Misleading ads from paypal

on 2nd dec an ad popped up on ebay for £20 reward on purchase of £40 using paypal credit. On click of the ad I received below details . I bought few goods of more than £50 using paypal credit but I didn't get any email and no reward was given. It seems to me that paypal is resorting to misleading ads to incite customers in buying. If they know that first 6000 limit is reached then they should stop the ads. And horrible customer service. Calling customer service get into all the option with no one to speak to. Added message in message center but closed the thread abruptly. 

 


"You’ve completed the first step! Now apply for a PayPal Credit account and if you’re accepted, spend £40 to get your £20 reward.*
