I actually lost a bike using sniper even though I was the highest bidder :evil:

I'd set an odd amount, something like £102.76p. But I found out after the auction had been increasing in £1.05 increments, so the winning bid was £102.05, I hadn't bid enough to go to £103.05. It may be the winning bidder could have being going higher anyway, but it felt like I lost for the sake of 29p.

Not used a snipe since.

That's not the fault of the sniper though is it? That's just a case of your max bid not being high enough lol

I was against snipers for some of the reasons mentioned but had a quick use of gixen (dont think i won anything because i used sniper), all fine. Ebay is essentially the same thing.
