    Today is end of quarter and end of first half of year for business so it could be a sign eBay was trying to hit its quarterly numbers with added sales.

    i myself dont like using ebay much, at least for other products. Amazon is much better, with customer feedbacks, easier returns, help line, etc...

    I do use Ebay for TF, because i can get the Iron Factory / Master Made products cheaper usually than retail (though sometimes my local retailer has them cheaper but i only see him at conventions). Also, if products are cheaper shipped on Ebay, especially with Flash Sale, well, i use Ebay. But really, nothing else, amazon is much better.

    So without Flash Sales, my purchases from Ebay would seriously be less.

    ebay picks it up I would guess, but it can still help them hit their total sales revenue numbers

    Thanks for sharing. Seems to be only valid for the states, so Canadian fans like me probably wont be able to use this one :( 


    Edit: Wait a minute, it says for select items from select sellers!!1 This wont be any good for toys.

    "1. Shop for eligible items from specific sellers as listed above.
    2. Pay for your item with PayPal by 11:59 PM PT on JULY 4, 2017.
    3. Enter the Coupon code in the redemption code field: P20JULY4TH"

    Baba is the official communist state sponsored eBay seller. Whenever China Post seems "Bababobo" they handle it super quick!!!

    Yep. Every now and then his stuff is faster than usual. My last order from him made it to me in 9 or 10 days instead of his usual 14 days.

    For me the package getting to ISC New York is only half the battle. I have to give it another 4 to 6 days after that.
    For me Ebay is totally worth it. Aside from lower pricing, and flash sales, I accumulate Ebay bucks that can be redeemed at the end of the quarter for even more $$ off. I use Amazon as a last resort because they are higher priced.

    Mine still not active. I am not concerned about baba, but I can't set up email/text notification until it is active.

    Let's keep this thread to flash sales updates and not Q&A so not to mislead people into thinking there is a sale.
