Every week there’s something new to review on QuiBids! It’s such an active, exciting website that if you blink you’re going to miss something!
QuiBidder of the Week — Antonio G.!
Antonio G.’s a regular on the QuiBids Facebook page and he’s got a great QuiBids story, so he was selected as this week’s QuiBidder of the Week. Each week one lucky QuiBidder wins a $50 gift card just for sharing their QuiBids story, so be sure to check that out!
Speaking of the QuiBidder of the Week…
We put together some useful guidelines to help your QuiBidder of the Week application really stand out from the rest. Check out our eight nifty DOs and DON’Ts!
Things that make you go…huh?
Have you ever —while online shopping— found a product that just made you scratch your head? Well we tracked down a handful of those products on QuiBids, and we’ll warn you: it gets a little weird. From off-brand Snuggies to fake snow, there’s all kinds of out-there stuff available on QuiBids.
Looking for some of QuiBids’ rare auctions?
It’s not very often that we schedule 2X Gameplay auctions these days, but we’ve been posting a few of them lately with only a little bit of head’s up beforehand, and only on the QuiBids blog. Don’t miss out on a good deal with a ton of totally free Voucher Bids from QuiBids Games!
We hosted a live chat last Friday with QuiBids CFO Jeff Geurts! Customer questions and Jeff’s responses are still down in there, but we just compiled them into an easier-to-read post as well!
Starting the month off strong
So QuiBids announced the Vote with Your Heart contest this month —it’s really less a contest and more of a sweepstakes, but potato-potah-to— and if you’ve yet to sign up for the first week’s prize, don’t worry there’s still a little time. There’s also three more chances to win, since QuiBids is giving away a prize each week of the short month! All you’ve gotta do is fill out the form and then vote with your heart!
Making a difference
It was our honor last week to partner with the Oklahoma City Thunder to host a special fundraiser for Pros for Africa, a nonprofit organization in our hometown of Oklahoma City that supports the mission of Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe (who’s pictured above) and the Saint Monica Girls Schools in Uganda. It was really successful, and we got to meet Thunder stars Serge Ibaka (who’s also pictured above), Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and Thabo Sefolosha!
Wins on wins on auction wins
How often do you think QuiBidders walk away with an auction win for just one bid? One read through this massive blog post and you’ll find out that it happens a lot more often than you think — and sometimes for really valuable products! That’s one reason why a QuiBids strategy is so important!
Looking for a win for your Valentine?
QuiBids’ product team picked out some great gift recommendations that’ll make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your special somebody!
Let your voice be heard!
Ever wonder what it’s like behind on the scenes at QuiBids? Tune into the QuiBids blog next Friday to live-chat with one of the guys who found QuiBids, chief financial officer Jeff Geurts! See you guys there!

What all happened on QuiBids in January? We’re glad you asked! QuiBids hosted charity auctions for good causes all over the world, we announced big news for our customers in the United States, and we even took a field trip to one of the world’s biggest trade shows! Let’s look back.
Oklahoma magazine named QuiBids one of its 2012 Great Companies to Work For.
Kind of amazing considering we started off in a dude’s basement in 2009, huh? Click through to find out what the criterion was and who else made the cut!
Some of QuiBids’ Buy Now prices are actually lower than Amazon’s. Did you think that Amazon was the authority on low prices online? Well that’s just not always the case, is it? We dug up a handful of awesome QuiBids products that run cheaper than Amazon’s best prices for new stuff. The lesson learned? Always check QuiBids before you buy elsewhere online!
QuiBids customers tweeted like crazy! QuiBids customers love sharing their wins on QuiBids’ Facebook and QuiBids’ Twitter handles, so we decided to offer a $100 gift card for whoever could brag about us the most on Twitter!
We dished on how to nab a big product from QuiBids.
Did you know that you can look up intel on the bidders you’re going against in an auction? Cool, huh? Anything you’d add to this nifty list?
YouTube’s teeming with QuiBidders.
You can actually learn a ton about QuiBids just by spending some time with tutorial videos on YouTube! We aggregated a few of the most useful recent ones on the blog!
QuiBids announced free shipping for all customers in the United States!
This is a pretty big deal — something we’ve been working toward for a long time now. Being able to offer free shipping keeps us competitive with the big online retailers and keeps customers extra-happy!

