Happy bidday to you! ! Now blow out the candles and get ready for some hectic bidding with potentially large pay-offs. Happy Bid Day is a US and Canada-only auctioning website which sells brand new items, in original packaging and with warranties, often for much less than you’ll find them in the stores. It does this by selling from wholesale and liquidation, meaning that you can get big discounts.
However, it’s not the simplest system to work out and, whilst many users are happy with the bargains they’ve got, there are a few caveats which you can slip into if you don’t read the terms and conditions carefully.
Unfortunately, you cannot sell any items on the website (unless perhaps you’re a wholesaler with spare stock) so it’s only useful to people who are looking to make a purchase.
The system works like this: you either earn or purchase bids, a token – of sorts – which allows you to make a bid in an auction. If you win, you simply pay for the item and it’s delivered. Sounds simple enough right?
Well, there are a few kinds of bids including “penny bids” which are slightly more complex, as far as we can tell but, if you register and take a look at the helpful talking guides dotted around the website, then you should be able to work it out. Remember: if in doubt, check the FAQ or contact the HappyBidDay team.
We were a little concerned that some people found the site’s systems confusing, though, and appeared to have lost money because of this confusion. So, we do recommend that you read the terms and conditions carefully.
Looking at feedback from users, we were generally very impressed by how happy they seemed to be. You can earn free bids by completing your registration and encouraging your friends to join up. If they win an auction, then you’ll receive more free bids, allowing you to get involved in more auctions.
Many items sell for significantly less than their retail value, some even up to 90% off. This is due to the fact that auctions have no reserve price, so an item can sell for as little as $1.
The site is slick and well presented, and we found the various video guides to be pretty useful. There is a decent range of items available, although, since everything is brand new, you won’t find any antiques and you’ll be unlikely to find pieces of artwork or unique items of jewelry. If this sounds like the kind of online auction site for you, check it out by clicking on the link below and have a happy bidday!
