OK, just got a eBay bucks offer. 6% online. 10% if I use a mobile device.

What's a good use of these offers today? Did you guys get the same offer?

@Varmint @Win @enbloc @samandglove1
The best deal would be a coin that avoids MA tax but qualifies for Bucks.

Here's one, about $70 under spot:

The problem is Apmex and MCM don't seem to understand that 3 coins totaling $1000 avoids MA tax. I emailed them about it and MCM is looking into it. Hard to find other vendors whose items qualify for Bucks. Those two are my go to sellers.

would never pay a sales tax for PMs. looks like the end of ebay purchases for me.
on EBay you can still buy single items over $1000 and avoid tax. So silver only has to go to $50 and a roll of silver eagles will be tax free. Give it a year or two.
They also have the 100-coin Silver Eagles boxes those are tax free. :)

if I can find a tax free Silver Eagle listing for 100ct and use ebay bucks then it's a no brainer. but finding a listing that qualifies for ebay bucks is hard enough.

I've never seen that, no. And it would be only $100 max anyway.

I bought as much silver as I could the last 3 years when it was cheap and luckily Ebay was still good for buying PMs.

I picked up a silver 1 Kilo Perth mint 2016 Monkey last night on Ebay. Prices are buying prices in my mind - but yea the tax stinks!
