I'm not able to for some reason and wondered if we can no longer roll our Ebay gift cards.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Confirmed: eBay Gift Card dividend is now dead.

"We can't apply this code to your order." The code works on anything else but Ebay gift cards.

I just received the gc code for my purchase before, so all good there.

Is there anything different about the code you're trying to apply?

Was it bought somewhere other than eBay?

Well thank goodness we can still roll. I wonder what the deal is with my code then. I had purchased a Target 100.00 gift card from Ebay during one of their promos or Ebay bucks deals. It came today so I purchased a Ebay e-delivery card from Target. That's the digital code I was trying to use.

Try again in a few hours/tomorrow. eBay codes can act strange for the first 4 hours after purchase/delivery.

I'll do that. I thought that too though so thought I'd try it on another item and it worked so that's why I was thinking maybe we can't roll anymore but since you were able to buy one, thank goodness that's not it.

I'll try it again later like you said. Thanks.

Paypal is a terrible company, I fully agree.

I just tried the same with a few accounts. These ebay codes were used previously on the same accounts (matched). I can't buy ebay gift card with ebay gift card. I think there is definitely some sort of security limits being put in.

I can buy non-eBay GCs and any other items with eBay GC, but if you check out with an eBay GC in the order it won't apply any codes. This is definitely new.

I think you may be right with this.

It worked for me the other day but it's not working today. I'm now getting "We can't apply this code to your order." when the item is an ebay gc.

That... sucks. Another thing killed Frown

Darn, I was hoping I was wrong. Wow, so we won't get Ebay Bucks or be able to roll when purchasing Ebay gift cards. All the monetary benefit extras are slowly all going away.Frown
