Our Verdict

These Flash Sales from eBay seem to be coming every few days now. This one is working on gift cards; only eBay gift cards are excluded. No need to add any other items to your cart.

There are still tons of discounted gift cards available on eBay to further the discount.

Looks like the T&C says you can’t use the coupon if paying with eBay gift card

“Coupon is subject to U.S. laws, void where prohibited, not redeemable for cash, has no face value, and cannot be combined with any other Coupon or used when paying with an eBay Gift Card. eBay may cancel, amend, or revoke the Coupon at any time. Use of automated devices or programs for Coupon redemption prohibited.”

I tried and timed out. Was anyone able to use the coupon with eBay GC successfully?

I used the code with an ebay gift card and it worked fine for me

Same to me. But I was able to buy full priced panera gcs. Maybe it does not work on discounted only.

I’m getting this when I add the gift card:

We are having a technical hiccup and PayPal isn’t available right now. You can pay with a credit or debit card instead.

But of course, no coupon if you pay with a card directly to ebay.

When I add the coupon, I mean.

Same issue, boo..I just bought a bunch of ebay gift cards for this sale!

Now getting that, too.

Coincidentally, I’m trying to log in to my PayPal account and keep getting a ‘Problem loading page’ error, so they seem to be having some issues right now.

I was able to use it twice, but having problems on my 3rd account

“Looks like that’s the wrong code. Please try again.”

Hmmm.

I got all those same errors.. Tried multiple times, but finally it seems to have worked..

It’s now working for me. Grabbed a gas card, no filler.

With an ebay GC?

Paul

No. Still clear about $14 without it.

I was getting error till I just left PP default payment option (bank), then applied the code + ebay GC
It went through.

Deb

Same as Mike. Errors until, at checkout I added the coupon code first before signing into paypal. Then it worked no problem.

Had troubles as well. Be sure to put the code and then change your payment method. For me, it’s always auto defaulted to debit card. When I selected credit card first, I experienced the error messages.

Jim

It’s almost like they don’t want our money. No wonder ebay is going under. It’s a ridiculous process just to check out.

I am unable to get an order through. Getting all kinds of errors (non consistent) when trying to use my paypal as a payment method along with the coupon code – With or without an ebay gift card. Guess I will keep trying till they fix their programming error.

Is anybody having issues using old small denomination ebay GCs like $5 or $10’s?

Jim

The totally random thing I did before it finally went through: I deleted then added back in manually the last number of the gift card.

Did you also know that this rock keeps Tigers away?

They sure have us guessing. What a glitchy system.

Does anyone know if my wife and I can both take advantage of this deal. Different Ebay and Paypal accounts, but we have the same address.

Jim

Yes. I have the same situation and got it twice.

Thanks! Scored the Circle K card at $77 + 1% SB + Barclay points. Had a little trouble getting through – first the code, then paypal, then I got completely kicked out of ebay – but finally got it! Much appreciated!

I was able to use a Ebay gift card to pay for part of the purchase

Fizz

First order failed said unable to processed payment of eBay gift card and coupon. Second time able to order by eBay gift card and coupon but eBay change my payment to default PayPal payment(bank) and remove coupon AFTER order. This happened once in past when I use eBay Gift card and coupon. Check your PayPal

Working now with Paypal. Got past the technical error.

able to get $50ebay gc plus $25 other GC. took two tries since the first gc vendor went our of stock by the time i put the codes in, but found another one and code worked fine.

Jeff

Success when ordering non GC item that I have been wanting, BUT no matter what seller I chose, Ebay applied sales tax. Still happy with the deal after coupon applied (took second effort) … I missed any chance to use CC … went straight to bank payment.
Saved $8.25 over Amazon same item. Both free shipping.

Thanks DOC

Buying a gas gift card, trying to pay through paypal, not with gift card, discount code doesn’t work
“looks like that’s the wrong code. Try again”

These deals help me liquidate some Paypal funds under the table…

Just purchased two gift cards for restaurants I enjoy for take out. Each GC had a bonus on top of the gift card value. Final purchase: $60 by paypal for $90 of gift cards (including bonuses on each of $10 + $5), I’ll be waiting for coupons like “buy one get one free” in the mail before using these gift cards to stretch the value even more!

$100 Overstock gift card on sale for $85 and bought it for $70, thank you.

It’s mind-boggling how bad the eBay/PayPal checkout system is. This is the 3rd time in recent memory that I’ve tried to take advantage of a flash sale towards the end of the limited time period and find that my purchase is declined afterwards for no apparent reason, which they don’t notify me about until after the discount code expires… My fault for not making my purchase earlier but still, their unreliability and and totally random glitchiness that so many of you have already mentioned today is absolutely ridiculous!

Jim

I got the same problems, miss the flash sale deal

Blake

My checkout with code + ebay GC for the entire amount seemed to go through fine – just noticed today that the total purchase amount was deducted from my bank account (which is linked to PayPal)! Didn’t get the $15 off, nor did I get to use the GCs. This is totally bogus. Guess it’s time to fight with support.
