Our Gift to You! New Auction Lockout feature on PennyGrab for New Years 2014

We thank our members feedback, The  new Auction Lockout feature on PennyGrab has already showed some positive feedback and we appreciate the continuous emails we get from our Members.   The auction lockout feature is quite simple…



Auction Lockout works like this:
Fifty consecutive bids need to be placed on the same auction and the “locked sound” and locked bid button will turn on, the user who placed the fifty (50) consecutive bids has 3 minutes to continue placing bids on the auction to win. For every fifty (50) consecutive bids placed the 3 minute countdown will be reset. If the auction has not been completed by the user who locked the auction after three minutes, the auction can be unlocked for other participants to join in the auction.

PennyGrab.com continues to innovate in 2014, we look forward to releasing our very much anticipated iOS application that is still in beta mode. We believe the entertainment auction industry is only going to thrive in the coming years ahead and we wish all our Members a Happy 2014!

Sincerely,

Al Benyameen
CEO / President

New Buy it Now Rules on our Popular Mystery Auctions

When you speak we LISTEN. As you all know we love feedback from our players here at PennyGrab!

By popular demand we have now made the Buy It Now (BIN) only available to the top two purchased credits bidders on all our Mystery Auctions. We believe this change is beneficial to all players that run bigger items. Most agree second place should be rewarded for being a great competitor and now they can be rewarded with a smoking deal on the item they where trying to win!

Top 3 bidders can still get the Buy It Now on regular auctions and our bonus prize penny auctions. Please remember that all Buy It Now's have to be at least 10% off before you can purchase it.

With this change we have also Lifted the buy it now limit on all electronics!

We here at PennyGrab would like to thank all our Members for your continued input on making PennyGrab a great penny auctions site where it's FUN TO SHOP and FUN TO WIN!

Not Sure how Random Reserve Auction Sites Work?

Checkout: http://www.pennytime.com/reserve-penny-auctions

Random Reserve Auction Sites have a predetermined randomly generated number which is created during the auction creation process. We call this the "Reserve Ending Price"

New BIN Rules (BUY NOW)

We have updated our sites Buy Now to Better Serve You! Now only the Top 3 Bidders can "BIN" the auction, there is only 1 BIN per auction. Our BIN structure pricing starts at Amazon Prices (usually the lowest on the internet) than each time a purchased PennyGrab credit is used on that auction it will reduce by .10 cents each time, for example if a $1000.00 Walmart card had 1000 credits places on it, that Walmart card would be $900.00 a whopping $100.00 Savings, this is why PennyGab is the place for Truely low Prices! We also have changed BIN Blitz Token Entry Page to 5%.


We here at PennyGrab would like to thank all our Members for your continued input on making PennyGrab a great auction site where it's FUN TO SHOP!

As the 2012 Olympic Games Begin, PennyGrab Offers 12% Off Credit Packs


PennyGrab.com Penny Auctions announced today a savings spectacular for all Members to help celebrate the US Olympic team in London.

From Friday, July 27th through Sunday July 29th, all Members can take part in PennyGrabs 12% OFF SALE using Promo Code GOUSA which comes just in time for an Olympic weekend filled with all new inventory on the webs number one Reserve Auction.

While many penny auctions have come and gone over the past year, PennyGrab.com recently celebrated their 1st anniversary with a huge blow out of low reserves, huge discounts on credit packs, as well as bringing in new games, new items to win as well as community events like the weekly Group Grab Friday.

If you've not experienced a Reserve Auction site, you'll find yourself pleasantly surprised. Reserve auctions, unlike normal penny auctions, allow each and every Member to win on an equal basis without fear of "power bidders" or worse... such as penny auctions that utilize shill bidding in order to increase profits.

Not only does PennyGrab.com do away with the above, but they also bring high quality items to the table, every single day. An example would be their brand name Coach Purses and Bags, to the Google Nexus 7 which seems to be out of stock everywhere else online. Somehow, PennyGrab seems to find all the hard to find yet highly sought after items that everyone wants.

Be sure to check out PennyGrab this weekend and discover not only fantastic savings over any other penny auction, but the quality you should have been demanding from the competition and the best customer support system to be found anywhere.

Fast Approaching PennyGrab's 1 Year Anniversary Event to Bring Extraordinary Savings!



It's been an amazing 1st year here at PennyGrab.com We've not only had some fantastic savings and deals, but we've managed to donate to Toys for Tots, we've got really great Members and our love of loves. We've continued to innovate and help lead the charge against fraud sites using shill bidding!

But mostly it's seeing how happy so many of you get when you get those excellent deals on PennyGrab! Believe it or not, all of us here at PennyGrab routinely get excited when we see your Screen Names winning a lot of items or getting those unbelievable deals. So we figured what better way to celebrate our 1st Anniversary than by making a 3 day saving spectacular for all our Members!

