QuiBids Review – Is QuiBids Legit?

First time here? Discover where education meets opportunity... Click Here!

Before this QuiBids review goes into the details of how the website works, it is important to understand the principle behind penny auction websites. The QuiBids.com is one of the most popular sites in this niche. Penny auction websites offer products that are rather costly when bought at full retail prices, for a fraction of their retail cost. For example, an electronic gadget like the latest iPad would normally retail at a starting price of $500. As a winner on QuiBids, you may be able to win it for $20.

However, members of the auction website are allowed to only bid for a single penny at a time during the auction. What really draws people to these websites is the fact that the final buyer gets the product at a price way lower than they would have got it off the counter.

QuiBids review: How the website works

The first step is to sign up so you can have an account on the website, for all your transactions. In order to participate in any auction, you will have to buy bids, each of which costs $0.60. You will then proceed to choose the product you intend to bid on. There are hundreds of these products ranging from simple electronics to the high-tech products such as the Ultimate Apple Macbook. Bidding is as simple as clicking on the “Bid” button of the product you choose. If you are the last bidder of a given product, you win it.

So, is QuiBids legit?

In short, they are absolutely legit and very stable. Nevertheless, it’s still quite difficult to win. Here are the important highlights of this QuiBids review to help you make this determination as well. When you sign up, you will pay for a pack of bids before you start placing your bids on the items listed on the website. The QuiBids platform is designed to treat each bidder fairly and with equal opportunity.

QuiBids has been in operation for a long time and is recognized by the law as legit. If you have seen their commercials, you will notice they are well established and attract many customers. Quibids is currently the largest penny auction website in the US and has a rapidly growing attraction.

QuiBids review in summary

QuiBids is the biggest penny auction company around. If you follow their own careful training instructions, you have equal opportunity to win items for cheap. There is usually heavy competition, but if you are patient and learn good bidding strategies, you can succeed. The website deals in real products and there are thousands of real winners every day. The combination of savvy bidding and a little luck on the bidding process will allow you to walk away with the winning bid on an item that is far more expensive in traditional stores.

We recommend spending time searching the internet for the products you want and comparing prices. You will save time – and time is money. QuiBids may be legit, but penny auctions are a tough game which causes the majority of shoppers more frustration than they bargained for.

    Completely CROOKED. I read all the rules and understood well the concept and structure. Yet, the site is a rip-off, crooked, theiving site.

    I witnessed many auctions where I waited for the ‘price’ to rise before jumping in and they ended at pennies. The ones where I decided to participate wound up setting new records for astoundingly high closing prices. Someone out there was bidding with hundreds of 60-cent bids to win items worth ten or twenty dollars. And this happened consistently.

    When I was participating in an auction this morning each time I entered a bid the countdown clock was reset to 10 seconds. Then, all of a sudden, the “Bid-O-Matic” I was bidding against entered a bid one penny higher than mine and the auction ended immediately. Complete, open, obvious robbery. A crooked site.

    I have been fortunate to have won several items and gift cards from the site – Panasonic lumix camera for $0.08, Quisinart 10 piece cookware set for $0.35, Panasonic razor for $0.34, a dozen Callaway golf balls for $0.02, over $700.00 in Walmart gift cards for approx $325 and now nearing $1200 in Home Depot gift cards for approx $500 (best win was a $50 card for $0.02) – and yes, I’ve had to use the buy it now feature on some because I didn’t win the auction.

    I’ve been away from the site for a little while and recently stared bidding again – it’s gotten harder because of something they’re now doing differently… When I first started on the site, if you saw an item you wanted to try to win you joined that specific auction and you bid against everyone else that wanted that same item.

    NOW, they’ve found a way to get people who are interested in any one of maybe 30 items (in the same sort of price range) to bid against each other but in the end, only award one of the items. Let me see if I can explain better – I might want to bid on a Lumix camera that shows a value price of $359… So I join that auction. Another person might want to bid on a totally different item like a taylormade golf club with a similar value and then yet another person might want to bid on a television again with a similar value – in the past, these were three very separate auctions and you only bid against others that wanted that same item – maybe each of those items attracted 6 or 7 or 10 bidders – the auction starts and ends and that item is won. With their new twist, you might have as many as 30 items all in the same price range being bid on by several people per item BUT in the end, only the winner of that auction gets to win their item. The people bidding on the camera or other item lost their bids (money) because in the end, the person bidding on the television won. Very sneaky… Get several dozen or even hundred people to all bid within the same auction, while each of them think that they’re all bidding on the same item when in fact they are not. This new set up ends up driving up the total number of bids per auction while only 1 of the 30 items will end being awarded to the last man standing – I say again… Very sneaky!

    Read the info Quibids has on-line. They tell you up front that winning a high price item probably will not go for pennies. Yes it does happen on rare occasions. They tell you that up front. They are up front with the 1 bid = 60 cents. They even tell you some of the best times to get in on an auction. Quibids even tells you to start with some of the smaller items until you get the hang of how it works. I guess most people don’t do their respective research on what they are doing.

    Some auctions last a few minutes. These are usually the gift cards and small bid packs. Some auctions last for many hours. At 60 cents a bid it takes a long time to climb to the final auction price. But, armed with 100 bids you probably figure you can knock anyone out of the water and take home the grand prize at a real steal.

    Say the product has a retail value of a $600. As soon as the auction opens you, start bidding. You’ve placed 5 bids. So far you have spent $3.00, (5 bids x .6). Did you catch that? Hey, no worries you still have a lot of 60 cent bids to go. But you already forgot that each time you bid you’re spending 60 cents that you will not get back. You do have 95 bids left – at 60 cents a pop.

    Oh, that’s a bad thing right? Unfair? NO! Had you read the rules, FAQ’s and the other info provided you would know that. So let me ask a question. Do you honestly believe that you’re going to pick up a $600 item for $60 (100 bids)? You started bidding at the very start of the auction – remember? Before you know it, you’re out of 60 cent bids and the price keeps climbing. Yup, you’re upset at not getting a $600 item for $60.

    There had been 400 bids placed and the item actually sold at $240 (400 x .6). It probably took about 5 or 6 hours for the darn auction to end. So a $600 product went for $240. That is still a good deal. But you thought that with 100 bids you could easily beat anyone. However, you blew your 100 bids ($60) a long time ago when the auction first started.

    In the meantime not all those bids were placed by one person. So yeah, those numerous people that bid and lost – lost their money. Quibids raked in a great deal of money with all the bidders that lost or quit bidding. So what? This is, after all, is a profit based society.

    You should only be concerned with what’s coming out of your pocket – at least in my way of thinking. So then, how do you win? Do your research. Watch what that product has gone for before. Figure out your strategy. I swoop in.

    I wait until I see that the auction may end soon because I know what the final bids were before. That’s called straddling. Be warned, what sold for 25 bids at 2 a.m. may go significantly higher later in the evening when folks are home from work and what-not. Don’t forget the time difference between east and west coast.

    Penny auctions are definitely not for the faint of heart. I looked at several different auction sites and compared their final bids to what Quibids had. There really wasn’t much of a difference between final costs between sites. Again, research, read, and learn what you’re doing. EBay is pretty much the same way. You bid until you win. But I can almost guarantee that a $600 new item will not sell for $240.

