Ebay Bucks 8% or 10% when you shop the App YMMV

+26 Deal Score
13,178 Views
Ebay has Ebay Bucks, probably last of the quarter!

https://www.ebay.com/

IMPORTANT: I just browsed for the items and added them to my cart using the laptop, but then checked out via the app. It was only showing 8% in the app, this made me nervous so I bought one item only of what was in my cart (an item over $50) it said only 8% the whole way an including after checking out on my phone. HOWEVER, it worked at 10% I went back and checked my "Bucks" Activity, and it shows an earn of 10% of the value.
TLDR: The app shows the wrong amount but works.

Info:

Bonus Offer! - Earn 10% eBay Bucks when you shop on the App, 8% everywhere else.

  • 8% in eBay Bucks on every Qualifying Purchase.
  • 10% in eBay Bucks on every Qualifying Purchase of $50 or more when you buy within the latest version of the eBay Mobile App.

The Promotion starts at 5:00AM PT on September 28, 2017, and ends at 11:59PM PT on September 29, 2017 (the "Promotion Period"). Extra eBay Bucks can only be earned on every single item purchased that meets the minimum purchase requirement specified in the offer (a "Qualifying Purchase" or "Qualifying Parts & Accessories Purchase"). Promotion is valid on multiple Qualifying Purchases made within the Promotion Period.

So, I just have to pay on the app right? I don't have to place bid on the app?

Yes, Correct, it seems to be working that way for me. I Did 3-4 so far; Not auction type, only Buy it now type but I can't see why it would be any different.

Do we see the 10% ebay bucks in the app before going through with the purchase?

Thank you.

It's on the front page once you open the app, I just had to click activate as usual.

Thanks and I've activated the offer but my question was whether we can see how much ebay bucks we make on the ebay app itself?

On my desktop browser, I can see the amount before I place the order.

Sorry, misread your question. I'm on the android app but if you scroll down on the listing to the "shipping,returns,payments" section, the very last thing says ebay bucks you'll earn with the purchase.

Do not be so positive about it? It happened to me twice now that it showed that you earned an amount at 8% when you checked out. However, it was recorded at 1% my buck activity. I called eBay a few days ago about it. Today, I purchased a 300$ projector, it showed I earned 24$ eBay bucks. You know what, it is 3$ when I checked my earned bucks. I will need to call eBay again. What a hassel!

On my android app it's just on the first screen when you open the app. It says earn 10% when purchased through the app and 8% everywhere else. I guess computer is everywhere else? Not sure what other way you can shop on eBay

Now to find something to buy. I am in need of an m.2 SSD

All his seller feedback is for more than a year ago, likely a hacked account "Send the payment to a different address..." blah blah blah

The rule is, if it seems too good to be true on eBay, it ALWAYS is.
