    Well, this was my first biding experience and I failed!
    I thought I would be real sneaky sneaky and bid with 25 seconds to go! Ha, cluster eff.
    6 more dudes outbid me in the next 20 or so seconds. Went for $265 + shipping.
    How do people time this so perfectly?

    they set a maximum bid amount, so if your current bid is outbid, it automatically bids for you to go the next bid increment. So sounds like a bunch of folks (6) had max bids and ratcheted up the price until the guy with the highest max bid won. I like how that works, since it lets you win at a lower price than your max bid if no one else bids

    Bummer!

    Wait not sure I dig it. So I can put in MY maximum bid amount somewhere in there? But it's out of sight, and nobody knows about it?
    Run that by me one more time please?

    LOL yup. Essentially, the computer bids on your behalf, so you don't have to sit there at 5AM right when the auction closes. When I was a kid I remember bidding against a guy for a model car. I'd put a bid in, and like clockwork he'd put a bid in a few seconds later. This kept going until we got slightly past a round number, and he didn't re-bid so I won the item.

    correct, no one can see your max and it automatically places a bid just above the other guys price (whatever the minimum bid increment is). So if he has one set, the 2 of you would ratchet up until one of you reaches the max you're willing to pay

    If you've ever had auction fever where you get caught up in the bidding and bid more than you planned, this solves that. You decide the max you are willing to pay in advance, enter that, and it only bids just above the last guys bid

    There used to be free sniping programs that bid for you - could bid in the last few seconds, but you could be outbid if you didn't have a high enough top limit. Happy hunting!
