eBay: 10% Bucks Offer, $100 BP Gift Card for $67

The Offer

eBay is sending out a targeted Bucks offer today:

  • Get 10% back in eBay Bucks on purchases $50+

screen-shot-2016-09-14-at-12-04-47-pm

Offer valid through September 16 PT, three days only.

Stack the Deal

There are a number of things that stack together at the moment to make it an awesome time to buy stuff on eBay, including third party gift cards:

As an example, you might be able to get $100 BP or Speedy gas gift card for just $67. The $100 gas gift cards are selling for $92, but after deducting $15 and 10% and 1.2% it ends up around $67, aside from regular credit card points you’ll earn on the purchase.

If you have discounted eBay gift cards, you might end up paying just $65 or less.

Here’s a list of current gift card options:

Unfortunately, the $100 Exxon cards are sold out.

Our Verdict

I’m really bummed that I stopped getting Bucks offers the past few weeks. For those with the Bucks or coupon offer, it’s sure a good time to buy now. It’s great also that they made this a three-day offer.

The BP deal (GCW 89%) and Speedy (GCW 88%) and Cabela’s (GCW 76%) and Banana (GCW 74%) have some resale potential.

Here are 33 things to know about eBay and Paypal.

Nothing for me. No discounts nowhere, but I have a Bonus Bucks balance to spend this month. Maybe that cancels it out?

I didn’t notice until it was too late that the Best Buy deal kicks off a $10 Best Buy bonus card that expires in a month (rather than a $110 Best Buy GC for $100). Now I’ve got 5 $10 codes I’ll need to find a way to use. Hopefully they can all be applied to a single order…

Oh that’s an interesting note. Any fine print on how to apply the codes and the limitations involved?

John

I used all 5 of my $10 codes on a single order.

limit 10 online, 15 in-store.

I guess what we could do is use a bunch of these small $10 and $15 expiring BB gift cards, buy an item at BB that would be expensive enough to use them all and then the next day return the item and get one large, never expiring BB gift card…

Can’t check out – I just keep getting an error. Dang PPDG and Ebay…

Are you getting the below error message? I can’t seem to shake this error. I don’t how so many others are avoiding this.

“Something went wrong. Please try to check out again.”

Jon
Jon

Constantly. And even when I overcame it I not get this bizarre error saying “PayPal is not a payment option” when I’m trying to check out with PayPal on the BB GCs. But I don’t get the same error for BP GCs. So I’m playing PPDG.

Eric

Are you saying you were able to purchase BP gc? I only tried Cabela’s and Speedway and keep on receiving that error.

Is anyone else having these problems?

I had $15 coupon on one of the Ebay a/c so was able to use it on the BP gas card deal along with 10% ebay bucks. Also, I used several Ebay GCs. So, looks like the grace period has started where you can now buy third party GCs with Ebay GCs.

Thanks for the grace period – just finished unloading $700 worth of ebay GCs. :). And the 10% bucks offer also helped a lot!

How do you find your ebay bucks info?? when I click on ebay bucks under “BUY” it just goes to the summary page!

log out and then log back in to your ebay account, it will start working.

If that doesn’t work, clear your cache. That fixes the issue for me every time.

I got the 10% ebay bucks offer, but it says that it is not valid on gift cards… Can I buy a digital gift card with this offer and get 10% back? Thanks!

Bad timing on my part – just bought the Speedway g/c and a couple automotive
items this morning to use the $20 off $100 promo.
Two hours later the eBucks email arrives.
Ended up buying another Speedway card now for the $9.2 in eBucks 🙂

Are portals still tracking for third party gift cards?

Be careful:
Qualifying purchase excludes all items in the following categories: Classifieds, Business & Industrial, Real Estate, eBay Gift Cards (within the Gift Cards & Coupons category), Bullion (within the Coins & Paper category), and eBay Motors (including Parts & Accessories).

So you will earn just 2% even if you are targeted for 10%

Lantean

what’s your point???

Can’t get 10% bucks if you buy BP giftcards

John

Yes, I have been able to get the 10% bucks on BP gift cards I bought today.

John Smith

Don’t know what happened to me. few minutes ago I activated and it still showed 2%. That’s why I reread the terms again.
Log out and log in again now it shows 10%.
Sorry my bad, but why terms say excluding all gift cards?

FB

You sure can. I received $9.2 for Speedway today.

you don’t understand the difference between eBay gift card and BP gift card.

Nope..not true…ONLY eBay GC’s are excluded.

The restriction is on buying EBAY gift cards only. You will earn bucks for other types of third party gift cards.

I need more circles, and less arrows.

Showing how to stack deals isn’t really going to kill offers that are already dead in the water.

It’s looking that I was only awarded eBay Bucks for the portion of my order paid for with cash; I didn’t earn Bucks on the amount I paid with gift cards.

Is that a longstanding policy, or something that’s also changed?

Lucas
Lucas

Correction: EBay only showed the bucks earned from the last item in my cart at checkout. All of my Bucks actually did post!

Has anybody tried to purchase the Best Buy gc and sell to third party such as Saveya? Is it possible ?(given the short time till the extra gift card expires)

B

Because the promotional code is separate from the main gift card, you can still sell the main gift card to any of the resell sites.

Even though the promotional code can be balance checked like a GC, the expiration date will get you in trouble with the resell sites. I’d suggest doing what others are doing here and turn the promo codes into another gift card.

I kept checking my email and I finally got the 10% offer. Yes! Now I can finally use up my remaining ~$150 in ebay gift cards.
