I've never seen anything about this site on PAW- Am i missing something, somewhere? They crank out auctions 24/7 - Can't find a review on this site to save my life. They were one of the first PA's I found. Havent played there cuz I can't find anything about them except what they put out themselves. even if you go to the traffic sites its hard find anything. Strange.
Just curious

There is a thread about them somewhere in the red flag section...if you do a search of the forum it should turn up.

I won a giftcard a while back from them and it took 3 weeks just for them to send it by email to me! I wont bid on that site.It has way too much traffic and its a bid to buy site so majority of the time you will pay MSRP or more just to win it

i had the same problem. i used the "buy it now" for $200 visa ecard. I never got a response from customer service. i had to contact paypal and file a complaint. 21 days later they emailed the $200 visa ecard. another note: bidrivals changed my ID without asking, because the didn't think it was right for there site. i have the same ID at 7 other sites. I pm'd with the live customer rep and asked them to close my account. they said they would check into about the ID and email me. it's been 3 weeks! no replies yet. just beware, something doesn't seem right.

Hey Max Knite, Hows it going? I would invest your money on a different site if I were you. I have won at bidrivals but it takes forever to get your items. 2 months and counting on some items and the customer service is terrible, they act like they could give a crap. Lots of traffic from India and Austalia. Good Luck to you!

Hey Forum,

I am surprised to not find much comments regarding BidRivals. Or maybe only in the recent days have they become really big headed about how they cheat... one of the two :S.

Example... After purchasing a substantial amount of bids... I targeted a specific item... a ps3. So I decided to give it a go. I first spent two weeks checking out other bids related to the ps3, and noticed they are all won by a bidagent at around the 20/40 euro mark. So I watched the auction to start bidding at at least 20 euros.

What i noticed is this.

1) Some of the bidagents bidded a substantial amount of bids. According to this tool which shows me a summary of the bids in question. Some bidagents bidded close to 1300 bids on this single item.
2) Some of the above bid agents who bidded such large absurd amounts... were also bidding such absurd amounts on other products. Once specific user was bidding on 3 ps3s at one go.... this person used close to 3000 bids.?!?
3) I noticed a pattern on bid agents. 2 Bidagents fight it out. One gives up 'supposedly', and at the 0 mark a single bid comes in... what happens next? The 2 same bid agents begin fighting again, each one wasted close to 1500 bids. When all is over? Another bid agent comes in and wasted... guess what close to 1000 bids.

The same thing is happening on multiple products. Even found a scenario were a user was bidding on at last 5 items at one go with agents on multiple days. And if I calculated correctly, he wasted a ton load of bids...

I either missed the 'lets give 1000s of bids to people for free day', or BidRivals has truly reached the pinnacle in screwing people over.

I was watching some auctions on this site the other day, and I also noticed the same kind of incessant bidding by at least one ID on a PS3 bundle. There are accounts that are using more value in bids than the item is worth using a bidagent bid over and over and over. It does look like something fishy is going on here.

I've been reading this forum for a while and it still amazes at the lack of indecency and integrity that is so rampant. I'm glad that this site exists to help us find out who's still got integrity and who is sadly lacking.

Thanks PAW!

Cheers,

Brian

I was dumb and bought a ton of bids here. Now I really want these boxers: 3pcs Frank Dandy Boxers | BidRivals - Auctions for Playstation 3,wii,d90,iphone,ipod. I figure if they cost 69.00 for 3 pair, they must like wake up and make you waffles in the morning?

I used bidrivals for a couple of months before finding out all their dubious practices. Auctions closed and then opened again, there are tag-team bidders, they allow cheating with their automatic bidder, their customer service is unethical and will lie to you to avoid face. Some users have special accounts and are allowed to win more auctions than normal users. Bidrivals must be getting compensation for this as they are making thousands and thousands of dollars profit off the site. Don't ever bid against martinxx, agill or miraars.

I was blocked from commenting on their facebook site immediately after I had screenshots of them closing auctions and then opening them up again.

If you see a positive review about the site it is most likely from one of their employees. I have seen posts by them on this site acting like a happy bidrival user.

I am still waiting for my 2 wins and one buy it now. They were small ticketed item, but still, I'd like to have them soon. I tried the live chat and they were like at least wait the 21 days and then only contact them. WTF? Let's see if I get anything by the end of Monday. Then I think I'll directly contact paypal and dispute the charges.
