Fewer Competitors On NEW Penny Auction Site – Comes with Guarantee

Bid-Ninja users can’t seem to get enough of this new penny auction site. Although Bid-Ninja doesn’t currently support this site (our current supported sites are DealDash, QuiBids, and MadBid UK), the response has been so overwhelming that we are considering including this site in a future software update. Please continue to provide us with your valuable feedback and let us know if you’d like us to begin supporting this penny auction site in a future version of Bid-Ninja.

We’re pretty excited to tell you about this site because, like you, we love penny auctions and the opportunity to get a great deal! Not only are there great deals to be had, the products being auctioned are name brands such as Amazon, Samsung, Coleman, Omaha Steaks, Bushnell, Panera, and many more.

This brand new site offers both – has fewer competitors so there aren’t thousands of power bidders to compete against (yet)! As history shows us, the first year of a new penny auction’s existence is when many great deals can be had.

They’re offering a guaranteed first win with bids from your first bid pack purchase and all auctions always refund all bids used by the winning bidder. That’s right, if you win an auction (not just your first auction, but all auctions), you get all the bids you used to win that auction credited back to your account!

We at Bid-Ninja have spoken personally with the owners of this site, have personally used the site, and can unequivocally vouch for its legitimacy.

 

QuiBids Reviews are Plentiful, But if You Want a Real Review with Real Info, Look Here

There are a lot of new people looking for a review of QuiBids as they are on the upswing with a ton of growth and new users arriving daily.  The public penny auction stats Bid-Ninja shows for QuiBids (along with the other biggest names in penny auctions) has seen a tremendous amount of new incoming data.  Our leaderboard is constantly changing and there are so many auctions with new names showing as the winner.  Compare this to QuiBids where it seems that there are just a handful of the same winners lately and the choice of where to spend your money on bids is clear.

With this huge influx of bidders and new interest, a lot of people are looking for a review of QuiBids because they want to be sure that it’s not a scam and/or if they’ll actually be able to win some of the auctions for the low prices they see in the advertisements for QuiBids like the one below.

We here at Bid-Ninja pride ourselves on being able to help the penny auction players of the world win more auctions by bringing the best information to them (and we’ve been doing so for years).  There is no site or person out there with more data on penny auctions than us, and we can tell you unequivocally that QuiBids is one of the very best sites to play on and you really can win auctions for name brand goods & electronics for pennies on the dollar…but don’t expect it to happen every time and without a little practice.

We are constantly getting tickets & emails from new users asking us if QuiBids (along with QuiBids, MadBid, the now defunct Beezid, etc) are legitimate.  They of course are, however there are a few things you need to make sure you don’t do if you’re a newcomer to the “penny auction” scene, such as:

  • Think You’ll Win Every Time

    While playing on QuiBids is fun and exciting (as it should be), you have to be prepared to lose some auctions…but that’s part of the fun too!  Don’t let a loss make you think you can’t win or that it’s some kind of elaborate setup.

  • Bid On Too Many Auctions with Too Few Bids

    A lot of people make the mistake of placing one or two bids on one auction, don’t win and then instead of sticking it out on that auction bounce over to another auction, place one or two bids without winning and then once again run off to another…and continue to repeat this cycle.  This is effectively giving away your bids.  To win on QuiBids or any of the other penny auction sites, you’ll need to stick it out for the long haul.  Part of winning means showing your opponents that you’re not going to give up!

  • This isn’t just a shameless plug for Bid-Ninja…you really do need to know who you’re playing against and what type of bidder they are.  If you’re in an auction against 10 people who have all won a thousand auctions each and you just showed up to place that first shiny bid of yours, you can bet your bottom dollar (or penny) that they know that and they’re going to be trying to intimidate you.  If you’re just starting out make sure you know who you’re playing against and try to pick appropriate auctions.

  • Lose an Auction and Quit

    We see this constantly…people arrive at QuiBids, buy the smallest available bid pack, pick an auction and bid their heart out and lose…then quit QuiBids and penny auction playing altogether.  If that’s all your budget allows for doing, then it’s probably best to keep on moving.  Winning is a numbers game and you’ll absolutely have to play on multiple auctions to not only get the hang of it, but to win an auction.  Losing one single auction and then quitting altogether doesn’t make QuiBids or any other site a scam, you simply didn’t play enough!

QuiBids Wall of Auctions

So yes, our “review” of QuiBids is really simple…they are one of the top notch penny auction sites to play on.  They have a huge selection, a very loyal following of users, great customer service, fast delivery and so on.  There isn’t really anything negative we have to say about them.  Most of the “bad reviews” you’ll find for QuiBids have to do with users who were making one of the mistakes in our list above.  Bid-Ninja wouldn’t have all of the data we do for them if there weren’t thousands of very happy customers winning great merchandise for low prices every single day.

Is QuiBids a Scam? Definitely Not

Heard QuiBids is a Scam? It’s a Lie!

Are you a fan of online auctions? Have you ever wanted to sell your unwanted items in an easy way to make a little extra cash? Or maybe you’ve wanted to buy something rare for less money than you’d pay retail? No matter what the motivation is, online auctions have a distinct advantage in this area. You can watch auctions or bid immediately, making it easy to buy or sell your favorite products in an instant.

