“Armchair Auction Fever!”

published 29/05/2006

Can get bargains, good selection of goods

Pricey p&p, you can end up buying tat!

I 'invested' in Sky Digital some 3 and a half years ago, once I had, I was amazed b the wide variet of channels! Upon flicking through the 647th channel- Bid UP TV (as it was then) I came across what appeared to be an online eBay, auctioning off saucepans, watches, golf lcubs and kiddies toys...

Satisfactory

You may find a bargain

High delivery prices, unstable website

While flicking through the hundreds of channels on Sky a couple of years back, my husband happened upon Bid Up, a shopping channel with a difference. Instead of simply buying an item, you could bid on it, a little bit like Ebay only you would phone in your bid. After watching for a while we...

“TV Auctions at Bid-up. TV”

published 01/02/2003

Bid-up shopping is very easy

Auctions may prove costly

I used to be an avid shopper at bid-up.tv because its so easy to buy and the bargains to be had seemed terrific. The principle is to auction off approximately eight lots per hour, sometimes more if it is a speed auction. An auctioneer describes the product, usually in glowing terms and great...

“Bargains if your lucky”

published 02/01/2004

Can find bargains if you are very lucky

Delivery is expensive and takes quite a while

Summary Bid-up.tv is an interactive auction channel featuring on Sky Digital (647), Freeview (24), Ntlworld and Telewest. It is the sister channel of pricedrop.tv (see my review dated 1/1/2004) however, it has been established for a longer period of time and was one of the first live auction...

“Hidden extras”

published 06/09/2007

Many items are excellent value for money

the additional costs take the edge off your bargai...

I am not too happy with some of the happenings of these channels. The fact you can only buy one item at a time (or pay P&P and call cost) on another phone. They boast a money back guarantee but they fail to say it doesn't include your P&P. I recently had to return a very cheap item because they...

Easy to use

Registration is abit complicated

Bid-up.tv is a amazingly popular but low key auction channel that operates on Sky Digital and services alike such as NTL etc. With friendly presenters, friendly chit-chat Bid-up.tv make auctionering fun and honest, and value for money. Items range from 100's of sets of plates to a collection of...

you have to know weights on jewelrey (grams ect)

In my opinion, bid-up. TV has to be the best site on the web and TV. I have bid and won loads of gifts. Both on TV, and on the web. It is the easiest thing I have ever taken part in. The directions are made absolutely clear both on the phone and on the web. I have bought most of my Christmas...

Not for me

Trying to get a refund for non delivery is almost impossible, as all they keep telling you is to wait ten days for a returns form. When this doe,s not arrive they tell you a second form will be with you asap, but what they mean is another ten days. In my view this firm is a load of crap where customer services concerned.

“Going going GONE!”

Bid what you can afford

Last minute bidders nicking your bargain

One day last december i was flicking through the channels on my Frewview box only to come across BIDUPTV. I decided to watch out of interest and within an hour I was a fully fledged website member. The hosts are funny and explain things in plain simple fashion with the added glitz of some rather...

I used Bid-Up TV to buy many of my christmas presants this year. It saved a lot of time wandering around the shops. I bought some really high quality name brand products at significant savings. The process of bidding over the telephone is very easy. I have recently started to bid over the...

This service is very impressive. The bargains, to be had, are tremendous, in my opinion. Excellent value for money, a saving of over £70 on two formula one racing car and track sets, alone. There is viewing of the products, time to judge whether you feel they are worth the estimate, and how much...

“This is THE way to buy!”

published 22/08/2003

Buying from chair! excellent range of goods

P+P is a little too high on some things

Bid-up.tv is the most brilliant concept I have ever come across! It’s the consumer friendly auction for couch potatoes! You can either bid by phone which costs 75 p per minute or use the website to bid for free. The auctioneers are very good and one in particular is a real hoot, Andy Hodgson is...
