    Ever stayed up to see if you win something on eBay?

    I'm staying up to see if I win an item on eBay I want. Have you ever done that, or am I crazy?
    There are 3 items I'm looking at from the same seller and if I win the item that ends first I'll bid on the others as I can then benefit from combined postage, but it's not worth it if I don't win the first item.
    I got my ebay plus points voucher today so I'm spending it

    What's that? I'll only bid on two of the three items if I win the first...damn the seller for listing it at 1.45am or something like that. It's not big or important, just convenient having it delivered and I get to spend my voucher.

    not really going to help the op in this instance is it, or can you set it up to only bid on something if you won the other

    Ah, thanks. I'll look into the bidsniper thing.
    eBay plus voucher - it was a trial eBay invited me to do, where every £1 = 1 point, and, 1 point = 1p in voucher. They also had a 3x point week and just a nice little bonus really.
    I'm not too sleepy, and not too much longer left. I'm drinking a hot chocolate, it's sooo good and making it worthwhile staying up!

    well sassie yes it would as bid sniper is used to bid at the last second from your highest big that you want to put in, and if your total highest bid hasn't been reached, it will beat the last bid put in by 50p at the last millisecond to make sure that you win it. so tbh bid sniper WOULD help the op

    Bid sniper looks good - though I hate it when people get in there are the last second, when there is 1 sec left and you think you've won then refresh and then see red cross. Maybe I'll turn into one of those people and pick me up some bargains!

    mod

    I've sat up to watch stuff I've been selling increase in price a good few times and I've sat up hitting the F5 key to see if I've won an item I'm bidding on a few times too

    i think its all part of the ebay playing game, using snipe is like just buying from a shop - lol

    Someone's bidding up, pretty much to what it costs in the shops now. Oh well, seems I'm not the only one staying up for this somewhat boring item!

    What are you buying?

    I won! I put in one last bid on them all and and I got the green tick on two of the three items.
    It was for The sanctuary hand stuff, it's soooo nice and saves me having to go to Boots in town, or online - I always end up buying things I don't really need, I get mesmorised by all the deals, Boots has that effect on me so it's safer this way!
    The santuary things I won were on 3 for 2 at Boots yesterday but the whole line I wanted has been taken offline, don't know why. I'm happy with my wins, fair prices a little cheaper than the 3 for 2, plus I get cashback and eBay plus points.

    Excellent.