    SO true that is why I joined Pricebender. They don’t force me to maintain monthly bid packs I have four ways to earn free bids quickly and cash drawing prizes and new members receive a gift card to redeem in the store. Bids are $0.29 compared to $0.60

    Just because people lose money blindly bidding on countless items doesn’t mean it is a scam! I am not an employee nor have I ever used this site. This is a business we are talking about correct? Alright any business is going to make a profit. Walmart sells you a product that they spent much less to buy and makes a profit off of that item as does each and every other business. I would actually like you to form a business that is only out to give away free items and I will gladly sit back and watch you crumble. Now if my English wasn’t completely legible or correct I do apologize. Stop bashing a site because you gambled and lost. Open your simple little mind up to the business world and get educated

    I agree. It’s a brilliant business strategy, because they are making so much money off of every auction. But, I don’t think it’s sustainable. People will soon realize that they’re being ripped off and stop using the site. If you’re an investor, get in and get out.

    Quibids is masked gambling. It runs under an “auction” business but people can see right through this. Too bad law enforcement can’t. I would be devastated to learn I spent a hundred dollars in bids & got nothing to show for it. Stick to Ebay. It’s the greatest “real” online auction. No scams. I’ve been using Ebay for years now & love it. If you bid & lose.. you don’t lose money. If you bid & win,, well, you obviously win something. But Quibids will take your money, give you nothing, & tell you play better next time. You can win an Ipad on ebay for 100, 200 bucks. The same item on Quibids will sell for $4.00 but a hundred people lost $100.00 in bids. 100 people pay for something, but only 1 person gets it. That about sums up the scam that is Quibids.

    Quibids actually manipulates the auctions.
    Let me tell you what I am getting at. I was a Quibids user until yesterday. I had been noticing that there were fewer and fewer auctions for me to participate in. I went to a different computer and browsed the site anonymously through a proxy. I saw MANY auctions that were open and active. When I tried to participate in them with my account, it said “unavailable”. My “wins” had inexplicable dropped to 0% in the past 6 weeks. The auctions that I was bidding on had bidders that had spent as much or more than 1,600 voucher bids in their previous 3 games with winnings of about $125. This seemed pretty suspicious to me. I assumed that the other “participants” had been issued unlimited bids. After all, who would go to the trouble to accumulate 1,600 voucher bids only to throw them away on 2 gift cards and a limit buster unless the vouchers didn’t cost them anything? I had begun to wonder if the other players were actually real bidders at all. I sent a note to quibids and asked about my discovery. Their email response is pasted below. I had no idea I was being funneled into auctions of Quibids choosing. They can limit your participation into whatever auctions they desire. Lets say you have a LOT of voucher bids that were due to expire. You, along with others bidders in that predicament could be banished to the same auction. This would get rid of a lot of vouchers right away. What if they just didn’t like you and wanted to send you to “bidders hell”? They can do that. It’s completely up to them.(read their email below) The big problem is that they don’t tell you when they have sent you to this “Bidders Hell”. You just discover it after you’ve gone 30 – 40 auctions without winning. Just for the record, I did use the “Buy Now” feature so I didn’t lose money. I just wasted a lot of time bidding in rigged auctions. I immediately cancelled my account and requested a refund of unused bids.

    Hi chris,
    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.

    How legit is this site really and who are the people that claim this site is 100% legit?
    Cheap items are not that hard to win but the big ticket items like cameras, tv, iPads and other high priced items are impossible to win.
    This is what happens every time, you spend 2 to 4 hours or even more bidding on these items and after spending 30, 50 bucks there is this one individual that appears and places 2 or 3 bids and poof,… all of a sudden my next attempt to bid creates an error message claiming something went wrong and by the time I clear the message the item was sold to this lucky mysterious 3 bid bidder. This has happened to me over 10 times and it is like clockwork, place my bids and suddenly mystery bidder walks away with the item for jus a few bids and always with some kind of glitch causing me to not be able to place a bid.
    Funny thing is though, in most cases where they show how many other people are bidding on the item as well there are 8 to 12 people bidding and they all seemed to have given up at the exact same time as me when I got the error message.

    HOW LEGIT DOES THAT SOUND TO YOU??????????

    more like $1,320. 1 cent = 60 cents $1.00 = 100 cents 1 Quickbid dollar = .6 x 100 or $60. $22 X 60 = 1,320. You were off by $20 a hole.

    It is definitely not a scam. It amazes me how long it take people to figure this out. And yes these individuals who developed this site are very sharp. This dire is one of the few places that the smarter individuals will triumph. I have not even been on the site but will give you a very valuable piece of advice. If you log in and decide to give them 60$ all you need to do is simply decide what merch you desire and then stalk it like an IPO. It will probably consume a couple of hours a month of your time but once you determine the approx. selling price for the items and the site traffic at the time it is won you could guess at what price it is be won. Just need to understand that this website is after your dollars and they are very good at procuring them.

    READ THE TERMS: They dictate which auctions you can see and which you can participate in based on your “comparable skills” decided at their sole discretion. In other words they decide who you can compete with and for which items !! So they let you win a few a beginner, then when you’re hooked, they pit you against aggresive players where it’s almost impossible to win. See reply I was given by support after complaining I could not see all the auctions in play.
    It is also in the Terms and Conditions:

    after reading reviews on this site and others i decided i would spend the $60.00 to see if i could purchase a few gift cards for items i would have to buy anyway, like gas… i have purchased many a gift card for $.01 (that’s $.61 in real money terms!)… and of course a little more money… and have more than recovered my costs. so my input from my experience, limited to the gift card department, is that you can definitely save money on this site if you keep track of your bids and cave to buying the occasional gift card for full price (but again if you need gas or items from CVS anyway that’s not really a loss). i am sure you could lose your shirt on this site not keeping track of your bids and buying big items you didn’t really need or intend to buy anyway. the BIGGEST issue i have with this site is the LIFE HOURS you lose. because of the time reset an auction on a $25.00 gift card can take FOREVER… and your very best bet is to enter auctions when several gift cards for the same item have been released at the same time… you have to be hanging around to see that happen… you can save money here the same way you can save money extreme couponing… with an investment of time! you are not getting anything for free on this site because at the very least you are trading your money for your precious life hours… i will continue to use this site but only intermittently when i have absolutely nothing better to do for a few hours!!!

    Folks, the site isn’t a scam just because you spent $60 and didn’t win an auction. I was curious about Quibids,so I took a look at the website. I have not officially signed up yet because I have been reading review pages like this one. It seems very clear to me what the terms are. They tell you up front that you have to purchase bids, and each bid is $.60. Basically, you are paying $.60 for the opportunity to bid on/win an item for a HUGE discount. One winning bid on a high value item would make 99 losing bids worth it. This is about opportunity cost. It seems to me that most of the negative reviews are from people who are upset because they lost their money simply because they didn’t understand the nuances of the bidding process and the fact that there is a lot of LUCK involved with this. Despite the negative feedback I have seen, I think I’m still going to give it a try. As other people have stated, this is a GAMBLE. Nowhere on the website does it say that you are guaranteed to win anything. This is about the opportunity to get an incredible deal and your ability to compete with other bidders. Someone wins every auction, every time. Just because the winner wasn’t you, doesn’t mean that the site is a scam. It probably just means that you suck at bidding and this type of site isn’t for you. Like I said, I haven’t even used Quibids yet, nor do I work for them, but with a bare minimum amount of research I have been able to ascertain what the site is about and how it works. Of course they are trying to make money. It’s a business, and a pretty clever one at that. Some people seem to be under the impression that you pay $60 and it starts raining $20 iPads and HD televisions. Don’t let the prospect of these “to good to be true” deals cloud your judgement. Other people have to lose in order for you to win. That’s just the nature of the beast. I’m totally impartial. I don’t care if people love Quibids or hate it. Just like most things in life, the devil is in the details. Make sure you are fully informed and understand what you are doing before you opt to shell out money for anything. I’m posting this because I feel that it is wrong for people to call something a scam when it is really their own lack of understanding that has caused them to “lose money”. If you won something and didn’t receive it or you purchased bids that weren’t credited, that’s another story. Other than than that, people have no right to complain when all the terms of use have been clearly spelled out.

