10% off Sitewide - eBay/PayPal Gift Cards, Officeworks/Target & Auto Parts (Min Spend £20, Max Discount £50) @ eBay UK

2010
POWPOW10

Happy New Year Ozbargain! Last deal from me for 2018.

Minimum spend A$36.08, maximum discount A$90.20.

Tested and working on gift cards -

All other items - find the item on eBay.com.au and change the .com.au to .co.uk.

10% off also applies for Officeworks, Target and Fantastic Furniture. Postage will need to be paid as there is no C&C option for eBay UK.

10% off for auto parts which are usually excluded from eBay AU sitewide sales.

Note - no GST is charged of the purchased item is from an Australian seller.


How it works -

Option 1:

Find what you want on eBay.com.au then change the URL at the start to eBay.co.uk for easy purchasing.

If above doesn't work then try this.

Option 2:

Considering what happened in the last deal, the country switch doesn't seem to work anymore, so you will most likely have to make a new account at eBay UK to take advantage of this offer.

Add random UK address and use AU mobile to confirm account via SMS then add AU address as preferred/Primary Delivery Addresss .

Tip : Use Dummy email by using existing email to register at eBay UK without creating new email id.

Your email: [email protected]
Dummy email : [email protected] ( just try any combination starts with +) This works with Gmail and Hotmail. Haven't tried with other email services so do check before you buy.

You will receive email on your original email id

If you get the error on checkout - "To buy a gift card, you need a US eBay and PayPal account." - make sure your primary address is set to your Australian one.

    good job Chibot

  •  

    Same like last time

    "We're sorry.
    Looks like this action is not supported. Please return and report this error so that we can support it in the future. (invalid client_ID or redirect_uri)"

    Dam why is my paypal account cursed?!!

  •  

    Tested and bought $800 worth.
    Worked this time.
    Didn't work last time after trying new eBay account, new Paypal, UK registered addressed, AU postal and return addresses.
    Now to see how long before getting the gift cards through email.

    •  

      What you did this time differently then?

      •  

        Absolutely nothing.
        Last time just won't work.
        Kept greying out Paypal payment method.

          I tried continuously for like 2 hours for the 15%, almost killed my PC. I must be really cursed..

  •  

    Used percent5 for a car part yesterday evening and this 10% comes along specifically for car parts! I call conspiracy!

    •  

      I call it bad luck, like my PayPal acc, blocked for the last 2 sales of gc, other normal stuff are fine.. No idea why, even PayPal customer support couldn't help…

  •  

    Didn't try option 1 but option 2 worked fine - thanks OP!

        But you got to admit. Its the best time to buy random stuff when plastered.

        •  

          Tell me about it - bought a bunch of vouchers and nothing to buy lol

          With a 3 year expiry though I'm sure something worthwhile will come along.

  •  

    Can anyone tell me, after I buy the gift card and buy something on ebay. Where do I put the redemption code from the ebay gift card? I know this is probably a simple answer, just would like to know.

    •  

      Right at the end of the check before "Confirm and pay".

      You have:

      Gift cards, vouchers, coupons

      Enter code:
      Apply

      •  

        thanks, and sorry for being dumb

  •  

    Do they ever restock woolies?
    (Also end of this promo and number of uses?)

    Anyone knows that if these ebay gift cards link to the new ebay uk account or I can use them from my primary AU account?

    • +1 vote

      Once you get the gift card. You can use it on your AU ebay account.

      They are not linked to any account

    •  

      cheers guys

    Can use on any ebay account

  •  

    Can you stack eBay gift cards with an eBay promo code? For example, can I apply a promo code for 10% off and use discounted eBay gift cards to pay?

    • +1 vote

      Yes. Did just that when videopro had 20% off. I piled on 5x $200 discounted ebay giftcards to pay on top.

    •  

      Yes

    •  

      Yes but only one promo code and upto 7 gift cards in one transaction

      •  

        Not up to 7 gift cards.

        From my first hand experience, it should be up to $1500, not the number of gift cards. I bought iPhone and iPad Pro using gift cards.

        •  

          This is correct. Any number of gift cards up to a value of 1500$

  •  

    With Domayne deal and previous eBay GC deal, I already maxed out my card limit

      Sorry mate. Please don't tell your partner that I posted these deals.

    paypal sent me a message said the transaction is suspicious.

