Denied here but I'm about the least loyal PayPal member so whatever criteria they have it worked in my case!

Yep I spend about 100-200 bucks a month through paypal for the last 8-10 years, and sell a couple thousand or so through ebay as well, and was denied so who knows.

I clicked the link and received the offer. I hardly use PayPal, maybe couple of times a year.

 

The only time I use Paypal is when a site is too shady to provide credit card information or when Paypal is mandatory eg: Transactions for PayPalDigital seller on ebay.

Well using PayPal almost daily finally gets me somewhere?

 

This got me worried (only saw your post after getting denied)!  FWIW, reddit seems to think it's legit:

The browser verifies it as being a PayPal site.

It'll probably be disappointing, but I'm apparently loyalty royalty in the PayPal sphere. One week until it all pays off...

Denied :( I do over 150 paypal transactions a year between buying and selling since 2002.. but apparently that's not considered loyal. Oh well!

I've been using PayPal as both a buyer and seller for over 10 years now but at least we know what loyal means I guess

How dare you deny me PayPal! You mean that the weekly $2-$4 transactions I do, buying digital copies on bluray.com forums, isn't enough to fill your pockets. Consumer based fascists. Guess it is my own fault for buying a "I'm with Her" t-shirt using my PayPal account. Hahahah!

Makes no sense.  I am in?  I have had an account for 13 years but if I ran $1000 through it that whole time (paying or receiving) I would be shocked.  I do use it on a occasion but really only if there is no other option.

 

Doubt whatever the deal is with XBox I will bite but I guess I will see.

 

Thanks OP.

All of us who got in are probably going to be disappointed on the 8th.

I got approved for future disappointment!

You gotta be loyal, you can't be gallivanting around to other online payment services...

Can anyone that can log in confirm the eBay deals they're being offered for those that have been denied?

 

It looks like you can still access the deals if you use F12 developer tools (look at the "?s=e node").

Right now there are four deals listed in the HTML:

 

Beverly Hills Country Club Spinner

Furreal Friends

CHIC Hover Board

Bulova Dress Watch

 

These all have Paypal URLs that redirect to eBay listings that seem to represent the deal. It doesn't look like there's any check in the redirection that stops you from going to the deal.

So, perhaps this is a workaround?
 

I'm sure whatever Xbox deal they have will be garbage, though.

Interesting. They're probably just hidden eBay listings.

Not even hidden, really. The paypal links redirect to this page, and the listings are public:

Wow so we might have a chance, although I'm not expecting more than a 20% discount on XBL.
