I signed up for Zbiddy last week and was excited to "win" which is really "buy" amazing products.
You actually buy your bids....you don't win anything. In the end, you purchase the item that you have the winning bid on.
But, that's not the real problem. The real problem is this. Everytime a bid is placed, the clock is reset. This can go on for hours!
Second, the products that are offered are ridiculously few. As far as I can tell they offer an ipad, a Kindle Fire and  a Dyson vacuum every day. But, just one of each. Then they fill in with crap like magazine subscriptions and gift cards.
Each bid costs .60 cents. If an item is auctioned off for $86.15 Zbiddy garners $5169.00 for a $259.00 (retail) item. It's a gold mine for Zbiddy and a misleading, deceptive service for the consumer.
I looked up the cost of a Kindle Fire on Amazon.com and you can "buy" one for $199.00. If you "win" a Kindle Fire on Zbiddy for $112.00 (which is the average) but you have paid $99.00 for a package of "bids" you have paid over retail for the Kindle.
They promote that you can "win" products for pennies on the dollar. It simply is not true.
Sadly, the only winner is Zbiddy.com