    I’ve used these site before with no problem. it seems to me that the people on this site complaining just don’t understand how to use the auction or jumped in without doing their homework. I routinely win gift cards at a fraction of face value. example $50 restaurant card won for $10. I bed less than 10 times to win. You just have to be careful and be patient before you start bidding. Obviously if you jumpt in and start bidding right away you’ll lose your money. Let other people bid the item up and jump in at the last minute.

    I got my $50 gift card for $10. I don’t care what the house made. My only complaint is that you are limited on how many auctions you can win per day. What people are not telling you here and perhaps it’s because they didn’t do their homework is there are free bid auctions where you are not charged to bid and you can by bid on voucher bid aucions. A voucher bid auction is when you bid on a bid package. So, you can purchas bid for much less than .60 each. I routinely win voucher bids for around .08 each so I’m never paying .60 per bid.

    I have been reading a lot of reviews and I’ve noticed that people who haven’t won are less inclined to wright a positive review as opposed to the people who have my opinion is that if you have a gambling problem then don’t sign up if you like taking risks and have a few bucks to spare go right ahead do what you think is right not what outhers think is right and if you fail you have only yourself to blame and don’t blame outher people for your mistakes

    After doing a fair amount of research on this company when deciding whether or not to try it out I found that this is a company that offers on those that want things fast & cheap or that like the thrill of “gambling”. There is nothing in their explanations or rules that they do not adhere to. But they are not a scam. They have found all the laws that have a grey areas around them or they take advantage of some loophole in the rules due to the fact that our court systems/consumer protection laws have not caught up completely with what came be accomplished online.
    Because they use these loopholes and whatnot they definitely
    seem like they are a scam, especially to those that lose money with no winnings, but, alas, they are not a scam, they are legit. The reason you see them disappear and come back is because someone will sue them and they get frozen during the trial but they always come back which means the outcome of the trial is that they were acquitted. Found to have not broken any laws.
    They do this through loopholes in the laws and language of the business world. Their ads use what they call “ad-speak”, they promise something awesome, while hiding the downside, and we are so drawn in to what we want to “win” for pennies we don’t read all the rules, research, etc. and as a result we are separated from our money very quickly.
    The auctions do mostly end with 75% or more off the item price, e what they don’t ad on tv is that you need to bid with their currency, which you have to buy from them. It is not illegal to omit something about your business on tv. And the item did end for pennies on the dollar. That is not a lie. Having to buy their currency to bid on an item is separate from the actual auction and therefore has no bearing on the auction price.
    There are many situations like this where people feel mislead or like they were duped. They kinda were but it was not illegal. If you are unfamiliar with this type of penny auction you need to fully read all the rules & requirements very carefully. And watch the other auctions carefully. They also offer strategies & tutorials when you sign up. Study all of those things and use them to your advantage. Like any other business, they need to keep a lasting clientele, they are not overtly scamming. Most people don’t understand the simple nuances that keep this business legal, like saying “registering” is means you are signing up for an account which they are charging your credit card. They allow us to infer ourselves as to what it means. That is not illegal. Anytime you enter your full credit card information into a website, especially when signing up for a membership, you should expect that they will charge your card as soon as you click on “submit” or “complete”. The cost of membership to this site is their $60 package, and they are NOT legally required to show you a review page so as soon as you submit your info you are charged, but you get what they said you would with this package so they are not in the wrong.
    They don’t make any offers or promises that they don’t keep. They are only offering you a CHANCE! If you didn’t make sure you totally understood before handing over your credit card then that is totally on you.
    They use phrases that make you assume certain things, they are a little sneaky, they can be vague sometimes, they will use loopholes and so on. But none of that stuff is illegal. So therefore they are legit and not a scam. They can’t “take” your money without you giving your credit card and if you hand that information over, to anyone, before you fully understand how it all works then the mistake lies with you.
    Do your homework, read reviews, make sure you fully understand.
    And for the record I am NOT a member or employee of quibids, I am NOT receiving any compensation for writing this and I was NOT contacted to write this, I have not signed up or have even placed 1 bid. All I did was research the company and how it is run. You don’t need to pay to get the info, it’s all out there. You just have to do some leg work.

    these weasels are weasly scam artist and this ebuisnessreview website is either fake or will write anything if the price is right. they sucked $60 OUT OF MY CREDIT CARD. I WAS NEVER ASKED AND NEVER GAVE PERMISSION. ALSO IF YOU ARE OUTBID AND DON’T WANT TO BUY THE ITEM AT THE SUGGESTED BUY NOW PRICE YOU STILL LOSE ALL THE MONEY YOU BID AND DON’T RECEIVE ANYTHING.

      Ray,
      eHomeBusinessReviews.com is completely independent. We don’t personally use or recommend QuiBids and we have provided our top rated opportunities on our site that we do recommend. However, QuiBids is not a scam. You may be disappointed because you didn’t win a bid, but this makes it more of a gamble if anything. People seem to like penny auctions because of the hope of winning a product for cheap. But if you don’t win, remember they offer you the opportunity to pay full price for the item.

    I decided to check out reviews of Quibids before I went to try out their site. After reading the reviews I am convinced that there is too much potential for something shady, if not illegal going on (such as up bidding and bots as someone mentioned). Also it seems funny to me that the most of the “positive” statements come from people denying that they work for the company and are claiming that they have been extremely successful at “winning” high ticket items. Now doesn’t it seem funny if you were really competitive and wanted to increase your odds of winning wouldn’t you want to discourage people from using the site and therefore eliminate competition….hmmm. After sifting through all these comments I have come to understand it is a gambling site, it is not regulated, and seems to have some shady and perhaps illegal practices.

    These penny auction sites have been compared to gambling casinos, the house actually rakes in more than the retail price of the item sold, despite the ridiculously low selling prices in the ads the suck in the customers. There are the lucky winners, but for every winner there are several losers with nothing to show for the non refundable bids they put in. Some participants have pointed out you can make something of your bid commitment using some buy now option.

    If you like the excitement of putting some money at risk, perhaps their $60 signup fee is safer than doing it with online poker.

    Quibids appears to be the largest of the penny auctions, by responding to customer complaints, most of which are about the $60 signup fee being overlooked, they manage to maintain a BBB (Better Business Bureau) A- rating.

    Hello – I just wanted to share my thoughts on quibids. After a month or 2 of signing up I started having a hard time to win. At first it seemed really easy winning, but then it just got really hard to break even. I started to think quibids was a scam or a trap, but I thought they had a good enough business model not to scam people. So I started doing some research on the internet and found a site called http://www.QuiBidsReport.com This site has really been a game changer for me because it tells me the average selling price of any quibids product. Also they have reports on when the best time is to bid which is based on the lowest average selling price which turns out to be a great indicator of when the lowest competition is for the particular product. These reports alone opened my eyes because I always thought the best time to bid was in the middle of the night – nope! I was wrong!! So I recommend doing your homework on the product before going to auction and bidding and you might start seeing your win ratio going up like me.

    No wonder you get “taken” so easily. You can not even do simple math. Try, “Quibids makes SIXTY dollars ($60.00) for every $1 bid” (one dollar in bids at 1 cent increments means 100 bids at 60 cents per…100 x .60= $60.00……NOT $600.00)

    Nikki is correct re the refund of the $60 signup/bid. I was reimbursed on my next CC statement after I realized I had bought a bid pack even tho I just wanted to peruse the site (my first time on Qbids). I don’t remember how soon I contacted Qbids but I had no trouble. Of course, I don’t like the fact that my bids are lost if I don’t win the “prize”, so I won’t “play the game” in the future.

