I have been outbid on two bags in 24 hours. Both times, I waited until the last 30 seconds to bid, put in a bid at least $50 more than what the bid was at the time (both bags went for under $350, so I thought that was enough). Both times I have been outbid by the same person -- a reseller! Both bags were kind of rare too ... one I've never seen on ebay before, and the other rarely. I know it's my fault for not putting in a higher bid but it really annoys me that the person is probably going to sell them for a lot more money because they're MPRS and the sellers were not. I just wanted them for myself, haha. Also, I stayed up past my bedtime to bid on one, so I'm cranky. I wasn't as cranky until I saw the username again ... that's just freaky. I was wrong to assume I was the only one stalking bags that needed a little TLC. I'm guessing the person uses one of those sniping services (because, literally, I was winning with 2 sec to go on both). I used one once, but it felt kind of wrong to me, so I didn't do it again. I always wondered what would happen if two people signed up to snipe the same auction ... I guess whoever put in the highest bid would get it? I guess I think that part of the ebay game is watching you're auction until it's over ... and if someone snipes it, you really don't have a chance and are wasting time!
