If your new to eBay and want to bid , save the item to your save box and wait nearer the time.
I see so many people bidding days befor the sale is up and all you are doing is upping the price lol
As a seller thats great but not if your trying to buy the item.
Yes i know I'm cutting my nose of by telling you this but if it saves you money why not.
People like myself who have been a member for a while do not bid till the last moment and if you know how fast your computer is you can general win the item your after by seconds.
Check out the prices know how much you wish to pay , dont get cought up in a bidding game, remember most stuff you are buying is 2nd or even 3rd hand
Good luck to you.
