    So no one on ozbargain .. lol

    • what are you talking about?
      Me, Myself, Irene, Bob, & John are all new users…

      • hehehehe

      • All of my friends who have the same email as me except with '+1', '+2', '+3' etc before '@gmail.com' haven't made a purchase all year!

        That's against the T&Cs.
        Basically theft.

        • Taking some from thief is a theft?

        • recently, Ebay sent out $10 vouchers for the VR promotion once you completed the survey. For the people who were saving them up before the due date (31st dec) ebay retracted all the email with the voucher code from your inboxes. Now thats dodgy! now i will use all the ebay vouchers i receive as soon as i get them.

        • @kza2610: When did you get that voucher? I am still waiting for mine. Dropped them an email but no response.

        • @rvsure: i cant remember, as the email was retracted, maybe about start November? I was so sure they sent it to my normal email inbox as well and it was gone too.

        • @rvsure: i managed to get my code back from live chat, and the person said it was linked to my account. others have tried livechat + email but got no help. maybe you can try livechat too?

        • @kza2610: Thanks mate. Will give it a try.

        • I prefer to think of it as selective winning.

        • @kza2610:

          Oh I see, I have been looking for that email like a crazy all over my email and eBay inbox and have been cursing myself thinking that I have deleted it by mistake. I have contacted eBay via twitter and they responded that they will get back to me but I wonder if they will…

        • @RockMeLoOn: i made a forum post about it because i thought i was going nuts too.. : https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/279344

          hope you had better luck than the other guy. or that they reply you before it 'expires' !

        • @kza2610: it's not technically possible to retract an email

        • @Agret: i thought so too, but i am pretty sure they sent a copy to my gmail inbox (because i would once in a while click through it to see expiry date) but did an email search and it was gone.

        • @kza2610:
          they deleted it from your gmail? Did you give them your password?
          I knew eBay was evil, but did not think they were capable of hacking everyones email servers.

        • @manic: obviously not, but i get an email sent to my gmail account when ebay sends me messages, because i dont log in ebay everyday and wouldnt think to check my message inbox without notification. I am fairly sure other people have got it sent to their own emails and now cant find it either.

        • @kza2610:
          There is no mechanism for retraction in the email standard. It just does not work that way.
          Email predates the internet, back to the days of store-and-forward.

          Do you think Gmail provides some sort of back door? There is something like that in Exchange/outlook, but only for local mail of course.

          SMTP is very simple - you can read the RFC.

          Who knows what happened to your email - maybe it has gone to live with your odd socks? But I would not blame ebay for stealing my socks.

        • @kza2610:

          Can't find the notification email in your private (gmail/hotmail/yahoo/etc) inbox, or

          Can't find the eBay message on eBay?

      • It seems like they are anticipating people doing this and may have some sort of protection against it

        From T&C's "This offer may only be redeemed once per person. You cannot submit multiple email addresses, create multiple eBay.com.au accounts or use other any other methods in order to obtain more than one voucher redemption code."

  • Looks like no minimum spend too!

  • Vouchers emailed Christmas Eve.

    Note: The voucher must be redeemed before 23rd of December

    Huh

    • Sorry, didn't read the T&C correctly…

      • I'm not sure you are entirely wrong, they have conflicting information. From T&C

        Eligible participants will be emailed a voucher redemption code by 23 December 2016. The voucher will entitle the recipient to $10 off the purchase price for one transaction on eBay.com.au.

        Not sure how that is Christmas eve…

        • In a galaxy far, far away… It is Christmas Eve when it is still 23rd Dec here

    • I am so confused

  • Not sure why people are reporting as targeted. Another deal massively overlooked was the last one https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/275716

    • Damn. How did I miss this?!

      • That was a great deal and as usual it didnt get too many positives to be on first page. People were busy discussing .25% rate increase on gift cards or other average deals as they were on first page and most of audience looks at that only.

  • Geeze…..how about a voucher that says "thank you to our loyal customers who have spent $1000's with us in the last year"?

    • Geeze…if you spend $1000 , why do you need voucher worth $10 that is 1% of your spending…

    • I actually agree. They are rewarding the wrong customers entirely. Anyway, this offer is simply open to abuse by hit and runners. It won't generate eBay any ongoing business, and will cost in the short term with no long term benefit. They really need to sweeten up the people who have been their bread and butter for a long time, the long term buyers, and secondly the long term sellers (which it's clear they no longer give an iota about in favour of big business). Ultimately, without buyers eBay is a non entity. If Amazon comes to Australia eBay is screwed which ever way you look at it. The eBay margins just won't be viable.

