eBay sellers & buyers: Earn 8% eBay Bucks [TARGETED]

eBay is running a targeted promotion for both sellers and buyers for 8% back in eBay bucks. eBay promotions are highly targeted, so you may or may not receive this promotion on your account. While promotions for buyers are common, promotions on the selling side do not come around as often. Users who are targeted should receive an email and eBay message and should see this on the eBay home page when logged in:

ebay bucks for sellers and buyers

The Offer

Buyers

  • Earn 8% in eBay bucks when you purchase eligible items between 5am PT on March 17, 2017 and 11:59pm PT on March 19, 2017.

Sellers

  • Earn 8% in eBay bucks when you list and sell eligible items between 5am PT on March 17th, 2017 and 11:59pm PT on March 26, 2017. Eligible Items must sell and be paid for with PayPal before the end of the promotional period.

Key Terms

  • eBay Bucks Rewards are capped at $100 per transaction and $500 per Earn Period (total between buying and selling).
  • Excludes purchases or sales in the following categories: Classifieds, Business & Industrial, but only for Heavy Equipment within that category, Real Estate, Gift Cards & Coupons (including eBay Gift Cards, Gift Cards, and Digital Gifts within that category), Bullion (within the Coins & Paper category), and all categories in Motors, except Parts & Accessories

Bottom Line

This can be an excellent opportunity for sellers to make a few dollars more, especially on expensive items and where the buyer has also been targeted for 8% in eBay bucks. Remember that items must be listed, sold, and paid for during the promotional period. This means that prior listings will not apply. I am not sure whether simply ending your listing and re-listing meets the terms or if you will need to create a new listing in order to qualify.

Terms state that rewards will be deposited into your eBay Bucks account by March 31. Note the limitations instituted on eBay bucks over the past several months (you can no longer buy an eBay gift card with eBay bucks, etc).
