and said that I just bid 67.00 dollars but didn’t get the IPAD but earned 100.00 dollars in credits by spending 67.00 dollars on nothing for more bidding (which makes no sense at al if one thinks they are actually buying something in return for their money).Thats when my computer said on the upper right that there was suspicious activity so at that point, we knew something was wrong and when we tried to get out of the site. the whole screen faded and a rectangular area came up on the screen asking us to confirm our birth date over 18 ( and actual full date of birth), which we would not give so they could further steal personal info. When I didn’t put the birthdate they wanted ,it said go to customer service which I tried (many times) but it kept going back to the birth date constantly. My husband and I called the Visa Security centre to inform them about the scam/suspicious activity and ended up canceling our card because they were setting us up to SCAM US MORE. Glad to get out and this QUIBIDS scam company is nothing more than a license to steal. its fraud and set up to advertise to make people think that they are legitimate but beware people. PROTECT YOURSELF and your hard earned money from these devils.

    I saw their add on TV so I decided to give it a look-see, considering almost every single other penny auction sites are frauds.

    Too be honest I was skeptical at first and yes, they do have sneaky ways of getting you to spend money. Bidding on an item is an adrenaline rush and in order to keep bidding and (possibly) win what you want, you have to buy the bids at .60 a piece.

    I do understand that they are sneaky and a lot of people are mad because they lost all their money. Well I was one of those people. I spent all my money buying bids. I did win a few auctions and THEY DID SEND EXACTLY WHAT I BID ON TO ME IN THE MAIL WITHIN THE 7-10 BUSINESS DAYS AS PROMISED. They do not lie.

    But they do what they do to make money. How else are they going to sell a brand new $600 IPad to you for only $14? If they didn’t do what they did, then they would be bankrupt.

    You can’t be bitter because you got carried away and lost all of your rent money. That’s your fault. Not theirs. They are just doing their job trying to make a profit. You should have been smart enough to know when to stop bidding.

    The Winner IS a winner and does get a great deal on the Item BUT the losing bidders are REALLY LOSERS because they PAY and get nothing. Imagine bidding on Ebay and having to pay your bid even though you didn’t win…. That’s what happens here. One winner, 30 losers = 31 people pay… If you like paying (with deductions from your bank account) and getting nothing in return, give QuiBids a try….

    @Bill… If you spent a hundred bids for the iPad, it would’ve been $60 spent on bids plus the winning price (let’s say $15). QuiBids would’ve made 1500*.60 = $900 for a $600 iPad, but that doesn’t really matter to you. You spent only $75 on the iPad. How is that not a good deal?

    Bill says:
    April 14th, 2012 at 2:46 pm

    Jessica you’re being fooled as Quibids doesn’t sell the $600 iPad for $14. That filal auction price of $14 is actually $840 (1400 penny bids at 60 cents each = $840) so Quibids made a profit of $240. They are not giving anything away. Whether you win or not you still paid for ALL your bids at 60 cents each. Think about that if you bid up an item by $2.50 you would have actually spent $150 and if you lost the auction you lost that $150. How do we even know that real people even win those items anyways?

    Good points Jessica If anyone can make a valid argument against her points, i’d like to hear it. I haven’t gone on the site before but I’m thinking about it. Self control seems to be the operative phrase. If I spend .60 cents on 3 or 4 items and win one well below cost, why not? Set a budget and stick to it. Only buy something if it is a complete win for you. The fact that they are trying to actually “make money” does not phase me. I trust myself. Am I missing something?

    I just got a call from my credit card saying that there was unusual activity on my card. Come to find out, my 12 year old son had used my info that is built in to his phone to purchase bids and participate in auctions. He spent $422.11 and all he won was a $25 gift card to Walmart. I contacted the company and they told me the only way I could even have a chance at getting a refund was if I had my son arrested for fraud and identity theft! And then theres only a Chance! When I talked to my son, he said that every auction he participated in, that when he placed a bid with seconds left on the timer, he would get notified that he bid too late and the auction was closed. That happened to him on 6 items he paid .60 for each bid. That’s how he spent almost $400. On bids that he mysteriously bid too late and mused the item. What a scam! The Customer Service Representative from quibids I spoke to on the phone told me KIDS can bid, as long as they have credit card info and enter in any birth date that makes them over 18. And that they are not responsible. The child is. And if you want any chance at resolution, you have to have them arrested. I am so angry with my child. He said that he didn’t know it was ‘real money’ because it claims to be for ‘Entertainment Only’!!! I can’t afford to be out $400. I don’t want to arrest my son. I don’t know what to do. But something needs to be done about this site!!!!

