eBay Bucks Eligible Bullion

eBay Bucks is a loyalty rewards program offered by eBay to customers. It is eBay's way of rewarding loyal customers with a cash back bonus on eligible purchases. The base cash back reward offered in the eBay Bucks program is 1% of the purchase price of an item up to $100 per transaction.

Throughout the year eBay offers special promotions where the cash back reward has been as high as 15%. Most gold and silver bullion items are not eligible to receive cash back rewards. Excluded items include silver and gold items listed in the bullion category.

However, some items that are silver and gold bullion have numismatic value and are available in other categories that are eligible to receive the cash back rewards. Buying when eBay runs promotions offering a higher cash back helps to offset silver and gold bullion costs and can reduce the dollar cost average across your precious metals investment.

Below are some examples of some items that are often eligible to earn eBay Bucks. This list is not meant to be an exhaustive list of all eBay Bucks eligble bullion items.

More information about the eBay Bucks rewards program and how to sign up for it can be found on eBay's website.

Frequently Asked Questions about eBay Bucks and Buying Bullion

How can I earn eBay Bucks when buying bullion?

In most cases you cannot earn eBay Bucks when buying bullion. The bullion categories are specifically excluded from earning eBay Bucks in the terms and conditions. However, sellers often list items in multiple categories or will list items in different categories in order to attract new buyers. When the seller chooses to list the item in other categories, those items can become available to earn eBay Bucks.

Additionally, some items that are considered bullion, such as gold coins and junk silver currency are also categorized as collectibles and numismatics. Many numismatics and collectibles are eligble for earning eBay Bucks.

How can I sign up for eBay Bucks Promotions?

How often does eBay offer Bucks Promotions?

Only eBay knows for sure. But historically, eBay has launched the first promotion during the third week of the first month of the quarter. Then, several times throughout each quarter eBay has launched Bucks Promotions that increase the cash back rewards on eligible purchases.

How much cash back can I earn during eBay Bucks promotions?

The bonus amounts have ranged from 6% to 15%. Sometimes the promotions have minimum purchase amounts. There have also been promotions that restrict bonus earnings to only those who make purchases using the Mobile App.

The maximum amount you can earn each quarter is limited to $500. The maximum amount earned per purchase is capped at $100. For example, if an eBay Bucks promotion is running with a 10% bonus. There's a $20 St-Gaudens Double Eagle Coin that you've found that is listed at $1250. Buying that coin will earn you $100 eBay Bucks that you can spend during the next quarter. If you wanted to earn the quarterly maximum you would need to make 5 separate transactions.
