Cricket Jr Testimonials 6
I couldn't wait for the Auction to end so I downloaded a copy from the net and have been using the program with great success. I've won some great things with the program that I otherwise wouldn't have had a chance I don't think of getting a bid in that would have won. Great program, would recommend it to anyone that wants to be first in the bidding Wars.
I had a successful snipe a day or two a go... <link deleted to protect identity> even let it dial up for me while I was sleeping... I had the bid on this all week but thought some one might come in at the end which did happen but C.J. busted his <deletive> sent him home thinking I'll bet (check the bid history) and only wish I could have said to him.."And even while I was sound asleep sucker"...man thats great...what a program...hats off to you Dave again.
OH yeah...one more thing....I sniped a totem the other night.. <link deleted to protect identity> and not two minutes after I won I got this message..."was I sniped?" from the high bidder I snatched it from... well.. take a look at who that was.... if I recall correctly...it was the same girl that lost that other totem that I had you snipe for me...
So...I'm not making any friends out there but I'm winning snipes by god..Cheers!
I am very impressed with your programming style (almost German quality -))) and like the details very much. Way to go !!!
I am a programer myself, so I know what I am saying when I say, NICE JOB on this program.
This thing rocks and with all the uncertaies you have to deal with regarding auctions, the darn thing actually works WELL. Congrats on this great accomplishment!!!!!!!!!
Thanx Sir Dave!
You have a very nice product here as it is and yiu should be quite proud!
I will await the deluxe version and also spread the word about your product!
The money I will save will be well worth the purchase price of this/future products!
Cricket Jr. is REALLY great. Never lets me down. New version is super. Very smooth.
I just wanted to write to let you know that Cricket Jr. worked great. I set a SNIPE in the morning and went off to work. During the day, we had an electrical power glitch and lost power for a few seconds, the PC re-booted and so did Cricket Jr.
Cricket Jr. restarted successfully and later won the SNIPE. Now that's great!
Just wanted to let you know that this program kicks butt! People have emailed me saying that they couldn't even bid against me in the last few minutes! It took us a while to get this thing registered, but I can see that it will be well worth the wait. Thanks, M.M.
Thanks for your quick response! The support you give is OUTSTANDING! Buying Cricket Jr. is one of the best purchases I've made! It's more than paid for itself! I can't wait for the multiple sniping option.
Keep up the good work!
Just for info, Dave.
Have sniped a few auctions, and CJ worked well. Tonight, I set a snipe for an auction that had gone for a couple of days at $13.50. 15 seconds before the auction closed, someone else's snipe hit. Raised the previous winner's bid to $15.00, apparently his reserve, then jumped up to $17.55 -- apparently the sniper's max. CJ then raised that by 50 cents, with only six seconds left in the auction.
This I think is exactly what CJ was supposed to do, and it performed flawlessly. Obviously, program is much smarter than me.
Cricket Jr. is one of the coolest programs I've used in a long time. And its fun to use ;-}
Dear Mr. Eccles, I just downloaded the trial yesterday (and then called you up to buy it). Six hours later, I'm doubtful, but set up and bidding. Yes, siree bob (or Dave). It worked like a charm. I swooped in at the last 10 seconds and won the bid. Saved myself a lot of money using your software. THANKS< THANKS< THANKS.....
Just to let you know, my 12 second snipes came in with 7 seconds left on the clock! I got two items while I was not home, that I most likely would not have gotten had I placed the bid before leaving.
Thanks again for all your help!

Dave. The way you follow up with individual customers is unbelievable. Everything seems to work fine. Thank you again!! I have no reservations about recommending you to anyone. As an attorney I can attest to the fact that your kind of people are rare indeed in this day and age. You are an inspiration! All of my best to you.
I LOVE THIS PROGRAM!!!!!!
I LOVE this program so much that I was becoming dependant on it to do all of my bidding. LOL that when the trial period went out I was pulling my hair out! Now I can win some auctions today! Thanks a bunch.
Busy is good? (I hope) Gotta tell you that I feel "naked" without having Cricket Jr ready to go to work for me! It has saved me MANY times its purchase price! AND the online support is terrific! Thanks!!!
Here is the blue resistration number xxx.
I have used Cricket Jr *lots* over the last 14 days or so, and hope you can help me.
I have simply waited, foolishly, until the last minute to register my copy, which is going to expire within minutes!... (
Earlier today I sent you my credit card name and number...
However, I have not heard back from you, and ask that you expedite the handling of my request to purchase Cricket Jr.
I am distressed at the thought of losing even one day with Cricket Jr, so again, I respectfully ask that you hurry my registration number, etc., to me!
Thank you very much for your wonderful product.
