*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.

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.

The DS. Unless you mean the games? I thought the games was for people outside the US since they're paying for shipping.

Isn't that 2 or 3 times now you dib a higher value steal and only offer a $10 card. No offense but that seems like gaming the system to get high value items cheap.

Oh makes sense. I didn't quite understand his post on the games I guess.

Either way great steal.

If that's the case, I can just back out of the DS deal. Good reason Jeff made the rule to not pend the trade

No you got dibs if you want you can always offer something different at the same time.

Anyone could have called dibs I have no problem with anything anyone offers as a steal as long as someone wants that steal too. I think he just posted that to get dibs first before someone else did I don't blame him. I think it's fair since there had been some time where others could have claimed it.

I'll spice it up a bit

$10 of anything via Amazon Digital Service (PSN, xbl, eShop, etc ) doesn't work with amazon gift cards - free

Don't back out because of what I said. But I do feel its gaming the system.

It may seem like a huge discount, because it's 70% off, but really, you are saving $5.

That DS Lite bundle is worth a whole lot more.

I don't want to call you out, but you can do much better than that. You got some real nice deals so far. In the spirit of the thread, please pay it forward smile

Dashey, nothing against you offering that PSN card, it's still a good deal. I don't know how I feel if it becomes the norm, take a deal then offer digital currency with a $5 discount...what do you guys think?

It only does come with Lego batman if you're in the US and getting free shipping.

If you were from another country where I would have needed shipping to be covered I was adding a choice of two extra games to be fairer to people out of the country.

Still though, DS Lite with free game and free shipping is AT least $25 value.

Okay, that's what I thought

@Lunar other people have offered it and it normally gets picked fast.

I'm not sure claiming a $40-45 item for negative $3-7 (out of pocket costs to sender) and then offering a $10 anything is super cool, frankly, but that just may be me being a dog.

Good condition DS Lites still fetch some fair bills. Of course someone's going to take free/practically free money if that's what you bring back to the table after calling dibs on a steal. Imo, not the point at all. I think he can do better.

Oh I know, I picked one of them too. But I mean, I could start doing that, taken a $25 bundle then offer a $5 discount on any digital currency, it's easy, no shipping.

Then what if everyone starts doing that?

Fair enough. In that case, let someone else have the DS lite.

I did respond to a post earlier to someone saying that there should be a penalty if a steal isn't stolen in a four hour period because some steals are stolen immediately.

Dashey is right people have been posting that as an option along side 30 dollar off or more items and almost every time someone gets the digital currency before anyone else has even seen the post.

I'm giving Dashey all the time he wants to post whatever steal he wants. I'm okay with whatever he chooses since he got dibs. I got something great from Dashey earlier as well for FREE and I felt bad because I actually asked for it. He didn't have to give me something extra for free. I don't have any problem with his claim.

If you guys disagree just don't choose his digital gift card and if he posts something awesome give him the same chance everyone else is getting.
