Well just a couple minutes ago I received a Second Chance offer for my bid. For some reason this seemed odd to me that already a Second Chance Offer was sent. So I did research.
I looked up the completed auctions of the same card...and from the same seller the same card sold yesterday for $23.49. I then looked at their auctions and then they have the same card for a Buy It Now for the same price. I got a second chance offer for 34 but they have the card for 23.49 BIN based on an auction that ended yesterday? Does this seem weird to anyone? And should I just buy the BIN auction and say no to the Second Chance offer? Or would you avoid this situation all together?
