Last night, I wrote about an offer going on where eBay had a 10% off code for select categories. It was a really nice code to get a better deal on some electronics like tablets, laptops, and cell phones.
eBay Deal Combo – Discount Code, eBay Bucks [targeted], and TopCashBack
Well, the code (CDTECH10) is still good through today and it is a good time to check your e-mail as well! There are many targeted 5X eBay Bonus Buck offers going out. For those not familiar, eBay Bucks are a small percentage on what you have purchased each quarter. At the end of a particular quarter, you are issued an eBay code for the amount you have accrued and you can use that anywhere on eBay, including on gift cards.
With this increase, the bonus is now 10% back on any purchases over $100 (up to a maximum of $100 off). When combined in the categories that the 10% tech coupon applies to, you can get a total of 10% off and then 10% back on future purchases on eBay.
To make it even sweeter, you can start through TopCashBack* and earn another 1.1% cash back. Altogether, this deal combo can make for a nice haul of savings if you are looking for a particular device. There are a lot of phones available that you could buy for traveling (if you do not already have an unlocked device).
My personal favorite for travel purposes is the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Duos. It can be had new for right around $200. With this deal combo, you will get $2.20 cashback (through TopCashBack), $20 off before payment (with code CDTECH10), and then another $18 in eBay bucks for future purchases. That brings your total net cost of the device to $160. The nice thing is that it has dual SIM slots if you want to take your home SIM for seeing who calls you as well as including a local SIM for your travels.
That is just one idea. There are many! So, start searching! Before you buy, you must see if you are targeted for the Bonus Bucks offer (check your e-mail) and activate it through the provided link. You can also tell by visiting the eBay home page while you are logged in and seeing if it scrolls by in the featured slot.
Though the 10% off code is only good in certain tech categories, the Bonus Bucks will be good across eBay. You can purchase gift cards for future purchases and get the 5X bonus bucks (if you were targeted) so that may help to raise the amount. Just know that you must buy something over $100 and the bonus bucks cap out at $100 back ($1,000 in spend).
