All right - who has the most eBay bucks to spend on coins in October?? Can you beat $206??

Earned $206 this period - a lot for me but I suspect a paltry sum for many. Need to spend by 11-2-17.

Embarrassed to say much of it came from a embroidery sewing machine for the wife, tires, etc rather than coins.

Who has more?? :D

    Maybe I'll kick in a couple bucks and buy a book of stamps.

    Dang it! I just purchased a few old back issues of Minnesota History magazine and didn't check my eBucks. Could've got 'em without paying anything. :'(

    Oh, and only $11.47- that's a lot for me. Not as crazy as you. :)

    Never offered the bonuses but then again I hardly ever buy anything on eBay.

    $0.10 for me this quarter, that's right 10 cents. Spent a whole $10.00 on some pachysandra plant cuttings. If everything works out as normal in our garden they will all be dead by this time next year!

    You have to have your settings right, on ebay, to receive their promotions and such.
    You have to be a member in good standing, etc. (log into your ebay account, search on ebay bucks, and read their rules there).

    Then, you have to be selected (I think most people are, but there are folks here who swear they never get anything and they are set up correctly).

    Once you are set up correctly, and you are in the program, you can get ebay bucks when you BUY in most categories (not certain categories, such as bullion, some of the automotive areas, etc).

    You will receive special offers in ebay mailings. These can be for 2x, 4x, 8x, 10x your normal amount.
    These offers can ALSO be for when you sell, under the stated conditions they will list in their offering.

    So, you CAN get them for buying or selling, but are mostly only when you buy.

    I've been told I tolerate fools poorly...that may explain things if I have a problem with you. Current ebay items - Nothing at the moment

    Towards the end of Sept. there was 8% offered on both the buy and sell side, so I listed a bunch of stuff.

    See the Bochiman post above.

    I seem to get them more now after opening an ebay "store".
