I feel like they're doing them more this year than any previous year.
I really couldn't figure out what their angle was. In most cases, they're discounting more than they bring in. It looks like the current fee structure with listing, selling and paypal fees brings them roughly 14% of the final value, yet they're discounting 15-20% in these sales. That comes out of ebay's pocket, not the sellers'.
I've long suspected that it has to do with bumping up their sales numbers toward the end of a fiscal quarter and the previous dates seem to coincide with that.
Looking through a quick google search of threads on some seller sites, there are rumors that there will be a 15% code between x-mas and the end of the year so hold off until next week if you can.
