QuiBids Wall of Auctions

Since there are fewer competitors than the well-established sites, you’ll have chances to pick up some easy wins while there aren’t thousands of power bidders to compete against! Check out this new “gift-card friendly” site here: https://www.bid-ninja.com/brand-new-penny-auction-site/.

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

A real review of Quibids

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.

It’s Quibids. Not Qbids, Qbidz, or Quibidz

Thought I’d inject a bid of humor. It’s amazing some of the ways people (my self included) refer to Quibids when there first starting off. We are constantly getting tickets & emails from new users asking us if QuiBids (or Qbids … :) and Dealdash, Orangebidz, etc are legitimate. We even still get legitimacy questions about the now defunct penny auctions: MadBid, Beezid, HappyBidday, and PrimaBids. All of these penny auctions are (or were) legitimate. That said, 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

Summary

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.

DealDash Might as Well be Giving Away Free Bids with This Promo

What’s Going On at DealDash?

The guys over at DealDash must have temporarily lost their minds, because with this latest promotion of theirs, the bids might as well be free.  There is no coupon code needed or anything…you literally just show up and get bids at this absurdly low price:

We’re pretty big fans of DealDash. And a sale like this only makes us love them even more. When DealDash runs a promotion like this it means the competition is going to be fierce. Players are going to have deep bid inventories.  We suggest doing the following three things:

1 You’ve got to have enough bids in your account to make sure you can actually make it to the price the auction typically ends (not only in price, but when the bidders that you’re bidding against typically “fall off” the bidding bandwagon).  Of course the only way that you’re going to know that type of information is to make sure you’re following the next step…

2 Bid-Ninja! That’s effectively the entire second step.  Alright, we’re being a little cheeky here but there’s a reason. How else are you supposed to know when to begin bidding?  Or when you should never bid? How can you know the best day of the week and hour of the day to play?  The answer is Bid-Ninja. See why so many DealDash power bidders use Bid-Ninja.

3 You’ve got to have a strategy.  Whether that strategy is a simple one or a complex multi-layered onion of a strategy, it doesn’t matter (well, it matters a bit), but the point remains the same.  Walking into an auction and randomly throwing a few bids around isn’t going to get you very far.  If you’ve got a strategy in place, you’ll be more vigilant with when & how you bid.  That’s the most important part of having the strategy in the first place. You need to stick with your strategy and avoid “emotional bidding!”

If you’re a bidder on DealDash head over before the sale ends. For Quibids players who’ve been considering trying out Dealdash, now is a great time with bid pack prices so low. We don’t know when it will end, so hurry up!

Beezid Shut Down? Many Left Feeling Beezid is a Scam

Beezid Shut Down?

Since about early October 2016, not a single auction on Beezid.com has actually allowed for bidders to place any bids, with all auctions being listed as on “standby”.  This has left many people wondering if Beezid has shut down, gone out of business, claimed bankruptcy or a variety of other causes for not allowing anybody to place any bids or participate in contests of any kind.

Currently the Beezid website looks like this:

What Happened/is Happening to Beezid Now?

  • No auctions are running

    With no auctions running users with bids left in their accounts are unable to use them to place any bids.

  • No message about closing down

    You’d think that if a site as large and popular as Beezid was going to close it’s doors that it wouldn’t have happened so unceremoniously.  If you visit the Beezid site now you won’t see a single message or blog post or anything else indicating what has happened, is happening or will happen.

  • All links on the site link to the homepage

    A recent, and very strange, site update has left every link & menu item on the site just linking directly back to the homepage making it impossible to navigate to any other page, let alone log into your Beezid account.

  • Tremendous amount of negative feedback

    One of the most unsettling things about this development with Beezid is that many users are left feeling that Beezid is a huge scam.  The very popular penny auction forum for avid PA players “Penny Auctions Forum” has actually dedicated an entire section to the shut down of Beezid and the fallout here.  One of the threads in that section entitled “Beezid Chargebacks” is up to 15 pages!

Looking for Help with Your Beezid Account?

The best resource we’ve been able to find to share with our loyal Bid-Ninja users is the previously linked to Penny Auction Forum, more specifically, the Beezid section.  There users have been posting ways they’ve been able to successfully recover some of the funds from their accounts through various methods, along with sharing contact information and just generally being able to speak with others who have experienced the same negative experience.

What’s to Come

Sadly, we don’t know what is going to happen to the users who lost thousands or didn’t have merchandise delivered, or even the owners of Beezid themselves.  What we can say is that we here at Bid-Ninja are very sorry for those who were affected by this and we hope that Beezid makes all of their customers whole.  For a very long time Beezid was a favorite of the penny auction community and it’s very disappointing to see them handling this situation in this manner.
