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.

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. 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.
  • 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 .

Expired Deals

eBay.co.uk logo1 max final value fees & 100 free listings*Selected eBay accounts only, until Mon 7 May

Expired

If you're decluttering this bank holiday weekend, 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 Fri 4 May till Mon 7 May 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.

AO.com logo10% off at AO eBay outlet*Eg, PS4 Pro console and FIFA 18 for 314 (next cheapest, 349)

Expired

If you go online to the AO.com eBay outlet*, you can get 10% off purchases over £40 in one transaction with the code P10MAY until 11.59pm on Fri 4 May. Delivery's free on all items to UK mainland (Northern Ireland is excluded from this offer).

The maximum discount you can get is £250, which means purchases of £2,500+ would only be discounted by £250 no matter how much you spend, and you can only use the code once per account. See full T&Cs*.

Examples of strong discounts we found when using the code on Thu 3 May include:

Dyson logoDyson 20% off refurbished vacuums code*Valid on 15 vacuums and other products via its eBay outlet

Expired

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 PDYSON20 until 11.59pm on Thu 5 Apr.

The code's valid on all items in the outlet. Most are vacuum cleaners refurbished by Dyson, which it says are as good as new, 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 and you can only use the code once per account. Some examples we found using the code at 10am on Wed 4 Apr:

  • V6 cordless vacuum cleaner* - £127.99 (£159.99 before code). Cheapest we found it new, £188 at multiple retailers.
  • Cinetic Big Ball Musclehead vacuum cleaner* - £175.99 (£219.99 before code). Cheapest we found it new, £269.70 at Amazon.
  • Dyson V6 Total Clean cordless vacuum cleaner* - £187.99 (£234.99 before code). Cheapest we found it new, £223.99 at Amazon. SOLD OUT
  • Cinetic Big Ball Animal vacuum cleaner* - £191.99 (£239.99 before code). Cheapest we found it new, £254.89 at Donaghy Bros. SOLD OUT
  • V8 Absolute cordless vacuum cleaner* - £271.99 (£339.99 before code). Cheapest we found it new, £339.99 at Leekes. SOLD OUT
  • V6 Trigger handheld vacuum cleaner* - £87.99 (£109.99 before code). Cheapest we found it new, £119 when you click and collect at Tesco Direct (£122 delivered). SOLD OUT

Based on our checks, prior to using the 20% off code it was actually cheaper to buy one vacuum cleaner new than it was refurbished as Dyson had cut the price to price-match a competitor’s offer. However, when we looked, using the code always made buying the refurbished models cheapest.

Of course, we can't be sure this will always be the case, and prices change regularly, so we recommend doing your own price comparisons to make sure you're getting the best deal before you part with any cash.

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

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*).

eBay.co.uk logoEXTRA 20% off 'secret' eBay electrical outlets*Code for 9 brands incl Vax, Bang & Olufsen, KitchenAid

Expired

If you go online to eBay* you can get 20% extra off selected big-brand electricals, already at outlet prices, when you spend £30+ and enter the code P20SPRING until 11.59pm on Thu 22 Mar. These little-known outlets are official, and brands include Vax, Bang & Olufsen and KitchenAid.

What's good is you can use the code on absolutely everything in each of the nine outlets. Yet as is the nature of outlets, there's not always a complete product range and stock can be limited.

The maximum discount you can get is £100, so purchases of more than £500 will not receive the full 20% discount, and you can only use the code twice per account (you'll need to be signed in to your eBay account, and paying via PayPal or credit/debit card). See full T&Cs*.

We price-checked a few items from each of the retailers and generally found the code made their eBay outlet cheapest. Examples of strong discounts we spotted at 8pm on Tue 20 Mar:

However, we reckon some items will still be cheaper elsewhere - even with the discount - so whatever you're buying, you should always do your own price comparisons first.

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

Expired

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.

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.
