I am curious how much do you pay for a cart.?

I have been bidding on Lyrical Letters this is my third time it seems odd that there are actions ending every hour and the bidding stops like right above what I bid. Makes me wonder about how this works???

If you have a Micheal's nearby, they have a bunch of carts on clearance, including the Lyrical Letters. I just picked that up last weekend for under $30. (of course I haven't had energy to play with it yet)

With ebay, I've won several carts. I tend to only buy from the ones with free shipping and have usually spent between $20-$30 for them, sometimes a little more and sometimes a little less. There are usually lots up for sale and they're new & in the plastic package. If I have time to sit & watch, I'll bid up to the last moment. I usually don't have that time, so I just put in my maximum bid and then just check periodically. If I win, yay, if I lose I'll try again another time. Typically the bids go up in 50 cent intervals so if another person has a higher maximum bid then what you put in they'll win for just over what you bid. It is frustrating, and all I can say is be patient. I've won several thru them, and usually eventually get the ones I want.

Thanks Jaidynsmum for another perfect siggy!!

I was my cart on the third try for just under $20 with free shipping.

The lasy thing I won on EBay was a lot of used baby sleepers, bid $2.81 shipping $12.00!!! It ended up being about $2.50 a sleeper. I hate paying shipping...

HOWEVER Michael's is 30 miles away or 6 gallons of gas AKA $16.80. I wanted to go to town and DH set me straight on that... I was willing to spend the $200 on scrappy stuff to make it worth while, but he wasn't buying it.

The best thing to do is to watch the other bids and see what they have gone for. I think the most I paid for a cart was $26 and it was free shipping. Most of my carts I only pay about $21 or so.

I usually click on the completed listings over in the left hand column when I do a search for an item I want and see what the lowest the item went for and then set my max a couple dollars above that. Sometimes it takes me a while to get the item I want and sometimes (when I am a little more impatient) I up my max just a little so that I can get it a little sooner. It has been a while since I bid on any carts - but I did win the Lyrical Letters cart earlier this year. I think I got it for $21 with free shipping.
