Buying on Ebay can be a great experience if you know how to search the right way. This is going to be a short post but to the point. To get the best deals you will want to wait until late in the day and watch for auctions that end at a strange time. Take your timezone into consideration and look for items while most people are sleeping.
New sellers don't always pay attention to the time they are listing their auctions. As a result, they oftentimes will end an auction after midnight or in the middle of the night. If it's a great product with no reserve and the bid started at 99 cents, imagine what you can get! I've gotten some great deals late at night.
