Your Best EBay Bargins...

Wed Apr 12, 2006 7:15 am

I Just recently purchased 160 Subway 'Sub Club' Stamps... the ones that for every 8 you get a free 6" sub when you buy a coke...

They cost me about £6 inc postage and were a bargin... i'm eating so much cheap subway its great...

What have you recently purchased from eBay that was a REAL bargin...

Anybody noticed that you can't really sell stuff on Ebay any more? It seems to be so saturated now that you can hardly make a good deal, from a seller's point of view. I've earned a whole pile of $$$ being a seller on Ebay, but that was back in 2001.

I just got a 1/200 Lufthansa 744 (Herpa) that I purchased using Miles, to avoid expiry. The model retails for 44 Eur, so I thought about selling it on ebay. But then I see the same model on sale for 25, with few hours left to go. Doesn't seem to make any sense selling now. Rather keep that Boeing.

My best one was late last year when I bought a brand new pro weight replica Atlanta Thrashers jersey for $50 (These pro weight replicas run $199 in stores).

I bought a sofa for 10p. It was as good as new, and they delivered it to us for free as well. I also bought a computer without an operating system for £30, put Windows XP on and sold it for £130.

Been slowing accumulating the things I need for a home bar and found that decent bar mirrors were quite pricey (some as high as $50 or $75). Found this baby on eBay for a mere $8. Shipping was a little high, but I flippin' love this thing. The gold leaf/foil behind the lettering, the look of the 'etched' photo in the lower center.. Mirror measures about 2 feet by 3 feet, maybe a lil smaller.

Quite a steal if I do say so myself.

Only time I have ever bought anything on eBay was for sold out tickets to the Edinburgh Tatoo. Valued price £12 so £24 in total and payed $90 Canadian, great deal, eh! But the show was great and that was the only way to get the tickets.

I have sold tons of crap on eBay, but your right, it's a buyers market on eBay right now, the only time I made money was back in November when I bought 8 XBOX 360's the day they came out, threw them on a 24 hour auction and pulled in 1300.00 USD a piece, best idea of my life! Waiting outside was a little cold, but other than that it was gold!

If you ever want tickets to a Toronto show let me know. If you listen to the Fan 590 in Toronto you'll probably recognize the name Howie from Richmond Hill, he's a friend of the family and can get tickets to anything in Toronto and most venues in North America right up to about an hour before the show, but you do pay a premium of course. But hell, I got U2 tickets the day of the show, so I can't complain!

No bargains per se myself. Just a load of Cafe del Mar CDs I couldn't buy in the shops....well I could but I'd have paid £19 for a single CD.

www.fatfingers.co.uk is a great site. You type in what you are looking for and it searches ebay for all the possible misspellings!  biggrin

I would say those will be going away soon. Incredible theft of them here in the US by employees to sell em on eBay....the program was scrapped.

As for my best deal. 6 months of the Wall Street Journal for $26.

I haven't had many bargains on eBay in the last few years. I think most people are clue'd up enough about selling that the real "steals" aren't there anymore. I've only sold a couple of times and to be hosest it's been more hassle than it's worth.

I had my cell phone stolen, that model costs about $250 here in Nassau.

I found the same phone (condition: new) on eBay Germany for 70 Euros. As I still had the American charger, that was no problem.
