No More eBay Cashback? Temporarily

June 6, 2011 · 2 comments

Where can I earn cashback for buying on eBay? Soon, nowhere…at least, not for a while.

Cashback/points sites have been notified by eBay that as of next week (MyPoints says on 6/16) they’ll be “temporarily” deactivated as eBay tries out some different things marketing-wise.

How long this freeze-out is going to last isn’t clear.

If you were planning to make a big purchase through eBay and had expected to receive cashback, get your eBay order in by June 15th! The best cashback rates right now are 3% cashback (up to a max of $30 per order) through MrRebates on winning bids or BINs, or 4 points per dollar (2.9%) through MyPoints plus a 200 point bonus ($1.45) if you make two or more eBay purchases before the deadline.  See either site for a few restrictions (including eBay motors and charity auctions).

Thanks so much for posting about this. Hope it’s only temporary since it would be difficult to finish my eBay Christmas shopping by June 15!
