There’s 57% off, and the kitchen set is now only $29.99 with free shipping to your home!!

(97% off) 50x Muffin/Cupcake Cases only $2.18 & Free Shipping @ eBay.ca!

eBay Canada: 10% Off Petro Canada & Chapters Gift Cards

Posted by on March 23, 2015 at 5:17 PM

eBay Canada: 10% Off Petro Canada & Chapters Gift Cards

A seller on eBay has teamed up with eBay to offer you a 10% discount on Petro Canada gift cards and Chapters Gift Cards. Petro Canada gift cards are on sale from $100 down to $90, for a $100 gift card. Chapters Canada gift cards are on sale from $50 down to $45, for a $50 gift card. You save 10% on each of these gift cards. These gift cards ship to you for free.

Over 300 Petro Canada gift cards have sold, and over 100 Chapters gift cards. The seller is giftcardstore – and they have 254 reviews. Currently, the seller has a 97% review rating. Many of the more negative reviews come from people who bought one of the Petro Canada discount cards (not gift cards) by people who did not understand that the card gave you a discount on fuel at the pump.

However, these are both gift cards. The gift cards are mailed out- not activated – so you will need to activate the card online. Do not activate the card before you receive it. When the card arrives, you need to visit https://ebay.giftcardactivate.com to activate your card.

I have never bought from this store before so I really can give you no personal feedback or assurances. Thankfully, when you pay with Paypal, you receive buyer protection. If you ever receive a product that does not match what you were sold – contact the seller and try to resolve it that way. If that is not going well, then you should file a Paypal dispute as soon as possible.

Given the number of purchases, this looks like a legitimate offer so I decided to blog it. Any deal I can score on fuel is appreciated as my monthly bill runs about $60. If you consider that over a year, I pay around $720 for fuel. That does not include any road trips I might take. I also want the Chapters Indigo gift card as i buy books and accessories from Chapters quite often. I could combine the Chapters gift card with one of their coupon codes to stack discounts.

There is a limit of five gift cards per person – while quantities last. Please read the fine print before purchasing. Shipping takes approximately five to seven business days. If you have bought from this seller before, please leave a comment telling us how that went.

eBay Canada: List Free Auction & Fixed Priced incl. Fashion

Posted by on October 27, 2014 at 5:00 PM

eBay Canada: List Free Auction & Fixed Priced incl. Fashion

eBay Canada currently has a list for free event on. You can list up to 10,000 things free through auction or fixed priced listing. The fixed priced listings are now open to fashion, collectables, and other categories that are usually excluded. This promotion also gives you 10-day listings for free.

I am pretty stoked about this offer! It is really three promos in one so let me sort this out for you:

  1. You regularly get 50 free listings (auction or fixed price). With this promotion, you can list up to 10,000 items (consider this unlimited).
  2. Usually, up to 7-day listings are free. With this promotion, you can also list your items free for 10-days.
  3. Free fixed price listings usually exclude popular categories like fashion, collectables, and more. With this promotion, all those categories are included.

I sell 99% off my items in fashion, so I usually have to pay if I want a fixed-priced listing instead of an auction. That costs me 30 cents, which adds up if you are listing a whole bunch of items. 10-day durations also cost extra (40 cents, for auctions), so you can save a bunch by upgrading your auction to a longer duration with this promotion.

Here I am yammering on about saving cents by listing stuff on eBay and you are wondering WHY this is a deal. I sell stuff on eBay. Stuff I no longer wear, no longer need, and a lot of stuff I bought on final sale that never did fit properly. I save money by not paying eBay fees when I list my products.

Last time I blogged about an eBay deal, I gave you my August and September figures. While I did not do a lot of new listing in October, I did save a bit of money and I made a ton of money:

  • Spent on insertion fees: $0.97
  • Saved on insertion fees: $2.90
  • Money made: $352.98

Did I mention I had a very successful month on eBay? It was lovely. Usually I list a bit more than I did last month, as my previous months I have saved around double that month but I had some higher value items so less listings. However, with this promotion I have just gone on a listing spree. I have already listed seven items and will be listing at least another three before the promo is over.

Make a little money, save a little money, and check out this little offer at eBay Canada. Click through the above link to activate the promotion.

eBay Canada: Affinitas Parfait Charlotte Bra – Only $30 incl. Shipping

Posted by on October 14, 2014 at 7:00 PM

eBay Canada: Affinitas Parfait Charlotte Bra   Only $30 incl. Shipping

I am an international bargain hunter as you may know, and one of my favourite places to find a deal is eBay. I recently found a fantastic deal on the Affinitas Parfait Charlotte Bra that retails for $59 in most Canadian stores. You can buy it from a seller on eBay for only $21.99 US + $4.99 US shipping = $26.98 US. Right now that is about C $24.66 + C $5.60 = $30.26 CA.

Let us go over why this is such an awesome deal first, before I wax poetic over the bra. Butterfly Collection Canada sells this bra (different colour) for $59. Forever Yours Canada sells the bra for $69.99 (+ shipping). HerRoom, the big international bra place in the sky (as I like to call them), sells the bra for $44.79 (+ shipping and tax/duty).

As this deal from 2HotBrazil (homem) on eBay includes shopping and out does the competition by a mile, I have to say it is a fantastic deal. It is so good a deal; that I bought one in my size a few weeks ago and it just came in. It arrived duty-free to my home so I am more than pleased with my purchase. I would buy another if they still had my size in stock. I am saving about $30 or 50% by purchasing this bra on eBay.

This bra now ranks in my top two bras because the cup fit is just fantastic. The gore tacts beautifully and all my tissue is where it is supposed to be – supported and encapsulated. The push up effect of this bra is just so yummy! I also love the retro pattern to it. I do find the band is very firm if you wear the same band size as your under bust measures. Either take the time to break the bra in properly, buy a bra extender, or you might want to consider going up a band size. However, if you wear say a 32″ band and you measure 30″ or 31″ then you should be good.

Plenty of sizes are still left in stock. Band sizes range from 28 to 40 (size 36 bands are out of stock currently). This bra is made for larger cup sizes, so it starts at a D and goes up to a JJ. It is a fantastic buy at this price and it appears to be well made. I expect this bra to hold up to the rigors of bust bouncing for a long time.

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)

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

*** Contest now closed, winner was Moose Jolene! ***

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.

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!
