My last "newbie" didn't pay right away and I'm like.. ok, my item is off the table while I wait. ( I just think that at one time, I had 0 feedback ) .. after a day, I had an invoice sent.. I shortly received a message that they ordered by mistake and how do they cancel. I'm good with that.. at least it wasn't long before they told me.. I then thanked them for telling me and told them it was canceled. This way I hoped it would impress upon them to contact a seller right away if they do something like that again instead of waiting it out.

That must have been a start to realize what you won! I have refused a few trips which weren't what I wanted and not what we could use.. I have taken a car and used it to trade in for what we wanted. You may not get what you are taxed on, but it still helps a lot. Of course, I did try to upgrade the car as the rules stated information on doing that but found out I really couldn't and I didn't argue the fact that the rules stated the option was there. All I wanted was to go from the 2 wheel drive it was to AWD and pay the difference.

If you sell it, trade it, give it away.. you are using your prize in the way it helps you out.

I've only entered one or two sweepstakes that gives you the option of choosing if you want to enter for the grand prize as well as play the instants. Normally you have no control over it.

I may need to do that. I did go in and change settings when I signed up. I guess I will go check them again. That sale seems fine, they didn't give me feedback but it has been 2 weeks so I hope it is done.

I seem to attract interesting buyers on eBay. So far it has been ok but some of them...

I seem to get a lot who don't give feedback and figure on a 2 week deal that the cash is now usable.

But once I got 7 feedbacks within 4 days and one of the days 3 came in!
