Saving Money with Ebay

I am sure everyone out there knows someone who enjoys video games, whether that be your child or housemate, there are gamers everywhere. Unfortunately those new games can be pretty costly, usually nearly $100. My tip for today will allow you to easily save 30-40% of that, just by being slightly patient. This hint not only applies to gamers, but people who buy new release dvds, books, etc. You can all benefit and save plenty of money!

When a game is first released, the price is significantly marked up. However, if you are willing to wait for 2-3 weeks, you can easily get the game $20-$30 cheaper. For a student or a family on a low income, this could be 2-3 hours extra that you don't have to work to afford it.

If you want the product even cheaper, check out ebay (or other online stores). I have saved 50% of a game's value just by waiting 2 weeks, and then buying on ebay rather than in a store at the local shops. If you are worried about a person's authenticity on ebay, stick to ebay stores. These are very easy to find, simply by searching the product you want, and browsing until you find one. If you get into the habit of browsing ebay for the product you want, you may find a bargain! Of course, the same old story applies, don't fall into the traps that could potentially be there. If a deal seems too good to be true, then it probably is.

Happy Hunting!
