Bidz.com Review

Bidz.com is an alternative to penny auction bidding. The auction format of Bidz.com is what most people would consider a “normal” auction. In short, bidders do not have to pay for bids, they only pay the final auction price + shipping on Bidz.com. If you’re a penny auction bidders who has been down on luck latey, Bidz.com may be a good alternative.

Bidz.com Auction Features

  • Bidz auctions are free to take part-in (there is no per-bid fee)
  • The auction timer counts down towards 0:00. In the last 15 seconds, each subsequent bid adds 15 seconds to the timer, allowing others to bid as well (similar to many penny auctions)
  • The final bidder when the timer runs out has to purchase the item for the closing price plus any shipping fees (although shipping is often free)

Common Bidz Auction Items

  • Ring Auctions
  • Watches
  • Earrings
  • Necklaces
  • Bracelet Auctions
  • Most other types of jewelry

Bidz.com Shipping and Fees

Bidz.com does not have any processing fees on its auctions and typically offers free shipping on orders of $59 or more. There are occasional shipping specials as well.

Is Bidz.com a Scam?

We don’t think so. While we’ve read reviews which complain about the shipping times and bidding, we have no reason to believe that Bidz.com is a scam. The BBB rates Bidz.com an A+.

Bidz.com Pros and Cons

We definitely like the free bid model of Bidz.com and the fact that some jewelry auctions end pretty low. However, Bidz mostly offers jewelry auctions which makes it less appealing and we don’t see the deals that we do on some penny auctions. Overall, Bidz.com is worth a try.

Fast shopping

All my orders came thru fine, delivery took time but still I am in Dubai, not in the States. It took not so much time to bid and I didnt spent time for shopping. There was no headache and cheap.

A chance to get a cheap but cute thing

Bidz.com is a chance to get a cheap but cute thing. For sure, I am not buying anything for 1 dollar, but some items for 7-8 dollars are pretty fine for me. I placed and order recently and needed to make a call because I did not get an automatic response to my e-mail. Payment has gone through fine. Unfortunately, the ring was not available (my size), and they said me to wait for 7 days to ship.
After a week they sent me an e-mail that it would be shipped with a two days delay.I got it this week and now I understand that it was no need for worrying. All is fine. And the ring matches the picture and dimensions.

This is the forth time I won…

This is the forth time I won a good deal from BIDZ. The package was delivered sometimes with a slight delay, but I am happy with quality and materials.
For example, my order 798465432 passed some troubles as one item was out of stock. A girl from a customer service kindly informed me about the problem. She
asked if I wanted to cancel the item or to wait. I chose waiting, and got the order in one month.
I paid in advance and my money always reached their destination. Though, I sent them without a signature.
Being a trustful site, BIDZ sells wide variety of different goods. I don’t see any reason not to bid again.

Super scam

If I could give a negative review, I would! Bidz descriptions of their jewelries are fake. I bought “14” karat solid gold but in 3 days time it started to tarnish! Their diamonds are not real! Had them assessed and jewelers told me that the jewelry is a first class fake!!

Overall it's good

I am long time (almost 10 years!) Bidz customer and it makes me feel strange when people are calling it scam. How can it be that company which is on bussines for almost 20 years scams it's customers?
I would agree if they say that whey face with some issues, but not get scamed.
People shouldn't rely on such reviews.
I have placed 3 orders this year and two of them already arrived.

It took a while but was worth.

Won gold ring for extremely low price on 2-nd of april.
Purchased it and after two weeks was my items wasn't shipped. Contacted customer support via e-mail and Suctomer care specialist asked me to wait one more week. I wasn't really satisfied with this answer but at this price it was worth to wait. After three days my order was shipped. Don't know if contacting cs was helpfull in this case or not but I have received my ring.
Despite delivery delay I am pretty much satisfied.

bidz.com fraud company

I bought 6 different articles and a family member 8 articles the which they say will be sent from 4 to 6 days and after waiting for three months they were never sent in addition when you try to communicate with them it is impossible and recovering your money is harder still, they take the money of the people and someone should do something about it since this is a fraud and I have understood and read the same arguments from many other people who have had the same experience with this company, for me has been very frustrating and I would like find a government department that could do something about it

by az_b on Bidz.com

I won a bid and paid for it the beginning of January 2018 with a delivery date given of 5-7 working days. It is now the end of February 2018 and jewelry has not been delivered and still showing as "open" in the system. Tried to cancel my order but customer service keeps saying it will be shipped out. Emailed Ebidz customer service with no response. I am now filing a complaint with my Visa credit card company to try and get my money back as no merchandise has been shipped. THIS COMPANY IS STEALING MONEY AND NO ONE IS STOPPING THEM.

    corrupt scammers
    My value judgment is that it’s a scam. I bought a ring with a certificate of quality, where I evaluated the “jeweler specialist” with whom this company cooperates. On the site and in the certificate, the estimated price was $ 21,000. When the ring was bought by me, for $ 3,500, I saw a terrible stone, in three days I was at 5 jewelers who were simply in shock. Each of them gave its price, and it was no higher than $ 850! I could not do the return, because I had to go abroad, on a business trip for 45 days. I think that the prices they put on the site are fictitious, they do not correspond to reality. If you go to the site, take any ring, bracelet, watch and look at their characteristics, then show these characteristics to decent professionals. To not be sued, they sign this fraud in very small print, which is almost invisible: * Appraised values ??are determined by 3rd party appraisal companies. These companies are not affiliated with Bidz.com. The appraised value is usually the highest retail value for the item. Bidz.com does not guarantee the appraised value to be accurate nor the ability to resell based on the appraised value price.
    Thus, they mislead customers, these scammers use other people’s money, since it is difficult to get money returns from them, there are many victims on the websites who have not received any goods or goods.

    I have another bad story with this company, not receiving a refund (for canceled order) of money, my second order was a clock of $ -190. I did not get a watch or money. Amanda M. (Customer Experience Specialist) is an automatic robot that responds to the mail, but only once, then you will be completely ignored !!! So this robot-Amanda) promised to return the money in 7-14 days. But, more than 40 days have passed, no money, no response to emails, no opportunity to get through. Completely ignored!
    I think the actions of this company are criminal, buyers mislead, use other people’s money for personal purposes. If anyone has suffered from this company, I propose to unite and apply to the appropriate state structures to protect American citizens from fraud. Since, on the territory of America, unscrupulous people can not do business and invent their own rules of trade and deception.

    I made a purchase December 27.2017. Contacted bidz.com several times leading up to may about the status of my order. Every time a received a generic response stating that the supplier was back ordered and I would receive my order shortly. After submitting another complaint ticket (7 in total) I received a response claiming I needed to dispute the charges with my credit card company for a refund as I was not receiving my order as bidz.com was not doing business with that supplier any longer. My order was cancelled. I contacted my credit card company to find out it was past the 119 days they allow for a dispute. Bidz.com well no longer respond to my questions. I have lost $500 to bidz.com.
    PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM Bidz.com. If you do please be advised you well need to dispute your payment with your credit card company within 119 day.
    Blatant Scam.
