About the eBay Bucks Discount Program

eBay® Bucks is a special rewards program for eBay users in the United States, though similar reward programs are available for eBay users in Canada and the United Kingdom. You do not automatically earn these simply by being an eBay member. You must enroll in the program before you can start to earn rewards.

How the eBay Bucks Discount Program Works

eBay members who use PayPal® and are based in the United States with an account in good standing are eligible for the eBay Bucks rewards[+] program. Once enrolled, members will earn eBay bucks on all their qualifying purchases. At the end of the quarter, eBay will cash out the eBay Bucks balance and convert it into a certificate for you to use as a coupon code on a future order. Then, any future qualifying purchases will start to accumulate for the next quarter.

You will earn a percentage of what you spend (not including sales tax and shipping) back in eBay Bucks. You will earn a base 2%, though some promotions may increase your percentage. When browsing the website, you will be able to see how much you would earn back in bucks.

Terms and Conditions of Your eBay Bucks Discount

Not all purchases will qualify for eBay Bucks. You will earn eBay bucks on all qualifying purchases (see below) except for purchases made in the following categories:

    • All categories in eBay Motors, except Parts & Accessories. Those purchases do qualify.
    • Classifieds
    • Real Estate
    • Gift Cards & coupons, but only for eBay Gift Cards within that category
    • Coins & Paper Money, but only for Bullion within that category
    • Business & Industrial

In order to qualify, orders must be:

      • Paid for with PayPal: Payment needs to be made on the eBay’s checkout system. Payments made directly via PayPal to a seller’s account aren’t eligible.
      • Made AFTER you enroll in the eBay Bucks Rewards Program (can be winning bid or Buy it Now).
      • Bought on the US eBay site ( Some third-party automated bidding applications (sniping tools) are actually placing their bids on international sites as opposed to bidding on the US site directly. Purchases completed by these applications do not qualify to earn eBay Bucks.

Benefits of Having the eBay Bucks Discount

While the discount program won’t help you with any current purchases, if you’re shopping there anyway, the discount can help you save money on future purchases. This is a great way to “put money in the bank” for birthday and holiday gifts.

Do the eBay Bucks Discounts Expire?

Yes, they do expire. You’ll receive a code with your certificate to redeem them, and if after 30 days you do not redeem them, you lose them. You will be able to continue earning bucks toward the next quarter’s certificate.
