Ebay Gifted Me a $10 Coupon

I knew there were Ebay gift cards, but I didn't know there were coupons.  I was checking "My Ebay" just a bit ago and noticed I had a coupon for $10 goon on any purchase for $0.01 or more in which the seller uses PayPal.   Doesn't pretty much every seller use PayPal?
I thought it was too good to be true, but I had a card in my watchlist that was on sale for a little over ten bucks and I tried it out. I figured the worst that could happen was I'd get a card I wanted and had to pay $10.41 for it.  Plus, I had my wife's blessing to give it a go!  Now, that's a win-win!

 I cut & pasted in the redemption code, which I erased above because they are non-transferrable, and I'm now the proud owner of one of the more rare Karl Olson cards for only forty-one cents.

From everything I've read it seems like the seller gets paid in full and Ebay is the one out ten dollars.  Works for me.

I don't know if I was one of a few chosen to receive the coupon or it's Ebay's way of spreading holiday cheer to everyone, seeing as the expiration date is Christmas Day.

I thought I should share just in case there are others out there that might have the same coupon available to them.  I scrolled down on "My Ebay" page past the items I have ordered, but before the items I've sold, and it was located right there in the middle of the page.

Leave a comment with what you purchased if you had a coupon.  Could be a fun list to compile!

 Good luck!


  1. Hmmmm, I'm going to have to take a looksie... A dime for that oddball beauty, that's a deal worth bragging about!

  2. I had an offer saying that if I listed a sale under collectibles, then eBay would give me the $10 coupon. Sounds like you didn't even need to do that. Congratulations on picking up the Double Header!

    1. I had that offer presented to me just before Thanksgiving.
      It's too bad that this coupon doesn't sound like something that is available to everyone. Bummer.
