SEE! Never hurts to ASK!

  1. I saw a reversible tote pop up on eBay today...gently used, pictures looked great, with a starting bid of 9.99. No bids yet.

    contacted the seller and asked if she'd do a BIN.

    She said "sure - make me an offer...I had to relist due to a NPB, that bid was $200"

    I offer her $189 plus shipping ($11) so $200 total.

    AND SHE ACCEPTED!

    I'm soooooo happy. Getting the bag for below retail...and it's the one I want. WOOHOO!

    AND she lowered the shipping to $9...:yahoo: got it for $198!

    I am SOOOO on a purse ban right now...:banned:
     
  2. Ooooh nice! Can't wait for more pics. Excellent for you!
     
  3. OMG...that is totally freakin' awesome! Jealous now...want that tote so bad but I am also on a self-imposed buying ban! Great deal for you deweydrop!
     
  4. Congratulations, got your fav bag!! You should be very proud of yourself!!!!
     
  5. Whenever I see something I really want and there's no BIN listed I always ask the seller if they'd be willing to add it to their listing. I'd say that my success rate is 50/50. I think a lot of sellers don't put them on because, unless there is a reserve, the BIN gets killed as soon as a bid is placed.
     
  6. actually I'm a smidge disgusted in myself! heheh

    I bought a shoulder tote at the outlet on the 9th.
    A legacy flap off eBay on the 17th...
    and now this! :wtf:

    I NEED TO STOP! (but really - I will! because I now have this bag and my gorg green Hamptons bag to get me through the summer....NO MORE COACH! NO MORE COACH!)

    yeah...I said that with conviction? right? heheheheh
