Default What to do with few $ of eBay bucks.

I almost always end up with under $2 worth of eBay bucks. As far as I can tell they dont have an <1 category that I could browse. What do you guys do with your eBay bucks?

or...if there's something in the classifieds you want, ask the seller to put it on ebay (make a private auction) that way, you can use your ebay bucks

They count towards anything you buy. So if you buy a $10 item, the $2 eBay bucks will go toward it, leaving you to pay the remaining balance.

You don't HAVE to spend just the $2.

BTW advanced search and set the price range to see all the $1-$2 garbage.

Try browsing a specific category like electronics or antiques.

It should let you browse categories sorted by price, but probably not the whole site.

Well 1st, buy this
http://www.ebay.com/itm/1-dollar-bil...#ht_500wt_1192

This stuff is amazing, if it's 3M
http://www.ebay.com/itm/3M-Auto-Acry...#ht_2656wt_952

Might be a bit out of your price range, useful if you can find a metric version
