Catchbids.com is not running auctions. Score was 703 in Oct 2012
Will not respond to my emails. Terrible customer service. 7 emails over a week and a half with no responses. Owes me items and almost 200 bids that were purchased. I am done with this site. Stay away from this site.
Like the difference in this site from some of the others….like the outdoor stuff! People that run it are just plain, ole, good folks…honest to the end. They try to accomodate in any way they can! I check in daily to see what’s going on….but they are good about emailing you too. Try it out….you can’t go wrong….especially if you love the great outdoors!
I really like their site. Wish they more gift cards to offer, but I won many times, shipping and customer service is great. Never had any issues on this site. I highly recommend it! Thank you Catchbids!
CATCHBIDS is a fun site. The bids are really cheap and they offer nice prizes. Only thing is, they need to have more prizes. I recommend Catchbids especially to newbies because this is an easy place to get started. Plus you get free bids to sign up.
I really do love this site compared to all other sites. this site does have high shipping prices but it is all made up with the crazy deals. i love the auctions and the 5 free bids makes it alot better.! i have won about 3 auctions all received in about 4-5 buisness days. if u are a real penny aucitoneer you really should use this site.
When talking honesty and integrity, this is the site. Every problem is addressed promptly, all items won shipped quickly. Can’t say enough about the auction and it’s operator. Wish I could rate higher than 5 stars
I joined CatchBids a while back but just started bidding. I won the 1st auction I bid on. So far, so good! Would love to see free shipping on the lower end items.
I am going to have to give catchbids.com my number one spot. Wow, love this site. Fun, easy to win, super customer service, and super fast shipping. I’ve won several times here and received all my items so fast, love it!!!!
This is a great penny auction site! The customer service is awesome! They answer all emails in a timely manner. The items that are won are shipped quickly. I would recommend this site!
GREAT LITTLE SITE. I HAVE WON A FEW ITEMS ON THIS SITE. CUSTOMER SUPPORT IS A1. DELIVERY IS QUICK. IF YOU WANT TO TRY A PA THEN THIS IS FOR YOU.NOT A LOT OF POWERBIDDERS DUE TO LEVEL OF AUCTIONS. WOULD RECOMMEND TO ANY ONE. HOPE IT CONTINUES TO GROW.KEEP UP GOOD WORK.
this is a great site everything i have won i have recieved and in a timely manner give it a try and you will be happy customer service is very quick also thanks catch
Alot of variety in prizes. Very honest and quick delivery. Is a new entry into my top 5 favorite sites. The only negative about this site is when they offer promo bids they expire and don’t have any expiration date listed on their site. I lost 25 bids this way. Ugh.
Great sight . I love the sporting goods and the amount of things you have out there to bid on. Promo bids help me to bid at a lower price to. Thanks catch bids
This site is great! Customer service is top notch And they really care about their customers! Some great auctions are listed and they start early and end late which is rare lately. Definitely will continue to bid there.
I am new to catchbids but from what I’ve seen it is a fair PA site that seems to have Gift Cards not found on other sites. And the auctions seem to end at a very fair price to everyone. Ready for my 1st. win.
This is a fun site to use. I have used the buy it now option which is nice and the customer service is top notch…
this is a very fiendly site,but wish there was more choices.the service is great. i would like to go on more often, but it doesn”t offer you much. I’m enjoying myself,and would love to see them grow. a fun site to catch.
Catchbids is a great penny auction site. They have nice prizes mostly gift certificates. And best of all not yet crowded with Bid Hogs!!
I have won several auctions at CatchBids and received them very quickly, usually within a few days. They have great items up for auction and frequently offer specials on bidpacks. On Fridays if you finish 2nd in any auction, you can request to have the bids you used in that auction returned to you. Also, Fridays the win limit is 1 per user so the chance of winning is greater. i would highly recommend CatchBids.
I can not believe the deals I have gotten on this site.