I am needing a new computer very bad. So like stupid me, I clicked on it, then I registered. After I done so, it showed me my account, and of course I did not get the notebook, but I did get a bill for $60.00 for 100 bids. Which I did not even know I had done. The only thing I did do was to click on the notebook and then register and they took $60 from me. I have asked them to return my money and to deactivate my account and I told them I would never go back on their site again. At this time I do not know if they have refunded my money or not.

    This site isn’t bogus unless your a mentally challenged person. It’s simple buy your bids in packs and spend them wisely. If you can control your urge to bid every 5 seconds than you will have a better chance to win. The website makes .60 cents for every time a person clicks but that’s up to you whether you wanna bid or not. I only payed 15$ for a pair of Dre.Beats and that included my bids spent,shipping and handling, and my winning price. This website is a good way to get the things you want for cheap and make a profit off of the items you buy. Some people make a living off of sites such as Quibids. Just bid smart and enjoy your purchases.

If you read all of the posts before yours then, you know not everyone was clicking (and simultaneously bidding) “every 5 seconds”. Some never even placed a bid nor did they buy any packs of bids. Yet, this site still charged things to their credit cards. You are very fortunate that you’ve had luck with bidding and winning… so many others have not.

    Reason for Rating
    BBB rating is based on 16 factors. Get the details about the factors considered.

    Factors that lowered QuiBids’ rating include:

    Length of time business has been operating.
    Factors that raised QuiBids’ rating include:

    Complaint volume filed with BBB for business of this size.
    Response to 870 complaint(s) filed against business.
    Resolution of complaint(s) filed against business.
    BBB has sufficient background information on this business.
    QuiBids is an online auction site through which consumers compete for the opportunity to purchase goods. Consumers are advised to read and understand all of the information provided on the company website prior to becoming involved with the process. The rules for purchasing goods through QuiBids’ auctions are different from other auction sites, in which potential bidders create an online identity, shop the auctions, and place bids on items of interest. At the end of the auction period, the bidder who has committed to the highest price for the item wins it and then purchases it from the seller. QuiBids is part of a next generation of auction sites in which participants purchase bids, then pay those bids toward the item of their choice. Whoever has invested the most bids in the item at the end of the auction reserves the right to purchase it; those who have paid bids into the pot in the hopes of winning the item lose that item and the bids paid toward winning it. However, if the bidder wishes to purchase the lost item, the bidder is able to purchase it using a Buy It Now feature. “Buy It Now” allows bidders to purchase the item at retail value, minus the cost of bids used in the auction. Some restrictions may apply. Additionally, QuiBids’ policy is to add time to the auction period each time a user places a bid; each bid adds time to the auction. The last participant when the timer runs out wins the product. Another practice for consideration by potential bidders is a concept that, unlike other auction sites, QuiBids’ auctions are not open to any interested seller. Products are sold new from the original manufacturer; should a buyer encounter problems with a product, policies are in place to address these issues. Consult the site and its policies for details.

    In August 2011, the BBB became aware that QuiBids.com completed an internal controls audit conducted by Grant Thornton, a well-respected accounting and professional services firm. Grant Thornton states that it performed extensive testing in order to determine that QuiBids maintains effective controls providing reasonable assurance that bids are place by bona fide users and does not manipulate the bidding process to inflate the bid price or affect who wins the auction (no use of bots, shill bidding or bidding by employees), and in addition, QuiBids maintains effective controls to provide reasonable assurance that winning auctions and ‘Buy Now’ orders are fulfilled (i.e. shipped).

    Of the complaints processed by the BBB since opening its file on QuiBids, nearly all of the disputes result from misunderstandings concerning the site’s “bid to buy” policies that could have been avoided if the bidders had read and understood the auction site’s design and policies. The BBB urges consumers to read and understand all of the site’s policies before becoming involved with an auction or purchasing bids. Consumers should also understand that the times reported by the site during the auction and real time may not match, especially at the close of an auction; this is not a deceptive action on the part of the site, but rather a function of computer software that may create apparent delays in processing information across the internet. Such delays may be caused by anything from the company’s servers to the consumer’s own online connection and computer’s abilities and do not necessarily mean that the company is cheating the public.

