Win £1k with PayPal
PayPal have launched a Christmas promotional campaign which will enable five lucky winners to “Win Christmas”. You might have received the email today. Basically, it’s a prize draw for some £1k prizes.
It’s quite simple and you may as well enter if you’ll be buying anything using Paypal over the next few weeks. You just visit the landing page here and sign in. And then you’ll be automatically entered into a draw for the cash every time you use PayPal to pay for something.
Of course, there are ample Ts & Cs. There’s one exclusion I spotted which will be of interest to many of you. You can’t enter using a PayPal business account.
Might be useful to someone. Though I wonder how many regular readers of Tamebay DON’T have an PayPal business account. Those who don’t sell on ebay, I suppose.
Some may have other halves or family members who can take advantage.
we pay our ebay fees via paypal does that qualify?
I rarely shop online for gifts other than eBay which often have the very best deals for presents, along with Amazon and DVD retailers like Base.com. Because I spend hugely on eBay, each and every week since 2006, I always use PayPal for eBay transactions and have clicked on the ‘enter now’ button a few times already to enter into the prize draw.
However, I am convinced that the only real way to win anything in this Xmas draw, is if you spend generously on one of their ‘recommended’ retail sites that uses PayPal – eBay might be included in these recommendations, yet don’t see it listed at all in their automated list of recommended online retailers. As I don’t have a spare few hundred to splash out on one single transaction (anywhere online), I doubt that I will even qualify – despite being a long standing and loyal consumer through them.
I get the feeling that this prize draw a little like ‘offer-click’ where you are obliged to part with huge sums of money in order that you receive the prize money – regardless of how large it might be.
I could be very wrong indeed, yet appears this way as all of the recommended online retailers they are wanting you to spend, all outside of my individual budget range – I can’t afford a new car or television for instance. I don’t even know anyone I can buy and send an electronic gift, so not sure how this is going to give me any chance at all of winning anything.
IT WOULD BE NICE TO SEE A LIST OF WINNERS FROM PAYPAL WE ARE INTO THE THIRD WEEK OF NOV BUT WHO.S WON ANY PRIZES AND WHAT SHOP DID THEY GO TO TO BUY BET NOT EBAY