Mark in customer support is very helpful. Thanks Mark 5-stars
catch bids is one of the best sites,it has lots to offer,as well as good service.was introduced to this site from japan fund,and have won serval thins since… thanks and keep up the good work
Overall, CatchBids is a great PA site! It’s pretty easy to win and you don’t have to have an over-abundance of bids to do so. I love the selection they have! I’ve won a couple of items on my very first day of bidding!
I cannot bleive this. I purchased bids from the Japan fundraiser on PAC and purchased additional bids from PAC the next day. I won the Wii bundle for under $40 including shipping!!!! I could not be happier. Thank you Catchbids!
First thing, you have a very nice site which is easy to use. I have been bidding on these Penny Auctions Sites for close to 18 months now. I have seen allot of sites. Anybody can come here and give a great revue in the hopes of winning a contest. But, I would rather commend you for your awesome bid total you gave to everyone who bought the relief package on Sunday to help the devastated people of Japan. You and one other stood heads above the rest in your generousity to this great cause. Thank you for that, you should feel proud, Jim…..
I just signed up for Catchbids and already Ilike the sight. It has alot of different auctions and different items at one time and is easy to use. I also like the fact that thay helped with the Japan relief. A sight that cares is one for me.
I just found Catchbids as part of the Japan promotionon PAC. I’m happy I found it. I watched the site yesterday and bidding was reasonable, site is easy to navigate, and they support their bidders with nice promotions. I look forward to bidding and winning!
Cudoes to Catchbids for the 50 bids, the top #, for the Japan fundraiser!!! Only matched by one other site. This is a great site and more offers everyday. Keep up the good work! I’ve won many times. It gets a little harder as more people join, but, there is a little something for everyone. WAY TO GO CATCHBIDS!
(It’s me, again.)
Nice site and good selection of items to chose from. You never know exactly what you will find here. Not a lot of auctions per day but spaced out nicely to make you keep coming back. Come check out this site and enjoy a relaxing time.
Nice selection of items. Nice to have a PA who sells more outdoor stuff, But I’m sure you will find something interesting to bid on
i recently joined this site and am excited to get a chance to win some great things. i also think the items are a good change for us that love the outdoors, i am always looking for that perfect gift for my boys. so thank you for giving me the oppurtunity to be a part of your family.
Great site for variety that other urls don’t offer. Just won a security camera that I’ve been trying for at a very reasonable price/shipping. Can’t say enough good things, will continue to be patron as long as I’m upright
I just found catchbids but very excited to play and hopefully win something. Looks like a great site with alot of variety. Hard to rate at this point but will do my best.
I have had a great time at Catchbids. I have won quite a few auctions and most of them were with the free sign up bids bidpacks that I won. Not too much traffic so winning is easy most of the time. They are honest with great customer service and fast shipping. Highly recommended.
This is a neat penny auction site. Plenty of variety when it comes to the things that they offer. I love the Sonic Cards and PAC Certificates! The frequency of the auctions is also an added bonus. There are many different times of the day when auctions are running. Their timers are consistent which helps to know when to place that bid. “Taking a Chance” means you’re taking a chance! The bid prices are reasonable and they offer specials through PAC and PAP which makes for great deals. I received my wins quickly. With a little homework, this is an excellent site to win on.
pretty cool site. good looking and lots of awesome outdoor stuff. not hard to win at all so long as you purchase a bid pack and make a name for yourself
I have participated in many penny auctions, I couldn’t be any happier to find a site supported by a fellow outdoor enthusiast. I fish, hunt, and backpack into the high country weekly. The many gift cards on catchbids.com is just what I been searching for. Along with excellent customer services, I couldn’t ask for anything more. Keep this awesome site what is, and thanks for making this a truly unique expierence.
So happy to have a site that finally offers outdoor equipment. Great site with a lot of variety. Thank you for opening your doors.
