Has anyone ever used ArrowOutlet?

User Avatar
I have - I won an iPad on my first try actually, but I know some people are not as lucky. Support was very fast - emailed me right after I won - and it was shipped that day. It's legit and you can win some great deals here. Each item starts at $0, and each bid raises the price of the product 5 cents and adds 15 seconds to the counter. Each bid costs $0.50. This means that if you are one of the few bidders on an auction, you can win it for just a few dollars since the timer counts down. They also have a Buy It Now feature so that the bids you use on an auction can be used for a discount if you buy the actual product. So if you spend 10 bids on an auction for a $30 item, you get a $4 discount on the item and can buy it for $26. So overall I believe it is safe to bid on the site if you want the products they are selling. If you place a lot of bids you can still buy the product at a discount, and you won't lose any money. Their prices are very good and are pretty much the same as Amazon prices. It's probably a good idea to start out slow and learn how to bid on the site well. Lots of veterans of the site agree about this. Learn to use the site features to master the bidding and you will do better in the long run. Then you can start bidding on more competitive auctions with bigger deals. Long story short, you just have to be careful and watch your auctions carefully and bid responsibly. Here are tips I found at another site: Answer 1 To me Arrow Outlet is NOT fake because a) they are not using fake bidders and b) they actually ship the items. When I found Arrow Outlet new just like you did I watched for a while and it didn't seem like they use fake bidders. I bid on a $10 giftcard and lost, and then bid on another $10 giftcard and won it for around a buck. I got it about a week later and I was happy so I kept on bidding. HOWEVER you have to be careful to bid carefully and responsibly (like drinking). My advice is start out with some small items so you get a feel for how the site works, learn to use the bidomatic, etc. If you bid smart you can win a lot, but you have to learn first. I started off losing and now I just won an iPad. Here are some of my tips: 1) use bidomatic to pressure your opponent. When they see you bidding against them a lot they will back off. 2) you have to use money to make money! I spent around 200 bids to win a Wii but doggone it I won it by pushing away everyone else. if you give up then you lose the auction but if you push through you can win it. 3) start small small small. Win a keychain or flashlight first - it's cool and you won't spend as much money learning. Then you'll feel good about it and be more confident. The rest you will have to find out yourself otherwise you, the Answers.com reader, might beat me one day ;) Answer 2 the site gets 50 cents for each bid and raises the price by 10 cents...so they get lots of money on some items and lose money on others...in summary i don't think its a scam but like he said you should probably be careful in the beginning...my uncle got really good at bidding and won like a PS3 and iPad and tv and has an awesome living room now ANSWER 3 The site is actually a scam. There's pretty much no way to win. The prices are misleading and most likely you'll end up paying A LOT more than the bid price. For example, 7.02 USS is actually 351 bids which costs 175.5 dollars. So if you win that item, you actually end up paying 175.5+7.02+shipping+ (#bids/2)dollars you have done on any similar item before giving up on them. Is this even legal? I'm not sure. I wonder if legal action has been taken against this company already. Well, I tried, but I cancelled my account and asked for a refund as soon as saw what this site was about. I really hope consumers realize this is a HUGE trick on the American people and the world at large. Shame on you arrowoutlet.com. I hope you get closed down asap.
Asked in Online Shopping, Logos

Where can you buy team-logo clothing online?

User Avatar
My opinion is the team's shop itself if you want authentic, true clothes without the thought of being deceived. For instance, if you wanted a Sacramento Kings jersey, just go to the website called Kings.com. You can also try NBA, NFL, MLB, NHL, NCAA, and MLS (with the ".com" at the end). You can find it on ebay, Champs and the site for the league which the team is in such as the NFL or NBA You can also try places like Modell's Sporting Goods. I believe the website is called Modells. They always have awesome prices for everything. The website called CAFEPRESS is an AWESOME site for any type of clothing with logos; no matter what your cause. They have team logos, presidential, green earth, etc. Check it out and see what you find. Teamsportswear! You can cutomize it yourself! hsn has genuine team apparel for men and women. Also wall hangings and stadium blanketsFor playoffs and championships, winning teams items are generally available in 1 or 2 hrs post-game for ordering. View the related links below for more sites.

What is your experience with zambid.com?

User Avatar
**WARNING** Last night, I decided that I was going to win an iPad no matter what it took... I bought $90 worth of bids and decided that I would not stop bidding until I won. After watching the site for about a week, I found that the average selling price of iPads was $90-$120. I figured that I would pay no more than $150 for it. Literally, I bid from 10:30 p.m.-4:30 a.m., eventually spending $150 in bids, before the system "lagged out" and had someone else win. By that point, the bid was up to $265 (unheard of for zambid.com). Based on readings from other forums, the site hires people to bid and YOU WILL NEVER WIN. It is an absolute SCAM!

What is the watch list on eBay?

