    I have won several items from Wavee including a Sony Digital Camera, 2 GPS units, and a $100 giftcard. Shipping was pretty fast and items came from Amazon (with the exception of the giftcard).

    I have won several items on wavee, and have always received them in less than a week. It is an awesome site, and I love it! Keep up the good work wavee!!!!!

    be careful if you’re running low on bid credits on wavee… their counter doesn’t reliably reflect your last bid. 2 times I thought I had one bid left, based on the wavee counter, only to lose the auction as I clicked ‘bid now’ – only then did their system let me know i didn’t have any bids left. had i known, i could have quickly purchased another bid package. but thanks to their glitch i saw two auctions end – and my bids wasted. i’ve rec’d no reply from their ‘customer service’ team, either.

    I recently joined Wavee based on the comments/reviews from this site. However, I am starting off with “not so good luck” from this site. As a new user they give 5 credit, but you have to put in your phone # to receive a text message to get the credit. I did this 10 times and never got a text from this, but I receive text from other people, so nothing is wrong with my service. After a couple emails AND sending them a feedback comment, they finally gave me the 5 credits. However, they also advertise giving credits for becomming their facebook fan. I have yet to receive credits for this. I have emailed a couple times AND send feedback comments. They ignore them and have not posted my credits for this. They know I am a fan because they thanked me but will not answer about my credits. Can we say FALSE ADVERTISING????

  5. penny-auction-expert March 19, 2010 at 4:53 pm #

    Hey Zinjurious,

    Wavee’s usually pretty good when it comes to customer service, but their traffic has increased significantly in recent days. Its possible that they are backlogged and haven’t gotten a chance to add your credits yet.

    Hope everything works out for you. Post an update if you receive or do not receive those credits.

    I’ve been lurking on Wavee for a long time. I’ve gotten free signup bids, free facebook fan bids, and free bids for following them on Twitter. I recently won their YouTube contest. I’ve submitted several “tickets” to Wavee’s support, and they have all been answered promptly and professionally. I thoroughly recommend this site! If you’re just starting, make sure to hit the beginner auctions! They aren’t quite a guaranteed win, but they have pretty good odds these days!

  7. Andrew June 2, 2010 at 6:23 am #

    wavee is amazing! go in ready to buy the item you want at retail price (often times below retail price on wavee) and have a chance of getting it for 80-90% off!!! ipads go for $20 sometimes, same with ps3s and xboxs and even cameras!! it amazing!

  8. D June 10, 2010 at 9:47 am #

    Wavee is awesome. The beginner bids are great way to get started. Also you have a better chance to win here than other places because they limit wins. Use my user name: dadzio as a referral. :)

  9. tony October 1, 2010 at 5:09 am #

    Be careful when signing up, they hid the fact that you are going to be billed and if you hit the button you are immediately charged with out the option to accept the amount you are going to be billed for. The amount is not refundable so if you find the site not to your liking too bad. Customer service sounded more like a used car salesman than CS. Accepting I had been ripped off, I looked at the bids and saw the same name on several bids. Could it be internal to encourage more bidding? I just have a very bad feeling about this site.

  10. trojanconsumer October 2, 2010 at 6:39 pm #

    Wavee.com is a scam. I detailed my experience and it is currently featured at customerreviews.org. It is horrible and should be avoided.

    I believe that most of the positive reviews and some of the bidding are done by wavee employees. The discounts are huge because you pay hefty prices for bids. When those auctions are won by them they make money on bids and don’t have any costs for product. If you spend time on the site, you’ll pay $179 the second you enter a credit card and you’ll quickly see that only a few win all the auctions. enter at your own peril…i mean risk.

  11. stan wells October 7, 2010 at 10:30 am #

    Wavee.com is built on a solid foundation of deception. From the phony “Memphis Gazette” to the misleading sign in…no confirmation page before checkout. They RELY on deception for their success. I wish they used their talents to positively serve others. How about some confidence in yourselves Wavee people?

  12. penny-auction-expert October 8, 2010 at 6:52 pm #

    Hey Stan,

    Could you provide us with more info on the “Memphis Gazette” advertising? We have been unable to locate this and we want to make sure that any site featured here is using honest marketing techniques.

    Thanks for your feedback.

  13. Jim October 13, 2010 at 11:23 am #

    Hey penny auction expert,

    I too fell for the “memphis gazette” scam, very dumb of me in hindsight. It seems rather hard to win on this site, how many people have confirmed wins? This is the link to the article. http://www.memphisgazette.org/indexwavetv2.html?t202id=688204&t202kw=154619

  14. penny-auction-expert October 13, 2010 at 1:50 pm #

    Hi Jim,

    Thanks for your comment. From a personal opinion standpoint, Wavee used to be one of the best penny auction sites out there. You can see from the early comments on this post that there were many loyal fans.

