  • yes i have and loved it..the catch is you need to know what a hot selling item is..and be able to set your prices to get that very item sold

  • You can, but you have to be really careful. I just got burned really badly on a deal

  • ughhhh!
    it seems like you used to get bargains, now it seems like you just get ripped buying something for $10 that cost $2.
    but i guess, if someone is willing to buy clearance items, and another is willing to pay top dollar for it, then you can make money.

  • I bought a video that was out of print and the person new it. So he glued the box together around another VHS box cover. I felt ripped off, but at the time; I did not know I could do anything about it.
    But I have also gotten a couple of CDs off of ebay, which was a while back. And they were in good condition. Later I found the same CDs brand new for less at Target!
