    I am trying to win some Frogskins on eBay and some idiots are bidding 3 days before it's end. :mad: I hate when people do this, why raise the price 3 days before it's over? I never bid until the last few minutes!

    Sometimes I like to bid early just to raise the price! LOL

    I always bid my max amount i would be willing to pay for whatever i find. and then i leave it alone. Its funny cause it really seems to discourage people from bidding.

    It depends on the auction. If I see something that is already close to the price I'm looking to pay then I won't bid until the last minute. If I'm willing to pay $100 and no more and it's at $20 I'll bid $100 early. If I get out bid at the last minute, no biggie.

    I have had a lot of instances where I bid my max amount early and then people will up the bid a few dollars at a time to try and find your limit. I now wait till there are 20-30 seconds to avoid that behavior.
