search our QuiBids database

This is HUGE NEWS!  The invaluable data brought to you by Bid-Ninja Analytics for Quibids auctions, products & bidders (players) are now searchable!

That’s right, now you can search our QuiBids database for usernames, auction ID’s or even products you’re interested in bidding so you’re armed with the information you need to slice through your competition.

What’s more is we’ve brought this information to you in an incredibly “easy to digest” format.  There are four “areas” to this new addition to the Bid-Ninja product suite.  They are:

  • The “homepage” of the Stats – This area shows you the currently active auctions, the top 10 bidders on QuiBids (by the number of bids placed), the latest ended auctions and lastly, the most “active” bidders that are currently placing bids across all auctions on QuiBids (by how many bids they “have in play” across all auctions they’re bidding on)
  • 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
  • A “Bidders Stats” page – This page will show the total number of auctions a bidder is currently bidding on, the total number of bids they’ve placed since they started playing on QuiBids, their win rate, the total number of auctions they’ve won & lost, the total number of auctions they’ve bid on and a list of their latest won & lost auctions
  • A “Product” Stats page – This page will show you the statistics for a PRODUCT that is sold on QuiBids.  For example, the linked to page here takes you to a “Bambeco Barbecue Tool Set” product and will show that Bid-Ninja has tracked 12 auctions for this product, it’s average ending price, the best time of day to bid, the best day of the week to bid and even the best hour of the day to bid all based on historic data.  It even shows a list of the latest ended auctions for that product

That means you can use both the regular & misspelled code and instead of only getting 5 free bids, you can actually get yourself 10!! Better act fast, they’ll probably get this fixed soon enough!

This latest quibids code gets you five totally free bids to use on whatever you’d like (provided you’ve purchased at least one bid pack at some point in the past), but you’d better act fast because it expires on September 22nd!  To redeem it, log into your QuiBids account and then visit your “redeem coupon page” here The code this time is:

QuiBids Winning Strategies | Sniping & more

What is QuiBids?

This QuiBids logo is here to show you that Bid-Ninja supports QuiBidsQuiBids penny auction site provides bidders (or players) a chance to win highly-prized consumer items such as iPhones, iPads, jewelry or clothes at a sizable discount off the retail price.  Bidding commences in increments of one cent, and each time a bid is placed, it will be deducted from the remaining bids in the participant’s account. After each bid, the timer is reset back to 10 or 20 seconds (depending on the auction).  The winner is the last person to have placed a bid when the timer reaches zero and the auction ends.

Since its establishment, Quibids has attracted a number of bidders who have implemented successful strategies and developed into professional QuiBidders – also known as power-bidders.  These individuals have mastered the art of the auction bidding, many of which use penny auction software such as Bid Ninja.  The Bid Ninja App gives its users vital information such as win-rates and net gains and losses of competing players, which bidder is running out of bids, total bids used and more – all in real time.

Here is a video of the Bid-Ninja software in action:

 

Quibids Winning Strategies

Penny auction players who participate in auctions must set realistic expectations and develop sound strategies. Adhering to a sensible spending limit will enhance the auction experience and ensure he or she does not incur unnecessary expenditure. There’s a fine line between being an aggressive bidder and a scorched earth strategy.

Volume Bidding

Bidding by volume can be problematic. This strategy requires very aggressive bidding to “scare off” all others. Firstly, to sustain it requires lots of money. This strategy may instill resentment within the QuiBids’ community and place a target on this player’s back – metaphorically speaking, of course!

Jumping an Auction

Entails locating “hidden” Quibids penny auctions. Often these auctions are for premium items such as iPhones and have less bidders because they occur during rush hour. Sounds funny, but its logical. During rush hour, people are busy travelling in cars, buses, trains, and even airplanes. Astute players take advantage of playing during these “slow” periods where the odds of winning are higher. To learn more about this strategy, check out our blog post how to properly jump an auction on Quibids.

Sniping

The goal with here is to wait until very late in an auction to begin bidding. The strategy requires some experience playing penny auctions and the ability to recognize when an auction is about to close. Two indicators of an auction’s pending closure are known as Hot Price (HP) and Very Hot Price (VHP). The HP of an auction is the point at which 84.1% of all previous auctions closed for a given item; the VHP occurs at 97.7%. For example, an auction reaching HP suggests the final price is getting closer; whereas one reaching VHP could close within seconds. While the percentages may seem random, these analytics are derived from analyzing years of similar auctions and generally quite accurate. Bid-Ninja’s color-coded bar clearly displays pricing thresholds that makes sniping a Quibids winning strategy.

