If you do not have or open one of those accounts, you can only transfer your Reward to your bank account or debit card linked to PayPal.

Our Verdict

Similar recent deal required sending $10 to a friend as well. Nice and easy $5 if you’re targeted.

Same, Dec 22. No email from Paypal that I’d received money. But then, I didn’t receive an email about this offer but found I was eligible for change. Bonus: they stopped nagging me to download the app!

Same as Jason. A very low-profile promo, but $5 is $5. Thanks, Doc!

Can anyone confirm the sender in this email? I got the email and was hit with the same Not eligible for this email address rejection upon clicking the link. Messaged PP and was told we only send out emails from service@paypal.com mine came from paypal@mail.paypal.com

Sometimes I wish the PayPal credit card was more competitive due to the increase in online sales due to COVID 19

Didn’t get the email, but after clicking the link and logging in, it appears I’m eligible. Fingers crossed I get it.

It’s interesting to see so many companies just flatout buying customers and not even trying to hide it.

I got it in 2 different email addresses, but when i click the email link, it says not eligible for this email address, use the email associated with the offer…. Um, yeah, i did. I never use apps unless absolutely necessary, so it should have worked since I’m certain i never downloaded the app before.

Could you elaborate what you got?
Targeted email ? or $5 cash in your Paypal account? How soon after app instal and login?

Is this for those who got the email only or the link posted here can verify eligibility?

Today when I logged into my Paypal account on my laptop, I got the $5 offer for downloading the Paypal app and logging in. So I did but no reward yet. Logged into P2 ‘s and P3’s Paypal accounts, one got offered $25 back if making 3 $35+ purchases at selected merchants (Walmart, etc), one got offered $5 for sending $10 to someone.

H.P. Same experience as you and no reward yet for me as well.
The page I got for this $5 didn’t have a save offer button as shown in the DoC post so may be that is from the email.

The $25 offer has been around for quite sometime. The save offer button on this one is weird – no matter how many times you save it it doesn’t show as saved anywhere.
Also that offer has a max number of users cap which probably has been hit long ago.

Ron I got the $5 offer as shown in the DoC post when I went to Paypal site on my laptop. When I clicked on “Save $5 Offer” and logged into my (P1) account, it told me to download the app and log in.

When I repeated the process with P2 and P3 account, it did the Eligibility Check then said “Not eligible for this email address”. I think that’s because P2 and P3 previously had used the Paypal app. Tried P4 and it passed the Eligibility Check. Going to try P5 and P6 🙂 next.

I was also trying it on laptop first and passed eligibility check . After that it was a get the app button and QR code for me.
Did you receive the $5 yet?

Ron No $5 reward yet. Passed Eligibility Check for P5 and P6 as well. Basically it comes down to a user (email address) that had not logged into the Paypal app before.

P1 not eligible. P2 passed eligibility check. P3 not eligible. All three received the email invitation.

Terms say ‘Reward will be added to the Eligible Participant’s Valid Account within approximately seven-two (72) hours but may be available sooner’.
