Penny Auction Watch Happy National Coffee Day Giveaway

I was just blessed with a really good homemade espresso, but I still can't forget this super delicious treat from Lavazza that I had the other day:

*Croccantino Espresso combined with the sweetness of caramel and the crunchiness of sesame brittle, all topped off with delicate whipped cream.

Who here likes coffee?

In honor of today's caffeinated holiday, and because all of you are awesome I've decided to start the Penny Auction Watch Whenever Giveaways :).Sometimes when you're bidding late into the night you could use a cup of java:e2ek:, so to help you stay awake enter to win one the following 5 prizes:

Its hard to pick just one, but after over a year with them (and over a hundred wins) I would have to say Quibids. I have never had to worry about getting my wins, they ship quickly and there are still some good buys there (just not as many as before). Even more important I do not worry about them closing down with no warning like so many other sites have.

The Irish Cream Syrup sounds interesting.

I have several positive experiences, but this time I thought I would give a new site a shout out, as they are just starting up and I would like to see them grow.

Last night, I bid on GoBidderGo.com, as I saw something that caught my eye. I have a lot of mature trees in my yard, and the fall is always fun with leaf piles for my children and I, then they become a lot of work to get cleaned up. So, last night, there was a leaf blower/vacuum up for grabs, and I won it for only 62 cents, and 23 bids placed altogether. Now, they also had a beta test not too long ago, and I participated in that as well. I won 3 items, and received them all in under a week, totally free!! Thank you GoBidderGo.com for all of the positive experiences so far!!

I agree with tnvolfan, the coffee syrup, particularly the Irish Cream, does sound interesting. ;-)

My most positive experience was with Nailbidder. I had won free bids from a Twitter contest, then used those bids to win a Keurig coffee maker and K-cups. I love it! That's how I get a quick cup of coffee while I bid away! Oh, as a note to fellow bidders who like gift cards, you can get K-cups at Staples, Bed Bath & Beyond and J C Penny's. I have used gift cards won to supply my K-cups stockpile! :-54-:

I have had some great experiences on labeldoll. They have super fast shipping, great packaging and nice, authentic auctions. After a recent win, they contacted me to see what would be my preference in shirt-either tank or tee? I was late responding, after a particularly bad day..When I told them the reason for the delay, they emailed me back and said they sent me both--with a note "hoping my day would get better." That kind of customer service gets you loyal clientelle for life!

Btw...would love the french press...*heart*

I love my Keurig too! Do you have a My K-Cup filter yet? I ran out of K-Cups so decided to try it and I really like it, haven't bought K-Cups since. Do you have a favorite? :)

I am going to second the reference to LabelDoll.com - spotted an issue yesterday on an auction I was not even bidding on and took immediate steps. Simply awesome. And I love my Keurig's so much that I have 4 of them - one in my bedroom, one in my kitchen, one in each of my offices. All were PA wins too :)

Hah that's great. Are they all the same model?

I have to give kudos to bid66.com when they reopened here about 2 weeks ago. I won an Apple ipod touch with free bids and had it about three days after I paid for it. I have been playing there ever since.

I do like the coffee press....and I feel I would be "smart" to take the intelligentsia coffee if possible.

Thanks PAW!!

I have yet to bid other than the testing but am so surprised by the speed of emails, pleasantness and swiftness of shipping (even if it was an email card it took a total of 40 minutes!!) Wow... any ways those are my reviews and top pick prize would be: Bodum New Brazil 3-cup French Press Coffee Maker 12-oz. although the timmys coffee would be nice:wink: THANKS AGAIN PAW~~!!!

(rainbow56) I think that SpeedyFinger has the best auctions and the best customer service ever. They are so nice and honest. I would like the syrup or the coffee.

Are you sure you can't ship that beauty in the picture? Sorry, dieting makes me a little crazy sometimes. Though it's been a little harder to win recently, I just can't stay away from Quibids. They have a good selection of items I'd like, 24 hr. auctions, LOTS of auctions and one of very few Buy-It-Now options that gives you 100% credit for your bids. Done right, a person is only out the shipping fee if they don't win the auction. The shipping is amazing, my most recent gift card set a new record, had it in 4 days! I live in a tiny town, but a brand new Walmart Express opened last month just a few blocks from where I live and I get most of my groceries there. If I win a Walmart card, I have a little extra to spend, if not, I really haven't lost anything as it will just cost the 1.99 shipping fee.
Id love to try the Intelligetsia French Roast, 2nd choice the Bodum French coffee press. thanks for a cool contest!

My favorite K-cup coffee is Donut House, a nice medium coffee, not too bold. No, I haven't gotten a K-cup filter yet, but I have looked at them at Bed Bath & Beyond, seems a great way to save on the cost of K-cups. Of the prizes listed above, I would enjoy the book, with recipes for coffee drinks and desserts, sounds yummy!
