Coupon code is "PMAY4TH"

15% OFF sitewide until 10 PM EST or 7 PM PST (about 3.5 hours from this post) on 5/4/2018 which means you can stock up on engine air filters and cabin air filters.

For my 2016 Forester, Engine air filter is 16546AA12A. Cabin air filter is 72880FG000. Oil filter is 15208AA130.

I just bought the Bosch HEPA 6038C cabin air filter (eBay item number:362101542440, @ $16.99), and the OEM engine air filter (eBay item number:192399207818 @ $7.99)

If you need the AA130 oil filters, Jackie @ Annapolis Subaru has them cheaper than anyone on eBay currently @ $6.04 each.

Thanks for posting this. The eBay link doesn't work for me, but I was able to get to the discount directly from the eBay home page. And anyway, all that matters is the code.

I wonder what's going on at eBay that makes them so generous? Amazon winning the battle? This is the third discount in recent days, and like the first one, pretty much unrestricted. The second one was narrowly defined, and the thing I needed wasn't included. So I bought it at full price. I should have read the tea leaves and been more patient.

And as for Jackie - We
Jackie!

They get posted on some of the Daily Deal kind of sites or email distributions. And the three recent ones showed up when you went to eBay's home page, if you happened to get there during the period of validity.

Great deal! Do you folks locate these codes by luck or is there some way to find them as they come up?
Part checking eBay homepage every now and then and getting lucky, or checking out Slickdeals front page.

As far as why they are doing this, I think I read speculation that it was to draw people back to eBay (since they are losing customers to Amazon) and also due to their recent corporate tax cut.

Thread with a lot more discussion:

If you have an ebay account they will email you with the codes.
I've been with them for years, get regular announcements of items that meet my search criteria, but have never gotten an announcement of one of these discounts from them. I guess you're among the lucky.

I didn't get an email for this sale as well. It's one of those hit or miss things. I believe this was only advertised on the main page and not sent out as an email or eBay message.
