*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

Everyone does it. Not even kidding, even online retailers will ship DVD media via Media. First Class is considered an upgrade. And they won't even hide what they're shipping, I get DVD/Bluray sets through Media all the time shipped in like, those plastic bags (literally bags, no padding).

Yes. I still buy blus and dvds because I'm a dork and all of my larger orders have been sent media mail from various sellers on Ebay.

Yep pretty much. USPS doesn't care either, they'd rather have the business.

I just realized out of the initial 13 steals there were 11 different traders posting steals. That's pretty good diversity I think. And out of the first 13 steals there were 3 systems claimed as steals. And then yesterday there was a ton of fast moving steals.

@Jeff how many steals have happened altogether and how many different traders have participated so far? Also was yesterday the most steals in one day so far?

I also have as another option:

The Wire -- Seasons 1-5 DVD $15 + shipping via media mail

Seasons 1,2,4,& 5 are the normal versions that you can purchase separately. Season 3 is the soft-box version that was included in the actual complete series boxed set. I'm pretty sure, anyways. One season is from the boxed set, regardless.

When I used to ship something suspected not media mail via media mail, I wrapped the item well, then stacked random thin paperbacks upright around the item. Now I have people willing to pay priority so it's not an issue.

Lol same here. I don't buy DVDs anymore and the Die hard set is one of the few blurays I do still own. If someone doesn't have it that's a fantastic price.
