I just finished losing about 20 auctions in a row inside a group! I was bidding on a product available through multiple sources, some of them on auction, some of them on BuyNow. I had checked the lowest buy now price + shipping, and set my bids on auctions to about $0.25 less than the lowest BuyNow price. I figured people would be going to auction to get a better price than with BuyNow price. Boy was I wrong, they did absolutely no research! I was consistently losing bids by $1 or $2 over the best BuyNow price. This is a huge percentage difference considering that the item was less than $5! Surprised

I could've tried looking for more auctions of the item, but I had had enough. I just went with the BuyNow price. I figured it was the best price if people are going to be bidding that stupidly over this price!

Yeah, I know, but when you're bargain hunting, you're in a sense actually hunting, and not buying it at the supermarket. It seems if you're willing to wait for your game to get into position, and it's snapped out by someone who should actually be buying it at the supermarket, it's a little annoying.
