www.WinkBid.com looks good. A big plus is they gurantee not to use robots against you unlike some other penny auction sites. But its for Uk users only.

Im gonna give it try :D

I registered yesterday and got the 5 free bid.But they do charge 2 pound for shipping. Are they UK based and not US. I won't prefer to do business with non US based one and also paying shipping fee for a DVD. Good luck Seans if you plan to play there and update us with your win.

Hi Seans, this forum is based in the US, but when we get more users from the UK we can make a separate forum. You are welcome here! :)

I believe that the more penny auction bidders that come together and post their honest experiences, exposing the shady-scam penny auction sites, the less and less shady-scam sites will stop being the majority in the penny auction industry. Stand with me.

I actually found a HUGE problem open to be exploited there, which I disabled myself, then emailed them to fix immediately. They never responded to me at all in regards to it, but they did eventually fix what I stated. But from when I seen the error (which gave me admin access) I did look around and did not see ANYTHING related to robots, which is a good sign.

I think they are on the right track as far as gaining a good rep, but they owner just needs to probably make a regular account and sometimes login from a user perspective to notice a few things. All looks fine now though.

P.S. I also won a game there for PSP, but I am not in the U.K. so I don't even know why I won it in first place, lol. Guess I saved them some money on that one cause I won it with a free bid and have no intention on trying to get it. ;-p