From Monday July 2nd - July 4th we'll be celebrating with our Members by offering extraordinary deals and savings on our most popular items and our most beloved Auction styles.

Join us and you'll find unheard of savings for this 3 day event! Savings far and above what you've normally come to expect from penny auctions.

Be sure to "Check In" on our FaceBook page (not mandatory however!) and let us know that you'll be attending! We'll also be sending out an email as a reminder to Members who've elected to get our emails.

We also want to take this moment to thank each and every one of our Members for such a great first year. From day one, we have had Members join us every day, expanding not only our Member base, but our knowledge base as well. While we do our best to answer each and every question, it's the wisdom and experience that you all share with old and new Members alike that help make PennyGrab what it is: A place to not only win auctions and get penny deals, but to be a part of something that can?t be constructed; A group of like minded friends.

Penny Auctions are virtually a dime a dozen (or is that a penny?), it's the community that we feel sets PennyGrab apart and above all the rest. Sure, we have amazing deals on virtually anything you could possibly want? however deals are only one part of this well oiled machine. The greatest part of PennyGrab is you? and we want you to know that we will never, ever forget this.

It's time for another FAQ Day!


While we do our best to address any questions that arise through chat or email or phone... we thought we'd post up some of the most frequently asked questions again in hopes that this will help in some way for those who've not contacted us.

Q: How do I know if I've won?

A: When an auction is over, the main image of the item will display "SOLD" in big bright letters and no further bids will be allowed to be placed. If you are the Winner of an Auction, you will receive an email and you will also see the words "WINNER" and your user name on the auction screen.


Q: How do I use Blitz Grab?

A: Blitz Grab is a fun and unique way for Members to place any given number of Credits on an Auction. So for example, let's say you have a feeling an auction may be ending soon and you want to try to lock others out from bidding on it, you can place a certain amount of Credits on that item and the system will play each of the Credits until you either win -or- you've used all the Credits you've placed. Any Credits not used (e.g., if you win in fewer credits than you've placed in Blitz) will be instantly returned to your account!


Q: Can I trade my won items or Bonus Plays with other Members?

A: Yes! Visit our Marketplace, where you can trade your items that we've not shipped yet with any other Member. From Gift Cards to Gold to Gaming Consoles, if you want it or want to trade it for something else, you can almost always find someone interested!

Q: What are Blitz Tokens? How do I receive them?

A: Blitz Tokens are the prfect answer for those who take part in our "Buy Now" feature. They can be used at the end of a Blitz to ensure that you can get a fantastic deal on the same item through the Buy Now! Blitz Tokens can be gained by purchasing a 500 -or- 1,000 credit pack or by winning them in our Blitz Token Auctions!

While we're very proud of all we have accomplished we're always looking for new and innovative ways to not only make your #1 Entertainment Shopping website, PennyGrab.com Penny Auction, as fun as possible... we also thrive on the success of our Members. If you have ideas, feedback or questions, please let us know!

We also have many new things coming all the time! From great items to new games and new ways to win, at PennyGrab YOU are our most important Member... and we are doing our best to ensure a smile for all, everyday!

A Special Friday the 13th Update


As we (QUICKLY!) approach our 1 year anniversary here at PennyGrab, we're beginning to look back at the fun we've had, the good friends we've made and of course at some of the amazing wins and deals PennyGrab Members have gotten.

Now, being Friday the 13th... we've again decided to take a fun stance in our emails again because we think that smiles are contagious and we like to share our with you! Well that and... To be honest, the boring, stuffy emails just don't represent "us" as your PennyGrab Team.

So today we have our biggest Credit Pack discount to date, 13% off all Credit Packs, but you have to be QUICK because it only lasts 13 hours! Hopefully you'll be able to replenish your accounts to be able to take advantage of Group Grab Friday!


PROMO CODE: 13

With so many Penny Auction websites having come and gone in the past 10 months, we feel absolutely blessed to have each and every one of you as Members and friends here. We've asked for pictures and you've sent them in! We ask for feedback and ideas and you're there offering us some of the most innovative concepts in the industry... and we work very hard to ensure we can not only get you those ideas in a live platform... but doing so in a fair way so ensure everyone is happy!

For us, Entertainment Shopping is part giving you what you want to see in a way you want to play it, part seeing our Members winning very competitive auctions and part just interacting with you and getting to know everyone via our chat room. But we understand that for all of our Members, having a competitive but fair service replete with items you actually want to win (ok, the Bonus Prizes are a big hit too!)... And to that, we hope we can say that we excel!

While we have many new and exciting things coming (some soon, some not as soon), we still want to know what else you'd like to see here. From service to auction concepts to new prizes and games to win credits... we are listening!

As always, our phones and emails are constantly being checked, so talk to us and share your thoughts (Good, bad or otherwise!); we use them to make every aspect of bidding sites better!
