Good evening~ My husband and I just joined haggle.com. They have some neat items there that you might be able to get for dirt cheap. But then again, you might. I see some people get some items soooo cheap, and I wonder if they're actual people who are not affiliated with the website or if they're just planted there to draw people to the site. We tried to get a few things last night and couldn't get a single thing. BUT you pay something like SIXTY-NINE CENTS just for ONE BID! Tell us what you know and what you think about this when you have a second! Also, let us know if you have tips for using the site to OUR advantage instead of being taken advantage of! Thanks for your help! ~artsyfartsygal :)

Good morning~ You could try and see if you could get www.haggle.com, though I don't recommend it. We spent a great deal of money bidding on items the other day, and we lost all that bidding money with no auctions won! That was a huge disappointment, as we do NOT have any money to spare at ALL! I don't think it's worth your time and money. But again, I'm hoping some people who use it will reply. ~artsyfartsygal

Hi! I work for Haggle. Haggle is owned by Infospace, a public company - you can find the press release announcing Haggle and the Infospace public filings and financials at Yahoo finance (I'd paste the links here, but my rating is not high enough to paste). You can also see the Haggle user community here: www.facebook.com/haggle We don't use robots, shills, or any other means to drive the price of the auctions. The auctions end when the clock reaches zero and there are no more bidders, simple as that. Please make sure to read the FAQ and tips before bidding: www.haggle.com/home/help

Hello, and thank you for your reply. Thank you for identifying yourself as part of the haggle staff. I hope that others who do not work for haggle will also respond, but it's good to hear you say you don't use robots, etc. Unfortunately, we spent a lot of money for nothing on there recenly and will be extremely careful (and reluctant) to continue to use it. I check it to see how the auctions are doing. But many bidders are very persistent, and I don't wish to continue risking and losing money only to gain nothing. It's a great concept, but I doubt it will work for us. If you have any suggestions as to how to make it work for us, let us know. Thanks, artsyfartsygal
