    Did not work for me. Does it have to be one single item? I tried it with two items in my cart.

    sorry if this was posted but i got an alert from ebay about this coupon and it worked for me. its for members that have been "with us from the very beginning." they also included some buying stats from over the years. not sure what qualifies as the "very beginning" but i joined January 1999.

    Worked for me. I got a CD that I had been eyeing that was originally $27.99 (Kinks Ugly Pink GH) and my total was $5.75. I did get the email from ebay directly.

    No guilt there! :)

    I started August of 1999 and I didn't get it. 1999 is definitely not the "very beginning" though.

    Apparently I joined eBay in July 1998! I guess that's close enough to the beginning! :D

    Same here. When I was a kid, all I seemed to get from each home while trick-or-treating was a rock.

    Worked for me. Never received the coupon but used the code and Bingo, that $26.97 LP was $1.97 + tax on full amount. Cool beans

    1-9-99 got me a $25 coupon. My other account from 1-3-98 also got me a coupon. And my third account is from Nov-26-98 but I cannot figure out the password and cannot reset it with an obsolete e-mail address.

    Interesting how you got it but the person in post #81 did not. I guess the date isn't the only qualifying factor.

    Does anyone else find it creepy how they're mining all that data and then telling you about it in the message? I mean things bought from 2001, 2002, 2006? :laugh: I actually got one of these messages telling me about old things but no coupon code attached. Nice of them.

    At least it’s history from their own site. Doesn’t bother me.

    I don’t like searching for something on one site, then seeing a bunch of ads on multiple other sites for that searched item.

    Like many people who joined near the beginning I have separate accounts for buying and selling and the coupon worked on both (both got the offer message). I started the selling account in 1997, but the records they are pulling from for your first sale and your first buy apparently only go back to around 2000. They show first sale as 2001, but I was rocking back when eBay was partying like it was 1999.

    I still haven't found anything to use my two coupons on. Everything is so overpriced on eBay compared to other places. And enough with the media mail shipping. Not doing that right now.

    Saying eBay is overpriced on everything is not only painting with a broad brush, it is also incorrect. If I had 25 coupons, I’d be able to use every one of them. Zero issues with media mail either. Things sometimes take a day or two longer, I can live with that.

    It's also risky buying from non-business sellers. If the sale falls through for some reason, like they don't actually have the product, I think it would be highly unlikely that eBay would re-issue the coupon.

    Well it looks like you are looking for every reason under the sun not to use the coupon. More power to you.

    I'm currently enjoying a 5 disc box set by The Primitives that I purchased from importCDs on eBay. Longtime fan of this band and I was beyond pleased to have this arrive on my doorstep (by media mail) for less than $5.00 thanks to the coupon.

    Last day today! It's free money - just use it! We have people in other forums selling on eBay maybe you can get a CD (or a FREE HUGS coupon) you just kind of want for super cheap.

    I ended up buying a Johnny Cash I Walk The Line SACD with one coupon and a Little Feat D**** Chicken MQA CD with the other coupon.
