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.
Auction sites don't usually have the amount and variety of products that happy bid day does. I think since they've added a style auction called choose-ones, I've seen the amount of products available significantly increase. There is something for everyone. Their customer service department is always timely and helpful if there are any issues. I also love how fast their shipping process is. Other auctions I've waited weeks to receive my winnings. It's just a few days at happy bid day. Love these guys.
I've been bidding and winning on this site for about 7 months now.SO many awesome products. I even won a new vacuum for my mom's birthday. I can't believe the prices some of these auctions close out on, but when you win and it happens to you - what a feeling! I've gotten to a point where I know if certain aggressive bidders are on an auction, I don't even try on that one. There are so many other auctions to choose from anyway.
I've heard mixed reviews about auction sites but I got some free bids for this site and decided to try it. I started in the Rookie auctions since I am a rookie lol. I won a $15 Amazon gift card! And received it within a few days. I'm learning to bid on certain auctions that are in my range until I'm more experienced. So far so good for me! I'm going to keep doing my research and developing a strategy to win bigger products too. I'm excited!
I loved quibids so much I thought I would give this one a try. Don't waste your time on it. They give good discount for bid packs and have good opportunities to get free bid packs, but that's what makes it bad because everyone has so many bids at all times and it takes forever for an auction to get over. That's the only case they would have so many going at once is because they never end. They add bids into the prizes so they canaje it a higher retail.value and peak interest and that's crap. The worst thing is that they have a cap on most items so people won't ever stop bidding and the item can look like a good deal. That's not how penny auctions work. This site is just terrible. And that's putting it lightly.
One of my favorite hobbies in my spare time is auction bidding. A friend of mine showed me happybidday a couple years ago. I'm glad I had a friend to kind of show me the ropes. I've had the hang of it for some time now and it's not only fun, but the thrill of winning just can't be described. I've always received my won items within the week of payment also. It's awesome!
This is the only bid site you can find the bidder keep going 48-96 hours non stop just for one item. Also they keep going almost to the item retail price or more then the retail price which is really funny. strongly recommend for Canadian not to go for this site as you have to pay a huge amount for shipping.
I have always loved auctions. I've been bidding on happy bid day for about a year now. They're always running good deals on bid packs and have a ton of auctions up with a big variety of products. I've won several gift cards, a couple kitchen appliances and a tablet I gave to my nephew as a birthday gift. I received my wins usually within 3-4 days. Great auction site.
I have always been a thrift store shopper, deal chaser, and penny pincher. I've come across some really great finds and this happybidday is one of them. I'm able to do some of Christmas shopping this way too. You have to have patience & time in the beginning to learn how to win these auctions, but once you do, you will be hooked.
My lifestyle has recently changed and I no longer work FT days. With all this new found time, I've been online quite a bit and I found this site. I didn't buy anything at first because I had never participated in this type of auction. They have a certain set of auctions that are free to bid on, which is awesome for newcomers like me. I actually won a gift card so I purchased it for what the auction ended at and received it 2 days later. They were running a promotion so I ended up buying a bid pack. I still pretty much keep to the free to bid auctions and the rookie auctions until I gain more experience. It's fun to win and get a good deal on top of it!
PayPal stopped being allowed, for there was to many complaints and chargebacks. Hmmm, are they Happy… NO SCAM sucks you bids Dry! Only the plants people win, Check my other post, See the names, if they are bidding on an item you are guaranteed NOT to win. They are Plants to run up bids then win.
if you see "tan111" or "chas27" don't throw away you bids. They don't stop no matter what the cost. Sometimes they pick one item and keep winning it one after the other until HBD finally stops offering it. If you frequent the site you'll notice loyal old timers slowly drifting away. I think HBD is making changes for the worse even if they give them short term gains.
This is the best auction site I've come across or participated in. Bids are cheap, sometime really cheap depending what the special is. Products ship super fast. I've received all of my wins within 3 days. I've used these penny auction sites on and off for year. This one is my favorite.
I came across an ad for this site a few months ago and gave it a shot.I lost some money at first because I had no idea what I was doing. The idea that I could win jewelry or an Amazon gift card for just a few dollars really appealed to me. So I educated myself and read the help sections they have and other people's suggestions and I won my first product! It shipped within a couple days. I feel more confident on how and what to bid on now.
I used to bid on these type of sites all the time, but stopped for a while because I didn't have the time. Now I do. This one is great - big variety of auctions and products, fast shipping. Other auction sites have too much competition or too little auctions, but this site doesn't seem to have that issue.
