    Bahhhhhh I hate EBay

    Im in the middle of waiting to bid on a Marino Jersey Auction and an Aikman jersey auction (Im getting it for my wife because she really wants it and after having to carry my daughter and being a good sport about it for the first 6 months, she more than deserves it) that end within something like 5 minutes from one another. I hate it because in each case, if you bid with TOO much time theres a good shot at being outbid, but if you wait too long the auction expires.

    Anyone else here do the Ebay thing?

    I do ebay, the thing is that you have to make your bid high, it only goes up to the maximum if someone else bids your maximum, and it goes up proportionally before that when others bid.

    Is that why

    Sometimes Ill go to bid and no matter what I bid, I still get a message saying Ive been outbid? It most recently happened to me in an auction for a Jason Taylor jersey.. I bid 50 bucks, then 51,52,53 and 54 and each time got the same message.. The bid price was listed at 49 on the main screen and in the bid history

    I've been purchasing auctions on ebay for a couple of years now. What I've learned is that in order to win an auction you have to wait virtually a minute or less before the auction ends to bid and have a legitimate chance at winning it. Auctioning on ebay is a cut throat business(I'm putting it mildly too. )

    I wasn't kidding you about waiting until the last possible second to bid on an auction. Sorry to hear that you didn't get the Marino jersey.

    Ah its ok pal.. Alls well ends well.. I won the auction for my wife's jersey.. That makes up for the loss of the Marino jersey.. Plus I think I just cheated and bought another one with the Buy It Now option, but the one I got is a XXL and Im going to swim in it. I wear a size Large (will usually get XL for the baggy affect).

    Hello.... I am an eBay addict... phew that was hard... lmao.


    LOL... no really, I don't buy much, if anything, on eBay but I do like to look and wish!

    I've bought one... two... three... ah crap, who counts? I've bought some things, but nothing over $30.00. A few things for the car, and my room. Nothing big.

    But yea... I LOVE eBay...

    eBay tips of the day:

    Watch the shipping, you may think you are getting a good deal

    Wait wait... no... one more minute... NOW! BID! HURRY! That's how you win.... :evil:
