I HATE the last few minutes of eBay auctions where (the smart people) all leave it till the very last minute to bid. It's VERY frustrating to have watched an auction for days and lose it at the last.
How do people do the eBay thing (outside of the constant page refreshing?) best?
What I usually do is open about 3-5 pages, all with different offers at the ready. I then wait until the last 30 seconds and start putting in offer after offer until everyone else has lost. It's always hard to judge the best time to put in the offers, of course.
Are there any programs that win auctions for you; the sort that auto outbid everything? :?
