Beware of Phony eBay Coupons Circulating in Email and on the web.

June 23rd, 2008 by Skip McGrath

Some blogggers are sending out a free 10% off eBay coupon. They are using the coupon as a come-on to get you to click on a link for something they are selling

I will be out later today with more news from eBay Live, but I wanted to give my readers a heads up on some phony coupon offers you might receive by eMail -and one that is turning up in blog posts.

eBay is running a promotion via Direct mail that expires June 30. I found this on two blogs and got it in an email from someone selling a Secret Wholesale List on Clickbank.

Although the coupons are real they only work for the person they were originally sent to. Here is the text from one email I received:

Ebay/PayPal Coupons – expire June 30th

This is just a short note with two eBay coupons for you.

CJUNE0810P is 10% off any eBay auction up to $100 discount.

CJUNE10SHIP is $10.00 off on shipping. The shipping discount can be used three times.

Both coupons expire June 30th.

Neither coupon works with Liveauctions.

Here’s how to redeem these offers:

Buy something on eBay. Be sure the seller accepts PayPal.

Pay for your item with PayPal before the expiration date:

June 30, 2008 11:59:59 PM PDT.

Enter the redemption code: CJUNE10SHIP or CJUNE0810P

At the end of the email he asks you to click on a link that has an affiliate product he is flogging.

A couple of blogs claim the coupons work, but I tried them both on my user ID and my wifes’ ID it was a NO GO. After I was comitted to buying and paying for the item, I got a message that the code was no good. that’s OK because it was an item I wanted but I would have loved to save 10% on it.

See you later today and stay tuned for my newsletter on Wednesday.

Still another way for shoppers to come across promotional codes for online shopping is via the internet. There are actually sites exactly where members frequently post the codes they acquire through catalogs and emails for the benefit of others who could be looking for a discount on a purchase from a specific on-line retailer. Shoppers can use these promotional codes so long as there are actually no restrictions on sharing these codes.
