    How much has this site "saved" you in 2015?

    I don't think I actually save money. It's like when my ex used to tell me she saved $$$$ at Costco. I compared my pre-here what I would've spent on SSD and rackmount servers (7k) to what I did spend (4.5k) and that's a really nice fat of change to haul. And you peeps are fun too!

    ebay best offer policy

    I know you can't ask to buy something on ebay outside of ebay. But can I ask a seller with a BIN auction to enable BO and say "because I want to offer ____ amount"? I would only buy using best offer through ebay for buyer protection, but it seems like this is legit. I know we have many ebay...
