As always, buying Munchkin promos on eBay isn't a great idea. We often reprint promos -- sometimes even packing them and releasing them for sale http://www.worldofmunchkin.com/gp2/ -- so spending $5, $10, etc. on one promo is not the best option.
also, most of the cards never appear on European events which means people from overseas (just like me) need a source to get these promos....

one idea from my side: I was delighted when I found a big bunch of regular promos available at low cost via W23. If I knew, that after a certain time I could order all promos that way, I could wait for that time to come.
Personally I don't like the reprints like the "Gets Promoted" because the cards receive their own expansion icon and therefore become "regular" in my eyes...

I know and I was hoping that new releases would turn up there after some time.

It does get updated, just, just not with extreme frequency, plus when you do order from there, there are lots of promos not on that list they randomly send out, my last order had several.

eBay sees more traffic each day than Warehouse 23 sees in a month. This means that some Munchkin fans _never_ visit W23 and find themselves spending their money at eBay as they chase down promo cards. So: A few who visit W23 buy promos . . . then sell those promos on eBay (and Amazon).

Munchkin arbitrage appears to be a thing.

I know, I can't stand that. Anyone I see looking promos on ebay that I know are on W23, I direct them there, even with shipping it is still much cheaper as hardly anyone on ebay uses free shipping on cards so that's not an excuse. That and W23 is much faster and more consistent than ebay sellers...

I second the European problem. We literally have nothing this side of the pond (locally anyway) so are completely reliant on eBay sellers or W23. And for stuff like the vending machine cards or USAopoly ones, it's both an arm and a leg.
