    My 12 year old wants a Las Vegas Style poker chip set
    He knows all the LINGO Also..."they gotta be Clay-chips 11.5 grams and the whole 9 yards"...

    He sees one at the Local Target store for 45 bucks but doesnt have the cash to buy it..so over the weekend does his chores and then goes off to Target with the wife and its gone all sold out...Call all the target stores within 500 Zillion miles ALL-GONE.....

    I tell him and the wife.....E-BAY.....

    I find the Exact same one with 2 minutes left in the bidding...NO BID on it and the first bid must be .41 cents.....SO I bid on it and win it....

    A few minutes later I get the e-mail from E-Bay telling me I won and Pay the Seller $30.45 ......


    HE CHARGED ME 29 DOLLARS FOR SHIPPING...WTF

    SO I go to work as pissed off as a raped ape and tell my friends this,

    One guy tells me thats nuthin..he bought some memory for his computer for 5 bucks and was charge $70 for shipping ..... so my Friends at BP Beware of the shipping charges.....

    Gotta read the fine print bro....

    That is why I don't bid on shit that doesn't have the shipping pre-determined.

    CleveBucks Serenity now

    You always gotta look at the shipping charge. If it isn't explicitly stated, get it in writing from the seller before bidding. They do that to pay eBay a smaller commission while still making the same amount of money.
