Update: Since writing this post, we’ve received a number of complaints regarding BidCactus. Further more, it appears that BidCactus is no longer offering auction and that Beezid.com is now honoring their bids.
BidCactus is a top 10 penny auction website which offers a few unique ways to bid for free and cheap.

The best way to get discounted bids on BidCactus.com is at sign-up. As with many of the other popular penny auctions, BidCactus offers discounted bids for new members through the use of a coupon code.

Free to Bid Auctions on BidCactus.com
BidCactus offers free to participate auctions similar to other penny auctions such as HappyBidDay.com. With these auctions, all BidCactus members can bid for free, and just pay the final closing auction price if they win. What’s the catch? The products offered in these auctions are typically bid packages (for the pay to participate auctions) and small gift cards. We still really like this feature because it allows bidders to load-up on bid packages for cheaper than retail price.
Getting Free BidCactus Bids – Offers
The “Promotions” section of the BidCactus website is interesting. Those familiar with popular websites such as SwagBucks may be familiar with the concepts of an offer walls and rewards stores. Here’s how this works- BidCactus has partnerships with a number of online retailers. If you click on one of these retailer’s coupons from BidCactus.com, you can earn free BidCactus bids if you decide to make a purchase on the retailer’s website. See, BidCactus gets a ‘kick-back’ from these retailers so they pass some of that on to you. We think it’s a great way to earn free bidcactus.com bids!
Overall, we like BidCactus.com because they seem to offer more chances for free bids and cheapr bids than many of the other major players (Quibids, Beezid, DealDash, etc.) in the penny auction industry. The auction competition is reasonable and the free-to-participate penny auctions offer plenty of opportunities for cheap BidCactus bids.
