    I just saw it on AT last night. Sounds fishy. I haven't checked the site yet though.

    dont waste your time or money. I have seen sites like this before with other merchandise and its a B!TCH to win. Each item starts at a penny. Once a bid is placed then it add's a penny and time onto the item. So if 5 bids are placed at once, then 5 cents is added along with about 50 seconds. The only way there is a winner is if the time runs out because people stop bidding or if it reaches the weekly end date. If it is set up the same way as the other websites, then people can set automatic bidding sequences. That allows them to set particular times for them to bid. I personally wouldn't waste my time or money on it. You can get stuff cheap IF you win and that is a big IF

    Default pricey

    My wife saw a commercial for quibids,kinda the same. You actually have to buy bids to get into the high priced items. And they aren't cheap! And you could waste them all and be out 20+ dollars and have nothing to show for it. Just my 2 cents. Hope its helpful. Tom.

    You pay for each bid anywhere from 30 cents to over a dollar depending on the site. If you bid and someone else bids after you, you just lost your bid and the cost of it.

    I was sure it was a scam but I could always be wrong. So I asked the experts and got a great answer. DON'T WASTE MY MONEY.

    They have similar rubbish here. One quotes that even if you don't win, they give you a discount based on the bids you make. Just a con......
