More bad news from eBay Bucks. Starting on January 1, 2017 some new eBay Bucks changes will be taking effect. Ebay says in the email that they’re making the program more flexible and beneficial for all of their loyalty members, but they sure aren’t.
Here is a list of the upcoming changes and new benefits:
- Base earnings are changing from 2% to 1%, now with more ways than ever to earn eBay Bucks
- From car parts to copiers & you can now earn rewards for shopping in the Parts & Accessories and Business & Industrial* categories
- Earn Bucks when you sell. We’ll be adding occasional promotions so you can also get rewarded when your items sell on eBay
- No more $5 minimum earn restrictions for redeeming—now you’ll receive your rewards, no matter the amount
- Sign up for promotional emails and get invites for special bonus offers. For full terms and conditions of the program, click here.
Sincerely, The eBay Bucks team
The email was shamelessly titled “Announcing a better, more flexible eBay Bucks”.
Hopefully they’ll offer better targeted eBay Bucks offers once the earning rates is cut in half.
