When did you first sign up for QuiBids?
“I first signed up in December of 2011. Not sure of exact day as I watched a few auctions before I jumped into bidding and bought my first bid pack. I earned the Beginner Badge on 1-3-12.”
Tell us about a Recent QuiBids Win?
“I’d like you to meet the newest two members of my family, George (won for $0.24) and Charles (won for $0.66). They are from the Melissa and Doug stuffed animal collection. The company is located in Westport, Connecticut. The plush toys are made from ALL NEW MATERIALS consisting of 100% Polyester stuffing and polyurethane foam stiffiners. The stitching in them is remarkable – very well crafted. The expressions on their faces are super life-like! It’s as if they have their own personalities.”
What’s the most fun you’ve had bidding?
“I’ve had a lot of fun in several auctions with a lot of fantastic wins. But as for the most “fun,” winning these monkeys was a blast! And to wait for them to get here was super exciting. Poor George the orangutan was in a train derailment in Illinois during his shipping but he arrived safe and no broken bones! I collect stuffed monkey’s and knew I had to add these to my collection. No disappointment what so ever.”
Have you ever given your QuiBids win as a gift to someone else?
“Yes, many of them. I’ve given my QuiBids wins as Christmas gifts to my children, birthday gifts for my mother, and charitable donated gifts to families in need as far away as the south pacific islands. This year I have included my UPS delivery man (Justo) into my list of gifts for all his kindness when he delivers my packages. He has 5 small children and they too will get Melissa and Doug stuffed animals! The quality can’t be beat.”
Have you ever purchased something from the QuiBids Store?
No I have not. However, I do use the QuiBids store as a search feature for upcoming merchandise I might be interested in. It is an easier way for me to locate new merchandise that is supplied to us. I go directly to the category of interests and browse from there.
What’s the most bids you’ve ever won from a single QuiBids Game?
“My favorite game to play is Deal Wheel which I have won 86 bids. Not as many as some I’ve seen on the statistics, but was happy nonetheless.”
Besides bidding in auctions, what’s your favorite thing about QuiBids?
“Outside of bidding, I enjoy the QuiBids Facebook page. I have made a lot of new friends on this page and enjoy reading the wins of others. Some of them are amazing! Everyone deserves a good win. The monthly contests are fun to join too. I also look forward to the ‘event’ auctions often offered.”
What advice would you like to give to a new QuiBidder just starting out?
“With the new updated features, I have learned I like the locked auctions feature. The advice I was given was to ‘take time to get use to it.’ That was great advice.”
Anything else you’d like to add?
“I appreciate that just this year, QuiBids has included free shipping into all their merchandise wins. For me this made a big difference in my bidding strategies allowing for me to place more actual bids on the items without worrying about the shipping cost added to the final won price. Thank you QuiBids for doing this.”
