How do I set up a SlickDeals alert/search to ONLY show "eBay gift cards"?

Friendly greetings!

I'm having difficulties setting up a SlickDeals alert/search to ONLY show "eBay gift cards". That is, not just any gift cards that are available on eBay, but cards that can be used to buy stuff on eBay, like these ones: http://www.ebay.com/rpp/gift-card...Gift-Cards


Right now, even if I setup a search limiting to "post title", it brings up many other matches, like Toys R Us gift cards that can be bought on eBay. I've tried to use other criteria but haven't found something really focused yet. I thought putting "ebay gift card" as a Boolean phrase would be recognized, but it seems not to be.


Here's what I have so far: http://slickdeals.net/newsearch.php?src=SearchBarV2&q=%22ebay+gift+card%22&pp=20&sort=newest&rating=4&previousdays=-1&forumid%5B%5D=30&forumid%5B%5D=9&forumid%5B%5D=25&forumid%5B%5D=38&forumid%5B%5D=54&forumid%5B%5D=10&searchin=title


Any suggestions?

Hi Torley,

Unfortunately that's a tough one. Usually it would be something like
Ebay GC|"Gift Cards" -ToysRUs -Target -BestBuy
but there are so many store gift cards that ebay sells, you are going to have to add a ton of - and even then will probably get a ton of false alerts. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. This is one alert that doesn't seem possible. Frown

You could try to search and see what the common ones are that get posted and add as you see them. It may help in the long run. But yeah that's a tough one.

Unfortunately this one doesn't weed out various false positives (gift cards for other merchants being sold on eBay) but I appreciate you taking a stab at it! Smilie
