    Hello,
    I have on average about 50k in ebay purchases a month for my small business. I was wondering if any of you knew a way to get any type of cash back from eBay through all my purchases. I currently have 4 ebay buying accounts and use ebay bucks (2% back on purchases), but those cap out at once you reach 500$ and you only get paid once every quarter.
    I was getting a lot of money back when I used big crumbs as well but now those sites are not partnered with eBay.
    If anyone knows then please let me know!
    Thanks

    You can use a few different strategies here.

    1. If you use a pp debit/cc card you auto get 1 or 2% cash back paid out monthly for everything you spend using that card.
    2. Shop around cash back cc cards online that pay you back monthly.

    If you combine your ebay bucks, plus your 1/2% cash back on PP card, plus the CC used to make those purchases (which you have linked to the PP card) usually you can get 1 - 3% back that would be a combined cashback method of 5% plus 500 which would get you a 2,500+500 ebay bucks for 3K. 3K back isnt bad if worked right...


    Another method would be for you to contact all of your vendors directly.
    Explain to them that you would like to buy direct and would they be willing to give you discount of 8% or more since you are undercutting ebay and then in addition to that use the cc + cashback CC method and get a 8% discount plus 5% cashback on top of that...

    either should get you back more in your pocket then what you are getting back now... good luck...

    Isn't that risky paying them directly? Like couldn't they take your money and dip.

    If you are looking at credit cards, Fidelity has a true 2% cash back AMEX that you get deposited into an account of your choice every month - which no limits on the amount of ccash back.
