For10cents.com Review – Is For10cents a Scam?
- The For10cents.com
review shows that this is a penny auction website. As the name implies the bids start at ten cents each. This is
the rock bottom lowest price I have ever seen bids sold for. If you are new to the Penny Auction than bids are
what you buy to participate in the auction. Unlike traditional auctions where you bid by the dollar or the
hundreds of dollars Penny Auctions require that you buy bid packs and each bid is typically only worth one cent
at auction. While there are deals to be had at these types of sites, they seem to lack the great deals that you
can find on big ticket items like you can find at Auctionresource.org.
Of course there is a catch to paying the ten cents
for a bid. You have to buy bid packs that have 10,000 bid in them. That is a lot of bids and means that your
investment will be one thousand dollars. Oddly enough I could not locate the cost of the bid if you bought it in

bit odd for a Penny Auction site. Typically you will find gift cards and bid packs on Penny Auction sites and
very few high ticket items. On this website there was plenty of options for decent
This website is easy to use and has a decent amount
of items to bid on. If penny auctions are your thing this may be a great opportunity for you. I could not find
any negative reviews but I also could not really find any positive reviews so it is a bit difficult to make a
call either way.
It is not a scam that is certain and you should be
relatively safe bidding on this site.

Overall, the For10cents.com review shows that this
is a viable site and is not a scam but is not as popular as Auctionresource.org.