      • They probably want to try and boost the numbers of "spending customers" as a KPI for the share holders.

        • Bingo! It is all about appearances.

          It looks good to say "We got 250,000 new sign-up's this quarter. So in summary dear shareholders, we now have 75 million loyal customers throughout Australia" lol

        • @Charity: not to mention the stat on how much $ worth of sales were conducted through the holiday shopping period

  • looks like i need to start creating more dummy accounts on ebay

    • You da real MVP

    • You cannot submit multiple email addresses, create multiple eBay.com.au accounts or use other any other methods in order to obtain more than one voucher redemption code.

      How do they check this? Is it based on your name/delivery address? Or your PayPal account?

      • How do they check this?

        They start by eliminating all applications with an HTTP referer(sic) of ozbargain.

  • So do we need to create an ebay account right now for the email address entered? Or do we just enter the email address into the promo page then create the ebay account after receiving the code from ebay?

  • Checked my wife's account, got 20% off with max discount $50 instead.

  • How do people pay for things using a second account? I wouldn't think it would be sensible to link to the same PayPal as your primary account.

    Or do you not link to a PayPal account at all? Pay by Credit Card? Would that have to be in the same name as the account holder?

    Bank Deposit?

    • I have multiple PP accounts. Each using a different bank account or card. I also have multiple $2/$0 SIMs which can be used for the verification when the PP automatic verification requires more info.

      For example most bank accounts come with a Visa/Mastercard Debit card and a "Savings Account". With this one bank account you can create two PP accounts by using the Debit card for one and the savings account as the source for the other.

      I simply ensure that the bank accounts I sign up to, do not have any monthly account fess or anything like that. And I usually only leave $100 or so in each account, unless I know I'm going to use them for a larger purchase.

      Then you also need to have multiple email addresses which can be used for all of your accounts. I use my own domain and have a catch all default address pointing to a mailbox. That way I can give out email addresses without giving out my actual mailbox address. This way you have an unlimited amount of email addresses which you can "create" instantly for any deals you may require.

      I also use a formatting syntax in the "created" email so I know why it was created. For example, my groupon email addresses are [email protected] and [email protected] also can use these type of addresses for competitions etc. It also helps when someone's customer database is leaked online and you start receiving more spam than usual. You can check to see which email/alias it was sent to and then null route that address.

      Anyway, cant give any all my secrets.

  • Ive made purchases but still chucked in my email anyway. Hopefully I get lucky

  • anyone getting limitexceeded when trying to signup?

  • When does the voucher expires? The T&C are a bit conflicting?

  • Link doesn't work anymore, anyone having the same issue
    I'm on my phone it bring up the eBay app then redirects to a webpage then it says link no longner available or something on that lone

  • Do I have to make new account or I can just enter new email on the deals page?

  • I'm getting this message

    ×Please confirm that you are a real person and not a robot.

    No captcha is displayed on the page though

    • Try clearing your browser cache and try again. I had problems with Chrome, but worked on FF and IE.

      Also sometimes those captcha things don't play nice with ad blockers.

  • get 20% off voucher as well….

  • Dammn… my wife account should get the $20% off voucher….

    I want to get it but I don't want my wife know what I purchase… lol…

  • Did anyone get one yet?

  • I haven't received anything yet

  • So 10,000 new accounts, purchasing $10.01 to $11. Hmmm
    Search by free post and price range, and buy everything!!! Go

  • Wow eBay are pissed - they must really be cracking down on new accounts somehow. I created a new one:

    Hello XXXX,
    Your eBay account was suspended because recent account activity has raised serious security concerns. We've taken this precaution to protect our members while we make sure that the activity doesn't cause harm — however unintentionally — to the eBay Community.

    You won't be able to use eBay in any way. This includes using another existing account or registering a new account.

    Any outstanding selling fees are due immediately, and any amounts that you haven't previously disputed will be charged to the billing method currently on file.
    Thanks,
    eBay

    • I hope you didn't link any details such as paypal account,home address or phone numbers that you use on your main account (If you have one), since that account will also be getting suspended soon… Also, don't use the IP address you used to create that account anymore…
