Ebay UK is running one of its irregular 20 per cent off promotions right now, making it the best time to get up to £75 off your next big tech purchase. To see the discounted price, just use code PAID20 at the checkout before the promotion expires on February 28th*. There are a wider range of retailers than normal participating this time around, and we’ve been able to find deals on 4K TVs, PC hardware, console accessories and much more.
The offer is good for one item at £15 or more when you pay with PayPal, a credit card or debit card. See the full terms and conditions here for more details.
First, let’s take a look at some of the most promising retailers:
Here are the highlights we’ve found so far. Let us know in the comments if you spot any good deals we’ve missed!
The Samsung RU7100 is one of the best budget 4K HDR TVs for gaming, thanks to its low input lag, good contrast levels and decent smart features. Right now you can pick up a massive 55-inch model for just £324 on Ebay, down from £380, from the Crampton & Moore store. That’s a great price on a 55-inch 4K HDR TV, especially one as good for gaming as the RU7100.
One of the best deals we’ve spotted so far is for a refurbished MSI Optix MAG271C 27-inch 144Hz monitor, which is going for just £161 with the Ebay code. That’s an excellent price for a curved 27-inch 144Hz monitor, especially given the VA panel used here provides excellent contrast and good colour reproduction too.
Need a new official Xbox One Wireless Controller for your PC or Xbox? Pick up a professionally refurbished model in the colourway of your choice for £24, a reduction of £6 from their usual price and considerably less than the £45 that Microsoft charge for a brand new controller. These come with a 90-day warranty, so you’ll be covered in case you get a dodgy unit.
High-speed RAM can be expensive, especially when you add RGB in the mix – so this 16GB kit of 3600MHz RAM is a great deal at £82. This is a set of Corsair Vengeance RGB RAM, so it looks fantastic when paired with other RGB-encrusted components lit up in the colour or colours of your choice.
How much would you pay to add 1TB of storage to your PC? How about £24? That’s the price of 1TB Seagate Barracuda drives on Ebay today after the PAID20 code. These particular drives are sold in “opened – never used” condition, having come from desktop computers that were upgraded to SSDs before being used, so reliability should be excellent and the price is right. Overall, a good option for adding a decent chunk of storage space to your PC at a rock bottom price.
Graphics cards are another good shout, with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 we’ve found at £321 offering a good amount of horsepower for the money. Looking at the GPU Power Ladder, this card is a great choice for gaming all the way up to 4K. In the nine games we use for our GPU testing, including both recent and older titles from DX9 to DX12 and Vulkan, we got these averages: 115fps at 1080p, 82fps at 1440p and 44fps at 4K. £321 is an incredible price for this much graphics card, so grab it while you can!
