Yea..you might get the item cheap but if you don't win you lose money. And either way it goes they make a profit. Seriously, like I seen a wii going for $50...might see like they are losing money BUTTTT: It cost $0.75 to make a bid that increases the price by $0.15 so that $50.00 is really 333 $0.15 bids...coming to them making --- $249.75 plus the $50 it sold for, and shipping...so they make profit on these things

not a bad thing to try..but at $0.75 a bid it seems to risky when you won't 100% win the item
