here is the truth bare with me typing on phone but i have been with happybidday on and off since like 2014-2015 and at first it was kinda hard but then you get pretty good and throughout the years have won like 6 of the lowest quality tablets/ vaccums and other stuff and just ONE time i won a good auction that was the prize plus 100 bids which is like 2nd from the highest value auction, i chose a dewalt drill but Mostly the only ones i could win were the prize plus 40 bids. which on that tier of auction the prize is usually about 50$ value, like a cheap irulu tablet or something! Anyways ever since 2017 the rookie auctions started getting worse and worse and they started only having like one good rookie auction a month meaning the prize plus 40 bids tier. and starter auctions in 2014 use to rarely have a good auction but since 2016 your paying way more for shipping ($5.00) than the prize is worth. but anyways all rookie auctions are the same now its been 6 months since theyve added decent rookie auctions now all there is is copper bullion oz that you win for 1.01 for example and you have to pay say 3.99 so your in an oz of copper for 5 bucks right? well guess what an oz of copper is barrly worth $2.50. back a year ago they had every now and again an oz of silver for auction in the rookie catagory, and sometimes those cheap tablets. Now for regular auctions yes you can rarely win a middle tier value auction but for highest Value hah ya f_ing right like the chromebooks , ipads, etc VAPORIZER WILL WIN EVERYTIME AND THEY UNTILL VERY RECENTLY used to have a tab where you could go back and see all the won auctions, who won them and for how much. well guess what they removed that tab for a reason! ppl were going back and wondering why one guy Vaporizer won every single auction he bid on which was all the high price auctions. So recap Starting 2017 everyone should say F to happybidday since theyre F-ing everyone over so hard. there are other things i cant think of that theyve changed for the worse this year 2017 but anyways unless your the prick VAPORIZER you shouldnt give this site anymore $ and let them go under plz. or they can quit scamming and go back to how they use to be but trust me you have not won anything got a discount maybe a year or so ago you were winning and spending alot but still winning cool items. well not anymore lets not let happybid see 2018 with these antics theyve adopted this year. like if you agree
I enjoy this auction site. They have a choose one product which allows me to pick from a variety of products if I win the auction. Also, I love the fact I can get bid packages at a discount.
YOUR AUCTION IS NOT FAIR.. SCAM. I WILL ADVISE AS MANY AS I CAN. CANCEL AUCTIONS, JUDGING BIDDERS BY PUTTING THEM INTO 2 GROUPS..DO YOU CONTROL WHO WINS THE AUCTION ALSO,,,HUMMMM BEWARE BIDDERS. DON'T JOIN.. ONLY 3 DAY'S TO GET YOUR BIDS BACK, OTHERWISE TOUGH LUCK, NOT A TRUE AUCTION BY ALL MEANS..A BIG THUMBS DOWN FOR HAPPYBIDDAY. PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS TO WARN THEM.
the auctions NEVER end ,,, the only thing you can win is BIDS , that you USE up trying towin something ,, OH ! I if you win a BID PACK , you have to pay SHIPPING , like the bids are shipped to you , ONLY JOIN if you have 5 to 6 hours to spend on a bet . the bets last LONGER than 3 hours .
Canada, Be aware. When I win, they said first it Out of stock, and somme same piece was still in bid and for sale. After I said that to them, they sent me this email :

We are sorry for any confusion this substitution process has caused. The product is not offered in Canada. No reputable vendor will ship the product across the Canadian border.
I love to bid on this site because it is fun. I won several items and the shipping is fast and reliable. They also cater to new users with their rookie auctions which have less competition.
Tip for consumers: My tip is to take advantage of the rookie auctions
I think 95% of the reviews here are all made up by an employee, none of these people are real they are all photo's stolen from the internet, I saw two friend's pictures up here that had no idea what HappyBidDay was...
I have bid on other auction sites some good some not.but at happy bid day it is a scam.
the auction has limits on what you can win but do not enforce equally.the bigger auctions are color coded. this should insure everyone have a chance at the top auctions. It is jan 8th and the same bidder (vaporizer) has won three top auctions and is now bidding on the fourth even though the limit is two a month for everyone else.i have emailed the auction repeatedly with either no answer or non relevant answers.i do agree with another review i read the larger prize auctions run for days take thousands of bids and at the end of it all amazingly the same bidder wins most or all of the big prizes.
Tip for consumers: watch big auctions for repeat winners
I'm always skeptical but I had a friend who showed me the site first. Use your rookie auction wins. You get 25 before you get blocked from the rookie section.
I love site's where you can develop a skill and win products. I have been bidding now for over a year and have done well on this site. I must say out of other companies I work with they ship fast and when I contact them they answer my questions right away. Unless it is a weekend.
Figured I'd give my experience since it went well! Bought my starter bid pack and manged to score a smalls silver bar and some jewelry for my daughter. Currently I'm watching the site to learn before I spend the rest of my bids.
Had some experience with other penny auctions sites in the past. I went directly for the largest bid packs. Then I waited until the Xbox reached a point where people tend to walk away. That's when I unloaded my bids. The Xbox wasn't free but it sure was heavily discounted. Can't wait to try again after a few more pay checks!
