Customers love the Omaha Steaks on QuiBids

Carnivores Welcome!

One of the best features of QuiBids is the wide assortment of products available for bidding (in auctions) or Buy Now (from the QuiBids Store).  Since QuiBids launched in October of 2009, products from our Electronics Category like smart phones, tablets, computers, TVs, for example, have consistently been some of the most sought-after products on our site.

Recently, we began offering products from a brand that you probably wouldn’t consider to be available on a site like QuiBids, and that brand is Omaha Steaks.  At first, we weren’t very sure how customers would feel about bidding on high-end grocery items like steaks, lobster tails, filet mignons, and more.  We soon discovered, however, that QuiBidders really do love these meats from Omaha Steaks. Below we’ll show you exactly what customers are saying, but first let’s have a look at what you’re getting with Omaha Steaks.

What is it?

Omaha Steaks is “a fifth-generation, family-owned company with a passion for providing the finest in premium beef and gourmet foods.”

Who can bid on (or Buy Now) Omaha Steaks Auctions?

Omaha Steaks auctions are currently only available to bidders from the United States and Canada.

Do I receive actual meat or is it just a gift card?

You will not be shipped gift cards, but the actual package(s) of meat directly from Omaha Steaks themselves.

How’s the meat shipped?

The meat is shipped in a Styrofoam container packed with Dry Ice.

Should I bid/buy a package of Omaha Meats from QuiBids? 

We want to help you make that decision for yourself.  Read what other real customers are saying about the Omaha Steaks packages they won from QuiBids below.

 

QuiBids customers love winning Omaha Meats and sharing the photos on Facebook.

“Q, perhaps you should add SMALL FREEZERS back to your Store — I had to purchase elsewhere, but well worth doing!” – Karen C.

Colleen couldn't wait to return from vacation to try the Omaha Meats burgers she won on QuiBids.  She loved them and ended up posting this photo on Facebook to share.

“We had a wonderful vacation at Cape Cod, the seafood was so good but couldn’t wait to come home to have a burger on the grill..The burgers were outstanding, can’t wait to try the steaks this week-end.Thanks Q for offering the Omaha Beef…” – Colleen H.

“Lookie at what came today!!!! STEAKS N BURGERS!!! YUM-O lol” – Nicole C.

This customer was skeptical about the size of her steaks at first, but after adjusting the cooking time for thickness, she ended up giving the steaks "two thumbs up."  She also went on to mention that the other items pictured were won on QuiBids, in addition to the George Foreman grill she used to cook the steaks on.

“Don’t know about anyone else, but we are having our first Omaha Steaks…not totally thrilled with the quality…Ribeyes seem thin and as you can see, two in the box were excessively fat and two fairly lean…hope they taste good!—After making some adjustments to our normal cooking for the “thickness,” I stacked them on the Foreman…2 minutes then reversed them to cook 2 minutes on the uncooked side. The taste was excellent. Cooked to a hair less than medium…maybe a slightly rare medium. We both gave them a two-thumbs up, after the initial shock of opening the box. —haha…just realized, looking at the picture that this is the Q corner…Q Salt and Pepper Mills, and Q Henkels knives and steak knives, can’t see the Q Toaster or the Q Foreman Grill I’ll be cooking them on.” – Denise A.

“Well, I am really excited, part of my steak package came in and they look great. The 16 hamburger steak and hotdogs came in and the two ribeye and the two sirloin strips came in, they are about 1-1/2 inch thick, they look great. Still waiting for the sole stuffed with crab meat, maybe they will be delivered later this afternoon. Hope yours gets delivered soon too.” – Sherri A.

Don't worry about your Omaha Steaks getting damaged during shipment. This photo submitted by one of our customers shows the Styrofoam box that is also filled with dry ice.

“Some of you have wondered how Omaha ships and if it safe. I assure you from recent experience, DEFINITELY!!! Orders are packed w/dry ice in Styrofoam coolers like this one and are hard-frozen when received. I think I’m correct in adding that when you get your “Shipped” notification, your order will arrive the next day (even if there is no tracking).” – Karen C.
