eBay Travel Gift Card Deal

PayPal Digital Gifts on eBay currently has a very very good deal on travel gift cards. You can save quite a bit of money by combining the discount, eBay Bucks, portal rewards and a Chase Ink card. Let’s take a look.

The Offer

Save an extra 15% off when you purchase $200 or more of selected gift cards.

Which Travel Brands

There are a total of seven different travel brands available. Here are the cards you can buy under this discount:

  • American Airlines
  • Delta Airlines
  • Southwest Airlines
  • Carnival Cruise Line
  • Princess Cruises
  • Royal Caribbean Cruise Line
  • Celebrity Cruises

You can find the full list of brands on sale here.

The Math

1111a

 

Update: You may only receive eBay Bucks based on the discounted amount despite what is shown above. That would make the cost $3 more and bring the savings amount down to 24.78%.

To make it simple, let’s take a look at a purchase of $200 of American Airlines gift cards.

  • Cost: $170
  • eBay Bucks Earned: -$20 (If targeted for 5X)
  • Shop at Home 1.5% portal cashback: -$2.55
  • Final Cost: $147.45
  • Percentage Saved: 26.28%
  • 5X Ultimate Rewards earned with Chase Ink: 850

Reselling Opportunities

While there doesn’t seem to be a huge resale market for cruise gift cards, the American and Southwest cards can be sold for 81% of face value which would mean a profit for some. My main purpose to buy these would be for personal use, but there is a bit of an opportunity to profit here. You can find the resale values of different cards at Gift Card Wiki.

Conclusion

This is a great deal if you are looking to spend money on any of the included travel brands. I love to take cruises, so a potential savings of 26.28% on brands like Royal Caribbean is very appealing. That same discount on Southwest, Delta and American will also be exciting for some. Even if you weren’t targeted for 5X eBay Bucks the math may still work for you.

  1. have you actually been able to buy, I know at least 10 people pulling their hair out right now, PPDG is just teasing you

    • I did buy 2 X RCCL $100 cards. Earlier I was able to add 9 X $100 AA gift cards to the cart, but didn’t checkk out. My guess is there is some sort of unpublished limit. As with anything from PPDG it can’t just be easy it seems.

  2. I notice the terms for the RCL gift cards state that you cannot use for cruises book through a travel agency? I have two cruises at the moment, do you know if that is enforced?

      • thx, but can’t check out via paypal for AA GC with the following error code:

        Error Codes: 70245 70358 TRANSACTION_REFUSED

        anyone happens to know what that is? not a smooth sailing… will call either paypal or ebay tomorrow
