Anyone know of a good one? I'm hesitant to install freeware and proceed to put my username/password onto it, but I'm also sick of losing at the last second. What's something any of you guys use/have used?

Here is a tip: bid the maximum amount of money you are willing to pay for the item. If you lose, you are either a cheapskate or someone is paying too much for it.

You're right... But it gets frustrating losing!

The first step is admitting I have a problem...

As a Chiefs fan, I'd think you would be used to it by now.

Technically, however you are much better off sniping. Because you do not show you intent, until it is too late for the current high bidder or potential bidder to counter your actions.

However, make sure when you snipe that you put in the highest amount that you will pay, because not a chance for a rebid, if your bid is unsucessful.

Here is a free webbased one. www.myibay.com

Don't bid until there's <30 seconds left then do your high bid.

i was sniping back when you had to do it manually and ebay didn't automatically raise someone else's bid to cover yours if they were willing to pay more. i would put things on my watch list and never touch them... my first bid would be with 5 or 10 seconds left. it was just smart to do that way.
