Bid66 Site Closed

At the beginning of the year, the popular penny auction site Bid66.com temporarily closed. Bid66 has been auctioning big and small merchandise since 2009. The company temporarily closed it's site during the summer of 2011 for upgrades. The old Bid66 site auctioned large items like big screen TVs, patio sets, appliances and more. The old site had some dated images and so Bid66 closed their doors during the summer of 2011. In September 2011 Bid66.com reopened with a fresh new site and new business model. The online auction site no longer sold large items, but gift cards instead. Gift cards were a huge hit. Bid66 auctioned gift cards from: Amazon, Wal-Mart, Target, Chilis, Outback Steak House, Kohls, JCPenneys, Subway, Hess gas, Cheesecake factory and more. This is a merchandise shift that I have seen in several penny auction sites. The only product that Bid66 continued to sell from their old site to their new site was bid packages. The site extended their business hours and no longer paused their auctions at night. I contacted the owner of Bid66.com last week and they are hopeful that they will reopen soon. The site closed in order to update some site features.  I expect in the next few weeks I will have updated news regarding the reopening of Bid66. In the mean time you can get more information from their Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bid66-Penny-Auction/156705827704771
