    Maybe an idea to not post deals like this until it actually goes live, so you know if it's open to everyone. For preplanned 20% off deals etc that's fine but when you don't know the details it's like an eBay scam. Get people looking on the site then they find out there's no deal, some people will probably think I might just get it anyway.

    • Plenty of deals have [Targeted] in the title. It gives a heads up to watch for something they would otherwise miss. Especially with ebay, because you must be subscribed to their barrage of electronic junk mail to qualify. But 39 out of 40 emails contain nothing of interest. So you start deleting them without reading them. Many of these things expire early too. Better to know about it but not qualify, than qualify but miss out because you had no time to prepare.

        This did not have targeted in the title until after everybody started complaining about it not working, obviously. He released this deal without relevant details or confirmation. Targeted deals should not be allowed it's pointless. If you don't read your emails or check for different deals then you should relinquish your ozbargain card anyway.

          That's not what I meant though. I meant there are plenty of targeted deals posted here, so why should this deal be removed just because not everyone can access it - which often happens with ebay discounts.

  • +1

    Of course it’s targeted. Thanks EBAY

    Lol did it work for anyone?

    • Not me. WTF

    • Yes once, but failed about 8 times with four different errors, over about 2 hours of trying.
      Ebay officially sucks with all these bad experiences. Problem is Aliexpress is much worse nowadays with prices closer to DHGate, and too much light porn, and too much security on their doorstep and on payment. I've avoided for a year, now ebay if there's any alternative.

      Where can we buy direct from Asia, cheaply and with some customer respect?

      • +2

        Cheap and customer respect can't go together.

    Work for my 5 account it never used app login before
    Thanks OP

    Didn't work and I had already committed to buy

    Worked on 2/8 accounts. Thanks TA

  • I received a $5 coupon last Monday, therefore no surprise I didn't get this one.

  • +1

    didn't work on my two accounts. Has anyone actually received an email with the code? Ebay is acting a bit sneaky.

    • +2

      No email, but I never read them anyway because they're electronic junk mail - too many, and they always email me reminders about items I've looked at that were unsuitable - but those look just like the reminders ebay sends when auctions are close to ending. So it has the effect of causing me to ignore ALL their email.

      However it does show "Take AU $3.00 off this item" in the app, directly under the item title, price, and "Est. delivery."

      Edit: And on a computer I just clicked "My eBay" (at the top of any ebay page) and just below my username there's a "Vouchers" heading showing "AU $3 off your purchase."

  • It worked fine for me.

    More free marketing for eBay. Well done.

  • It works only for few. It Worked on mrs account. It was there in the gift card voucher section. So if you can't see it most likely you are not eligible for it. I was not obviously because i am regular shopper.

  • Worked on my rarely used account, thanks OP. Bought a wireless charger for $3.

  • why cant my iPhone let me access the page where I enter the coupon code work, only lets my do it on my computer. All other pages are working…

    • Same here :(

    • I had the same problem… I think something is wrong with their iPhone app. I was able to do it later with their Android app.

      I understand your reason for neg'ing the deal. After all you’re free to do as you please, even though I clearly stated I wasn’t sure if it was targeted. I'm quite certain anyone would have posted this had the T&Cs been available to them. It's never my intention to mislead in any of my posts.

      But don’t make it personal. What exactly do you mean by the last two words? Why the hate? I'd like a clear explanation why you feel the need to say 'Classic TA'. Put it out there for transparency, else your comment is nothing more than trolling, just like the members that upvote your comment.

        Rather than rushing to Ozbargain to gain upvotes, wait until the terms are clear and you won't waste hundreds of people's time.

          Does this apply to price errors as well?

    Same bullshit post as last time…remember APP5OFF post from TA about 3 months ago or so. He should learn from it.

    • +4

      Not sure what the problem is. There are plenty of [TARGETED] deals posted here, and/or others that get announced before they go live. If you mean this code doesn't exist/work, as per my own and a few others in the thread show, that's false.

      Even so, with the amount of deals he posts, surely the guy would deserve some slack to make a mistake now and then (if this post were a mistake, which it isn't).

      • +1

        This is more like "ebay hate" I think, than at TA. The poster's likely to cop it for ebay deals seemingly decaying to annoyance level.

    Did not work for me but why all the hate towards TA? He posted the deal and clearly stated it MAY be targeted and also noted the time the deal would be active. Negging because you're mad you didn't get the targeted deal and spent a couple of minutes putting a discount code in isn't fair. How many of TA's other posts have you taken advantage of? Thanks anyway TA, appreciate your efforts!

    Sucked in again by this waste of time deal

  • I think something is wrong with their iPhone app… same account, same product, not working on iPhone, but worked with Android.

    Another two hours wasted as targeted wasn't mentioned originally when I tried.
    Ebay you're a waste of effort?

      Wish? Is it still a thing?
      edit - Looks like that was a bad suggestion. Can't even view products without signing up.

      • I've bought a few things from WISH. I've been pleasantly surprised, my wife looked way better than I thought she would! :P

        • What'a WISH? Is it mainly women clothing? Website?

      • Usually find anything on Wish can be had cheaper from Aliexpress. Probably dropshipped from same place.

    • Two hours? Do you have 60 accounts? It takes litterlly 2 minutes to log into MyEbay to see if you're eligible (it will say so right on the landing page).

      • as targeted wasn't mentioned originally

        Targeted wasn't mentioned. And as the ebay App errors were not helpful, I kept trying multiple phones and App versions, trying to solve the problems.

        That took two hours. What do you do? Just give up at first generic error message? Or persist, to overcome IT problems.

        Not trying to be mean. It's just my early onset modern technology syndrome.

  • not working for me………….

  • Not working for me

  • Code also doesn't work for me. Can anyone confirm what the requirement is to get this to work or is it just random luck?

    • It's targeted. So if your account doesn't have the offer visible in your account section, then no offer is given.

      Targeted for account never login or purchase with APP only,it work for my 5 account.

      • I got the email for this code to my one of my account but i also can't enter the coupon section.

        ps. getting the email assume i am eligible?

        • if you are targeted,the offer will show on coupon section,no code required
          Try contact customer service,if you receive offer email.

            @coolim: Yeah i can see on the account that has got it - will need to speak to custom service i guess!

            update - this is what CS said "We have actually received similar reports about this and currently our Marketing and Technical team is working to have this sorted."

    • I have exactly the same problem … every time I click to try and enter the code it won't go to the next screen to enter the code - frustrating!!

    Didn’t work for me.

  • Is the mentioned 6:00pm the 2nd of July? Or was it 6:00pm on the 1st?

    Worked on iPhone app. Thanks OP.

  • I was targeted but can't apply the voucher. It just says 'This code can't be applied to your order'. I've tried adding a payment option (both Paypal and cc), still the same.

    My 2 items 1 and 2 total $3.42 + $0.34 GST. No shipping costs. Does anyone know why it's not working?

    • CS said is a technical issue that they are working on.
