eBay Canada: List Free 10 Day Auction & Fixed Price

Posted by on September 24, 2014 at 6:00 PM

eBay Canada: List Free 10 Day Auction & Fixed Price

List auction style and fixed priced free on eBay Canada. This promotion is now on for five days so take those pictures and prepare to sell some items!

While you can usually have up to 50 auction-style listings free, per month, those only include up to seven-day auctions. For the next five days, you can also list your auctions for a 10-day duration, which has an additional value of $0.40 per listing.

Fixed-priced listings are rarely free from eBay unless they are putting on one of these promotional events. They cost $0.30 each and have the added benefit of staying up either for 30 days or are ‘good till cancelled’ without needing to pay additional fees. I also prefer fixed-priced listings that give a buyer the option to make an offer. I can make a higher profit as a seller than using an auction, and a buyer has the option to offer me lower than the price I list the item at. This way, there is a greater chance for my item to sell.

If you think it sounds like I buy and sell on eBay, then you would be right in your assessment. I refuse to pay insertion fees, and rather take advantage of these promotions to list my items. Here is a quick rundown on how much I have saved over the last couple of months by taking advantage of eBay’s promotions:

  • September: Saved $5.46
  • August: Saved $6.92

I only started heavily selling with eBay again about mid-July (and eBay invoices mid-month to mid-month), so I am quite pleased with my progress so far. I have saved over $12 and have actually made money too. As I like to call it: I have recovered money from what I already own. Here is how I have done on selling so far:

  • September: Made $150 approximately
  • August: Made $109.55

I say approximately on September’s total as Paypal holds your money for up to 21 days until you are an established eBay seller. I have no idea how long that takes, as I have made over 30 sales in the years I have been on eBay. However, as I am listing in USD, my total made is approximate until I receive the held funds and convert it over to Canadian.

Do you buy and sell on eBay Canada? If so, feel free to comment telling us the best thing you ever sold!

Bargainmoose Contest: Win a $250 eBay Gift Card (EXPIRED)

Posted by on September 16, 2014 at 7:00 AM

Bargainmoose Contest: Win a $250 eBay Gift Card (EXPIRED)

*** Contest now closed, winner added soon! ***

Do you like spending money on eBay? How about $250? All you have to do is enter our contest for your chance to win a $250 gift card to spend on anything you want over at eBay.

I love shopping at eBay as they really have everything and they have some really kick-butt deals. For example, they just started their Deal Frenzy, which has deals on for as much as 70% off and are all featured items from trusted sellers. The trusted sellers part gets me the best as you really don’t want to buy anything from someone who can’t be trusted, especially refurbs or electronics. These deals end on September 20th and of particular note, I am very interested in this KitchenAid heavy duty pro 500 stand mixer. For $249.99 U.S. (about $276.80 CDN), this is truly a steal. There are some shipping and import charges you should be aware of when you buy though. There are deals that ship from Canada as well.

If that amount of shipping throws you off, you could check out the free shipping deals that are also up to 60% off. I personally try to only shop with free shipping, so this is a much better option for me. This mini portable HD LED projector is something I’d love to have for my family room. It ships free and comes to $71.97, which is a nice price!

Brand Vault is pretty cool if you like shopping directly by brand rather than random searching on the site. For example, you can shop directly from NewEgg on eBay for almost anything in electronics.

How to win this prize?

Comment below on the following question(s):

What was your best ever eBay find? If you’ve never shopped at eBay, what is your dream find?

Get bonus contest entries!

Rules:

  • Canadian entrants only
  • One entry per household
  • Ends 22nd September 2014

eBay Canada: WORX TRIVAC 3-in-1 Blower Now $69.99 & Free Shipping

Posted by on September 10, 2014 at 10:30 PM

eBay Canada: WORX TRIVAC 3 in 1 Blower Now $69.99 & Free Shipping

I found this cool deal on a handy tool to have around the yard. Pick up the WORX TRIVAC 3-in-1 Blower/Mulcher/Vacuum for just $69.99 with free shipping at eBay Canada.

