eBay Plus Weekend 2023: FAQ

What is eBay Plus Weekend?

In late May each year, eBay sellers band together to offer up a sweet selection of deals across a range of categories. With offers on tech, homewares, clothes and more, eBay Plus Weekend is one of the best times to pick up some new gear at a discounted price.

In the past, eBay Plus Weekend has also offered limited-time daily deals that launched at around 10am AEST each morning. These daily deals are usually in limited supply, and while eBay has yet to confirm this will be returning for Plus Weekend 2023, we’ve got our fingers crossed.

When is eBay Plus Weekend 2022?

For 2023, eBay Plus Weekend will start on Thursday, May 25 and continue right through until 11.59pm AEST on Sunday, May 28. Anyone will be able to score a bargain during eBay Plus Weekend, but it’s likely that the top deals will be exclusive to eBay Plus members. In the past, most of these Plus-exclusive deals have only been available in limited quantities, so if you see something you want, it’s best to jump on it to avoid disappointment.

Which sellers will participate in eBay Plus Weekend 2023?

We don’t know for sure exactly which sellers will participate in this year’s eBay Plus weekend, but we can take a few guesses by looking at last year’s offerings.

In 2022, we saw The Gamesmen and Razer offer some big discounts on games and gaming accessories, while Microsoft’s eBay store jumped in with discounts on laptops and PC peripherals. If you were looking for new tech for your home, The Good Guys eBay offered deals on smart home gadgets, while Dyson eBay offered up some nice deals on cordless vacuum cleaners. 

While we might not see all of these sellers join in 2023, these are some good eBay stores to keep bookmarked for when the deals start rolling in.

What is eBay Plus?

eBay Plus is eBay’s very own subscription service which unlocks additional savings for  members, as well as free shipping on eligible Plus products. It’ll set you back either AU$4.99 per month or AU$49 per year, but if you’re a new member there’s a 30-day free trial to take advantage of before fully committing.

Our sister site TechRadar has a complete guide on what’s included in an eBay Plus membership so you know what to expect before fully committing. Additionally, while a monthly subscription will give you the option to unsubscribe at any time with minimal cost, eBay will also give annual subscribers a 14-day cooling off period if you’ve forgotten to cancel before your next charge date.

How much is eBay Plus in Australia?

There’s two options for an eBay Plus subscription in Australia — AU$4.99 per month or AU$49 per year.

Huawei MateBook D14 | i5 / 8GB RAM / 512GB SSD | AU$799 AU$619 on Microsoft eBay (AU$180 off)

Microsoft's eBay store offered up a stack of bargains from peripherals to laptops during 2022’s Plus Weekend. At the time, this older laptop picked up a AU$180 discount for Plus members, bringing it down to a nice AU$619. Note that this particular laptop had a 10th-gen Intel i5 chip, and we're now up to 13th-gen. That means we could possibly see some 11th or 12th gen laptops picking up some big savings in this next sale.

It's much easier to score a PlayStation 5 in 2023, and if you're looking to add more in-person players to your game, additional controllers are a must! During the Plus Weekend sale in 2022, the PS5 DualSense controller scored AU$38.60 off for eBay Plus members, making it simple to add that extra player to your game.

Apple AirPods (3rd Gen) | AU$279 AU$189 on eBay (AU$90 off)

During last year’s eBay Plus Weekend, this was one of the lowest prices we’d seen for the third-gen Apple AirPods. This deal was exclusive to Plus members, and a limited quantity was available – they also sold out rather quickly. We often see discounted AirPods during eBay sales, so we won’t be surprised if a similar deal turns up this year.

Beats Fit ProAU$299AU$199 on eBay

Beats Fit Pro | AU$299 AU$199 on eBay (AU$100 off)

This was another incredible deal for eBay Plus members during last year’s sale, where the Beats Fit Pro got AU$100 slashed off their RRP. It proved to be a popular deal as these workout-friendly earbuds sold out. With this in mind, keep an eye out for more deals like this.

Dyson V7 Motorhead Origin | AU$599 AU$379 on Dyson eBay (AU$220 off)

There were a number of Dyson deals during the last eBay Plus Weekend, but we think this was one of the best. It came on the V7 Motorhead Origin, which is an older model from Dyson, but the price makes it one of the most affordable options from the retailer. We’re hoping for some better deals on newer models this time around, such as the Dyson V10.
