[Targeted] 8% back in Ebay bucks


Ebay is offering a targeted promo for 8% back in Ebay bucks through Jul 31, 2019 11:59 PM on all qualifying items (up to $100 back) with no minimum purchase requirement. If you haven’t yet maxed it out this quarter, this would stack with Discover for 5% back on PayPal transactions (up to $1500 — see this post for a link to activate).

Quick Thoughts

As usual, this excludes categories like gift cards, bullion / paper money, real estate, etc. You should check the exclusions before you buy.

That said, these promos can be useful if you find a deal you’re considering for purchase anyway and for the purchase of things that are rarely discounted (like postage stamps). Sometimes I’ll find items listed in the “wrong” categories that would ordinarily be excluded but keep in mind that items are excluded by category rather than by item type. If you’re further able to stack with 5% back via Discover and perhaps a shopping portal, this could be a very solid deal indeed.

This offer is of course targeted and you’ll have to activate it prior to purchase. I believe that currently-issued eBay bucks expire soon, so this may also be a good way to stack your current bucks with the new promo (assuming that they still stack that way — in the past, I was able to use eBay bucks and earn an increased percentage back like this).
