Staying in the 'Know' Zone

As savvy online shoppers, you want choices – and lots of them! Lucky for you, QuiBids offers thousands of auctions; each one guaranteed a winner. We want to become your one-stop shop for consumer goods, so we’re constantly expanding our product selection to provide you with greater variety in your shopping experience.

Because we auction off literally thousands of products every day, it can be really difficult to keep up with all of our offers. We know that you, our valued customer, live a busy schedule and can’t check our site every time a new deal pops up. 

So, to keep you “in the know,” we created a checklist of shortcuts to ensure that you never miss the chance to win the item you’ve always wanted – or never knew you wanted until now!

Some simple ways to keep up with the new products offered on QuiBids:

  1. Subscribe to our weekly e-newsletter.  The weekly newsletters always highlight recently auctioned items and the great prices they sold for. Even more important to you though, is the announcement of upcoming auctions. You never know what we’ll start selling; the latest HDTV, a new piece of jewelry, or whatever else we want to showcase. Everyone’s taste varies which is why we’ll show lifestyle products one week, kitchen appliances the next, and digital cameras after that.

  2. Follow us on Twitter.  By following @QuiBids, you’ll receive special promotions for free bids, be the first to learn about new updates and offers. Also, it’s another awesome way to know out what new products are in their last few seconds/minutes of auction.

  3. Narrow your search. We know that trying to sort through thousands of live auctions is way too involved a shopping experience. It’d be like trying to bid on everything you see on the shelves at Wal-Mart…at once. To make sure you always find the product you want, we’ve built a drop-down menu of categories into the top of the home page. If you’re searching for a new camera, select the Camera & Photo category  to find the camera that you're looking for.

  4. Check our site well, and check our site often. We know you lead busy lives, and that it’s hard to check our site every hour for your favorite live auctions. Do your best to carve out a little chunk of time every day or every few days so you become more familiar with the times that items go live for auction. Staying “in the know” can help you plan your auctions more successfully!

We hope these tips keep you more connected to the constant stream of new products on our website! As QuiBids’ product selection grows, we want to alwaysalwaysalways keep you “in the know!”

if I buy 360 dollars of bids and funds run low.I start to bid on an Item and am about to run out of money How long will it take me to replentish my funds"bids" so that I may get back into the bidding?and could I have just purchased more funds"bids" before I started in the auction ?

eklyons@QuiBids Says:

You can buy more bids at any time through the 'Buy Bids' tab. If you are in the middle of bidding and need to quickly purchase bids, you can buy them in the QBar located at the bottom of your account.

Is there a time of day that a bulk of new items are added? or are new items added as auctions finish?

katiehern@QuiBids Says:

There isn't a specific time we add items, they are added randomly throughout the day.

I tried to research this question myself but was unsuccessful. If I am the winning bidder on the gift cards to the store of my choice is there a list to chose from. I just want to make sure the store eg. Target is on your list of choices. Thanks

eklyons@QuiBids Says:

You can view all the stores offered for a You Choose It Gift Card by looking at the 'Description' tab located directly on each auction page.

Is it possible to place a few of the same items (exactly the same but in different auctions) on my watch list and see what they went for after the auctions have closed?

katiehern@QuiBids Says:

Yes, you can have multiples of the same item saved to your watch list, when the auctions are over the ending prices will be displayed. However, please keep in mind of the limit that you can only 1 win of the same product with a value price of over $285.00 is allowed over a 28 day time span.

I don't know about the information under each item bid ?e,g. "@16:54 CST" what it means?

jpayne5@QuiBids Says:

That means 4:54 CST is when you will be able to start bidding in that auction.
