How to improve your eBay shopping
Thursday 15th October, 2009Posted by on
Shhh… Don’t tell everyone, but I’ve just found a clever little app which has enabled me to get the much-wanted genuine Microsoft Office 2007 for only £36.42.
It’s called Fat Fingers and you can get it from fatfingers.co.uk or the iPhone app store.
What it does is it’ll search eBay for spelling mistakes or misplaced spaces, eg.
and using it I managed to find a copy of Office which was listed as “microsoftoffice” without a space separating the words, hence it had no bids.
Of course someone tried to snipe it off me in the last few seconds of the auction so I didn’t get my bargain at £25.00 but it still beats the £342 Microsoft would charge me.
