Thread Details

I just tried to combine some of my eBay gift certificates today and apply them to one gift card, and I get the message

"We can't apply this code to your order."

Seems like eBay stopped the ability of rolling gift cards, which makes it a very sad day Mad

If I'm doing something wrong or someone figures out a way to do it, let me know!

You can still:
purchase ebay gc with ebay bucks
purchase 3rd party gc (home depot, lowes, etc) with ebay gc

You cannot:
purchase ebay gc with ebay gc

how about if you buy GameStop cards? you can always turn those Ebay cards in to Amazon, Netflix, and EVEN back in to Ebay cards there.. If you can buy a best buy card, you can probably convert that back in to a Ebay card too..

I think they are just trying to stop the "ease" of rolling..

last I checked you could buy a target and apply your gc. You cannot have an eBay Gift Card in the same order or by itself.
