GREAT deals can be found on eBay if you're patient . . .
eBay tends to get a bad/negative rap for many reasons indifferent, right, and wrong.
There are occasionally great deals to be found on eBay . . . if we're patient along with luck and timing.
This discussion is about such.
Last Sunday, nine (9) auctions were ending for carded modern 21STCT ULTIMATE SOLDIER items (mint on card/never from the package). The starting bid was $5.00 each for item. I patiently watched each item and decided to snipe them at the last possible moment the old fashioned way. I figured the items were likely to be watched by others given the low starting bid price, but nothing ventured nothing gained.
As the bidding time for each item winded down, I got my bid in for each item with around six to seven seconds left. I won all nine (9) items at $5.00 each.
- 82nd Airborne Infantry
- MAC-V SOG Blister Carded Figure
- U.S. Army Platoon Leader
- U.S. Army Ranger
- U.S. Modern Infantry
- U.S. Modern M-249 SAW Gunner
- U.S. Modern Military Police
- U.S. Special Forces CQB
- USMC Modern Force Recon
Postage/shipping for the entire lot was $20.00.
The items arrived today well packed.
Each item was basically $7.22 a piece. You don't find such bargains like that anymore nowadays online or retail. I felt like it was the good old days many years back when we could find such deals at retail during close outs and mark downs.
I left immediate positive feedback to the seller thanking him for the great deal and prompt delivery.
Great deals can be found and had on eBay from time to time. It's all about luck, patience, and timing.