    In recent months, we’ve received more complaints about Wavee – slow shipping, etc. We’ll send an email to them this week and try to get some clear explanations.

    Thanks for providing the Memphis Gazette link. We’re not a big fan of deceptive advertising, so we’ll inquire with Wavee about that as well.

    In the meantime, let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Josh from the Penny Auction List

  15. JOHN lerch October 16, 2010 at 3:42 pm #

    I signed up at my own free will although their sign up is deceptive. Their demo and ad made it sound as though bid to buy was always available and not just up to a certain amount or certain items. But I bid away and did my best to get my moneys worth. I won 5 auctions and used buy it now on 10. I am up over $100 above what I spent which is $600.00. Problem is I haven’t received a single item and they won’t answer my emails and it’s been 2 weeks. I’ve already received my credit card bill. Seems they are quick to take your money but slow to give you your items. I’m ready to file with my card company’s to charge them back. If they would just email me back and let me know when they would arrive I would feel better. So you can win there but good luck getting your items.

  16. Concerned October 16, 2010 at 3:53 pm #

    A would definately not recemmend the site. They immediately debited my credit card for $179.00 without my knowledge or consent. I am in the process of disputing these charges and reporting them to the proper authorities.

  17. penny-auction-expert October 16, 2010 at 5:19 pm #

    @JOHN lerch,

    Thanks for your comments. Slow shipping seems to be a common complaint with Wavee lately. We’re sending them an email tonight to try and get more information about the delays.

    We will post an update here if we receive one.

  18. Jackie October 18, 2010 at 11:50 am #

    Don’t think I will ever buy any more credits at Wavee since I lost quite a bit of money, NEVER won any of the auctions, and customer service is very shady! Wonder if website is legit… Anyways, I decided to buy an item after I’d bidded on for hours-on-end on 10/10 and was charged immediately on my debit card. On the site FAQ it states “Your purchase should arrive in your MAILBOX within 3-7 business days of the purchase date.” so I figured 3-7 days with free shipping-GREAT. Well, it’s been 8 days and the item is still NOT in my mailbox nor I have any idea when I will receive it. I contacted Wavee customer service live chat to ask about the status of my order and I felt as if I was asking an absurd question… I was told it should take 2 weeks for my order to arrive, so I mentioned the FAQ statement and the answer was ” 2 weeks”… Nice…way to go Wavee!! Never ever again I will bother with your site if I don’t receive my item by the 2 week mark I will dispute the charge!!

  19. laurie bush October 22, 2010 at 9:56 pm #

    YES, “concerned”… I was also scammed for the 179.00. You put your credit card info in to register, hit submit, and somehow, you spent this amount of money on bidding credits without even knowing. I called and all they would do was refund 50% as a “courtesy”. Very deceptive. The page where you enter cc info automatically scrolls past the choice of packages, and one is checked for you! There is no confirmation to alert you to the fact that you are making a purchase. WAVEE IS COMMITTING CRIME. DO NOT USE IT.

  20. Patti October 23, 2010 at 9:19 am #

    Here is the link to the Memphis Gazette, which appears false. Over to the right, in red, it tells you the Wavee2010 offer is good until the day after you are clicking on the link. The date will change everyday, adding one day to the day you are reading the advertisement. There is no warning before your credit card is charged $179 and it is nearly impossible to win any of the auctions, which leads me to believe the “winners” are inside Wavee people. Buyer beware.

    Hey Everyone,

    We sent Wavee an email with your concerns. Here is their response dated 10/20:

    —-

    Thank you for your inquiry. I would love the opportunity to address all of your questions/concerns.

    (i.) Unreasonably slow shipping

    We most certainly apologize to anyone who has has previously had a shipping delay and appreciate their patience. I am happy to let you know that by the end of the week, Wavee will not have any outstanding items to any of its customers. In fact, I highly doubt that can be said among any of our peers. We are a healthy, growing company with improved shipping and handling.

    (ii.) Unanswered e-mails

    As Wavee has seen tremendous growth, it has been difficult to keep up with an increased volume of e-mail inquiries. We have recently added to the size of our support team and customer service has and will continue to be our number one priority.

    (iii.) Unanticipated Charges

    As is the case with almost all penny auction sites, credit purchases are non-refundable. We have been running a promotional offer for new users that offers FREE credits with a credit purchase. A very small percentage of customers have misunderstood this promotional offer and have misrepresented this as “unanticipated charges”.