This product ships from within Canada so there are no duties to worry about. With free shipping, all you pay for is the tool and applicable taxes. I price compared this tool as best I could to make sure you are getting a good deal. The Worx Trivac at The Tool Store Canada costs $129.99. I also found it at Amazon.com for $89.99, and you would have to pay for shipping to Canada and duties on top of that (if it shipped to Canada, which it does not). I think the deal on eBay is pretty fair.

This is a lightweight and compact blower, mulcher, and vacuum. It will not take up much space in the garage and its multi-purpose design will ensure that it is regularly used around the place. Use the blower to clean off the driveway and blow leaves into a pile in your yard. The mulcher will turn those leaves into more manageable sizes for turning into compost or disposing of. The vacuum will help you clean out the garage and you can even use it in your car.

Features:

  • blow away debris at 210 mph
  • vacuuming at up to 14 gallons per minute
  • powerful 12 amp motor
  • 7-speed blower control
  • Angled nose makes it easier to reach
  • runs quiet

It comes with a bag for collecting what you have sucked up and a two-piece tube attachment (not sure what that is for). Switching from one job to another occurs at just the flick of a switch. The tool is covered by a two-year warranty as well and the eBay seller is the manufacturer themselves so you should have no problems with claiming warranty.

Over 100 of these have already sold on eBay and I have no idea how many are left so try to buy yours sooner rather than later.

I think this is a pretty cool device and I would love to get one for my parents. They have a double lot to keep clean, and I know that the Worx Trivac would be very useful for tidying up the yard and my Dad’s garage. He might even vacuum out his truck for once – that would be a novelty!

eBay Canada: List For Free & Upgrade To 10 Day Listings

Posted by on August 26, 2014 at 3:00 PM

eBay Canada: List For Free & Upgrade To 10 Day Listings

Now for a deal of a different kind. eBay Canada is offering free listings for five days, plus you can upgrade to the ten-day listing (usually costs extra) for free as well. This is the perfect time to do a little spring-cleaning and list your items on eBay free of charge. No money spent, no money lost.

You may be thinking that this is not that great of a promotion, but it is – trust me on this. I am a casual eBay seller, which means I list about four things a month. Generally, they are the same four things until one of them sells and then I add in something new. I mainly list my items when these eBay promotions come around because I am not willing to pay to sell items, especially when I have to pay eBay and Paypal when an item sells. Last month, I saved nearly $7 in insertion fees and upgrades (ten-day listings, etc.) by taking advantage of these promotions.

eBay Canada: List For Free & Upgrade To 10 Day Listings

While this promotion may seem small, it can quickly add up.

eBay Canada has also made changes to the way they do their regular ‘free’ listings outside of this promotion. Many categories are now excluded, and re-listing is no longer free. However, you can select a box while making your listing that will automatically re-list your item up to three times (or maybe two), for free. If you do not check this box then your item will not re-list for free and you will have to pay for it. This came as a shock to be when I started ebay-ing again.

eBay can be a slow arduous process because the website has millions of items on it, so exposure can limit your item’s selling potential. Here are some tips to selling on eBay:

  1.  Use social media. Tell your friends and your family what you are selling and ask them to help spread the word.
  2. When tweeting, hashtag or ‘@’ the company that makes the item you are selling. When people are looking up that brand, they will find your associated message.
  3. Choose a good title for your listing with lots of details and key words like material, colour, designer name, the word designer, etc.
  4. Include as many details as possible and always disclose all information regarding condition.
  5. Take good pictures and include a lot of them!

Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset Only $23.62 & Free Shipping @ eBay.ca

Posted by on July 20, 2014 at 12:00 PM

Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset Only $23.62 & Free Shipping @ eBay.ca

If you’re looking for a good deal on a low-cost bluetooth headset for some handsfree chatting, have a glance at this Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset which is currently on offer from eBay.ca. You can pick up this device for only $23.62 with free shipping!

The Bluetooth headset is originally priced in US dollars, coming in at $21.99 which equates to about $23.62 Canadian.

Shipping

Even though the Motorola H17 is being shipping from the US, the item listing does state this:

International items may be subject to customs processing and additional charges.

