    Oh quiltluvr, you have seen the pattern of my life. I would be ashamed if I wasn't so happy. :D :D :D :D :D
    Both of these statements describe my warning and joy for you!!! How awesome! I've always been afraid to bid on anything because I've heard so many horror stories.
    Hugs,

    I LOVE Auction Sniper. Go to www.auctionsniper.com. It is free to sign up, and then you get three free snipes. After that, you pay a nominal fee (I don't remember the details) that is charged to your paypal account every three months based on how many snipes you got. I spent (don't tell anybody, ok) over $1,000.00 one month, and I think my total fee to Auction Sniper was about $4.00. So it isn't expensive. And you don't have to sit by the computer waiting for the end of the auction. You put in your bid, and auction sniper will place it however many seconds before the end you tell it to. I use 5 seconds.

    If you sign up with them, use me as a referral. it's gaigai, same as here.

    Good sniping!

    It really helps to be a late night person when it comes to eBay. I recently got 20 blades for $35. It was a lot of money, but I feel so rich, I know I can change the blade any time and not worry about limping along with an old blade.
    When I am doing a last minute auction I set the kitchen timer and then go in at the last minute, bid about 30 seconds. I have gotten some great deals on fabric that way, also.

    With auction sniper you don't have to worry about setting the timer, wondering if your server will put it in on time, or even being outbid in the last 30 sec. (which I have had happen!)

    Thanks again everyone! Now that I have all those new blades, I'll switch back to using the 45mm from the 60mm. I think I only have less than 10 blades for the 60.

    Wouldn't ya' know the first listing was for items up for bid that expired in 7 minutes and no bids. I dutifully keep a vigil, updating every 30 seconds, waiting.....waiting.....no bids.....it's getting closer........down to two minutes.....I made my move at less than a minute and a half and bid the starting price. I couldn't believe it! NO OTHER BIDS----I WON!!!!!!!!

    I just got the package today. :mrgreen:

    Oh, what was that? What did I get? That would be so cruel if I didn't tell you, huh??

    I got 2 five blade packs of 45mm , 5 single 45mm blades, 2 28mm blades, AND a new, long lasting 60mm chenille blade. All Olfa products, brand new in original packaging.

    For how much??? Ready for this----$15.00! BAM!!!!!! AND-----FREE SHIPPING!!!!

    Oh, my! I've just got to sit and catch my breath for goodness sakes!


    Only here can I carry on like this and someone NOT think I'm totally crazy! But for those that do, watch it! I KNOW how to find you!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
    WTG Girl! What a great buy! Now you can do the dance.