    Please let us know if there are any further questions/concerns we can help address. As I previously mentioned, Wavee is a healthy, growing company and customer service is our number one priority.

    —-

    Though we do not advocate their “Memphis Gazette” advertising (thanks Patti for providing the link) or any advertorials of that kind – it does seem that Wavee still desires to keep consumers happy.

    Please continue to send your questions or concerns to them, and feel free to post any updates here.

    Thanks.

    I will NEVER endorse this site. wavee.com is a COMPLETE SCAM! Nowhere, let me repeat, NOWHERE does it sat that you card will be billed. There is a pending charge of $179 on my account and I too am in the middle of disputing it. I was informed that the charge wasn’t even on their system. How can it show up on my account activity and not in their system. No warning OR confirmation is stated anywhere during the registration process. This site is a SCAM

  23. Robert October 26, 2010 at 11:54 am #

    http://www.channel9newstoday.com/

    That is the fake news website that is offering this “amazing” deal. Every tab you click on takes you to xbids.com. They used to have wavee.com, but since the morning when I opened the email, they have switched sites from wavee to xbids

  24. Robert October 26, 2010 at 11:59 am #

    If you take the time to look at both sites

    The male in the banner is the exact same person, but with two different names. I am sorry that I keep commenting, but I am truly disgusted that a website, and now TWO are taking advantage people before the Christmas rush in this economy. I don’t know about anyone else out there, but $179 is alot of money to me and my family. I am a teacher trying to scrape by with my wife and three daughters. Thank you for letting me vent and I sincerely hope that no one else is duped into this.

  25. Amanda October 29, 2010 at 10:31 am #

    These advertorials & charges are VERY unsettling and misleading, in my opinion. If you’ve experienced charges and problems with Wavee.com and any other penny auction site, please let me know. Thank you, Amanda PennyAuctionWatch.com & feel free to join the forum. Thanks!

  26. Janet November 4, 2010 at 8:54 am #

    On 10/27/10 my husband signed up with Wavee after hearing about how great it was on CNN. He was charged $179.00 without being warned and immediately went to their online chat to dispute the charges. The operator sent him to the webpage that she said he signed up from. It had a big banner at the top of the page about the $179. This was not the same page where he had signed up for the ‘free’ account. He was told by the online operator that she would refund his credit card within 1-3 business days. It was not done so I contacted online chat again and was told that I needed a confirmation# to prove we had requested a refund. Of course no confirmation# had ever been offered previously. Now, finally, I have a confirmation# related to the refund and I’m told that it will be 3-5 business days before the credit will show up on my credit card. I will continue to pursue this and dispute the charges with VISA if necessary. This household will not be dealing with Wavee.com ever again.

  27. Tempest November 4, 2010 at 9:00 pm #

    Not only are their advertisements fake their bidders are fake. I came upon Wavee.com as I was surfing the internet. At first when I saw the prices they seemed too good to be true. And you know how the saying goes, if it’s too good to be true it often is. I’ve been watching the site for 2 days now. Tonight I’ve been watching 4 auctions simultaneously, Cannon Eos 50D, HP Pavilion Desktop computer, Samsung LED TV, and a Macbook Pro. What I found unbelievable and close to impossible was that the bidding history was identical and all bids were put in at the same time, all auctions were at the same price. I watched the auctions for hours and of the 30 names or so I saw “bidding” on all 4 items they all happened at the same time. Basically if one could check the timestamp history of bids on all 4 auctions they would be identical. What do I think of that? A program is doing the bidding. There’s absolutely no way all 4 items could have identical histories. I didn’t see one bid that was different. Even if all those people bidding wanted the same items, wouldn’t there be at least one person who wanted one of the items and not the other??? I’ve screen shotted the auctions as they happened at different intervals.

  28. Alex November 5, 2010 at 12:45 pm #

    this is in their terms and conditions that you “had to read” (check box) to sign up

    6. Charges and Payments: You must purchase or otherwise obtain “Credits” in order to place bids for products in any of our Wavee Auctions. Upon clicking the “Start Bidding” button below the Payment Information section on our promotional page, you will immediately be charged $179 for 300 Credits. Additional credits may be awarded depending on the promotional code entered, if any. Credits are non-refundable. Our charges for Credits, or the number of Credits required to place a bid, may change from time to time. Such changes will be posted on our Website. The right to use any Credit expires, if not used within 180 days of the date purchased or otherwise obtained from us. Wavee reserves the right to expire Credits acquired with a discount of more than five percent off of the regular posted price at any time after 90 days from the date purchased or otherwise obtained from us.
    ———————————–

    so those who were “scammed” maybe yall should have read this b4 signing up, I did, and that’s what made me NOT sign up

  29. Pam November 7, 2010 at 10:41 am #

    Mr. penny auction expert!! You did not address the $179.00 that people are complaining about on here.

