Well, I have two cardinal rules when it comes to bidding on VCDs. 1) I
bid on it if it starts over $10. 2) I stop bidding at $25. The closer the
final bids
come to $25, the greater the chance I will stop bidding on the VCD. So
far, I've
won 3 VCDs like this, and it works out great for my budget. Funny thing
is, I
won my F-91 VCD because the official winner was some jerk/idiot who
jumped his bid in at the very last minute, not realizing what he was
on. You can imagine my surprise when the seller wrote me up asking if I
be willing to take the VCD for the winning bid, but without any shipping.
Can you say that I jumped?
