I have done all three, depending on the item and how bad I want it.

Though I tend to shop ebay for a lot of small items and use buy it now or put in best offers

I tend to be he last minute sniper with my max bid, prevents me from starting a bidding war and keeps my offer in check.

I used to bid along until I won the item that I wanted.
Most of the time now I bid my highest bid at the last minute.

I have also bid my highest and watched how it went.

I usually bid snipe. Most of the time, I've been successful. But there are always misses...

I’m a Last min bider I don’t buy a lot from eBay. Most of the stuff I want people overpay for. I’m the type that needs to get a deal or I won’t buy it. Unless it’s something I really really want. Even then there is very few things I will over pay for.

I only ever bid snipe and I'm the douchebag that will time it out on a different computer and get the high bid within the last <10 seconds.

I rarely us eBay unless it's my only option.
