eBay Bucks Certificates Issued for 2nd Quarter 2019

Sunshine Mint Silver Rounds ebay Bucks

If you’re a member of the eBay Bucks program, eBay has issued the eBay Bucks Certificates for the quarter.

eBay Bucks allows members to earn cash-back like rewards for qualifying eBay purchases.

Since it is the first month of the new quarter, eBay will often wait until the 3rd week of the month before starting any new eBay Bucks promotions. During the first promotion of the quarter is the best time to double-dip your eBay Bucks to earn more while you spend your earned Bucks.

There are several resources if you’re interested in learning more about the program and how you can earn cash-back rewards when you buy silver and gold bullion on eBay.

To find additional eBay Bucks eligible bullion items check out our list of eBay Bucks Eligible Bullion.

The base reward for eBay Bucks is 1% of the purchase price on eligible items. eBay will run promotions throughout each quarter increasing the cash-back reward to as high as 10% of the purchase price on eligible items.

Items in certain categories are excluded from earning eBay Bucks. Such as bullion, gift cards and things like that. However, some dealers will intentionally add listings for Silver Bullion and Gold Bullion items in categories that are eligible for earning eBay Bucks.

Most often, fractional gold coins, such as 20 Francs Gold Coins and British Gold Sovereign coins can be bought well below melt value when factoring in the cash back rewards. Pre-1933 Gold coins, such as the Double Eagle, can be bought for far below melt value.

For those wishing to add gold to their precious metals investments, leveraging the eBay Bucks cash-back rewards program offers an opportunity to buy gold below spot price.

If you’d like to learn more about how you can leverage eBay Bucks to get free silver bullion, or silver and gold bullion below spot price, there are plenty of videos on YouTube that can provide the tutorial information.

Buying Silver Bullion on eBay


The major online silver bullion dealers all have eBay Stores as well. Silver deals can be found on eBay from trusted and reputable sellers. Most of the time the prices offered by the major dealers on eBay are comparable to the credit card prices for the same items listed on their websites. When combined with special offers such as eBay Bucks or periodic eBay 10-15% discount coupons it is possible to get great deals on silver bullion below spot price.

The best deals for buying silver on eBay come at times when eBay is offering a promotion. Periodically throughout each financial quarter, eBay runs promotions involving their eBay Bucks program which increase the eBay Bucks earning to as much as 10% on qualified purchases. At other times, eBay may offer a one-time use discount coupon that could be as much as 10% or 15% of a single purchase.

Buying Silver on eBay During Promotional Periods

Buying silver on eBay during promotional periods is almost like getting a 10% discount on silver bullion. eBay Bucks is a rewards program that acts similar to the way cash-back credit card programs work. Normally, eBay Bucks earns a 1% reward on qualified purchases.

When eBay runs an eBay Bucks promotion the increase in the cash-back reward can be as high as 10%. The cash-back rewards accumulate through each financial quarter and become eligible and must be spent during the first month of the subsequent financial quarter.

When shopping for silver and gold bullion on eBay the prices and premiums often seem unrealistically high, even from trusted and reputable dealers. This is partly due to the fees eBay charges sellers for listings. As well, PayPal fees are typically incorporated into the cost as well. Combined, these fees can make the cost of some products up to 10% to 15% higher than they seem on bullion dealer websites.

However, not all silver bullion purchases will be eligible for earning eBay Bucks or for purchasing with a discount coupon. Items that are specifically or cross-listed in “Bullion” categories are automatically ineligible. Just as gift cards are typically ineligible as well. This is due to a combination of anti-money laundering laws relating to untraceable cash equivalents as well as specific eBay Policies regarding discounts of items in certain categories where sellers are often provided with discounted fees.

Comparing eBay Prices to Those Found on Dealer’s Websites

When comparing prices on eBay for Silver and Gold bullion it’s important to make sure that you’re comparing it to the Credit Card/PayPal price that is listed on the dealer’s websites. This is the closest comparable price.

In addition to the normal fees that PayPal and other credit card processors charge the dealers, eBay tacks on as much as 10% or so in additional fees for each item sold through it’s platform. In some cases, each dealer has a negotiated contract which provides them with lower fees because of the large volume of purchases.

In some cases, the dealers will absorb the extra fee and in some cases it is passed on to the customer with a slightly higher premium than the dealer would charge on their own website.

Typically, dealers like APMEX, Bullion Exchanges, Liberty Coin and BOLD Precious Metals will sell silver bullion on eBay that is eligible for eBay Bucks and other promotions. Dealer’s are aware of when the promotions are running and will often adjust their pricing on eBay accordingly knowing that savvy buyers are looking for a good deal.

During the promotion periods it’s common to find both foreign silver coins and Pre-1933 US Gold coins available for close to or below spot price when factoring in the promotional discount or earned eBay Bucks.


eBay Bucks Certificates Issued for First Quarter 2019


eBay has issued eBay Bucks certificates for any Bucks earned during the first quarter of 2019. Throughout the first quarter, eBay ran numerous promotions  starting in mid-January.

eBay’s first Bucks promotion of the year started with an 8% bonus running from January 16- 18, 2019.

The promotions continued into February, with a promotion running weekly.

eBay Bucks Promotions continued running weekly throughout March.

Since it’s the beginning of a new quarter and the start of a new earning period, it’s typical for eBay to not begin running a promotion until the second or third week of April. Those wishing to “double-dip” eBay Bucks, earning more bonus bucks while spending their previously earned Bucks, may wish to hold off until then.

The eBay Bucks earned during the first quarter of 2019 must be redeemed in the first 30 days after the certificates are issued. So earned eBay Bucks must be spent on or before May 2.