  30. Jeremy November 8, 2010 at 6:58 am #

    This company is a scam. They took me through a 2 step registration process and the 2nd step asked for CC info. I assumed it was for paying for items that were won, but I was immediately charged $179 and the REFUESE to refund it. Stay away from this fraudulent company!

  31. Harry November 8, 2010 at 7:07 am #

    Wavee is the slickest scam I’ve ever encountered. While signing up for the free credits, I somehow “missed” the “warning” that I was signing to to spend $179.00 up front. Within seconds of tapping the SUBMIT button, I received an email thanking me for $179.00. I was shocked! Customer-No-Service calmly informed me that there is a no refund policy.

    Stay away from Wavee! I question whether the bidders are real or the company itself.

  32. John November 16, 2010 at 1:19 pm #

    Are all items from wavee brand new?

  33. Zheng November 16, 2010 at 5:15 pm #

    This is the owner of the MemphisGazette scam website:

    Marat Nigmatzyanov – nigmatzyanov14@gmail.com

    [@Zheng - Though we think the Memphis Gazette news site was a bad choice of marketing, and misleading at the very least, we will not post this individual's address or phone number. We have left the email in place for those who wish to contact him/her.]

  34. Marlene Evans November 18, 2010 at 2:15 pm #

    wavee is a scam. First they charged my credit card without my permission. So I watched the auction for hours. The same person bid so many times that they paid more for the item than if they had bought it. Some sites say they have bidders and it would appear to be the only explanation. Do not even give your credit info. O nce they] charge it is impossible to get the money back.

  35. kim November 21, 2010 at 6:50 am #

    I agree. it’s a scam. I feel like a total fool today. tried it out and somehow wound up getting a $75 dollar charge on my account. they said i purchased 110 credits. still not sure how that happened. that was money for my kids christmas. i was looking to maybe get a deal on something, but wound up screwed!

  36. VJ November 22, 2010 at 1:33 pm #

    Kim, you’r not the only one who fell for this. I had a similar experience last night. I emailed them saying

    “I didn’t mean to buy any credits right of the bat when I was logging into my account. Your site says register for free and get 5 free credits. I’m totally lost when I see this invoice. I’m sorry, please cancel my account and credit my card for the amount charged.”

  37. VJ November 23, 2010 at 9:49 am #

    FYI

    I just got a reply from Wavee support team;

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Wavee Support. We apologize for the inconvenience. There was clearly some confusion with this discounted purchase of 120 credits (www.wavee.com/access/promo120). We do not want to see our customers unhappy. Your 100% refund has been submitted for processing. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Thanks,

    Wavee Support

  38. Maddy November 27, 2010 at 9:01 pm #

    Anything is a scam if there are chances that you may never win ! I am hypothetically assuming that Wavee is a genuine website without any in house or dummy bidders from the company side for my analysis below. There following points (from the Terms and Conditions page) about this site suggest that the chances you win are meagre:

    1.) Credits expire in 6 months of purchase. By that time if you dont figure out how to win or if there are too many people bidding then your money is gone even if you want to use it for a later time.
    2.) Soon the situation will be that the site is so popular that you have very less chance on any auction and hence you dont bid and Wavee makes all the money (6 month time limit).
    3.) Wavee can limit number of auctions you can take part, hence youre chances of winning are limited
    4.) Wavee can limit the number of auctions you have won. Means if you win 20 auctions. Wavee can say hey you have won enough, stop!
    5.) There are no instant auctions for big items. Auctions for big items are scheduled. You cant setup a auction at 2:30 am and have only yourself on a 500$ item auction.
    6.) They may replace the item which was in the auction with a equivalent product, if they dont have the original item with them. If you put a Panasonic HDC-HS60 on auction and give a JVC as a replacement, why will I bid again?
    7.) If you win a auction but dont pay up for the product, your account may be terminated or you may face legal action (this may apply to even Wavee Bid Bundles for new members)
    8.) I cannot check Auctions ended before 7 days prior to today. If I dont find my product in those 7 day auctions then how will I build my strategy for the next auction of that product.
    9.) There is no limit on how much you can bet for a auction. Today I saw a member who spent $668.25 on bids and has to pay an extra bid amount of $135.61 ($803.86 in total) for the item priced at $299.99! .See the details below. If there can maniacs like this who will go to any extent to win (maybe thinking they will win big in another auction or are downright dumb) then can me or you win ?

