(ENDED) YMMV: 5X eBay Bucks on Items priced $50+ [must Opt-In first]

This eBay Bucks promotion expired, but if you missed it, fear not ~ these are recurring every few days/weeks…

If you are a member of the eBay Rewards Program (“eBay Bucks”) check your emails or eBay inboxes for a new promotion, you earn 5X eBay Bucks (aka 10% off the purchase price) on individual items priced $50 or more. You must first opt-in to this offer before you will earn the bonus bucks. The usual exclusions apply (you can find them in your eBay email/message with this promotion). Maximum rewards are $100 in eBay Bucks per individual item and $500 in eBay Bucks total during this promotion. Promotion ends at 11:59PM PT on March 9, 2016.

A couple of places to look for ideas are the eBay Deals and the Trending Deals.

The Opt-In step may be annoying but it’s probably what makes these promotions possible, since they only give the bonus to the people who specifically join the promotion versus every eBay shopper. The idea of course being to “encourage” shoppers to shop more.
