I usually go to ebay.com or amazon.com before I go out to shop, just to see how great of a deal I can find! Do you browse before you go out to buy or do you just get it at the local store? I have found great items that are new in the box for up to 75% off what I would have paid in the store! I highly recommend you all check it out! If you have an ebay store or listing, you could leave your link here and I'll check it out too!

cassiem0221 thank goodness i didn't use my name which is also cassie. I shop on ebay first what is better than to develop your reputation and have guaranteed products. I do my research and have fun shopping. I also crave clothes so I buy wear once or twice and then it is time to sell. What is a better justification for shopping.

I use ebay and amazon usually. I work so much during the week, this helps cut down on shopping time I would have to do when there are other things I need to take care of.

Sometimes I buy things at ebay. Not everything but little things or things you can´t buy in Holland. It always depence on how much it costs offcaurse but I find it a good site to buy things at. Even when you don´t have ti bid and you have to pay a surtan price it´s always cheaper than somewere else.

i shop very rarely on ebay because now days you get cheated by the sellers who take the money and deliver the old product

I normally look for bargains for christmas like 2 months before and see what deals I can get. If I cant find what I'm looking for at a local store then I go onto ebay. I normally find what I im looking for.

When I see something I like in the stores, I always check to see if I can get it online cheaper. Sometimes I find a cheaper price on ebay. Sometimes you can get the item cheaper by buying it from the online store instead of in the store itself. I've also found great sites for online coupons. Couponmountain.com is one of my favorites.

I had listed my items on ebay, but the response i got is not so good. I dont know why because my items r of latest fashion and on wholesale rates but then also i was disappointed. I tried to sell most latest fashion Purses, bags, belts, tassels, tiebacks. Infact i got many fake buyers. But 1 thing is very gud of ebay is its safe. They protect u from fake buyers. Its good for trade and for selling also but only on 1 condition if ur luck is with u.

If I'm looking to buy something that I know I don't mind getting used, or something I need to save some money on, or something that I know will be hard to find, I go to Ebay first for sure. I've really only bought a few things on Ebay so far, though. My favorite purchase was a PDA that I bought so that I could type notes while away from home. I really wanted something with more of a computer keyboard styled keyboard, and they just don't seem to make anything like that anymore. I was able to do research online and found an older style PDA that people were still selling on Ebay at the time. I bought it for under $100 and it was still working the last I checked. I would definitely consider buying more on Ebay if I had more money to spare, lol.

Ebay is great for everyone!!! I suggest that everyone go to it at least once and check it out! There are so many great deals on Ebay that you could never find in stores. If you are wanting new items off ebay I will share a little trick I use to find new items that are in the stores on ebay for HALF THE PRICE. What I do is go to the original website of the item I would like to purchase and then I copy and paste the name of the item on to ebays site and I usually get a few items that pop up for a much cheaper price. I recommend ebay for all your shopping needs. It is great, and if you really like it you should try selling your stuff for some extra cash!

I don't buy too much on eBay. I do some casual buying of some magic the gathering articles but nothing more then that. You can find good deal and some bizarre offers too. It's just a matter of finding what you are looking for.

In the past, I've only purchased a couple of things on ebay. Now that I've started selling, I've started shopping more too. I figure it's a good, easy way to use the money in my paypal account. I don't have to worry about if I have enough, I just go ahead and bid. I've already gotten a Christmas gift for SD, and a new holster for DH. And it doesn't feel like I've had to spend anything! :)

my mates bought an old book and thought they'd paid a lot as it was a tenner.But then they had it valued and a dealer offered them US$120.

I buy HEAPS from eBay, it's a lot of fun, you get things much cheaper but sometimes you have to watch out with postage coz some people like to start their items low but if they don't get as much as they had hoped, they add extra to postage. Otherwise it's GREAT! I have bought so much from eBay & will continue to do so - especially since everything gets delivered & i dont have to go to the crowded shops & fight with people!

I love shopping on eBay. I do it all the time, whether there is a specific purpose or if I am just browsing. For clothes, DVDs, CDs, and other small electronics, eBay provides good quality from trusted sellers and lower prices. It beats having to go to the store to pay full price for something when I can get it at a substantial discount on eBay. Also, when I was in college, I used eBay's site, half.com, for my school books. They were often much cheaper than even some of the discount sites online and have a wide variety of school books. It was always very easy for me to find the book I need at a great price. Long Live eBay!
