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.”


Error – cannot use paypal..

Error – wrong code error…
golly… Oops we are having problems…

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?

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.

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.

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?

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.

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!
