I received an email from eBay at 8:17AM, notifying me of the latest eBay Bucks promotion. The Promotion starts at 8:00AM PT on August 4, 2015, and ends at 11:59PM PT on August 5, 2015. During the promotion you earn 4x in eBay Bucks with translates into 8% savings on every qualifying single item of $100 or more.
These offers are targeted and you need to receive the email in order to qualify. I don’t get these too often though, so maybe you’re in luck too.
Keep in mind that you don’t earn eBay Bucks when buying eBay gift cards, so the offer should be used to purchase other merchant’s gift cards that can be sold for a profit. You can earn 1.2% cash back through TopCashBack as well on ebay purchases. If you don’t have a TopCashBack account, you can use my Tell-A-Friend link and we’ll both earn an extra $10. Also you’ll earn points/miles if you use your favorite credit card, or just use the eBay gift cards you’ve already purchased.
There’s also an offer going on now where you can buy a $100 eBay Gift Card and get a Free $5 eBay Card.
