I got lucky on eBay

(Inspired by old4570's No way man !)

 

I love flashlights, knives, and carnivorous plants.  Much to my surprise, I won an eBay auction for each of these hobbies today.

Regularly $14.54 from Amazon & Walmart, I won this for $9.38 shipped.

Regularly $14.59 from DiscoveryBargain, I won this for $11.91 shipped (from the United States.)  I've been looking for a cheap non-DB source for months now.

This can be found on eBay here, brand new, for $28.38 (with Californian sales tax).  Somehow I won this for $16.32 shipped!  (Of course it's used and from the United Kingdom, but it's still a great deal.)



I usually get outbid on the bay, so winning three auctions in one day is special to me.  I <3 eBay!

Nice snag on that DMM. That's like 35% off and that's not factoring in tax (from wallyworld).

No chance of seeing such a price anymore since you mentioned them here. lol Don't everyone bid at once. haha

Maybe you should have got a lottery ticket ?  

Well done !

 Always remember , the easiest thing in the world to do , is to expel hot air from your lungs and through some vocal chords ..
The resulting sound may , or may not be worth listening too ….

Maybe so, but I'm not a gambling man...  My stance on lottery tickets is the same as Craig Ferguson's stance on gambling.  Below is an excerpt from a Men's Journal interview.  Disclaimer:  Ferguson is well known for using foul language, and it is directed towards the concept of gambling, not towards old4570 or anyone else on BLF.

 

          Interviewer:  What’s the biggest bet you ever made?

          Ferguson:  I’m Scottish, and we don’t do gambling. The whole idea of, Hey, I’ll give you money and you might give me some back? F--- you.
