1) The site is "legitimate." Pay attention to details when you sign up. Read the terms and conditions. Know what you are authorizing or not, and...
2). Understand what these bidding sites actually are; they are highly competitive, not easy to win, almost gambling, game sites. It's entertainment. It's a lottery. You compete to win a prize. And next, about the prizes. ..
3) I have received over 100 assorted items. Ranging from gift cards worth from 25 up to 100 dollars each of gas cards, retail store cards, restaurant cards, Starbucks cards, airline cards. I have received many items, to include a Dyson DC41 Vacuum cleaner, an assortment of headphones, a couple of computer accessories including two excellent monitors and other items. I have won, but not received, both an Apple iPad and iPod. I "won" all these items though hard work; spending hours at the computer, analyzing, developing techniques, timing, and luck. It really is a competition. As in all competitions, there are many losers. To win at all, to participate, you must buy bids. Lots of them. And you may lose them all. It can be very frustrating. Only the strong survive. Most people that stick with it will win something, and many times at a good price. So that's the risk.. Now, all that being said...
Update: All items delivered. The Samsung TV arrived right away, and the delayed Apple products have been delivered! Not only that, I received an even newer model iPad - the iPad Air - than the earlier model listed at time of auction :)
4) There is no problem as previously reported - It was resolved . All items have been delivered. As others had indicated; they had not as of yet shipped out Apple products going back to this past summer. I, too, had been put off exactly as previously described and awaiting resolution. They are still auctioning off Apple products as I write this review. This has been resolved satisfactorily. Additionally, I was just yesterday the winner of a Samsung TV, which I hope to receive within a couple of weeks time at the latest. I'll report back on this, as well.
4) If they resolve this issue, and/or I receive the TV, I'll report that and change the rating up. Obviously, if it's not resolved satisfactorily, or the TV doesn't arrive, I will rate the company down, accordingly.