    XBox 360 4GB Kinect Bundle
    Retail Value: $299.99

    Final Bid: $135.61
    Cost of Bids: $668.25
    Total Cost: $803.86

    10.) Last but the easiest point is that they dont have mazon.com or Macys gift cards. After all the members on the site are shoppers. Wavee has only a lousy $25 Starbucks gift card and a Wavee gift card. If Wavee doesnt have any products in its inventory as the order statusses on many winners suggest then we are buying fake stuff with real money!

    On the other hand, I never put my CC details on the website still got the 5 free credits. Once you sign up with out giving your CC information anywhere, login and click on your user name at the top of the site. You will be taken to a web page to edit your profile. A link there will ask you your telephone numner and a verification code will be sent to your phone using which you can claim 5 free credits !

    I agree with the point that this is nothing but gambling. If you want to play think a lot, watch for few days then take the stage.

  39. Keith November 29, 2010 at 8:34 am #

    This is a scam I merely browsed the site and ended up with a $75 dollar charge to my card. I never bid or clicked on anything. WAVEE please explain your charge. It says free registration that is all I did I want my card refunded.

  40. Cindy December 1, 2010 at 12:23 pm #

    o.k.! I saw the posting where Wavee addressed the slow shipping time. Well, I won 2 auctions on November 8th and my credit card was charged immediately. The items are still “processing”! The customer support site is terrible, they either don’t respond to emails or it is a generic answer. I finally spoke to someone in customer service after holding for more than 30 minutes and she informed me that my items would ship in about 10 “business” days. Well…it’s been 17 “business” days today and still processing. I am at my wits end! These are supposed to be Christmas gifts. And now I tried calling again, the automated system tells me to try my call again during “business” hours (which it was).

  41. penny-auction-expert December 1, 2010 at 4:34 pm #

    @Cindy,

    Sorry to hear about your negative experiences.

    Please keep us updated.

    @Everyone Else,

    Can you send us the URL to the page where you’re getting charged a registration fee?

    Thanks.

    i also entered my cc info thinking it was for items won in an auction and ended up being charged $75. I emailed them immediately and got a response stating there were no refunds. There was a box that had to be checked with terms/conditions that I obviously didn’t read well enough. What I find disturbing is that there was no actual page with an amount or a page where you confirm anything. Very misleading and now I’m down $75 before Christmas. Will let all my friends know about this site.

  43. Raymond December 2, 2010 at 9:31 am #

    I see a ton of recent negative comments about Wavee.com. Has anyone commenting here had a good experience on any other penny auction site?

  44. Raymond December 2, 2010 at 9:43 am #

    The Memphis Gazette website is very attractive and looks like a legitimate news site. It’s clear from their unusable navigation bar and other portions of the website that this site has been set up for a single purpose; to promote Wavee.com.

    If you read the footer, you can clearly see from their disclaimer that the Memphis Gazette website is nothing more than an affiliate site for whatever they are promoting.

    All articles and comments there should be considered to be nothing more than advertisements.

    When I tried to look up the ownership of the Memphis Gazette. Whois reveals that the ownership is private. Not surprising since it there’s no way to verify the information they provide as being true or accurate.

  45. Raymond December 2, 2010 at 10:44 am #

    I see my two comments submitted earlier either are waiting admin approval or were deleted.

    Could it be because they weren’t complimentary about the Memphis Gazette, a shill for Wavee or did I violate some rule here?

    I’ve never used Wavee, so didn’t comment about them.

    Just asking.

  46. Nickie December 2, 2010 at 11:06 am #

    I signed up for wavee, got the 5 free credits and was not charged $179. I have since bid on and won bundle pack credits which i used to win a TV and iHome stereo. So far so good. I’m only out about $10. But these items were won about 2 weeks ago and I have not received them. They still say processing. I was going to purchase bids since I am actually winning items in hopes of getting some Christmas gifts, but I’m afraid to until I get the others already won.

  47. penny-auction-expert December 2, 2010 at 12:27 pm #

    @Raymond,

    Thanks for your comments. We have an admin manually approve all first-time commenters. We put these measures in place because some users post fake reviews for their own fradulent websites or use obscene/vulgar language to make their points.

    I hope the $ 75.00 dollars you just stole from me today buy some nice Xmas present for a innocent little kid, shame on you people that take advantage of others with your scams

    A crooked site that rips off bidders through technical shenanigans. Twice today I “won” auctions only to have another bidder shown as winner. I had plenty of credits and bid before time expired, yet another name shows up as winner. Strangely (sure) the name showing up as the winner of the last auction was one I recognized as having won the same item in an earlier auction. He showed up late, made a few bids and won out over myself, who had been playing the game for quite some time. After my first complaint Wavee suggested I change my browser from Internet Explorer 8 to Chrome. These folks will happily take all the money you don’t need. Just don’t expect to win anything.