    I have used Quibids and as most previous poster say, you “lose” 60 cents on every bid. Quibids makes huge profits on every item they sell, which I don’t have a problem with in the sense that it is a free market. When you bid on an item, if you invest several bids and do not win the item, be aware that you can purchase the item at retail and Quibids will apply your bids to the price. As long as you are willing to pay full price for an item you want, you do not lose any money. I have won items at big discounts, but I have also been in a position where, in order not to have thrown away my bid money, I have had to purchase the item at retail. I feel that defeats the purpose of attempting to get an item at a discount, but I did not lose out financially, as it was an item I would purchase anyway, I was just looking for a discount. You win some, you lose some; you just need to be aware of what it is that you are getting into. It was fun to do, and I did get a few items at huge discounts, but it needs to be a game in your mind. Quibids is not a scam, but it is not for everyone. If you go in thinking you are going to get an ipad for pennies, you do not have realistic expectations.

    I have been playing with quibids and finally won a 999 dollar camera. That was the same price on Amazon.
    I spend 5 hours and bid 800 dollars so the 56 dollars that they advertise the camera sold for was really 856 plus shipping..

    What I am upset about is that they charged sales tax for the total sale. First I live in a state that does not have internet sales tax. Quibids is located in Oklahoma City. Their explanation was that they have servers in my state. I checked with state and they have no business listed nor do they have any income tax for employees under Quibids. They have referred me to the attorney generals office to file a complaint.

    So if you want to win an IPAD or anything of value plan on spending time, paying excessive shipping fees, and sales tax that is not legal.

    If anyone else has paid sales tax please post it and what state. This is illegal to charge a fee and called it a Tax is the Tax is not actually paid to the state.

    Most of the auctions I watched people who won played for a long time and paid 60-90% of the item cost in bids and shipping. Plus a Sales tax that if is not in Oklahoma is not proper.

    Shut them down. I have written several media outlets to do a consumer story on this business. I believe that gambling is another vice that is hurting so many people and here you have a site that advertised my with as buying a Sony a65 camera listed for 999 and they say I paid only 56 dollars when in reality I paid 890 including shipping and sales tax in Georgia…..not Oklahoma

    of course QuiBids is legit, or else how the hack can it issue those products. Do you guys seriously think US government or Canadian government are that stupid? or BBB is being fooled? Use some common sense guys. Quibid is not saying there’s ZERO risk. Of course, if you did not win the auction, you might lose few dollars. Even if you win the auction, you still gotta pay taxes, shipping charge. However, Quibid does offer “Buy out” option, which makes it a great safety net when playing the auction. In fact, most of the time, you do save some money if you have intention to buy the product.

    Also what is great about zeekler is that you can make money on it too through zeek rewards. It’s no scam or anything I’ve been doing it for a while now and am making great money daily ! A guy I’m friend with is making 20k a week and has only been doing this for 9 months!

    It’s NOT a scam.

    Some people (namely most people commenting on this review) are simply upset that they were stupid enough to lose money.

    The website is legitimate. They don’t make you do anything you don’t agree to do. They don’t steal your money. YOU spend it. YOU agree to how they work before you even sign up. It’s YOUR responsibility to be an informed consumer and know what you’re getting into. Do a little research. Every single time you invest money or spend money or sign up for something, you, as a consumer, should research that first. Personal finance 101, kids.

    Is this a smart way to spend money? Absolutely not. This website is a sure-fire way for many people to lose money (unless you’re smart enough to understand how these websites’ algorithms actually work and play it). You’re bound to lose bids. You will get caught up in bidding wars and want to fuel that adrenaline rush.

    But that doesn’t make the website a scam. I think people simply love demonizing things that don’t work out to their advantage. Which is disgusting. It’s not the website’s fault that you were ignorant and didn’t research or real all disclosure documents first.

    End of story.

    You know, there are people who keep saying its a scam….probably because they lost money because they were looking to get a 2000 dollar TV for 10 bucks.

    But that’s not the way it works. Basically, you shouldn’t bid on any item you are not willing to pay retail for. If an item retails for 60 dollars, be prepared by having 100 bids to use. Wait, you say, 100 bids is 60 bucks! Exactly!!

    When the auction starts, you should be patient and bid sparingly. If its your lucky day, you will outlast all the other bidders and win. The number of bids it takes to win is pure luck. You might go through all your bids. Then you pay 60 for a 60 card. but if all the other bidders drop out (mostly because they are looking to get a 60 dollar card for a dollar) before you use your 100 bids, you get quite the deal.

    I won an iPad about a year ago, and I just won a 40 inch TV. both times I made sure I had enough bids to see it through. Both times I was prepared to pay full retail. Both times I outlasted the idiots who complain its a scam, and got the iPad for 190 bucks, and a 600 retail TV for 200. I’ve also picked up Walmart cards….some I paid for in full, and some, I got for pennies. Either way you really can’t lose. Plus, it’s sorta fun when you know you are backed up with enough bids to cover yourself.

    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 offcourse assuming the bidders are all genuine customers and you are not bidding against QuiBids computers participating as bidders.

    I had the opportunity to invest in QuiBids just before it went on line. It was offered as “the latest craze in Europe, taking the continent by storm, way bigger than eBay will ever be” blah blah blah. I passed. A good friend did invest. He isn’t making bank interest on his investment (and we all know how bad that is) and he can’t get rid of it. People are investigating and passing. Yes, it’s a gambling site wearing “penny auction” clothing. It’s closer to a lottery, when all is said and done. The major shareholders make money and a few “winners” get stuff cheap. Everybody else can whistle. Like the man sez, if it sounds too good to be true, it almost always is.

    I finally decided to write a review. I was a member of quibids last year. I spent over 600 dollars buying bids; and I used the tips that people write about to increase your chance of winning an auction. I bid on items from 12am to 5am. I bid on items where there were on 5 or less bidders. I bid on popular items and unpopular items. I waited to start bidding in an auction where the amount of the item was close to the amount of the same item in a previous auction. I also bid on getting extra bids. I had mostly bid conservatively on auctions too. Of 600 dollars worth of bids, the only thing I won was a binoculars that were valued at 76-79 dollars for the amount of 8 dollars. I decided that it would be costly for me to become an expert bidder or maybe I should say gambler on quibids, obviously the learning curve to win big ticket items would be far beyond 600 dollars. No savings here. I am better off going to a Macys, Dillards or any other store and wait for a 75% discount sale.

    Hey jokester, you call “sen” an idiot, Quibids a joke….so what should we call your math skills? Fail is the first to come to mind. Per your example, someone places 100 bids at .60/bid to finally win the “prize” for $50. Your math to describe this is such: 50 times 100 times .60= 3000. Now that is true but is unrelated at all to your example. It goes like this .60times100= $60 That is 60 cents a bid times 100 bids which costs $60- following? Then the winner must pay $50 on top of the $60 he already paid in bids. In my world that is a grand total of ( drumroll please) $110 not $3000. Now of course it’s true Quibids makes a lovely profit when many people bid(ESP. On same bid). It is not a scam, it is gambling- period! Reading through so many of these reviews has my head spinning at the faulty logic and/ or faulty math people employ in their opinions. It’s a great example of how bad our education system really is. Course, I also feel embarrassed for our country for so many people demonstrating their poor thinking skills! Read the terms of use before signing up and you won’t end up here looking like a complete idiot whining how you were taken for $60 when you signed up without knowing this would happen. They explain this so clearly and this contract is not hard to understand. To the fool who says they bet on a kuerig coffee maker they bid on with $90 in bids and lost, but decided to get it for the “buy it now” price for $100…you’re an idiot. You say they claimed it was worth $199, but later found they inflated that price and it was being sold elsewhere for $99.99, therefore you say you lost $100. Right, how is that? They use your $90 in bids toward the purchase now price, so you only paid $10 over your bid to get it. You spent exactly what it was being sold for elsewhere. I could go on and on analyzing all these “stupid” opinions. The bottom line is read, read, read and know that you understand what you are getting into before you sign up. It is not a scam. It is gambling. This company makes a great profit, that is true, but thousands win everyday. Just like many have said, unless you have watched many auctions and understand the strategies being employed, play hard on just one item at a time(unless really good to be able to keep track of many at one time), do not go for high end electronics or other popular items, and you most likely will win. Don’t give up too soon or you will have lost money from the initial investment of $60. For the boob who said they bought the $60 beginner bid, decided to quit without making any bids, then got on here to whine how they could not even get there money back, that is not true. They clearly state for a certain time period, if you just bought the beginner bid pack, but make no bids, you can get your money back. I do not remember how much time, but it was generous. I bet you didn’t even ask for it back cause you figured it was not possible. So please people, think and read before you ” verbally” vomit idiocy, embarrass the crap out of yourself and your country too!

