Yes I have won a bid. It is tricky winning at penny auction website. Check out the hub i made about winning penny auction, it might help you. Overall, I gain back the money I spend. I used 40 dollars to buy about 70 bids, and won an gift card for about 40 dollars, lol. So it was a fun experiences to try. I used quibids if you want to check it out, but I really recommend you reading up on the hub I made or at least reading up on strategy and rules of winning quibids. If you go in blind, you will lose all your money. It kind of like gambling, except you win items instead of money.
