Find an eBey bargain... ;o)

Advantages: The site is easy to use and the results are displayed quickly.
Disadvantages: It might take time to find a good bargain.
I was recently introduced to www.fatfingers.com after it was recommended on a money saving website forum.
The idea of fatfingers.com is that it searches for listings that have been misspelt on eBay. For example, some sloppy seller might have spelt "I-pod" as "I-Pud," and fatfingers.com will flag this up to anybody that inputs "I-pod" into the search bar on the home page of its website.
By using fat fingers you can potentially pick up real bargains (because the listing will probably be missed by other eBay users who are using the correct spelling to search).
I also like the fact that the fatfingers.com user has to input what they are looking for, instead of being able to click on a list of items provided by the website. This makes the system fairer and means that only those with patience will be able to bag the bargains.
You can search different eBay sites around the world and the results come up very quickly. However, if your computer doesn't allow pop ups then you will need to click directly on the link that is displayed on the page once the search has taken place.
I think the concept of this website is both genius! If somebody is stupid enough not to double check the spelling of their eBay item then why shouldn't others benefit?
I would definitely recommend checking fatfingers.com if you are looking for a particular item on eBay... you never know, you might bag yourself a bargain! ...It might also be worth double checking your eBay listings are all spelt correctly...
Summary: Check it out!
