Just spent
50% of this months' wages on a PC. Not all that expensive, but I stumbled across it browsing on eBay, and it only had 4 minutes left. Not really an impulse buy as I've been shopping around for a while, this was just a pressure buy! 4 minutes to make sure it's a bargain, price it up on Scan, and put the (first and only...) bid in. I don't think I've ruined my life, yet.

I'd never be rushed into an ebay buy
Too many scams on it.

Search for "wholesale list" for one popular way for people are conned into impulse bidding. They think they're buying an iphone or something and they're just bidding on a completely useless email.

Hope you're okay with your bid. Now you've won don't pay by western union, bank transfer or fall for any sob stories about odd shipping arrangements, or odd cheques or other typical scams. If something looks too good to be true it usually is.

It's certainly
not too good to be true, looks positively overpriced compared to some of the cheap systems knocked together on there.

I may have also won - on an impulse - someone's DVD collection. Does anyone live in Bromsgrove and fancy picking up 101 DVDs for me? I'll pay you up to £7 to deliver it to Bristol. :)
