Default QuiBids

Anyone looked at this? I just had a gander today. They will be making cash hand over fist! It's really quite ingenious. It's mesmerizing, it's something I MUST try to saty away from! I always lose when common sense is a necessity!

Default QuiBids

Just read through their QuiBids 101, has some interesting stuff to say, plus always nice to get a MacBook Pro or 1billion inch TV for $.75!

Maybe I'm weird, but I don't trust such sites. It seems too good to be true. I want someone to try it that I know and then tell me how it went for them. Can you try it and let me know? Thanks. LOL

It's no con. A 1c bid costs 60 cents whether you win or not. It's a way to make stupid people poorer. They can sell an ipad for 10 bucks and be in profit at .60 per 1 cent bid.

It's really quite ingenious!

Not the kind of thing to get involved in without looking at it a lot first to see how it works.....Maybe I should stay away.

This is the kind of innovation that made America great! (Unlike that crappy cheese in plastic wrappers, Meaty)

Edit: I just saw a 16gb ipad go for 47c plus $16 shipping. I want one!!

I signed up on a deal to get a bunch of free bids. I burned those free bids quick trying to get other bid packages. I guess it's a timing thing.... I never went back to buy any bids.

Looks to me like it would be best to bid on the ones that have already peaked. Pay more, but lose less bids. I dunno though, still watching. I havn't seen an ipad go over $30 yet.

I may give it a go if I get drunk enough...Yeah, that sounds like a winning plan!

Wait, so you spend $0.60 a bid; "someone" (aka, quibids computer) outbids you, so you bid again @ $0.60, over and over and over?

Yep!! That's why I reckon it's best to bid at the higher level, say around $28 for an ipad to lower the amount of bids against others (Or the quibids computer)

Hey, I'm not recommending this site, I'm just finding it fascinating!

It does seem feasible to get an ipad for about $100 or much less after all the fees etc

With all the OCD shop-a-holics out there - I wonder if the common man can ever get a deal...

The people on that site are the ones hanging outside of Wal-Mart 30 hours before black friday starts...

That being said; there was a sweet "deal" on a digital SLR!

If this works out for them, genius.
