    If you save it as a draft, then make it go live on Friday after you've accepted the offer, then yes.

    This is how I do it, a few days after my auctions close I draft the next batch of listings and await the new offer.

    That way I get a week "off" of eBay selling. It's been a somewhat intense 6 months!

    If this weekend follows the pattern of the past few, it's going to be 70% off FVF, although obviously no guarantees there. If I queue something today to start on Saturday, and then accept the 70% offer on Friday, will the item I've queued still be eligible?
    Obviously always double check as they do sometimes change the T and Cs, and even give different T and Cs to different people. However mine always state clearly that anything listed to go live during the offer period will be covered by the FVF offer.
