    Hey,

    Midpenny.com is not a scam actually it is a great site. They ship fast and actually ship items. They have several hundreds of users but are still new.

    I have looked over everything about the site and they have given me no reason to believe they are a scam. I won sever gift cards along with several coins, silver was there not long ago. I hope they bring it back.

    They are good people. I have used several sites. I mean about 40 or more. I have watched them come and go. This one is by far my favorite. You should shoot them an email with your trust concern. They will reply very fast. They have EXTREEMLY good customer support. They are very nice.

    I think that they still have the promotion for 10% off bid packs.
    CODE: PENNYBURNERS If this dont work contact jon at [email protected] I am sure he will be glad to give you a coupon code.

    Anyway, always do your research before bidding on a site. This was exactly the right thing to do. Asking her at scams.com is a good way to get good answers. Just remember to check them out before you start bidding.

    Midpenny.com is probably the best of the medium penny auction companies. I am sure they are on their way to the top with the rest. Only a matter of time. Any bets on that?

    Good to know information!

    I still use them. They are good. They ship fast I do not get spammed emails. I signed up for the newsletter and get one maybe a week.

    They send regular promo codes to you to save you money. That is good.

    The last code I received was for 10% off all purchases for a week. Still has three days left. CODE: PENNYBURNERS

    You have to sign up to use it.

    Unlike swipebids or swipeauctions and other sites. They allow you to just be a member of the site. You are not forced to give any credit card info nor are you forced to buy bids to register. Sounds like they really care to me.

    I think that everyone that plays on penny auctions should give it a try.

    Re: midpenny auction site

    I am a very new user too... I checked it out and joined. I like the way they treat you when you get a hold of the support desk. It cost me nothing to join. I know I have used many sites that I will never use again, because they use bots to raise the prices. I think that midpenny is honest.... Guess I will use it a while and see....ing1:
