Thread Details

Congrats slickdeals:

5% off no longer is applied when using a red card on Ebay gift cards.

Bad timing with the Staples deal.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Tried via phone browser and PC. None apply 5% off. But it seems as you can still purchase the gift cards with gift cards (for now at least). At least that doesnt make people stuck with Target gcs.

yup I too tried Frown doesn't work even while combining with other eligible items in cart. discount is applied only for eligible items. Guess they closed that loop completely Frown

I am afraid you are right. I just tried and added eBay with another item. The 5% only applied for the other item. 😔

Yep, deal killed. I called giftcardmall and got my codes. Put in all my orders for ebay gift cards and the orders went through okay. Not messing around with being stuck with so much target money.

damn, it was good while it lasted...good thing target GCs are still very useful and ebay GCs can occasionally be bought at a discount in some grocery stores
here [ebay.com] you can find the offers...currently kroger 4X times seems the best

Since Amazon just started that a couple of weeks ago, I doubt it.
