Sears Gift Card Deal

A few people approached me this weekend asking about gift card reselling. They aren’t necessarily interested in doing it full time, but just occasionally. I told them it is good to hone your skills on no-brainer type deals. In my opinion, today’s Sears gift card deal on eBay is one. Let’s look at why.

The Offer

Reselling Opportunities

If we look at Gift Card Wiki, we can see that these cards can be sold for 84% of their value right now. That seems like a loss on the surface, but actually it isn’t. That is because there are a number of ways to save even more. I purchased three of these cards and earned:

  • 5X Ultimate Rewards points by paying with a Chase Ink card.
  • 8% in eBay Bucks (targeted offer). Non-targeted members earn 2%.

So let’s see what my true cost is. I personally value Ultimate Rewards a bit higher, but like to use a value of 1.5 cents each on this site to be conservative. My earnings on the purchase of three cards are:

  • 1,320 points @ 1.5 cents each: $19.80
  • 8% in eBay Bucks: $21.12
  • 1.3% cashback: $3.43

So my final cost after subtracting out those rebates is $219.65. That is a discount of $80.35 or 26.78% off face value. That is good but I sort of look at this another way. There are cash and there are points. Since I am going to hypothetically sell these cards for 84%, what will I have in the end?

The answer is a profit of $12.55 (portal and eBay Bucks) and 1,320 Ultimate Rewards points. A win any way you slice it.

Other eBay Discounted Cards

Whenever there is an eBay Bucks promotion I always look for other deals and there are some other discounted gift cards, although none nearly as good as this one. You can find a full list of discounted gift cards here.

Conclusion

For those who have been reading Miles to Memories for awhile perhaps this was a boring exercise, but I hope I explained things well for those who are a bit newer to the game. There are of course other uses for Sears gift cards and Frequent Miler has a great resource explaining all about them. In the end, this is a good deal for many reasons and it is a deal I suspect many of you will benefit from. Happy shopping!