There’s a very small chance you might get hit with an extra fee at your door as I mentioned in this recent article about Canadian shipping, as the headset is just over the $20 customs limit. However, we’ll all keep the fingers crossed that you don’t pay anything extra! If you make an order for this Motorola, please tell us how it went in the comments below.

Packaging

This Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset comes with “Non-Retail Packaging,” meaning that it is not in its original packaging or it may be unsealed. I think for this reason, the sellers cannot class it as brand new… but the item is new and unused, it’s just the packaging that’s not as it was when it left the factory.

Price Comparison

Right now, a marketplace seller on Amazon.ca is offering this same headset for $83, it’s out of stock but it was $119 @ TigerDirect, and it’s also priced at $88 @ CDW. Therefore, I think this is a great deal on eBay.

Video Review

If you’d like to see a bit more about this item before you buy, have a watch of this video review:

Other Free Shipping Deals @ eBay

While we don’t usually post deals from individual eBay sellers, I actually spotted this Motorola H17 Bluetooth Headset highlighted in eBay’s “free shipping deals” section. There, eBay features a range of hot items from reputable sellers. There are a lot more hot electronics deals in there too. But just watch out in case any of them are shipping from the US, remember your potential customs and duties, etc.

eBay Canada: Refurb. Jawbone Jambox Speaker $64 + Free Shipping

Posted by on July 10, 2014 at 10:00 PM

eBay Canada: Refurb. Jawbone Jambox Speaker $64 + Free Shipping

eBay Canada has a great deal for Canadians right now. Pick up an Authentic Original Jawbone Jambox Bluetooth Portable Speaker for $59.99 US = $63.88 CAN with free shipping.

The Jawbone ships from Ontario so there are no customs or duties to worry about. This is a manufacture refurbished Jawbone, so while it doesn’t come looking brand new out of that impossible-to-open packaging, what you are getting is a fully functional and amazing speaker at a very good deal.

The Jawbone speakers:

come in bulk (non-retail) packaging with all accessories included: Jawbone JAMBOX, microUSB charging cable, 3.5mm stereo cable, carrying case, AC adapter and user guide. Cosmetically they look brand new. This is not the Jambox Mini.

Now, why is this such a good deal? Well, let us look at the regular price of the full size Jawbone. I found them at Amazon.ca for $146 (cheapest) and prices only went up from there on other websites. Pick up a refurbished version and you are saving yourself a good chunk of money on one of the most powerful portable speakers on the market in this price range.

This speaker ranks a 4.2 /5 on Amazon with many people gushing over how great this speaker is. The battery life between recharges is good, the volume is excellent, and the sound quality also appears to be a hit. As one commenter said:

Great sound and amazing volume from such a small size. Hooked up the jawbone via bluetooth from my Android phone. I could adjust the sound settings from my phone. I was surprised by the bass when it caused the speaker vibrate on the counter. I took a phone call while using the Jambox and great hands free operation.

Over 240 of these units have sold already on eBay and supplies are limited. You can choose from grey, red, or black. All colours still appear to be in stock so get on this offer soon to get the greatest choice. I am usually an all-black sort of person, but the red is really attractive.

With free shipping and over $80 off the going price of this unit, I think it is a great deal. With refurbished products, the problems have already been fixed so you are getting a speaker that has essentially been gone over twice. I have had great success with refurbished products and am certainly considering buying one for myself.

eBay Canada: Up to 50% Off Tech at Newegg Canada

Newegg’s eBay store is offering up to 50% off tech currently. This is a sale that you might want to browse if you are in the market for a new laptop, headset, or other electronic device.

Newegg Canada is also selling this Patriot LX Series 64GB Class 10 Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC) Flash Card for only $29.99 (originally $49.99) with $4.99 shipping. I found the same card from a secondary seller on Amazon for around $60 including shipping. The Class 10 will give you the speed you need for your DSLR cameras and 64GB gives you plenty of space for large file sizes.

