Cardcash Now Sells on eBay
Discounted gift card retailer Cardcash now sells on eBay, in addition to their own websites Cardcash.com and Abcgiftcards.com.
A current sampling of available cards includes $80 Omaha Steaks for $56, $25 Zappos for $21.25, and around 3% off Starbucks and McDonald’s. Their eBay inventory will change over time.
Cardpool also started selling gift cards on eBay a few months back under the name Giftcardoutlet. Both Cardcash and Giftcardoutlet are selling only even-denomination cards on eBay, and many of their cards are paper gift cards, not plastic.
In both cases, these are pre-owned cards, and they aren’t as safe as buying from the brand-new sellers: PPDG, Giftcardmall, SVM, and Cardency. These cards can be great deals especially when bonus Bucks offers come around, and these can be stacked with portal offerings as well.
We don’t know yet if buying gift cards from Cardcash on eBay will result in earning 5x rewards with the Chase INK card. Most likely it will not earn, just as purchases made directly on Cardcash’s sites do not earn 5x, even when paying with Paypal. I made a purchase today and paid with INK; I’ll update the post in a few days when the charge settles whether it earned 5x. [Update 6/29: It does NOT code at 5x when paying with Paypal.]
With Giftcardoutlet and Cardcash selling on eBay, it’s becoming more difficult to discern when the first-hand eBay sellers are running sales. It used to be easy to check the discounted gift card page on eBay, but now the page is full with these Cardpool and Cardcash pre-owned cards, making it harder to tell.
