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 love them because I find it entertaining watching Game theory in motion, even if I fall for the same pitfalls as others.

The chance to get something for a good deal is also a big plus (even though I think I am still down from my early attempts at outbidding some power bidders).

I have also subscribed to the rss feed and become a fan on facebook.

I don't love Penny Auctions...Penny Auctions love ME!!! Well The bidders don't, but the owners do! haha! Just kidding.

Naw, but seriously. Penny auctions are a lot more interesting than waiting 5 days to bid on an item just to try to get a final bid in and hope nobody else does the same. With a Penny auction, an item you might otherwise pay $500.00 for, you may just get for $5.00. It feels more like winning at the casino than just going for a definite buy, except these casino wins feel great no matter what the value just for the fact that you WON it through "competition." The best casino games I could compare it to would be a combination of Hold'em Poker with a Slot Machine twist to it.

When I first found out about penny auctions long ago, it was mainly those scams being run in person where they choose the guy from the audience, etc. (the olden days... it's been in a few movies, I can't remember any by hand, but some of you know what I'm talking about). I'd eventually found the same concept had moved online, as most of the sites I looked at following the same concept looked like scams because of the patterns some bidders would use or the way the timers would function, which sure enough was eventually exposed on many sites here on P.A.W.

But as for the LEGIT Penny Auction sites, (ex: RB, BY, DD, etc.) They've given me a new outlook on life, and have allowed me to save enough money to buy that million dollar toothpick from space I've always wanted! Well not really, but I've been able to donate a lot of items, and provide gifts for a lot of people in the family without having to empty out a bank account, lol. I don't want to say how much I've saved, but you'd be pretty upset to find out and realize you could have done the same just by giving it a try.

The Pros:
I have had some outstanding deals come my way, including a 100-ounce brick of Silver I'd won worth about $1400.00 at the time, which last time I checked was worth $1,922.00. I don't think I paid more than $250.00 for it total in bids and shipping (which was around $70.00 if I remember correctly).

The Cons:
I'm now so addicted that one of my daily routines is to check my 3 favorite sites to see what auctions are going through the course of the day and what times so I know to be around. Lately I've been spending more time watching auctions than I have hitting the heavy bag. (that and it's colder than an eskimo nose outside) Well... on the bright side, even if I somehow manage to lose in the ring, I'll still be a winner in one of those auctions! LOL.

Penny Auctions are no longer just auctions... They have become a way of life! Well, not really, but you know... they have become sort of it's own social network to where bidders now interact on a certain level of competition, which creates a certain kind of awareness. I'm pretty sure some of the techniques and strategies created to win can be applied to many other things in life, but maybe not. Maybe I'm crazy... or maybe I'm over analyzing the strategies, lol. Either way...

The Thought
"A Penny for your thoughts? Hell naw, but I'll give you a Penny for that nice Widescreen HDTV or that PS3 right there!" The reply... sure! And THAT's what it feels like.

The Quote
"I Love Penny Auctions because... just like their title, you can actually win an auction... FOR A PENNY!"

Penny auctions are a real challenge...they offer the opportunity to be able to snag a really great deal on some pretty high valued items! The excitement and joy when you actually "win" something is a great adrenaline rush. While I have lost quite a bit of money on sites that I have found out, thanks to this wonderful forum, to be "scams", I have also won many great items on legit sites that have allowed me to be able to purchase gifts for my 4 kids for the holidays that I would not have been able to afford if not for "winning" on the auctions. Another advantage is being able to be a part of this great PAW community.
I enjoy the time I spend here and on the auction sites. I'm addicted to both!

I love penny auctions because of the thrill of maybe winning and getting a really good deal on items like others have said you otherwise might not be able to get. I have bought many bids and even though I still have empty hands except for a couple of gift cards I keep hoping my day will come.So yes it is the over all thrill and hopeful deal that keeps me going at it. Then there is this site that I am also glad I found , thanks to PAW members I have learned where not to spend my hard earned money , being able to come here and see if a site is legit or not is awesome. Not to mention sharing laughs with everyone.So yep yep I am addicted to :biggriny:

I love them because I am a very competitive person and I love trying to outsmart the competition. There's no feeling like winning something you really want at a fantastic deal!!

I love penny auctions because i can get brand new stuff i want for cheapest price possible.
And even if i cant do that i can experience the thrill while doing penny auctions instead of sites like ebay or such..

Another reason is its a pretty bad ass place to let off ur anger haha..!! totally true.

I like Penny Auctions because of the thrill of bidding...nothing's better then snagging an item that's 90% off the retail price. Now who doesn't like that? I

I have just recently got into Penny Auction Websites and I absolutely love them! They are addicting and fun! It's that feeling you get when you win something!

Penny Auctions are the best websites to buy products from hands-down! :)

I Love Penny Auctions because
1. It is fun and exciting way to buy products
2. It could save money
3. It helps you exercise your mind and thought (a lot of planing, researching, watching, studying bidder behavior and so on)
4. It stops me from wasting my time on playing games.
5. It teaches me to be more patient and don't let emotion take control over myself. (I has lost tons of money from loosing my patient)

I love penny auctions because, they have helped me learn how to save money. Yeah winning expensive items for a fraction of the retail price helps. However, when I say save money, I mean penny auctions have taught me how to conserve what I have and to not use it all immediately.
