eBay Price Trends

I'm not sure how new this is, but Ebay now has a "price trends" feature that allows you to track the prices of standard items over time for both completed "buy it now" purchases and "auction" sales.  The chart above (click to enlarge) shows the downward price trend for the "Apple iPhone 4S (Latest Model) - 16GB - White (AT&T) Smartphone" from $710 in early October to $558 for the most recent purchases.

MP: The eBay link above should work, but might take awhile to load.

I think that I'm just being thick, but I cannot find the price trends feature on the page. Can you tell me where it is? Thanks.

As far as saving when buying on eBay goes:

Use a site like to set up saved searches. You get an e-mail whenever a matching item is newly listed. Especially good for "Buy It Now"s that are priced right.

Try a misspelling search using a site like to hopefully find some great deals with items that have main key words misspelled in the title. Other interested buyers might not ever see them.

If you see an auction that you want to bid on, use a sniping service such as to place your bid for you. It'll bid in the last few seconds, helping you to save money and avoid shill bidding.
