I just wanted to express how ridiculous the bidders of the Verizon Smart Rewards are. I am on this site daily and have done quite well with the rewards. There's a few things I have noticed:
1. Most auctions are won by the last bidder before the time runs out. So why do people continue to bid hours before the scheduled end? People shouldn't start bidding till, at the earliest, the last minute. (It makes me wonder if there are Verizon/Destination Rewards bots that drive up the bids)
2. A lot of auctions are for Restaurant.com gift certificates. We all know how easily affordable these things are, so why do people waste their points on these things?
3. I just recently noticed an auction for a $25 Verizon gift card finish at 26,000 points. This is insane. Verizon occasionally offers this gift card in their daily deal for 2,500 points.
These things have bothered me for a while and I just need a place to vent about them. Have any of you also noticed these things?
