Anyone tried GAMEbid?

gamebid.co.uk/cms/

Sore it on the GAME website anyone tried it or is linked to one of those scam things where no one ever wins!

Looks like you enter a random bid and its pot luck if you win! each bid is a quid though!

I was tempted but thinking maybe i should avoid?

Nope, cos you've got more chance of winning the lottery.
Give it a go if you want, but you won't win.

without even looking i can guess this is a scam or 1 of them reverse auction tings

Theres' a few sites likes this. Personally I would avoid as you have to pay for each bid. Clearly that's how they make their money, but whats the chances of you getting something so cheaply. Swoopo.co.uk for instance charge 50p per bid and have a countdown clock. Each time a new bid is made the clock resets, so you can imagine how many 50p's you're gonna need.

Take a look at this for instance:
swoopo.co.uk/auc…tml

Each bid costs just 50 pence, and are available in "BidPacks" of 20, 50, 100, 250 and 500 bids

even though its linked to GAME surely its better?

don't use reverse auction sites myself, but my brother's friend did recently and got a huge bargain.
He wanted a laptop(worth around £1000), he was gonna buy anyway, this site offered the option to buy outright for around £1200 (all your bids are refunded/cancelled if you buy instantly). In the end the price went so high and with all his bids he was better of buying it for £1200.
Now the good part, his purchase also came with something like 100 free bids, so he used them on another laptop(same type), and he got it for less than £100!!!

sold the extra and almost gets his laptop for free!
