I have heard buenas, días, y tardes all used individually as informal, general-purpose greetings. They seem to be used with a certain intonation and in certain circumstances. For example, I haven't really heard it when you're directly addressing a person, but I have heard it when you walk into a store and you're not really addressing anyone very personally. It feels similar to walking in someplace and saying "hey" to whoever is there.
If you find something wrong with my Spanish, please correct it!
