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.


    I have same offer.
