Started in July 2009, 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.
You can win all sorts of popular products at incredibly low prices. Look at our homepage to see what products are up for auction right now, and if one catches your eye, buy some bids for a low price! When you place a bid, we add a maximum of 10-20 seconds to the timer – to give someone else the chance to bid if they’re interested. This is similar to the “Going Once…Twice…SOLD” approach of auctions.
How does QuiBids work?
Bids cost just $0.60 and can be purchased in bid packs at the Bid Store or in the QBar. These bids are pre-paid and stored in the Bid Credit History section of My QuiBids. Each time you place a bid; it will be deducted from your remaining bids, and will increase the price of the auction by one cent. . No more than 20 seconds is added to the timer whenever a bid is placed. This allows another user the opportunity to bid if interested. It’s just like the auctioneer shouting “Going once…Going twice…SOLD!” at a traditional auction.
And also just like a traditional auction, you win by being the last to bid. Once you pay the final auction price and shipping costs, the item is yours!
What others are saying about Quibids
They absolutely do not advise you that there is a $60.00 fee, and when the time is up on your bid, they add more time. This is a total scam and rip off. I called regarding the $87.00 that I was unaware of and on top of what I was bidding on that I could have bought for less than $20.00 anywhere. I went to their website and there is nothing stating there is a $60.00 fee. Of course I never received a call back. I will be contacting the consumer protection agency also and whoever I can to stop this kind of false and misleading company. Perhaps there needs to be a class action suit started against them.
Looks like Quibids is using Bots to keep auctions alive…. I was about to bid on some cigars when I noticed the same users/avatars bidding on the same item. No other bidders were bidding except for users “PJADB1953” and “PJADB1954”. You can see by the attached photo what I am referring to. I called customer service to complain, and they basically laughed at me. I have seen Bots on other penny… Read more ›
I just joined. I waited a few days when I had some extra time to actually see the website. I click on & there’s some nice stuff, but I don’t order anything. My credit card bill comes in with $ 60.00 for QuiBids. I was astonished & got right on the phone. Customer Serrvice handled a refund notice to me by e-mail, without any questions. But, be very careful on this site. Hiitting any button once signed in, charges you.
It’s much better to stick to a traditional auction site like eBay, instead of spending lots of frustrating time and effort on penny auction websites like QuiBids.com.
