    Anyone know if the this ode can still be applied if a Seller sends you an offer (offer for reduce price) sent today? I assume so. The concern is I need to “accept” the offer first, not knowing if the code can even be used.
    I’m just trying to avoid the headache if it doesn’t......telling the Seller I need to back out.

    Thanks in an advance if you can help.

    Yes, as long as you accept and check out before 11 pm pst. The code is accepted at check out, so as long as the seller doesn’t drag his feet in accepting the offer, you should be ok.

    Maybe  BOLD this part next time?
    Only eBay users registered with an address located in the United States, Canada, Latin America or the Caribbean are eligible for the Coupon.
    I mean, probably 50% of this forum\'s userbase, or more, is outside America.

    Im a wee bit confused about the flash sales. We can go months upon months upon months without a single one and then there are times
    where in the span of a couple of months there might be 2 or more . I dont get the frequency.

    Probably important to mention in the steps that you need to spend $25 in your order first.

    They've been pretty regular for the last handful of months averaging more than one a month...don't know why and don't know if this will be the new norm going forward, but I'll take it. Although maybe it would be better if they didn't happen so often...it's making me buy a lot of extra shit.

    why are people complaining about the news and the OP's "perceived" missing information. it's not his responsibility. He posted the notification, which is helping a lot of folks out. Just go to the dang site to read the exclusions. It's not that difficult. It's on the first page under the big "see details" button.

    Looking at the average cost of the items I've been hunting...anybody else noticing a pattern of prices sliding up ever so much lately as if responding to frequent eBay coupons?

    I mean, I get it. If you know eBay throws a random 15-20% off out there every few weeks you're going to want to protect yourself from people who're waiting for those by raising your prices in general. Maybe it never sells until the next eBay coupon...but you guarantee yourself you either get what you wanted anyway or someone panics and pushes "BUY" on the new price.

    That's the point. If there was any rhyme or reason to the pattern both sellers and buyers could plan around it. Sellers would hold back on items or adjust prices based on expected sales, and buyers would simply sit on stuff until a coupon.

    So you think sellers boost prices assuming high sales volume during coupons/flash sale? But then risking low sales when no coupon is available?

    I don't quite understand how raising prices "protects" sellers from buyers who wait for the next coupon I guess?

    They've got access to the numbers better than I do, but I would say there's a chance some of the more veteran dealers have been paying attention and could be upping prices to accommodate frequent sales.

    If you know people only buy during sales, adjust the prices to account for it and then you'll still potentially get the panic buyers plus those who were waiting for a sale will come back around and take the "usual" price when the discount comes.

    This is just a guess, but could the timing of the flash sales be tied to real or perceived slumps in eBay sales, or even to steal the thunder of a perceived competitor such as Prime Day next Monday (7/16)?
