I'm sorry if this has already been posted, or if it is not the right place to put it. I remember seeing some threads when they stopped accepting ebay gift cards for other gift card purchases, so wanted to give everyone on SD a heads up.
Starting October 1, 2016, eBay Bucks are no longer earned on any gift card purchases, both physical and digital. Consult the eBay Bucks tab for the new terms and conditions.
Effective Jan. 1, 2017, eBay Bucks can no longer be redeemed to buy eBay gift cards.