    The business model is GENIUS (for them). They sell bid packs and make a LOT. That’s like selling bids to people so that they can win bids…or…selling money on the street to people for…yea…money.

    I doubled my money. But, I could have done that on a slot machine too. I found that I get an item CHEAP. Then, I put a lot down on another item until I am totally invested and run out of bids. Two bids after I run out…someone wins it. EVERY TIME. I think they have “posers” who are setup specifically to beat someone who has recently won. In order to not be obvious, they have two people bid against you until you can tell they are going to lose money. Then, magically, two others show up to continue auto bidding you to death. There are some auctions that you simply will never win. That part I personally believe is a scam. Audited by Grant Thornton or not, they found a way to F people.

    Thank you Jessica for being practical about this. This is a company! They are in it to make money. That is a good thing!

    Look at it like this. Thousands of people pay differing amounts for lottery tickets every day. But only one of those people win. Do you think that’s a scam? This is the same principle.

    You all have an opportunity to buy things at very good prices. Look at the positive side of things instead of the negative.
    I have looked at the site some and I agree with Andy, if one pays attention and uses their head you can do ok.

    How else could you have An opportunity to buy things at such low prices and still enable the seller to make a profit. And let’s be candid. That is what this is all about. If that company, Quibids didn’t sense a profit to be made this opportunity would not exist.

    That is the free market, group buying power. Etc. It’s a good thing.

    Quibids isn’t pulling in the 1,000,000% profits some people believe either…those people that go in deep on the big ticket items will usually use the buy it now option and use the bids they applied to the auction to purchase the item at full price. Additionally, some people win voucher bid auctions with low bid amounts and use hundreds of vouchers to win those expensive items.

    I saw a $800 set of speakers sell for $0.69 and the winner used 2 voucher bids. I almost lost my mind with envy…so every auction is not a guaranteed major payday for Quibids, its just like gambling…while the house wins in the end overall, the players still have fun and get to put some items in their pocket along the way for well below retail.

    The best way to think about Quibids is as a cross between Ebay and gambling. You keep raising the bid hoping to come out on top when the clock stops…it’s a risk you take for the reward POTENTIAL, not gurantee. It is up to you to do the research and watch the site and learn the bidding strategy that will work for you.

    Of course if you run in there and click 100 times and blow your bids you wont win anything and will get upset due to YOUR inability to understand the process. I have won a lot of items and I have also struck out on a lot…but when I am patient and get in at the right time, I have been very lucky.

    It’s almost like social welfare. Everyone in the quibids society pay into the system (an auction) but only one person benefits (the winner).
    The sum of bids, plus the sale price, is greater than the value of the item. The collective society is better off just paying regular price for items in the store because we will collectively pay less.

    qbids or zeekler are not scams. It’s all about strategy and patience. Yes, I’ve lost auctions but have also won a few. I got my MacBook for about 6 bids (approximately $6.00), the winning bid was about $70.00 if I remember correctly. Another friend of mine won cash (I think it was grand) and he paid even less. I think it was 5 bids, so like $5.00. Overall, for me at least I’ve probably got 3 or 4 thousand in products for about $200.00 in bids.

    this is not a scam, quibids is genius for what they do, and they make a ton of money off it. but in the end, the winner is getting a great product for a great price. You need to be realistic when going in, and the site will tell you to be prepared to spend up to a half or more of what it is worth. People go in thinking they are going to win a 1000 dollar item for 1 cent, these people are not realistic. to the people who lost 60 dollars, that is your fault. If you are patient and willing to spend the money, you will get the item at lesser or equal value. And people, seriously, this world is about making money, do you think anybody would make a site to lose money. so of course it is a genius plan to make money on their end, and as for bots making bids, not true, ive won plenty of bids that were not inflated what so ever. people may be angry that they didnt win, but it doesnt mean the whole thing is a scam. its a money making oportunity for people to buy items for less. and trust me, people do buy items for less.

    I understand the purchase bids (X) actual price(.60). What is confusing me is the payout price. I think many posts on here are using incorrect application of math.

    Outside of shipping and handling costs, the highest bidder only pays for the bids they actually used, correct?

    For example: An auction ends at $10.00, I am the highest bidder and I bid with 100 bids, thus, $10.00 = 1,000 bids. 100 bids are mine 100 x .60= $60.00. Thus I pay $60 + ship/handling costs. Right? All other bidders take the lose of their #bids (# x .60= $)and Quibids takes 1000 x .60= $600.

    This seems like poker chips, you bid with individual chips that have a equated dollar value per the COLOR of the chip not the number of the chips. A single green chip is $5, every time you bet with a green chip you are throwing in $5 per chip not $1 per chip. Winner takes all, Losers lose all.

    I am more bothered that Quibids says they will take Paypal as an accepted payment form and then refuses to take Paypal for the starter bids. Had this been posted it would have saved me a lot of time.

    And, how many of you actually have not had problems receiving your actual item in fairly prompt time? Was it received in good condition?

    It is not a scam but a very clever way to make tons of $$$$. An Ipad generation 3 just sold for $83.00. Quibids made 8300 x .60 =$4980. for the $519.00 Ipad. Clever business. I bid on a Keurig Coffee maker. They claim it was worth $199.00. I bid $90.00 on it and lost, but got a buy it now offer for $100.00. So I bought it. It was shipped from Caynes here in Toronto. I went on Caynes website to see the product advertised for $99.99. Quibids overstated the price by $100.00 and I got screwed for $100.00. Check the retail values before buying or bidding.

    Be careful when signing up!!! Signing up is NOT free. You must pay a membership fee before you can start bidding. I don’t know if they’ve changed their procedure, but it used to be that you weren’t presented with the amount to pay until AFTER you entered your credit card information. The amount of the fee was embedded in a humungous page of advertisements for bid packages that I got tired of reading and dragged the scroll bar to the bottom where the “I accept” button was. Unfortunately I scrolled past the $149 fee notification and clicked. When I entered my credit card info I thought it would be used to pay for future bids. Fortunately my credit card carrier refused to honor the request for payment when I reported that the site promised me a refund but never followed through. (The refund process is another story!)

    Thank you, JOHN! It is only a scam, if you don’t read how to play the game (and if you bid on huge items with a ton of bidders). There is an art to it and you are always given the option to BUY IT NOW. For example, you bid on a $25 gift card – most times they bid out at only a few dollars. However, if you bid 20 times at .60 a pop, spending $12.00 and lose – you still have the option to purchase it AND your bids count towards the cost! You will pay the difference of 13.00, so for the most part you break even. I bid on only gift cards and use them to shop. I am saving an average of 40%. Buyer beware and make sure that you read HOW TO PLAY. Go in expecting to pay full price – it is so much fun when instead you pay .33 for a $50 gift card!

