After spending some time shopping on eBay attempting to make up an order of £100 or more to qualify for the 10% off (PICKME10) discount promo that they were running on the UK site on 29/30th September 2019, I had finally exceeded the £100 value needed to check out and get the 10% off. This was at about eight PM 30/09/19 but to my surprise the coupon wouldn't work. I contacted support to ask them why it was no longer valid. Apparently for some unforeseeable reason it had to be withdrawn early, the first time in eBay history according to the support staff member I was speaking to. They had had quite a number of complaints but there was nothing they could do, no recompense or correction was offered.
I quite often advertise eBay promos on here and while I wouldn't want to put anybody off, what normally is quite a good deal, I just thought I'd put it out there as it seems a bit weird that they would do this and for what reason?
