Used the wife’s account. I tried checking out as a guest first but it wouldn’t allow me to do that.

Any one know if there's a certain amount or % united outdoors with approve? I've done best offers with them and sometimes they'll allow $10 off, sometimes less than that... seems to depend on the price of the knife - thoughts?

I think the higher the price the more they'll take off with your offer. Last month they had the Gayle Bradley 2 for $155, I offered $140 and they accepted. Then a couple days ago they had a Salt 2 for $81, I offered $67 and they countered with $78. Ended up settling at $73. With both of these knives I was also able to use the 20% coupons as well.

From these examples, they seem to readily accept 90% offers.

If they have anything I'm interested in, I might offer 75% and hope they settle somewhere below 90%, but at least 90% is likely.

I was able to get 12.25% best offer on a Lil Native from the ebay seller (plus 20% off). I’ve had no luck with any percentages above that. 20% offer resulted in a decline from the seller.

An important question that I don't know the answer to is - when you use a coupon that works for only specific sellers, how much of that discount is covered by the seller vs eBay? By contrast, the $15 off $75 or the sitewide 15% or 20% off are covered solely by eBay.
Clearly if United Outdoors is paying a portion of the discount (which I believe they are), they aren't going to have as much flexibility with a best offer.

I couldn't let the 20% off ebay deal end last night without a final deal.

Blurple G10 S110V PM2 for $109.32 including best offer, 20% promo, and $100 ebay gift card for $90.

Well done BigGrove.

I just read a Bloomberg article about eBay struggling to compete.

From the CEO: “We’re going to invest more in marketing in the second half than we ever have,” Wenig said. “We’re going to spend a lot of money to bring new buyers on to the platform.”

Let the deals continue!!!

No shipping cost

Here's hoping for another 20% off site-wide. If I recall correctly the last one was good for up to $100 discount ($500 total in cart).

Tired of shopping one seller though with the recent coupons. They were very sluggish/stingy with best offers durning the last promo. Am I wrong or is it the same seller with 2 or 3 storefronts?
