PHOTOS: #BringOnTheFun Make-A-Wish Oklahoma’s Walk for Wishes

Nov, 6th 2012 in Charity, News, QuiBids Employees by Matt Carney

At QuiBids we’re proud to have the great privilege to work with non-profit and charitable  organizations around our hometown of Oklahoma City. The majority of our employees either grew up in Oklahoma, were educated in Oklahoma, or both, so partnering with local chapters of major non-profits (and organizations specific to our home) makes volunteering all the more personal and meaningful to us.

We got to get out and help last Saturday by sponsoring the Oklahoma Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Walk for Wishes fundraiser at the Oklahoma City Zoo, the proceeds of which go straight to granting wishes for children facing life-threatening illnesses. The weather was about as perfect as early November in Oklahoma can get — ideal conditions to get to support a more than deserving cause. But before we get to the photos from our visit to the zoo, here are a couple of quick numbers on this year’s Walk for Wishes!

Time to start Cooking with QuiBids!

Nov, 1st 2012 in Contests by Matt Carney

UPDATE: This promotion has ended.

What’s the Cooking with QuiBids contest?

Once again, we want to know what’s going on in our customers’ kitchens! QuiBids sells loads of cooking appliances and kitchen accessories, but once they get squirreled away into your hearths, we rarely —if ever— get to see what goodies you use them to fix. Bread makers and woks are nice and all, but not what really matters is what you prepare out of them!

So like last year’s contest, Cooking with QuiBids is your chance to share a recipe with us and to hear what other QuiBids customers are fixing up in their kitchens. You have until November 15 to submit recipes, and on November 16 a panel of QuiBids employees will pick the ten best ones. You will then have until November 23 to vote for your favorite recipe! The entrant whose recipe garners the most likes on the QuiBids Facebook page will receive a KitchenAid Stand Mixer (QuiBids Buy Now price: $350.00) and a $50 Walmart gift card (QuiBids Buy Now price: uhhh… $50.00) for their awesome recipe!


Happy Halloween from QuiBids!

Oct, 31st 2012 in QuiBids Employees by Matt Carney

What’s Halloween without costumes?

We hosted a little costume contest here in QuiBids’ Oklahoma City office this afternoon and our awesome employees went all out for the title of “Best QuiBids Halloween Costume.” Though there could only be one true champion, we’ve been sharing a lot of great movie characters, sports stars, childhood favorites, and out-there concept costumes roaming our halls via QuiBids’ Instagram all business day long.

Check out some of the best ones below, and click through to comment on them via QuiBids’ Instagram account! I’ve added a few honors of my own, but we’d love to for you to leave a comment and tell us which one’s your favorite!

Oh, and don’t forget to tune back into this blog post later to see more costumes as we post them! And around 5 p.m. or so, when we’ll announce our QuiBids Halloween Costume Contest winner! And don’t forget to follow QuiBids on Instagram!


The best deals on QuiBids in October

Oct, 30th 2012 in News, Products by Matt Carney

Another month, another bevy of crazy deals on QuiBids.

QuiBids isn’t the world’s best bidding site for no reason — day in and day out customers score deals on QuiBids with a frequency that’s just unmatched anywhere else online. How do we know? Well, we keep an eye on the site and share some of the best QuiBids deals we see each month so we know that we’ve got customers out there who are absolutely fleecing us with regularity.

So prepare yourself to get jealous because each one of these deals on QuiBids is in the upper echelon of 95+% savings on products that are far from cheap. Here are ten of the best deals we spotted on the site in October.

Troubleshooting your Refer a Friend issues

Oct, 26th 2012 in Site Features by Matt Carney

UPDATE (11-26-2014): There is a new way to refer your friends to QuiBids. Go here to learn more. 

Pop quiz: How many Voucher Bids do you get for referring a friend to QuiBids?

[It’s OK, take your time. We’ve got all day.]

[Looks around awkwardly. Pulls out phone to see any missed text messages or tweets. Checks watch.]

Alright, time’s up. The answer’s 25 Voucher Bids for a successfully completed Refer a Friend on QuiBids, but every so often we hear back from customers whose accounts weren’t credited with the bids after a friend signs up. And —understandably— they want to know what gives!

About 99% of the time the answer to their question is quite simple: The friend they referred simply signed up without using the customer’s referral link (see this previous blog post about how to Refer a Friend to learn how to get your unique referral link), thus leaving the original customer’s account uncredited. There are two pretty common scenarios that lead to this, but they can both be remedied by contacting QuiBids Customer Support.
