Ebay Daily Deals
Are They Worth It?

The eBay Daily Deals have been around some time now and I must admit to being a bit sceptical about them in the beginning. However, I am now a convert and most of my 'new item' purchases from eBay are made via Daily Deal promotions!

What Are Daily Deals?
Each day, eBay promotes two products via selected retailers. These products are brand new Buy It Now offerings and are heavily discounted from the RRP (recommended retail price). They are also offered with FREE UK postage. Therefore, for most of us, the price you see if the price you pay. It's nice to have something with no hidden costs!

What Sort Of Items Feature In Daily Deals?
I'm sure that if I asked eBay, they would tell me that it could be anything. However, experience has shown me that the most commonly promoted items are fashion and technology products. Fashion tends to consist of branded clothing and footwear, for both men and women, and 'technology' seems to be a mixture of computer-related products (USB flash drives, etc), right through to flat screen TV's. Occasionally, other types of items are thrown into the mix, especially if they are 'topical' right now. For example, there was an Olympic mascot on offer during the Olympics, and the appearance of the sun in the UK can sometimes result in garden products being offered as Daily Deals.

Is Every Daily Deal A Bargain?
Although every product offered is well below RRP, not everything is cheaper than you'd get it elsewhere. That said, MOST of it is! Like any internet purchase, a very quick bit of research will tell you if you're getting a good deal. Do what I do; copy and paste the title of the product into eBay's search box and sort by Price+P&P, Lowest First. Then, paste the same into Google. You'll soon know if you're getting a good price! Remember, though, that Daily Deals are FREE UK postage, so bear that in mind if you're comparing prices. That '10 cheaper' deal you found on Google may not seem so good when they whack on a 20 delivery charge!

How Do I Know What Items Are On Offer?
If you use eBay daily, it's easy they are highlighted on their homepage. However, the best way is to log into your eBay account and sign up for the emails from them. I get an email at 8am every day from eBay to say what is on offer. I actually look forward to receiving them!

If you want to know what's on offer today, simply CLICK HERE.

Anything Else?
YES if you think something is a bargain, GRAB IT! eBay Daily Deals do sell out quite often, so don't dither. That's one reason why I sign up for the email notifications, as I can get in there first!

In Summary
Although www.cheapbargains.co.uk is mainly about local eBay bargains, there are other bargains out there. With free postage, you'd be crazy not to keep an eye on eBay Daily Deals.

Happy bargain hunting!

Another great way of finding cheap eBay bargains is to look for items that haven't had many bids. Just because they haven't received bids, it doesn't mean they aren't any good! Quite often, the item will be poorly described, have a bad photo or just finish at an unsociable time. Use the drop down box below to find items in each category that finish soon and have had 3 bids or less:

Items With 3 Bids Or Less



And here's a favourite for many....the good old 99p auctions! A lot of people start their auctions at 99p or less, partly because they believe that they'll attract more attention if they do and partly because there are often promotional incentives to do so. The result is a LOT of items sell for a pound or less! Select a section below to see what I mean:

And here's one more trick to use. Type your search term into the box below. Select your postcode and distance you'll travel and get the results. If any of them take your fancy, check the descriptions and if it doesn't say that they'll accept collection in person, ASK THEM.
Not everybody does accept collection, but there is no harm in asking. I've bought plenty of stuff like this and you'll often find you can save a lot by cutting out the postage.

A few buying tips:

bullet Only fools rush in - don't grab the first bargain you see...however tempting!
bullet Don't avoid Ebay - if a seller asks you to buy direct, avoid them. You lose all your protection from Ebay.
bullet Pay with PayPal - again, you get extra protection this way.
bullet Read the small print - be SURE that you know what you're buying!
bullet Make sure you can pick the item up - bulky items often need a van and some muscle!
bullet Make sure you can store it - bulk deals sound great, but ever tried fitting a million widgets in your hallway?
bullet Have fun - buying a cheap bargain can be great fun. Enjoy it!
