    Ebay Australia has an interesting banner on their site that says find it cheaper in 48 hours and get the difference + 5% back

    Also guess what - NO REALLY They have another voucher/sale on again with at least 2 Codes :
    eBay.com.au - Pages | Buyer coupons | platypus | &
    eBay.com.au - Pages | Buyer coupons | penny5 |

    Penny5 gives 5% off a spend of $30 AUD & platypus give you 10% off a spend of $50.00 AUD Both end on the 8th July.

    [Edit - OH snap - we were typing at the same time LOL]

    Thanks MEEEGGGAAATTTRRROOONNN. I feel silly asking since Toys & Hobbies isn't a specifically excluded category, but I'm being told "This code can't be applied to your order." for an order totalling $53.90 USD. It would usually say I don't meet a minimum amount if that were the case. I am I doing something wrong here?

    Ebay must really love Australia all of a sudden. You guys are getting a flash sale on a weekly basis.

    Only seems to work on an Australia account for me - when I try the USA & UK - I get the error message "There is a problem please try later" - it doesn't say it's invalid it just doesn't work.

    If anyone one else has tried a UK experimental check out ?
    I'll go try logging in on the Australia site with a UK ID see if that works.

    [edit]

    OK I tried some things the USA account can checkout on the Australia site and allow the voucher to work.
    & The Australian Account can checkout on eBay.com and work (as well as the Australian site).

    So the advantage of signing in to the American site with the Australian ID is I can then click through the cashback site too.

    But not the UK one isn't working as well.
    I can use the Austrlian account on the UK site too - but the UK account seems to not be currently allowing the voucher for a UK registered account.

    Topcashback has 1.1 on UK site and 1.5% on USA site so clicking through via Topcashback.com is more advantageous this time.

    I really should find an Australian cashback site too for eBay - but when I was researching them there was so many I just didn't have the time to wade through them all to find one with eBay Australia cashback. - There likely is one though.

    Nice that it's possible to get these vouchers working via dot com so yah cashback - though ideally - I want Cashback, Voucher and Nectar or eBay bucks to work.
    But I wouldn't get those if you are on the Australian site with a non-australia account when paying.

    Sucks!
    Everything sucks here.
    Bad music in clubs. The music you hear here in clubs, well you can't dance on it.
    I like more electric music for dancing but they always fak up some crap r&b music.
    I have nothing against r&b, but like i said, the dj's here fak up those musics.

    Other nightlife is when you're in Amsterdam you can:
    go to the red lights.
    get some weed to smoke. and smoke them in front of the police, they won't arrest you. they would love some but can't since they are on the job.
    and gamble to your heart content.

    These are the nightlife things you can do here that i know.
    Just don't try dancing in clubs.

    eBay's just taking pity on us Aussies and giving us coupons to nullify the new 10% tax we have to pay on top of product and shipping cost as of this financial year ;)

    The PLATYPUS voucher doesn't work! I just bought a new graphics card here in London and I tried to use the voucher since it's eligible for eBay.co.uk. But I just get an error message saying "This code can't be applied to your order." So I tried signing in to eBay.com.au and paying from there as you recommended. Again, I get the same error message! What am I doing wrong?

    You have to be either registered as a USA or Australian address on an ebay.com or EBay.com.au account (then alter you mailing address) otherwise it doesn't work.

    An Australian Account works on EBay.com
    and an American Account works on eBay.com.au

    a UK registered account doesn't work on ebay.com.au for this voucher.

    When it says it's valid for .com and .co.uk - it means and Austrlain can shop on the other sites & get the discount - it doesn't mean it works for a UK account on the UK site.

    Why the American accounts partly work I have not clue - they just do.

    Uh... thanks. But it still doesn't work. I added an Australian address to my UK account and tried to use the voucher again. It still says code invalid. I retried from eBay AU and got the same error message. If I create a new account on eBay AU, I won't have my purchase history on it. How do I apply the voucher for something I already bought?

    You would need to have an eBay US or Australia account to be eligible, and then add your residential UK address for shipping. Sorry, you're doing it the other way around: ebay UK account buying on the .com/.com.au site.
    Vouchers are applied to the checkout total before payment; you can't apply a voucher if you've already paid.

    Glad Australia’s has gotten some love, but now it’s time for these codes to reshift their focus back as ‘normal.’ ;) 

    didnt get an alert here, but glad you posted it on another thread....
    Primosale it is!!!
    (My patience on not spending eBay bucks yet will have paid off) :D
