How long have you been bidding on QuiBids?

“I was a Skeptical Susan, as most. After a few wins, and studying the site for a bit — I knew I had found my new shopping mall.”

Tell us about a recent QuiBids win.

I recently won a 10 Carat Citrine ring. I actually saw the ring on QuiBids’ Pinterest Page [see embedded pin below], and wasn’t aware they still had it until I saw it in an auction. I was running low on bids, but decided to throw in a few anyway. 4, 3, 2 .. literally, with only ONE bid left, I won! I was super excited, and can’t wait to get it! I won it for $1.06 with three Voucher Bids and saved 99%!


Have you ever given your QuiBids win as a gift to someone else?

“Always! I love to shop, and I LOVE my QuiBids so I often use my wins (and/or Buy Now purchases) as gifts. I keep a stack of gift cards on hand for “emergencies”. Recently I gave my son a baseball glove I had won him for his birthday. He’d been wanting one (he’s our little Yadier Molina) and he absolutely loves it!!”

Do you use Buy Now?

“I use Buy Now almost as often as I win. I am a frugal gal and I hate to waste money! That said, while I always intend to win the auction I enter, if I don’t I will buy the item. I LOVE that QuiBids offers the Buy Now option for retail, less bids placed. I call it my “prepaid” discount.”

What’s the most bids you’ve ever won from a QuiBids Gameplay?

“I won 80+ bids on Deal Wheel. When I get a Gameplay, I have a hard time choosing between Deal Wheel and Word Scramble.”

What advice would you like to give to a new QuiBidder just starting out?

“I cannot stress enough: newbies, educate yourself! Not all auctions are won with one or two bids! Study, read, watch! Read QuiBids 101, study the auctions that interest you, check the stats on the item, watch QuiBids’ Facebook page. TONS (and I mean tons) of great info there! QuiBids offers a plethora of information, but it won’t help you if you don’t read and practice it! Also, patience is a big part of being successful on QuiBids! Combine all of the above, add a dash of luck, and you’ll be a Q-lifer, like the rest of us.”

Anything else you’d like to add?

“You can’t go wrong with QuiBids! I had tried other sites before landing here –and I knew (almost immediately) that Q would be my go-to shopping headquarters. I love, love, love that they offer Buy Now and they do so by reducing the retail price of the item by the cost of bids invested! Their Customer Support team is exceptional, their item selection –endless, and their auction model; unparalleled! You, really can’t go wrong! =D”