    The Better Business Bureau has processed a number of complaints from consumers questioning a $60.00 debit charged to their accounts after signing up for the company’s services. On the same web page in which users enter credit or debit card data, the sign-up form shows three times that the initial starter package includes $60 of bids. By completing the sign-up form, the user is purchasing those bids and whatever card is listed is authorized to be debited that amount. It should be noted that, also displayed on the same page is a “100% guarantee” promising satisfaction with the website and its services. Prospective users are encouraged to read and understand any company’s policies and guarantees prior to signing up for services or surrendering personal banking information.

    This is copied directly from the BBB website. So for all you people out there that think it is a scam or that they drive up bidding with bots or employees, HERE IS THE PROOF THAT THEY ARE LEGIT!!


    Diane says:
    April 17th, 2012 at 9:14 am

    No where on their site does it explain the $60 charge. There is no contact number to reach anyone at, and the phone number that shows up on my bank statement does not connect to anyone! They do not represent the process clearly, and they are certainly a scam outfit. Misleading.

    I spent an entire night and $200 dollars convinced that I could win a bid. After about 6 hours and 6 very close bids, I was always outbid by some user by a fraction of a second. It was almost like a bot was holding my bid and then outbidding me. This happened even when I knew that the price had gone much higher that it should have and I put my bids on auto bid in order to win the bid, still I got beat. I am convinced that the site is a scam and they use bots to outbid you. Never again, stay away. The money you will lose on this site should be better spent at eBay or at online stores. You will lose with these guys!

    This site would be okay if they actually were telling the customer the truth about what was going on! They say that all bids are available for their customers to bid on and that is just not the truth! They have this section that is strictly for the beginners of the game to play. I am somewhat okay with that section because they do not allow anyone that has ever won a bid to win an action from that area, and actually if you have won an auction then you no longer have access to view any of those auctions.

    Now here is where I am furious about, It is NOT only the beginners auctions that they are restricting from bidders. They are allowing people that they pick and choose to be allowed to bid on certain items and the rest of us cannot. I don’t know about you all but there is nothing more annoying to me than to see an auction going and you click on it and instead of a place where the Bid is at you get an Unavailable instead. There are multiple people that have won at least 3 things each being able to bid on those items, and you get to just watch them bid on it when you want to bid on it too. But for you none of those items available when you search for them to try to find one that might have a Bid listed instead of an Unavailable but find nothing listed in the sites search results. Yet when you are not logged into their site then there is four items that showed up for auction within the next 24 hours. I got upset and sent an email to their support@quibids.com and this is the answer that I got in return for my question about why wasn’t I allowed to bid on a certain auction while others that had won multiple items were able to bid and I couldn’t.
    Blake, (CDT):

    Thank you for contacting support. All users on QuiBids are offered the same items to bid on, however auctions for the same items are offered at varying times for each individual bidder. The main reason for this is due to the high quantity of auctions and users that participate daily on QuiBids. By limiting these auctions, our main goal is to increase the chances of users winning items. QuiBids attempts to limit some auctions to participants of comparable skill, as determined by QuiBids, to enhance user experience and maintain a viable business model. In so doing, QuiBids may limit which auctions are available to particular users based on any factors deemed appropriate by QuiBids in its sole discretion, including experience of the user, historical success of the user, demographic factors, prior bidding and spending activity, and other factors. In particular, QuiBids may limit certain auctions to less experienced or successful users in any manner QuiBids deems appropriate to optimize the overall user experience of all QuiBids users. You acknowledge that You may be, and You consent to being, excluded from auctions at QuiBids discretion. Hopefully this helps provide some clarification on this topic.

    Our number one goal is to maintain a great user experience for all customers, along with balancing heavy strain on our servers.

    I went back and read in full detail of their terms page and found what I had missed at their http://www.quibids.com/help/terms.php but it’s right above the section that says “Odds of Winning Auctions” section. If I had seen that then I am sure I wouldn’t have wasted my time on Quibids.com. Lesson learned! I will use up all of my bids and close the account. IF you do not close the account after 3 years they charge you 5 bids every month, so just be warned.

