Surplus clearance auction websites are a new phenomenon that is quickly spreading through North America and Europe (like you have probably already seen). They are all over the internet in blogs and success stories of people who have apparently bought expensive items at a fraction of what they normally cost. However, we were very skeptical of whether or not the deals on these surplus clearance auction sites were real, so we decided to put them to the test. What better way to find the truth than to conduct our own study?
I wanted to buy a NEW Apple iPad 3, so I was put in charge of the test.
First, I did a ton of research on the subject to find out which surplus auction site was the most trustworthy and ultimately would be best suited for my test. After hours and hours of research I came to the conclusion that iBid2Save was best because of its wide variety of products and great reputation. The way these auction sites supposedly work is that you buy bids to bid against other people in online auctions. If you win, you get to purchase the item at a greatly reduced price. This created an ideal situation for me, giving me the bids necessary to thoroughly test the auction site. This promotion is to help spread the word about shopping with iBid2Save and show people how much they can save with surplus clearance auctions.
Wondering How iBid2Save Can Provide Such Deals?
iBid2Save gets their items from warehouse closeouts, surplus auctions, and liquidation clearance auctions. This is how they can offer such low prices in comparison to retail outlets.
What Do They Put Up For Auction?
I've seen everything from cars to phones, computers, laptops, TVs, cameras, stereo equipment and pretty much anything you can think of. Here are a few examples:
Putting iBid2Save to the Test
After going through a simple registration process on iBid2Save.com, I got my bids and began to try and win items listed up for auction. Before registering, I was still a little confused about the whole process - but after registering everything became clear.
I began to bid on the item I was after, a 52" Samsung LED TV. Surprisingly, I won after a very short period of bidding. It cost me only only $67.50 total for a $899 HDTV!
To make sure this wasn't a fluke, I decided to try again to see if I could win another item - again, to my surprise I won yet again - this time the savings were bigger! I ended up spending $163 for a $1,699.00 MacBook Pro. Very impressive, and I don't think stores can match such deals!
Shipping - after I won the products and paid for them - I received the items in only a few days. Within a short period I had my items in hand. Simply amazing.
My Complete iBid2Save Experience
Research on the surplus auction system and how it works, and how you could legitimately get 95% off retail prices. You buy bids to bid against others in auctions. If you win, you get to purchase the item at a reduced price. I saw there were many users who won multiple auctions and knew with the right strategy that could be me.
After finding that iBid2Save was the most legitimate surplus auction site around, I decided to register with the promo code and claim my 10 bonus bids. I messed up on my first try, and didn't win the auction, but it didn't cost me much, so I continued to try to really find out if this system works.
I developed my system. I started to look for an auction that didn't have a lot of bidders. Typically these were the auctions taking place between 1am-5am EST.
After some trial and error, I was able to win my first auction. After that, I decided I'd try again and see if it was possible to win more than once in a row. This possibility became a reality, and I won my second auction. After this, my bids were mostly spent, however I was VERY EXCITED to see my cheap items being shipped!
I received my items, and they were in mint condition. Packaging was very good. I will never use a regular auction site again! I still can't believe I received these items for such a discounted price!
I Couldn't be any happier with the results
