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.
