That's called "sniping"

What you can do is put the product on your "watch list" and wait until it's just about to end (within half an hour) and then enter your maximum bid.

Or do what I do. Open 2 tabs. On the first one, just check the time. On the second one, enter your bid, and click Submit. You'll be taken to a Confirm Your Bid screen. Around 1 minute, start refreshing the first page constantly to monitor the time. At 10 seconds, switch to the second tab and click Confirm.

Whatever you do, don't bid before the last minute. Otherwise, you're inflating the price, and inflating what other people will enter to get it. This means that, even if you get it, you'll pay more. Once you submit it, it's very hit or miss. Either someone will enter an amount more than you, or you'll get it. There are a few other tricks that can help you, but there are some secrets I won't reveal.

Just some advice from me... check around the forums, not only this one, and you will find some VERY low priced ions.

another good way is to try misspelling the name, not as many people will have seen the item

Woopsies, well, have you tried to google eBay tips? You might find some sites with "techniques". You might also want to try Yahoo! Answers, lots of good info there.

me and my dad and brother have used ebay many, many times and nothing has ever happened to our dislike. this is precisly the reason you should check the seller's feedback before buying.

p.s. this is obviously a staged photo but im still laughing my but off.
