It's not easy to win on any penny auctions but this one is as good as the next. (in 22 reviews)

I've dabbled in penny auction bidding on and off for years. HappyBidday has caught my attention recently. They have auctions you can bid on for free. I have never ever seen that anywhere else. The whole concept of penny auctions is you have to purchase bids in order to participate. And they have plenty of those too, but bidding for free is new to me. Great feature.
I used to bid on these auctions maybe 7 years ago or so and I just didn't like how it was done back then. A friend of mine told me about happybidday and how he had won some tools and gift cards so I gave it a look see. I can see how some people might get carried away bidding on the auctions, but you have to stay focused and don't bid more than you can afford to. It's pretty neat.
Anyone who writes a negative review about happybidday doesn't understand penny auctions in general. I've been bidding on these sites on and off for years. And this one is actually really good...fair, fast shipping, best prices on bids that I've seen. You are not going to win every auction you bid on. That's just not realistic.
WOW! The best penny auction site around. I used DealDash and once I found Happy bid day I never went back. When you compare both sites Happybidday has better customer service, faster delivery, and it is much easier to win an auction. Try Happybidday I hope you are as happy as I am.
HappyBidDay is one of the best penny auction sites around. It's fun, exciting and has tons of brand new products to choose from. I won an iPad for $33.77, an Amazon Echo for $24.50 and $100 gift card for $7.50. I was very impressed with their delivery time and friendly customer service.
I love that they really have auctions for all levels of bidders. Plenty of auctions for beginners, which is really nice when you are first starting out. I learned to start in the beginner (they call them rookie or starter) auctions until I felt like I knew enough to start bidding on the higher ticketed items. That's been my strategy and so far it's been good for me.
I love the set up of this site, it's just so fun with the happy faces. As far as penny auction sites go, you do get the most bang for your buck here. Bids are always cheaper here. And if you can catch a special, you can get a ginormous discount on your bids. I also like that they have the most up to date products to choose from when you do win an auction.
This site is fun and has great deals. I looked at their blog page before I joined and it listed all of the recently sold auction prices. That's when they had me. I knew it was real and I could actually shop and buy what I needed for a stupid low price. Pretty cool.
Careful, this site is addicting! It is fun and you get sucked in bidding on these auctions with all these awesome products. It's such a rush when you win I can't even tell you. But, don't be a fool and just mindlessly bid until you've spent everything and have nothing to show. Watch. Learn. Bid appropriately.
There should be a disclaimer on how addicting this site is. The auctions run 24/7 and you don't have to sit and watch it the whole time, but you get sucked in. The competitive side of me comes out and I must win! And I have won, several times. Feels really good and I like getting brand new stuff on the cheap.
Happybidday is pretty cool. Not only do they have a ton of auctions going, but there are also free to bid auctions, where you can bid and not have to buy bids to play. I think they are called happy auctions. When I'm bidding in the regular penny auctions, I use the bid runner feature so I don't have to watch it all day. I'm a fan.
The reviews are either way positive or way negative. The positive reviews are probably posted by shills. Someone is always bidding when the auction states "going." That could be a bot. Meanwhile the auctions can take days to end while you exhaust your bid supply. What has to happen for the auction to end? Does everybody have to become incapacitated or broke at the same time while one person with a lot of time and adderall, hangs in there? Yes you can get things for low prices but it might cost you thousands of bids.
My mom turned me on to this auction site. It's so much fun, especially when you win! Wow, what a thrill. I myself stick to the smaller auctions. I seem to win easier there. They have a ton of cool products, it's almost overwhelming there is so much. Give it a go!
STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!! Don't play penny auctions. At Happybidday I won, sure but just more bids. I couldn't even win gift cards..... Don't play if you don't have the $$$$$$ to throw away....
I was laid off work for a few months and while at home perusing on the internet, I found this auction site, happybidday. It's pretty cool. I first tried the free to bid auctions and ended up winning a bid package. So I used that to keep bidding. Then I won a gift card. That came in the mail within a few days, really quick. Pretty cool.
I have never seen an auction site that offered so many different products. Usually it's just gift cards. I also really like their happy auctions. They are free to bid on. All you have to pay for is the won auction price and if there is shipping. No catches. Pretty cool.
