Ebags policy: no more combining gift cards


We’ve recently written a number of Quick Deals for various items at eBags.com (see: $109 for Bose QuietComfort 25 Noise-cancelling headphones; Tumi more than half off (some bags). One of the best ways to stack for savings at eBags has long been to use Amex Offers (or more recently Chase Offers or Chase Pay promotions) to buy multiple gift cards, later combining them via chat. Unfortunately, ebags has instituted a policy to no longer allow the combining of gift cards.

Some readers had reported during a recent deal that eBags chat support had refused to combine gift cards purchased with Amex Offers. However, as recently as December 5th a reader reported successfully combining gift cards purchased through the Chase Pay promo. Unfortunately, that too seems to have ended with this update to the ebags gift card policy (click here to see the entire policy):

  • eGift Cards and Printable Gift Cards cannot be combined in any manner on a single order.

Greg put that policy to the test this morning, and it seems it’s being enforced.

This is an unfortunate move by eBags, but something to be aware of if you are accustomed to buying multiple gift cards with the multitude of offers available at eBags throughout the year.
