Do you know Stevie?

Jun, 14th 2012 in News, QuiBids Employees by Matt Carney

He’s a new friend of ours, one that we’re proud to introduce to you! You see, “Stevie” is the affectionate moniker for the trophy given out by the American Business Awards every year. Or, trophies, rather, as a host of different companies are awarded for exemplary business practice in 44 different categories. They are:

-App Awards
-Company/Organizational
-Customer Service
-Human Resources
-Intelligence & Technology
-Management
-Marketing
-New Product
-Public Relations
-Website

This year is the tenth annual installment of the Stevies and QuiBids (after finishing as a finalist for New Company of the Year for 2011) is up for the year’s Fastest-Growing Tech Company award for companies that employ up to 2,500 people! We couldn’t be more excited about it! Our site’s been live for a little less than three years at this point, so to be honored twice so early in our existence like this is — well, we feel a lot like another young Oklahoma City-based team that’s enjoying a lot of success in their early goings!

Fun Friday: Kevin Durant vs. Russell Westbrook…let the battle of post-game fashion senses begin!

Jun, 8th 2012 in Contests, Events, News by Matt Carney

While questions about just who leads the Thunder’s pack have died down this season — it’s the reigning three-time NBA scoring champion Kevin Durant, in case you were wondering — teammate Russell Westbrook’s been challenging Durant in another arena: the post-game press conference.

Both players have taken to sporting especially impressive outfits here in the playoffs, and the sartorial arms race hit a fever pitch during the Lakers series when Westbrook donned a polo-style shirt that probably doesn’t hang in many closets owned by grown men. Paired with a set of frameless, fire hydrant-red glasses, he looked like something out of a children’s cartoon.

Say “Hallo!” to our new bilingual customer support representatives!

Jun, 5th 2012 in QuiBids Employees by Matt Carney

While the bulk of our customers and the majority of our operation are based in the United States, QuiBids easily qualifies as an international business. We’re proud to have cultivated dedicated customer followings outside our own borders; first in Canada and then Australia, on our way to our newly opened auctions in the United Kingdom. We’re also currently working on expanding into another primarily English-speaking market, New Zealand!



QuiBidder of the Week – Lena G.

Jun, 4th 2012 in Testimonials by Blake Brown

This week’s featured QuiBidder is Lena G. from the United States. Like many other Quibidders before her, Lena experienced some skepticism when she first heard about the deals that people were getting with QuiBids. So she approached with caution, to determine for herself if QuiBids was in fact legitimate.

It didn’t take Lena long to realize that QuiBids was just what we say: an exciting, fun way to shop and save on tons of hot products! After winning a sweet Nike Thermal Jacket for herself and a Hoover vacuum for her mother, Lena quickly became a fan of entertainment shopping, and can now proudly say that she is the QuiBidder of the Week! Check out her QuiBids story below:

Fun Friday: Looks like you should’ve bid on our Zombie Survival Kit…

Jun, 1st 2012 in Uncategorized by Matt Carney

Is it the real-life dawn of the dead?

News outlets are reporting suspiciously zombie-like behavior all over the country, and we’re getting concerned for our customers. If you fear a zombie is at clawing at your window, please tear yourself away from any QuiBids auction you’re participating in and run!

Unfortunately we’re fresh out of the Zombie Survival Kits we auctioned off for April Fool’s Day, as well as this copy of Zombieland, but rest assured that we’ve still got plenty of advice for you when it comes to surviving in these darkened times when you can never be quite sure that your own cousin won’t try to bite your nose off.

Each month at QuiBids we get to celebrate a particular manager or employee whose work steps up above and beyond what’s expected of them and achieves that rare, particular balance between quantity and innovation: working hard while working smart.

This month it’s Mike Domingos, who’s our director of strategic sourcing! Mike spends his time building relationships with suppliers so we can offer you the most competitive retail prices we can! He also drinks enough coffee each day to keep a whole stable of horses caffeinated. Here’s your chance to get to know him!

May auction recap

May, 30th 2012 in Products by Matt Carney

Every month is a big month for savings at QuiBids, which is why we have to recap them all to help us remember and celebrate our sharpest, most fortuitous customers and all the great prizes they win for wee bits of cash! May was no different, and all those savings going around surely paid off big for a bunch of customers looking for a great gift for Mother’s Day or even just help trying to win one!

Well let’s get right to it and check out this month’s ten best deals! We do however advise you not to proceed if you’re easily prone to convulsions brought on by severe jealousy of others’ massive savings.
