For the past 3 years, we’ve compiled information, editorial reviews and user reviews of the top penny auction websites. In today’s blog post, we’d like to focus on the penny auction reviews which have been submitted by you, our loyal readers. Love ’em or hate them, penny auctions are here to stay and we want bidders to be informed!
In a Nutshell
In short, user-submitted penny auction reviews tend to be quite polar. Users either had a great experience or terrible experience. It’s apparent with each review whether the bidder won or lost and the outcome affected the review. Those who wrote bad reviews though, tend to call penny auctions “scams“.
It’s clear in many cases that these penny auction bidders had different expectations than the principals which we believe are important. The industry “hype” is likely to blame as penny auction TV commercials often promise the World without providing the details and risks involved in penny auction bidding.

Beezid is a penny auction website which has been around for many years. It appears that Beezid is smaller than DealDash and Quibids, although equally well-established. Sadly, over the years, not too many users have commented on Beezid on this website.
As this penny auction review blog grows, we look forward to providing updates on each penny auction as actual bidders submit their reviews.
