Test Drive PayPal's New Site To Get A Free $5 Credit (Or Choose Among Others Deals) - EXPIRED

7 September 2014

paypal Want a free $5 credit at PayPal? Then test drive their new site now. It only takes a couple of minutes and you also have the choice between either a $5 credit or a discount on other sites like eBay, DealXtreme, ShoeBuy, Deezer or Champs Sports.

The test drive begins by asking which your are more likely to buy the next time you choice and have the choice between eight options like tech, music, travel, education, etc. I doubt it matters which choice you go with as once you proceed to the next step, PayPal outlines the dangers of buying online merchandise directly with a credit card when instead, you can simply sign into your PayPal account without exposing your financial information.

Personally, that is definitely an aspect of online shopping that I have always been apprehensive about because I certainly wouldn't want to unknowingly have my credit card information stolen by some malware software or what if the website I'm shopping at gets hacked?

PayPal's test drive then outlines the benefits of an account with them like: security, purchase protection and speed -- all very convincing aspects of course.

Once you're done with the test drive, then you will be given the option 6 deals:

  • $5 PayPal credit
  • eBay: Up to 70% off eBay Deals
  • Deezer: 3-month subscription for just $0.45 USD/ month
  • DealXtreme: up to 50% off
  • ShoeBuy.com: 10% off everything + free shiping
  • Champs Sports: 17% off orders over $120 USD

There is a limit of one per customer and you only get to choose once, so choose carefully! If you end up choosing any deal other than the PayPal one, then you can always check out the PayPal coupon codes on the Bargainmoose forum. There are currently two active ones on there: one for a $5 credit with activation of a PayPal prepaid Mastercard and the other for $50 off an order over $400.

Personally, I have had an account with PayPal for a couple of years now and it really is a breeze to use for both personal and business use. I have noticed that a lot of small business have begun accepting PayPal but I wasn't sure if a large company like Best Buy would and to my surprise, I discovered that yes, even they accept PayPal!

Moosers, do you use PayPal? Which offer will you be choosing?
