Ebay's semi-regular 15 per cent off deal has returned once again, offering an excellent chance to pick up a wide range of new and used tech from top retailers at some of the best prices you're likely to see all year. Here's what you need to know - plus Digital Foundry's sale highlights.
Rules: This time around, the minimum spend is £20 and the maximum discount is £60, so the best deals are around the £400 mark. Two redemptions of the code are allowed per account, with the sale starting today and running until April 4th at 11:59PM. (Full terms are here.)
Code: To get the discount, use code POP15 at the checkout on items from one of the 156 Ebay outlets taking part in the promotion. Items that offer the discount will include a small notice below the price, which looks like this on desktop web browsers:
Retailers: For us, the most promising retailers participating are:
- Crampton and Moore - for 4K HDR TVs
- Currys PC World - for PC hardware and games consoles
- Music Magpie - for Games, MacBooks and iPads
You can also search from all items involved in the sale right here. We recommend being quite specific here - "Samsung Galaxy S20" is going to get you a much more manageable list of results than "smartphone".

Will you support the Digital Foundry team?
Digital Foundry specialises in technical analysis of gaming hardware and software, using state-of-the-art capture systems and bespoke software to show you how well games and hardware run, visualising precisely what they're capable of. In order to show you what 4K gaming actually looks like we needed to build our own platform to supply high quality 4K video for offline viewing. So we did.
Our videos are multi-gigabyte files and we've chosen a high quality provider to ensure fast downloads. However, that bandwidth isn't free and so we charge a small monthly subscription fee of $5. We think it's a small price to pay for unlimited access to top-tier quality encodes of our content. Thank you.Support Digital Foundry
