eBay.co.uk logoFind hidden eBay local bargainsTool to find pick-up only deals

Ongoing

Our Local eBay Deals Mapper lets you find bargains if you're prepared to pick them up.

eBay sellers often specify items must be collected in person which means fewer bids.

But you can't normally search 'collection only' so put your postcode in and how far you're prepared to schlep and watch the gems pop up.

More info

It is an automated tool, so always compare prices elsewhere (try the Megashopbot) to check it's really worth it.

eBay.co.uk logoeBay: MoneySaving tips and tricks*Incl finding super-cheap local bargains & haggling

Ongoing

There are always ways to save money on eBay*, so even if there isn’t a cracking deal out there that works for you, don’t assume you can’t cut your costs further.

  • Find super-cheap local bargains. Sellers often specify items must be collected in person. As this often means fewer bids, there are bargains to be had. Our free Local eBay Deals Mapper tool will speedily track and map gems near you. 
  • Use spelling mistake spotters. Wrongly-spelt products attract fewer bids because many people miss them. A few specialist search sites take advantage of this and trawl eBay for all possible spelling mistake combinations. These include Fatfingers and Baycrazy.
  • Use tools to bag overlooked items. Often sellers start auctions at 99p or less. Many items go unspotted, staying at this super-low price. Lastminute Auction hunts for eBay auctions due to finish within an hour, but which still cost £1 or less. Baycrazy's Zero Bids tool finds auctions ending soon with no bidders.
  • Don't assume eBay's cheapest. Use shopbots (shopping robots) that whizz to scores of internet retailers to find the cheapest price. Our MegaShopBot.com tool auto-searches the best of these.
  • Try haggling. There's nothing wrong with asking for a discount, even if the listing doesn't show the 'make offer' logo. Haggling works best on buy-it-now listings, or auctions with a high start price and no bids – just be polite.
  • Buy on local Facebook groups. Many people harness Facebook’s power to sell to others in the local community. See our Facebook Selling Tips.
  • Want more? See our 40 eBay buying tips guide for more tricks and tools to hunt hidden bargains.

If you spot any hot deals out there we have missed (we are human after all!), please let us know in the MSE forum, email us at msedeals@moneysavingexpert.com or via MSE Facebook and Twitter @MSE_Deals .

eBay.co.uk logoeBay Black Friday deals*Incl kids' Converse for £15 (next cheapest £21)

Expired

Giant auction site eBay.co.uk* is releasing deals for Black Friday, including items across electronics, fashion and home and garden.

eBay's posting new deals on its Black Friday page daily and most items are being sold by retailers' eBay Shop, eg, AO.com, Superdry and ShopTo. The deals don't have an end date or time, so we suspect they'll just be running until stock is all gone.

Are the deals any good?

The deals we've researched so far made eBay the cheapest place we could find to buy online. However, last year some of its Black Friday items were cheaper elsewhere, and this is likely to happen again - so ALWAYS do your research before buying.

Current deals (Mon 28 Nov)

Here are some of the top deals we spotted, with the next cheapest we could find, when we last checked at 10.49am on Mon 28 Nov:

Important: Don’t allow yourself to be taken in by the hype around Black Friday and be sucked into buying something you don’t need or can’t afford. And always do your own price comparisons to ensure you are getting the best deal possible – don’t just take a retailer’s word for it.

For the rest of our Black Friday deals and analysis, see our Black Friday 2016 Deals page.

eBay.co.uk logo50% off final listing fees & 100 free listings*Selected eBay accounts only, until Mon 21 Nov

Expired

Auction website eBay is offering 50% off its final value fees (essentially its cut of the price you sell an item for), and 100 free listings for selected user accounts. If you're eligible, both offers will be valid till 11.59pm on Mon 21 Nov to enable you to list in time for Black Friday.

How to check if you'll get it

It should flash up on the screen if you are eligible for both offers after going through this eBay* link, or check your emails from eBay with details of the offer (you either get both or no offers at all). If you’re not eligible, you’ll see 'Unfortunately, this promotional offer is by invitation only'. You MUST activate the offer once you see it or it won’t work for you.

How many people will get it?

We asked eBay to confirm how many users are eligible, but it only said it is a “targeted offer” to certain customers, so the only way to find out is to check yourself. In a previous offer, 19 of the 20 people from MSE Towers who checked their eBay account were eligible, which shows it’s definitely worth trying.

Here are the two offers, available till 21 Nov (if you’re eligible):

  • 50% off final value fees. eBay usually takes 10% of the price you sell something for as its cut, but of that sum it’ll give you a 50% discount. So sell something for £20 and the fee is normally £2. With the offer it’ll be £1, so you keep £19 altogether.  
  • 100 free listings. As a private seller, you can already get 20 free eBay listings a month (excluding motors), so this could be a good if you've a lot to sell, as listings over this allowance normally cost 35p each.

See eBay's full T&Cs* for this offer.

Do I still have to pay PayPal fees?

PayPal fees (3.4% of total transaction, plus 20p) if your buyer pays by PayPal will still apply and won't be discounted. See eBay's fee explanation* to find out more.

Of course, if you are feeling particularly generous, you could always take your unwanted items to your local charity shop instead.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links.
