    All these discount codes tell me is that many stores (beyond the 20% crowd) are inflating their prices on eBay, which matches up with what I've been seeing.

          Lol, why would you think that? Not everyone who offers a different opinion is out to attack you. Your social circles must be very toxic.

          • +4

            @PlagueistheCheap: I've cross referenced a lot of data. Obviously I'm not going to rip the entirety of staticICE, Amazon, eBay, Newegg and others, but even factoring in price fluctuations due to inventory, sales and rebates, as a rule of thumb, eBay prices are up for tech, which is a big chunk of what people buy from eBay.

            And if you're wondering why I'm anticipating being attacked, you've not ventured far on this website. XD

        • +2

          You haven't provided a single example of prices being inflated…

          • @p1 ama: Well bar Galax cards and the CA sale, RTX 2060 prices only dropped yesterday after being inflated by 7-15% compared to global prices since launch, and that's after using the best available discount codes.

            Maybe the wheel has turned here, but there's a reason why eBay is in the middle of an operational review.

    • +2

      I disagree.

      With site-wide sales, eBay fund the discount from their own pocket.

      With the 20% off selected sellers, the split is 15% off from the seller's pocket and 5% from eBay so participating sellers have the incentive to jack up their prices (and they often do).

      • This is the first time I've heard that breakdown. If the seller has to voluntarily give up 15% of the discount, I would never bother participating in these sales promos.

    • thanks, got one

  • Here we come again ..lol

    • +2

      How many times did you come today?

      • So far as I can remember, about three time?

        • +1

          Max four, so you're all good.

          • @Banj0: Maybe thats why eBay set a limit of 4.
            To prevent dehydration…

            • @systmworks: I thought it was blindness or something…but it's nice that eBay cares about customer health and wellbeing.

    • Phrasing!

  • At least a small improvement… Max discount is $100 now

  • meh

  • PANIC10 here we go

  • Does anyone have any experience with ordering stuff from US sellers on ebay and using USPS (US postal service)?

    Just wondering when I can expect the parcel. I am in metro sydney and have to travel overseas end of next week. I'm so worried I won't receive the package before i jet off. Does AusPost do the delivery or USPS? I am using "First-Class Package International Service".

    My latest update is:

    Your item departed a transfer airport in KINGSFORD SMITH, SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA on March 16, 2019 at 12:00 pm. The item is currently in transit to the destination.

    • +1

      Itll be Australia Post.
      Your parcel will still probably go through Chullora sorting centre yet. May get stuck there for a few days too.

      • Itll be Australia Post

        I saw a USPS van drive by my street last week. I was hoping they would deliver it.

        • USPS has vans in Oz?

          My USPS stuff always come with Aussie post. Once it's hit the airport, it usually clears customs and gets to me pretty quickly in Canberra.

          But just so there's a little uncertainty, every now and then it takes about a week or more from hitting Sydney airport to arrival in Canberra.

        • +1

          I think you are confusing USPS with UPS.

        • Think you mistook that for UPS.

    • With my experience, the online tracking is absolute shit. However, you did get first class service, so id expect that to be better than the regular service i got

      • With my experience, the online tracking is absolute shit

        I've read that tracking after it arrives in Sydney or Melbourne just goes dark for a few days until AusPost takes receipt of the item. It's a very expensive parcel so I am worried that some punk courier driver who contracts for AusPost will leave it on the doorstep of my unit's front door. When I get it delivered to my house, they leave it on the front porch. It's so annoying.

  • Does this code work if you're bidding on an auction?

    • +2


      • +1

        Also works if you "Make an Offer" on an item, as long as the offer is accepted and you pay before the code expires.

    • +1

      Yeah…just hit it myself on an auction I won.

      • Cool, thanks guys.

        So just bid as per normal and then put in the code during payment?

        • Yep!

  • +1

    me, yesterday:

    "I'm 1000% sure they're just doing this to keep fresh posts up on ozbargain. most basic of advertising tactics. while there are currently no rules against this on ozbargain, we should start thinking about these limits, or we'll soon get spammed every 12 hours with "new deals" which are just coupon refreshes"

    • +3

      Me, yesterday:

      A couple of thousand clicks originating from OzBargain is hardy a significant amount of traffic to site like eBay. To suggest they run these discounts to maintain OzBargain visibility is comical.

      I maintain my position.

      • just replied to that, in case you missed it. OzBargain isn't the only outlet promoting visibility.

        • That's right, you did, and no, I didn't.

    • -1

      Me, today:

      …we should start thinking about these limits…

      As my Aunt Ethel used to say (a) get out of my house, and (b) a deal is a deal is a deal.

  • Just curious will Ebay give us 15% off sitewide?

    • +2

      Yes, in just a little while, you'll see.


  • +3

    I've definitely benefited from the various eBay sales, be it 5% off, 10% off, or the less-common 12 or 15% off sales.
    And there are some amazing bargains to be had during the various 20% off specific store sales.
    If I need to buy something, I simply use shopbot.com.au or staticice.com.au for price comparison with eBay prices, and find the cheapest price. If that price is on eBay — great, I'll use eBay. If not, I don't.
    As for price-jacking, sure, there's plenty of that on eBay, but often the "after discount" price is still the cheapest available at the time.
    Whether online or in-store, the same principle applies, right? Namely, if you want to be sure you are getting the best price, you have to shop around.

    • +2

      Dost with the goss

  • +1

    Is anyone aware of whether you can apply the 10% discount code for an item which you have negotiated/offered a price on?

    For example, if I were to get a $400 item for $350 through offering, would I then be able to apply the code on top of that and get it for say $315?

    • +3

      Yes. That's how it works.

      • +3

        Yes…I have done this in the past.

        …provided the seller responds before the code expires.

    • +1

      In this case, the best thing is to suggest your offer to the seller via eBay's messaging system, rather than the "best offer" button, due to the limited time window for the 10% off. Then the seller can click the "send an offer" button, which is usually somewhere on the "reply to message" page.

    • +1

      A good way to maximise them accepting your offer i reckon is to check the history of how much the item has been sold for. If theyve been sold for what is listed cheaper, mention that to the seller

      • Interesting, how is one able to check the history of a product's sale prices?

        • +1

          If you go onto the item's page, there should be something that says "X sold" in red, right above the "Buy It Now" button, X being a number, if you click on it, it should show the history

    These codes NEVER work for me.

    I always get “this code cannot be used at this time”. I can’t remember the exact wording, but it happens to me every time.
    I google searched this error, I do see a few entries relating to what I’m experiencing with eBay. But I tried all their suggested fixes, to no avail.

    Anyone else have a similar situation, and can give me some suggestions how to fix this?

    • Sorry, I can't help with the why's or how's, but jump on to eBay CS webchat, get them to confirm your eligibility and then try checking out while you've still got the chat open. When the code won't apply, ask them if they'll manually refund you the discounted amount if you check out straight away and it doesn't work.

      They should be will and able to do that - I've had immediate refunds from them a couple of times. Sometimes it's been a refund to my PayPal balance, other times it's been a voucher for the amount in question.

      • Thanks @dm01. I will definitely give that a try next time.
        So frustrating to be missing out on bargains.

        • Did you change your registration address to any other country or chose a different country on app?

  • same code last year

  • not enough time, needs to run at least for 3 days

    • +1

      there will be another one tomorrow & the day after. l0l-

  • How come these codes only last for half a day? What they planning?
