eBay just issued a promo (by invitation only) for 50% off final value fees on the first 5 items listed and sold during the promo period. This is particularly great for those who also received the 6% eBay bucks on sales promo. It's quite rare to have eBay bucks on sales and discounted final value fee promos happen at the same time (I've only ever experienced it once before).
Check if you're eligible via the link below (or check your email inbox for the invite):