    It’s kinda like when my buddy raffled his mustang..each ticket was 100 bucks and he sold 100 tickets, someone did buy the car for 100 bucks but the rest just gambled their money away and my buddy got 10,000 for his car when in reality he bought it for 4000. That’s what quibids is.

    My husband and I both signed up for seperate accounts on different credit cards to give this a try. I got panicky with my bids and blew through them pretty quickly. I then closed my account because I realized I had the very wrong type of personality for this type of gambling/auction idea. My husband on the other hand won a great deal of stuff. Mostly small stuff to be sure but he was able to make back his initial investment plus what I lost. We managed to break even when all was said and done. What he didn’t bother with was the big ticket items. He went for lower value gift cards and small items. For a while I was whipping out several $15 to $20 gift cards at Wal-Mart every time I checked out! I would not call this site a scam but what it does do is prey on the people who think they will get something for nothing. I know I hoped I would. If you go in with your eyes open who knows maybe you will get lucky but be honest with yourself and realize you probably won’t.
    I did want to add a couple more points about our experience with Quibids. The first is that we never had any problems understanding the process of signing up and purchasing bids nor the way in which the bidding process worked. It has been a while since we closed our accounts so maybe things have changed but we never felt like we were bamboozled into buying bids. The second had to do with their customer service team. On one of the auctions that my husband participated in there was a glitch at the end of the bibbing process and the auction closed sooner than it should have. When my husdand contacted their customer support they investigated the auction and refunded his bids. No cash back but at least he didn’t loose his bids. That seemed fair.
    I guess the only other thing I would add is that you should be honest with your self about what you are trying to accomplish. If you are trying to reel in that big ticket item with pocket change you are probable not going to walk away happy. If you have 60 dollars that you can part with then, hey maybe you will get lucky. Just have the common sense to realize it is a gamble not a guarantee.

    Quibids is not a scam at all even though it is risky! It’s not worse than buying scatcgmoffs or anything else. On my $60 I got $55 in gift cards out of the deal. So I lost only $5. However if you don’t win an auction you have the option to buy it now at the end and your bid credits get deducted from the cost of the item. So all you really need to be successful on qui bids is reasonable expectations, self control, research of products, and make sure you really want the item before you bid. It’s a fun “game” basically.

    IT IS SCAAMMMMMMM!!!! On high quality electronics, you have two high bidders that raise the price of the bid. They are the first to start bidding and bid till the end. The bidding goes as high as $60, for e.g., an iPad. It does not make sense. For it is costing them approx. $1,800 to bid for an item that costs $500. Did I also mentioned that they are bidding on every other high quality electronic at THE SAME TIME as well.

    So if you think about it, these two bidders are raising the bids on all high priced electronics and seem to never run out of bids. They just keep going and going. Why? well they attract the common folk who bids all his or her money thinking that he or she will eventually out bid the “faker”. They go through several different morons, until they feel they have made a good profit.

    If you do not believe me, watch on all the high quality products, and you will see the two same bidders bidding from start to end on all of them. Costing them thousands of dollars.

If you’re careful you and know what you’re doing you can get really good deals… FYI I sold the PS3 for $175. So I made back my $60.60, shipping costs, and the $60 for the bid pack. Guess what I still have 99 bids to use and have my eye on an I-pad….

    In my opinion QuiBids is largely a game of chance. Is it a scam? Well, it sure feels like one when you “blow” $100+ to get only $25 worth of tangible merchandise.

    The 10 second clock is maddening. Becoming the winning bidder has less to do with being highest bidder; it’s really all about timing. Diligence has very little to do with it.

    Here’s the key: You are likely to be bidding against others who are willing to pay up to full retail price for the item up for bid. These people are hoping (at worst)to win an item at a “discount” as opposed to winning something for pennies on the dollar. Nothing wrong with that I guess…they’re being realistic.
    However, if you’re expecting to “clean house” forget it.

    To be fair, I did win a $15 Home Depot gift card for 0.01 cent + one bid of 0.60 cents. But I can win with a “blackjack” at a twenty-one table in Las Vegas more often.

    Bottom line: Don’t bother. It will cost you $60.00 minimum to try.

    As a computer scientist I know what the scam in this is. First off, as soon as you join, whether you like or not you are taken for $60 in bids. Then the bidding starts. Most of the bids placed are by bots, the rest of the bids are by those just us. I was taken for $60, but worth spreading the words.

    Do the math:

    Item is worth $450

    Current price is $15

    15 * 100 = 1500 cents

    1500 * 60 cents per bid = 90000 cents

    90000 / 100 cents = $900

    QBids makes $900 on something worth $450

    NOW THAT IS A SCAM!

    1500 * 60 = 90000 cents

    Quibids is not a scam, but they are very smart at getting people to part with their money.

    Besides the whole 60 cents a bid cost, and how they direct traffic to a couple high-dollar popular items, they also include auctions that have game play “tokens” as a bonus if you win that particular auction.

    The purpose of the game tokens is to get people feel that they can put in more bids than usual because they will then get to play a game that might give them back a bunch of bid vouchers. This is the gambling aspect of the site.

    When you first start bidding you are deliberately placed in an environment where you will most likely win something with very few bids. You are also provided easy access to some game play.

    The first time you play a game you seem to win a bunch of free bid vouchers.

    Play the game a second time and you get far, far fewer “free” game vouchers because the difficulty is ramped up. They say the skill level is increased but basically the games are rigged against you so that you don’t do nearly as well with any tokens that you win at a later time for game play.

    Interestingly enough, even games that you haven’t played yet for free vouchers are also ramped up in difficulty. So with more gameplay it is unlikely that you will win much of anything.

    It is a slick way for the site to play on people’s desires.

    There are some good deals and yes, you can walk away with some great stuff if you pay attention to what is going on and how people bid on certain items. But at the end of the day most people will pay full value plus a lot more … just like most people lose at the casino because they don’t understand the ramifications of their actions and allow their emotions to impact their decisions.

    The people that invented QuiBids are geniuses. They have absolutely nothing to lose and they get people to believe in a system of bids and vouchers that has no real value, but get people to pay for it anyway.

    You will notice that your real bids are used first but vouchers are not. There are several reasons for that. I’m not going to get into the reasons behind it but it does put the average person at a disadvantage because vouchers expire fairly quickly.

    Good luck to you all. Quibids is a scam but they will get you to overpay for a lot of things. Stick with a real auction. You shouldn’t have to pay for making a bid.

    Yes QuiBids tricks people into singing up. But in all honesty if you are stupid enough to not realize that it would make no sense economically to get an item worth a certain amount for way less. Then you must fall in the group of people who believe something is legit if it has a “As Seen on TV” logo on it. I sign up after looking into it for a few weeks. I purchased my starter pack. But just observed for a few days and found the best times to bid. In the end I received 200 dollars in gift cards for about $85 dollars with taxes and shipping. I will not be signing up again just wanted to make my money back. You have to invest way to much time on the site. If you have the time to sit for hours I would suggest it but do not buy a starter pack until you seen several auctions and understand the times what time of people you should not bid against the average price not the BS price that Quibids tells you it went for last. I would not suggest anyone sign up for this but in all honesty it is possible to win way more than what you invest. So good luck

    Man you need to invest in a calculator. 1500 * .60 = 900
    and 120 * .60 = 72.

    The site is not a scam, but a rip-off to the bidders. Bidders pay 60 cents per 1 cent bid.

