Just for fun, I often switch over to "Ending Soon" items ...

It is often amazing how low some items are (soon/immediately) selling for, and admit I also very often jump in and grab a "value", (unfortunately even if I don't need it).

I do the same thing. Sometimes you do find some "good deals" this way especially if the seller has made a mistake in the title and/or doesn't know what they have in terms of value. I found some good Minolta Maxxum lenses this way. The seller was listing a Minolta 7000 with lenses (not specified). The pictures showed two lenses I could use, the 50mm macro and a 24mm. Now I have yet another Minolta Maxxum 7000 for my collection, having often bought a Maxxum 7000 for the attached lens.

This approach has its downside particularly late at night when unable to sleep. I have several times ended up with some cheap junk from China that I didn't need just because it was a bargain.
