    As far as SAVING/BUYING on eBay goes:

    If you send a seller a question about an item, find another of their listings, and send the question from that item page, rather than from the one that you want. This'll add a bit of work for the seller if they want to add the q/a to the item description page that you actually want.

    If you see an auction item that you want, ask the seller if they'll accept $x to end the auction early and sell to you. If that doesn't work, use a sniping service such as Bidball.com to bid for you. It'll bid in the last few seconds, helping to save $ and avoid shill bidding.

    Use a site like Ebuyersedge.com to set up saved ebay searches. You'd get an e-mail whenever a match is listed. Excellent for "Buy It Now"s priced right.

    If the item that you're looking for is easy to misspell, try a misspelling search site like Typojoe.com to hopefully find some deals with items that have main keywords misspelled in the title. Other interested buyers may never see them.