      Whoops. They are on to you. 👀

  •  

    I am having issues making the payment on Kogan gift card. 10% code works, but I am not able to check out using PayPal. Instead, I tried to check out using the credit card payment option. The order goes through, but only to receive an email after 5 mins saying "Action required: Your payment needs to be resent". Tried with two different cards, same result. Anyone else having this issue?

  •  

    I am getting this error at checkout

    Sorry, we can't process your payment. Here are your options:

    Use a different credit or debit card.
    Pay with a PayPal account.
    

    Got same error last time as well. Used paypla credit/debit card option but same.

    Help pls

    •  

      Ues ur au Paypal

    •  

      Contact paypal - they may have placed a temporary block on your account - it's their anti fraud system. Alternatively try updating your post from address to the same as your delivery address and try again.

    •  

      Me too for last two times.. First time It went through, but I went and change the card, it logged me out and won't let me back in again since… Just bad luck sometimes.. Even PayPal support can't do much

    •  

      Yep i’m stuck on this step. Rechecked all the steps still no go. Tried 2 different CC’s instead of paypal, nope. Cursed :(

    •  

      thank you all for suggestions but
      having hard luck :(
      Tried different combinations..created new paypal account but same error.
      Gave up now :(

      wait for discounts on ebay au..

  •  

    Im getting a "the item could not added to the cart" msg.
    I assume its because i bought it from the last discoubt about a week or two ago

    •  

      als othe changing from com.au to co.uk doesnt work,
      yet the original listing comes up, all the other items seem to not

      but I have a two week old UK account, and not a new one

    •  

      Same error here but yeah I bought from the 15% off deal on my 4 accounts. 2 of them got refunded and yet I still can't order on them this time around :/

  •  

    ebay UK has deals way more frequently than AU. I'm jealous.

    •  

      UK/US both usually do them monthly. AU is almost weekly.

      •  

        I'm talking about sitewide, not the selected sellers thing.

        15% off is extremely rare on AU and it only lasts a few hours.

        •  

          They tend to have lower caps though. Ours are better for the more expensive purchases (usually around $300aud)

  • +2 votes

    They need to give us another one here…kickstart the year with 15% off

  •  

    be careful when you get refund to gift card. the balance can be wrong. i would stay away from using gift card. lot of troubles asking them to adjust the balance.

    •  

      Have you got some more details in this?

      •  

        I've a good, (sort of), refund experience with eBay gift card payment. Once, I returned an item through eBay Plus, i.e. with return mail-in label and ParcelPoint collection confirmation, but the seller don't respond or refund my payment. I contact eBay Plus through chat, once they confirmed I have returned the item through ParcelPoint, they refunded all my payment in full as bank payment, even I used discounted eBay gift card as payment.

        •  

          Wouldn't that be even better that you can cash out all your gc?

    •  

      Haven't had an issue. Typically if you stacked with a discount coupon you only get the amount you paid back, also if it was a split payment, then it's apportioned accordingly. So you may find some was refunded back to your CC or PayPal balance.

  •  

    I'm sploied with 15% is the minimum 😑

  •  

    I'm waiting for a AUS 10% or 15% deal now…. so can use all my stockpiled gift cards… maybe PNEW10 tomorrow!!

    •  

      Maybe change from "P" tomorrow?

  •  

    I still don't understand this:

    Have anyone ever encountered some untouched cards gift card going to zero balance after a while? $300 worth of cards I purchased in September are showing nil balance now. I traced through my pay-pal activities several times to find a hint that I spent them because I want to believe that there is no one out there running some S/W to fish unused gift cards. But I could not find any trace of those cards and that gives me chills. :( I have contacted pay-pal now and bought several $2 garbages with each card to link the gift cards I purchased recently with my ebay account.

    •  

      Did you contact PayPal or eBay re this?
      I'm going to run a full audit on my 20 giftcards now. Got me worried.

      •  

        I taked to ebay. They have asked me to contact paypal though ebay (contact seller). I did that and waiting.

        •  

          Keep me posted. Got a full audit of my GC planned. Unfortunately had a large refund also because seller cancelled due to apparently goods were stolen out of his truck… apparently so…

    •  

      You meant your gc balances just mysteriously disappeared? Surely? So what did you spend $2 for? Physical cards to link the balances?

