Up to 22% (or 15%) Off Chevron Texaco Gift Cards
Earlier today I covered a deal where I saved 25% off the face value of Hyatt gift cards. Using a similar set of promotions, I was also able to save 22% off the face value of Chevron/Texaco gift cards. I actually wrote about this deal a few hours ago on Frequent Miler, but I believe it warrants mentioning here as well with a little more detail on what to do with the cards.
The Current Offers
Currently there are a few offers that work together to make this a great deal. Here they are:
- SVM Gift Cards is selling $100 Chevron/Texaco gift cards for $90. (Limit 3)
- eBay is offering 2% eBay Bucks (although some members like me were targeted for 5X giving a 10% rebate.)
- Ebates (personal referral link) is offering 4% portal cashback on gift cards at eBay.
So if we combine those deals the math works like this:
- Cost of cards: $270
- eBay Bucks earned: $27 (or $5.40 if not targeted for 5X eBay Bucks)
- Portal cashback: $10.80
- Total cost: $232.20 ($253.80)
- Percentage off $300 face value: 22.6% (15.4%)
The key to this deal is adding together the promotions. Sure the 10% discount is nice, but adding in eBay Bucks and portal cashback makes the discount 15.4%. Of course if you were targeted for the 5X eBay Bucks promotion, then you are getting a 22.6% discount which is amazing.
What to do with these cards?
Well the way I see it, there are two ways to go from here. First off, you could use them and enjoy a decent discount off of your gasoline. Even if Chevron is more expensive in your area, the discount off of face value may warrant buying fuel there.
Secondly, you can resell the gift cards. Gas gift cards hold their value quite a lot since fuel is a necessity for just about everyone. Currently these cards sell for 88-90% of their face value (source: Gift Card Granny) so you would be coming out ahead either way.
This is another fantastic deal that can be had today on gift cards. Just remember whenever purchasing from eBay or anywhere else that it is important to stack discounts, portal returns and loyalty programs to make any dealer sweeter! Enjoy.
