With all the crazy-huge items QuiBids customers win all the time, it’s often really easy to neglect the smaller-scale success stories our auctions inspire on a daily basis. Playing small-ball has proven itself an excellent QuiBids tactic, one that a lot of our users employ to regular success here, and when it’s coupled with a patient spending strategy, small-time wins can grow into big-time wins over time, as one of our more recent QuiBidders of the Week proved a couple of weeks ago.
With a sudden influx of auctions for gift cards good for gasoline at Shell, Sunoco, ExxonMobil, BP, and other gas stations, we realized that the careful QuiBidder can — by applying a similar strategy — keep their gas tank topped off each month.
Think about it: how much money do you spend each week getting to and from work or school (or both), picking up the kids, running errands, etc.? Several of our employees carpool to the QuiBids office every day from Oklahoma City’s surrounding suburbs, so we know how far a $25 gas card can go. It’s a considerable chunk of your monthly expenses, one that can balloon out of control if you’re getting less than 20 miles to the gallon on the highway.
Really, how hard is it to win a single auction every week? If you focus on playing small-ball with $10 and $25 gift cards to gas stations, they’ll add up to plenty of savings on your trips to the pump. Maybe you’ll even be able to cancel out that chunk of the monthly budget if you haul in enough gas cards.
So just like Wendi M. eventually won that HDTV by pooling together her smaller auctions, you can keep your gas tank topped off by picking off out-of-the-way auctions for small-time gift cards. Here are a few upcoming auctions, so get at it and let us know how this strategy works out for you in the comments. Happy bidding!
