Why is it that sometimes when I'm bidding on something on eBay, somebody will come in and try to outbid me at strange increments? Let's say I have a max bid of $15 on something and it's currently at $6.00. Why would someone come along and bid $7.19? Are they trying to feel out my max bid somehow? This has happened quite a bit lately, people just bidding odd amounts, like bids ending with .19 and .99. The person that was bidding in .99 increments in a different auction actually got all the way up to my max bid (minus .01) without going over, like they KNEW what it was by feeling it out. Is it some kind of strategy? It pisses me off if they can figure out my max bid without actually going over it, it just doesn't seem fair.
