Top Tips for Winning QuiBids
If you’re not committed, there’s nothing to stop you from leaving the auction and trying to bid on something else. In that case, you’re just throwing money away.
- Go into the auction prepared to pay at least the full retail price. If you’re not and you lose the auction, you either threw money away or need to buy it for the full retail cost. If you think you have an excellent shot at winning the auction, than be prepared to pay no less than 75% of the retail cost. It’s highly unlikely you’d save any more than 25% on the item.
- Always wait until the last second to bid. Why bid when there’s 20 seconds left when you can bid at 1 second? The idea is to not waste your bids and to keep the clock down as low as possible, that way there’s less time for others to make bids.
- Use the Bid-O-Matic—or better yet, don’t. There is a Bid-O-Matic tool which does all your bidding for you, literally. But you should stay far, far away from this, unless you’re trying to bully someone into submission. But if that’s the case and it doesn’t work, you’ve just lost all of your bids and potentially the auction.
- Don’t compete against Bid-O-Matic bidders. If you notice someone has lightning fast speed at topping your bid, then they’re probably using this tool. Wait until you notice this user’s winning bids to disappear, meaning they lost all their money and need to reset the tool.
- Make sure the auction is a “penny” auction. Why pay 2, 5, 10 or 20 cents per bid when you can pay 1 cent?