Bidding by Group

While some players choose to be a Jack of All Trades, others prefer to master 1-2 auction groups. The strategy here is to become an expert on like products, such as gift cards, electronics, or appliances. Alternatively, products can be grouped together by value. In this case, you could focus on high-end or inexpensive items. Regardless which group, the logic here is someone who is thoroughly knowledgeable about a particular category of products will be more successful in the long run.

In summary, Quibids players who take the time to develop and implement good auction strategies are more likely to achieve success.

How to Win on Quibids – The Question on Everybody’s Mind

How to Win on Quibids

Winning in the world’s biggest online retailer and penny auction requires cunning, the tools of the bidding trade and strategy. Every bidder knows that winning the auction means being the highest bidder when the time runs out. Of course, you would also need to know about other aspects about the bidding war such as your competitors. Here is how you can win on Quibids –

Stay Realistic

This cannot be stressed enough. Unfortunately, it is also often neglected. Penny auctions such as Quibids are addictive and can cause some players to set unrealistic expectations. Therefore, the first tip to win on the penny auction website is to limit your spending to realistic levels. You have to realize that you’re up against serious competition on Quibids…there are people (like the one in the video below) that have spent over $700,000 on QuiBids! Because of this, staying realistic is of the utmost importance.

The Time and Day Matters

You can win big if you keep this fact in mind and capitalize on it when the opportunity arises. For example, you can win if you only bid on the day and time certain Quibids items are put up for auction for the least amount. How will this help you win? There is less competition for items that sell for less than their average price. In other words, you will have better chances of snagging a bigger prize if you be patient.

Bid Late Strategy for High Value Products

If you absolutely have to gun for high value products and can afford to pay more, you can choose to bid at the very last second at the Very Hot Price or Hot Price of the auction. What are they? These are records of statistics that are reported on Quibids Report. These are basically rare price points which mean there might not be many bidders vying for them unless they are in it for the long haul like yourself. Also keep a close eye on other bids and wait it out till other bidders give up. You shouldn’t have a problem with this if you are in it for the long haul. Claim your prize once the field is clear.

Know your Bid Time

You can bid cheaper on certain auctions by selecting the best time to bid. For example, if you bid on a time when they are less competitors bidding for a particular item you have a stronger chance of winning. There are a lot of auctions for people to choose from so you won’t have trouble looking out for auctions with a thinner online crowd.

Use Bid Ninja

This particular software gives Quibids bidders a definite edge. Bid Ninja is designed to provide users a layout of the Quibids playing floor. For example, it provides the number of auctions your competitors have won, the auctions they are currently bidding in, and more. But the best part is that Bid-Ninja also lets you know the best week and hour of the day to play in. Such a tool would give you a plethora of strategies (read opportunities) to win big and then some.

*** Avoid this next temptation like the Plague! ***

Going for the Big Prize

Going for the most popular item on auction immediately is a bad idea, period. This is one of the most common mistakes that beginners make when they use the website for the first time. Needless to say, the results aren’t pretty. Remember, there is a lot of competition for these particular items and most of the competitors are seasoned bidders.

So there you have it. Remember, when it comes to winning big in Quibids, strategy counts. Choose the best online software, remember when to bid, keep track of your competitors, avoid the common pitfalls and you will rake in the winnings in no time.

Can Software Really Help Win More Quibids Auctions?

How Using Software Can Lead to Winning More Quibids Auctions

Winning an auction on penny sites such as Quibids comes down to statistics…and of course using the right tools. Playing without using resources – such as software to compile stats and analytics, is a lot like trying to build a house without a hammer or nails. Of course you might be able to build the house in the end, but you are going to have a much harder time doing it and go through a lot of frustration in the process.

Using the right software can give you an advantage over other users by giving you information and statistics not widely available. While most bidders are going into an auction blind with no prior knowledge of auction trends, you will be prepared with information about the item and past bids to make informed decisions and confidently dedicate each bid. One of the best pieces of software for use on Quibids.com is Bid Ninja – a Chrome extension that provides information right on your computer screen.