Im fairly New to Penny Auction websites but compared to some of the others I feel this will be a good place for newer Bidders to gain the foundational knowledge to be sucessful, also the site is attractive and has a good variety of items to be won. Looking forward to a great experience with this site
This site has some of the best customer support around. The people in charge respond quickly to any question and are willing to listen to their customers. Good place for beginners because there is a mix of inexpensive gift cards and some nice premium items too.
I recently signed-up and so far the site seems good. Everyone has an equal opportunity to grab a deal. The auctions are constantly going, which is great, because it can really suck to wait days for an auction. So far its good.
I just had to write another review. I have won several gift cards. This site has awesome customer service. More cards and items to choose from. Mark told me they are working on expanding their grab bag auctions and will label what type they are. Fast delivery. Can’t beat it! Just received an e-card today.
To Mark: Thank you.
growing site ive been on for awhile gets a little more traffic regularly still small enough to be able to win an auction or two win limits low so all have a chance not many items per day but as he grows that will to win limits posted for all to see site wont let you bid if youve hit limit check your account and credits easily customer service great but i can tell he is getting busier over i like the site you will too also on top of sending out wins limited wait he used to charge more for shipping but as the site grows that is decreasing he gets my highest ratings give it a go
I like that they have branched out with gift cards and all. The outdoor theme was a good one but you limit your user base and I believe this was the way to go with the new items. I would like to see more $25 gift cards though. $10 ones are O.K. but today what can you get for $10, maybe even $15. I purchased a Penny Auction Coupon to try them and they have now have a regular customer. Continued success and the improvements made are good ones.
This is an awsome site with usable auction items. Their CS is very responsive, too. Not a lot of competition, either, as it is a newer site.
Highly recommend for the newer PA bidder!
Great little site. Lots of $10 gift cards to choose from. Wins shipped out immediately. Excellent customer service. Yeah, you’re not going to retire playing this site but you don’t have to worry about Mark running off with your money either.
Catchbid I have found had some good item to auction. I have found however that there is not very many things up for auction alot of the time. 3 or 4 items for the day. I would like to see more items. apple tv, video games, ipod nana 2G, and gift cards. Hope this helps.
Just got my first win on that site in the mail a couple of days ago. Can get a great deal if you catch it right. There kind of new so not much competition just won a 50$ gift card with 1 bid i got pretty lucky though. Defiantly worth trying.
I have played on Catchbids and won an Amazon card with the free bids I received when I joined. I found their customer support very nice and quick to respond. The only thing I didn,t care for was the reserves placed on $5 cards as with the shipping fee it was worth the effort to win, BUT, I see that this is no longer an issue. So I am ready to do was more playing.
Great site,customer service is the best I’ve had to deal with.Shipping is ultra fast. I’m glad I found this site.
Site is great. Has a good variety. This is a great site for the outdoorsman. And, unlike other sites, has more auctions than just a few. It is nice to have a selection of auctions.
I’ve played on a lot of penny auctions and none have come close to the customer support that I have gotten on catchbids. Shipping has been the fastest I’ve seen. They are only starting out so auctions are fairly small but seem to be growing. The outdoor products are great. I have been waiting a long time for a site to offer products like this. I hope this site continues to grow. I cannot say enough this is the most trustworthy and friendly site I have ever had the pleasure of playing on. Thanks catchbids.
Catchbids seems like a site that is growing and is trying to become a really good site. I personally have not won anything yet there, but I wish their auctions would be a little bit larger, like instead of a $10 gift card, maybe start with a $15. To $20.00 gift card. I guess they are waiting for more traffic to do that, but doing this would bring more traffic in my opinion. I look forward to winning there to see how fast they ship!
