GetAwayBids.com is LIVE - The First Travel Penny Auction Site!
Edited by PennyAuctionWatch, 17 January 2011 - 06:06 AM.
As we ran our first auctions this past weekend, we have come to the decision that we are suspended all other auctions until this Friday 1/21/11. From here on out, we will only be auctioning off one travel auction per week so that we are able to continue to do business. We are also crediting each user that has registered 20 free bids and will still be auctioning off gift cards as well. Please check our site throughout the week for any new updates.
First of all, you have 5k worth of auctions up on the first day. (And similar items throughout the week). What happens if you take huge losses? Most sites start with 25 and 50 dollar gift cards. Hundreds of dollars is much easier to sustain than thousands.
I love being right.

We are not like other auction sites that start out small as we are going for more unique and high value auctions.
I see that went well for ya.
However, I personally could and will answer all the questions you have to ask when the time comes. I did go the extra mile to become a travel agent, and do things on the up and up. I have nothing to hide. (That I know of ;o) My reasoning to do a site like this is to make travel dreams, reality for everyone. We will have a unique yet very rewarding structure and though I am busting at the seems to let it all out. I CAN'T YET! Ugh!
These sites really upset me. They make it very hard for people like me to open a LEGITIMATE site. My own intentions are very high for my site and with every fly by night scam that comes through it makes it that much harder to secure anyone's trust. I do expect new sites to have a few bugs that need to be corrected and you won't necessarily find them all until the site goes live, however, no legitimate company would evade answering simple questions. Sounds to me as if this site will go under quite quickly. I am not going to claim I know it all, because I am far from it, but I do know the difference between good and bad business. Although, I would like to believe they are here for the long haul they seem to be here attempting to get rich quick and appear to be failing at that. Maybe a lack of proper planning on their part as I have been researching for months and this is the first I have heard of them.
Hopefully this is not the case, as I hate to see anyone RIPPED OFF! As far as them being a competitor of mine...All I can say is NO WAY! We are on completely different spectrum's and besides being a penny auction travel site, our business practices and platform extras will surpass what is offered.
Please, if anyone can advise me of a competent script let me know.