    Hope this helps those that are thinking about joining this site, just know that you wont be allowed to bid on everything that others are allowed to.

    Definitely a gambling site. I have noticed several times where auctions will “close” with the “winner” paying only 10-30 cents for an item. The exact same item five minutes later is about to close, I place a bid and suddenly there are 12 other people bidding driving the cost of a $10 gift card up to where you end up using the “buy it now” feature. Of course two minutes later another $10 gift card sells for 10 cents. I really think they have employees who have unlimited “bid” accounts trying to drive up the cost of each item – and by cost, I mean the number of 60 cent bids. Remember, something that is $1 has actually cost the users $60 in bids. They act much like a casino – let you win $20 and then take the next $100 or more. Total scam.

    This company is a complete joke and are continuously ripping the American people off with false advertisement. They will eventually go bankrupt and I know that they will get what they have coming to them for ripping so many American people off. So soke it up while you can quibids owners, karma is a bxtch and you will eventually pay for what you are doing.

    I have only two complaints to this website. I hate it how the time jumps back up and slows down as it finishes the count down! That isn’t a fair auction! What kind of count down is that! As for the BidoMatic, they should really remove that function. What kind auction allows bidder to not have to pay attention to their bids! That isn’t a fair! I would admit that it is a cool feature to use, not saying that i did, but it is a feature that should be ban because the computer is doing the bid for the bidder. These are my reasons for quitting Quibids.

    Don’t fall sucker for this site. I don’t understand How I can try for an item one day and it sells after only 6 bids, then the same time the next day it sells after 450 bids. something seems fishey with this site.

    complete Scam and waste of your time and money. I got lured in and had to spend the 60.00 for inital “bids” and what a joke. the one time I hit BID with 1-2 seconds left and somehow it didn’t register and the time ran out item sold…hmmmmmmmm

    True rip in the sense of the word.
    The lure is obvious, what is not, is the actual cost of what you are bidding for in the heat of the moment.
    Hidden is the money spent buying bids.
    This is to be avoided.

    Quibids admits that they will limit or remove auctions that you are likely to win as a way to make the experience “more enjoyable” for everyone!!! That is a scam!!! You should be allowed to bid on anything at any time!!!!

    I thought Quibid was a scam too, but my friend (a real person) won a 850+ camera for $30 with only a couple of bids. He has the camera and it works great.

    I tried another site zbiddy (not as much stuff on there), but got 2 restaurant.com gift cards for $7 including S&H, and a USB flash drive for less than amazon (which has the best prices) with only 1 o2 2 bids each. Note: I observe some people pay much more and some people pay a little less. (Also I will see if I get these items in a timely fashion)

    I wasn’t too happy with the selection (quibid seems to have a better selection), so I contacted the customer service couple of times, always got a person right away, and they gave me a gas coupon for $100 and refunded me 1/2 the amount on the bids I purchased. So I’m out $50, but I’ve already got $100 to restaurants I normally eat at, and $100 in gas…so I’m trying the bidding for the bigger items to see if it’s a scam…really I’ve paid nothing. The only thing about the gas is it’s a rebate thing…so we’ll see if it really works.

    With that said, I am skeptically about trying Quibid, not bc I think it’s a “scam” per say…but because it is hard to win. They don’t have that many “hot” items and sometimes you get lucky (if you have nothing better to do than sit by your computer for 24 hours straight…) So depends on how “valuable” your time is. Also to me the deal I want is $10 for something over $500…but then that would be wishful thinking right. LOL

    I agree with you 100%. I’ve had good luck with quibids in the past with gift cards to places I frequent often. My advice is to see what quibids has to offer you and decide whether or not it’s worth your time. Good luck!

    I have been a Quibids member since Nov2011. I have one 3 items, a 15 bid voucher (won in one bid), a kitchen aid food processor 189.00 value (won in one bid)and a Kahlor(?)79.00 value food processor (won in one bid) I had super fast delivery in less than 2 weeks for each of the food processors. I am careful, I watch WAY WAY more than I bid and as you can see Ive done pretty well I think. Im not even going to attempt to bid on the electronics. I am content to win the under 200.00 items! I watch thru out the day and bid at different times sometimes not at all. As with anything with risk people just use your sense! If you play like a mad man prepare to lose like one as well! I will continue to play it safe and am having fun in the process. Out of my initial 100 bids I have won the 15 more plus the free ones they give off and on for a total of 129 bids. Won the above items and have tried my luck at a few more unsuccessfully but still have 55 bids. So I will take mt 55 remaining bids and continue to have fun playing safe and sensible!!

