eBay Gift Card Sale
eBay has a tremendous gift card sale going on right now that stacks with a number of other promotions. Let’s take a look.
4X eBay Bucks + 3X or 5% from a Portal
Many members were targeted with a promotion giving 4X eBay Bucks (8% in rewards) on purchases of $150+. While the wording seems to indicate it only works on items that cost $150 or more, it will work as long as your total purchase is more than $150.
Additionally, both the AAdvantage and Alaska shopping portals are paying back 3X miles at eBay today. I love me some Alaska miles, so that would be my preferred method. Inbox Dollars still has their 5% deal going on as well if you favor cash back.
Combine for Huge Savings Including Possible 5X More
So you can combine 8% in eBay Bucks, 3X or 5% from a portal and your credit card rewards for a nice savings. Remember that purchases from Paypal Digital Gifts have earned 5X Ultimate Rewards points with Chase Ink in the past.
Since the majority of the cards on sale are from Paypal Digital Gifts, you could essentially earn, 8% + 3X or 5% + 5X plus the discount off face value! Let’s look at a quick example.
A Quick Example – 32% Off Face Value
Purchase a $100 Staples eGift card for $85 with a Chase Ink card and earn: $6.80 in eBay Bucks, 255 Alaska miles and 425 Ultimate Rewards points. Based on my valuations of the miles and points (1.5 cents each) the final price is $68. That amounts to a 32% discount!
