A few weeks ago eBay launched a popular pre-daylights saving coupon, which allowed customers the ability to save 20 percent off everything on eBay, with a few select exclusions. Today the site has debuted a similar -- albeit slightly less valuable -- coupon code that lets customers take 15 percent off everything across eBay.

The 15 percent off coupon is running for one day only and ends tonight, March 20, at 7:00 p.m. PT. To use it, you'll need to make a purchase on eBay worth $25 or more, pay for the item or items by the coupon's expiration time tonight, and enter the coupon code PSPRINGTIME in the redemption code field.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with eBay. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

The discount will apply to the purchase price, which excludes shipping, handling, and taxes, and caps at a maximum discount value of $50. You won't be able to buy items from the following categories on eBay with the code: Coins & Paper Money, Gift Cards & Coupons, and Real Estate. The code is available only to eBay users registered with an address in the United States, Canada, Latin America, or the Caribbean.

As a point of emphasis, if you're going to use the code remember that it's one-time-only, so if you want to gain its maximum potential you'll need to fill your cart up with either one expensive item or a collection of smaller items that add up to about $330 and above. After that point, the code's $50 max discount will be capped off.

Just like the last coupon, the new Springtime discount code is available across all of eBay, so even if you can't find Apple products you're interested in, there should be plenty of other items on the site that could be made a bit cheaper with the 15 percent off sale.

For more information on the code visit eBay's landing page, and head over to eBay's Daily Deals tech section to get started on shopping for ideas before the sale ends tonight. Our full Deals Roundup has more details on this week's latest sales as well.

I'm a rolling stone.

Why this restriction, Ebay is global yet they treat others outside of the Americas like lesser valued customers, this is similar to MR giveaways, they too are worldwide yet also have even stricter rules-U.S. and Canada only.:(

This. Furthermore, I tried to use a US address and it still didn't allow me to use the coupon. Screw you eBay.

FOUL! At least when trying to buy camera gear, yes you get a discount, in the form of a coupon or free gift card. You still pay full price on the item you purchase. You don't know what kind of coupon or gift card you actually get. MacRumors, this story is self serving and not fully truthful.

the first person appears to think that if he makes the purchase he will be mailed a gift card or coupon... when actually it's instantly taken off the purchase price.
