[YMMV] 10% Off Any eBay Purchase Including All Gift Cards

The Offer

Direct Link

  • Use targeted coupon code and receive 10% off any eBay purchase.

In the past, this has worked for me on gift cards as well, including eBay gift cards. Obviously, this is a slammer deal since you can buy eBay gift cards and lock in the savings for future purchases.

The Fine Print

  • Expires 5/31/15
  • Max $100 discount using the coupon
  • One-time use
  • Minimum $75 purchase
  • Coupon is non-transferable

Our Verdict

I just found this coupon by mistake in my eBay account. Since it’s ‘Expiring Soon’ they had it flash somewhere in my eBay account. I never received communication from eBay about this to the best of my knowledge (and my searches) which is very odd.

I’m posting this for two reasons:

  1. There may be others who are targeted and don’t know about it. It’s really a killer deal and would be a shame to miss out on.
  2. More importantly, the direct link above seems to work for all times. I found the link in the eBay Community from a few years back and it still worked for me today. It may be worth checking every few weeks to see if you got a coupon offer. More likely, if you see people talking about having received such a coupon you can check that link and it should work if you got it as well. If you didn’t, it will come up as a blank screen.

I just wish I’d known about this coupon when it was originally attached to my account (a few weeks ago?) so that I could have used it on numerous large purchases of the past few weeks. No complaint though, and I’ll probably end up buying $1000 of eBay gift cards and getting the full $100 discount. (Dealing with Paypal on such large purchases is tough…we’ll see how it goes. Physical gift cards go easier.)

Please let us know if you find the coupon using the link and whether you had received communication from eBay about it.

UPDATE: Seems many others got this as well. More recently a Slickdeals thread started about this too.

Not seeing anything when I click the link, literally a blank page within my account settings (the side bar is still there), but my account is only a week old, so that could be the reason.

same here: blank page

“(Dealing with Paypal on such large purchases is tough…we’ll see how it goes. Physical gift cards go easier.)”
Paypal is saying “We are not able to process your payment using your PayPal account at this time. Please return to the merchant’s website and try using a different payment method (if available).”

Thoughts?

I’ve always received the same error when trying to make large purchases from Paypal Digital Gifts. It is a shame because buying these with 5x would be preferable.

Whoa, saw this in the corner of checkout today and thought it was some random spam ad. Thanks for posting about this! I would have totally not noticed this.

Those who are getting blank pages are not targeted for any such offer. The page link that Chuck has put here takes you to your offers list and if there is none it generates blank page. I had a blank pages in both my accounts. So I tried my wife’s account and it shows 1 recently expired coupon which I didn’t notice earlier. (although no regrets in missing out on that one, it was the dull coupon).

So the link that Chuck has provided is surely a very nice thing (Thanks Chuck), you can keep it bookmarked and can check it often for hidden targeted coupons.

YMMY but when I click the direct link, I do not see anything. However, if I go to the ebay.com website to my account and scroll down, I do have the offer (but using a code). It’s worth double checking your account.

Can anyone confirm if GCM has really stopped the CA nonsense? Would like this purchase to go through without mishaps

Yes, I can confirm, I recently ordered few Gift cards from GCM on Ebay and I used the same card which once had CA posted. Charge has posted as Merchandise and no CA.

I had noticed this in my account a few days ago but forgot about it. Just bought $1000 in eBay GC from GCM. Will wait for another good eBay Bucks promo or discount GC offer to use them. Thanks for the reminder!

I got this and found it by accident just like you (no email, nothing in messages, nothing on My eBay summary page). Early Friday morning (like 0:15 eastern) I hovered the mouse over the My eBay link at the top of the page and clicked one of the links there, but happened to notice that where it normally shows the eBay bucks total it said I had a 10% coupon that was about to expire. I only caught a glimpse of this though before the next page loaded. The next time I moused over the My eBay link it showed the eBay bucks total again. I was tired so I decided to try to figure it out later and went to bed. I forgot about trying to track down the coupon until late afternoon on Friday when I happened to see the expiration notice again on the My eBay mouseover (I guess it randomly appears or it depends on what eBay page you’re on?). So dug around in My eBay until I found the coupons section (it’s buried at the bottom of the My eBay “Buy” page). Mine expires on 5/30 but everything else is the same. By the way, it applies to multiple purchases as long as you pay for them all at the same time.

Sadly not available on my account and also saw that Ebates CB is back down to 1%.

Just bought $1000 in physical cards. Couldn’t get the e-cards to process. Too bad Ebates had already dropped to 1%.

Yea same here =/

I had noticed the coupon on my account the other day in one of the ad spaces. I clicked on it and noticed the end date of 5/31. For the life of me I cannot find it again. I have checked all through my account information and the link above just comes up blank. I know it was there before. Weirdness.

First of all, thanks for much for this little gem of a coupon. What an easy 100 dollar savings,

Second, what is the purpose behind this. Clearly they aren’t going out of their way to make this known.

Anyone used this more then once, how often do they come back etc?