Please rush me my registration number!... )
DAVE I'm presently able to use cricket effectively... Last night it "stole" won me two items on e-bay, that i wouldnt have got without it. It actually smoked 3 other snipers bidding on the same items."almost like NAM ","3 shots then-move.
The program's effectiveness is deadly. That is why I am so persistant. I am sure the problems that I have are on my system, and not the software itself.
Feel free to use any of my (positive) comments in the "satisfied customers" column for CrJr, For it really puts the others to shame. Even after all the troubles that I have had >>>still the only "snipe" program [for] me. PAID FOR ITSELF X 100 TIMES.
I'm TRULY loven this software..
One Recommendation - Give the choice to minimize to Task bar only, or Toolbar, both, or none!?
By the way.. I LOVE the fact the Cricket "watch's my back" .. WHOA.. Could have been a SERIOUS problem when I set it to 3600 dollars )
Everything is running PERFECTLY.. haven't run into a single problem since our last commuique..
Thanks for the quick response. Keep up the good work, you developed a great program.
Thanks - J.
I just sniped two auctions tonight, and won! I got one just by one dollar, thats a little too close for me! I think your program is GREAT.
I hope in the future you might develope listing software too! (soon I hope!)
David: Thank you for your prompt and thorough analysis of what happened.
I have won several things on Ebay since I started using your program, and I know they were things I might not have won without the program, and I'm also sure that it saved me some money along the way and has already paid for itself. Thanks, thanks, thanks!
Registration went fine, tried the program, and won an item right at the wire!
As a programmer myself (microcontroller code for embedded systems), it's a fine program!
Dave, I am a programmer and relatively new to Ebay. I love your program and your no nonsense approach to it.
I uninstalled and reinstalled last night. All seems to be well. Thanks again for your help. Your attention to individuals is exceptional. Keep up the great work.
I promise not to bother you anymore about this but have to inform you I just tried your program for the second time, and WON another ancient Roman coin. Your program is GREAT. I can't imagine how much better your "Deluxe" version can be than what you already have, but will be interested in seeing it when finished. Keep up the good work.
Received the snipe program today! Just ran it for a test and it works great. Impressive setup and layout, thanks and I hope you dont sell too many more of these!
Well it happened. I lost out on an incredible offer due to a sniper. Now I have to fight fire with fire. I dont ever want to lose again.
I downloaded a version of cricket jr. Love the interface! Awesome stuff.
I'm so stupid. Basically you snipe using a proxy bid at the last minute....
You made this sale by your responsiveness and patience. I like buying based on those qualities! Which site is best for you when purchasing Cricket and will current users of Jr. get a break when PRO is available?
We love Cricket. What a rush! AND my wife is finally being successful with her bids on e-bay.
R. & I. P.
We just used it for the first time and it sucessfully worked, but didn't meet the reserve. Thank you for designing such easy-to-use software. I'm 13 years old and I did it!
I just got sniped on an auction today. I didn't know what sniping was at the time, but I knew something dirty was afoot when I saw that the winning bid went in at the exact same second that the auction ended!
So I did a web search on Ebay bid software, and found your brilliant software, Cricket Jr. I downloaded it and plan to purchase (register) it in a week, after I try it out on a couple auctions.
I set a snipe (it was a breeze!) and got the cool-looking Snipe Screen.
How do get the Snipe Screen back, now that I've hit the minimize button? [program goes into task tray]
Please send it as soon as possible as I done ran out of evaluation time and use it almost every day. Oh yeah, this thing rocks.
This is a really cool program and the only one I ever registered. Keep on jamming.
You did a GREAT job in answering all my questions ... REALLY! )
...the more I played with the program...once I figured out how to find the screens... the more I really love it! I told you before I had another snipe program..but it doesn't even compare to this! You really thought of pretty much everything here.
Thanks again Dave.... very awesome program you've got here! I applaud your efforts!
Happy programming.... )
Cricket Jr is really great!
I won the first auction I used it on, beating someone else who had sniped at 30 seconds, I sniped at 10.
Also used it to 'protect' one of the items I had bid on several days earlier, but wanted to cover it in case someone came in at the end of the auction. (This is the main reason I wanted the software, people kept sniping me after they figured out my max bid.)
Cool software, very elegant.
Below is in reply to a question I asked this Sniper. Both emails are included.
First bid $18 - Never say die bid $21.99 - Winning amount $21.71 Without
Never Say Die I would not have had time to make the second bid.

Yes, everything is great. I used it to snipe an item in the last 2 seconds! Also, though, I lost an item because I hadn't verified my bid and had typed something wrong, apparently, and, when I bid at the last moment, it didn't go through. Live and learn!
Note: With the new Cricket Jr 3.0 this mistake cannot be made! With Ebay's new Bid procedure, this will happen to Snipers over and over again when using
Ebay's bid form to Snipe.
