    I just joined DealDash and it would be easy as all hell to collude with two other people to land a couple of big items for each of us.

    It's a pretty straight-forward penny bidding site if you haven't used it. You need to make like a $70 purchase of "bids" to get started but your first purchase is completely refundable if you're "not happy" even if you win items. With two other people you can get into a "rotation" where no one else bids while all three of us are. The other two spontaneously drop out and the third wins. We could do it once for each of us and bail.

    I tried Beezid, once. Kept getting outbid at the last second, by a bunch of freakin' bots. Penny auctions are good for bots, but not so much for humans.

    Nobody bids when there is a cycle of three people bidding (because no one wants to waste their bid). If you can collude with three people, you can easily create that cycle that stops others from bidding... then two people pull out at the exact same time and the third wins. Just watch the bidding going on.

    It's a complete scam unless you collude. But if you collude, you can win.