Check out these and other deals during Newegg Canada’s sale on eBay Canada. Shipping depends on the product and ranges from free to a few dollars from what I saw.

eBay Canada: Gold and Pearl Stud Earrings $14 ($75 Value)

Posted by on February 10, 2014 at 10:30 PM

eBay Canada: Gold and Pearl Stud Earrings $14 ($75 Value)

eBay Canada sports many fine bargains and jewelry deals. Right now you can pick up a pair of 10K Yellow Gold Freshwater Cultured 6-6.5mm White Pearl Stud Earrings for only $12.99 USD (approx $14.30 CAN) which have a value around $75. Seriously, try and go into your local jeweler and get that size of pearls on 10 karat gold studs and you will find the price substantially higher!

You get free shipping on these lovely little pearl earrings. They do ship in from Brooklyn, New York but since they cost under $20 you do not have to worry a bit about duty or customs.

The shape is semi-round and the size is really great for almost any size of female. They are not too big (and thus too heavy) and they are not so small they just disappear on the ear. Pearls are also the perfect earring because they look elegant and yet do not cost a fortune. They are classy and yet not outrageously pricy.

They also make a fantastic gift for a good friend, a lover, or someone you would like to be a future either one of those. They can make an equally good gift for your mother or your grandmother because pearls, like diamonds, are timeless.

Quantities are limited.

eBay Canada: 7.5mm Pearl Bracelet $10 (Save $30)

eBay Canada: 7.5mm Pearl Bracelet $10 (Save $30)

A seller on eBay Canada has a great deal on 7.5mm white freshwater pearl bracelets. Valued at around $40, they are being sold for $9.98 US (which roughly translates over to $10.90). Even though the price is in USD don’t fear; these bracelets ship from Vancouver.

There are three things that really attracted me to this deal:

  1. You get a freshwater pearl bracelet for around $10
  2. You get absolutely free shipping
  3. The product ships from within Canada, so there are no duty or customs charges

The bracelet is approximately 6.5 – 7″ in length with a gold plated clasp. The pearls are freshwater with an off round shape and are 7 – 7.5 mm in size. They are white with 100% nacre, moderate luster, and some natural flaws on the surface. They rank about an AA- in quality.

These make lovely gifts and look far more expensive than you are getting them for. If you are on a real budget after the holidays, this makes a fantastic gift idea for Valentine’s Day coming up.

eBay Canada: Discount Watches + Free Shipping @ Watch Vendor

eBay Canada: Discount Watches + Free Shipping @ Watch Vendor

Watch Vendor on eBay Canada is a Canadian seller of authentic designer watches at discount prices. All watches ship from within Canada and have free shipping.

I love watches! I have an ESQ by Movado watch which is my getting dressed up and going out to dinner watch. I also own an Aquaswiss watch with diamond studding that I got at a massive sale. It is actually my daily watch. I love the heft of it! I never have bought a watch at retail price because you can often find awesome deals online.

Watch Vendor has this Bulova Bangle Set White Dial Women’s Watch 96X111 which I am absolutely drooling over. It retailed for $250 and is listed currently at $185 US. You can also make an offer to the seller and see if they will accept a lower price! If I didn’t already own two watches I would be making an offer this second. I just adore it.

This men’s Toy Watch Mesh Stainless Steel Unisex Watch MH02SL reminds me of a sports car… both are pluses for me. It originally retailed for $225 and is on sale for $128 US. Again, you can make an offer to the seller and see if they will accept a lower price. It is a fabulous looking watch and would make a great gift.

The free shipping offer with all these watches really makes this deal sparkle in my eyes. For other free shipping with no minimum deals check out this page.

eBay Canada: Up To 50% Off Bedding @ Beehive Canada

eBay Canada and the seller Beehive Canada have teamed up to offer Canadians up to 50% off blankets for the coming cold months, with free shipping.

One of the best things for winter is a heated blanket. You can get a Sunbeam MicroPlush Heated Throw, Slate for $49.99 (was $89.99) with free shipping. Are you a sports fan? Then check out the Sunbeam Calgary Flames NHL Heated Throw for only $39.99 (was $79.99). They have many different teams available, but they are selling out quickly.

If you are looking for something to heat your entire bed, then it will be a bit more expensive. We have a queen size bed and have been considering a heated blanket for ages. This Sunbeam Premium RoyalMink Queen-Size Heated Blanket was $199.99 and is now $129.99. With it, I might just leave the heat off and keep the blanket on.

eBay Canada: Discounted Dooney & Bourke Boutique 30%+ Off

eBay Canada: Discounted Dooney & Bourke Boutique 30%+ Off

An authentic Dooney & Bourke discount boutique has just opened on eBay. They boast 30% off and more savings on Dooney & Bourke handbags, accessories, and more.