    Not sure what to think of this site. I did not experience the 179 dollar charge everyone is talking about. I did the beginner auctions won a few bid packages and a gift card. A few days later I was watching a Nikon D5000 which retails for around 800.00 submitted 2 bids and won, paid a 85.00 for the winning bid. A few days later bid on a external hard drive again. Won very easily think 1 to 2 bids. The next day again won a 25.00 camera bag for .72 cents. All the items were paid for immediately. Only problem is now I am several hundrend dollars into this site and I have not recieved one product that I have won. It has been over 3 weeks. I am frustrated and mad. I receive only generic responses to emails like your product will be shipped in two weeks, this ticket has been resolved. Has anyone actually recieved anything from these people????

    I would like to warn all newcomers that this is NOTHING like it claims to be!
    They should call it by what it is:
    An Online GAMBLING sight!
    All that BS about comparing themselves to EBAY, & “a great way to shop”, I Don’t beleive anybody here will attest to that whose not a part of the company or it’s affilliates.
    BE ready to lose, THINK Vegas, Not shopping.

    THEY WONT GIVE ME MY XBOX 360 KINECT THAT I WON. THEY SAID IT WASNT IN THE CATEGORY. THEY SAID IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO BE IN THE KINDLE, WII CATEGORY. IT WAS THERE! IWON IT AND WON’T GIVE IT TO ME. I WON SOMETHING IN NOVEMBER AND STILL IN PROCESS. PROCESS SUPPOSE TO BE 10 DAYS AND NOW THEY SAID IT WAS CHANGE TO 20 DAYS.

  53. Leanne December 11, 2010 at 3:34 pm #

    I just want to know if anyone received their items. I have been waiting almost 15 business days. First wavee.com said 10 business days to process, then 2-4 days to ship. It has been 11 days to process, so I called and the lady said now it will take 15 days to process. It also sounded like the same lady. Now, have you ever gotten the same person twice when calling a companys customer service???

  54. mike December 31, 2010 at 11:03 am #

    I have been following wavee.com for a few hours trying to decide if i should sign up. Finally i decided to give it a shot and started to register. When it asks for your c.c. info, i thought that was fishy so i checked first and it does say under the terms of service that you will be charged $179. I closed out and thankfully I did. It looked to good to be true and it is. Please read all the info before giving out your c.c.

    I ordered a DVD on December 5th of 2010 and expected the DVD in two weeks. After two weeks and no DVD I called customer service and was told it takes TWENTY-ONE DAYS before shipping a product. It has now been a month or thirty-one days an I still have not seen the DVD. Not only that but it still says that it is processing on their website which to me means it has not been shipped. I know it is only a DVD but if this is any indication with how long it takes to recieve any products NEVER AGAIN will I order from Wavee.com.

  56. Ed January 8, 2011 at 4:00 am #

    Hi I have been waiting for 2 weeks for a gift card that is 25 and seem that it going to cost 80. I made a mistake so I call about the order. I order 1 time for the same thing when I should charge 2 timeThe person said that some would call me and has over a week that no call. I would not do any more bid with this company.

    I won the item on 12/1/2010 and the item is still proceccing. I called wavee on 12/17/2010 and customer service said they will ship out before X’mas. I waited until 12/20/2010 and called 2nd time. This time the customer service said “you will not receive by X’mas. You will receive your item 1st week of January”. Today is 1/8/2011 and item is still proceccing. I have been sending 5 emails to wavee, but never got respond. This is the WORST purchase in my life.
    I would like to know if someone received item from them.

    I won an Apple TV on Nov 22nd and still have not received anything I have called a half dozen times. They keep telling me they are behind from Christmas and that its coming. If I where you I would stay away from Wavee…

  60. Jeremy January 19, 2011 at 12:12 pm #

    Beware of this site! I thought I’d take advantage of the “bid to buy” feature, and worst case scenario, buy the items I really wanted anyway. I “won/ordered” two items on 12/5, and here it is 1/19 with still no information! Customer service is TERRIBLE as well. After no email response for 3 weeks and finally getting in touch with a phone representative, I was just told that the item had “probably shipped”, though no shipment confirmation could be provided, and to call back in a few days if I still don’t have it.

