Question Is it just me or has there been a total lack of eBay Bucks offers recently?

Like for a month or more. By now I've racked up the Bucks since I'll wait for the promo to hit some BINs I've had watched (random older cases and wax generally), but nothing.

Anyone else notice this?

An 8-10% 2 day Ebay bucks promo just ended. If you look at historical trends throughout the past few years, Ebay tends to more aggressive with these promos both mid quarter and then also the end of each quarter.

They send them to me just after I blow a ton of money to entice me to keep going. Never before Iím contemplating purchases. By the time I get the offer, Iíve already spent what I need. If not, sometimes the threshold is more than what Iím willing to spend on one card at the time.

Hmm. I had a little lull recently but wouldn't that be the better time to woo someone with offers?

Yeah I think they usually have more promos towards the end of the quarter.

They're a publicly traded stock so if they look like they're going to be short of their expectations, I'm sure they'll be aggressive with the promos to get people to spend more.

Maybe it helps, maybe it doesn't, but I accept EVERY buying or selling offer eBay ever sends me whether I intend to use it or not. And I only think I've missed out on a couple of Bucks specials the last couple of years. I have gotten 2-3 offers for Bucks this month. But expect March to be better since it's the last month in a quarter.

Yeah, I do the same. AFAIK (judging from whenever promos are mentioned on the forums), there's none that I haven't gotten in a while. But it could just be a coincidence. There doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to who doesn't get the offers.

OP, you could always try unsubscribing from everything, waiting an hour or so (or a few min if you're impatient), and re-checking everything. That worked for me a while back.. but there's no guarantee. Could be worth a shot.

I didn't get the eBay bucks offers for years on my main account and still don't.

I created a 2nd eBay account and then began to get the eBay bucks offers on the new account including the two mentioned in this thread. I recommend everyone start a new account for this reason if you aren't getting them.

This time of year sales on Ebay are historically always slower So the bucks are a way to entice buyers.
