FP clearly states ebay gift cards. It works on everything else.

 

 

There an expiration for the $5 off promo anywhere?

To combine with the 6% eBay bucks, it seems to need to be $50 for a single item after the $5 is taken off.  A $55 gift card would've been great for that, but there isn't an option there for it.

Yup, had to buy a $100 gift card to stack the 6% ebay bucks and $5 off.

It's better than nothing I guess. Now that I won't hit Elite Plus or even Elite this year, I might as well keep on buying BB gift cards at discounted prices.

You could still buy gift cards with gift cards at Best Buy right?

I need some PSN cards too. Looking to buy the Rise of Iron dlc and the premium pass for BF1

Its YMMV, though I haven't had problems buying 3rd party GCs in a BBY store with a BBY GC. 

Just remember that you cannot use eBay GCs to buy 3rd party GCs anymore (physical or digital).

Anyone keep getting the following errors, or know any work arounds for this?

"The item you've selected was not added to your cart. Please try again."

"Item(s) in your cart are not available in the quantity you originally requested. We have updated your shopping cart to reflect the amount that is currently available. Please review these changes before proceeding to checkout."

Thanks, OP.  Getting a little PSN credit in the wallet before my 20% off coupon from PLAY2016 comes next week in order to maximize my savings.  Between the two promotions I can get $60 in PSN value for $45 actual dollars.  Nice.  :D/

I havent seen this kind of sale on only digital giftcards. Must be that people aren't buying from them now that they cant use eBay gift cards or use general promotions on them.

Not a good time for me, as I already spent a lot for Labor Day. Besides, I'll wait for the Rite Aid deals, where it's at least $8 back per $50 spent.

I think you can't use eBay gc to buy eBay gc but you can use them to buy other gc off eBay right ?

Not anymore, they even blocked anything in the Gift card category.

The savings should be reflected once the $50 gift card is in your cart

You can get the 6% eBay bucks to trigger on 3 x $25 gift cards (same brand), too, but then you have to figure if that's better for you than just doing 2 x $50 gift cards in separate transactions and getting the $5 discount twice.

 

3 x $25 - $5 = $70

$70 * 0.06 = $4.20 in eBay bucks

=>

$70 for $79.20* (11.62% off)

 

1 x $50 - $5 = $45

$45 * 0.02 = $0.90 in eBay bucks

x 2

=>

$90 for $101.80* (11.59% off)

 

On the $95 for $100 Groupon ...

1 x $95 - $5 = $90

$90 * 0.06 = $5.40 in eBay bucks

=>

$90 for $105.40* (14.6% off)

 

Buying a $100 Gift Card is not a better option, though.

1 x $100 - $5 = $95

$95 * 0.06 = $5.70 in eBay bucks

=>

$95 for $105.70* (10.1% off)

 

 

If you like Domino's, then that seems to be a good deal, too.

2 x $45 - $5 = $85

$85 * 0.06 = $5.10 in eBay bucks

=>

$85 for $105.10* (19.1% off)

I got mine in minutes.

 

In my case,in the past it went into a Spam folder, and was instantly deleted since it wasn't my primary email account that it was sent to.  If you bought one and didn't get your code, check your Spam folder (and make sure your assigned email's Spam folder doesn't auto-delete), then contact them and have the code re-sent

Got my codes 20 minutes after order was processed. Got $50 of PSN credit to get 4 games on their Indie sale plus Indigo Prophecy, and $30 of EShop credit to get Phoenix Wright 6 on Friday. Thanks OP!

Do the Xbox digital gift cards work for me to buy a physical item on the microsftostore.com website? For example: can I buy a $50 digital Xbox gift card from eBay through this promotion and then use that towards buying an Xbox One S console?

FYI, you can mix smaller card denominations and still get this deal as long as they total $50 (I got two $20 cards and a $10 from 3 different retailers).

Damn, I was wondering why it wouldn't accept my giftcard.  When did that change happen?