  61. Georgina Larsen January 24, 2011 at 7:57 am #

    I decided to sign up for this sight, but what I did not see in their “rules”, was that I would be charged $75.00 just for signing up. I have them on the phone now, trying to get them to remove it from my card. They better take me seriously, as I have already contacted my bank, and was told to get back to them tomorrow, to resolve this issue. BEWARE!!!!

  62. doug January 24, 2011 at 12:26 pm #

    i have contacted you twice cannot sign in after reading reviews im going to cancel iwill dispupt my credit card.

  63. Kerry January 29, 2011 at 2:12 am #

    Wavee’s laatest excuses, i have experienced the same exucesses as mentiooned above than i get an e-mail stating below.

    Dear *****,

    As you may know, Wavee experienced some technical difficulties during the November 20th to December 15th time frame. Based on customer feedback and a thorough investigation of the events, it has become clear that the ability for many of the auction participants to place bids in certain auctions was compromised during these events. Wavee is committed to providing a fair bidding platform, and auction integrity is of paramount importance to us. As a result, and in keeping with Section 14 of our Terms and Conditions, we have decided to void the affected auctions. Upon logging-in to your account, you will see the credits used in the voided auctions added back to your account. If you were an auction winner, you have been refunded the full auction ending prices. In addition, all bid-to-buy transactions will be reversed.

    Credits refunded to your account: 20

    The following is a list of auctions in which you participated that have been voided:
    685501
    975121
    975221
    1063941

    We sincerely appreciate your patience relating to this matter.

    Respectfully,

    Wavee

  64. Sandra January 29, 2011 at 3:35 pm #

    I just received the same type of letter that Kerry did. I apparently will never receive the items I won. Extremely disappointed!

  65. Natalie February 1, 2011 at 7:43 am #

    After waiting 2 months for the two items we won and shipping dates being delayed twice they voided our orders due to ” technical difficulties” that they could not give me any details on. They refunded any credits we used but I am confident that if we were to win any more auctions we would never see the items.

    Off to the BBB….

  66. Nadine Zachary February 3, 2011 at 7:22 pm #

    I have bid on Wavee several different times over past 8 months or so. Yes, customer servic is pitiful as far as gett letters answered. I have never called. They are way too slow shipping, a common complaint. However I have always gotten my winnings eventually, never b een ripped off. Think I’ve won roughly 5 or 6 items, besides bid packs. Right now I’m using cordless keyboard and mouse I won, love both, never had cordless before.

  67. Tennille February 7, 2011 at 11:55 pm #

    WAVEE- After $200 spent on bidding and over 12 hours of my time dedicated bidding. I finally won an item 1/8/11. I won a ice cream machine that I didnt really want. I just wanted to win something a spend the points I bought so I could be done with the site. I still have not recieved my product or a reply to my messages to customer service. Site requires to much time. You can be stuck for hours trying to win a product and you can not walk away. After spending tons of money on every bid once you win none of that money goes towards you product. You must still pay. I spend $200 in bidding. Thats $200 for the opportunity to win. I could have just out right paid for the item and saved money and time.

  68. steve February 11, 2011 at 7:02 pm #

    this site SUCKS. dont even waste your 1 cent. they are not worth it and have THE WORST cust. service, which is non-existent.
    WAVEE SUCKS! and cant say much more than that.

  71. rippedoff_by_wavee March 2, 2011 at 4:39 pm #

    Wavee US LLC is an unlicensed gambling site and not an auction site! They’ve charged me $89 just for registering. I AM OUTRAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Beware they are a fraudulent company! Go to the BBB web site and file a complaint as I just did. http://www.bbb.org/us/Find-Business-Reviews/ Where it asks for business name, enter Wavee US, LLC . If everybody who was ripped off did that, maybe their web site will be shut down. Couple of days ago I wanted to check out Wavee.com penny auction site so I went ahead and registered with them. Filled out their form entering my name, address and also credit card number. I wasn’t surprised that they’ve asked for my cc number, I thought they will need it when/if I’ll buy / win something from their site. Next thing I know is that my visa was charged for $89.00 without any order taking place, without any verification or approval. I did not order nor purchased anything, all I did was clicked the “Continue” button on their site after registering. They’ve charged me $89 just for registering because I am 1000% sure I DID NOT PURCHASE anything from their site. They refuse to refund me the $89. Now (when it’s too late) I am checking out their reviews on the net and hundreds of people are complaining that the same happened to them too. This is a ripoff, this is a criminal act, this is FRAUD and should be punished. After I’ve sent them an email they are offering a 50% refund (as they do to everybody else as I’ve read on the internet). I will contact the FBI, their local Attorney General’s Office, their local Governor and will also file criminal charges against them. Everybody should contact the above authorities and try everything in our power to shut this fraudulent company down. I am really pissed!!!!!!

