Hidden eBay treasures

eBay

If you’ve ever experienced the frustration of placing a final bid on a coveted eBay item, only to see someone else slip in just before the deadline with an extra euro or two, you might be interested in FatFingers.com.

It’s one of those niche websites – input the item you’re looking for into the search bar, and it will search eBay for items listed with spelling mistakes, which could allow you to stumble on that perfect gift at auction with few or no other bids to battle against.

For example, a search for ‘Manchester United’ turns up 250 listings with spelling errors such as ‘Mnachester United’, ‘Manchester Untied’ and ‘Manchetser United’.

Happy hunting!
