The dude that started this site is making 350% on some of these items. Do the math. Its an awesome deal for whoever wins AND especially for whoever owns the site.

The concept has been around for years.

For every auction winner there are tons of losers that spent "bids", aka money, to attempt to purchase an item at a cheap price. The auction site does all it can to offer widgets that claim to offer you a leg up to assist you in spending bids and winning auctions.

Fuck it, just buy the item you want off Amazon.

I didnt feel like typing all this out but I guess I will......
You pay for the right to actually bid. You buy bid packages. The lowest is $27 for 30 bids. Thats $.90/bid. Everytime someone bids it increases the auction $.01... which costs you $.90 each bid. At the end of the auction like in the example there were rougly 7,000 bids for $.01 that made the item sell for $71. But the site got about $1 for each of the bids from a lot of different people. The guy that won it bid on it 23 times, which came out to be $16.10 because of the bid package he bought. So he paid $16 for the bids and the $71 for the "selling price" of the TV. BUT the site made $7000 on the TV because of how many people bidded on the item at $1 per bid.

Look into it.

Anyways. This is the first Iv heard of this. Seems like a good deal if you win.

Sort of like gambling I guess. $20 on Hold em or $20 on beezid? IDK. Ill give it a try and see how it works out for me.

Gambling. Thats a good comparison right? I think so.

Not pushing it for any other reason than letting people know about it. It sounds cool if you want to take the risks to get the item. Just letting people know about it.

It took me a bit to realize how the site actually worked.

Theres a few people on here that know me and would know that I have no personal stake in this.

What are they paying you?

You pay for credits, your 3 dollar credit = 1 cent on the bid, so you are paying 300% or more than the actual price?

ETA- You explained it and I was incorrect. It's still a shitty deal for anyone who doesn't win.

No. You pay $.90 per bid. Not $3.

ETA: Saw the edit. Yes. ONLY good IF you win the "auction". Which is why I compared it to gambling... REALLY REALY good for the owner of the site.. How come I dont think of shit like this?

Well, at least one person won in the linked item, IF he didnt put more than $2000 into this deal. Or you could lower that number depending on what amount of savings for the TV you consider winning......

Oh and I THINK purchased bids are refundable only if you do not "spend" them by bidding... Just saying..

Okay well im drunk and done with this thread. If I try it and get something cool for cheap then Ill let you know.

I find it highly unlikely that anyone not associated with that website would win a bid. If you think about it, they don't even have to have any merchandise on hand, just a bunch of ghost bidders or software to ensure that someone not on the take never actually wins an item.

As everyone else has said - BULLSHIT.

First, the link says the auction was won for $71.74 on 21 March. I'm just going to go out on a limb and state that these auctions are simply restarted every so often, with no / extremely few people actually winning. And look for the pattern: 87.84 and 71.74 - it's not that hard to identify.

I had a couple of minutes free, so I did a little detective work. The winning bidder on the link you provided, "blacknirish", I purport is either not a human being, or is an agent of the company. A quick google of "blacknirish AND beezid" reveals that this person writes up generic 'hey this is the real deal!' posts on a lot of different forums. I'll bet that the vast majority of winning bidders, if googled, will end with the same results.

LOL... well I guess its only an AWESOME deal if you win... BUT... IF you win then... well, you WIN.


Look into the lottery, it's such a good deal. You pay like a dollar and they give you millions if you win. It's pretty much the best investment ever.
