You are bidding on the entire lot, not one box. Read the post again.

Default Just a thought...

I'm not worried if I lose by a penny but next time maybe there should be a minimum number or percentage to advance the bids. (I probably should be spending the money on something else anyway)

Thanks,
Vinny

I agree. I think all bids need to be in even dollars. No need to bid pennies. Dollar increments should be fine.

Now...how do I snipe something like this? LOL

Uh...hello. Our posts about "bid increments" were made before Blowout decided to have bid increments. We made our suggestions, and they listened.

Welcome to the forum, but try to know what you're talking about before you post.

so I'm guessing winning bid was $225????.....looking forward to more of these auctions, I like the idea...my only thing would be non-payers who would ruin the chance for others...
