For 270258417532 the bid increment above $500 is $10 so your bid was not high enough to be registered in the last seven seconds of the auction, by then the auction price had reached $510, so $520 was the minimum acceptable bid. Interestingly this is a case where your snipe would have been better placed earlier as before 7 seconds before the auction ended the auction price was lower and your bid would have been accepted.

For 150274438091, if you look at the listing it says:

'The seller ended this listing early to sell to the high bidder(s) at current bid price.'

So it was no longer running when gixen came to place a bid.
