I got an 8% bucks offer last week. I didn't pop on it as I'm not currently in the market, but I happened to notice in my inbox. I almost get the impression their system sends the offers to those that haven't bought from ebay in a while.
Now they have 1% Ebucks on alot more items like auto parts, etc. But yeah, haven't seen any 8% deals for several weeks now. My guess is this is the new norm. They are trying to increase sales across the board on a continuing basis, rather than the bulk sales only during the special deals. Sucks!
Too bad for you guys that didn't get it. I found a sweet deal on some AU from a reputable seller but its limited quantity and too many nonmembers troll this thread for deals so I'll refrain from posting the link ....I haven't reached my fill yet.
If interested and I like you I might share it with you in a PM. (wink)
It is all about cycles. Platinum has spent much of its time trading at a higher price than gold. Buy a little platinum. Hold it until the gold to platinum ratio falls below 1, then trade it out for gold. Don't be in a rush for this to happen. Maybe it will be 10 months, maybe 10 years.
