MadBid Mystery and Treasure Boxes – What’s the Deal?

posted by Evelina

Last week we had a very interesting customer service call that lasted around 40mins (our customer service line is a Freephone so it was fine). In this call, the customer was talking about his missing treasure box, and how he won it but it has not been delivered. After explaining that the treasure box is not an actual physical box, the customer sounded dis-heartened and sad, until we eventually figured out it was a Mystery Box he was missing!

Does MadBid Scam You – Let’s Look at the Facts

posted by Evelina

 

Back in 2008, the founder of MadBid was determined to enter the already controversial shopping market of penny auctions; however the vision he had was something entirely different to the unpredictable and unclear functions of many penny auctions. So let’s have a look at the why this question keeps creeping up, does madbid scam you.

MadBid Review: Samsung Galaxy S4

posted by Evelina

 

 

The anticipated new Samsung S4 is here! We are however finding it a bit difficult to distinguish the new from the old. It seems Samsung has gone down the Apple route and vaguely changed the design which is still quite bulky but much easier to use while on the go.

Internet

Putting the anti-climactic exterior aside, we look within. The new Samsung is 4G ready which is great because the screen resolution is amazing so the last thing you want is slow internet. Also, If you are planning to buy it off the shelf it will cost £399, which is cheaper than an iPhone5 that is still not 4G ready in the UK so you will be getting a bargain there.

If you like the speed of your internet on your old S3 then maybe a few of these little new features will convince you to upgrade.

Features

No Buttons Required. That’s right, this clever little feature senses when you are not looking at the screen and pauses a video or game or just an article you’ve been reading. Also to flip from page to page simply tilt the device. Handy right? There is more. If you love to travel, this will be the handset for you. The S-Translator will translate both text and voice so you can relax and not worry about getting lost when abroad.

Verdict

If you need a new phone we think this would be a worthy investment as it definitely has unique little elements that will make your life easier. If like us you don’t think this is different enough from the old model and don’t really have £399 lying around, we are auctioning them at MadBid now.

MadBid Ford Fiesta Winner: Selma’s Interview

posted by Evelina

Here at MadBid, we realised that Mini auctions might not be for everyone. So we tried something new, when it came to putting another car auction live, we decided to go for the most common car brand, and so a MadBid Ford Fiesta auction was born. It’s reliable, it’s the right size, not too feminine not too masculine and just the right touch of class. With the decision made that the next car auction would be a Ford Fiesta it was like the MadBid launch party all over again, excitement and office buzz.   When the auction reached over £20 we almost breathed a sigh of relief, knowing it was more popular than the first auctioned Mini. But our excitement was short lived as the auction closed for £70! We caught up with Selma to see how she felt when she found out she won the car.
