Great site, but just be aware of their trap pages approach (search for quibids traps for more details). I took notes and tallied the '$200 choose it' gift cards for Friday, Sept 16 between my account shown only trapped pages to a new user on a different computer with full access to the site (as a new user would experience). Here are the stunning results:

Final price for all auctions of this $200 gift card during this period on 9.16:

And only three auctions for "trapped users" in the same period.

Less auctions would be OK to deal with, but look at the price differential between the auctions:

Full access users auction avg price: $7.34
Trapped users avg price: $37.26

Wow. Five fold higher. Buyer beware!
