I discovered QuiBids.com through an advertisement I saw on Facebook. I was skeptical at first because as soon as I visited the site I saw numerous items such as PS3's and Xbox 360's going for up to 80% off! After taking a few minutes to understand how it worked, I thought that the idea of paying for bids, but winning at up to 80% off if I won was a good deal so I followed the easy steps to register and buy bids and got started right away. After registering I searched the site for what type of products I could bid on, this was easy to find because everything is right on the home page.
I like the products offered on QuiBids because a lot of them are what's really popular at the moment and items I don't have. They also have some unique electronics items that I think are awesome, but wouldn't have thought about ever buying. Since joining, I have participated in multiple auctions and have won a PS3 along with a couple of cheaper products. To win the PlayStation 3, I spent about $20 in bids and $30 for the closing price so I got it for fewer than 50 dollars! I received my PS3 within 5 days of purchasing it, which was a great turnaround time!
As far as my thoughts on the auction model and on bidding, at first it was a little nerve racking to participate in these types of auctions because I don’t like the idea of losing money, but I think QuiBids offers a cool feature with their "Buy Now" program. Pretty much, the "Buy Now" program allows anyone bidding in an auction to place the value of their bids towards the cost of the item if that person doesn't win. I don't think I'll always use that feature when I participate in QuiBids auctions, but it is nice to know that I can buy the item at pretty much its cost.
Overall, I really like QuiBids.com as a way to try to win popular products for cheap. I feel the concept and the site feel and look is great and it really is exciting to participate in the auctions...even more exciting to win! The only negative thing I see is that if you don't want to use the Buy Now feature on an auction you are competing in, there is a chance you just lose that money. Other than that, I'm glad I discovered it and I plan to continue competing on QuiBids for products.
