    So I was getting SUPER excited at the prospect of having 2 "as new" gap maternity tops in a lovely BRIGHT SUMMER style (instead of the black/grey/dull colours that seem to permeate all of the maternity sections online!! :grr:) so it gets to like 20seconds to go and i'm the winner :wohoo: Then some cow-bag outbid me by TWENTY PENCE!!!!! :rofl: :rofl: I was GUTTED, so I bought 5 different tops instead :rofl:

    Pointless thread I know :dohh: lol

    I always have my max bid using unpredictable numbers in an attempt to outsmart last minute ninja's. For example £13.37 (unless bidding on geek stuff then 1337 wouldn't work :rofl:)

    Yeh the best thing to do it put a random few pence onto each bid , like £1.21 or something random, always does the trick!

    haha i can just imagine us all outbidding each other on stuff!

    Oh, another ebay tip, i search under 'baby' with nothing in the search bar but put nearest first. That way you can collect the item from the local area and save on the postage. Yesterday i picked up 8items of clothing, toys, game etc for £8 (99p each) , had i paid the postage it would have been well over £30! I've also seen loads of stuff that way that i might not have thought of.

    I hate it when that happens. Luckily I have figured out the system now though so don't get outbid very much anymore. Pretty much need to wait till the last 3 seconds to put in your bid. Then no one can bid past you but still enough time to put yours in. Sorry to hear you didn't get the tops though.

    You guys need to get sniping ! I use justsnipe.com if you cant beat em... join em. You put in your highest bid and it does it for you in the last 5 seconds.
