review of Penny Auctions Canada & Free bids code

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I was recently given the opportunity to review and introduce my readers to Penny Auctions Canada (they are open to US market as well) I know everyone gets a bit confused on the auction sites (other than ebay) so I will add their "how it works" info below the photos of the bracelet I received, which I just checked and this exact bracelet was at $12.00  on the auction or you could just buy it for $16.00, which will give an idea of how things are priced.

this bracelet basically makes it's own arm candy party with all the fun stuff going on
 My understanding of HOW things work is this, you buy the right to bid... each bid
Bids cost $0.75 each and come in packs of 25, 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, 175, 200, 225, 250, 300, 350, 400, 500, 750 and 1000. so the money is paid before you bod on your item and you may get out bid and you won't get your "penny bids back" once used
this is the way it looks when not on
Penny Auctions Canada are offering a package of 25 FREE BIDS with the code "TOMOSON25" which gives you 25 free when purchasing 25bids

I will be honest that I did not like the way the site was set up and that it required my telephone number so I did not continue on to test the bidding, That being said I also don't gamble really and would be more likely to just buy items from their page outright instead of doing the auction portion...I researched a few items and just buying those items is still a great deal and no hassle of bidding for me...if you like that then you will get a much better deal going that route.
everyone who creates an account gets 5 free bids as well so with the code above you would get 55 bids for cost of 25 total.
