Qbids.com, Q Bids, Quick Bids… What is that Auction Site On TV?

QuibidsYou have probably seen the commercial with the energetic female telling you about a brand new auction site where you can buy high end items for pennies on the dollar. The real name of of the site is not qbids, quick bids or quickbid. The official name is QuiBids.com and they are the largest US penny auction site as of 2012. Here are the official details of the qbids.com penny bid site:

As mentioned above, the official name you are looking for is “QuiBids”. However, almost everyone I talk to about the commercial almost never says the name right. It sounds like quick bids without the “ck”. Qui Bids. (www.quibids.com)

I ask them;

“Hey did you see that ad on TV for iPad’s being sold for like twenty bucks? The answer is always something like:

Yeah, it was like on Q bids (www.qbids.com), or quick bids (www.quickbids.com) or something like that right? What is that all about… there is no way you can buy a big screen tv for $80 bucks, come on!

They are right, you can not buy a flat screen for $80 bucks. Not directly, anyway.

I will explain…

Sites like Quibids.com, cough I mean Qbids, work on a pay to bid model. You have to buy bids just to participate in an auction, whether you win or lose the auction you are spending money just participating. Think of them as a competitive game that costs money to play. You can see more about the penny bidding business model here.

That is not to say that they are scams! Quibids.com is NOT a scam at all. They are members of the Oklahoma BBB and have been for years. (Neither is qubids or qbids or the site you saw on the tube!) You as a bidder just have to know what you are getting into. It is not discount shopping.

Penny auctions like Quibids are games that you can play strategically and there are successful bidding strategies that give you more chances to win than not.

Who is Q Bids or Quick Bid or QBid.com?

The site you are looking for is no doubt QuiBids.com (review). Most everyone almost always thinks the site is Qbids.com (click here) or quick bids when first looking for them.

The energetic woman in the TV commercial claiming you can buy the latest and greatest electronics like iPads, iPods, PS3’s, xBox 360’s etc and household items like the Dyson vacuums or the bladeless fans. This is similar to the ad you probably saw:

As mentioned above, this new site business model employs a penny auction where there is a cost involved just in bidding. If you lose the auction, you lose any money spent on bids trying to win the auction. However, at Q Bid, 100% of their auctions have a “BIN” option. I will explain that more below.

About Auction Junkie

The Auction Junkie, better known just as "Spry" grew up in the country in the foothills of north Georgia. I began playing competitive games like chess and backgammon at a very young age. I began playing poker somewhat seriously a year before Chris Moneymaker won the WSOP and have been doing so every since. Making the leap to penny auctions came fairly easy as penny auctions are strategic games with similar aspects to poker, chess and gambling in general.
