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.

It is an automated tool, so always compare prices elsewhere (try the Megashopbot) to check it's really worth it. logoeBay: MoneySaving tips and tricks*Incl finding super-cheap local bargains & haggling


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 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.

Expired Deals logoCo-op Electrical eBay outlet 20% off code*Valid on 1,000 items, incl Dyson vacuums and Xbox One X


If you go online to the Co-op Electrical eBay outlet*, you can get 20% off a single transaction with a £60 minimum spend using the code P20CP until 11.59pm on Thu 15 Mar. You have to pay via PayPal to get the discount.

The maximum discount you can get is £60, so purchases of more than £300 will not receive the full 20% discount, and you can only use the code once per account (you'll need to be signed in to your eBay account). See full T&Cs*.

When we price-checked a selection of items on Tue 13 Mar, we found the code made Co-op Electrical’s outlet the cheapest place to buy most of them:

  • Dyson V8 Animal cordless vacuum cleaner*, £308.99 (£368.99 before code is applied), next cheapest, £309.90 at Go Electrical
  • Xbox One X console*, £409 (£469 before code is applied), next cheapest, £419.85 at Simply Games
  • Dyson V7 Motorhead cordless vacuum cleaner*, £215.19 (£268.99 before code is applied), next cheapest, £249.99 at Leekes. SOLD OUT
  • Samsung 40 inch LED Full HD TV Freeview HD*, £239.20 (£299 before code is applied), next cheapest, £309 at Reliant Direct SOLD OUT
  • Daewoo 23L 800W retro microwave oven*, £50.39 (£62.99 before code is applied), next cheapest, £62.97 at Amazon SOLD OUT

However, we noticed some items that would still be cheaper elsewhere – even with the discount – so whatever you’re buying, you should always do your own price comparisons first. logo£1 max final value fees & 100 free listings*Selected eBay accounts only, until Mon 5 Feb


Auction website eBay is offering £1 maximum 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, the offer will be valid from Sun 4 Feb till Mon 5 Feb but you can sign up now.

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. 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 by clicking on 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 similar targeted offer, of the 20 people from MSE Towers who checked their eBay account, 19 were eligible, which shows it’s definitely worth trying.

Here's how the offer breaks down:

  • £1 maximum final value fees. eBay usually takes 10% of the price you sell something for as its cut, but of that sum it’ll only charge you a maximum of £1. 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.

Argos logo10% off at Argos eBay outlet*On £40+ purchases. Eg, £45 Fitbit Flex


If you go online to the Argos eBay outlet*, you can get 10% off purchases over £40 in one transaction with the code PAYDAY10 until 11.59pm on Thu 1 Feb. Delivery starts from £3.95, or you can click and collect selected items in Argos stores (find your nearest*).

You must pay via PayPal to get the discount - it's free and easy to set up - and you can't combine the code with other offers.

Examples of strong discounts we found when using the code on Tue 30 Jan include:

If the electrical or gaming item you're after is out of stock, it could be worth checking with Tesco Direct for its £5-£20 off codes.

Dyson logoDyson 20% off refurbished vacuums code*Valid on 25+ models and other products via its eBay outlet


You could clean up with this deal if you’re looking for a new vacuum cleaner. If you go online to the Dyson eBay outlet*, you can get 20% off a single transaction with no minimum spend using the code P20DYSON until 11.59pm on Thu 2 Nov.

Most of the products featured in the promotion are vacuum cleaners refurbished by Dyson and come with one or two-year guarantees, although the code's also valid on some new items including fans and accessories.

You have to pay via PayPal to get the discount, which is valid on more than 40 products, and you can only use the code once per account.

While Dyson's told us stock’s plentiful across the product range, individual items may sell out, so it's worth going quickly if you've got your eye on something.

Discounts we found using the code on Tue 31 Oct include:

The maximum discount you can get is £160, which means purchases of £800+ will only be discounted by £160 no matter how much you spend (see full T&Cs*).

use the money mantras

Before spending, use Martin's Mantras. If you answer 'NO' to any, Don't buy!

Skint? ask:
  • Do I need it?
  • Can I afford it?
not skint? ask:
  • Will I use it?
  • Is it worth it?
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.