User Avatar
Your "watch list" is where you put items that you are interested in purchasing. It lets you check out any current bids at a quick glance to see if the price stays within your limit before making your own bid. It's useful for keeping things that you see and like and want to look at again before deciding if you want to bid or not.

What is PayPal and how does it work?

User Avatar
PayPal is an online account that allows you to receive and send money electronically with your bank account and credit cards. It is owned by eBay, and is used mainly for buying and selling through auctions. When using a personal PayPal account, simply link your PayPal account to your bank account (either savings or checking). When you make a purchase that allows you to pay with PayPal, enter your log-in information to sign into PayPal and then click "Buy." PayPal will automatically transfer the money out of your linked account and to the seller. You register your bank/checking account details (and can also register your credit/debit card details) with PayPal. This enables PayPal to take money from your bank or card and then transfer that money to anyone that you might buy something from. In this way, the seller has no access to your financial details. You can also use your PayPal account to transfer funds to a friend or family member. It costs nothing to send/spend money using PayPal. It costs nothing to receive money into a personal account, as long as the funds are sourced from a PayPal balance or a bank account. There is a charge if the payment is card-funded. If you have a Premier or Business PayPal account, you are charged a fee on every payment that you receive. Charges can be found on your local PayPal site by searching in the help section. Go to Paypal.com -- you will need a checking account -- and enter your information. PayPal will then deposit a small amount (under $1) into your checking account. Once you have verified with your bank the deposit from PayPal, then go to Paypal.com and there will be a message for you to confirm that you received the deposit. It's an online payment solution. The service allows anyone to pay in any way they prefer, including through credit cards, bank accounts, buyer credit or account balances, without sharing financial information. PayPal enables global e-commerce by making payments possible across different locations, currencies, and languages. Go to the main PayPal site, www.paypal.com, and click on the "sign up" button that you see on the homepage. On the following page, from the drop-down options select your country and then select the account type that you want to open. A "Personal" account is most suitable if you only want to use the account for buying, while a "Premier" account is best if you want to both buy and sell online. Next you need to enter your email address, choose a password and enter your name, address, and phone details, read the terms and then click on the "agree and create account" button. Once you've opened your account, you can add your bank account and/or credit card details.

What are some tips for Internet auction sellers?

User Avatar
If you want to sell anything on the Internet it is essential you learn how to advertise yourself and your items. Begin by starting a blog. Sign up with Google and write your own free blog on Blogger. Place free ads on Oodle and similar sites. Join and participate in forums that help online sellers. Of course you must learn how to write great titles and descriptions for your items, as well as supplying many excellent and relevant photographs. Hope these few points get you started on a successful career as an online seller. When setting the minimum bid for your item, choose the lowest price which is fair and which you are willing to accept. Compare prices other sellers are listing for minimum bids on items similar to yours. You want to be competitive and fair. Also, post the types of payment you accept. Never ship until you get paid. Never accept a payment marked as a gift and always ship with a tracking number.

Asked in Online Shopping, Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Where is the cheapest place to buy new diary of a wimpy kids books hardback covers including all the series?

User Avatar
It depends on where you live. Many bookstores will discount the hardcover once the paperback comes out. There are also discount bookstores like Amazon.com, bookworm.com and even sites like eBay where books are offered for sale at deep discounts. There are boxed sets for sale at a wide variety of online booksellers, so you should be able to compare prices and find the one that is the least expensive.

Is there anywhere online to buy Djarum Bali Hai cigarettes now that they've been banned?

User Avatar
I live in Australia and a pack of Djarum here cost around 20 dollars! I have been getting them online for like 10-15 times now. This place call CiggiesWorld is pretty reliable and they take paypal too. Other online shop only take money orders and western union so I was a bit reluctant buying from them. All of those online overseas sites suck. Anyone looking to get some of the original Djarum Blacks living in the U.S can email me and I can help you out. I live in the U.S so no need to worry about customs confiscating the shipment or never getting it and losing your money like all the overseas websites.

Where can one buy a 'Bo Knows' shirt in Australia or online?

User Avatar
Anonymous If you're looking for a collectible one from the 1980's, try searching for "sports collectibles" or "baseball memorabilia" or "football memorabilia" with the Google form to the right. Then call or e-mail a dealer if you can't find the shirt. If you're just looking for a shirt that says "Bo Knows ... Whatever," have one made custom. It's fairly cheap. Again, search Google for custom t-shirt makers. "Bo Knows..." shirts can be found online. There are a wide variety of colors and designs to choose from. You can also have these shirts personalized to fit your taste. I've found some on zazzle.com and ebay.

Asked in Online Shopping

Can online shop replace real store?

User Avatar
Yes and no. Yes, in that with an online store you can save time, gas money and there is a lot more to choose from. No, because when you shop online you can't touch and feel the product or use your other senses. So while shopping online definitely has it's advantages, nothing replaces shopping the old-fashioned way. There is also a social benefit to offline shopping that you can't get as much online. Nothing beats face-to-face human interaction when it comes to the buying experience.
