Bid Cactus Coupons
Posted on Friday, February 11th, 2011 at 12:10 pm
You might not think that you could use coupons on an auction website, but with Bid Cactus you can. Bid Cactus coupons can save you even more off of your winning bid on great products.
The way Bid Cactus coupons usually work is that they offer an extra percentage off when you win your bids at certain times of the day, usually those times that see less Internet traffic. This is a good thing two ways. Not only do you get that great discount on your bid, but you also have less competition, making it even more likely to win your bid and get a great deal on anything that you find. It is a win-win situation.
All of the Bid Cactus coupons that I have seen offered, give you the discount if you bid in the early evening or in the middle of the night. The discount tends to be the same no matter which time period, so choose the one that works best for you.
You will need an actual coupon code for the discounts, so pay attention. Just clicking on a coupon link for Bid Cactus may not work to get you your discount.
Most of the items that seem to be offered on Bid Cactus are brand new quality items. On a recent auction, for example, there was a Celestron Spotting Scope Kit, a few different Xbox 360 games and more. All of these items start out their bids at a penny.
One of the great things about Bid Cactus is the gift cards that are available to win. You could get a $100 gift card to target for only $25, for example. A Nordstrom card I spotted had a value of $50 and went for only $.22–yes that is cents!
Other available gift cards include Applebees, iTunes, Best Buy and mystery card bundles. If you shop often at certain stores, such as Target, it could really make a lot of sense to bid on a gift card, especially if you use a Bid Cactus coupon when you win that card!
There are a couple of things that you do have to be careful about when using Bid Cactus. First of all, the bid amounts can be deceiving. That is because you first have to purchase your bids in order to actually bid on anything. Bids come in packs of 30, 50, 200, etc. Each big costs $.75 but will appear as a bid of $.01 toward an item.
The next thing to know is that once you place a bid, that bid is considered used and you won’t get it back. So, if you bid two bids on an item but don’t win it, then you will lose those two bids or the equivalent of $1.50. It can still be a great deal. The Norstrom card I mentioned above ultimate cost the bidder paid was only $16.50.
