Some gold items that end up being under melt AFTER eBay Bucks are factored in:
Austian 100 Corona
https://www.ebay.com/itm/123063077166
Hungarian 100 Korona
https://www.ebay.com/itm/122771701040
British Avg Circ Sovereign
https://www.ebay.com/itm/112609605904

Also saw some French and Swiss Francs, Mexican 10 and 20 Peso coins, etc. Nothing at extremely low premiums but still worth mentioning IMO.
Nice deals I just gota stay with silver though given the ratio

You can’t expect a perfect trifecta-drop in spot, lowest of low premium, and eBucks. It was good enough to get some, imo.
Yah, got some
Quarters from amped
X and a few of those ten ounce bars, no more till next bucks

You can't get there from here.
Sorry for the distraction, but I need some help. No I haven't fallen.

Last few times I got the bux email, I can activate on ebay, however, the bux don't show up in the purchase area.
I have tried clearing my cookies and history, signing in and out of fleabay, even using MicroSloth Edgeless. I use Firefox normally. I tried on two different computers, same issue.

What am I missing? [Beside being senile].

First make sure item is posted in eligible category. Bullion doesnt count. I use the ebay app on my phone to purchase and bucks show up when eligible after activation. Could also try chrome browser.

I will try Chrome although I don't want to.

I have only tried when I have the bux and have activated them on ebay. I have used them many times in the past.

This issue started a few weeks ago, haven't bothered to figure it out because there were no really good deals.

I have tested with non-PM stuff that is eligible, the bux do not show up on the listing.

It's been like that for weeks now. The bucks only show up for me at checkout just before your click the button to buy. It's a PITA. I'm pretty much fully vested in metals now so I'm not too concerned about it as the only buys I'll make at this point are the ones that are truly a great deal

Or just use the ebay app. If an item is ebux eligible, it always displays on the item's page before you add it to your cart.

The online page on my MacBook quit displaying ebux on the item's pages months ago and I don't know why. But I also don't care too much. I prefer the app. Especially on those days when the offer is higher on the app than online. i.e. 6-8% online vs 8-10% app.

App works fine for me on Android as well. Only problem is that you can't check bucks balance from the app.

I went thru a prolonged dry spell on getting ebucks offers, but I recently bought some small items and started getting the offers again. Are the two connected, I don't know.

Didn't get invited this time either. I'm guessing everyone or most users will get a quarter end invitation in a couple of weeks. We'll see.