    Item X retails for $300. Bidding starts at $20. Winning bid is $30.

    That is 1000 bids at 60 cents, which the auction site gets $600 + $30 for the item. The auction site gets $630 paid for item they probably bought for $200 or less. All but one bidder gets screwed out of their money, the winner gets a great deal. The auction site gets $430+ as a profit. Hundreds of people wasted money to get nothing, winner gets $300 item for $30, they’re happy as a clam, auction site gets rich as they auction off 100′s of items every day.

    These types of auctions are a huge rip-off to any bidder that does not win.

He stated he read and understood that a starter pkg would cost $60…but no where in the sign-up process did it CLEARLY state you were purchasing $60 worth of bids…they just took his credit card (as many sites do in anticipation that you may use it in the future)and charged it $60…WITHOUT any confirmation statement…like most legit sites… stating you are about to spend $60…pls confirm….read comments before you comment

    Scam. Don’t do it. I think they have bots that bid against you automatically until you have paid more for the product than it’s worth.

    They need to shut these people down. It is the biggest scam and rip-off I have seen since Ben Bernanki and his hedgefund rip-off!! When going in as a “newbie”, I thought you just went in and bid , such as the legitimate company e-bay. WEllllllllll, before I knew it, I had to “buy” bids. So, in effect, I was making them money by using my little bid coins to attempt to get my husband a digital camera for Father’s Day! I noticed this: When I was the high bidder and there were zero seconds left, I should have taken home the prize. BUT, instead, they added another ten seconds on when I should have won the camera. Hmmmmmmmmmm. does that sound right? On e-bay, when the time is out you win. Naturally, you pay a small commission by using Paypal, but I never do that. So, with this group, they keep adding on seconds when I should have won and had me buy more coins, for my husband’s sake. After this, I KNOW I can get it for less at Rsdio Shack or Wal-Mart. I wish I knew how to pull strings and shut this bunch down. They make me sick, with their advertisements for wonderful things at rock bottom prices. WRONG! This group is pimping us out and we are sucking it down. No more. No more. Sayonara Quibids. And one one more thing: When an individuual receives a good deal, they will, tell everyone in sight that it was fabulous. ON the other hand, when a person gets ripped off, they will howl with negatvity at the organization that made fools out of them!

Folks use your head, don’t waste money, instead save it and pay off all your debt (yes your goal should be to get completely debt free) and invest in growth/income mutual funds!

    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.

    You will be outbid by 20 – 30% REAL bidders like you and me and 70% SHILLS and or bots deployed by Qbids. This is why Qbids is a scam, not false advertising passing itself off as an auction site and not gambling, SHILL bidders and bots = 100% SCAM and thats a fact.

    Yes! People are fools. That doesn’t mean they should be conned and ripped of by a scam. People don’t view this as gambling at all, and the site intentionally avoids using any words alluding to gambling.

    George thinks this is legit. I would encourage George to attend a live auction (of any type; cars, furnitue, estates). Go ask anyone who bid on an item and lost, if they had to pay all the money they bid even though not winning, and they will look at you as though you were the fool. It just doesn’t happen that way.

    QuiBids is a scam and there is no buts about it.

    They perport to be an auction site, but it IS actually Gambling, making it false advertising and literally thievery.

    I dunno if you can call it a scam. Its more like a gamble that most people don’t win. 1 person will win, and usually get a product cheaper then retail price. The reason I say it’s a Gamble and not an Auction is because, say your at a casino u all cash in your chips but instead of trying to win chip u win a ipad one person wins the losers chips go to the dealer (qui bids). In a auction, one going once going twice sold!!! The losers still have there money in there pocket. Like ebay if u bid and don’t win u don’t lose your money, qui bids if you lose, you lose your money and the bidding item. So it’s a gamble. You can win easy on unpopular stuff if your going for iPads, cars, tv’s…u better be a good/ extra money having gambler.

    I don’t think it’s legally a scam because their commercials are just as misleading as casino commercials. They say you could win thousands of dollars, which is true. You CAN win money at casinos, but most people lose money and the casino always ends up on top.
    Calling Quibids a scam is like calling casinos a scam and they are perfectly legal.

    I’m sorry Vicki. I think it’s a scam also but it says right in front of your eyes that you are purchasing 100 bids which is $60 dollars. If you think you can enter your credit card without being billed I’ll bet things like this happen to you all the time. No one asks you for a credit card to open an account unless they are going to bill you for something.

You have to take your hat off to the guys that dreamed it up. They prey on people’s greed, just like the bookies do for gamblers. Seems like there may be some Quibids employees leaving comments in this stream which is quite amusing. And as for Jaqueline on April 21st, yeah right, I’m sure your system will work, I’m sure it’s foolproof, easy to use and will rack up bargain after bargain.

Here is the catch, ITS A REAL CLEVER WAY OF MAKING MONEY!. scam or not, my advice is DO NOT TRY IT! I am actually making headway to develop a program that will counter the auctions, so am hoping to get my money back, 1 fold, without having to call them!….its better to use you brain to beat them, than to ask or say they are a scam. so, next month, I will make sure the site runs bankrupt. watch this space!

    It’s obvious that the people posting on here saying it “isn’t” a scam, have some connection to the site… i.e. employees. It’s also obvious by spelling of some of the “employees” who’s grasp of the English language is tenuous at best, that China is somehow involved in this scam of a “auction” site. Look if it advertised itself as being an online auction/gambling site, then yes it would be “legit” although just barely, but it doesn’t. There is an old saying “A fool and his money are soon parted” my thoughts are more simple “A fool and his money were lucky to meet in the first place”. After reading the reviews of people who were unfortunate enough to be taken in by Quibids it is so obvious that site is a scam and will soon be taken down once Attorney’s General of many states start to prosecute them.

    SCAM. I have participate in too many of their so called auctions and have yet to win. The frustrating thing is every auction I get in the price goes up, up and up. All the while the same item sells in other auctions for 10% of any auction I am in. How is that possible? I keep seeing other so called winners winning at very low to reasonable prices but when I participate they all go way over any other auction for the same items. Just makes you wonder……..

    Guys, it can not possibly be a scam if its BBB approved. So I tried it out, and spent about 500 dollars before I really got the hang of it. There are downloads out there to help you track bids and players which really help. I started selling the stuff i’ve won on Ebay. Its a great hobby for me and my wife. Give them a try! and use my link please! I am developing a software program to help profile other bidders and could use the referal bids to help gather data. Good luck to everyone!

    Is it a scam. Only if you are not smart enough to figure it out. I never buy merchandise, only gift cards. Example: a $50 target card, I bid until I have won it or I ‘buy it now’. If I win I get it for the cost of my bids plus s&h. If I ‘buy it now’ it will cost $52. I have been buying cards for a year and a half and have spent $8000! I have accumulated $12000 in cards. I buy gas, food, pay bills on line etc.
    Whenever there is a issue they are quick to reply and always are fair.

    It is like casino:

    The site make…$80 = 8000 penies = $4800 for a $700-800 product.

    The site makes a lot of money = YES, smart way.

    WHY LIKE A CASINO: You dont know if you will win, you may spend $60 on 100 bids without luck… Or you keep biding and won a $60 worth value bidding $87.

    Scam, i dont think so, you feel it as scam because you are comparing it with ebay or others…. But in fact LIKE A CASINO, YOU MAY WIN TODAY, OR LOSE EVERYTHING!!!

