Sniped!!!!

Recommended Posts

I was bidding on two pieces for the old school Diamond Back build I am putting together with my 12 year old son. At the last second ~~ sniped!!! It's ok ~~ that was as high as I was going to go ~~ but just the feeling of being outbid at the last second ~~ aaarrrggghhh!!

Yeah....It's kind of a bummer....especially after 5-days and 23-hours,and you were all ready to bolt those bars on,when they came in the mail,and in that last 4-seconds-Gone..!..To some better 'funded'guy in Minnesota,who doesn't really need 'em,but wants to have a spare pair on his wall......Ooops,I degress.!.(Every once in a while,I will email the hi-bidder(sniper!) and congratulate them on their win,like in a chess game.!.).

If u cant beat em.... join em www.auctionsniper.com

 

There are other reasons for using a "proxy bidder" program

 

A=working

B=meeting

C=no pc access (no power, factory worker, etc....)

D=sleeping (especially if you are bidding on items overseas)

E=forgetting to bid in the last few mins

 

u dont need your pc on for the sniper to work as your bid is uploaded to their snipe server

Man to see it sniped in the last four seconds is akin to having the devil biting on your ass!

 

I feel your pain man. If it makes you feel any better, I only have ONE successful E-bay story, the rest have all gone wrong. I've even had a couple of times when i've been the only bidder, offered what was asked, and still seen the item re-listed a couple of days later!

BTW, if you get sniped at the end with your MAX bid, does it really matter how you lost?
