“Everyone is talking about BlueBirdBids and how it’s the best penny auction website on the net.”

Since we are not too sure just who everyone is that has been talking about BlueBirdBids, nor have we read anywhere that it was the best penny auction website on the net, we need to know. Is BlueBirdBids.com a great penny auction site? Is it legit?

bluebirdbids.com

Was BlueBirdBids mentioned by Time, Wired, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, Wired or USA Today? Nope. Penny auctions were thoughbut should they be featuring the logos on top of their landing page appearing to seem to us, and other consumers, as if their site has been featured?

BlueBirdBids is a US Based Penny Auction – So why Malaysia and Colombia? 

BlueBirdBids.com is a recently registered corporation based in the state of Nevada – Blue Bird Bids International, Inc with the registered agent being MD EGER.  (Mardy Eger)  One blogger, as has one of our forum members in the Thank You GreenAppleFridays thread, insists that there is a tie between BlueBirdBids.com and GreenAppleFridays.com, owned by Dwayne Golden. Blue Bird Bids Review: Zeek Rewards Ponzi clone which includes more info and this quote found of Mardy’s site, “Because of their Iron sharpening Iron relationship, both Mardy and Dwayne continually spiral higher toward more successful endeavors.”

Behindmlm.com discovered a possible tie between GreenAppleFridays.com and BlueBirdBids.com, at one point BlueBirdBids was linking to GreenAppleFriday’s Facebook page.

While BlueBirdBids.com’s terms state, “Deliveries are made exclusively to the 50 states of the United States and Washington D.C.” according to Alexa.com, 43% of their traffic is currently coming from Brazil, users in Colombia are also visiting the penny auction site.

Interesting, GreenAppleFridays.com also has a good deal of traffic coming from the city of Medillin, Colombia. GreenAppleFriday’s owner has told us and states in the GAF blog that he has a son in Colombia, an entrepreneur that provides SEO services for GreenAppleFridays and other businesses, perhaps this explains the Colombia traffic correlation.

Why does BlueBirdBids’ source code includes tags for Malaysia and Malaysia online shop when they’re a US operating penny auction site?

MLM Marketers Are Attracted to the Penny Auction Space

Zeekler was a penny auction site that also offeredBack in August Zeekrewards was found to be a $600 Million ponzi scheme and shut down by the Department of Justice/SEC.

Is BlueBirdBids.com operating on a model similar to that of Zeekler’s ZeekRewards?

The website BehindMLM (http://behindmlm.com/companies/blue-bird-bids-review-zeek-rewards-ponzi-clone/) has taken a more in depth look into BlueBirdBids’ MLM program:

“The Blue Bird Bids Product Line

With Blue Bird Bids being a penny auction based MLM opportunity, the primary product of the company is penny auction bids.

Within the Blue Bird Bids penny auction there are two types of bids, retail and “revenue share” bids.

Retail bids cost $1 each, are purchasable by both retail customers and affiliates and are available to purchase in packs of 10, 25, 50, 100, 250 and 500.

Revenue share bids are only available to affiliates and are sold in packs costing between $1000 and $25,000.


The Blue Bird Bids Compensation Plan

Blue Bird Bids offer members retail commissions, a series of mostly recruitment based commissions and the ability to earn monthly and quarterly bonuses via several revenue sharing pools.


Retail Commissions

Blue Bird Bids affiliates are paid a 20% retail commission on the purchase of retail bids by any customers they personally bring into the company.

Blue Bird Bids affiliates are paid a 20% retail commission on the purchase of retail bids by any customers they personally bring into the company.


Recruitment Commissions

When a new Blue Bird Bids member joins the company their upline receive a recruitment commission. How much of a commission earnt depends on what level of membership a new Blue Bird Bids affiliate pays for:

  • Affiliate membership ($99) – $30 paid to the recruiting affiliate, $10 to their direct upline and $10 to their upline’s direct upline
  • Super membership ($199) – $50 paid to the recruiting affiliate, $20 to their direct upline and $20 to their upline’s direct upline
  • Pro membership ($299) – $90 paid to the recruiting affiliate, $30 to their direct upline and $30 to their upline’s direct upline


Note that whilst the membership fees are recurring, the recruitment commission is only paid out once.


Global Bonus Pool

The Global Bonus Pool is made up of 1% of the company revenue and is paid out quarterly.

Blue Bird Bids affiliates can earn shares in the Global Bonus Pool depending on which level of membership they buy in at:

  • Affiliate membership ($99) – 1 share
  • Super membership ($199) – 2 shares
  • Pro membership ($299) – 3 shares


Residual Commissions

The residual commissions in Blue Bird Bids are paid out using a 3×8 expandable matrix. A 3×8 matrix places an affiliate at the top of the matrix with three legs branching out from under them.”

 Looks like they’re promising recruiters new cars. 

Car Bonus

Once affiliates reach specific recruitment goals, Blue Bird Bids reward them with a car of their choice.

If affiliates personally recruit 10 affiliates and have a matrix organisation of 500 affiliates (no more than 1/3rd being counted from any one matrix leg) who have all paid membership fees for at least three consecutive months, they can choose between three budget cars ranging in value from $46,000 to $50,070.

If affiliates personally recruit 10 affiliates and have a matrix organisation of 3000 affiliates (no more than 1/3rd being counted from any one matrix leg) who have all paid membership fees for at least three consecutive months, they can choose between three luxury cars ranging in value from $135,200 to $205,600.”

Ayy… Dubli has been running for many years now and also offers a MLM model. Zeekler’s ZeekRewards spurred tons of spammers “marketing” for Zeekler.com’s penny auction site. They even offered cars for auction, but was Zeekler a legit penny auction? Did you ever win and receive items?

Winner of BlueBirdBids previously promoted for Zeekler’s ZeekRewards:

“Real people like you are winning” well we’d sure like to hope so, but why the emphasis on “real” people and why the boastful remark that “everyone” is talking about them? 

I personally don’t care for multilevel marketing, and don’t believe that it’s the best way that penny auctions should be promoted, especially without properly educating and disclosing to consumers just how a penny auction works and the risks involved. Essentially, the multilevel marketers are compensated when consumers make bid purchases.

The problem I have with this is the way they are  telling consumers that they will win items at “dirt cheap prices,” (BlueBirdBids.Wordpress.com) when in reality winning a penny auction can end up costing much more money than the MSRP of the item up for auction.

The question that bidders want to know is, is BlueBirdBids.com a legitimate penny auction site? Have items been won and received by bidders? Join us and discuss this penny auction in the Penny Auction Watch Forum.

That’s why online pharmacies is becoming more popular over the last years. Well-known are remedies which are used to reduce inflammation caused by inflammation of the skeletal muscle etc. There were only few examples. Did somebody tell you about canadian generic Viagra? Maybe you already know about the matter. Sexual disfunction can be a result of a physical condition. Even when it has a physical why, psychological problems can make the disorder worse. Sex drive problems are so commonly a product of how you feel that there is some to that “headache” saying after all.

    What happened to Blue Bird Bids? I joined in October 2012 at Founder level. I have not seen any activity of the BBB auction website for several months. No news…nothing! I’ve emailed BBB headquarters at least six times but no response. What gives?
