+ Retail Value:
- Current Bid:
- Bid Credits Used x $0.65
- Taxes & Shipping Fees:
88% or $43.94
So the winner really spent 65 bucks, plus S&H for a 50 dollar item.
How on earth does 65 bucks for a 50 dollar item create a net savings of $43.94?
Dayum! People be stoopid!
the "winner" put in 49 bids, so if he bought them as cheap as possible which is .65 ea, then that = $31.85 + the bid amount of $1.56 to shipping/taxes of $4.50 equals a total of $37.91 for 50 bids.
So this means he bought these 50 bids for $0.76 each!!!! Proof that people are IDIOTS !! and who would spend a $1000 to buy bids which don't guarantee you ANYTHING at all........
at this point, I'm going to just roll with Tango and say the heck with it, throw my hands in the air and just let the idiots that want to get sucked into those sites meet their financial demise.
and just think of the profits on this one, it's not like anyone had to "make" the bids or that there's any overhead in producing bid packs, it's the equivalent of our gov't printing new money.... hell, we'll just make more!!
at 156 bids, they're looking at a min profit of around $100+ off this auction........ Damn, if only I had no moral backbone to take advantage of morons.......
