Another great stacking advantage at eBay with a 10% eBay Bucks bonus as well as gift card sales, portal bonuses, and more! Plus, this is the best time!

eBay is running another great eBay Bonus Bucks offer and this one is better than the earlier ones because of one main thing – timing! When put together with portal bonuses and sales on gift cards (as well as other things you may find interesting), this is a great way to get additional savings on things at eBay.

Make sure you check out the portals! Airlines are offering 1 mile per dollar spent while some of the cashback portals are paying out more – up to 3% (iConsumer with a $20 cap). Find the complete list here at Cashback Monitor.

Gift Card Sales & Other Great Deals

eBay Bucks

There are an abundance of gift cards on sale which is a savings on future spend for sure! Some of these are restaurant gift cards, retail gift cards, and even gas station gift cards. If you want to take advantage of the Bonus Bucks and Portal Bonuses, check out gift cards from both Delta and American Airlines to save at least 11% on future travel! See the whole list of sale gift cards here.

Chase Ink Advantage

Anything sold by PayPal Digital Gifts has historically been in the 5X point earning category for Chase Ink cards. That means that some of the gift cards will let you earn even more points. For example, let’s look at buying American Airline cards (or Delta):

Let’s say you max out the bonus for one purchase – $1,000 (for $100 in eBay Bucks to spend later). Let’s see how it works out.

  • Buy $1,000 in gift cards
  • Get $100 for future eBay purchases
  • Earn 5,000 Ultimate Reward points
  • Get another 1 American Airline mile per dollar or 1.1% cashback with TopCashBack (
  • Total – $110 cashback and 5,000 UR points (worth at least $75 depending on your transfer partner)

Those are some great savings and they work for any gift card sold by PayPal Digital Gifts when paid for with your Chase Ink card


These eBay Bonus Buck deals are great and really help with the triple-stacking of deals for greater savings! This is perfect timing for me as I had my eye on a couple of things to purchase but I was waiting for my payout next week. No more! I will just now have that much more to gain with my Bucks payout!
