Default eBay Bucks new terms

Another nail in the coffin. I received notification yesterday that now to redeem your eBay Bucks certificate, you must have a $5.00 minimum threshold per quarter earned in your eBay Bucks account. Anything less is forfeited. Another backdoor way to increase purchases (get above the $5.00 threshold) to collect more sellers' fees. I'm sure somehow eBay was losing profit margin on this. Some quarters the threshold would affect me, some quarters it wouldn't. But still, I liked the idea of being able to buy that 1987 Topps George Brett for virtually nothing.

They have to find a way to make more money without actually improving their business model...thanks eBay!

When I first read about the change I just laughed and told my wife about it. I mean, what's next? It's like they are trying their hardest to push people away from their site...just disappointing because I've always liked eBay and IMO they have went backwards the past few years or so.

Could be worse. Ebay cancelled the ebay bucks program for Canadians last year.

That's what I've been saying about the "credit hours" for my pension for the longest time. Yet, they keep eating my annual remainder hours.. The little thefts are how they keep things afloat...

The ebay bucks thing is a little different, yet still just about making $$$..

Just one more reason for people to cheat eBay out of PayPal fees by using the gift option for purchases. A dish best served cold.

I used to get a kick out of seeing what cheap gadget I could buy from Hong Kong with my eBay bucks.

Seriously, guys?

All you have to do is spend $250 per quarter to get to the $5 threshold. Heck, if you do it on Double eBay Buck Days, you only have to spend $125 per quarter. I don't see what the big fuss is about.