They do not list the original prices (so I am looking them up on Dooney.com) but the prices they do have seem decent for leather goods. This Dooney & Bourke DB Retro Satchel, Black is on sale for $113.46 CAN (approx). Shipping is $14.25 and they estimate duties/customs (which you pay at checkout) to be around $21. You are looking at around $150 total. If you were to buy this same bag directly from Dooney.com you would have to pay $218 US + shipping + customs.

The Dooney & Bourke Dillen II North/South Triple Zip, Black/Black is on sale for $74.94 CAN. Shipping costs $13.32 and duties/customs costs $14.63 and is charged upon checkout. There are no extra fees upon delivery. For this bag you will pay around $103 total. The same bag is $138 US on Dooney.com and you would still have to pay shipping and customs on top of that.

The extra fees for shipping and customs might scare you, but don’t let them! The price you get at checkout is the price you pay, and there are no extra import fees upon delivery. Even with the shipping and customs fees, you are saving a nice chunk of money off the original price for these bags. I know this brand is currently really hot and I was pleased as punch to find this deal.

Shipping varies per item.

4 Wedding Must-Haves You Can Make Then Sell

Posted by on April 1, 2013 at 8:00 PM

4 Wedding Must Haves You Can Make Then Sell

If you want to save money on your wedding, then be prepared for the term DIY to become a very important part of your vocabulary. That being said, once the wedding bells have stopped ringing, if you want to recoup some of your costs then the names eBay, Etsy, and Craigslist will also become very familiar to you. What’s the point of learning how to make boutonnieres out of ribbon and cake stands out of old plates and glasses if you can’t also start selling these unique handicrafts online for some extra cash? I’ve made a number of wedding essentials for my own wedding and you better believe that after I’ve said “I do” I’m gonna turn my skills for making chalkboard paint signs and bedazzled tea lights into a money-making side hustle. Here are a few of the most in demand wedding must-haves that you can make then sell online for a profit.

Cake stand

The wedding cake is a major part of the wedding experience, but most of the time you have to either rent or buy a cake stand and those things don’t come cheap. I’ve been on the look out for a reasonably priced cake stand to buy for weeks and I still haven’t found anything under $50. Instead, I’m going to make my own out of some old dishes, and lucky for me it’ll be the perfect touch of shabby-chic for my special day. Not only that, I’ve seen dozens of these same homemade cake stands on Etsy selling for $70 and up, so it should be a piece of cake to sell it later on. I found a great how-to guide on Pin Cookie’s blog too!

4 Wedding Must Haves You Can Make Then Sell

Cake topper

As silly as it may sound, the first thing I bought after getting engaged was my wedding cake topper. I spent $50 on a ceramic bride and groom high-fiving when I could have just made my own for under $5 with materials from the craft store. It may be too late for my wedding, but I bet I know a number of brides who would pay me at least $15 for one of these handmade creations. Thanks to Confetti Daydreams for the inspiration.

4 Wedding Must Haves You Can Make Then Sell

Boutonnieres

Flowers are expensive no matter what season you get married in, so making your own boutonnieres using ribbon or other fabric will save you a ton of cash. Moreover, many brides like to be unique when it comes to styling their groom and groomsmen, so it wouldn’t be difficult to sell these thrifty and fashionable accessories after the wedding. Polka Dot Bride and Hip Hostess have some great tutorials on how to make them, so make sure to check them out.

4 Wedding Must Haves You Can Make Then Sell

Garter

As cute as all of the different wedding garters are splashed all over Pinterest, the fact remains that you’ll only wear the thing for a day. After that it’s either sell it or keep it in a memory box for decades to come. That being said, spending more than $10 on an item that almost no one will see anyways just seems silly. If you follow A Beautiful Mess’ instructions, you can make your own with ease, and since the blogger had such a hard time finding a garter like this for her wedding, I bet you won’t have any trouble trying to sell these online to other brides too.
