Do Shopping Portals and Gift Cards Work for Third-Party Sellers (Amazon, Walmart, Sears, eBay)?
When buying third-party merchandise on websites like Amazon, Walmart, Sears, or eBay: do shopping portal rewards track for these third-party vendors? Can you use a gift card as payment?
Yes, both portals and gift cards should work.
I’m aware of four such marketplaces that offer portal rewards and allow gift cards: Amazon Walmart, Sears, and eBay.
- eBay is entirely third-party sellers (eBay doesn’t sell anything themselves) so obviously portals and gift cards work for any seller.
- Portals and gift cards work on Amazon for third-party sellers.
- Portals and gift cards work on walmart.com for third-party sellers. [Gift cards work, and thanks to Orensmoneysaver (via personal message) for the data point that portals work too . His specific data point was with the Discover portal, but there shouldn’t be any difference.]
- Portals and gift cards work on Sears for third-party sellers. [At least they used to as of a couple years ago.]
If anyone has counter data points or data points on additional third-party marketplaces other than the four mention, please comment below.
Thanks to reader munna for bringing up the question