This is the coolest site. I find it fun, challenging, and stimulating. Finding a bidding strategy keeps you on your toes. And when you win, the rush is real! I've won several auctions and have received my products super quick, within a week typically. I've only interacted with customer service once, but they were very helpful.
I came across happy bid day when I was laid up with a running injury. I became a little obsessed with auction bidding and winning products. It's a bit of a rush when you beat everyone and win an auction! At first I was bidding on auctions with bid packs as the prizes so I didn't have to purchase a bunch of bids at first, while I was learning how it works. I think even when my foot is recovered, I will come back to bid. Especially because they even have "free to bid" auctions where you don't have to buy bids to participate. Cool concept.
I don't think I've ever seen quite so many products to choose from in an auction site. Not just gift cards, like actual products. And as far as strategy and winning an auction, I personally have found it's been easiest late at night - fewer bidders. That's my experience anyway.
This is definitely one of the best penny auction sites I've participated on. Huge selection of products (in one auction even). They always have specials on bids. I love this, because companies always give deals to new customers but existing seem to miss out, but not here. Customer service is super quick and helpful too, the few times I've had to reach out.
Cool site. Turns out I'm not great at winning auctions yet, but thankfully there is this cool feature of buy it now so I still got the tablet I wanted super cheap. I'm going to do a little homework and learn how this auction stuff works. My tablet shipped to me super quick too, which was great.
Now, this is discount shopping. My uncle had been using this site for a few years. He gave me an iPad for Christmas and I was shocked because he can't afford that. He won it on happy bid day. He is really good at auctions and bidding and now he's gotten me into it. There are so many awesome products to choose from too.
Undoubtedly one of my worst online experiences. Even if you win an auction ...you lose big time. I managed to win an auction for an amazon fire stick. ...after a few days I get an email telling me they don't have any. Can we send you an amazon gift card instead? The thing is I had not only already spent more than the new cost of an amazon fire stick , but also paid over $20.00 for shipping & handling ect. That was enough for me...to close my account ! I will never visit another online auction site of any kind, and I most definitely will not buy anything from amazon ever. !
I make it my business to know all types of auctions and auction sites. This is one I would definitely recommend to anyone. You can get good deals on bids, always have specials. The product selection is incredible and they actually ship fast. A lot of auction sites, you won't see a product for weeks. This one is impressive.
I read some of the reviews and totally disagree with these customers. For several years now I have been bidding on auction sites and I must say by far this is one of the best. They have been around for over 5 years, deliver their product on time, get back to me same day and they don’t use bots. I am on several forums and this company has a good reputation. Not everyone bids responsibly and when they lose, well you know it’s some else that is at fault. They have starter and rookie auctions which are great for new bidders.
I have been a loyal customer since 2011 and have won more products than I can count. All their products are brand new and were delivered quickly. I had a few hiccups throughout the years and they always got back to me quickly and resolved the issue to my satisfaction.
I am fairly new to penny auctions and this site had a friendly format. From the time you register and buy bids they have a representative on their site that talks you through the process. I am the type of person that doesn’t like to read, so hearing someone explain the process was perfect. I won 3 auctions and received all my product within a week.
A friend of mine in my community told me about this auction site. She had won a really nice mixer and some gift cards at an unbelievable discount. So I figured I would give it a try. Glad I did! My favorite so far are their Happy Auctions. You get to bid on those for free! I'm a bit of a penny pincher so that's right up my alley. Although, I will be purchasing some bids soon and trying my hand at some other products and auctions now that it's holiday shopping season.
THEY ARE A HORRIBLE COMPANY. IF YOU DO THE MATH, ALL PENNY SITES RIP YOU OFF BUT THIS COMPANY PRIDES THEMSELVES ON BEING "HONEST" AND THEY ARE FAR FROM IT. SLOW WEBSITE, HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!! DONT BUY INTO THEIR SCAM!!!!
I've participated in many auction sites over the years and I have to say I really like this one. There are always fun specials that give you deals on bids, tons of different products and even if you lose you can still buy the product at their low price. I especially like how an auction features 15 products. So if you win, you have the choice of the product you want. Very neat feature.
