Use this with the £99 free interest for four months offer here too. Starts in may but people claim it has started already
Just to clarify, it's eBay that probably refund you the monies rather than PayPal.

Call me a Scotsman, but surely if this is by invitation only then everyone who qualifies will be notified already?

If this is the case, why post it as a deal when people that qualify will know already and everyone else can't do anything about it as they haven't received the email?

Actually some users will hate this, because it's invitation only.
FREEZING COLD, got this invitation last year. Signed up with the invitation and make the required spend, didn't get the £10 reward during the time frame, phoned up (because even though there is a section on support tickets to make a query about PayPal credit promotions, they just tell you to phone up) and was told I wasn't one of the first 25,000 to take up the offer so I get nothing. Then cancelled PayPal credit but the application still is a hit on the credit record.

They make it your default payment type going forward and there is nothing you can do about it other than close the PayPal account and make a new one.


I've used it before and my default payment did not change. You can also change your default whenever you like.

Isn't there interest if you only spend £30
Of those first 25,000 customers referred to at 2., only those who then spend £30 or more on one basket within the Competition Period, using PayPal Credit as a funding source (a "Qualifying Transaction"), will be rewarded with £10 off a PayPal transaction (the "Reward").

PayPal Credit? Is that PayPal's credit card? Or just using a PayPal balance?

Not if you pay it off straight away.
Is this a credit card 💳 and if so then surely applying for and taking on an extra credit card is bad for your credit rating?

You've got me doubting it now! I assumed it works the same as a credit card, as long as you pay the full balance within 30 days you won't be charged interest. Definitely worth double checking though.

It does show as a credit card on your credit report yes. Having credit doesn't necessarily have a negative impact on your credit score though.

I think I'll pass. I avoid interest due to cultural reasons £10 isn't worth the risk.

If the interest is instant then I think this is a bit naughty by PayPal to be honest.

Yeah, I use my card all the time and pay the lot off each month entirely, never get any interest added, keeps your credit rating good too (I think!)

I'm hoping to apply for a mortgage soon and I already have 4 credit cards. Each with pretty generous limits. I doubt a fifth card would work in my favour. But I understand that going from 1 to 2 cards or perhaps 2 to 3 might not be such a negative.

In my experience, while initial application may have a minor negative impact, having more unused available credit actually boosts your score. But yeah, I'd play it safe if I were you aswell.
I also got this email. However as far as I was aware PayPal Credit has a minimum balance of £99, so you'd have to spend that much or more either in this transaction or already have the outstanding balance to actually get the £10 off. Seems a bit strange if that is the case. :/

This is like a credit card, as long as you clear the balance each billing cycle, there will be no interest.

I can confirm that paypal credit shows on your report and as long as you are only using 25% or less of your credit limit then it helps your credit report.

Did anyone ever get paid out for the 10 transactions in October offer? I never got anything even though I’d signed up and made over 10 transactions

Should have been £20
& I don't think its works on eBay

Erm, no they don't, not for me anyway? I got PayPal credit before Christmas when they were doing a similar offer, changed my default payment method till I'd spent the required ammount (£100 I think?), then changed it back again afterwards. Not had a problem at all.

Got this offer yesterday too so seems it's certainly worth not using it so they keep sending you these.
