Doubt that very much I got the same text from "eBay AU", also on 28 Sept 2018. I assumed it was a scam so didn't click any links. When I tried to manually enter the address given on a PC it didn't work so looks like it's a dud. Just logged into my account on the real Ebay Australia and there's no message about it, no sign of a $20 credit. Can't find any info about a real eBay promo.
These phone and online scams are getting so common now it's just cluttering up my phone like spam does for email. Even if there's really a $20 credit out there I'm not going to risk it, anyway these "offers" are just out to suck people in for more ad's. Got more than enough of those already. Legit biz's know better.

"here's $10 on eBay AU. Use code: HURRY10. Shop Deals: https://bit.ly/2NBgTTi. T&Cs: https://bit.ly/2Oo2Dui. SMS STOP to 0427 055 200"
Unsolicited, phishing scammmer/s. Criminal activity in breach of TOU.

Messaged STOP before I realised it was spam Unsolicited SMS offering eBay app with 10% discount, but hyperlink is not legit eBay address - it's "https://ebay.onelink.me/... which site seems to belong to AppFlyer.
It goes on to say that I should SMS STOP to them if I want to unsubscribe. As I haven't subscribed in the first place, I won't be confirming my number to them by doing so. I trust them about as far as I could spit them
phone number is a hoax. don't know how it works but i was also receiving messgae supposedly from TAB and today i got one from ebay. the stop command does not work.
This is a fake, do not follow any of the links.
Caller: No idea
Says eBay and to click on the link
I haven’t bothered it’s a fake I can tell straight up
I Don’t have an eBay account even never even really looked at anything on there
Scam for sure
Caller: Text only
Text received about discounts. My number is on the Do Not Call list. I sent a message to them to say I have reported them for this breach. They will receive fines. Put your number on the Do Not Call list and report them - make them pay
Spam and number does not take replies. Dodgy link. Reckon it's something to do with g+ data breach, because the message was to to my g+ handle, not to the name my ebay account is in. Caller: eBay????
Considering I don't have an eBay account, I'm going to say it's fake!
Caller: 0427 055 200
Received the SMS promo 7/11 and 23/11. Hyperlink is legit (is actually ebay website) but there is no $20 credit on that page, as promised.
unsolicited text from 'eBayAU' claiming I have a $20 voucher to spend It is legit It looks legit actually. I clicked on the bit.ly link in a safe browser and it turned out to be Ebay and the $20 off voucher is real. Caller: 0427 055 200
For real get a life d*ck head
Yes, that's exactly what I got too and I forwarded it ACMA (acma.gov.au) 0429 999 888 for all SPAM Unsolicited text including my name with presumably fake Ebay voucher and scam hotlink. deleted Caller: eBayAU
2 texts a few weeks apart saying I have a $20 voucher on eBay, with different offer codes. One had a T&Cs link. Didn't risk clicking on them.
Caller: Text EBAYAU
Received a text saying my name and $20 off eBay using voucher.
Looks like a fake or scam but the voucher worked so I’m happy. Didn’t click on any links that came in the text.