I thought this was too good to be true when I first heard about it, but sure enough it's the real deal. I have won iPods, gift cards, jewelry as gifts for the women in my family. I've read some of the slanderous things people have written about this site - total opposite of my experience. I think they must be angry they can't figure out how an auction site works and just lashed out instead of learning.
A friend told me about this site. I used to be a big ebay shopper. This site is really cool when you understand it. I bought some "bids" - like tokens or chips. There are so many auctions up with so many different products And these products are brand new, unlike ebay. I started out just bidding on the Rookie auctions and starter auctions. Seemed like less competition and just easier to learn the concept and strategy. I have won a gift card and a blender so far. It's fun!
I'm really enjoying this site. Like some of the others have said, you do have to develop a strategy and watch and learn in the beginning or you could blow a lot of money. But if you take a little time to understand it, you can & will legitimately win brand new products or gift cards. They recently added Rookie Auctions for super beginners - I would suggest trying that first. It's fun to win something and get the product so cheap! There is a thrill to it.
I gotta say, I'm a fan of this site. I'm impressed with the whole set-up, process, prices. And every time I've won an item, I received it within a couple days, which was surprising. Smaller stuff like a gift card you might even get the next day. Pretty cool. After bidding on sites like these for years, it's hard to find a consistently good one. But this is it for me.
This is a cool site once you understand how it works. I have won some gift cards and most recently a grill. I like the gambling aspect, but it's less risky than actual gambling. I like that all the products are brand new and ship super fast. Good experiences so far.
I've been in and out of gaming/gambling. I'm always on one site or another. For about 3-4 months, I've been on this site and it's a lot of fun, if you have a strategy and know how penny auctions work. That can take a little time. But this site has a huge product selection and always a ton of auctions up. I've also recently noticed they do facebook contests weekly to win bids. And sometimes they just put bids in your account for logging in as a promotion. It's pretty cool.
It is not a scam, but you do need to play carefully or you can easily lose a lot of money. So just watch carefully, you have a few options as a new player. I wouldn't buy a bid pack right away. 1st use the beginners, if you have never won anything you can win up to 3 things as a starter, then up to 5-6 as a player who has never won more than 6 regular items. Then bid on bid packs they are cheaper than buying them, you can take surveys as well for bids. Have fun, you can easily win things you want or need for half price.
I stumbled upon this site through an email I received. Pretty cool! There are a ton of awesome products in their auctions, although I mainly go for gift cards. When I win, I can either use for myself or use them as gifts - they are delivered fast!. I save at least half of the amount of the card when I win. It's awesome. Even if I lose, I just buy the card out right and get my spent bids back. That is probably what I love most about it. There really isn't any risk.
I just recently joined over the last few months and I gotta say, I'm impressed at the product selection, the number of auctions at any given time, the rules they have in place to ensure fair play. It's just awesome. I found them on facebook too and they run some fun contests where you can win just by guessing a number. It's pretty cool.
I've tried these types of sites on and off throughout the years, but this one I actually really like and will stick around a while for. It's easier to understand than some of the other auction sites. They don't gouge you and have a decent variety of products. I also like that they have a satisfaction guarantee so I feel like there isn't as much risk involved.
I have used these discount auction sites in the past and sometimes they can be fun and you really get super good deals. But I've also learned that not all auctions sites are created equal. Happy Bid Day is the best one I've participated in. There are always a variety of products, and lots of auctions to choose from. They also give away bids on a regular basis just for logging in and contests where you can win gift cards just for throwing your guess out there.
I've never participated in this type of auction before and I was alarmed to see the clock constantly resetting. I thought for sure this was a scam until I won a gift card and it came. I never thought I'd enjoy this type of auction, but it's alot of fun and I've won some usable stuff.
I've played around on PA sites for a number of years. I ran across this one while looking for another one. They were having a sale on their bids so I figured what the heck. I bought some bids and started bidding. Competition is a bit stiff, but overall I'm really pleased. The customer service is great, the shipping is really fast, and the products are definitely desirable. All around good site.
The people who say this place is a scam don't know what they're talking about. Everything I have won from this company has been sent. Granted, some of it has come a little later then I expected, but I still got it.
