eBay Bucks Bonus

6% eBay Bucks Bonus Offer

eBay has another eBay Bucks bonus offer available for buyers and sellers. Not everyone is eligible for this offer, but you can check here if you’re targeted, before you go any further.

The Offer

Earn 6% in eBay Bucks on every qualifying item when you buy, or earn 8% on the value of the items you sell. No minimum purchase/sale amount.

  • Users who purchase eligible items between 5:00AM PT on January 17, 2018, and 11:59PM PT on January 18, 2018 (the “Purchase Earn Period”), will earn the promotional offer.
  • Users who list eligible items between 5:00AM PT on January 17, 2018, and 11:59PM PT January 18, 2017 (the “Selling Earn Period”), will also be eligible for the promotional offer. Must sell items by January 28, 2018 to earn eBay Bucks worth 6% of the total sales price—up to $100.
  • Rewards will be deposited into an eBay Bucks account by March 31, 2018.

Rewards are capped at $100 per transaction and $500 per quarter.


Qualifying purchase or items listed for sale excludes all items 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.

Gift Card Sale

Speaking of gift cards, there’s some new discounted offers on eBay. Remember that gift card purchases are not eligible for this eBay Bucks offer, but can still get you decent discounts if you see any of your favorite merchants.

  • $50 Domino’s Pizza Gift Card for only $40
  • $100 Cabela’s Gift Card For Only $82
  • $100 Bed Bath and Beyond Gift Card for only $90
  • $50 Outback Steakhouse Gift Card for only $40
  • $50 O’Charley’s Gift Card for only $40
  • $25 Burger King Gift Card for only $20

You can find all of the discounted gift cards here.


It’s good to see these offers for sellers since the buying offers are not as enticing now that eBay gutted their eBay Bucks program by excluding gift cards and lowering cashback rate from 2% to 1%. We have seen offers as high as 10% in the past, but this one could still be useful.

This is a targeted offer, so check your accounts to see if you’re eligible. Also don’t forget to go through a shopping portal if you are making any purchases. TopCashBack has the best rate right now at 1.75%.
