What is the promotion?
Invited sellers (“sellers”) who list in the Auction-style, Auction-style with the Buy It Now feature added, or Fixed Price formats via an approved eBay mobile application pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth herein will pay no Insertion Fee, and no Final Value Fee (collectively referred to as "Promotion") for one listing during the Promotion period as defined below. Please note: free Insertion Fee and free Final Value Fee will be applied to seller’s first listing only during the Promotion.

1, 3, 5, and 7-day listing durations are included as part of this Promotion. 10-day listings in the Fixed Price format are also included. 10-day Auction-style listings will not be charged an Insertion Fee, but will continue to be subject to the listing upgrade fee.

Who’s eligible?
The Promotion is available by invitation only. Sellers that qualify for participation will have received an email, and/or a message in My eBay. The Promotion is then activated with the seller’s qualifying eBay User ID. The Promotion is for invited sellers only and is not transferrable.
When is it?
For listings in the U.S., this Promotion starts on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, at 00:00:01 PT (12:00 AM plus one second), and will end on Thursday, February 14, 2013, at 23:59:59 PT (11:59 PM plus 59 seconds) (the “Promotion Period”). For listings in Canada, this Promotion will begin at 00:00:01 ET (12:00 AM plus one second) on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 and will end on Thursday, February 14, 2013, at 23:59:59 ET (11:59 PM plus 59 seconds), (the “Promotion Period”).
How do I get the Promotional Rate?
Sellers that have been invited to participate in the Promotion will automatically receive the Promotional rate when they create one listing during the Promotion Period in Auction-style, Auction-style with the Buy It Now feature added, or Fixed Price formats by using an eBay mobile application and the sellers’ qualifying eBay User ID.

Qualifying items must be listed with an eBay mobile application for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, or BlackBerry. Items listed on eBay.com from the browser of a mobile device do not qualify. Similarly, items listed by visiting eBay.com on a desktop computer browser do not qualify. Items must be listed with a native mobile application downloaded from the Apple, Android, Windows, or BlackBerry app stores to qualify. Click here to download the mobile application.

An important note about how Final Value Fees will be displayed: For sellers listing with an eBay mobile application, the zero Final Value Fee Promotional Rate will not be shown during the listing process. Instead, the discount will be reflected in the “View Account Status” section in My eBay, as well as in the seller’s next invoice.

Summary of Restrictions & Exclusions. Please take time to read the full terms for all the details.

Sellers can list one item as part of this Promotion with an eBay mobile application for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows Phone, or BlackBerry. Only single quantity listings are eligible for this Promotion. Listings in which the seller is selling a single quantity of an item are eligible, but listings in which multiple items are being sold through the same listing are not eligible.
This Promotion does not apply to the following: 30-day and Good ‘Til Cancelled listing durations, items listed in eBay Motors Passenger Vehicles, Motorcycles, Boats, Power Sports, Other Vehicles, Motors Local Market, Professional Services, Real Estate, Classified Ad listings.

Any applicable PayPal fees will still apply.
When listing an item in multiple categories, sellers will not pay the Insertion Fee for the first category but will be charged an Insertion Fee for each additional category selected. For example, if a seller lists one item in two (2) different categories, the seller will not incur an Insertion Fee for the first category, but will be charged for the second category.

If you are invited to participate in the Promotion, please sign in to My eBay and view your Seller Dashboard to verify whether your account is currently meeting the standards.

Find out more about seller performance standards.
All existing selling limits on sellers’ account (as well as category and item limits) still apply, and may exclude and prevent seller from creating the maximum number of listings in this Promotion.

2/14 Update: Appears to be a bait and switch trick by eBay. eBay made the message containing the offer "disappear" from our inboxes. Listings on Mobile now say there will be a final value fee if your item sells.
Above is incorrect. eBay promotional messages like this tend to always self-destruct after expiring. Listing on mobile always says there will be a Final Value Fee, as covered by T&C:

In case you didn't get this email just login to your account in the ebay app on smartphone and you'll see this offer there

Single item listing using auction-style, auction-style w/ buy it now, fixed price listing only.

Fixed price listings with 30-day duration or good til canceled are NOT ELIGIBLE

Remember, item must be listed using the ebay app for ios or android or Windows Phone

Brutal. I guess I'll take advantage of this promo and then crawl back to Craigslist with my tail between my legs.