The year in QuiBids [Part 1]
The year in QuiBids [Part II]
We’ve received a ton of feedback from customers about the recent QuiBids redesign, and we really appreciate all your suggestions! It’s the site you use after all, so we want to build QuiBids into something useful and easily functional for all of our users!
Achieving that lofty goal means offering options. And if there’s one thing we’ve learned from the variety and scope of the observations and criticisms we’ve received, it’s that it’s impossible to please all of our customers with a stoic, static site. So by handing you the reigns of customization, you can all tailor QuiBids to look and function way that’s best for you!
We just built in one of these new options, and you may not have even noticed it! Previously, QuiBids auctions only lined up in a grid view, but now you can toggle between a grid view and list view at your leisure. Here’s the toggle:
So now choosing between the classic window view…
…and the new list view…
is as easy as the click of your mouse. It’s never been simpler to customize how you see QuiBids! Head over to My QuiBids and you can make other important changes to your profile, such as the notifications and newsletters you receive, as well as what information other QuiBidders can see when you’re bidding in auctions.
We’ve got more about customers’ reactions to the QuiBids redesign coming up next week, so stay tuned to the QuiBids blog for the latest information!
Like just about any place human beings gather — be it a playground, a bar, or an online entertainment auction — you’re going to encounter a lot of different types: wanderers, peacemakers, observers, and the strategists. Unfortunately you’re also pretty likely to run into bullies and unfortunately, QuiBids has a few.
Some call them hogs, others, powerbidders. Often their bidding strategies defy logic, at least immediately. Why spend 300 bids on a Voucher Bid auction only worth a third of that? Usually they do it to gain notoriety, to scare others away from stepping up against them on the auction block. They choose names like XXNEVERXGIVEUPXX or youcantbeatme72 and they just seem to never run out of bids, don’t they?
A lot of people who monitor QuiBids see these users bidding well past the number of bids the voucher is worth, or even beyond the cost of an item and accuse QuiBids of being a scam or a ripoff because we’re using robots or shill bidders to jack up the prices and get more people spending money on bids. This is completely untrue (a third-party audit by Grant Thornton LLP found that all of our claims about the validity of our auctions are true), as we do our best to provide a fair, fun online shopping experience for all of our customers every day, and would never-ever use bots or shill bidders or any other such tactic that would undermine the fairness of our auctions.
Unfortunately these bullies exist as something of an anomaly we can’t really control — we can’t make any user stop bidding in an auction, though we do suggest them to Buy Now when they get so committed to it that they could potentially lose money. It’s similar to warning people that they shouldn’t say certain things in public, but if they really want to do it, there’s no real stopping them.
Anyhoo, here are a handful of recent auctions won in rather absurd fashion by powerbidders. Have a look and jot down some names so you know what you’re getting into in future auctions.
BigEdRed — 119 Voucher Bids for 15 Voucher Bids and a Gameplay
KENNETHWW — 233 Voucher Bids for 25 Voucher Bids and a Gameplay
imgoingtobuyit — 243 Voucher Bids for 15 Voucher Bids and a Gameplay
IAMTHETECHNUS — 344 Voucher Bids for 50 Voucher Bids and a Gameplay
IfInItIWillWinIt — 137 Voucher Bids for 25 Voucher Bids and a Gameplay

QuiBids Review of BuyNow
From the beginning, QuiBids has implemented the BuyNow feature on its site. This is essentially a feature that allows a user to purchase a product at retail, minus the cost of bids he/she initially put into the auction. You can read the full description of it here. On any auction, you can locate the BuyNow feature below the actual auction. Please see a snapshot of an example below, highlighted in yellow.
You can choose to use QuiBids BuyNow during the auction or after it has already ended. That part is up to you. Note that you have up to two hours after the auction has ended to utilize this feature and that only real bids (aka Bid Pack bids) will be taken into account. read more
