I personally have had a horrible experience with kudubids.com. Maybe I just caught them at a bad time, but their site has crashed every day over the past week that I used it. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and purchased bids anyways. It took over an hour for my account to be credited with them. The site then promptly went down and I was told that they didn't have any auctions going on that day (10/17), even though I had been watching the auctions the whole day. Shortly after that, all the auctions I had been watching went back up to expire the next day.
The next day, the site crashed once again. While I'm not positive, I feel that this may have caused me to lose some bids as it caused auctions to end about 45 mins later than originally planned, allowing people more time to bid on them. I did win two auctions, an 8" plush minion from Despicable Me and the new Lion King DVD which I plan on buying (they're both under $3 w/ shipping and I'd like to have SOMETHING to show for my pain), I'll update this once I get the items about shipping time, customer service with that, etc.
Anyways, my experience with kudubids.com, while short, has been far below satisfactory and do not plan on using them further. I may have caught them at a bad time, but as I told them, if they are unable to handle the amount of traffic they are getting, they need to shut down their site until they have finished upgrading. I know that they shut down for a day or two to try and update, but obviously they did not have everything figured out.
That is just my experience however. I hope kudubids can get everything figured out so that others may enjoy it in the future.
