Have you tried QuiBids yet? Whether you have or haven’t, it’s good to know it takes a certain amount of strategy to be successful. One of the best, first things to do on the entertainment retail auction site is to visit their QuiBids101 section. It’s an informational portal they’ve had since day one that gives a more in depth explanation of their services/features and also offers tips on how to participate on their site.
Some of the best tips given by QuiBids have been:
Buy Now – Don’t walk away empty-handed! QuiBids simply provides this safety net for all its users. Should you be in an auction and not win, you get to apply the real bids you spent in that auction, towards the price of the product. Make up the difference, and they’ll send you the product. Worst case scenario should be walking away with a product at its retail value.
Set Realistic Expectations – Don’t go into the site expecting to pay $0.01 for a laptop. It could happen and it has, however, that’s not the norm. Give yourself a budget, start small and build your way up.
QuiBidders alike enjoy sharing the love and helping others. Check out what some of the QuiBidders tips are via Bidding Tips from QuiBidders on Twitter.
What tips for fellow QuiBidders do you have? Let us know below in the comments.
QuiBids has had Badges on its site for quite some time. It’s one of the ways it implements game-like mechanics into its site and keeps things entertaining. Who wouldn’t want to be awarded achievements for certain accolades on the site and get free bids while they’re at it?!
After a pause in Badge production, QuiBids has rolled out the Get to da Choppah Badge, the 5,000th Bid Badge, the 10,000th Bid Badge, and the 25,000th Bid Badge. The Get to da Choppah Badge is one you can achieve by winning an auction or utilizing the Buy Now on any product in the remote control sub-category of the Sports and Recreation category. The payout is two free (a.k.a. voucher) bids. You can obtain the 5,000th Bid Badge by bidding (utilizing either real or voucher bids) the amount of times it says in its description, 5,000 times! This bid payout is 25 free bids too! Same goes with the 10,000th and 25,000th Bid Badges – you bid that many times collectively and you get these badges. Bid payouts are both 25 free bids. To see a bit more information on these new Badges, visit QuiBids blog.

This just in – QuiBids implemented a new list in its Store (US Store only at this time) labeled Big Savings. The Big Savings list is one that features products for an even larger discounted price. Currently there are products for Home and Garden such as outdoor furniture, cooking and baking appliances and; Jewelry and Fashion items like designer sunglasses, totes, watches and more! And yes, there are plans to add additional categories of products in the future.

QuiBids has had the QuiBidder of the Week program for about the past year and has acknowledged tons of its customers for not only their loyalty, but to showcase their great wins! Take this past week’s winner, Sharon C. “I love QuiBids, not only because I’ve won lots of great products, but also because it’s fun and exciting!” Sharon’s been on the site for over a year ever since her fiancé started taking on a night shift. She’s won multiple products including hard drives, a vacuum cleaner, iPads and more, not to mention utilizing the Buy Now.
Buy Now is QuiBids’ feature that allows you to purchase a product at retail, minus the cost of bids you put into that auction. That is, if you’re on the auction side – don’t forget about the QuiBids Store! Sharon tells QuiBids she uses the Buy Now for items when she’s invested too many bids into an auction. Great save and great strategy Sharon!
For more details on what Sharon has to say about QuiBids, visit her profile on the QuiBids blog. Or if you’re a current customer and are interested in being the next QuiBidder of the Week, be sure to visit QuiBids Facebook for the details! After all, you could win a $50 gift card of your choice!
If you’ve been around the entertaining auction industry for long, you may have heard of the so called “colluders” or bullies that can rob the fun out of the overall auction experience. Colluders basically are those bidders who tag-team, on the side, with other bidders to gang up in an auction to win that particular auction. Other bidders may or may not know about this activity and when the collusion is taking place. It’s a rather tricky and shady bidding tactic. How does QuiBids keep track of who’s colluding?
In order to keep collusion under control, if Q can’t shut down all colluders, is simply the Terms and Condition that they have in place. Some of the factors such as having only one account per household helps. If there are multiple accounts tied to the same address, it sends QuiBids a red flag to keep a watch on that account(s). They also have a full compliance department that monitors all these accounts on a daily basis and takes many factors into account before they actively notify a user of their activity.
Can’t we all just get along? If you think you know the username of a colluder on QuiBids, be sure to inform QuiBids’ support! For more information on collusion, visit QuiBids blog.
We’re mid-way through February and before we know it, it’ll be spring time! But before we get too excited thinking about the warner weather, we wanted to show some of this week’s great auction wins in Canada.

It’s the time of year to think of that special someone, chocolates, flowers and goofy cartoon cards. As much fun as it is to receive a pastel-colored sugared bunny (Peeps) at the end of a long work day, QuiBids is keeping it simple by asking customers to Vote with your Heart this month and giving away free stuff! What stuff is being given away…. products like jewelry, watches, home and garden items, electronics and more!
Each week during the month of February, QuiBids is featuring a new category of products. You get to vote for your favorite product that week – the product with the most votes at the end of the week then goes out to one QuiBidder. So after you vote, enter for your chance to win. Although voting is in your best interest, it is not required to enter to win. How much easier is that? Read more on the Vote with your Heart promotion via QuiBids’ press release or on QuiBids’ blog.

The amount of free bids vary per product that you purchase from the QuiBids Store. For instance, if you are looking to buy an outdoor grill like this Masterbuilt Barrel Grill, you’ll receive 16 free bids after checkout. Or if you’re in the market for some cellphone accessories, in particular a TomTom Hands-Free Car Kit for your iPhone, you’ll receive 10 free bids after checkout. Just be sure to view either the category or product page of the specific items you’re interested and you’ll be able to see the amount of free bids that are associated with every item.
