PSA: eBay Bucks successfully used on gift card purchase

+27 Deal Score
20,491 Views
I had a total of $185 in eBay bucks issued to me the other day. I was just able to use all of my eBay bucks by purchasing three Cabela's gift cards sold by Svm gift cards. ($100 card for $85). I bought 2-$100 cards and 1-$25 card. All of my eBay bucks were used on this purchase and I only paid $10 out of pocket. Not sure if it's a glitch or what since I thought they ended the whole paying with eBay bucks for gift cards. So maybe YMMV? Anyone else have similar luck? I didn't see any other posts about this issue but it should help out a lot of people if we can still use eBay bucks to buy gift cards on eBay. Good luck and let others know if you were successful or not.

There is nothing saying you cant redeem for gift cards.

You are confused about redeeming for EBAY gift cards.

Effective January 1, 2017, Rewards may not be redeemed for eBay Gift Cards within the Gift Cards & Coupon category;

i just tried to use my ebay gc on that exact purchase: "This code can't be applied to some of your items."

edit: just testing. never fail to let a potential temporary loophole go to waste. Wink

You guys are correct. You may use your eBay bucks on any gift card purchase other than an "eBay" gift card purchase. I just noticed in the Cabela's thread that some people were under the impression you couldn't use it on any gift card purchase (as was I). So hopefully this is helping some people that were confused.

Yesterday they had BP gas cards for $93 each. I tried to buy them with my eBay bucks and it failed, I tested it with other Gift Cards and they all failed to apply. Looks like it is working again, that is probably what OP was referring to.
