Default eBay 10% .... when is it coming?

Hoping for an eBay bucks offering soon! My guess is that there are still some unspent certificates and after May 2nd there will a bonus offer.

Any thoughts on when it is coming?

Yes...without fail, it will come immediately following the next big purchase I make... right after I pay.

They generally don't give these in the first month of the quarter allowing you to use Ebay bucks to pay for a 10% off item. It defeats the purpose of the program.

Q1 saw bonus offers pretty much right of the gate, with about one every other week. At one point it was almost a given that on Tues or Wed an offer was coming.

After the eBay bucks have all been spent or expired, expect deals then.

I just dropped about $800 on ebay. I held off payment for a day or two hoping for a coupon. No dice. Bit the bullet and paid full price for everything.

Yup.…this happens to me every time. I'll let everyone know timing of my next big eBay purchase so everyone can know when the next offer will come

I've spent thousands of dollars and never gotten a discount offer. Though I just realized I have an email preference turned off in my account:

"General email promotions
Send me emails about what's new and hot on eBay, great deals, special events, discount coupons and other special offers."

Do you need that enabled in order to get the offer?

You also need to be enrolled in the ebay bucks program. A buddy of mine missed out on years worth of bucks because he never signed up - just figured he wasn't chosen.

Your account may have a bug. I didn't get any bonus offers for 8 years (enrolled in '09). Had to call over 3 different times to finally get some action. My info was "passed on to a tech assistant" who is hopefully looking into it. That was 3 weeks ago, but don't think there have been many offers since then.

Why should Ebay give out promo's when people are spending the free bucks they already got? It's like double promo makes no sense for Ebay to give them out right now.

My wife's accounts get offers all the time - she's got like 15 feedback. I have nearly 1500 and spend a good amount and haven't seen one in months.

why send them out to people who are spending all the time? Makes more sense to send to people who are not buying all the time to get them to go and make a purchase.

If you're spending all the time they get that money already, plus they would get an extra amount more because of the deal and knowing you're already a frequent spender to be pushed for more. Keep the shopper shopping.

Same boat here. Just looked, and I have it checked. But I haven't gotten a promotion yet this year after getting and using them all last year.

Very frustrating.
