Second chance offerings
Be aware how second chance offerings work on Ebay. I bid on a plant 10 days ago and watched someone else get it for much more than I was willing to pay. Immediately afterwards I got a 'Second Chance Offer' I could buy the plant for the highest amount I bid, much less than the winning bid.
The moment you see this test the waters. I have since then got 4 more plants from this vendor, each time bidding the asking bid, then loosing the plant to someone else who paid more and soon after buying it for my lower bid. Each time I got the plant for considerably less than the winning bid. Obviously this vendor has too many plants right now or needs money to pay his taxes.
I'm going to milk this until he stops doing it. If you want to know the vendor email me.
