    The girl to ask about this is Wiccy, she deals on this site quite alot, there are catches to it though, so be warned, i think they charge you for bidding, weather you get the item or not!

    I looked into this and yes it's not as cheap as it looks! You have to buy your bids in advance and there isn't ever a set end time for an auction so you might be winning and then they add another 5 mins and the bids begin to fly in again and you end up out of pocket. Watch a few to see how it goes, there is a method you can use but it costs.

    I wouldn't trust that website.

    If it was all it's cracked up to be, it'd be more popular than eBay!!

    pmsl i see you found my photo of mother lmfao hehe:eek:ut: :001_tt2: :eek:hmy: :smilewinkgrin:

    What a reputation tut tut oh well................

    Swoopo................you do pay for your bids, and once youve bid youve lost your money, even if you dont win the item! I find its best to leave bidding until the very last minute say on 2 seconds, but then of course so does everybody else lol. Ive even tried stayin up in the wee small hours to bag a bargain, but hey guess what lol so did everybody else.
    At the end of the day, you have to be carefull and as with all auctions, put a limit price in your head and dont go over it, what ever auction site you use!

    Ive only ever been lucky on there once, it was just fortunate timing as it was something i wanted for my nintendo wii, it was the wii fit game & balance board, and i was lucky and got it for just 15quid inc p&p.

    If your a member on there, read all the help first before you bid, and then its just the luck of the draw really, but dont forget they are out to make money, and you lose your bids whether you win the item or not!

    Entirley up to you if you choose to go on or not i aint tellin ya too lmao.:smilewinkgrin:

    I would be very careful with sites like these, and really just use sites that you know and trust for online purchasing.

    I totally agree with you huni, and its soooooo easy to get hooked on the bidding when you think your getting a bargain, but at the end of the day your not!
