Beware of the popular online penny auction site, Quibids. My husband started "bidding" on there last week and thought that if his bid was under .50 cents he got the item for free. Free, is a joke. He didn't realize that every bid he made cost him .60 cents just to click the bid button. It must be true what they say about "nothing in life is free."
When I went to balance our checking account today I found a total of $387.90 in charges from Quibids! That is in less than one weeks time. I am outraged. My husband is not the type to waste money like this, and he is furious. This is the first time he has ever used an online so called "penny" auction site and will be the last! There were charges on our account for $60.00 a total of 4 times! What is that about? He supposedly got "free bids" for his birthday. Then there were several charges ranging from .53 cents to $30.00.
This company obviously makes huge amounts of money by betting on the fact that consumers do not know what they are doing on this site. [continued below]....
..... I can not believe they have an A- rating with the BBB even though they have 1145 complaints against them. If you read these complaints it is very easy to see that people do not understand how Quibids work. Quibids knows this and is making a profit off of people's ignorance. Quibids also gives the same "pat" answer to almost all of the complaints made against them. Shame on Quibids!
Help get the word out to people to not get caught up with Quibids. I for one am definitely going to tell everyone I know.
