    The offers are quite often between the UK and USA TCB sites it's every few weeks.
    for example : (uk and usa both)

    $5.00 off $15.00 - 18th August
    $5.00 off $15.00 - 7th July
    £3.00 off £5.00 - 5th July
    $5.00 off $15.00 - 6th June
    £2.50 off £10.00 - 27th May
    £2.50 off £10.00 - 7th May
    $5.00 off $15.00 - 27th April
    £3.00 off £5.00 - 22nd April
    £5.00 off £10.00 - 24th March

    In general though if there is a holiday or special date of the end of a season that is when they have them in general.

    anyone make any purchases recently? like in a day or 2? I'm currently having some weird issues where I can't actually fully purchase what I want..."payment pending"....then items might go back into cart...and I try again..."payment pending"...man sometimes they just don't want to take your money

    Me neither. These never work for me, and I never get sent anything about eBay bucks.

    Are you signed up to receive eBay bucks on all your purchases? You have to sign up for some reason.

    I only receive eBay bucks crap. Well, that and 60% off clothing that I've never purchased before online like Adidas and Calvin Klein. Then, there's the occasional 30% off Craftsman Lawnmowers.

    Whenever the coupon happens to be toys, the code never works, so I stopped checking.

    If they offered a 20 -25% Ebay bucks offer, I think more people would buy from Ebay. I am curious how ebay sales volume has changed if any from last year (flash sale heavy) to 2019 (only one 15% off sale).

    Stock price doesn't tell the whole story, but it does tell A story.

    I've earned a little more than $7 in eBay Bucks this month, but I won't be allowed to spend them until October, which is when my state will start assessing sales tax on eBay transactions, thereby eliminating one of the reasons I use eBay. This is one of the things that I resented about eBay bucks from the start: I only get a certain window in which to use them, which may or may not - probably not - line up with when I want to make purchases. I would guess that flash sales drove more business, but that they made someone unhappy - probably eBay - and that they prefer eBay bucks because they cost the company very little, especially in light of the fact that many people will likely just sit on them or otherwise let them go unused.

    Absent of significant price savings, my last ebay purchase will likely be to spend my eBay bucks from this quarter. After that I’ll look to Show Z or Baba’s site when the prices are similar.

    It will be interesting to see if the main eBay sellers adjust their prices if sales decrease to offset the tax issue once it impacts all states.

    Not sure if it's worth mentioning, but eBay is running another eBay bucks promotion. 8%...and targeted so YMMV.