    My mom is a member and she studied the auction patterns. Turns out if you research an item long enough and look at the bid patterns you can find what time it is likely to sell for the least and try to win it then. Sure it doesn’t always work but my mom probably won over 5,000 dollars in stuff and didn’t spend close to that much. You just gotta be able to work the system

    Don’t do it. When I signed up I saw three different options to purchase vouchers the lowest being $67 dollars. I was not on the site very long before I realized that to bid on a high price electronic gadget or high price anything, you would have to purchase a lot more vouchers than what $67 dollars would get you.

    Think about it if everyone could go to this site purchase vouchers for $67 dollars and bid on a $400 dollar item and expect not to pay more than $67 dollars, everyone would be here.

    Nope you want a $700 dollar item you have to decide what your willing to pay purchase the amount of vouchers your decided amount to pay will get you. Enter the auction when it starts and place your top willingness to pay. If you do not get it then you spent $ 10 or more dollars just trying, plus your voucher account contains your remaining vouchers your left from your purchase of them to do the whole thing over again till your 10 to 15 dollared out.

    I was at this site for a total of 3 hours and it cost me $75 dollars and I was only trying to purchase more vouchers to built my voucher bank. I figured this is the only way your going to get ahead is to win voucher bids so you had more vouchers to bid with.

    Yep you get more vouchers to bid with and so you do paying sixty cents to bid each time. I pay to bid on getting extra vouchers and it gives me a chance to bid more to spend more.

    Nope 3 hours out $75 dollars emailed them, called them stating I was unhappy with their site wanted out and please look at giving me a refund. They gave me back $12 dollars.

    STAY AWAY ITS A RIP OFF

    Saw the ad for QuiBids during a commercial while watching the NHL Playoffs (Vancover “0″ VS Los Angeles “1″) and decided to check out the site after the game.

    It looked like an interesting enough site so I decided to sign up and take an inside look as a member. Costly plan….

    Of course they requested my real name, username, and address, but also…. they had a form area for “credit card registration” (in the sign-up procedure). It was a …. complete page 1 then click the “continue” button …. then complete page 2… and click the “continue” button… (type of deal) which basically requested your credit card info as part of the sign-up activity.

    Finally I was all signed up…. and up on screen came my account page to show me that I am now a member….. and ….. to show the monetary transactions I made so far. This is when I noticed that my credit card was charged $60 plus $8.99 tax. Now in “quibids” defense…. it “does state” on their site that a starter package costs $60. However…. there is no “order form”…. there is no “click to accept/approve payment button… no mention whatsoever that they are actually taking this money from you as you sign-up. All you get is an ad that explains that a starter package costs $60…. and you have to be smart enough to understand that you will automatically purchase this starter package “as you complete” the signup form (and without any further explanation or request for payment approval.

    I consider it a tad difficult to trust a company that would sneak money out of your pocket in such a manner. The starter pack cost $60. I saw the ad…. and I understood. BUT…. at no time did I agree to actually buy the starter pack. Nor was I given the opportunity to make that decision. In my opinion…. that’s just sneaky.

    It is not a SCAM but it is a form of gambling. People have to read through all the rules and stipulations BEFORE attempting to win an item.

    Read the comments by George posted on April 4th and by Jessica posted on April 12 to get a true picture about the site. I will not repost the same comments but they both hit the nail on the head. Buyer beware, don’t be an idiot and don’t gamble like a fool….BUT the site is legitimate and it is not a scam.

    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.

    Seriously, go do dealfun.com – see where they direct you to.

    Search for dealfun reviews, see how many people were happy in the twilight of their run – quibids is next, and you will likely lose much more than you gain.

    people are fools.
    if you pay attention to the facts then yes. the company makes $600 for every $1.00 (100 bids) that an item sells for. but somebody actually did win that item for ONE DOLLAR!! i bought a bid pack from quibids…watched the website for a few hours, figuring there had to be a basic algo. and these guys are geniuses!!! they funnel site traffic to the one or two big ticket items available at a time and basically offer nothing of value at weak times of the day. knowing this. if you do AS THE SITE ASKS and consider this as ‘potentially discounted shopping’ than you can do quite well! i’ve spent less than 10 bids (watching, judging when an item might go and jumping in at the right time) and won 3 auctions (2 for more bids and 1 for a silver bracelet which i was in the market for anyways.) again. i’ve spent $6.00 on bids, about another $8.00 in payment and have ‘won’ 50 bids ($30 value) and a hundred plus dollar (plus shipping) sterling bracelet…i won the bracelet for $0.01 by paying attention while site traffic was pre-occupied with other things.
    i intend to go after a few more smaller items and then blow out my remaining bids trying to get an ipad…best case is i get it for under 100 bucks with less than 100 bids…worse case is i blow out all my bids and buy it for retail price (with the value of all my bids subtracted). the last ipad went for $80.00 that means that somebody actually did get an ipad for $80.00, plus shipping, plus the ammount of bids they used. and the website got EIGHT THOUSAND BIDS x $.60 there’s no scam. but people are fools.

    i have to stress that a lot of people are going to lose a lot of money…watch the site for a few minutes and count the $.60 cent bids just pile up. but if you are smart. bit at the right times. and go after things you actually want. you can do very very well. don’t expect to buy everything on the site for small change but approach it as potentially discounted shopping.

    If it sounds too good to be true then figure it out logically. I, unfortunately, was looking at one of those Q sites about 3 years ago. It took me months to get my money back that I never even tried to use, but kept ALL documentation and my credi card co. Got it back for me. I informed the BBB and the attorney general of my state and the state they had as an address. Do due diligence prior to even looking at any of these auctions.

    hey sen u r an idiot, to the thought of Quibids not a scam. they advertise pennies to bid but i reality it cost you 60 cents per bid. and they win always.item wins for $50.00 that is 50 x 100 x .60 =$3000 so the winner maybe paid a hundred or so in 60 cent bids but the real winner is Quibids. total joke needs to be banned.

    I wrote a review on Quibids and I think it’s not a scam. It’s a gambling website, you bid you lose 60 cents, regardless if you win or loss. Read my full review here: http://www.keyframe5.com/quibids-review/

    They do not specify anywhere in the instructions when you start bidding that you can’t bid in separate auctions for similar items if your item is over $295. It’s written in terms &conditions that one “may not win” such an item. However bidding is not winning. I wasted 26 bids just because of that. They simply blocked me.They don’t give you an option to withdraw from an auction and be only in one. When I emailed them about the problem they replied ,” Our system will not allow you to be the high bidder in two auctions …” Thanks a lot for letting me know after the fact. If one does not like them and wants to stop participating, they do not return the remaining money.
    So you decide if it’s a scam or not. On my opinion it’s a scam, since they do not return the rest of the unused money (obligatory $60 bid pack) to a customer who does not want to be their member any longer.

    This a now you see it now you don’t but you can watch your money disappear at 60 cents a bid. Think you can get a bargain with one 60 cent bit? If you said no you can bet your bippy your correct. Think about it. They advertise these cheap prices but once inside Madams Crib they tell you there may be 1500 bids on one itouch. Consider the profit to QuiBids 60 cents 1500 times makes Quibids profit about 600 smackers. Whey can afford to buy wholesale from apple old stock and still come up with several hundred percent profit. The rules are an exercise in obfusication or smoke and mirrors. The final blow comes when you realize you have spent 60 dollars for 120 bids just to get inside the auction to look around. That happens as slippery as a pickpockets hand and it takes a moment to realize you have been fleeced.

    I am sorry dr. Oz and others who appear reputable endorse QuiBids because the credibililty of these folks will diminish soon. If your an investor buy the stock just don’t buy the product! If you invest get in and out before the customers realize the are in a shell game. I guess Oz can afford to invest in a scam because he certainly does not practice medicine anymore therefore does not need creditability .

    The account was deactivated without entering avid. In just a twinkling of eye I lost 60 bucks. They did not offer to return the money.
