Will searching for a commonly misspelled term help find an item?

Search Using Misspelled Terms

Be careful with your spelling when searching for auction items. Alternatively, watch for the opportunity a seller's bad spelling can bring to you. If you know of a common misspelling of the item in which you are interested, put that in as a search term. Other buyers may be missing this item because of the bad spelling and you may be able to buy the item for its minimum bid. I once got a great deal on a signed photo of Keven Kostner (Costner)!
