I was looking for a TV on Craigslist and saw and ad selling a brand new big screen TV of 69-inch was on sale for $200 describing nothing wrong with it. No phone number in the ad, only an email. I wrote to that email asking to see it. I didn't expect to see a response immediately because it was about 5 am in the morning. The response said that the TV was sold about 30 min ago and she, Sandy, told me that she got it at bidcactus. She said she got a lot of those TV and selling them cheap for extra cash. She told me to watch the auction and wait until the end to place the bid and I will win a lot. By clicking on the link she gave me, I was sucked in to paying $79 dollars immediately. I was very upset and went back to the email writing to the lady name Sandy again. I told her that what she did was deceitful and cheating. First, there was TV auction in the site after watching it for so long. Second, she lied by saying that the TV was sold but she never got a TV and no one would go to her house to buy a TV at 5am in the morning because the craigslist ad only listed minutes prior to my response to the ad. I am very sure that she didn't win any TV because there was no big screen TV auctioned at the site.
Because I got tricked with $79 already, I bid any way and the site let the first time bidder wins something such as extra bid points. Soon enough after two weeks on the site, I won a lot of things but I also spent about $3000 in bid points. I won about 20 trips, lots of ecoupons, eShopping cards, restaurants.com vouchers, eHotel cards, iPhone, IPad, Nintendo, etc. So I thought at least I still make money. Days after I won, I received so many eVoucher to redeem these cards, coupons, etc. It turned out that these eVouchers are completely USELESS. If I use them, I end up paying more for stuff even coupons. The eHotel, eShopping cards, I can only use maximum $25 even if I won $1000 worth of cards. So if I book a hotel, I can only use $25 for 1 time and pay the rooms with my own cash. Same thing with the shopping cards, I can only use $25 for each website that they listed and they only have 4 of them. The shipping & handling charges on these website are outrageous and if you order any item beyond $25, you have to use your cash and can't apply other eShopping cards that you have won.
Regarding the trips I won, I couldn't use any of them due to the restrictions and limitations. And again, you can only use or redeem it once. I won about 20 trips but I couldn't even use any of them. I gave these evouchers away and people couldn't even redeem them. It seems like your 20 trips I have won worth about $5000- $6000 but they are absolutely USELESS.
I also won an iPad, iPhone, Nintendo games and a few other physical things. As of today, it has been more than 2 months and I NEVER received any of them. I called and emailed them many times and Customer Support said that they apologize for the delay but they don't know when the shipment will be out. 2 months later, they will don't know. How can they not know? They can easily go to Apple Store and buy these and ship out.
Since I called about 4, 5 times to Customer Support, they didn't like me and they were rude to me. I realized something is not right and I started to google about BidCactus.com online. I read hundreds of complaints from people that they never received their $25 gift card. Oh my God! this site is a biggest scam ever. How can they not shipping out a gift card of $10, $25 from WalMart, Target, etc. They can easily go to these vendor websites, order the gift cards and send out to customers. They choose NOT to ship out. I stopped bidding for more 2 months now because I want to receive my items first but it's frustrating to see them still allowing people to bid on electrical items, physical items, jewelries, gift cards when they don't have these in stock and do NOT plan to ship them out.
They only email out the eVouchers days after winning and that's it. Again, all these vouchers are completely USELESS and you can get them for FREE or very cheap online without bidding. You can get thousands worth of coupons for FREE every day online without spending a penny on bidding.
This company is a SCAM. They use fake Craigslist ad to trick people to get to their site. They use so many fake ads and scam thousands of people already. Then people spend thousands on the site bidding and they never received the physically winning items.
Customer Support threatened to close your account if you call them too much asking where their items are.
There are people who won gift cards since January of 2013 and still haven't received them. All my items that I won in early and mid-June 2013 and I never received them either.
I think people should stop bidding and report to authorities and media to stop this company scamming people.
STAY AWAY FROM THIS SITE.
