Keep in mind there are already free sign up bids and free bids on every first bidpack purchase. The coupon I'm pushing for will be usable by anyone from PAW, new user or old.


We get a lot of traffic and buy a lot of advertising but for the magnitude of the auction items, it's pretty low competition compared to like QuiBids or Bidcactus and sites like that.

Hello Shawn, since you are in charge of marketing I would have to ask why you are using marketing tactics like this;

Attached File  chebids 1.jpg   90.97KB   43 downloads

We find this as quite an unethical approach to advertising and hope you plan to treat your members with a bit more respect than you show your colleagues.

You may want to consider changing your marketing campaign.....

We would be interested in hearing what users think of this type of advertising?

PennyPrizes... great catch!! That is just flat out awful what chebid is doing with that smear campaign.

Let me just say that I hate talking about politics. I can't stand listening to it on the news, reading about it, etc. That said, I happen to have a cousin who is an politician, and a good one at that. One thing that I appreciate about him, is that he goes by the motto "He who slings mud, loses ground". I have to agree with my cousin on that one.

Chebid seems to keep digging themselves deeper and deeper (from my outside perspective).

What do I think? I think they have to be open for more than a day to make those conclusions! LMAO!!!!! Seriously, though, don't be upset. I see a lot of PA sites comparing themselves to eBay. And they all say they are #1. Just think, if people are talking about you they aren't forgetting you! :wink: They may also say: Oooh, let me compare the two. They will realize in the long run it will only hurt them.

And BigHumpDaddy: I totally agree about what you said. If you're gonna be good, be good because, well, you are good! haha You don't have to drag others through the mud to prove it!

CheBid, evershawn and "PennyAuctionWatches" have been banned for abuse. They found a way to make themselves admin and actually deleted threats and banned iwontgiveup. If anyone finds out more about them please do let us know.

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 just don't understand the things that some people do in this world... He introduces his site, and in the very same day, does everything imaginably possible to get himself banned and his site red flagged.. Some people I tell ya.

I to saw some awful marketing campains toward Dealdash! I wasn't pleased with the ethic so stirred away from this site. Why so nice above and writing to me that 'your next ad will read to me Dealdash, suck" and just for me since I am a fan of them! I may have considered checking your site, but I wasn't pleased with your tactic to sway me to go! P. S. Mr Swan, you were a complete ASS in assuming I was from Dealdash, I am a consumer, shopping to see were I will spend my money!!!! And when I do decide to bid again it will more than likely be at DEALDASH! THEY ARE A GREAT AND REPUTIBLE COMPANY! AND I'VE HAD ALOT OF FUN THERE, WIN OR LOSE. IT'S BIDDING!

Mrsfurney - can you explain how you saw this ad, was it a Google ad?

I was recently made aware of this ongoing thread here by one of our regular bidders.

Just for clarification - the person who posted here is NOT an employee of CheBid nor was he given permission to represent CheBid in any such manor. This person WAS an affiliate. We recently ended our relationship with him after finding out about this.

My sincere apologies for any trouble that may have been caused.

Hi Shawn, I recently had quite an experience on Chebid. When I saw your site I was really impressed. Lots of Apple computers iPads,iPhones. I was looking forward to winning all of those things being a recent Mac convert. I also liked what you had to say about no crap on your website.I think that was you, not sure but the gist was no crap (your word0 this & no crap that. I thought here's a no crap guy who has a no crap website. So I decided to bid on the 27"iMac. I bid through out the night .Way in to morning.Then I started noticing something "fishy" and since you have the agent chat thing going I thought I'd mention it while the auction was in progress so you or whoever could see what I was talking about. And what kind of an answer did I get?"Does bidding against other bother you?" I'd say that answer was crappy, wouldn't you? I answered "No ,that doesn't bother me.Isn't that what auctions are all about, bidding against others?"But that ok because instantly the auction was over & I lost.No big deal, I've lost lots of auctions. But I've won lots too.So a couple of days later I decided to try again big time for that IMac.Again bid all night long. No problem. There were only a couple of bidders like last time. And again spent big bucks. And again lost on a fluke. The fluke was a jumper.And through those several days I tried my hand at a iPad and several times tried to win bids. No luck at anything. So you can say what you like about QuiBids & their crappy tactics. But had I been bidding there you better believe I'd have come away with an iMac.Because all the money I put into bids would have applied to the cost.With your method there was too much of a balance to do that. But most of all I didn't appreciate your snide remark to a new customer that had dumped a lot of money when I hadn't even accused anyone of anything. I simply said something seems fishy to me.Why don't you check it out while the bid is still going so you can see for yourself. I said I may be wrong but check it out and see.You or your rep snapped right back.That was crap. And that is not good business .So good luck to you. I still think you have the best products on the internet in this business.(if you can win them)
