Best times to buy

Everyone likes a bargain and shopping on Ebay usually means you want to a save a bit of money on your purchase.
If the item you are looking for has multiple listings and is usually auctioned you can pay less if you purchase the item  "off peak".
Look for items being sold Monday Tuesday & Wednesday late evening and all week early morning. Friday & Saturday evenings before the pub closes are also good times as people go out a lot.
Avoid Thursday evening as this is pay day for a lot of people and also Sunday evening early on.( I think some people tend to get rid of the remainder of their weekend allowance before work on Monday!)
Try to avoid placing multiple bids and getting caught up in an auction as this just raises the price. Decide what you want to spend and stick with it. Just place that amount as your bid and ebay will bid on your behalf. Try to avoid checking the item as it comes up to close or you could get caught up in it and spend more than you want to.
Good Luck
Happy Bidding
