Review – Is Bids4cheap.com a Scam?
- The Bids4cheap.com
review shows that this is yet another Penny Auction website. The good news is the bids are really cheap! Thirty

Some Site Information
The website is easy to navigate. It is a bit weird
though because the auctions are only from 2pm -2 am Tuesday through Saturday. There was a toll free number

site to hit up. There are no big ticket items. I think the biggest item that was coming up for auction was an
IPOD. Maybe over time the website will be able to add more inventory, but my best guess tells me if they add
more inventory than they will also increase the cost of the bids.
It is a fun site and it is pretty cheap so if you
are looking to score some gift cards at a discount and maybe a Netflix membership this is the place for
There is not a lot to say about Bids4cheap.com there is not a lot of merchandise their hours are limited
but the bids are cheap. It could actually be a great place to start for someone that is knew to the Penny
It couldn't hurt to look around. This site is
relatively harmless easy to use and would be a great first site to cut those Penny Auction baby teeth
Number of Items: Hundreds
Overall, the Bids4cheap review shows that this is a
viable site and is not a scam, however not as popular as AuctionResource.org.
