Ebay has a 15% off everything at the moment for a couple of days.
Put in the code: Click15 as a voucher code when checking out. $100 maximum discount. Ebay covers the discount cost, not the seller.
One issue with this, is that sellers put their prices up when they know ebay are doing deals.
I put a camera in my shopping cart and put the code in and reduced the price by $100, but I wasn't 100% sure I wanted it so left it there. Putting an item in your cart is not a commitment to buy. A few hours later I went back and checked, and the price had been revised. They put the item price up by $30. They just realized the deal was on so they up their price. Very dodgy. Needless to say that I removed it from my cart, and bought from someone else.
yeap Ebay is always good to find things and compare prices with normal websites. Sometimes the same business will be a fair bit cheaper on their website compared to their Ebay listing, so it's good to check first.
I sometimes just browse, and find things that I want that I didn't want before I saw it. I'm bad for online shopping too Mark
In terms of gardening supplies, I've found vendors selling heirloom seeds and green plastic plant protectors with cane stakes for a fraction of the price of local suppliers. It's such a shame really - I want to support the stores but the prices are just far too exorbitant, including the big boys (Masters, Bunnings).
So true... There's a lot of good bargains online and on eBay in particular not only that but why walk miles around town only to find no retailer stocks the product you're after when you can punch it into eBay search and usually find it.
Today I got an 'ebay group buy deal' on a gas water heater.
I was looking for one for the cabin but the prices were way too high.
Then yesterday this deal email from ebay showed one that suits for $199 whereas the normal price is $429.
So I got one.
It can hang up anywhere & have a garden hose & gas cylinder attached & whalla, a hot shower.
The cabin has a very small electric water heater plumbed in but for those who would like a bath or a healthy soak or to do hot washing, this little unit will be ideal as it can hang just under the high roof of the porch & service both the bathtub & laundry.
That's a brilliant little portable gas hot water heater! I want to get one and I don't even need it...
Geez it's amazing what gadgets we have now to do all kinds of things. I could have done with one of those during my army days it would have made those cold bucket showers out in the scrub much more pleasant!
Please let us know how well it works in the cabin?
Yes mate, pardon the pun but selling plants on eBay is growing fast!
There's a ton of gardener hobbyists making a tidy sum out of selling saved seeds and plants made from cuttings etc better than the Sunday markets.
I've been buying seeds and plants from eBay for at least 10 years but over the last 2-3 years larger plants, fruit trees, and other hobby made gardening stuff has really picked up.
Search for "rare seeds on eBay" and there's heaps of unique plants to buy that you just won't find in the local nursery and that's one of the reasons I started shopping for plants on eBay was to find different tomato seeds to try and then it opened up a whole new gardening world for me - I can surf plants for hours...
