eBay $5 off coupon, No Minimum Purchase, possibly on "inactive accounts" YMMV

+14 Deal Score
11,015 Views
This is very YMMV. I saw this when I logged into two of my least used eBay accounts. These accounts have been inactive for at least 6 months, so it's possibly eBay enticing you to return.

Coupon code is MYFIVE but it can't be used unless your account is specifically targeted. Expires 9/27.

Sorry to get off topic, but just how many Ebay accounts can somebody legitimately own?

Ebay is so corrupt and over-the-line greedy nowadays, I'm happy if people are able to benefit by using multiple accounts. Just know that you need to change a lot of your info if you don't want to get identified.

eBay does not specify a limit to the number of accounts you can have. As long as you are not attempting to cheat their system (e.g. open a new account to hide your low ratings), you can own multiple accounts with the same info and link to the same PayPal account. I buy and sell on separate accounts with no issues.

+1 to the OP. I too got this coupon on an inactive account.

Don't have it. Hope the 15% 20% site-wide off or cash back will come back again.

With the end of the quarter coming up here soon, I can only imagine we will see a 15 or 20% off sight wide coupon coming up shortly.

There's been a 20% going for the last few days. Ends in just a little over 2 hours. It may have been targeted.

This Coupon is a 20% discount valid from 6:00 AM PT on September 10, 2018 until 11:59 PM PT on September 14, 2018. Discount applies to the purchase price (excluding shipping, handling, and taxes) of an eligible item(s) of $25 or more on ebay.com. Eligible items are items(s) purchased from select sellers. The discount will be applied to eligible item(s) only and will be capped at a value of $50. Eligible items exclude warranties and protection plans. See full terms and conditions at: https://www.ebay.com/rpp/66943

Yes, you are correct however that is only from a list of select sellers, there should be another one coming up that is (mostly) site wide

I have over a hundred. Some have gotten shut down, most are still working, I get promo codes very often like this. They've changed their system now to make it harder to get that many accounts but I've created so many from way back.
