    Because they want you to buy me a present!

    Hi, I got a similar thing a year ago on an eBay account I hadn't used for ages. It's your lucky day.

    I also got one today but not had an email etc just noticed it when looking to buy something it said 'get £20 off'....had a few over the years and always gratefully received.

    I had this for £15 and another for 15%...i rang them and they said they pick random accounts to have the code. Both mine worked...happy day..treat yourself...use within the date and to get the most out of it make sure you get £20 worth of goods, if less than that you will lose the rest as its a one time redemption code only so fill your basket and then pay....

    just logged into my ebay account and was excited to see a new message saying congratulations

    opened the message up and it said

    congratulations you have been carefully selected to take part in our online survey!!

    it was a goodwill gesture because of recent security issues and having to change your password ...i got £20 as well

    Thank you for your patience during the recent password reset issue.

    As a valued customer we know you wanted us to fix this issue straight away, and since day one we have been working hard to do just that:



    Once we learned customers’ data was impacted, we immediately began notifying customers through email and news alerts, although sending millions of emails did take some time.


    We re-engineered large sections of our site within days to allow all our customers to securely reset their password whilst keeping eBay running. Unfortunately, the size of this task meant that some customers experienced delays completing their reset.


    Our customer service teams have been working hard to help users. Call volumes were up significantly so we pulled in all of our teams to help, although some customers still experienced longer-than-usual wait times when calling in.

    This disruption is not what people should expect from eBay. As a measure of our appreciation for your continued loyalty, we’ve included a voucher below to spend on whatever you would like on eBay.

    We hope you enjoy spending this voucher which we’ve tried to make as easy as possible to use: all you need to do is to sign into eBay from the account this email is addressed to, pay with PayPal, and use the voucher code below during checkout .

    I did not get one

    Did you change you passwords when this all happened or recently?

    some people got £20
    some people regularly get £20

    i got nothing on either of my accounts of great standing (combined positives of 100%, almost 1000+, sell on both accounts)

    and I got screwed more than most as these were accounts opened a decade or more ago, when I had far less secure password (i.e. something that was probably used elsewhere)
