I should start with QuiBids is a great idea, and definitely from a financial standpoint it could be quite popular. However, the advertising that QuiBids is doing is quite inaccurate. When I decide to join something that offers me the chance of brand name goods - then I want BRAND NAME goods. Another issue that I found horrible when you join you're automatically charged. I didn't notice anywhere that I'd be charged simply to join. I know that a lot of places are doing that since it's been successful for other businesses. I'm already going to be shopping with you, but you're charging me just to see what you're selling. Actually stock Apple products - then come back to me, and I'll gladly sign up.
I would have liked to try QuiBids without having to invest $60.00! Unlike other penny auctions you do not even offer an incentive for a first purchase. I have never made a purchase on a penny auction so I guess I will look to other penny auctions for my first experience.
Very please at the level of compassion and acting professional. But human! Not cold iron clad rules!
I will rejoin when the rules are further understood by me.
Won 1, lost several just trying to get acquainted. I wouldn't be a regular, it's too time consuming. The other issue that might encourage me to use it more, is that if you pay for bids in the Buy Now price, that they were changed to real bids, since you pay full price for them.
Overall...5 out of 10 rating right now.
Given that I live on a very fixed income, I am always trying to find new ways to save money. While perusing an online article I came across a reference to Qbids and got curious. The front page showed promise - but all the viewable auctions had mere seconds left. Wanting to see more, I went ahead and created an account - hoping to get a better idea of what the site was all about.
As soon as I had, I noticed a $60.00 credit showing - sure enough my bank also shows a matching pending withdrawal.
I simply cannot afford to lose that much money unexpectedly. It is the lions share of my grocery budget for the coming eighteen days.
I have emailed Qbids but am having a major panic attack simply waiting for a reply that is not coming very quickly.
Hopefully I will have the same luck as others I have seen here in getting a prompt refund - or else I literally do not know how I will survive until the first.
Thank you for any consideration in advance. This is truly a very serious issue.
ETA: It took a couple of days, but the $60.00 was refunded. To those suggesting that not reading the Terms and Conditions is somehow a catch-all to avoid being upset, I say to them that few people, if anyone at all, reads Terms and Conditions in this day and age. But, beyond that, as a person who does all of their shopping online - reputable sites ( even those I use multiple times per week ) go out of their way to make SURE I am aware that I am spending money. Try to buy something on Amazon and see how clear it is that they are deducting funds from your bank. This website didn't even try to provide an indication that a financial transaction was about to take place.
I did not know that QuiBids would take the 60.00 out just from me registering. I was not ready to bid.
They have started the process to refund me my $60.00 and they did it right away, just waiting for it to hit my account.
They also cancelled the account at my request, I need to get a better understanding of how this works and be more prepared for the experience.
First time going on the site I was told to put my card information. Then it withdrew 60 dollars automatically from my account. That's the only thing I did not like. Went back on to talk to customer service and they only returned 30 dollars back to my account. I won't ever be back to that site again.
the website deliberately undermines other websites such as eBay by basically comparing all of the traits it has, eBay has many other good things that they don't mention. This site is also pretty much just gambling disguised as something different you buy bids (basically the quibids equivalent of chips) then you use them to bargain with other people on the web and ultimately you will lose money as not everyone can win the auction, and im pretty sure the chances of winning are alot slimmer than you think.
