Swoopo is Out of Business

Swoopo is out of business!!! Wow! Swoopo was believed to be the first penny auction site in the US. It was a favorite among some but most people did not like Swoopo. The site was known for using unethical operations. Most people thought Swoopo was a scam. However, I'm still surprised that they are out of business just because they were one of the original pioneers in the penny auction industry and they were such a big site. 

One interesting thing is that if you go to the Swoopo Website, the site just states:

Due to technical issues, Swoopo is currently not available.

We're working as hard as possible to restore the service.

When the site is working again, we will add ten minutes to the countdown of live auctions, to allow all bidders the chance to get back on-line and start bidding. Please check back regularly.

We're sorry that you're not able to bid at the moment, but we will be back soon.

Your Swoopo team

The statement that Swoopo provides is misleading. It seems as if Swoopo is just temporarily down. However, if you visit the Swoopo Analytics site it states:

Attention: As for March 25th, 2011 Swoopo.com has gone out of business.

 

If you were using Swoopo Analytics, the site refers you to use their sister site, Beezid Pro. All Swoopo Analytics customers are now transfered over to Beezid Pro. If you would like to discontinue your account with Swoopo Analytics / Beezid Pro you can email support@swoopoanalytics.com.

Penny Auction Coupon - Deal or No Deal

At Penny Auction Coupon you can buy bid packages for penny auction sites at a discounted price. Every day Penny Auction Coupon (PAC) hosts a different penny auction site. PAC will sell bid bundles for that site only for a 24 hour period. Usually they will sell bid bundles of 25 bids for $5 or 30 bids for $7. The discount on bids are usually around 75% off!!!! If you combine the discount you receive on bids plus the discount you receive on the penny auction sites itself the savings are unreal.

How does PAC offer such great prices? Well, Penny Auction Coupon isn't the one giving customers great deals, its actually the penny auction companies. For example, lets say a company is selling 25 bids for $5 on PAC. The penny auction company really is selling 25 bids for $5. However, the penny auction company doesn't even make $5 off of the bids. PAC takes a $2 commission for each bid bundle sold, so the penny auction company really only makes $3 off each bid package sold. 

But why would a penny auction company want to sell bids for so cheap? New customers! As the competition grows in the penny auction industry, new and existing sites are fighting hard for new customers. They hope that if you try their site, you will come back. This is a very good assumption. 

Penny Auction Coupon is in fact a deal. It is a good deal for penny auction companies as it brings the sites new customers. It is also a good deal for customers as they get great deals on bid bundles.

For more deals you can also visit  Penny Auction Promo (PAP). Penny Auction Promo is owned by the same people that run PAC. It also runs in a similar fashion only instead of buying 25 bids for $5 most of the offers are "buy one bid pack, get one free".

Get Twice as Lucky on 7th Bid

As an avid penny auction fan, I love to try new penny auction sites. I came across an amazing penny auction site called 7thBid.com and purchased discounted bids at Penny Auction Coupon. I have heard nothing but good things about this website and had to try it for myself. Let me tell you, I tried it and loved it! Since I was new to the site, I started small and bid on a gift card. The site was easy to use and fun.

Now let me tell you how you can get twice as lucky on 7thBid. The number 7 is a lucky number at 7thBid. At 7thBid, every 7th bid bundle that is purchased is free. Yes, free!!! Every bid package order that is received by the 7thBid system is entered into a database. Every 7th order is fully refunded to the 7th customer via PayPal. This luck does not end on just the 7th bid bundle purchased but is continuous. Not only can you get a thrill through 7thBid's penny auctions, but you can also get a rush just buying bid bundles and hoping to be the 7th person to purchase a bid pack. 

If you want to try 7thBid for yourself you can use the coupon code: GIMME10. This coupon code is worth 10% extra bids when you order a bid bundle. Just enter GIMME10 in the message line on your PayPal payment and 7thBid will add 10% extra bids.

Quibids Site Down

As many of you probably noticed, the Quibids website was having some problems yesterday. It was a little frustrating having auctions randomly pause. I also had issues with my account information. When I tried to look at my watch list, the link took me to a Google search. However, Quibids has stated that the problems are resolved. As of today there does not seem to be any more problems. I am glad that Quibids could get this situation resolved as quickly as they did.

If you had any problems with the Quibids site yesterday between the time of 10:00am - 1:00pm CST please contact Quibids Customer Support.
