eBay Closes Anything Points in the US
eBay has decided to discontinue the eBay Anything Points program on the U.S. eBay site. The program will officiallly end on February 28, 2006 but existing points will be valid until August 31, 2006. eBay sellers can continue to offer Anything Points as a buying incentive in their auctions until August 15th.
eBay stated that the program has been discontinued after "receiving input from U.S. members and assessing the benefit to the U.S. Community." The program will continue to run in Canada. Similar incentive services are available from third-party providers such as MyStoreCredit, Aucser, and PayCodes.