I purchased a small amount of bids and won a starter auction and several rookie auctions that are specifically for newbies. I took home a make up kit, $25.00 Walmart card, and some head phones. I still have a few bids left and I'm going to try and win my limit of rookie auctions before going after the big items. This is very fun for a stay at home mom. ^_^
I'm a competition orientated individual. This site has peaked my interest since its all about winning auctions against others. I find this holds my interest during the day while I work on stocks. Once a week I always have something arriving that I won. I'd recommend this to anyone who day trades from home and is on their computer regularly. Its been a few months and I'm still excited to log on to see what I can get.
Every week this company has free giveaways on their facebook page. From what I can see only a few dozen people participate. I figured my odds of winning on their facebook page are only 1-60! and they are doing $25-$100 amazon cards weekly! I mean I don't see any other penny auction giving away freebies like this with hardly any competition. I'm still working through my rookie auctions on the actual site. So far I've done well with gift cards.
Great site for competitive penny auction bidding! I have won several items for a fraction of retail value. Like when they have bid specials for under 10 cents a bid. - bfmv666
Happybidday.com is a very honest bidding site. It has beezid.com, dealdash.com, and quibidz.com beat by a long shot. Anyone complaining of this site being a scam is either making it up or trying to hurt the company's reputation. I have been a very loyal bidder and have received everything that I won within a timely manner. Customer support is great and this site does so much for their customers that other bidding sites don't do. (Give free bids, etc). I have been bidding on happybidday.com for about 5 years and I must say that I'm not going anywhere. I visit this site EVERYDAY even if I have won the monthly limit because I love them just that much. This site does not tolerate bots or any type of cheating devices of any sort. You will be bidding against real people, like me :) I rate this site 5 stars and want everyone who is skeptical to know: Don't be. This site is the real deal and you are guaranteed to receive what you win. I know what I'm talking about. Visit Happybidday.com and go win something. You'll be glad you did.
Some of the moms in my neighborhood told me about happybidday. It's a little addicting I have to say lol. So much fun. Got to be careful not to get too carried away. I also like their Facebook contests they run all the time. I can always use a free Amazon gift card.
I have a lot of experience in penny auctions and this one is my favorite by far. Definitely the most honest with their auctions. And the fastest shipping hands down. You have to know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em so to speak. I just watch the other bidders and patterns and I've won the most from here than dealdash or quibids.
I have been off and on on various penny auction sites and my last auction site was deal dash 5 yrs ago where I lost hundreds of dollar bcos I feel the site is so scammed. I came across happybidday online and bought initial pkg of 300 bids 6 weeks ago.. I have been winning and though I had chased few wins but at the end atleast u can buyout so not major money loss. I have already won 20+ items in 6 weeks but I stay away from power bidders, I spent whole two weeks just watching the bidders and winning small items and now I have won many big ticket items. very pleased if u know when to bid and when to get out.. :)

All this penny auction sites are a scam
Every big ticketed auction I have bid on has went way up in price. I did not think this site a scam until after the latest thing that happened to me. Now I am sure of it. I have never won an item that is worth $100 or more. I have lost 1000'some of bids and in ways that are definitely shady. The same people win all of the $50 or more gift cards and the same people win the big ticketed items also. I have lost auctions by bidrunner disappearing and auctions where I had 1.00 increments bidrunner running where I place 50 bids can'take lose unless it goes over that dollar right? I mean if it is just you and one other person 50 + 50 is a dollar except somehow my 50 bids ended at 48 how is that possible unless my bidrunner placed 2 bids in a row customer support ignored this when it ask how. Well the best yet just happened. I HAD OVER 4000 BIDS PLACED ON a Capped auction. You are allowed to run 2 bid runners on an auction. I was doing 50 and 100 increments. Now how they take from those bidrunner is random and weird. But one had 1 bid left and the other 47. One minute later I check again figuring the one bidrunner is probably gone now and planning to add another 100 bids. Instead I find the auction is over and I lost. This after 2 days of bidding and over 4000 their bidrunner screwed up again. This is unreal. I feel completely scammed. I had 500 and some bids left in my account now I have 1300 and some. How is that? They gave me 800 some bids back. Why???? It was a capped auction. I can't help but think I was just ripped off. Where does giving me 800 bids back make up for the cost I pd for 4000 bids. What can I do about this? This is the 3rd time something like this has happened and each time I had over 4000 bids on an item and each time it was a screw up with bidrunner. How convenient! We need to do something about this but what?
the auction stops when somebody wins, it can go on for days! I stay away from those, actually I would stay away from this site period, I have spent hundreds and have won nothing but a few small gift cards but even then I paid more than the card was worth. -michelle
I found the contact info at manta.com.
You bid until everyone runs out bids you can win 2 items a day.i have ask several times to go back to single item bids but they don't want two because you are not bidding on the same item that you are and yes the same ones keep winning the big item. I loved this site but I am tired of losing to the same bidder. Hope this helps
