If you have seen an advertisement for Quibids, they do a good job at enticing viewers with the belief that you can get big ticket items for pennies on the dollar.
They promise savings on all kinds of items like iPads, MacBooks, digital cameras, cars and more. “Imagine getting a new Apple iPad today for just $23.74!“
First of all, when you sign up for these sites you are required to purchase a pack of bids. For example, you might have to buy 100 bids for $60.
Quibids, like many other penny saver auction sites is a SCAM!! Initially I bought the $60 packet with 100 bids. What I found was that I used the majority of the bids trying to buy the electronic items.
When I got down on bids, I decided to bid on items that I thought would be easier to win. When I bided on a wooden counting toy for my two year old daughter, I was just trying to use my last few bids and I didn’t really expect to win. But I did. I WON!
I was so excited when I WON the bid that I immediately went to checkout. Since I’d won the bid the shipping and .11 cent fee was waived.
To be quite frank, I never got the toy in the mail. It has been several months and still nothing. I also believe that there is a team of people who work for Quibids who are bidding against you. I Have heard of credit card misappropriation associated with this site as well.
Just a heads up to you folks out there who love a good deal. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is!
