Free listing offer - terms & conditions

In the free listing no chat thread, Steviebabes has posted "Remember second chance offers and collection only sales don't qualify".
I can't see this in the terms and conditions.   When did this change for collection only sales?
Am I missing something?  Previously collection only sales were included.

    You are correct, I have checked the T&C's and can't see anything about collection only items so they must be included. I read on here that they wen't included but that may have been a while ago. I will edit my post, thank you.

    It is worth always checking your own offers- these funny little t and cs often crop up unnoticed- and not everyone has the same T and Cs. 

    My offer does not exclude collection items.

    Hello everyone, I haven't had an email with offers in over a year. Could one of you send a link? Thanks in advance

    The links don't work unless you are on the list to get the offer anyway.
    Like you I have not had any offers since February.  I have now given up hoping for one.

    Thanks for letting me know Moonpenny. I started selling a few items and I'm hoping that will fix the problem.

    Sorry to say but "no it won't " Nothing fixes it!
    I have tried everything - listing at full fees, selling, not listing, not selling and nothing changes.

    I just hope that when February comes around again (1 yr) I will start  getting them again.

    It is an odd business, I had one for 100 listings with no fees to pay, and then every fortnight after that I've had one for 80% off fees. This has been going on for months now. 

    Before I got the offers I had not sold anything for years, and I list nothing other than via these offers. Not complaining like, but how this is worked out is beyond me.

    I’m still trucking along with 70% off FVFs offer every 2 weeks, although one of my accounts missed a month after I got a late defect. I list a fair bit and do sometimes list without there being an offer on if I’m desperate to make some room.  My listing can be sporadic as it depends what I have lying around to list so sometimes I just re list my existing items and sometimes I add new items.
