Re: Never impulse buy
I do a lot of research before I buy most anything, including electronics, musical equipment, appliances, cars, etc. I don't like being pressured into buying before I'm ready, and I hate the feeling afterward of being burned. On a rare occasion I'll impulse buy if I get the feeling it is a good deal.
eBay can be great but it can also be a total ripoff as others have shown examples of. If I lose out on a bid, then it just wasn't meant to be. Same goes for an item that sells while you think about it.
