Small Moneymaker on Ebay
GiftCardMall on Ebay is currently running a discount on Staples gift cards.
- $100 Staples gift card for $85
- Limit 2 per buyer
It just started sometime within the last 6-12 hours (I think), and already 6,152 sold out. I doubt this will last too long.
This is great for Staples purchases, but not to buy Visa gift cards at Staples.com, because the system is now hard-coded not to allow it.
Or you can sell the gift card for $86-$90. (Go through Topcashback to get an extra 4% at Cardpool)
Go through Topcashback when you buy the gift cards from Ebay and you’ll get 1.5% cashback. You’ll also get 2% back in Ebay Bucks if you’re enrolled. (You need a minimum $5 payout to get Ebay Bucks.)
All told, you’ll profit $2-10 dollars from the sale, plus $5.95 from the portal & Ebay Bucks combined (3.5% of $170). Plus 170 credit card points.
If you have a second Ebay account, you should be able to purchase another two Staples gift cards (I did this once in the past without a problem), which will add to the profit. You won’t get Ebay Bucks on the second order, because Ebay doesn’t allow Ebay Bucks on more than one account.
