Join eBay Plus Get $50 Gift Card Deal - They Overcharged Me $9

Has anyone else had this happen?

I got the email offering a $50 credit for Ebay AU for joining Plus. When I clicked the link, it offered the first year at $39.99 however, when I checked my receipt, they'd charged me $9 more.

I've put in a dispute, but wondered if others have had this happen, too?

    Doesn't display $39 anywhere. eBay Plus page has $49 written all over it. Good luck trying to dispute for something you must have misread.

    When I click on take up offer here it says "To join eBay Plus, you need to provide a payment method. eBay Plus normally costs AU $49.00 per year, but by joining now, you'll pay just AU $39.00 for your first year. Your membership will be automatically renewed each year, unless you've cancelled it."

    Good luck

    The real question is why you would buy eBay plus…

  •  

    They probably only offer one promotion at a time. I clicked on a $39 link and they then refused me a free trial first, they said take the $39 or nothing

    I got the promotion too and signed up. The banners all state "pay $49" on mine and if you check the Terms and Conditions page, it states that "6. Standard eBay Plus membership fees of $49 per annum will apply from the time of sign up." With the gift card, they're paying you $1 to join so it's still a good deal if you were going to buy from eBay anyway.

    Good luck with your dispute.

      I agree with u. I was offered $39 to join but with this promotion, I saved $40 ie $39 joining fee and $1.00 difference between the $49 paid and $50 gift voucher

  •  

    I got the same promo but email mentioned as $49

    As I originally stated, I clicked through THEIR email link to purchase Ebay Plus. It brought me to the purchase page @ $39.99. I don't quite understand why some here would assume I'd read it wrong, so here's the screenshot.

    Lastly, For those wondering, I'm in WA and we pay much more for shipping on a lot of items. I usually purchase weighty items so Plus is an advantage for me. With this deal, I'm essentially getting Plus + $50 credit (already received that, btw) and once dispute is settled, should be ahead cost-wise. Worst case is I break even.
