EBay is sucking more and more. I just got this email:
Dear ebay sucker:
As always, eBay is committed to bringing you amazing deals on gold and silver. However, to do so, we can no longer offer eBay Bucks for purchases from the Bullion category within Coins & Paper Money. This change will take effect October 1, 2011. To learn more about earning and redeeming eBay Bucks, visit the Frequently Asked Questions page. And remember that you can always tell whether an item qualifies for eBay Bucks by looking for the earn amount below the price on the item description page.
To review the updated eBay Bucks Terms & Conditions, please visit https://pages.ebay.com/rewards/terms.html.
We appreciate your eBay Bucks membership and hope you'll continue to enjoy the benefits provided by the eBay Bullion Center, including great savings and fast, free shipping from Featured Sellers—and eBay Buyer Protection for your purchases.
The eBay Bucks team
Bend over so we can stick it to ya!
I sent the following to all their featured and top sellers:
Ebay is screwing you
Because eBay will no longer offer eBay Bucks for purchases from the Bullion category within Coins & Paper Money, I will not buy any bullion products from you in the future.
Please let eBay know they have shot themselves in the foot again.
