*PLEASE USE THE SCORING SYSTEM TO VOTE IF YOU THINK THE ITEMS OFFERED ARE A STEAL OR NOT... MESSAGE ME IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS, DO NOT POST THEM HERE*

*YOU HAVE 24 HOURS TO SELL YOUR ITEM... MAKE IT A GOOD ONE! STEALS ONLY... IF YOU ARE BUYING STEALS AND ONLY OFFERING SPORTS GAMES OR LESSER SOUGHT AFTER TITLES, YOU WILL BE WARNED ... THIS IS NOT AN OPPORTUNITY TO OFFLOAD YOUR JUNK...USE THE FREEBIE FORUM IF THIS IS YOUR INTENTION...Please only list one item at a time. Do not list multiple deals in the same post. Options are OK *

I had an idea... if it doesn't work, oh well.. but, it won't hurt to try. It'll also be a good opportunity to make some trades (you should be making 2 trades... one buying, one selling if everything goes smoothly).

My idea is the first person will post a deal (Me in this case)... Item + price (Condition is a must) within reason. It must be a deal. Not a $50 game for 47 + shipping... etc. Prices must be shipped. Please try to keep the items below $100 value We don't want people posting "deal on MacBook Pro for $800" that way the cycle will not be blocked. Unless you are offering an absolute steal for an item over $100, please do not do it.

Please review all of your resources (eBay, Craigslist, GameTZ, CAG... whatever... just make sure what you're offering is a steal)

If you have less trades, you still send first... basic site rules still apply no matter what. If you are comfortable sending same time (gold stars Gold Star to Quintuple Gold Star and up, that's fine.)

Once you agree to a deal (STEAL!), you must then offer a deal (STEAL!) of your own.

Example:

I post Phantasy Star 3 - Genesis (cart only, fair condition) for $10 paypal shipped

@billy wants my Phantasy Star 3 for Genesis for $10 shipped... he then posts "dibs on Phantasy Star 3"

the first person to post "dibs on X item" gets the item. Please clarify what you are getting dibs on to avoid confusion. If you are the first person to post, you must send that person an offer for the item immediately. The deal giver must verify that this person is the first one to post dibs and then can accept the offer.

Once the offer is accepted, @billy must post a deal of his own to offer... He offers Pokemon Gold for $15... and the cycle will continue. If he knows for sure he is the first one to get dibs, he can post his deal right after... so on and so forth. Someone else will then say "dibs on @billy 's Pokemon Gold"

We'll see how the topic goes.

Examples of Deals Made so Far...
1.) Jeff sold Phantasy Star 2 (cart only) for $13 shipped to @Tad
2.) DiamondDave gets Tad's DOOM for $10 + ship and offers a PS3 bundle for $60 shipped!

Sure, he can offer another deal but, in place of this one. If people offer multiple deals, then once one is dibbed people will say "well he didnt take that other offer, i want it.. can I get dibs on that second deal?" thus, sort of messing up the process.

Or lower the price. I'm ready to ship these Pokemon carts once you post a STEAL!

Here's a listing for a beat but working console only for $80 shipped on Ebay:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/A-NO-GAMEPAD-Nintendo-Wii-...

You would technically get more after you factor in the sellers Ebay & PayPal fees. I'm on board with those who say it really isn't a steal.

That's what I'm thinking. Ouch.

Actually, don't we have to include shipping in the price, and it has to be under $100 total?

If shipping throws it over 100 that's fine. As long as the item itself is under 100 significantly

As soon as someone dibs it turns into a regular trade :)

EDIT: I guess I didn't answer the question... Maybe it's best to offer a shipped price, but put it in your calculations ($80+ shipping..total 100 shipped), etc

if its a bundle, especially PS3 most of us know itll be $20+ to ship priority with DC.

Understood, if you're selling a bundle of course shipping will raise or lower the price depending where it's going and how heavy it is... no for sure way to calculate shipping :)

I said that so people don't say "$50 + shipping.... annd shipping will be $40." Things like that are what would deter people, but the PS3 bundle is great.

I know Lunar wouldn't do this, but in general, that's a good rule. It keeps people from trying to overcharge for shipping after the fact just to make it appear like it's a good deal.

Also, if shipping kills a deal, it ceases to be a "steal," IMHO.

Agreed. People like to make up their own shipping costs... so, it helps a lot in the "steal" process

I knew shipping would push my PS3 bundle to "not sure if steal or not" status so I just ate it. Rather give a steal and lose a few bucks (but still make a few bucks). Part of the fun is losing your ass on a sale. smile

Well, youre losing your ass but when you claim another you are still up in a sense.

Screw it!

I'm calling dibs on the ps3

It's literally the best steal we're going to see anyways so eating microwave noodles almost everyday for another month isn't going to kill me.

Hopefully Lunar accepts because I have a total steal I'm going to post.
