eBay Australia FAIL - Get $0 Off (BLOOM) special offer 15 May 2019

John Avis by | May 13, 2019 | eBay and PayPal

Sometimes you get special offers that seem too good to be true... But not this time.
I always keep an eye out for discount coupons from eBay Australia, but the one I received today, 13 May 2019, is a bit disappointing.

The email I received today from eBay says, "Get $0 Off* Expires 14 May, 2019 Coupon code: BLOOM *Terms & Conditions apply."

$0 Off? That doesn't sound very good. And what are the terms and conditions? And must I act quick so I can get $0 off before the deal expires?

Surprise, but this appears to be a mistake. When I click the link in the email it gives details on the BLOOM coupon code which appears to actually be if you buy two items you get 15% off the lower priced item (minimum spend A$75), although it is confusingly worded:

"The offer entitles you to 15% off the purchase price (excluding postage costs) of one item when you buy a second item listed on www.ebay.com.au."

Ah, no thanks, eBay.
