19 posts in this topic

any of you ever use this or any other similar sites?

I see the commercials, and I get how it works...just wondering if anyone has ever really used it and what you bought?

Had a couple of people use it and they've got great deals on gift cards, but not much else. Their fascination with it only lasted a couple of months before they got tired of it however.

Lots of people getting absolutely ripped off on these sites. Its like ebay but if u lose a bid, u lose whatever money u bid on the item. Some reported that company actually pays people to drive the price up on popular items.

You pay .60 for a "bid" of .01

If it starts at .01 and sells for "$2" then they clear $120 on the item. Hey I got a $100 gift card for $5 or $300

I've used the 10.00 worth of free bids but never won anything. There is always questions of bid stacking by all these sites and just stealing peoples money. Its basically gambling.

Penny auctions suck, Stay away from them all. ebay, goodwillauctions, stealitback and amazon are safe & legit most of the time.

The problem is they can easily write a computer script to up the bids and there is basically no way you could find out. And every fake bid they make is pure profit to them

    • And yes, Smitty would've been absolutely hell on wheels in MMA.
    • Smitty would've tried to have literally killed Talib for that poo he pulled on Philly in the SB.
    • SSDs are mostly good if you need fast read or write speeds, eg watching or editing large files like raw audio or video.  They won't help much for standard stuff, and are one of the larger premium price points.  They are very nice in that they produce less heat and are more stable, no spinning discs, but you won't notice much of a performance gain for general use. The biggest bang for your buck is RAM.  I always get as much RAM as I can afford.  That will improve performance of everything on the system.  Upgrade CPU/cores next, for overall performance. Again, depending on what you're doing, the graphics card can make as big a difference as anything else.  That's mostly for gaming and video playing/editing, however.  But with more and more video streaming going on, the graphics card can be very helpful to improve performance and quality.
