    Unfortunately you can not buy coins with the discount. In the T&C's it says "Purchases of items listed in the following categories are excluded from this offer: Coins (11116)"

    Last year you could and I did it a couple of times but that's gone now.

    The maximum discount is $300 per transaction too. (They let you do 2)

    From what others have reported here, anything after Coins in your example won't get the discount, however I have not tried it so I don't know for sure..

    You can buy gold jewellery and get the discount.... also any precious metals that are listed in the antiques categories

    Also, I think you have to log in through ebay Australia to apply the discount (I was in ebay UK the other day and tried to buy something with 5% off but the code wouldn't work, as soon as I logged in to ebay Oz it was fine)

    I'm all for the reward points too, as well as the shiney stuff of course. You can go through many online portals linked to eBay and collect more points with, Velocity estore, KrisFlyer spree, Qantas onlinemall, and more or just collect money back through cash rewards. You would be crazy not to collect extra on your eBay purchases

    Log into your favourite frequent flyer account (for Aussies it will most likely be virgin, qantas or Singapore airline) then head to the respective online store portal, and when you make a purchase through the portal you will receive frequent flyer points towards your next rewards booking or online purchase of a gift card (or toaster, which is the worst use of points ) link to these are
    https://estore.velocityfrequentflyer.com/department-stores/ebay-australia

    https://onlinemall.qantaspoints.com/info/81336/15658/ebay/afsrc=1

    https://www.krisflyerspree.com/department-stores/ebay-australia

    Just be aware that Singapore air miles will expire three years after earning them regardless of activity
    Whereas velocity and qantas points last forever as long as you have activity on your account (18month for qantas, 24 months for virgin)

    Or just money back by signing up to cash rewards (probably others too), try

    Nah, I didn't get it. I tried your code to buy some envelopes and it didn't work. Thank for the heads up anyway.:)

    I just check the terms and conditions and it is a targeted offer. Looks like I got it cause I linked flybuys card with eBay a while ago.

    I got unlimited 500 flybuys extra points for each $50 spend... shite offer

    Though the amount offers on eBay is great or ridiculous depending on ones point of view.
    It is literally becoming like bricks and mortar where there is a sale for any and every possible reason to have one.