  72. K Anderson March 5, 2011 at 9:00 pm #

    Very disappointed in this site! Wavee will be investigated.

  73. Virginia March 22, 2011 at 11:33 am #

    I wish I had read these complaints before I bought paid for an I pod. all I ever got was a conformation of my purchase and a charge to my bank account.
    My bank has been investigate Wawvee frauds with no success.
    I’ll never shop on theinet again!

  74. Erick March 25, 2011 at 11:54 am #

    Hi everybody. I signed up for an account over the weekend just to see how this whole penny auction system worked. I never saw any notice that I would be billed as other have reported, and was charged $79.00.

    After at least a dozen requests for a refund I was told each time that the credits I paid for were non-refundable, no exceptions.

    Left with no good options I decided to flood their support system and email accounts with requests for refunds. So I finally just got my refund after sending ~300 emails and support tickets to them. Give it a shot. It only took me a couple hours to send all those messages.

    Here’s how to do it: go to http://wavee.zendesk.com/anonymous_requests/new and fill out the form and hit the submit button. This will create a support ticket in their system that they will have to deal with, one at a time. Very annoying. Just keep sending them.

    I then also sent about 300 refund request emails to the following addresses: support@wavee.com, Wavee Sales , info@wavee.com, support@wavee.zendesk.com.

    You can do this quickly by sending a message. Then go to your sent items, find the message you just sent and hit “reply all”, and hit send. Repeat as much as you want.

    It worked for me. It might work for you.

    Good luck.

    I was scammed by Wavee auctions but I did not take it lying down. So far, they say I’ll recover $71.50 of my $75.00 & I will get my other $3.50 out of them. This is about principle @ this point. This is a SCAM.
    I consider myself a careful consumer when it comes to using my debit card on line. But on 3/01/11, I was surfing the web & came across Wavee. The site was intriguing. It shows a lot of endorsements, from the BBB, ABC, NBC, BusinessWeek, Channel 11 news (I’m working w/Val on this matter) & they even boost, winning an award from the Technology Associate of Georgia, Top Ten Innovative Technology Companies Award. So I wanted more information. To get further information, the site asks for a card number, I looked around the page & saw nothing stating my card would be charged @ this point, so I put my card info in. Then BAM!!! I see they charged me $75.00, WHAT???? I immediately called Wavee & told them what happened. Their response, too bad for you, we will not refund you your money. And now you can’t reach anyone @ their posted & non posted phone numbers. So I called my bank, Wells Fargo. They’ll help me w/ this, right? Long story there too, but that’s a different rant. The short story, no, they won’t. But I did not give up there. I have contacted Channel 11 & other authors of positive articles concerning Wavee & asked them, if they are aware that Wavee has turned out to be nothing but a scam? Most are, & they offered to try & help me. I also went to their Facebook page & started posting, & they started deleting my post & soon blocked me. Because, when I saw what they were doing, I started pasting my post over & over. I then starting posting & pasting under my puppies account, & we did the above all over again. We played cat & mouse for quite a while. :)
    I received an email @ 8:00 a.m. the next morning & a phone call around 1:00 p.m. the next day telling me, I would be receiving a refund within 4 business days w/ a confirmation number. Today is the 4th day & I have not received it as of yet, but I won’t stop until I do. I also want to get the word out about Wavee & the scam they are running. These guys are straight up CROOKS. I don’t want them getting to our seniors or you.
    Sincerely, L. Lambert

    I won an item in 12-27 here it is July and still have not recieved a product have written on there web site and was told that the item I won was very popular and they were having a hard time getting them. they were still selling them on their site you would think if they couldn’t fill an order form Dec. you might want to quit selling an item till you can catch up on the one’s they have already sold.Now for quite a while you could not get on there web site to ask about the product you won. They have made a lot of money out of ripping people off when they take your money for shipping for a product they have not even shipped

  78. penny-auction-expert July 16, 2011 at 7:44 am #

    Carolyn,

    Wavee is being forced to pay restitution for their lack of shipping. See this article for more information: http://www.11alive.com/news/article/197304/40/Wavee-Shuts-Down–Agrees-to-Pay-Customers

  79. Jose Jimenez October 21, 2011 at 7:36 am #

    A year ago a purchased from wavee and haven’t received anything so far. They’ve promised delivery by 8-15 and nothing yet. It’s very upseting about this co. Everything they promise is a lie. I’m still waiting on my TV and nothing. I hope I get my stuff soon. I wish I can contact someone directly and give a piece of my mind.
