eBay Gift Card Sales: Sears, Staples, Hyatt, TGI, Cabela’s, iTunes, Coldstone, & Gilt Gift Cards at a Discount

The Offer

  • (Direct Link) Purchase $75 in Staples e-gift cards from Paypal Digital on eBay for $65. (One offer per person.) [UPDATE: Dead. I predicted it would last longer – I was wrong.]
  • (Direct Link) Purchase a $100 Sears e-gift card from Paypal Digital on eBay for $85. Limit 2.
  • (Direct Link) Purchase a $200 Hyatt physical gift cards from SVM on eBay for $175. Limit 2.
  • (Direct Link) Purchase a $50 Cabela’s physical gift card from SVM on eBay for $40. No limit currently. (That may change…) Now limited to 5 per account. I ordered 10, we’ll see what happens…
  • (Direct Link) Purchase a $50 TGI Friday’s physical gift card from SVM on eBay for $40. No limit currently. (That may change…) Now limited to 5 per account.
  • (Direct Link) Purchase a $25 Coldstone e-gift card from Paypal Digital on eBay for $20. Limit 2.
  • (Direct Link) Purchase a $100 iTunes e-gift card from Paypal Digital on eBay for $80. Limit 4.
  • (Direct Link) Purchase a $50 Gilt e-gift card from Paypal Digital on eBay for $40. Currently no limit. Now limited to 5 per account.

All of these cards appear to have many thousands available and should hopefully not sell out any time soon.

Note: The Hyatt deal is a Daily Deal so it will probably just be around today 5/21/15.

The Fine Print

  • Digital gift cards may take up to 24 hours to deliver.
  • “Limited quantity available” As noted, I believe we have some time with all of these, they probably won’t be selling out in hours.

Our Verdict

Another eBay gift card day today! Still have to figure out which ones of these are useful for reselling. The TGI and Cabela’s can both be break-even resells. And the Hyatt comes close. Sears is also interesting.

Bear in mind, there can always be devaluations in the value of merchant gift cards so there is some risk involved.

Ebay & Paypal always screw up something at the time of deal for me.. I am holding $2000 Ebay Gift Cards and none of them can be used due to some “mysterious-I don’t see any problem at our side” paypal issue..

Did you already use $5,000 worth of gift cards in the past 180 days? I ran into a problem where ebay would recognize the gift card, but PayPal wouldn’t allow it to be used. After a chat with CS, they said I already used the max amount of gift cards.

No not actually, I was using my buyer account in which I had used only $500. From my seller account I know I was near limit so I didn’t use that. But somehow it was account specific, I could use my wife’s account.

I am just hoping they don’t send another warning. 3 months back they sent warning when I used two accounts, but this time, I have used only 1 account so I guess I should be ok.

“Bear in mind, there can always be devaluations in the value of merchant gift cards so there is some risk involved.”

Very true advise Chuck.. I see now a days resellers changes rates so fast. I don’t know if it was your article on Target Gift Card that killed it or what but Target is no longer over 90% now.. Don’t take a blame though, it happens all the time. So many brilliant minds are entering reselling game from bluebird/redcard area…

Staples deal dead already.

TGI Friday and Cabella’s limits are set.

Listing for Staples seems to have ended, and it only let me buy one Sears. 🙁

Hmm, I am not sure if second one has $500 limit. (It could be) I called Paypal but CSR himself was very confused and could hardly understand my problem. I am done with all Ebay cards with my wife’s account. So I am good now.. 🙂

Thanks doc, I’m in for some TGIF and Cabela’s gift cards.

You can always buy eBay gc at staples first, then everything earns 5% – as long as you don’t lose portal cash back for redeeming a gc as has happened to me sometimes.

@Audrey- Staples is good too Or better, if you have a Kroger around and have a card that gives you 3% / 5% / 6% at Grocery Store. You can be much ahead with 2x (or sometimes 4x Fuel points)

Or I guess you can still buy eBay gc from paypal digital gifts.

You mentioned using up Amex GCs here, but any tips of avoiding the $1 preauthorizations charge that PayPal puts on the card when you add it?

You can also buy ebay GC first from GYFT.com resulting in 5X points from Chase Ink and 1% CB from Ebates. You also get 2% in GYFT points for future use. So, effectively you are getting 3% CB. Then you use Ebates again to buy regular GCs (Cabelas, TGI, etc) from Ebay and get 4% CB or whatever is offered. This is what I did today on the Cabelas and TGI Friday’s.

Hyatt GCs are good for international Hyatt stays?

Chuck, did you get email from SVM regarding your order? I received message from SVM that I order over the limit and since the limit is 5, I can choose to keep order of 5 or they can cancel the whole order and refund me full amount..!!

Found this listing today by Paypal Digital Gifts: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Buy-a-75-Staples-Gift-Card-for-only-60-Email-delivery-/281705455850

However, it says “This listing is restricted to pre-approved buyers only. Email the seller to be placed on that pre-approved list.”

Anyone ever see this before?

I have. When I emailed them they said it was not live yet.
