so im sure anyone who goes on ebay sees those auctions that start @ 1$ for a high priced item, and there is always a reserve. i despise these auctions. i wish people would just put the starting bid @ the reserve so i dont have to play guessing games and waste my time. well, there was something i wanted to get, i did a search on completed items, and found only one that ended around 60$ w/ 14 bids. i figure reserve is 45-50$. so i bid on another auction, high bid of 50$, and still didnt meet the reserve. i was pissed that i watched it all week, and still lose caus he wants to start @ 1$, so i emailed him. told him i was pissed, and that he definately just lost a sale, etc etc. yes, i know i sound like an ******* and its a selling tactic, but i was pissed. well, today i get one of those "second chance buy it now" emails to buy it @ 46$ + whatever the ridiculous shipping price is (like 20$ for an mp3 player).
so, my choice now is to bite the bullet and buy it from him, even though i dont support what hes doing
buy one from someone else for about 30$ more who knows how to sell...
let me know what you think. i have til tomorrow to buy this, but ill probably do it w/in the next 4-5 hours before i go to sleep so i dont forget about it
