    Default what's the best bargain you have gotten on ebay??

    Most recently a mobile for the cot, fisher price and brand new, seen retail for $50... I paid $3.25 and it was local pick up so no postage!

    An awesome TV and also a pram. We saved tons on both of them.

    At the lower end of the scale I bought three water hyacinth ottomans for about $20. They were in mint condition and have served any number of purposes while we have had them - bedside tables, seats, ottomans, random decorations in a room. I've only got one in the house at the moment but now I have been reminded I need to dig the other two out for the deck.

    Oh. The other thing I have bought enormously cheaply on eBay is hardware - 40sqm of decking timber for only a few hundred dollars. I'm about to buy some synthetic turf, too (don't laugh).

    And I got all our taps and shower fittings for just under $200. Less than one set of very basic taps from Reece for our powder room!

    A totally awesome iPhone cover that was worth like $40, I got it for $4. I love it

    I don't often buy from eBay.

    Another thing I got, that I haven't used but I think it's good to have is a sim extender thing, for incase either DFs iPhone or my iPhone died and we needed to use a normal phone for a while. Paid 30c for 2 and free postage. Just put the micro sim into it and it makes it the size of a normal sim.

    I save on things like cheap costume jewellery that you'd get from Diva or stores like that. Something you'd pay $15 in Diva, I've gotten the EXACT same thing from China for $2 with free postage.

    I don't generally get bargains in Australia, always miss out because I'm a tight @ss lmao. But I do get a heck of a lot of cheap things like electrical cords, bento boxes, jewellery and other little nicknacks from overseas.

    We bought an awesome modular sofa for $80 in fairly good nick. Then we decided to sell it a few months later because it took up too much room, and we sold it for $100

    I also buy all iphone cases and screen covers from Ebay for WAY cheaper than in the shops.
