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.

There are a handful of misconceptions about QuiBids that tend to get blown out of proportion on the Internet, and —resultantly— Google searches turn up a few bad apples:
We invited customers to tell us what they think directly on our blog last week and they didn’t disappoint. We got all sorts of comments, ranging from the old one-word “Scam” (BTW, QuiBids isn’t a scam!) post all the way to great thanks and thoughtful constructive criticism, and even one post written in German. Or a language that strongly resembles German, at least.
Reprinted below are a few of our customers’ quick takes on QuiBids:
Some QuiBids success stories!
My 1-year-old nephew spills juice and drops food all over our floor. I was so tired of wiping it with towels. I was about to go to a retail store to buy an overpriced mop, but I decided to check out QuiBids first. I’m absolutely floored that I won a Shark professional steam mop last night for only 5¢. I can’t wait to have clean, shiny floors.
To all those with negative reviews about Quibids, I had trouble winning when I first joined this site because I was impatient, but I’ve gained skill through reading QuiBids’ tips.
I made my first bids on QuiBids on 12 August 2012 and fortunately I won an expensive Kalorik wine cooler. I subsequently bid on numerous other articles, to the extent that I maxed out my allowable 12 wins by 22 August 2012. They then shut me out from bidding (as per the site regulations) until the penalty period had passed, which ends tomorrow (yippee ki yo kiyay). I have nothing but positive things to say about QuiBids as they tolerated my annoying queries and answered them all fully and succintly, to my complete satisfaction. I received all of my items fairly promptly and am completely satisfied. My only word of caution to any new bidder: Go to the site as a visitor (you don’t have to play) and read, and understand, all of the literature about the site, before you play It will stand you in good stead, should you decide to get into the bidding process. 5 ***** to QuiBids. Keep up the good work.
It is not impossible to win. It takes a little money, skill, and stategy. Besides gift cards, my favorite things to win are the designer purses. Their customer service is very fair and it does take time to learn the “ropes” I think they have cut back on products to win and that should be adressed but my family is going to have a very good holiday season with all my winnings. I do not understand how some bidders have endless vouchers. They must be very rich.
I have had a lot of success winning auctions on Quibids. It does have a learning curve and you don’t win them all, but I have received some terrific bargains on great products.
QuiBids is an amazing site. I have won many items for me and my family. I finally might be able to spoil my family at christmas this year! Thanks QuiBids! Please, please add some auctions for children..toys, lego etc. Would love to win or buy my kids some great stuff too. Thanks.
A thoughtful criticism
I think the site can be great if it is used properly by users. However, with so many people bidding with voucher bids I rarely win any items. I would love to see a limitation on some random items that do not allow for voucher bids to be used, or at least a limit to the number of voucher bids which can be used. It would also be nice to be able to ship several items in the same package to reduce the shipping costs. Receiving 3 or 4 different envelopes for gift cards I have purchased within one or two days, or even on the same day seems like a waste of shipping costs. I’d rather spend them on voucher bids. It would also be great to win voucher bids more often, or games, I have always wanted to play the games you offer, but never had the chance because other voucher bidders always outbid me once I reach my limit.
And…then…the flat-out wrong
Ive stopped bidding since my day one on this site…it is impossible to win because I guess they have a program that keeps on outbidding everybody else…You can’t tell who really won…it might just be the developer of QUIBIDS…I was ripped off by QUIBIDS! So, don’t bother to register.
You might note that these posts don’t show much regard for correct spelling, grammar, or, y’know — facts.
We auction off enough televisions to significantly increase Nielsen ratings here at QuiBids, so to announce that this week’s Featured Auction is a 46” Samsung 3D LED HDTV (a fine specimen) isn’t exactly groundbreaking.
So we thought we’d spice this blog post up a bit by naming four items that’d complement such a sleek television set and enhance your leisurely viewing experience. Let’s go!
You got your TV, but where are you going to put up? Solve that problem with this handsome cabinet from Crosley!
Did somebody say “surround sound” …?
You got yourself a sweet TV? Go get you some Blu-rays and DVDs to go with it!
We’re not saying you’re —y’know— needing it, but this in-home bike trainer seems like a preemptive health measure against this awesome television you’re trying to win.
Add these items to your Watchlist and tune in Sunday when the Featured Auction cranks up!
Please note that shipping on this item is $29.99 and that you must pay shipping if you choose to Buy Now!
Online auction enthusiasts are kind of like dogs. We promise this is a nice comparison.
There are a certain number of characteristics and traits that make a dog a dog, right? Stuff that all dogs have in common, like a snout or the ability to be trained to follow specific commands. Well, people who frequent auction sites also share a defining characteristic: That they’re looking for big-time savings on great products.
And while that runs in common through all auction site bidders, there are also a bunch of different breeds of auction enthusiasts, again, much like dogs. Some are in it for the gaming aspect, some like to develop and refine a strategy for auctions, and still others are in it just because they see it as a lucrative opportunity to save more on their shopping.
QuiBids is the best auction site on the web because it combines everything auction enthusiasts love into one easy-to-navigate website! Here are a couple of easy ways to get yourself started.
1. Watch our introductory video!
