I've been trying to spend my money, but haven't been successful with anything in the last two days.

Anyone seen any deals on gold/silver or coins around spot on eBay they want to share.
I have till midnight to use the offer.

    " deals on gold/silver or coins around spot on eBay"

    Your request is an Oxymoron. There is no such thing as deals on silver or gold bullion. Pay the going price or wait for a downturn in the market.

    After midnight but LIberty Coin offers secondary market bars about 4% over melt.

    I decided to wait.
    Bullion direct had a 10 gram Britannia Gold Bar .9999 that was $706 less the 8% would have been really close to melt.
    Almost bought some random 90% but I don't even look at what I have now.
    Was primarily looking for something gold and cool.

    Have not seen any 'deals' on gold for quite a while now.... and do not expect any in the foreseeable future. Gold is hot.... Cheers, RickO

    That's a heck of a power tool! How many amps does it pull? We need a video of it in action.

    12.5 Amp
    Too much for a solar panel set up with battery and an inverter.
    I run it with a 2200 generator.
    I wanted to get on like one of the other guys Milwaukee brand (a lot lighter)
    His wife bought it, he used it four times and it burned up.
    He bought a harbor freight one and it's still working great.
    I wanted one like his But this one was on eBay for $45 bid.
    I bid and no one else did...free shipping and all.
    It's a little big and takes up more space in the jeep but it gets the job done after it warms up for a minute.
    Not sure why it doesn't take right off but I think it has something to do with the internal lubrication.
    Someday I'll open it up and see.

    I tried for two days off and on, everything was still priced high after the 8%.
    No deals that I saw close to spot before the cut off time.
    A seller had 11 grams of gold nuggets from Alaska that sold for $570 but it was a few hours after midnight.
    This gem popped up around 12:15am for about 15 minutes before someone threw Money at it...I think they should have put their glasses on and will probably be disappointed?
    how many RED flags are thrown on this play?

    The biggest red flag is the price. :D

    and the very low seller feedback
