This is a great pa site! Roy and Lee have a long term vision for their site and they are off and running in the right direction....
I won a card on the 27th and received it in the mail today! I won a card on the 29th and received the electronic version of it yesterday. I read where bidders want customer service... you will find it here. They answer their phone and have responded to emails on a very timely basis. Thank you Roy and Lee for bringing a quality site to the industry.

This site will NEVER load for me when the last few min of the auctions start. Very frustrating.

same here. When the site just opened, I had the same problem as you. The site wouldn't load for me even after I tried to refresh and reload the page.

I would agree with the fast shipping although I think they charge way to much for shipping. I won a card and they shipped it electronically too which was cool since I got my won auction really quick. I just have a problem with them charging users $4.00 for shipping when they are shipping some of the cards electronically through emails. I bid on other sites and when they ship the cards to me electronically, it doesn't cost $4.00 for them to send it to me through my email.

I did send Roy an email regarding the electronic shipping vs the cost to ship. I would suggest that you do also. He and Lee are very attentive to their customers!

I already send them an email regarding the shipping when I found out that I received my Bass and Pro gift card through email instead of receiving the actual card. All they said was that the $4.00 shipping was the normal cost it takes to ship the cards out which is understandable if they send me my card but they didn't. I hope they will change the shipping cost if not let the bidders know that they will receive the cards electronically because they didn't mention it in the auction description when I was bidding on that auction. I was hoping they will refund my shipping cost since $4.00 is way too much for emailing a card but that didn't happen.

I asked them to put the electronic shipping information in the product description. I am confident that we will see that in the future.

Same issue and I haven't even registered yet. If the site is up for more than a few minutes it freezes and locks up my browser. I always try to watch a site before joining and this definitely is a no-no for me. Good luck to the rest of you...

Most sites consider it a shipping and Handling fee maybe the fee is just for processing the eCard and the win? I used to work for a company that charged more for the handling fee than I thought the product was worth.... (it was a stop smoking product that just put little holes in the filter.... stupid)

I won a $50 Amazon Card about a week ago and July 7th I received an email that it was ordered. Been two days and haven't received anything. If they at least told you whether they shipped it out or sent it to you via email or what? They won't answer emails and I still have yet to receive it.

I tried that site out a couple weeks ago because I got free bids. I won one auction from that site and they emailed me my gift card two days later. They did send me an email saying when my gift card will get shipped. From my experience, shipping was fast although I would prefer them to mail me my actual card since I paid $4.00 for shipping but they seem to ship out their stuff out pretty fast. I haven't bid on their site every since I won one gift card.

Hello classified:

I am a big fan of this site. I have found them to be very receptive to my emails and phone calls (and I do both). They have answered every issue.

Against my better judgement :P, I did agree to the T&C just to stand up for Roy and Lee!

I must say classified, if you have a problem call between their office hours. Roy does answer! I have called him a couple of times and he has always answered during business hours.

As far as the shipping and handling, on the site during the first weeks the cards were going for pennies. Let alone winning on free bids. Most sites charge at least $5.00 for a $50.00 card. So $4.00 is nothing.

The site does load better with IE and using vista.

But I have had a wonderful time at Paradise! The shipping is wonderful! And they do have great cs! woot
