    Re: Skoreit.com

    I wouldn't do it. I kept hearing Beezid was a scam so I decided I would do some research. It took awhile I picked out a product, which in this case was a camera. I used the same product each time and I always recorded what they went for. I lucked out and it was always in this same range so when one came up, I waited until the end of that range and started bidding. The one I did that on went $50 higher than the next one. That's all the research I wanted to do. It's a scam. Also not I did this at 4 in the morning on a Sunday to attempt to miss the most traffic. So, in the end, outside of ebay or other real auction type sites, I stay away. I would think most penny auctions are scammed.


    It's all snark from here on out

    It sucks. I tried it about a month ago. When it gets close to being over the bids come in like crazy. You might spend a bunch of money on bidding and getting frustrated when you can order it and save the trouble.

    Re: Skoreit.com

    All you have to do is the simple math. Say you want an item on there that costs say $400 retail price.

    It is 60 cents per bid and each bid is worth a penny. so say the winning bid was $100. Technically the site can say the item sold for 25% of it's retail cost but you factor in the total amount of bids at 60 cents each and look at what the site actually made on that item....

    $100 means there was a total of 100 bids per dollar in the final selling price. That means there was a grand total of 10,000 bids at a penny a piece to hit the final selling price of $100. 10,000 bids at 60 cents per bid and that company actually made $6,000 for just the bids plus $100 for the selling price on top of that.

    It is the biggest scam ever.
