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.

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. Check other retailers, either using search engines or going direct, to be sure you're getting the cheapest price.
- 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.

Latest Expired Deals
15% off £20 eBay spend via code
Valid on 20 categories incl toys & games, smartwatches & clothing
If you go online to eBay*, you can get 15% off when you spend £20 or more using the code PRESENTS until 11.59pm on Thu 29 Nov. The code will work on items across 20 selected categories including laptops, video games, toys, clothing and furniture. See 'more info' below for a full list.
Usually when eBay runs codes similar to this, the items are sold by big brand outlets such as Argos, Hughes, Tesco etc. Some of the items included in this offer are from these outlets, but some are from other eBay sellers that are less familiar. For outlets, see our Discount Outlets page.
The maximum discount you can get is £50, so purchases of more than £330 will not receive the full 15% discount, and you can only use the code once per account (you'll need to be signed in to your eBay account, and paying via PayPal or credit/debit card). Scroll to the bottom of the page to see full T&Cs*.

eBay Black Friday deals
Offers change daily. Incl eBay stores for Argos, Currys etc
MSE Update 6.26am on Fri 23 Nov: We've not seen much change in eBay's deals this morning, but it looks as though it'll be offering 'Hot Right Now' deals every hour from 8am, rather than every four hours. We'll keep you updated if we spot anything good.
Giant auction site eBay* is releasing deals for Black Friday, including discounts on items across electronics, fashion and home and garden.
Like last year, eBay's posting new deals on its Black Friday page* daily and most items are being sold by other retailers using an eBay storefront, eg, Argos, AO.com, Currys PC World and Boohoo. The deals don't have an end date or time, so we suspect they'll just be running until stock is all gone.
It's also releasing 'Hot Right Now' deals at 8am, 12pm, 4pm and 8pm every day this week.
Are the deals any good?
So far, eBay's mostly been price-matching big retailers, making it joint cheapest. We haven't yet spotted anything that's cheaper or more expensive elsewhere.
Current deals (Wed 21 Nov)
Here are some deals we've spotted so far, with the next cheapest we could find, when we last checked at 3.27pm on Wed 21 Nov:
- Google Chromecast (3rd gen)* - now £20 via Argos (was £30). SAME PRICE at Currys*.
- Sega Megadrive standard games console with 81 games* - now £39.99 via Argos (was £59.99). SAME PRICE at Argos*.
- Hisense H43AE6100UK 43 Inch 4K Ultra HD HDR Smart WiFi LCD TV* - now £279 via Argos. SAME PRICE at AO.com*, Amazon* and Currys*.
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.
