If you are an ardent Ebay user you may be wondering how you can find the best discounts and deals before anybody else and save yourself some serious cash. Don’t be beaten in the bidding war. Get there first, find the hidden deals and track down those uber bargains ahead of the crowd. Here’s how!
Look out for bargains in your local area. These usually need to be collected in person so you’ll be saving on delivery charges straight away. Also, local items won’t have as much interest as national items as not as many people will be looking for them. Before you buy an item listed halfway across the country, run a local search. You might be surprised what you can find on your own doorstep!
Hurrah for Bad Spelling!
There aren’t many times in life where bad spelling can be seen as a positive, but on Ebay a misspelt item could bring in some major savings. Many people have found some great bargains simply by looking for misspelt items. There are even websites dedicated to finding those wrongly spelled items for you. Check out www.goofbid.com and www.fatfingers.com to find some profitable examples of illiteracy for yourself!
