SpinDealz permits 7 wins in a 28 day period, and 3 wins per 24 hour period. Additional auction limits include one win of the same item over $299.00 in a value during a 28 day period. Only one win of any item over $699.00 in a 28 day period is allowed. All bids, purchased or promotional, apply to these limits.
For example, if you win an XBOX 360 250GB (299.99), you will not be able to bid on any XBOX 360 250GB for the following 28 days. These limits allow more users to receive huge savings on that items that SpinDealz offers.

You can place bids in two ways:
· Manual Bids – You can manually click an auctions “Bid” button and one bid will be deducted from your available bids.

How an Auction Works
Each auction has a specified timer, which can be 10, 15, or 20 seconds. When a user bids on the item, time is added to the auction timer. For example, if an auction has a 10-second timer and there are 3 seconds remaining for the auction to expire, the timer will reset to 10 seconds if a user places a bid before the auction expires. This gives all users a chance to participate in auctions and to get a chance at winning items at heavily discounted prices!
Multi Bid Auctions
SpinDealz offers promotional Multi-bid auctions in which we offer free bids for all users! Multi-Bid auctions include Quad-Bid, Triple-Bid, and Double-Bid auctions. All users receive free bids until a special reserve auction price is met. For example, in a Quad-Bid auction, all users will receive 3 free bids for each bid placed until the reserve sales price is met. The reserve sales price is not disclosed, and the free bids promotion expires when the auction item’s price meets the reserve price. This means you should not hesitate and place bids to receive as many free bids as possible!
SpinDealz is the only penny auction site in which we offer to purchase the item back from the auction winner. If you win an auction and for any reason you decide you no longer want the item, you can “SpinIt”, and SpindDealz will offer to purchase the item from you at MSRP value!
For example, if you won a Notebook with an MSRP value of $499.99 and you decide to “SpinIt”, SpinDealz will offer to purchase the item at MSRP value, minus the final selling price of the item, and minus shipping and handling. If the Notebook auction ended with a selling price of $499.99, then SpinDealz will offer you $499.99 - $99.99 - $5.95 (s/h) = $394.05! SpinDealz will pay the user in the form of certified check, which will be mailed via United States Priority Mail. However, you may wish to continue checkout and choose not to SpinIt. This offer does not apply to all auctions, and only applies to “SpinIt” auctions. “SpinIt” auctions are strictly promotional and offered at limited times.
Winning an Auction
An auction ends when the auction timer reaches zero on SpinDealz’s servers. You will have 7 calendar days to confirm and pay for your item, otherwise the item is forfeited. When an auction ends, you will be redirected to our checkout page where you can confirm and pay for the item.
If your winning auction is a SpinIt auction, please review the SpinIt section.
You will have the opportunity to review the final payment including shipping and handling. After payment you will receive a payment confirmation email. Once the item ships, an email confirmation will be sent.
Technical Errors & Unforseen Circumstances
Spindealz strives to produce the best user experience for every user and fan of penny auctions. However, occasionally technical glitches and/or uncontrollable circumstances will occur, which will result in voided auctions.

Spindealz reserves the right to void any auction that is deemed to have suffered technical errors. Spindealz reserves the right to refund and/or credit bids to users who have placed bids on such auctions.
