[eBay.ca] $5 off purchase of $5.01 (YMMV)

Signed into my ebay.ca account today and saw a $5 off a purchase of $5.01. I checked both my ebay account and they both have the unique coupon code. Check your spam box.

must be targeted; i dont see this in my app. most likely you must not have bought anything via ebay for a while to qualify

Nothing here either. I made my last purchase on eBay about 2 weeks ago.

Thanks for the heads up OP! None of my accounts were eligible and two of them I haven't used in over a year. Oh well, maybe next time!

My family members eBay accounts are unused since last $5 off $5.01 promotion that was available to a lot of people with sms text messages.

My oldest account has the promotion, the one I did not want to misuse for the sms text fiasco....

Recent family accounts don’t have it.

My girlfriend’s old account does not have current promotionC but I found one in May, two in June, one in July.

They really are hungry with people who have not used for a while :)

It seems like you are more likely to get the code if you haven't used your account for a while. YMMV

After reading this checked my email. I got a 25 dollar coupon of 25.01 USD. It said I was one of the first members. That’s totally ymmv

I used my coupon on stamps (8 x $0.52 stamps) at $5.16 CAD - $5 CAD= $0.16 CAD

I will be able to post 4 normal letters to Canada with this.

I got it last time and used it. However, the order was immediately cancelled by the vendor. Now Ebay gives me a $5 discount but the minimum spend is $10 and not $5.01.
We're Sorry Your Order Was Cancelled
Unfortunately, some of our sellers have been experiencing issues due to the current unprecedented circumstances. We know this is frustrating, and we're doing everything we can to support our buyers and sellers through this difficult time. We’d like to offer you a $5 coupon.*