I only joined this site because I had to complete an offer to get free tokens for a game I like to play. I decided to fool around a little just to see what would happen and sure enough I won some bids for real cheap. I figured what the heck and bought them. Ended up winning an amazon giftcard with my first 10 bids. It arrived this morning in the mail and was legit. I redeemed it onto my account with no problem.
My sister introduced me to this site and I really love it. I've already won 2 pieces of silver and a gift card and I've only been a member for a week and a half.
I like the large variety of items to choose from. I'm hoping to knock out a bit of my XMAS shopping on here. It's not only fun, but I've won several things in the last few weeks that I've been a member.
I have been playing Happy Bid Day for a while and I like it except this new way I would rather have one item to bid on because now you have five or more bidding on different items I hope they go back to the other way it is much easier to play.it is true but if your watch your web site it is the same bidder all the time and who can afford two bids at a time if you calculate the bids and the cost you can buy the item on ebay or amazon.i have been on happy bids da for close to 2-3 years but I am backing off because it is getting two expensive for the way you have it set up someone is reselling this for a lot of money/ sorry for the negative response but it was more fun to bid on one item at a time. the you know what you are getting
Tip for consumers: buy your bids on the action you get a beater dealAsk l about HappyBidDay
I recently completed a positive review of Beezid, but I'd like to stress the absolute magnificence of this site right here - HappyBidDay.com. My 2nd day on the site and I won a christmas tree. Not just any christmas tree, a 7 and a half foot christmas tree. Those christmas trees are so expensive, this was a huge help to my mom. I can't wait to get it to give it to her. Now I just gotta win enough stuff to fill up all the space under that tree.
Being new to penny auctions I was really nervous, but having joined happy bidday, I feel way better about my decision. I didn't want to buy anything right away so I bid on their free auctions just to see how it would feel to participate. I enjoyed it so I bought the package I won. They gave me a few "promo bids", turns out you can only use them on the auctions for beginners. I saw a silver coin with a shark on it and knew I had to have it, I love sharks. I think I spent roughly 7 bids and it was mine. under 5 bucks and I've got a cool silver coin. I haven't won anything big yet, but I'm planning on winning something good for Xmas. I'm reading all the tips I can and stocking up on bids in the mean time.
HappyBidday only wants you to buy more bids. You will win the first three of low end products..and then they have you hooked. After that the website hopes you do not notice the names of bidders...always the same bidding on a product, in a world the has billions of people. Take advantage of the 25 free bids and starter auctions, but after that close you're account.
I'm a seasoned veteran when it comes to penny auctions; although, I've been out of the game for awhile for various reasons. I joined happybidday probably 2 years ago and participated very little just prior to my penny auction hiatus. I've jumped back in this month and started up again on happybidday. I took the usual steps, updated my account information since I had moved, bought some bids and started bidding. I wanted a game console I knew would draw a lot of competition and spent a fair amount of bids on it. I realized I now had the option to buy it at retail price and get all my bids back which they did not have when I first joined so this was exciting. The auction ended, I didn't win, so I bought the console outright and got all of my bids back. Good deal. Now I have the xbox I wanted for my son and my bids are back in my account to use to win something else for him or myself. We'll see what pops up on my radar next. I highly recommend joining. It's awesome and you can't lose, even if you don't win the auction. Just buy it and get your bids back.
I joined this site yesterday after seeing some of the reviews on here. I bought a bid pack and started bidding a little. When I woke up this morning I had already won my first auction. So far, 5 stars! Less than 24 hours and I'm already gonna get a $25 amazon gift card. I will update with more details when I get it.
10/31/2014 -- WELL I got my gift card. I actually got it the 29th. That's right, A DAY LATER IT WAS DELIVERED. How is that even possible?! I won a 7 inch tablet the otherday and a silver coin. I hope they come as fast as my gift card. This site is amazing, I am a customer for life.
Being from Canada theres not many options for penny auctions here. Found this site and was happy see they ship to Canada so I joined right away. I've won a few things, but they take a little longer than I'd like to arrive, but I guess thats because they have to cross the boarder from the US. Overall, good site. I recommend to Canadians who want to bid on penny auctions.
I like this site so far. I just joined this week, and I already got the gift card I won on Wednesday, so that's cool. I let my boyfriend bid from my account earlier today and he won a silver coin and more bids so I can continue to win. We need a new blender so I'll be bidding on the next one, for sure!
Tip for consumers: If you're new, take advantage of the starter auctions. You'll win some cool stuff REALLY cheap. You can't use them after you win twice so do these first.Ask Jesse about HappyBidDay
