New eBay Gift Card Usage Limits Just Went into Effect
As reported last week, eBay added new language to their gift card terms which cap the total amount of gift cards which can be used at $2,000 per 60-day. We’ll call this the 2k/60 limit; full details in this post.
At that time, it wasn’t being enforced, but just a few hours ago it went into effect.
We can’t apply this gift card. You’ve already redeemed the maximum amount of gift card funds allowed per order.
It’s in effect retroactively, meaning that you don’t get a fresh start; if you’ve used $2k within the past 60-days, the system won’t allow the gift card to be applied.
I’d guess that the new bullion exclusion is also in effect.
We’ll update the 33 Things to Know about eBay and Paypal to reflect the change in terms.
Thanks to friends Matt and others who pointed this out
