Do the math.....We are being soooo ripped off!  I bought a bid packet on sale.....for .18 per bid.  I see an IPAD that is being auctioned....every time some one bids, it adds a penny to the final price.  Each bid is worth .18 ......the total at present is $267.82  That means:  26782 bids have been placed for this item....times .18 cents = $4820.79 in revenue that they have already collected for this $529 item, that can be bought at Best Buy or Walmart.....Now say the person who wins the bid....still has to pay the $267.82 for the item on top of the bids he has used up to be active in the auction.  Most people, like myself, did not understand how it works.......got into it because of all the advertising on Facebook....(probably posted by DealDash)  Total Ripoff and Scam....I hope they get shut down.

They're all the same.

AUTHOR: Flynrider - (USA)

  I'm glad to see that you finally did the math.   All penny auctions use this model.  Basically, their entire customer base is limited to people who cannot or will not do some basic 3rd grade math.   

" I hope they get shut down. " 

  They won't get shut down because their is no law against taking advantage of gullible people whose decisions are driven by advertising, rather than simple logic.   Since I see that these penny auctions are now advertising on TV, there must be an enormous supply of such people out there.
