YMMV: 8% back in eBay Bucks [no minimum]

It’s the Union of the Two Towers ~ in a good way ~ if you are an eBay shopper.

As previously mentioned, running until next Monday morning is a big 20% off coupon promotion for all.

And here comes the second, stackable offer: IF you are participating in the eBay Rewards program, you may have also been invited to participate in another Bonus Bucks promotion, you get 8% eBay Bucks without a minimum purchase amount until Thursday 11/16/17 at 11:59pm pacific time.

First you have to manually activate the offer from the eBay email or your eBay messages (if invited/selected to participate). Some exclusions apply as usual and the maximum rewards you can earn is $100 per transaction, and $500 during the promotional period.

A good place to look for ideas are the eBay Deals along with the Trending Deals (shows only 100 trending deals, less overwhelming to look at than their main deals page). There’s also a dedicated search box there that searches only the Deals, not everything else on eBay.

Another way to look for ideas is our eBay Category posts here…

Amazon teases their Black Friday: Sandisk, Seagate, Holiday Cards, own hardware, HDTVs, etc

Amazon has revealed teasers for their Black Friday Ads via press release. Of camera and photo interest:

+ Save up to 25% on select Seagate hard drives
+ Save on Bushnell Binoculars
+ Save up to 25% on Nikon Coolshot 80 Rangefinder
+ Amazon Prints: holiday cards are 50% off (starting 11/19)
+ various discounts on Amazon’s own hardware devices, HDTVs, etc

These too have been integrated into our Black Friday 2017 Ads Digest.

eBay coupon (120+ stores participating): 20% off $25+ items (max discount $50)

eBay is alternating these days between coupon promotions and eBay Bucks, and now it’s a new supersized holiday coupon promotion with over 120 eBay stores participating. Typically it’s half of that.

Using coupon code PSHOPEARLY in the eBay shopping cart, you can get 20% off eligible items from the 120+ participating retailers that have an individual price of $25+. The maximum discount is $50 off. In other words, items with an individual price of $250+ get a flat $50 off discount.

You can use the categories on the left hand side of the website over there to filter by various factors. There are over 3600 items under the Camera and Photo category. As usual, keep in mind that eBay is a Wild West marketplace, products are in various conditions, in various warranty situations and sellers are of varying quality and reliability 🙂

This is a longer-running coupon, it expires on Monday 11/20/17 at 11am ET. A weeklong coupon!

Target just posted their official Black Friday with an email to everyone in their emailing list. Their offers confirm the usual Canon and Nikon DSLR two lens kit that we saw from other retailers (Costco, Kohls), and introduce two new GoPRO offers that I hadn’t seen yet.

You can find them all integrated into our Black Friday 2017 Ads Digest post.

The longer/reference-y posts go to the main blog since this is the division of labor now. This blog focuses on short time-sensitive posts, while the main blog has longer and more long-running things.

KEH is giving us three days to think about and plan on their Buy More, Save More Coupon. Monoprice on the other hand is giving us two days, which is still better than one day, but not as good as having the whole weekend to plan ahead, and wrap it around your schedule.
