a bahamas cruise vacation package they said 1 to weeks to deliver the info or tickets or whatever so im waiting to see what happens, i found the scam/trick when you sign up when you put your cc info in and are about to press order theres 3 boxes with an amount of bids your buying with the highest prices box/bubble checked as if you checked it you have to check on the smallest package option and then click outside the check box/bubble for the mark to dissapear or else they will charge you for bids you didnt wanna buy i won the cruise for 0 dollars and 0 cents cause i was about to leave the page and they gave me 25 free bids so i clicked on an item that nobody seemed to be bidding on purely coincidental, so anyways when you click on an item scroll to the bottom to see what the tranaction fee will be every item has one like all the magazine subscribtions have one for 13.49 which is stupid cause their not even good ones and cost prolly the ssame price from anywhere else anyways i paid a 2.49 transaction fee and i will update this when i know if i actually won anything if i didnt and it was i complete scam well its 2 bux so i dont care but i will be posting bad reviews everywhere

Zbiddy most certainly does ask for your credit card information when you try to register, I for one do not put my info out there so easily, that automatically raised a red flag! So I googled them and found this site. Scam or Scheme I work to hard for my money to gamble it away I'll put mine on laya-way as another person suggested. KEEP YOUR HEAD ABOUT YOU AND YOUR MONEY IN YOUR POCKETBOOK.

I also got sucked into the $99. charge.I am in Canada . After registering it sent me to the Canadian
site. What a joke. There was a total of 38 items, mostly magazine subscriptions and gift cards.Be careful Canadians.

I had gone to craigslist looking for a particular camera that I wanted. I found one at a great price; but was unsure of where the item was located and contacted the seller. They finally replied and stated that someone had just picked up the last camera; but that they wanted to share with me where they found three of them at such a "great deal". They then proceeded to tell me that they found them at Zbiddy.com and how easy it was to win there.
Fortunately I read the following before I checked around on the internet before I decided to sign up there:
"I was in the verge of buying bid points to be able to place a bid on an iPad ,which was already up by $97 something, still going on. Just thinking if i bought a bid points of 250, this will cost me $115.00. Doing the math, 250 bids for a penny a bid has a value of $2.50. If the items bid price has reached over a $100 mark, the item has already a value of $4,600 (700+- retail price) which goes straight to the pocket of Zbiddy, and the winning bidder has to pay for the bid price. Such a rip off. Considering that you want the item you're bidding on, you wont stop til you drop, and you get ripped off without knowing. Please check your math, correct me if i am wrong. Luckily, i backed out before having giving out my credit card information. Why is this kind of modus operandi allowed?"
Now I am wondering if the person on craigslist was somehow part of the scam too??
i got the same exact email from craigslist about an iphone...

The contras are right about the scam. All the pros are from z biddy itself like "our friends from Mumbay

Zbiddy is just a scheme - - much like the lottery. At 60 cents a bid. something that sells for $140.00, Zbiddy just collected $8,400.00 that they probably bought for (even at Retail) $699.00. That's a tidy profit. So what if they go out of business in just a couple months, they will have reaped BILLIONS of dollars from gamblers.

Some of you say they don't want credit card info. Thats funny. I just started registration, because of an ad I seen on FaceBook durring game play on Candy Crush Saga and It asked me for my credit card information before I could complete registration. So I google Zbiddy and came across this thread, and exited out of registration before completion.

I guess good for this company on finding a way to rip people off. But, after reading what I have, I'm glad I didn't follow threw with it. I've seen a few other threads and stuff saying the same thing as in here. So my recomendation is that unless you have money that you don't need or care about then go for it. If you live pay check to pay check stear clear!!!!!!!!!!

I too took the bait and fell for the message from Craiglist. Zbiddy is a group that is out to make maoney and they are taking it from us. My suggestion is DO NOT fall for it. After reading this post, I am finding the same issues. In addition I called to cancel and they reduced my cost from $97 to $24 and promised $100 to Rest.com voucher. Well, this too is bogus. Now they are having issues with this company and are offering me $500 in grocery coupons; well BIG deal. Just stay away and go buy what you want at Walmart. Less stress and you will have it faster.

ZBiddy is a scam. As I was placing bids to win products, each time I placed a bid it would deduct not 1 bid per click, but sometimes 2 or 3. I called them and they had a man log into my account and try to bid and he noticed it to. He told me tech support wasn't in but would call me on Monday to resolve the matter. 5 days later I had to call them. I went through Hell, but I got a full refund for EVERYTHING. It seems like the only thing I won was bid packets the I had to use bid on to try to win, then I paid more money for the price of the bid packages I won. What a scam. You use their bids,(that I had to purchase ) to win more bids, that I had to purchase. Buyers Beware.
ZBiddy a big scam. I am sad to admit I was one of their suckers.

I didn't read nothing about zbiddy before I gave them my credit card number. I thought I just needed to give them that so I could try bidding. I learned a lot sents than. I won some bids but never recieved nothing. My account was charged like 8 times. My husben didn't talk to me for a week.I really got scrude!!!!I talked to a repersinative on the phone and he just wanted me to give it another try. I was mad becouse they were charging me more than a penny and I was the only bidder.

I am a member since a year and Zbiddy has always had justified charges to my account. You must contact their support for help.

Yes, they most certainly do require your credit card information before you can bid. Just go to the home page!

OK. I won a few auctions. Got scammed on a 37 cent magazine subscription for $14.95. But the best is that their credit card processing works fine selling "bids". But they have server issues when paying for won autions. Then they expire your auction. Pure SCAM. I wish I would have thought of it.

I bought a monitor for $3.13. I took me 45 bids to win it which is 45 times $0.60 per bid equals $27. It also cost $20 to ship it, for a grand total of $50.13 for a 22 inch LED monitor...that would be about 66% off the prices I've compared it to. Not a bad deal I think. Do the math people...
Did you ever receive your monitor? I've won an iPad and a GPS a month ago and I still don't have tracking information. I called and they blamed the shipping delay because it's cold in Canada. Scam?

Just thought you might like to know I received my monitor won on Jan 8, last week, my 2 ipads won in December were much slower to arrive. They came today, I was told that with the holidays everything was delayed. Actually the reseller that they purchase from had the ipads on back order. I spoke to the reseller and they have white in stock but the black ipads are on backorder until mid Feb. Happy to have them better late than not at all!!!
