    Ever go on an eBay shopping spree?

    I just won....

    Driver
    2 dozen golf balls
    golf shirt
    crapload of 5 hour energy
    bunch of razor blades

    I usually do this once a winter. I fear that the blades will be fake based on research after I bid.

    Now I have to sell some stuff to pay for it all. Good deals though.

    Re: Ever go on an eBay shopping spree?

    I think in the last couple months I have bought some new sunglasses and dress shoes.

    That is about the extent of any ebay shopping spree I have been on.

    Nike Sumo driver and Top Flight Gamer golf balls. Heard great things about the Gamers for their price. I got them for $16/dozen. Have played the D2 before and these are supposed to be a better ball.

    I now have 3 drivers so will be selling 2. Never hit a Nike before.

    Probably no louder than the Hibore I'm using now. I know what you mean. If it's long and straight I don't care if it squeals.

    Re: Ever go on an eBay shopping spree?

    I am going to be in the market for a new camera later this year and was wondering about ebay. I know some people have sold used cameras that way and am wondering how/if you can get some type of warranty if you buy something used. I've never used ebay at all so I don't know how safe it is for a high end item.

    I doubt you'll get any type of warranty on a used camera. You can probably get a good price on a new one but check the feedback for the seller and check the warranty. I'm not sure I'd get a used one.

    I've bought on e-bay before. It's sort of "buyer beware" though. You CAN get warranties through third party people, though. It's akin to buying the "extended warranty" you get offered at the chain stores. eBay: Warranty Services: Buyer Overview for details.

    Honestly, though, I'd be a bit nervous spending more than a grand or so on something used from e-bay. I trust the buy/sell forums on the major boards a bit more, especially if it's folks that have a long posting history.

    Bought new irons (Titleist AP2) this winter (1/2 the price the reatail shops around here were selling them for). I love stolen stuff sold for cheap on Ebay.
