So i've known about ebay for a while. I've used it before. I like it I think its a great website. Well recently my boyfriend "discovered" ebay and he thought it was just great! He was on it everyday buying stuff on ebay. I started making fun of him cause he was on it all the time. Well of course I got interested in what he was buying. It got me thinking. Hey I need a new ipod case...I need some new skirts too...Hm maybe I can buy a new cell phone...Ya so now look at me the ebay junkie. Now my boyfriend is the one laughing at me. Actually telling me to stop buying so much stuff. I on the other hand am like ITS ONLY 99 CENTS!! Lol Anyhow are you having issues with 99 cent items on ebay? Do you buy things on ebay all the time. What are you buying?

I have been on ebay for a couple of years now, and I have bought movies, cd's, video games, and other accessories on there. The past couple of months I just started selling on there as well...Mostly clothing. I have never had to deal with a rude buyer or seller (guess I'm lucky), and have never had a bad experience. I like the 99 cent bids, but they usually end up a lot more than that before it's over!

I have been registered with Ebay for quite a few years now, but I consider my self to be far from an addict. I do like to browse the computer section to see what is on offer, and have bought a few things from the site over the years, but I would not purchase anything unless I really wanted it.

YES! And I am planning to start my own selling on there. It's very convenient an I need extra moula.! It is indeed very addicting, I used to be on there all the time when I was in middle school/high school. I was in my retro-80s phase where I would dress like I was out of an 80's movie. It was all fun and finding clothes like that was so easy on Ebay. You will be amazed what people sell on Ebay.

I don't think I'm an Ebay junkie, but I am on Ebay several times a week. Since I get cash back on every auction I win (and I hope you do too...you should, Ebay pays cash back to auction winners!) I really only buy what I need ... supplies for my crafting shop, stuff for my sons and my hubby buys some collectibiles now and then. But we only buy if the price is really, reall good. I don't like to pay full price if I don't absolutely have to. Over the last 3 weeks we bought 5 things from Ebay, with 2 of them from the same seller.

Creationsbyrobin, I see you have mentioned cashback from Ebay several times. How does one do that? Is it through the paypal card?

I have been both a buyer and a seller on eBay for a number of years now and have to say that as a buyer I am always happy to find bargains. I have sold a lot of things I no longer need on eBay too. Last time I cleared out my cupboards I sold everything on eBay and got good prices too.
