If you’re not already an eBay Plus member and you’re hankering for a PlayStation 5, you should strongly consider signing up this week. From September 23 to September 30, new eBay Plus users will have the chance to win one of 48 PlayStation 5 prize packs valued at over $1,600 by entering a text-based prize draw.
Each pack contains a PlayStation 5 console, four games (FIFA 22, Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Far Cry 6), an additional black DualSense controller, a PS5 Pulse 3D wireless headset, a PS5 media remote, a PS5 HD camera and a PS5 DualSense charging station.
Basically, everything you need to have a roaring good time gaming. (Importantly, it’ll also let you play Deathloop, one of 2021’s best new games.)
Users will be able to enter once if they’re a new eBay Plus member, and twice if they purchase an eBay Plus badged item on eBay during the entry period.
How to enter eBay’s PS5 competition
If you’re a new eBay Plus subscriber, all you’ll need to do is send your eBay plus registered email address (ie. the account you log into eBay with) via SMS to +61 480 000 020 between the hours of 10:00 a.m. AEST on Thursday, September 23 and 11:59 a.m. AEST on Thursday, September 30.
Once you text that number, you’ll go into the running to win one of the major PlayStation 5 prize packs. There are some T&Cs you’ll need to be across here, but the basics are: you need to be over 18 to enter, a legal resident of Australia and not an employee of eBay. Other than that, you’ll be in with a fair chance.
Is it a very transparent attempt to get people to sign up to eBay Plus? Undoubtedly. But it’s a useful service if you’re frequently purchasing items from the platform, and the chance to win a PlayStation 5 is pretty swell considering you still can’t walk into a store and grab one.
An eBay Plus membership will currently run you $4.99 a month, or $49 a year. And if you win a PlayStation 5 for that price? The deal’s even sweeter. Just make sure to remember your entry before the prize draw is up.
Update 11:30 a.m. AEST 22/9: This article has been updated to clarify the competition is only open to new eBay Plus signups, and excludes current eBay Plus members.
