Hello there,

And welcome to our passion. has been a two-year project in the making. From concept, to design, to development and now – the release!

All of us here at Bid Serious are no different than yourself. We all love to shop online. Been doing it for years. Because we all love to save money. But, even more so, we like to be treated kindly and just enjoy life.

A couple years back, a few of us we’re discussing our recent online shopping experiences from various websites. And, to our surprise, we began to notice some unsettling trends.

Words like ‘skeptical’, ‘confused’, and ‘impersonal’ became common place in our discussions. Which was frustrating, because online shopping didn’t always seem to be like this.

But given each of our expertise and ‘can do’ characters, we knew we could make difference. Not just within the online shopping industry. But beyond that, as well. So we constructed a social entrepreneurial business model that places the emphasis back on people – by giving charitable donations, honest product education, and personal customer service.

Just as if you were to walk into your favorite store and expect to be treated with a friendly smile and helpful assistance, all of us at Bid Serious are available to you. We all have phone lines. We all have emails.

So drop us a line any time.

We are the most down-to-earth group you will ever meet. We always keep in mind that every customer willing to support our dream here at Bid Serious is also a person – with values, interest, and connections to be made.

So, once again, welcome to Bid Serious. We hope you find our hard work fun and enjoyable. Keep on the lookout for new promotions, auction items, and updates – they will be coming in fast and furious. And if you happen to have a good idea for the site, please let us know.

Now get to bidding, bargain hunter! And thanks again!

The Bid Serious Team!
