Happy Monday QuiBidders! We’re excited to share with your newest QuiBidder of the Week, Slava B! It might take you a second to find Slava in the photo. If you look carefully, you’ll see him poking his head out of the right side of the fort he constructed out of QuiBids Wins. Very impressive!

We love seeing creative QuiBidder of the Week submissions like this one from Slava seeing our customers’ videos, pictures, poetry, links to auction wins, dance moves, or any other QuiBids-style creativity really brightens our day! Congrats again to Slava B.! Continue reading to learn more about him and his experiences on QuiBids.

Tell us about a recent QuiBids win.

“The most fun I’ve had on QuiBids was when I was bidding on 250 Voucher Bids. I was bidding against some of the top bidders that usually win most of the auctions that I’ve noticed. I was already assuming that I was going to lose that auction, but I was bidding with Real Bids, so I was prepared to buy them anyway. As my Bid-O-Matic kept firing away, I noticed that my ammunition was declining and that I would eventually have to buy some more to stay alive. Then all of a sudden — that BID button went from orange to gray, and it said ENDED. At first I was in shock, but moments later I felt like this: 

This is how it feels to win on QuiBids.

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

“I’ve given several of my wins as gifts to other people. One of them is my girlfriend. She’s really into fishing, and I noticed that one of the auctions had a Shakespeare Ladyfish Spincast Combo fishing rod. The Buy Now price was $24.99, but I ended up spending the final value price of $2.49 and 33 Voucher Bids, which I got from a few badges, so my total savings was 90%. And I forgot to mention that the auction also came with a Gameplay, so I ended up winning more Voucher Bids that I actually spent.”

What’s the best thing about QuiBids?

“My favorite thing on QuiBids are the Badges, Games, and monthly contests. You can get free Voucher Bids just for taking a quiz or even having a birthday! Games also give you Free Bids, but you would have to either get lucky or spend a little more to get a Gameplay because of the competition. The monthly contests are probably the best thing yet. All you have to do is participate in the QuiBids community and you will have a chance at either getting Free Bids or Gameplays. It can’t get any better than that!

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

“Get familiar with the auctions and the users on QuiBids. There are some users that are bullies and will want to win just to win, but if you’re bidding with Real Bids, then you have nothing to worry about. Even if you lose the auction those bids will be counted towards your purchase with the Buy Now option.”

Anything else you’d like to add?

“My girlfriend first told me about QuiBids a few months ago. At first I was very skeptical (if something seems too good to be true, then it probably is). But one night we were hanging out in my house and she got all excited about winning a coffee maker with only one bid. That moment was very intriguing, so I made myself an account shortly after. The only catch is that you have to purchase a bid pack for at least $60 in order to bid. But then again, who would ever want to go into a battlefield without any ammunition? After I purchased my first 100 bids, I signed up for the QuiBids newsletter as well. Not only did I get useful tips, I also got three Free Bids just for signing up to the newsletter. After a few months on the QuiBids battlefield, I managed to build myself a fort with my QuiBids wins (as seen on the picture). Now I feel like I have the experience and enough firepower to win (almost) any auction.”
