Ok HUKD adds a referal link when you post a deal link to add to the site's coffers.

Original link was: anywhere.ebay.co.uk/bro…pon

You still have to buy something and pay for an item to get the fiver!

Great if your already after something on ebay.

I like the message from microsoft "might contain programs from ebay".

Mozilla has hijacked my taskbar, good god and won't let me pin IE links lol

So I need Windows and IE9, don't think you could pay me £100 never mind a fiver to have those.

WTF???

I think you should update your title to reflect the fact that is not a definate, you have a 1/30,000 chance, which sounds a lot but is a drop in the ocean comapred to how many people in the UK use ebay.
They may even be run out already......
Good post though, thanks.

It has nothing to do with that deal

I just done all that, pinned, and bought a water bottle cage for 1.28. Lets wait and see if i get anythink., doubt i will thou
Also went throught topcash back to ebay. Selected my item, put as a watch item. Then switch to the pinned ebay, about the same time . So hopefully one or both will track

Ebay trying to help desperate MS to promote IE9, which no-one wants. Good Luck with it all.

will this still work if Chrome is my default browser?

How do you work out that you only have a 1 in 30000 chance? They are offering 30000 vouchers, so a 1 in 30000 chance of getting one would imply that 30000x30000 = 900000000 people will be taking up this. So 900 million people in the UK (excluding NI) will be taking them up? Don't think so.

I did see in an email from ebay, they are making the fees simpler to work out for you, they are putting them up to "JUST" 10% on nearly everything, next step will be to make it easier on PayPal they will make that 10% fees :-)

Ok, so I didnt quite put it right,
What I meant was each person can have 1 voucher and there are 30,000 of them.
When those 30,000 are gone they are gone (to the first 30,000 who did it), hence it not being a defo.

Well if the response on this board is anything to go by then i'd say it's more like a 100% chance!

Whats wrong with that? obviously microsoft are co-sponsoring this giveaway ($5 on ebay.com (USA)) and it involves their software...

Nobody complains about instaling coupon printing software, akin to this which is much less monitored for nasties, less easily uninstalled, and only usable for a single product.

This is a paypal voucher that can be used anywhere that accepts it (not just ebay)!!

are you voting on this deal?
