    This thread should be deleted, flash sales are dead. RIP 2018.

    We can evaluate that down the road, if necessary.

    But until then, no more replies unless there's actually a sale code. People commenting over and over that this should be closed, or it isn't the place for eBay bucks just creates more notifications for others who then think an actual sale is happening. So, please, from this post forward, don't comment unless a new sale starts up. Thanks!

    Hope everyone is ok with posting this here (not Flash sale, but a 24 hour coupon):

    Courtesy of reddit:

    Ebay $3 Off $3+

    Text "EXTRA" to 70799

    Expires 11/1

    For me, after texting 'Extra' to the number, I have to reply again with my zip code to agree to receive autodialer messages going forward. No thanks, not worth $3

    So beware, it also appears to be an opt-in for text messaging. Or opt-in, get the coupon and opt-out again.

    FYI - you can text “STOP” right after to avoid this.

    Yes, you can do that. It does not mitigate the fact your number has been provided and now poses risk. Working in a certain industry, I probably place more importance on digital privacy an minimizing data exposure than most, but there are consequences and potential risk here that in my opinion is hardly worth the paltry sum of a $3 discount. Providing personal data in exchange for crumbs is a big L for the consumer. To anyone reading this wh would like more information on why this is not ideal, I would be happy to discuss via private message so I don't hijack or derail the eBay flash sale thread.

    Flash sales are not dead there was one the other day in the UK for £5.00 off £10.00 £10.00 off £100 & £25.00 off £250.00
    But since some people get bent out of shape and as it was site wide I didn't mention it.

    But I think yes unless it's about an actual flash sale it might be best to use the discussion thread for other related offers.

    I'm not sure if there's anything I want that's worth saving $3 on...

    Thank you for that!

    I think for all intents and purposes, flash sales are dead so having alerts set up on this thread still is pretty much pointless. Yes, there are still eBay sales, but none of them seem to have the value flash sales had. But whatevs. For those still holding out hope one day another flash sale happens and want to get that hypothetical alert, the 'discussion' thread is just as easy to post to.

    Thanks much for posting this! It's as good as a flash sale on a cheaper pickup, like an MFT figure.

    It's tied to PayPal credit so I don't see any exclusions.
