I too have 'won' 4 bids on Zbiddy. A magazine subscription for 37 cents--shipping a handling is $14.97 (I can subscribe on line to the same magazine for $15; a bid package where again I have to PAY s/h; a vacation and an airfare voucher which must be used with a specific travel agency--want to bet that the travel agent is pricy? If you take into account the money they make selling bids and prices rising to near retail (yes, they cap the prices on some items so they can boast that clients can "buy an iPad for $26 dollars." Even after the cap is reached the clicking goes on for hours and every click is a penny. They are cleaning up on our greed driven stupidity!

I hope they don't charge me. It is nice to know that my available balance was only thirty dollars so they cannot charge me $99.00 per item. So far I am very happy. I got what I paid for and won many prizes. I can see why they charge a $2.39 processing fee. I get things worth $17.00 and only bid .37 cents. I won 300 bids for $15. and something with the same processing fee. I'm happy.

I won 5 stuff, only bought bids one time and every item that I bid on has additional bid like 75 with the item.. be smart to go around the system and bid carefully. What I'm actually here for is to know if the products are real coz I have won a whole vacation trip plus vacay money plus gas money and air fare... like I said I won 5 times in just 6 hours getting glued to the site. I now have 507 worth of bids from starting of 26. So if the stuff is real, then it ain't the problem then, stragedy is...

I see too many links on craigslist from them. Its extremely annoying and I reported them also. Its gotten to the point that when I search for "kindle fire" or "ipad" that 80% of the links are fake postings by them. Horrible company and I would never support a pathetic way like that to get users
If you can't afford an ipad or kindle fire hd that you want, and don't want to use credit, buy it at HSN. It will cost more, but they have flex pay which allows you to break it down into 3-5 payments, and it's not SO much more that you feel you are getting scammed. Sometimes they have packages of accessories that aren't generally available such that you are actually getting a better deal.(I don't work for HSN, but shop there often.)

There are few people who are falsely bad mouthing about zbiddy. How can zbiddy charge you during registration when you never give any CC info to them? They never ask for credit card while registering.
Because the next link after general information is the credit card screen. That does not state you will be charged for anything upon entering your cc info there are no choices of bid package amounts nothing just an email thanking you for your said amount purchase

I am a disabled Sr. Citizen, and the add said that this first try out would be $1.00. I DID NOT select any gifts, and I thought that tis would be similar to Quid Bids...Just wanted some information.

I CAN NOT AFFORD $79.00 WHICH YOU TOOK OUT OF MY ACCOUNT WITHOUT ME KNOWING! I want that $$ back into my account. And I notice that there are no phone #'s
to call. THIS IS ONE HUGE SCAN, ESPECIALLY WITH SENIORS, Get an honest job where you are not fleecing
your customers. I will be filing a claim, at my bank
later today. You guys shuould not even be in a business, that works with people!

It's a scam like a place called quitbids. If you have to spend money just to place a bid your like sending your hard earned money to someplace that prommes you money or an object in return. And delerevrs nothing!!! Hopes and promessess people!!! Like believeing in something that will never happen!! Dont fall for it!! A true aucton is bidded on then bought and you never spend one dime until you won the aucton!!!!!!!!!! Anybody agreeing on what the guys here are doing is probley working for them anyways to lure new dumbasses in to rip you off!! Like i said you should never spend money to place a bid ever!! Well if you loose here you lost all the money you just spent for the bidds!! thats right NO REFUND!!! But why do that just send me your money the hundred dollars and then it will have a good place in my pocket!!! HEHE!!

Try this out, I have never yet received any of the items I won. They took my money and after as long as three months nothing has yet been delivered. That is the defination of a scam and I also fell for it.

My experience seems to differ from those I see in the scam column. Free bids keep mounting up without my paying for anything. I have bid only on lesser items with fewer competitors and won about $175 in restaurant coupons at a cost to me of under $20. Zbiddy has been slow to deliver confirmations to my email, but the won bids do seem genuine. I've used two of them. The coupons come with conditions attached but they aren't severe.

On March 18, 2013 and add pop up at my email site.
I pressed the add they offered me a free trial with 25 free bids, not telling me that they would charge my credit card for $30. I tried to bid on an item with my 25 free bids, I logged off the site planning to return latter. In the mean time I checked my banking for updates to find the $30 charge to my credit card. I called them and explained about the 25 free bids and about they said my credit card wasn't suppose to be charged. I wanted a refund. It has now been a month and no word has from them and I can't get back on their site.
