eBay Gift Card Deals
A number of discounted gift cards have made their way to eBay today including several good deals from the company I love to hate PayPal Digital Gifts. Let’s take a look.
Gift Card Deal Roundup
PayPal Digital Gifts has a number of gift cards on sale today. Purchasing these cards should generate 5X Ultimate Rewards points if you pay with a Chase Ink Plus/Cash card through PayPal.
- Get a $100 Toys”R”Us Gift Card for only $85 – Limit 5
- Get a $150 Lowe’s Gift Card for only $130 – Limit 5
- Get a $100 Overstock.com Gift Card & get a bonus $20 – Limit 5
Additionally SVM Gift Cards has $50 Cabela’s gift cards for $40. Note that purchases from SVM do not earn 5X.
Not As Good As Before
In the past, you would be able to also earn portal cashback and eBay Bucks while purchasing gift cards. Unfortunately those avenues have dried up. Some no longer pay out in the gift cards category and eBay Bucks are no longer earned when purchasing them.

Selling the Cards
According to Gift Card Wiki you should be able to do alright on the Lowe’s, Overstock and Toys ‘R Us cards. Those with bulk relationships should also be able to sell these for more than you pay and keep the points. If you are new to reselling gift cards then start at Gift Card Wiki and poke around.
Security Verification Loop
Unfortunately PayPal is being PayPal with these deals and I tried to purchase them, but after going through 8 security verifications (yes 8!) I received the following:
Like I said, love/hate. More hate right now than love.
Like I said, I personally tried to buy the Lowe’s, Toys ‘R Us and Overstock deals, but got robbed by the verification issues. I may try again, because I hate myself (not really) and because 7,875 Ultimate Rewards points and a couple of bucks are probably worth it. Hopefully you all don’t have the same issues as me and it goes smoothly! Happy buying.
