All Bids Back Auctions are back this weekend!

Dear SmartBidders,

Ever wanted to bid on high end, top of the line products without the fear of losing money? We got your back! We are bringing back our "ALL BIDS BACK" auctions this weekend - Win or get all your bids back for a select few auctions on the hottest items like iPad, HDTV and more!

Here's a quick rundown of how everything will work during this weekend:
  1. All your bids will be returned if you don't win in our All Bids Back auctions - they will be returned as free bids to your account as soon as the auctions close and you are free to use them in our regular auctions right away. They will be clearly demarcated with a black border and a gift icon on top left corner.

  2. Only paid bids are eligible for bidding in our All Bids Back auctions. You will be clearly shown the break up between your free bids (bids collected through coupons, rewards and other promotions) and paid bids in "My Bids Breakdown" panel.

  3. These auctions don't fall under win limit and will not be counted towards to the weekly win limit.
There you've it - With the whole weekend of hottest products sale and completely risk free bidding, who wants to go out to mall in this freezing weather! Let's make 2011, the year of saving BIG with SmartBid!

Good Luck!

Win Limit Update

Hello SmartBidders,

A quick update on our win limit based on your feedback:

We are extending the limit on bidding on the same product from 7 days to 15 days for high end products (retail price over $250). So to summarize,

The new win limit is 7 regular auction wins (beginner and reward auctions don't count in the limit) per 7 rolling days. Members are also prohibited to bid on the same product (excluding bid packs) that they have won in last 7 days (for products over $250 - the limit is last 15 days) so that everyone else has a chance to win.

Let us know what you think of the new limit at

Happy Bidding,
SmartBid Team