Just check out these two videos where you can see auctions actually won using Bid-Ninja:

)

Bid Ninja is a highly recommended type of Quibids software on the market because of the 3-core capabilities that it offers you in comparison to other software available. The first capability is that Bid Ninja analyzes Quibids auctions 24-hours a day and watches for data trends that could benefit you during bidding. Some of the information it collects includes recent winning bids for certain items, auctions that are currently open, and other users who are bidding on the item as well as their bidding trends. All of this information can be viewed using Bid-Ninja Analytics that shows you real-time auction information.

Another great resource that Bid-Ninja offers is the ability to automatically place bids using BidBuddy® – an automated tool that conveniently places bids for you based on your input. You can setup BidBuddy with certain parameters and guidelines to follow based on your research or budget, then Bid-Ninja will take care of the rest. Setting up certain parameters is easy to do and will let you use your bids based on how many users are left in the auction and the total price of the item. For instance, if you want to save your bids until a price has reached $3, you can set that information in the software and your first bid will be applied when that total price has been reached. This Quibids software feature makes it so you aren’t glued to your computer all day, and you can go about your life without spending hours on an auction.

The third and final feature of Bid-Ninja is that it allows you to search for and monitor multiple auctions that may not be easy to find from Quibids main page. Some auctions are hidden so that more veteran bidders don’t have to indefinitely compete against newer bidders joining the site. From this pane, you can monitor every item you might be interested in purchasing as well as those that you are currently bidding on. Consider Bid-Ninja Auction Tracker your bidding command center where you can get all the information you need to develop your plan of attack and increase your odds of winning.You can choose to be like everyone else and go into every auction with desire to win, or you can make it a reality by giving yourself the right tools to win.

Bid-Ninja Analytics, BidBuddy, and Auction Tracker gives you essential information every user should have before an auction. Information like this can help you to avoid wasting your time and bids at the start of an auction like some of the more novice users. Bid-Ninja has three price tiers starting at $59.99 a month for the three tools and can be purchased at their website. If you consider the amount of money that you could potentially throw away not using these services, Bid-Ninja seems like a bargain.

QuiBids Strategies to Try Out – Win More Auctions

Various QuiBids Strategies

QuiBids is one of the most popular Penny auction sites where you can have the chance to win big ticket items for a fraction of the price. Bidding on QuiBids is an amazing idea when you’re looking for a bargain price on products. What’s even more interesting is that even if you lose the auction, you can directly buy the product at retail price without incurring a loss.

The same idea has definitely occurred to a lot more people and the QuiBids site continues to get more and more competitive. If you are one of the few that never seem to be able to challenge the pros, then these strategies would be a great place to start until you can find your own lucky formula to win auctions.

Be Aggressive

This is a tricky one to use. This entails placing a new bid before the clock has run out of time. This move is all a play on the psyche of the bidder. Imagine being in the shoes of the other person.

As soon as you bid on an item, the other person outbids you and this cycle keeps on going over and over again until you have no choice but to give up. Waiting for the clock to run out would show some hesitation on part of the other bidder allowing them to hope that they have a chance to win the bid.

The Other Side of the Coin

There are times when you will come face to face with someone who will be aggressively bidding on the product that you have set your sights on. Have no fear because such bidders can be easily dealt with. At this point, you need to understand from the perspective of the aggressive bidder.

When a bidder gets aggressive, chances are that they are trying to outsmart you because they only have a limited number of bids left in their account. This is because they are trying to outbid every person in the auction and this can take a toll on their bids. At this point just wait and see when the bidder runs out and you can take your prize home.

Know When to Bid

Timing is everything when it comes to bidding. The best time to bid is when it’s time to commute to work. No one has access to a computer and the chances of winning an auction are higher. The prime time when the competition gets heated is after work hours until 10pm. Try to find the sweet spot when there are fewer bidders and more auctions.

Use Bid Ninja

Using a third party software such as Bid Ninja can work wonders for your auctioning capabilities. Bid Ninja is a great tool that allows you to gather information on the auction and the bidders working against you. You will be able to see the average closing price of a product and whether bidders are playing with real money or bids. You will also be able to see the win-loss history of your competitors along with the number of auctions they have taken part in.

Knowing just how exciting and dynamic a penny auction can become, they have introduced the tool as an extension which means that you won’t have to navigate away from the site in order to take a look at the numbers.

A penny auction such as QuiBids can be a great place to find bargains but like every other competition, you need to have a strategy and a working knowledge of your opponent’s strengths and weaknesses. Once you have the information and know how to use it, nothing can stop you from getting the prize.
