Update 4/6/21: Another round has gone out, seems like people are more seeing this when logged into PayPal rather than receiving an e-mail. Valid until 4/30/21.
No direct link to offer, sent out via e-mail. Subject line is ‘Limited-time offer – get up to $500 cashback’
- PayPal is offering some users up to $500 for selling using a QR code. Get $250 cash back to your account with PayPal when you receive your first QR code payment of $5 or more by October 31, 2020. Get another $250 when you receive 5 transactions of $5 or more by October 31, 2020

Some people received this offer but it was only for $50/$50 instead of $250/$250. Seems like a great offer for anybody that sells anything ;).
