A lot more reliable and trustworthy compared to most other penny auction websites. I know they source their products from actual retail stores and you can get some great quality items at crazy low prices. And even if you don't end up winning the auction you want at least you get the chance to redeem all your bids used towards a buy now price for the item, similar to an ebay auction price, so you can still get what you want without losing your money on unsuccessful bids.

Bidrivals is yet another one of the million penny auction sites out there selling everything from ipad auctions to LG HDTVs. Auctions for MP3 players are also there. But where this site differs is that they also have bizzare cheap things like women's shawls or purses without a major brand name. I am not sure why they are auctioning off items I think most people could care less about except perhaps these items people actually WIN and then they buy more bids thinking they can win that LG HDTV. That is just pure speculation, but if it is the case then perhaps they are on to something. you see many of these sites have reviews where people complain they win nothing, on this site you may win that women's shawl if you bid on it because who really in the end wants that shawl anyways

Yet another crooked pay-as-you-bid-and-lose-your-money psuedo-auction site concocted by some creep in Malta.

First find the fine print and then read it: your 'bids' cost you 80 cents each (paid for before you bid) yet when you use (and lose) an eighty cent bid the auction is only increased in price by 1 penny! Some creep hiding overseas keeps your 80 cents. This is illegal. You are paying money for nothing: you have given money and received nothing in return since your bid is lost when outbid and criminally reduced to a penny on the auction price to entice more on-line users looking for a deal.

These crooked live auction lose-your-bid sites are popping up everywhere!

Buyer beware! If it sounds to good to be true it usually is, and this lesson will cost you your hard earned money.
