$100 Lowe’s Gift Card for $90 on eBay, Stack with 8% Bucks for $13 Moneymaker

The Offer

Direct Link

  • Purchase $100 Lowe’s physical gift card for just $90 from Giftcardmall on eBay. Limit 2.

The Fine Print

  • “Limited quantity available” Currently, there appears to be around 3,500 available with 1400 sold

Our Verdict

Lowe’s is always one of the more popular gift cards. This deal is especially good given that there is currently a bonus bucks offer going on. If you buy 2 Lowe’s gift cards, you’ll meet the threshold to get the full 8% back in Bucks, or $14.40.

You can also go through the Inbox Dollars portal to get 5% back on the purchase. (This post contains affiliate links to eBay, we appreciate you using our links but keep in mind by doing so you won’t earn portal cashback.)

Keep in mind that there also two other gift card deals going on:

Reselling Lowe’s

Lowe’s gift cards can be resold for 83% of their value. Here’s the math breakdown:

  • Pay $180 for the 2 gift cards (-$180)
  • Sell for 83% (+$166)
  • Get 8% back in Bucks (+$14.40)
  • Get 5% back from the portal (+$9)
  • Get at least 2% back from the credit card (+$3.60)
  • Net profit: $13

Not bad if you’re into gift card reselling. Also not much risk here with price fluctuation since Lowe’s should hold steady.

Reselling Kmart

Kmart e-gift cards can be resold to Saveya for 84% of its value. Here’s the math breakdown:

  • Pay $127.50 for the 2 gift cards (-$127.50)
  • Sell for 84% (+$126)
  • Get 6% back in Bucks (+$7.65)
  • Get 5% back from the portal (+$6.38)
  • Get 5% back from INK (+$6.38)
  • Net profit: $20.41

These should also hold steady in the long run.

Did the Lowe’s gig a little earlier. Too bad I jumped on the Kmart gig yesterday already. What I always find missing in your profit calculations is the $2.04 one pays for the shipping of GC to the exchange. If you use the cheapest First Class Mail with tracking that is.

With the Lowe’s GCs at least, you can sell them to CardPool for the same rate as SaveYa and CardPool pays for the postage.

I think there’s no tracking for the mail slip they get you? Dunno ’bout you but I’m not sending hundreds of $$ across the continent w/o tracking.

I also don’t think that portal rewards should be part of the calculation. I was declined today by TCB for a claim where I did everything right.

TCB changed their T&C’s, but you can still get 5% from InboxDollar.

It wasn’t a price matching claim. It was for a purchase I made from Petco.com through the TCB portal. My point is that no one should rely on portal cash back when making these buying decisions. If it works it’s just an added bonus.

You are correct – I usually steer away from deals that are only profitable if the cashback portal tracks the purchase correctly (Allen Edmonds was a fine example of that).

Even TCB agrees that you should not be making a purchase for the sole purpose of getting their cashback:
“Please do not make purchase decisions based on expected cashback as it is not guaranteed. See our Terms and Conditions for more information.”

I’m trying to buy a couple of $100 Hyatt gift cards and I keep getting this warning

Seller blocks buyers who exceed the limit of currently winning or bought items.

Is my account block? I can’t find anywhere that there’s a limit to how many one can buy

Carlos

Contact the buyer what we do as ebay sellers is set the setting to only allow a buyer to purchase a couple of items.
Reason being is to stop zero feedback buyers with malicious intent to shut down your auctions and not pay.
Other high volume sellers would create new accounts to keep same products they sell off the market.
Contact the seller I would def. make an exception for u.

There’s a lot of new GC deals on ebay right now. With bonus ebay bucks, they seems quite tempting.
The ones I found interesting:
100 Staples gc for 85
60 game stop gc for 50
100 best buy gc, get 10 ebay gc

But notice here: you can only get 6% ebay bucks for 2 game stop gc even if you combine the purchase with other items.
