Sniping is the best way to get things cheap on ebay as most people just don't understand ebay and don't put their real max bid in! Ived saved thousands over the years!

The best way I have found is to put an early low bid, let others beat it with their max bid, and then come back just before the end and bid your max. But base your max bid not on what you would 'like' to pay, but on an amount it wouldn't pee you off if someone gets it for the next minimum increment.

Also I do frequent searches using the 'Newly listed' option, and in 'All categories' - some of my best bargains have not been bids. Recently got new Raspberry Pi 3B+ (with case/PSU/SD) for £29 whilst two bid items hit £45 and £65 for used Pi 3B+ alone.
