Earn 8% in eB ay Bucks on every qualifying item through midnight February 3rd, PT. Works on multiple orders. Maximum $100 per order and $500 per earning period.

Not as nice as the  $15 off $75 offers, but better than nothing if you have to place an order before the next $15 off $75, it works more than once, and it's actually better for orders that exceed ~$190 because you save more than the one-time $15 off.

============================

Who's eligible?

Only invited, registered eBay Bucks participants who receive the promotional offer from eBay in My Messages are eligible. Sorry, no forwarding—the offer is not transferable.

Cool  - got it on both accts.  1 acct got an email and another had to log-in and go to the message to see it.

Darn it - gold price recovered a lot in last 4 weeks...

Bummer, this is the first time I haven't gotten one of these, and now I could actually use it...

  No, they're killing it, actually. They're probably just doing these deals to get people to buy stuff at a slightly lower profit margin and a gentle reminder about how much good stuff they have to offer.

I surprised myself when I didn't really care that they recently cut the Bucks from 2 to 1 per dollar spent. When I thought about it, that devaluation doesn't matter to me because began waiting for the next offer (6%, 8%, or 10% Bucks, or $15 off $75) before buying anything. I'm treating eB ay buying more and more like Ama zon: place items in your cart or watch list and wait for a price drop of best flash offer before checking out. When an offer I want to use pops up, I just go through a cash back portal and quickly pull together an order from my watch list based on the offer terms (minimum purchase price, item vs. order discount etc.). Just last night I was about to buy something to burn Bucks that expire on the 2nd/tomorrow but decided to wait to see if they'd have a new offer today and fortunately, when I checked my inbox this morning, they did.

They've been "passing out" nearly back to back deals like this for well over a year, so I don't think it's a sign if doom. I think they'd just rather offer the bulk if cash back money as Bucks so you have to spend it on their site instead of getting a Pa yPal account credit or check from a portal like Ebates that you can go spend on other sites/elsewhere.

I wish I was that smart I always buy something and then the coupon shows up and I end up empty handed :[

Good points.

Put the items on watch list then buy when eBay offers $15 off $70 like they did early Jan which didn't make sense 'cos it was 1st week of Q1 as eBay offers more of 6/8/10% Bucks offer towards end of the qtr.  

eBay changed the Bucks rule so one cannot buy their gift cards as well as other gift cards starting Jan 1.  I took advantage of 10% coupon (up to $100) on electronic offer couple of weeks ago to use up Q4 Bucks as I have been maxing out at $500 on 2 accts from buying gold coins.  Expect to see more Bucks and flash $15 off deals mid to late March.

wasn't it 75$?

soulzeng said:   wasn't it 75$?
  yep

What is unusual is that this 8% Bucks period coincides with a Bucks redemption month. Usually there are no bonuses when Bucks are eligible to be redeemed. I redeemed my Bucks a few days ago thinking this would not pop up, and slightly regret doing so (I only had $25 in Bucks anyway, so about $2 in loss).

Unusual 3-day window closes tonight at 11:59 PM PST!

Got 2 1-oz gold coins for $1,299 with 100 bucks each last night.

  Thanks for bumping this. Not sure why it was marked expired but I asked mods moved it back to HD.

Dammit, I used to get this offer every time, but its been about a year or so since I've received. Any ideas? Luck of the random?
