Biddees.com Claims Success In Grocery Discounts
Santa Monica-based gift card auction startup Biddees.com is claiming today that consumers using the site are saving an average of 10 percent on gift cards on the site, including grocery gift cards from retailers Vons/Safeway and Whole Foods. The site, which operates a reverse auction service for brand name gift cards, said it is seeing lots of demand for the grocery store gift cards on its service. Biddees is run by the former team behind Shoes.com, and combines bidding on gift cards with microdonations to nonprofits.
