*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... PLEASE DO NOT PEND YOUR TRADE UNTIL THE PERSON CLAIMING YOUR DEAL HAS POSTED ONE UP OF THEIR OWN AND IT TOO HAS BEEN CLAIMED!*


*YOU HAVE 12 HOURS FOR SOMEONE TO DIB YOUR STEAL

Otherwise, the original steal you previously had dibs on will be available again and you lose your opportunity to re-claim. If you offer TWO unclaimed steals, you will be unable to participate in the future.


Please do not request particular steals (general requests are OK..."Anyone with Genesis Games? FunkoPops? SNES games?" is cool!! ...asking for "can someone post PS2 memory cards or Sonic the Hedgehog 3 complete for a steal?" is not... this takes away from the random fun the thread is centered around. )



This is the order you should be posting your steals, sending and accepting offers.
Person A posts steal
Person B dibs and sends pre-accepted offer
Person B posts steal
Person C dibs
Person A accepts Person B's offer

Thanks whitefire!


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. What makes this fun is the randomness of items that can pop up... they can be anything.

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...


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... Options are OK as well (i.e Game X on PS1 or Game X on PS2
*





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!
3.) Yooka dibs the PS3 Bundle and offers - LittleBigPlanet 3 (PS4) New and Sealed and Perfect Dark (N64 complete) with the option of Freedom Wings (DS) Complete and Whiplash (PS2) Complete...
4.) ResqTek dibs Yooka 's deal! and he offers Weeds Seasons 1-5 on Blu Ray. Seasons 3 and 5 are still sealed (BUYER PAYS SHIPPING!)
5.) KingofGames dibs Weeds Seasons 1-5 on Bluray Disc and offers Pokemon Silver and Sapphire for $10 shipped
6.) Geewiz dibs KingofGames Pokemon Silver and Sapphire and offers a Wii U system only 32GB (fair condition) for $50 shipped
7.) Whitefire dibs the Wii U system and offers Mario Kart 8 Wii U (Complete, VG) for $18 shipped.
8.) Lunar dibs MK8 and offers a PS3 bundle for $75+shipping!
9.) BleedingViolet claims the PS3 bundle and offers a sealed KOTOR 2... absolutely free!
10.) Pathlesscookies claims KOTOR2 + Lego SW: TFA and offers Max Steel, Railroad Tycoon 2 (sealed) a bunch of other various games for free!
11.) Whitefire claims Pathlesscookies' bundle and offers Wii U pro controller for $20!
12.) Dashey claims the Pro Controller and offers Lego Star Wars Force Awakens PlayStation 4 + oBher freebie games
13.) BleedingViolet claims Lego: SW - TFA and offers Lego: Lord of the Rings (DS/Sealed), Godfather (XB-Complete), Final Fantasy (PSP-Complete), Finding Nemo 2 Disc (complete), Boondock Saints (BDR - sealed), Buffy 1st season (complete), COD: Advanced Warfare (PS4), RE6 (360 / Sealed) for $20 amazon credit

The one flaw in this that you may not have noticed is when currency is involved or giving things away for free is happening this is usually when it's happening. Or a brand new item that just came out sealed.

Someone was getting negged yesterday for an excellent steal on boxed carts that are worth way more than posted. (Among other great steals) If you want to claim something make it obvious what you want in the first place. Then people will try to accommodate I guarantee it. Also some people posting are willing to throw things in if you ask.

People are trying to make other people happy but we can't read minds, if you can post something saying let's do this because I'm waiting for my steal then you can post something saying hey this is what I want to see offered as well, plus 24 negs on one offer where the guy basically ostracized himself is probably punishment enough as far as I'm concerned.

@cblake78 I'm almost tempted to send an offer trading some of my sealed games no one wanted for 2 of your awesome options lol. But if you post again hopefully either option 1 or 6 is still available.

Everyone of your steals was good especially considering the value discrepancy in what you were initially claiming. Which was also good don't get me wrong but you made me almost wanna jump back in as broke as I am lol.

Appreciate that brother! I received a PM (not mentioning any names) suggesting I offer up something else because they weren't "bonafide steals" and what I was offering "just wasn't that great". I think from all the positive feedback I received I did just fine. My theory is he suggested that because he didn't see anything he wanted from my steals. Which sucks, I hope this thread doesn't become that.

It was me, and it wasnt because you didnt post anything I was interested in... if your post is sitting for hours, when others are gone in minutes, doesn't that say maybe I should alter my offering? I'm not trying to deter you from participating, but you got some great stuff and offered a few DVDs... good DVDs nonetheless, but DVDs.

We all can agree on it not becoming a "take a good item, offer lesser valued item" in return. Im not here to claim all of the deals, i've offered up Pirates Gold, GTA5, Phantasy Star 2... i have more games to offer and im sure a lot of other people do as well. We need to keep the quality high at all times. I liked your Sony Headset and the Blurays, those were good choices.
