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.