What is QuiBids.com?

Is QuiBids a Scam?  Definitely NotOne of the most popular online auction sites is Quibids.com. Using QuiBids as your auction site, you can check bids in real time to see what catches your interest. The QuiBids model is simple: When you log on and place a bid, the site adds 10-20 seconds to the auction’s timer to give someone else the the cahnce to to bid on the item for sale. This continues until the maximum bid reaches zero seconds on the timer, and the item is awarded to the top bidder. This model is much more interactive than other online auction sites and is often cited as reminiscent of the “going once, going twice, sold!” approach of traditional auctions. With such an exciting interface and fast-paced approach, you may be surprised to year that there is talk of QuiBids.com being a scam site. However, there are many benefits to using an online auction site like QuiBids.com, which we’ll outline in this article. This should offer plenty of proof that the QuiBids scam is a lie – you can enjoy bidding in a safe environment with confidence.

The QuiBids Model

Part of the reason that people are apt to think that the QuiBids scam is real is that their auctions work differently than auctions do on sites like eBay. Because QuiBids strives to bring that real auction feel to online bidding, some features of the site may seem a little off at first glance. First of all, before you start bidding, you must sign up. Then you must purchase bids. Each bid costs only $0.60. Then, when you find an auction you’d like to place a bid on, QuiBids deducts one bidding credit from your account and adds time to the clock to allow other bidders a chance. You also have the option to buy out the item that is up for auction, similar to other online auction sites. The difference with QuiBids.com is that even if you don’t win the auction, you can still choose to buy the product at a discount with this feature. You will never, ever have to pay more than retail price for any of the products listed on the QuiBids site. However, you must note that not everyone will win the auction at a huge discount. Sometimes, you just get the product for a few dollars under retail – but even then, you still save a few dollars!

Why Does QuiBids Cost Money in the First Place?

Many people find it odd that QuiBids charges money before you can begin bidding, which leads them to think that QuiBids is a scam. However, this is only because the site needs a placeholder for the funds. Think about it: If you bid on an item but never intend to pay it, you waste everyone’s time. The seller will be furious that they waited for their item to sell for nothing and will have to relist it; the site loses money hosting an auction that will never be paid for; and you lose out on getting your item if someone else wins and never pays. By having their customers purchase bids, QuiBids can ensure that real cash backs the auctions. This way, everyone gets their payment or item without hassle. It’s easy to think that if you lose an auction, the site has just stolen your money. In fact, with your option to “buy now” at less than retail value, you can still receive the item at a discount using your existing bid plus paying the difference. Either way, you end up with the item you want for less than you’d pay in a store. You can even spend money on bid vouchers to keep bids lined up for when you’re away from the computer. Using their automated queue for bids, you can autobid even when you’re not around! So as you can see, there’s no way you can think that this aspect of QuiBids is a scam once you understand how it works.

Should You Sign up at QuiBids.com?

QuiBids is an addictive site. It’s fun, fast-paced, and offers you a chance to buy things for less than retail price. Because it imitates the high-energy setting of a real auction, it requires a slightly different business model. This business model is based on pre-paid bids, but that doesn’t mean that QuiBids.com is a scam. All it means is that you have bids that you can spend anywhere on the site for a chance at winning an item at less than retail value. If you win the item when the timer reaches zero, you’ll see that you’ve paid only pennies on the dollar for your item. If you lose the bid and choose the “buy now” option, you can still compare prices with online retailers to see if you’re paying less than you would in a store – and there’s a good chance you are. It can be difficult to win an auction on QuiBids.com because of the sheer number of users eager to find great deals. By utilizing a few tips and tricks (which QuiBids details on their site) you can greatly improve your chances of winning the auctions you have your eye on. Bidding can be fun, and it most certainly is not impossible to win an item if you play your cards right. So if you’re interested in a fun, fast-paced online auction site, give QuiBids.com a try. Many people have found great deals using the site and feel that their time and money was well spent. If you give QuiBids.com a chance, you might just be one of them, too!

  • An “Active Auctions” stats page (this linked to page won’t link to an “active auction” for long, since once the auction ends, the page type changes) – An “active auction” page shows you a ton of information from the latest bidders, how many total bidders there are, the current price, when it started, the bidders in the last 5 minutes, how long the auction has been running, historic prices for the product in the auction, how the prices are trending and much more

We’re excited to announce that you now have a “direct line” of communication to the Development Team, Staff & Owners of Bid-Ninja!  (video demonstration below)

We want to make absolutely sure that every user has an excellent experience using Bid-Ninja. The thing is that we know that when you’re playing in an auction, that it isn’t always possible to “step away from the action” to report a problem…which means that some problems either go unreported, or reported later after relevant information has been forgotten.

So what we’ve done to make sure that any & all wrinkles (if any) are ironed out, is incorporated this new “trouble report” button within the Bid-Ninja software.

It allows you to report a problem without even having to leave the auction you’re playing in! In addition, it provides to us the valuable information we need about the auction you’re in, like a link to it, your browser type, your username and so on.

So we hope you utilize this new feature to make sure that you have a 100% positive experience while using Bid-Ninja to win more auctions!  Check out the video below to see how you can utilize this new feature:
