penny auctions are advertising on google all over the place and someone really should start regulating these gambling type sites. Who is to say who is really winning these items? I think states regulate sweepstakes and lotteries but these go unchecked. Read this review before participating.

Winning a cruise for 5 cents seems like a great deal...so does that BMW on top of the slot machines in vegas. Read this review of penny auctions before you decide to throw away your money. Dont get screwed like me

An ipod nano for 15 cents ... yeah a little too good to be true. Again a slot machine turned into an internet site. I can't believe how many of these penny auction sites are popping up. They must make people rich. Read this review before participating so you know what you are getting into.

I still say most of these sites are more like gambling than a traditional auction and anyone looking at these types of sites really should do more investigating before spending hard earned money. I found this review of penny auctions pretty good.

Netflix has greatly improved their selection of on demand download content in the recent months. I was going to cancel but they really stepped up their game to compete with apple and is worth the 9 dollars per month.

This is like ebay but with no morals or rules or regulations. They allow clearly selling illegal products such as replicas (they even allow sellers to advertise as replicas). I saw someone advertising "fake channel"...the problem with a site that is operating illegally is that if they are going to allow fake replicas to be sold, how good will their customer service really be to you the customer when you don't get your item shipped to you? They are operating outside the law as it stands so don't expect them to really care about the customer

I love how this website advertises save 99%...what a load of junk. This is gambling to win not getting a 99% discount. I wish google would at least control what people are allowed to advertise on ad words.

While penny auctions are pretty much all gambling this particular site has got on the band wagon of giving your bids back if you BUY the product after you lose on it. Of course you are not getting the product for a good price, you are getting it for probably full MSRP and it is probably a product you wouldn't buy to begin with except for 1/1000th of the price.

Nice site to be able to print your very own magazine. Only 4 bucks per issue so that is a pretty good deal to be able to basically start your very own publishing company with a high end magazine for clients or customers.

I will agree that their downloads are a bit easier to navigate than cnet. No frills, just the simple facts about a DL. Their advice is pretty good too. They do have quite a bit of ads nowadays but I suppose they have to make some money to keep this site alive.

I view this as the kayak of online videos...in a similar way they have organized many online videos for people to either buy, rent or watch for free. I was looking to watch season 1 of smallville (who doesn't want to watch kristin kreuk) and it gave me several options on where I could download it or watch for free.

Complete and total scam and these guys will be laughing all the way to the bank as they probably steal your identity as well. Stay clear of these types of sites that dream of a hot asian girl who is 18 years old moving to america for you and giving you lap dances and cooking chow mein is only a pipe dream. If you pay for membership, just realize you are just paying for a fantasy

Seriously? is groupon so hard up for new deals that they want to try to encourage people to go on dates and make a baby so they can win some money? Do they think we are all lame sheep following the cheapest deal ? Do yourself a favor, read the reviews here on sitejabber about groupon before you even go on this groupon date idea.

Fake news site trying to trick people into going to a penny auction site. stay clear of these sites that look like real news but are just ads for scams. Whatever they tell you to do...it is surely a scam.

The number of fake news sites is appalling. Luckily good people out there write reviews of sites like this to warn others. Looks legit to the casual observer but is clearly a scam.

I cannot believe even penny auctions have partnered with buysafe.com. This is pathetic and is still gambling and I am sure people fall for this all of the time. Do yourself a favor and research penny auctions here on sitejabber before you sign up for bids.

Just a quick note to tell all of my fellow sitejabber friends that LOTR MMO is now FREE for everyone to play. They are adopting the strategy of giving free memberships to everyone and then those who want to upgrade can pay the extra few dollars a month for the goodies. Good concept and I expect other games to follow suit soon. They clearly need a facebook version of this game to really mainstream.