      •  

        Yes. I purchased $2000 worh of the GCs with previous 10% deal in September. Used up $1700 of them and I make notes on which card and how much was consumed. Then I purchased another $1800 worth of cards with last UK 15% deal. When I decided purchase something yesterday, I tried to use the old GCs and found nil balance on them. Scared and assuming someone took the gcs by assuming the 13 digit number ( only last 6 digits change between batches) , I tried to link all the 10 cards ($1800) with my ebay. The only way I could find to link is to buy something using those gift cards. So, I bought 10 $1-$2 items and linked all to my account.

        •  

          Doesn't it forfeit the unused amount on purchases? That is if you buy something $50 on a $100 gc, you lose the rest?

          •  

            @BargainKen: Nop. The balance still stays on the card. But, you can not use the balance on a different ebay account. It is locked to the first account.

            •  

              @amazonaddict: What would happen if you cancel the orders and get refund on them>?

        •  

          How would someone have acces to your code?

          •  

            @DisabledUser194964: just by random trying I guess? only the last 6 of the 13 digits is different

          •  

            @DisabledUser194964: I have no clue. I was actually worried if someone wrote a bot that fishes for GCs. Ebay's check balance interface locks itself after few attempts, but the apply balance at checkout page allows as many attempts as you want. A bot that could run million numbers on that can easily fish gift cards. (First 6/7 numbers are same among batches). Since it seemed easy, I looked in the internet to see if anything like this have ever happened. Nothing of that sort. Now, I've asked here and it doesn't seem like anyone had issues as well. So, I could just be paranoid.

            So, options are

            1. I have used them. (Ebay history & Paypal activity don't say so)
            2. I have gifted / sold them. (Never happened unless I have split personality disorder)
            3. Paypal revoked them. (Possible?)
            4. Someone had access to my email/ notes. (Possible. If so, this $300 should be the least of my worries)

            Hope paypal can reveal some answers.

    Is there a limit of gift cards to be used?

  • +1 vote

    You can actually buy $1000 and get $100 discount.
    Sadly you cannot buy more on 1 account as the seller has limited 5 items for every 10 days.

    They don't enforce the "1 coupon per account" in their T&C.
    So you can do the following:
    1st Transaction: Buy 4x $200 and get $80 discount
    2nd Transaction: Buy 1x $200 and get $20 discount

    •  

      Did exactly this last time.

  •  

    Paypal keeps greying out and prompts to input card details instead…anyone having the same issues?

  •  

    Haha signed up with the wrong email, which was already taken. What a start to the new year losing $90

    •  

      what exactly happened??

      •  

        bought a $100 gc but it got sent to the wrong email. Tried to sign up with the incorrect email but it's already taken. Already contacted seller but I doubt they'll do much (my stupidity anyway).

        •  

          Looks like someone scored a free gift card then?

        •  

          cancel and refund my friend. I almost made the similar mistake as I was signing up with Ebay UK with fake email address that I won't be able to access. I realised it just before final confirmation and started over with creating new email address and ordered 5 X $100.

          •  

            @volkauno: I tried man, but with these gc once you check out there's no way to cancel. The plan was to get the $200 gc so it could have been worse

        •  

          Call paypal now. It will be transferred to a US operator at this time so you'll be fine

    •  

      Any luck? Found out I'm in a similar situation. However i updated my email address before the order but the order still got sent to the old incorrect email

      Funny thing is I received the order confirmation correctly but the confirmation said the order would be sent to the wrong address

  •  

    look like a lot of people have PayPal check out problem,I tried my second PayPal last time, it works. But this time none of them work.I just give up.

  •  

    "The seller only allows buyers to purchase 5 items every 10 days." Looks like it's time for UK account version 2.0 :). And happy new year everyone!

  •  

    Sweet, thanks OP, got $400 worth.

  •  

    One or two redemtion per account?

    •  

      You can do two. Like so as mentioned above.

      One set of 4x $200
      Second set 1x $200

  •  

    got 5 successfully and received the GC in 1 hr. Cheers all!

  •  

    The code can't be applied to your order?

  •  

    paypal payment issue is quite annoying. does anyone know how to avoid the issue?

    need more WW GC supply :(
