    I just saw a commercial for a site called Beezid.com. It's one of those penny auction sites where you pay $0.70-$1.00 per bid. I've never tried any penny auction sites and never heard of this one until tonight. I did a little research and some people think it's a scam. One person claiming to have never received the item they won.

    The items are up to 90% off of retail and it seems like they could do that if they're making all that money off of people buying bids and I'm sure they're getting their items well below MSRP to begin with. I also checked out their facebook page where members of Beezid were writing comments about how they're bidding but not one person wrote if they received an item or not. I posted that question just now :)

    Anyway, I just wanted to know if anyone here has used this website or has won an item & actually received it. I would never try something new without running it past the geniuses in this forum!

    BlackHat Rulessssss!!

    I'm new to the concept also. I've found that Penny Auction Watch is a reliable source of what's good as far as penny auction sites go.

    Just had a look at the new penny auction sites that are due to be launched and I've just seen a new one called jackinabid.com which looks really cool. They've got an offer if you register, you can get up to 50 free bids if you refer 10 friends!

    I've been doing it for a while, I've won bundles of bids mostly though, and a couple of iTunes vouchers etc. Northing really big though unfortunately. I've came across jackinabid on twitter. They started following me. The site looks really good I agree but not sure whether it is a scam or not, did you receive a confirmation email etc.? Thnx