    I just joined em and in 3 hours worth of time I recouped my investment of $60 (yeah it charges you tight away—I thought maybe I was registering first, but I did research site FAQ and I can get a refund from them and since they have a geat BBB rating I decide to check out how things work. I am pleased with site and have saved some money I got a $15 walmart gift card total cost for bids and processing was $4.50 and i got a FM griffin car bluetooth transmitter for $10.60 total cost as well as afew other smaller items, so after 3 hrs I spent a total of $84 and received about $92 worth of stuff—satisfied customer. There are games on the site you can play to win bids–you do have to bid on game plays–read up on this first but I think its a good way to have fun and win some bids ex. wack a mole game I won 64 bids on and had fun. Anyway review the site and the FAQ before giving them your CC info and you should be happy

    Um… you spent $84 and got $92 worth of stuff in 3 hours. So you saved $6 with 3 hours of your time invested.. that’s $2 per hour. And that’s winning? Not in my book.

    If you’re going to prepay bids and spend time hunting items and bidding for them, you better be saving more than a paltry $2 an hour. That is ridiculous.

    Just want service says:

    March 21st, 2012 at 1:20 am

    I decided to try it out. Read all the tricks and then started bidding. I won about 5 department store vouchers.

    Then my account was locked without warning. They wanted me to scan Id such as a license plus a bank statement saying that I had possibly breached an item in the terms and conditions but didn’t tell me which one.

    In the end I caved because I had already invested about $110 and I wanted my vouchers!

    I wanted them to tell me what I had done to breach the terms and conditions. They said sent a stock standard email addressing none of my questions and reactivated my account.

    After 14 days of winning actions, I received only half of my vouchers that I won. I wrote to them after another week and they said that the vouchers were sent back from my workplace (very strange because the first lot was accepted). Also, why didn’t they let me know that they were rejected from my workplace? I received two more vouchers in the mail and still waiting for a third (three weeks after my query) So it took me almost 2 months from winning the items before I received them and I still don’t have some.

    I can’t wait to get the final voucher and close my account. The worst service I have ever experienced. It’s a shame because I would have recommended them if they didn’t have such poor service.

    Also, the amount for postage and handling is a scam when they post items together.

    I tried it out, and like you I wasn’t tempted to click just for the urge of it. It is a scam because you have the clock down to 10 seconds left, and the screen keeps announcing last 5 minutes to bid and yet, 30minutes goes by and you’re still bidding and the pool of people keeps increasing. Mean while the quibids is making money per click. WASTE OF TIME AND OF MONEY!

    I haven’t ever created an account with Qbids but if you look at their “sign up” page and it shows you the “auctions” that are currently running…..hit the refresh page key a couple times and if you watch a single item you will notice the price changes up and down with every refresh and if you watch the supposed bidders names came across it is the same names in the exact same order……SCAM SCAM SCAM!!!!!!!!!!

    After watching a commercial I decided to create an account. I won a few gift cards but I noticed that when I am not logged in there were many more auctions available (several with no bidders or with one bidders) that were not available once I was logged in the system.

    To verify, I cleaned the cookies in my IE and viewed all ending auctions. Then in another window I opened Mozilla and logged in. I copied several ending auctions from the IE window to the Mozilla window. When you go to bid it says unavailable!!!!!

    So what this site is doing is to let you win a few items to lure you in and then they don’t make all auctions available but only a few with high traffic so that you keep bidding.

    I have not found the above procedure listed in their website, so I am sure they are violating some law. Someone is ought to close them down at least for misrepresentation of the bidding procedure.

    AVOID this site!!! I haven’t visited any other penny auction sites but I am sure they do something similar if not the same.

    Absolutely true, total rip off. You pay a dollar to bid a penny? Then you never win anything because it’s all rigged and they take your money with impunity and don’t care what affect it has on you. These are evil people and thieves. AVOID QuiBids completely or lose big time. You won’t gain anything, that’s for sure. If you want a legitimate auction stick with eBay.
