Earn Rewards for Ebay Bids/Purchases/Registration

February 16, 2007 · 5 comments

I was asked to put together some information on sites that will allow you to earn for making bids or BINs on Ebay. To give credit where it’s due, I started with the information provided by Andrew on RewardsDB.com and expanded it a little (calculating point value, removing info on frequent flyer miles programs and a few other programs I don’t cover here, and adding a couple he doesn’t cover) and here are the results:
BabyMint: $1.00 (the site doesn’t say for what but I would think it’s for registering and making your first purchase)
Big Co-op: $0.50 per winning bid (excludes BINs)
BondRewards: Varies – 1 to 20% of Ebay’s transaction fees on BINs or winning auction bids; amount depends on value of the sale. Note that you don’t earn a % on the purchase amount but on Ebay’s profit on the purchase.
BountyZoo: $12 for signing up, and 40% (of Ebay’s transaction fees, I believe, NOT on the selling price) on BINs or winning bids. NOTE: Your first $25 of earnings on BZ go toward the site’s $25 membership fee.
CreationsRewards: 3 points per dollar (1.5%) per BIN or winning bid
FatWallet: 1% (excludes eBay Motors, eBay Real Estate, eBay Charity items, eBay Business, and bids placed with a sniping service)
LittleGrad: $0.25 (would think this is per winning bid but haven’t received confirmation of this from the owners yet)
Milesource: 25 Award Miles per winning bid (~$0.07)
MyPoints: 100 Points (~$0.83) to register and make first purchase, 2 points per dollar (~1.67%) on purchases (BINs only? unclear if this includes winning bids)
QuickRewards: $5 to register and bid or BIN; winning bids or BINs paid by sliding scale (2% if <$50, $50-$100 is 1.6%, $100 to $200 is 1.4%, 1% if >$200)
SunshineRewards (stay tuned for my review of this program, coming soon!): $6 to register and make a bid, then 1%.
Upromise: 1% (excludes eBay Motors, eBay Real Estate, eBay Charity items and eBay Business & Industrial Capital Equipment)
Note: One program (QR) spelled out specifically that rewards are not paid on shipping cost — this is probably true for all rewards programs. Several programs listed Ebay exclusions (including Motors, Real Estate, etc. — this is also probably true across the board).

Hi There,
I noticed that you have not mentioned BountyZoo on the post about earning rewards when you bid on ebay. We offer $12 for signing up to eBay and 40% on a winning bid.

Thanks Becky!

Good news at Sunshine! We just got full approval for eBay tonight and will be offering 1% back with the same standard exclusions effective immediately.

Congrats, Tricia! I’ll update my post.
Craig, I tend to forget about BountyZoo — my apologies, I’ll update my post!
