QuiBids 101

Let's Talk Limit Busters!

Everybody shops with QuiBids to save BIG and have fun! We realized early on that there was a significant amount of users who not only often reached their daily win limit but also the 28-day win limit, and grew tired of waiting around for their win limits to expire. That’s just no fun at all now, is it?

So we created Limit Busters as a way for you to deduct wins from your 28-day auction win limits, enabling you to participate in more auctions. It’s a little confusing, we realize. So, let's consider the following scenario:

John Doe has won 3 auctions today, including a Bust One - Limit Buster, and has a total of 5 wins for the 28-day period. When John purchases the Bust One - Limit Buster, the most recent win would be deducted from his win limits which would drop his wins for the 28-day period to 4. 

Keep in mind that Limit Buster and Voucher Bid auctions still count towards your daily limit. Limit Busters only clear wins off your 28-day win limit. 

If you have any questions, feel free to add them in the comments section below or read an overview of Limit Busters in the FAQ's.

If all 12 limits are full can you bid on a limit buster?

katiehern@QuiBids Says:

Absolutely, as long as you have not reached your daily win limit!

Can limit busters be purchased?

katiehern@QuiBids Says:

Yes, you can buy a limit buster at anytime during the auction and up to 2 hours after the auction if you have placed at least one bid.

If I won an auction but decide not to finish the transaction and pay for it, will it open the slot in my available wins?

jhayworth@QuiBids Says:

Great question! Your win limit will remain filled even if you do not purchase the item you won, as the auction limits are based upon won auctions rather than items purchased!

Do I lose the auction/item if it's cleared out from a Limit Buster?

katiehern@QuiBids Says:

No, you will still receive that item.

How often do you have limit buster auctions?

JJordan@QuiBids Says:

We auction Limit Busters daily. Select the 'Limit Buster' category from the drop-down menu and you will be able to see all of the limit busters that are up for auction.

The 24hr time period, does it start from the time you win your first auction or your last?

eklyons@QuiBids Says:

Each won auction has its own individual 24 hour time limit. Exactly 24 hours after you win an auction, it will be removed from your 24 hour limit. Let's say that you win three auctions at 1:00PM, 2:00PM, and 3:00PM. Those filled auction slots will open back up for you, the following day, at 1:00PM 2:00PM and 3:00PM, allowing you to fill that slot again with another won item.

How do I know when I can bid again if I've reached my 24 hour limit?

eklyons@QuiBids Says:

You are able to view your current auction limits in the 'Auction Limits' section of your account. This section is located under the 'My QuiBids' tab.

I have only one win. Will getting a limit buster return my status to a non-winner?

katiehern@QuiBids Says:

No, once you win an auction you will no longer be considered a beginner or non- winner. Limit busters are used to expire your 12 wins in a 28 day time frame limit.

i dont remember seeing a question of the daily win limit. Is it twelve?

eklyons@QuiBids Says:

Yes, that is correct. You are allowed to win 12 items within a 24 hour period. Please note, Voucher Bid Auctions and Limit Buster Auctions will fill a slot in your 24 hour limit and not your 28 day limit.
