Default Experience with BidSync PLUS

Has anyone subscribed to BidSync PLUS (online bid notification service) and had any success? It sounds legitimate but I'd like to be sure before subscribing.

Thank you

Thank you
you can sign up for the free lists before you pay for it. GOOD LUCK as I have yet to see many mowing contracts in the states I have been watching. I could not see it paying for itself. But I have seen 1 or 2 pop up.

I have signed up for the free list/referrals. However the only bid opportunities that ever come up are on the Plus side yet they email me notifications anyhow. It seems that I have missed the chance to bid on over for 20 contracts so far. I just haven't been able to bring myself to pay the fee to see what they were.


I would like to hear from anyone that has participated in the premium side of their services whether it was worthwhile or not.

you can read what they are, and think about it 20 contracts would that pay for the service? It was pretty high.

About $380 for 6month plan and $499 for 12 month. That is for the regional state and local leads. It goes up from there with national, military, and government leads available.

It seems originally that the price was higher and even that when I broke it down per month it was something like $185. However, the same night this thread was started I received an email for a 6 and 12 month discount and went back and those were the prices on the info page.

What are you thinking now as far as pros and cons? Are you leaning more to one way or the other?
