I've wanted the soundtrack to Resident Evil 2 for a long time now, but it's very difficult to find online. I finally found it on eBay a while ago, and I bid $25.00 on it. All other bidders were no match for me, until the final seconds of the auction, when some ass-fucking sniper took it away from me with a higher bid. (I hate snipers, but that's another entry.) I made up my mind that if I ever saw the item up for auction again, I'd have to bid as high as $40 and hope that covered it. $40 is a lot to spend on music, even something this rare.

Anyway, that's about the time when I discovered eBay Saved Searches. I had a search run for "Resident Evil 2 soundtrack" and nothing came up for months except other items with similar titles. Finally, today, I got a hit, and went right to it. It had just started, and I was about to enter my bid of $40.00 when I noticed that I could "buy it now" for $10.99. So I did! eBay Saved Searches saved me time and money!

(Look, I know this sounds like a cheesy testimonial in a TV or radio commercial, but I don't mean it that way. I'm sincerely very pleased with that service. Plus I'm happy to be getting this outstanding soundtrack in the mail after years of wanting it.)

Same here. About two years ago, I made up my mind that I was going to sell my old comic book collection on eBay. There were about 1200 items, to be sold 1-5 at a time. Well, I got through about 150 items before I got sick and tired of people bitching about packaging. First I shipped 'em in manilla envelopes that were too prone to being ripped by machines, then I shipped 'em in padded envelopes that weren't sent fast enough, then I sent 'em in cardboard Priority Mail envelopes that were too prone to letting the comics get damaged. No matter what I tried, even letting people choose what kind of packaging they wanted, nobody seemed satisfied. I got sick of the hassle and gave up. Now Kelly is reading what's left of my collection and I use eBay just for buying.

P.S.: I would be a little more inclined to put up with the hassle if I was making more than a quarter an item. :-\
