When I chose to use my normal credit card payment, a little box was below it that said something like "Why not use your bank account? Get 5 dollars back when you pay with an account transfer!"
After I added and chose bank account, this message, and any indication that I would get $5 back was gone. What happened? Did I just get tricked by paypal? There was no $5, either through a lower bill to my account or in 5$ back in my paypal account.
Same here. An administrator posted the terms in another thread at https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/How-to-use-PayPal/Where-is-my-5-for-adding-and-using-my-checking...
I met all the terms and it has been 8 weeks, but I have not received my credit.
I emailed PayPal customer service at the 8 week mark and they wrote back that I would receive an answer to my question in 2 hours. I didn't hear from them again, so five days later, I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. Today, after 13 more days, my account was credited the $5. In the transaction details, it says "correction". I hope this helps, but I am interested to know if everyone else received their $5.
I just had the same thing. I hope that I have not gotten taken by spy-ware. I entered through a portal in ebay.
Does anybody has the phone number for paypal. I am the next victim of this scam.
I am never going to use paypal if I do not get my 5 bucks back. And will also not vote for their guvrnor aspirant CEO.
