    eBay is taking the hit on these sales, not the sellers... Sure, the sellers could try and take advantage of the sales and squeeze a little more profit out of them, but if they're smart, they'd just be happy with the additional volume of sales than trying to double dip.
    To be fair, most people are buying both and getting free shipping. But with the 15% off you save about $22.

    Yeah man,I’m in the US.
    Thanks a lot for taking the time to figure this out.
    I bought both Maketoys seekers and both Badcube’s Lambo bros from Baba for around $350.

    The amazing thing is this sale lasts till 2AM Eastern tomorrow morning. I can't recall an Ebay flash sale lasting this long before.

    True, however those getting both thru Baba on Ebay will actually get $10 off in addition to the 15% off flash sale discount.

    No worries. They'll be fine. Believe me they've thought this through. THey won't do anything that goes against their best interest. It's a shame Amazon doesn't have such flash sales.

    I love that these eBay codes are announced on TFW2005. Of course I didn't buy a Transformer with it, but a uConnect kit for my wife's van instead :lolol

    I haven't bought a TF with ebay flash codes in forever. Generally, I get better deals either trading/selling with members, or slapping points on stuff through my usual parade of e-tailers. I use e-bay for one-offs or random items. I just picked up the RG Gundam RX 78-2, RG Zeta and HG Gundam ZZ, for example.

    Generation Toy Sarge will be mine now! Just purchased through hbwh1. First time buying through them but they are on the "good" list, so here's hoping!

    I feel like this sale is a trap to trick me into spending money before TFCON...patience, wallet, patience.

    I pulled the trigger on MMC Terraegis and Bad Cube Huff from Geo5Fish777 for a total of $129.01 after the 15% off flash sale coupon and last quarter's eBucks certificate.

    That just leaves me with needing Hound, Jazz, Mirage and Sunstreaker to complete my Autobots.

    I guess it's a good thing they have limits on these discounts or I might never stop loading the cart.

    I went with the Tanaka oversized MPF-11 Starscream for 70$ shipped. Not the deal of the century, but i won't be hit by customs fees/taxes (same country), so that's a nice deal for me lol.

    AND i'll get it in 4 days :D

    Can you be more specific? I was going off the feedback history.
    Looking through his sale history, I feel okay rolling the dice on this one.
