BidRivals.com Review Is It a Scam
There seems to be many of these penny auctioning websites all over the internet i’m not sure if its a fad or its here to stay either way i want to educate people on how penny auction websites work from my perspective. I am not here to tell people what to do with their money i don’t like be told what to do with my cash so i won’t tell you.
The date i am writing this is november 2010 so depending on when you join BidRivals things may or may not have changed. At the time i am writing this BidRivals.com currently accepts PayPal payments. If you are going to participate in BidRivals I recommend paying through paypal. I am an advocate for paypal because they have helped me get a refund as customer several times. PayPal as many people know works closely with eBay.com to make a long story short if you’re going to purchase bids at bidrivals(which I don’t recommend) use paypal.
Why I don’t like Penny Auctions
There are several reasons why i don’t like penny auctions but i will only list a few here. The first reason i don’t like penny auctions especially online penny auctions is because I think the game is rigged I am not saying BidRivals.com is rigging their auctions but i personally find it hard to believe that they are not. My second reason is when i do my eBay comparison eBay comes out on top every time. First thing i want to point out is used credits on penny auction sites or non refundable, sure you can use those credits to buy the item but that defeats the purpose doesn’t it?
By non refundable credits it means once you purchase a bid pack and bid the money you spent now basically belongs to bidrivals.com in the form of credits. So once you use a credit you are actually spending your money for a chance to win something. Is it just me or does that sound like gambling to you?. Whatever you want to call it now you get it the issue of the growth of penny auction website. The bigger the penny auctions member base gets the harder it is to win an auction. Then the other factor is TIME most of the winners of penny auction websites spend hours,days, weeks, month’s on the site. Some have made a business out of it. To me when it’s just not worht the effort
Is BidRivals.com a scam
That being said I personally don’t think Bidrivals.com is a scam I just don’t think its worth the time. Maybe if you are going there just to have a good time than maybe yes. But if you are going there looking for a deal i would think twice. Please leave your comments about BidRivals.com your comments helps others know the truth.

I dont know about that statement,because in FACT Ebay OWNS paypal,or is it the other way??Paypal OWNS ebay?
Anything you buy or sell on ebay usually goes thru the paypal system in some way or other and they get money from paypal and they get money from ebay.Ebay has it going on ,and yep, paypal is definately the way to go when buying something from the internet.
BUT,be it known that ebay uses paypal to boost their profits too.they charge for buying and selling from the sellers and they make money from selling AND buying,like a monopoly.
@Floorman my issues is not with a company making profits i’m all for capitalism my issue is – is this fair and/or safe for the consumer. There are stories of people using penny auctions websites getting hit with unexpected charges i personally havent heard any stories about Bidrivals yet but there are tons of stories of this happening at other penny auction websites, people being at the mercy of the penny auction website. Paypal is good at these sort of problems they’ve helped me. Although i don’t think penny auctions are worth peoples time I still want to be fair here i don’t believe in running around bashing companies i prefer educating and notifying consumers the best way i can. That way they can make decisions on their own, people from experience are smart they are just usually misinformed when real people like you and I leave comments people can come to their own conclusions using clearer thought.

Hi,I have been reading many articles over the last month or 2 about people questioning if bidrivals is legit and showing all the figures how much money they are making.I must say i have to laugh at times how stupid some people are.Of course they are making lots of money,thats the whole point.Just because you buy bids does not mean you have to win.Using this site you need lots of cop on and patience,and i dont mean just for an hour or so.I have won many items and so far have have had no problems with receiving my items.There is some great products to be won ,yes some might require you to have so many bids if you want to follow it,but if you use your head you stand a good chance of winning something at huge discounts.By the way i do not work for or have nothing to do with the company but i would just like to say its not your given right to win so stop moanin and play some free games instead.
is it true that people lose any credits (their money) they have used on an auction they do not win?
