Above and Beyond Employees: Rick Baker

Sep, 13th 2012 in QuiBids Employees by Matt Carney

Since there aren’t a whole bunch of tech companies in Oklahoma, there aren’t a whole lot of guys quite like Rick Baker around here either. He’s been working for our Technology department since June of last year, and they’ve grown into a fun, funny, and tight-knit bunch.

Rick’s outstanding work’s set him apart as one of QuiBids’ finest employees, so we’ll be getting to know him better today here at the company blog. Find out a little about Rick playing in a band with Kurt Cobain once upon a time, what his “desert island” hypothetical is, and exactly what he loves about working for QuiBids!

QuiBids Australia: It’s been a year!

Sep, 12th 2012 in News, Products by Matt Carney

It’s been a year now since QuiBids first opened its doors to Australia! Can we get a woot woot?

Instead of baking a one-candle cake for each of our customers —which would be costly, time-consuming, and totally unfeasible due to the fact that our business is located in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma— we’ve decided to hold a little mini-contest for y’all, worth some Free Bids!

Below we’ve dug up the biggest deals on ten of the most popular, most expensive products we sell in Australia. When you’re done mopping the buckets of jealous drool off the floor, tweet one or all of the deals below via the “Tweet” buttons.

We’ll give ten FREE bids each to five customers who post tweets via the tweet buttons below! Winners will be notified tomorrow (Thursday, September 13), so check your Twitter accounts. Now, on to the deals!

Like QuiBids? Leave a review!

Sep, 5th 2012 in News, Testimonials by Matt Carney

If there’s one thing that the Internet’s proven for certain, it’s that people love to share their opinions as far and wide as they’ll reach.

We’re totally behind that inclination to share here at QuiBids. If you enjoy a product or service and experience good customer support with it, then your voice should be heard! On the flip side of the coin, it’s also your responsibility as a consumer to warn people about goods and/or services that don’t fulfill the advertisements they use to draw you into their marketplace.

QuiBids yields good reviews and bad reviews, but not in equal measure. The Better Business Bureau backs our business with an A-minus rating, and our advertising reflects the deals that are possible for customers who spend their bids and time wisely. Most of the people who take to sounding off on complaint sites are the ones who skim through the sign-up process unaware —despite our obvious and repeated disclosures— that a QuiBids profile costs about $60 and includes your first 100 Real Bids. Happy customers are the ones who read up on our QuiBids 101 pages and enter into our auctions with a realistic expectation of what they can accomplish and a clear strategy to achieve it.



QuiBidder of the Week – Diana B.

Sep, 4th 2012 in Testimonials by Blake Brown

We’re back from a brief Labor Day break, but we’ve returned just in time to present the newest QuiBidder of the Week, Diana B.! Be sure to read Diana’s QuiBids story below, and feel free to submit your own entry to become the next QuiBidder of the Week.

QuiBids Featured QuiBidder of the Week - Diana B.

“Since I became an RN in 2009, I have always wanted a Pulse Oximeter. As a single mom of three young boys, it wasn’t on the top of my list of things to buy – a good one will cost between $60 and $100. Married now, and a mother of 4 boys, it still has not been in the budget to buy one. You can not imagine my surprise and happiness when I won my second auction for only one bid! I am so thrilled with the product and I received it within three days!! My second win: Deluxe Finger Pulse Oximeter for 1 bid, cost=$0.01 + S & H; TOTAL COST $7.00 (Saved $46.99).”
