    I keep seeing tons of ads from these guys, one of the newly popular bidding/auction sites. If the ads are true, it's a great deal, but if it's too good to be true...

    Anyone ever try this site out? It seems a lot like gambling in many ways, but maybe I'm not totally getting how it works. Anyway, if anyone has thoughts/experience to share, thanks in advance.

    google swoopo which is much the same. Both are bidding sites and most regard them as scams. They are gambling, plain and simple.

    my advice: stay away. there are several sites that work the same way and while I don't think they are scams per se they are gambling and require quite a bit of money in order to get a "good deal."

    Is this Quibids site legit?

    I understand that you can get screwed if you bid, lose the auction, then dont use your bid money to buy it now. But if you do plan on buying the item, lets say the ipad, for full price anyway, why not try to win it for a cheaper price? Then if you dont win, just use the credit towards the buy it now.

    And I dont think macrumors would allow a scam site to advertise with them. Anyone used them for an apple product or higher doller item?
