TameBay have been a little lax on the spending front recently, at least that’s not quite true, both Dan and I have been busily spending money on eBay but on our personal eBay accounts.
Our TameBay eBay account hasn’t been used for buying for a couple of years but eBay haven’t given up on us – they’ve just sent us a 10% off voucher for anything between a £40 and £100 purchase on eBay.
Rather annoyingly I just purchased a from the weekly deals yesterday – if the voucher had been 12 hours earlier TameBay could have saved me £6.50 (grrr :-)).
It is good to know that eBay are tapping up dormant accounts to get them spending though. The UK is one of the most highly penetrated eBay markets in the world and there are only so many new buyers that they can bring to the site. Getting dormant buyers returning to the site and spending again is almost more important (and probably cheaper!) than recruiting a brand new buyer.
Did anyone else get a voucher? If so what did you spend yours on?
