If you live in the United Kingdom, you’re probably familiar with a penny auction site called MadBid. In fact, they’re currently one of the largest penny auctions sites in the UK, but hopefully we’ll change that with this review…
Why’d we decide to review them?
We were getting a lot of emails from our readers in the United Kingdom asking us whether MadBid was a legitimate site that they could trust, or whether it was just a big scam. We did some research on forums and found out that there are a lot of complaints filed against this company. However, by nature we’re pretty investigative people and decided to check them out for ourselves.
One of our buddies lives in the United Kingdom so we asked him if he could sign up for MadBid, purchase 200+ bids, and then let us use his account. Of course, he obliged like he always does, especially when we mentioned that if we won any products they’d end up in his house.
We logged into the account and started searching for some products we thought he’d want (T.V.’s, iPad’s, Kindles, etc…). There was a large selection of products to choose from, so we found three to four auctions to watch and wait.
Once the first auctions timer counted down to 30 seconds left, we started placing our bids. But the competition was insane! We went back and forth in a bidding war with someone for a good thirty minutes. Unfortunately, we had to call it quits after we lost 70 bids on that one.
And it was pretty much the exact same story for the other two auctions we participated in. We just wasted a bunch of bids without winning anything. It seems like there are more advanced bidders on the Madbid.com platform. You can find way less competition with other sites.
We didn’t get a chance to test the delivery time or customer service of MadBid so we can’t comment on those things. But one thing’s for sure, it’s really tough to win anything on that penny auction site, and you’d definitely be better off using BidRivals instead.
