Paying more than it's worth! Nokia 6300

My husband just bought one brand new & unlocked from Carphone Warehouse yesterday for £59.96.

I'm watching some ebay auctions heading towards the £90 mark and then adding P&P takes it even higher.

Unbelievable!

Its remarkable how many people assume that everything on Ebay has to be a bargain. I've watched as people have bid well over the price of an identical item coming up a short while later with a 'Buy in Now' price. and most ignore the P&P price.

Yeah it always pays to check the prices on other websites before buying off ebay!

It's only been out since early 2007, but it's deemed to be old already.
Bought my 6300 for £79 back in September.
And Christmas is the time to buy a phone when the deals are so good!

Just kidding.

The trouble is two-fold. Some people get carried away I suppose it must be the competitive spirit in us, you know what I mean " I must win it" syndrome. And the other thing is some people bid on something they like without any real knowledge of what the proper retail price is.
I used to see sunglasses for sale by JR (not important who they are or anything) but people used to pay £25-30 for them. I nearly bought a pair myself until I found out the proper retail price at that time was £16.99.
Clearly the people bidding didn't check that out.
