I need someone to outbid me on these.

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
I placed a bid on these and then later found out my only means of paying for them should I win is maxed out and I now have no way to pay for them.

They are the Klipsch Custom-3s new and my max bid is $150. I need someone to place a bid 1 dollar higher than mine, releasing me from the contract.

If you need a set of these, this is the ones to get at this low price.

Klipsch Custom 3 Headphones Earphones TS428VC/A Sealed - eBay (item 150282605308 end time Aug-19-08 18:53:34 PDT)

Thanks

Now THAT was harsh.

Lewislink, what are the ramifications of retracting the bid? Good Luck.

There is over a day left man. You will be outbid. But if you're still worried, you can ask the seller to cancel your bid. Explain the situation to him. Most sellers are very nice and easy to work with.

I don't have a proper excuse and I don't want to manufacture an excuse. If I have to I'll explain my situation to the seller and see what kind of nature he/she has.

However, I'd gladly trade nearly any of my DAPs and maybe a few canalphones for these if someone were to win them on my behalf. I have other stuff, too. I don't want to let go of most of my canalphones as I'm into them and want to keep most of them.

Maybe if you win, try to make a quick sale of some of your stuff?

um, maxing out your credit card or whatever is a valid excuse.

Not to be sarcastic, but I guess this is where 'sorry about your wallet' rings true? I have seen quite a few members spending more than they can spare and ending up in a bad corner. My advise is, don't let your hobby catches up with real life. It doesn't worth it, mate.

Good luck with the bidding.

Just ask the seller to retract your bid, or retract it yourself. You will not receive negative feedback. Just don't make it a habit of retracting on eBay.

Next time...don't max out your credit!

...now where did I put that visa statement...

If its such a good deal, it has 7 bids, you can pretty much guarantee someone will outbid you.

It's called The American Way--or helping your fellow head-fier. all he's asking is that if someone wants the Klipsch IEMs to please bid on his first rather than go elsewhere. Don't think we're "saving his ass", just being helpful. and yeah, he screwed up. Haven't you at some point???

Cut the guy some slack, huh??? He's just asking for help
And yes, you can cancel a bid IF you do it quickly and respectfully
