I'm waiting for the maximum final value fees of £1 to come back. That's the only deal that tempts me.

How is this a perma-deal ?
How many items have you listed per month each month for the past year.....several hundred, or even a thousand ?
Everyone has an allowance (selling limit) which varies, for many people it's 100 items per month, so no matter if the promo is for 1,000 free listings, those people can only list 100.
I started with 100 and now have an allowance of several thousand, whilst those who were members from the beginning have an unlimited selling limit I believe.
For the past few months I have been getting 100 free listings per day, but only valid for one month, so at the end of each month there is always the chance it will not be renewed, and my hundreds of listings will end gradually over the next 30 days unless sold.
This promo, in my case, is for 100 free listings per day every day until the 31st December, so I don't need to panic at the end of every month, in the knowledge that I can plan ahead to list my stuff when I want, end items which have low page views and then relist them (You'll be amazed how often that works, and kind of 'triggers' better visibility and sometimes a sale).......
http://pages.ebay.co.uk/promos/2016/103553.html

Of course in typical ebay style, the expiry date in my allowance section is given as tomorrow 2nd October, despite the large bold print stating it's until 3st December - ebay has been full of errors and glitches recently, partly due to the new seller hub they are rolling out at the moment.
Anyway, have fun and be lucky those who have a good promo, and why vote cold because you didn't get it...... sour grapes perhaps ?

That sort of deal is of course brilliant for those selling stuff priced over a tenner, but many people have a limited amount of items to dispose of at that price, and often try to sell dozens of cheaper items at a few pounds each.
For me, a discount on the fvf is better, as that works on every sale, even if only a fiver then a 50% discount saves 25p per sale, and with a hundred or more sales each month it all adds up...... and sometimes the promo is for 75% off the fvf, so even more of a saving.
ebay are a business of course, and so they are experimenting to see what works best - if they want more high value listings then a cap on the fvf which you prefer is a good choice for them.

How many private sellers list 100 items per month, every month?
Anyone who does sounds ripe for investigation as a disguised business, I would suggest

I'm sure I've not listed 100 items in total over the 10 years I've been registered.

I've got this, that said I've had free listings pretty much continuous for the year, opted in once (was in the promotions section in my eBay) and it has just auto renewed every month. Either I have gotten extremely lucky or I think more likely eBay are simply moving to a listing fee free model, which makes a lot of sense IMHO as they will get a lot more items listed as there isn't the initial barrier to entry of the listing fee and ultimately more profit through FVF when items sell....

Some people list far more than that every month as a private seller - it causes all sorts of heated debates on the seller forums !
It is quite easy when disposing of a ton of outgrown baby and toddler clothes to list a lot every month, unless you do a 1p start auction and risk giving them away, due to auctions not always getting more than a single bid unless it's a rock-bottom price.
Another scenario is an older person who is selling off a lifetime's collection of stamps, postcards, football programmes, those marvel superhero comics and so on - that sort of stuff can take over a year to shift at a fair market price, and so it is quite possible for a private seller to list a thousand items every month and perhaps only sell a dozen or so, as they will only be bought when the right person is looking, and actually wants that item to fill a gap in their collection.

I'd second this. It's annoying when people say "oh you shouldn't sell more than x items as a private seller", mind your own bleeping business I say!

People seem to forget that listing an item on eBay does not always, or sometimes even often, result in that listed item selling, not everything is that popular or sought after. Surely when deciding if one is (or should be) private or business seller you have to look at the revenue from the items sold (which is always far less than what is initially listed) minus eBay's hefty fvf fees, paypal's fee and the cost of actually shipping the item/s. After all that even popular personal sellers will not be pulling in a business sized income!

The offer is 100 free listings per day upto 31st December. Capped at your monthly allowance.

This is brilliant for me because I am selling of my collection of comics and kids school books and tat collection, so yes it is easy to sell over 100 items per month or even per day. I list anything that I can make money on, you will be surprised how many things you have lying around, cds, videos, books, housewares, old chargers, electronics, cables, unused toiletries, etc. It really depends on how much effort you want to make to maximise your income.

I am, that's why I take exception to scamming traders who mascarade by as a private seller in an attempt to avoid their legal responsibilities and taxes ... taxes that are required to fund the NHS, education, etc

Maximise your wealth by not wasting your money on the tat in the first place ;)

Can I afford it?
Do I need it?
Will I use it?

Good luck trying to shift those videos - even the charity shops don't want them nowadays

It's all about prospective and timing, with this type of listing you do not have to worry about listing a restricted amount, just list on a continuous basis. Old chargers are the best, inevitable that somewhere somebody will want 'old' stuff either as a replacement or purely for their collection.

What I perceive as tat, like Nike, Sony,Adidas ,Apple, etc items , will probably be seen as luxury in your household. 8)
