Starting off, the site had a couple gliches with timers and what not. Most winners/bidders are just a handful of names.
I read a few past customer reviews, and most of them were not positive, but I had 20 free bids, so why not give it a try.
I placed 2 bids on an auction for a Wii. I won with the second bid. I got my confirmation email that I won the auction. I emailed them to please confirm winning price.
Most people say they cannot get a phone # for the site, but I was able to talk to live help via IM and get a phone #.
Has anyone had any experience with this site? I will follow up with what happens with this auction. I'm planning on paying for the item on Monday and the live help said they usually are able to get items out 2 days after confirmed payment.
This seems like it could be an ok site if they would just put a little time into correcting the few bugs I witnessed.
I'll keep everyone posted, but a little feedback about this site would be good too!
I am sorry bad things are happening to you and I appreciate your honest opinions and tips.
There have been so many bad reviews, but every now and then I find a great review of how someone received their wins within a couple weeks of paying for their auctions.
This is so...:(heartbreaking:(....I guess that's the best word to describe it.
Everyone is always searching for their BIG WIN and this was my biggest so far and so close to Christmas.
I think I'll have to take all the bad reviews for what they are and not hope for a miracle. I think I'll pass this win and this site up.
Thanks for getting my head on straight!
I just logged into my account today and my "win" was GONE. I closed my account and got out of there.
WARNING to anyone thinking this site is legit. WWW.POWERHOUSEBIDS.COM IS A SCAM! Do not give them your money!
Well.. I THOUGHT I had won an xbox for 30 bids and about 3.50. Said "GONE" and everything! Even have the screen shot. That was all great, until the bots kept going?!?! :S Grrr
This site is VERY frustrating! I was bidding on an iphone today. Each time I bid a new bidder would jump in. It said gone about 3 times, I got tired of the scenario and quit. Right after that a new bidder was in and nobody else bid after that, the auction ended...Pretty Lame:(
Hi tmcclearen, thanks for letting us know and :welcome: to PAW!
Powerhousebids.com is up for sale on flippa.com so maybe with new owner things will improve.
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.
