I never understood the legality of this. Aren't they required by law to accept their gift cards for purchases without arbitrary limits? I've never heard of Staples, Amazon, Walmart, Target, or any other retailer placing limits on redeeming their gift cards, either in-store or online.

Not only do they have hidden limits, once you hit them it will just give you a generic error so you have no idea that you hit a hidden limit. Not only that but i've had so many times where it can't process my gift card, then I use it on another paypal account and it works fine. They deserved to be sued into the ground for their gift card fraud!

And we will all get 5 cents from the class action lawsuit in about 15 years.

This is BS. I have been saving up my eBay gift cards to buy a $2000 OLED TV and now I can only use $1000 in a transaction?

The $1000 limit is not new, that has been around awhile.

you can combine 1k ebay gift cards on top of eBay bucks. Did that earlier to buy my svs pb13 ultra. Now my gift cards and rolling days are over, I'm done with eBay

Guess they are getting hit hard with ebay buck rollers. Time to invest in ebay stealth or just stop rolling. Thanks for the heads up. No clue how you can tie a giftcard to an account then put limits on them legally. Some lawyer should make out eventually if they were smart. Between every other listing being alibaba junk, treating sellers like dirt, and now this makes ebay less and less worth while with every update.

yeah, I'm going to dump all my gift cards into businesses and wave bye to ebay. I've made more legitimate large purchases through ebay because of that easy $5 I would make every couple of weeks. bought a couple computer parts, and some other erroneous things. time to look elsewhere. I should also stoo using PayPal now that visa checkout is a thing

I've never purchased bullion, but I think that I can manage with $2K spend per 60 days on each account.

I have never heard of a dollar limit on gift card - almost every retailer has a limit on the number of gift cards they will accept in one online transaction and many have an in store limit. Example Gander Mountain limits you to seven gift cards in-store per one transaction and online I believe it is less.