this site is cool they have great products and not to many powerbidders here customer service is great you should try out this site for sure
Catchbids is a fabulous site. The bidding is very smooth and everything functions well. That is important… My questions were all addressed quickly, the response time was far above exceptional! I was leery of the sportsman theme until i looked at the products offered by the gift card merchants-so if in doubt-do that. Wins ship quickly. I do not mind the reserves at all. I think of it this way-some items go for just a few bids-winner still getting a great deal-PA will not lose as much money
and will be around for as long as we want to play -win/win
Gotta Love this little site. It is new and will improve with more bidders in the future. I’ve won 2 Giftcards and they were sent promptly. I like the Friday Promo for 2011 as it gives you your bids back if you don’t win but place 2nd in bidding. Nice feature… a little tiny risk free option! Shipping a little high than I’m used to paying but for it being a new site I can’t complain as these fees may lower as the users increase. I think this is a site that shows promise and could be a daily visit.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience with CatchBids. I have had success in winning items. They offer a good variety of mostly outdoorsman products and gift cards but you need to look out for the reserves. They have a great customer service department and response time is excellent. I reccommend this site for sporting goods not generlly found on most other PA Sites.
Catchbids is a fun site. I’ve had good luck winning a variety of items from a very nice spinning reel to gift cards and bid packs. Some shipping is a bit pricey but when you look at the overall cost, the discount remains in the “very good” category. Not too many cards offered, some selling in the 3-4-5:00am range. Good for nightowls.
Site loads well, and is very easy to understand. The lower-valued auctions don’t get many bids. However, their higher-valued auctions have a lot of competition.
This site is highly recommended in the PAW forum, and their shipping is very fast.
Watch out for the reserves on the auctions, before you bid.
I like the concept and uniqueness of this site. I received free bids for registering, which I like. Haven’t been bidding a lot because I don’t like the reserves on small gift cards. Otherwise good.
I liked the site at first but now they have small reserves on most of the auctions. The reserves are not very high but if no one is bidding then it can be boring. You do get your bids back if the reserve is not met. I would recommend not having reserves for $10 gift cards.
yeah shipping is fast ive won on this site also they have a good variety of items to bid on for everyone not to many power house bidders here so u have a chance
Catchbids is one of my favorite sites. I’ve won a few times, and received my items quickly. When I contacted customer service, the response was quick and professional.
This site is great love that it is for the outdoorsman and that straight up my aly. The shiiping is fast and customer service is great.
Catchbids is a wonderful site! I receive my winnings within a week or less after payment is made. Mark provides great customer service, and gets back with you right away, 7 days a week. He provides complete info for contacting him with any questions (phone, address, email, etc.), unlike some other sites. Everything in legit here, and traffic is kind of low, making it easy to win. So, if you are an outdoorsman, or have a family member who is, then this is the perfect site for you!! Sometimes, there are free bidding auctions for bid packs, so if you are low on bids, that is a good way to build them back up without having to deplete your bid amount trying to win more. I have won a grab bag, a fishing pole, and LOTS of gift cards. I have to pick and choose which auctions to go for, as it is easy to “catch” your limit, if you’ll pardon the pun. Best of luck against everyone else but me!
This is a new site that offers mostly sports and fishing items. They offer bidpacks, equipment, and gift cards. The gift cards are to Bass Pro Shops, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Cabelas’s, Lowe’s, Home Depot and Amazon. My first day there, and I’ve won 3 items (the day’s limit). The bid prices are reasonable and great customer service (got a response to my questions right away, even though it is a Sunday).Current win limits allow 3/day, 5/week and 16/month.
I have had great experiences with Catchbids. I have won 7 items in the last 2 weeeks and have received all as described. Customer service is very quick to respond and tracking numbers for my items as shipped.Shipping is high on some items but this is to be expected do to size and shape of items so bid accordingly. Not alot of auctions daily but not alot of traffic either, try them with you free bids on registration and good luck. I would recommend trying catchbids for those sporting goods items that are missing on other sites.
way to high shipping fee for the items they have up. not very good auctions. but you get 5 free bids to start. if you win with that then great. other wise i wouldnt recomment this site.
