Called up ebay and they said if I didn't get an email then we weren't chosen as part of this targeted promo. Very strange considering the banner.
Thanks. I just now looked under the conditions of the promo and it did state that only those who got the email is eligible.
The way they show the banner makes this very misleading. I wonder how many people will sell their electronics based off of this banner -- which is shown to everyone. And then they later find out they weren't eligible. It seems like a recipe for a lot of angry resellers.
You are an Eligible Participant if you are an invited registered member of eBay.com and meet all of the following requirements: (i) you are a United States resident who is 18 years of age or older and currently reside in the United States or District of Columbia; and (ii) you are the intended recipient of the email Offer from eBay.com or you clicked on a banner from eBay.com which linked you to the Offer during the Offer Period as described in section 4.
"Limit one (1) Coupon per eBay User ID during the Offer Period. Only invited, registered eBay sellers who receive the email Offer from eBay are eligible. Sorry, no forwarding—the Offer is not transferable."
talk about double talk. In the words of a famous admiral, "It's a Trap!"
I wonder how infrequently. Seems like it would be pretty easy to just "sell" something at $200 with a BIN and have your buddy buy it and not pay. After listing and final value fees, you probably have $40 clear.
as I am sure others have pointed out, your math is off BIG TIME...
Ebay : By invitation sell electronic items and get coupon $100/$20 or $200/$50
I saw this special offer when I go to ebay's home page. Looks to be by invitation only. This is one of the offers on the center of the page. I didn't get a message in my messages so would have missed it if I didn't see it by chance.
