Because a bid entices people interested in the item into bidding against you. Sniping allows you to pick your price, once, and spring into action when others don't have time to raise you, and in fact have no idea you are interested at all. If somebody bids higher than the number you've got waiting to be bid by snipe, most sniping programs will notify you of this and you can then decide whether you want to go higher than the price you picked for the snipe. But in the meantime, you don't get into bidding battles with other buyers that basically just serve to raise the price ultimately paid.
