eBay Bucks Bonus & Staples Gift Cards
This is just a quick post to let you know that eBay is targeting many members with a 4X (8%) eBay Bucks offer and it is awesome! Why? Well, those Staples gift cards I wrote about the other day are still available, but my guess is they will sell out soon.
eBay Bonus Bucks Offer Details
• 4% in eBay Bucks on every qualifying item of $50 or more
• 6% in eBay Bucks on every qualifying item of $100 or more
• 8% in eBay Bucks on every qualifying item of $150 or more
The Promotion starts at 12PM PT on June 22, 2016, and ends at 6PM PT on June 22, 2016. Note: Despite the terms, you generally earn bonus bucks if the entire purchase is over the qualifying amount. For example, two or more Staples gift cards cost over $150 and thus should earn 8% in eBay Bucks.
You can find the full details of how to make a profit on these cards in my original post, but here is a quick breakdown of the math:
- Cost of 5 cards: $425
- 8% in eBay Bucks: -$34
- 1.3% cashback from iConsumer: -$5.53
- Final cost: $385.47
- Sell for 84%: $420
- Total Profit: $34.53
- 5X Ultimate Rewards earned with Ink: 2,125
If none of that makes sense then head over to my original post where it is all explained in much more detail! As of now there are about 2,000 gift cards left, which is only about 400 sets if people all purchase five. I would be surprised if this deal lasts since I think many people were holding out on purchasing in the hopes of getting an eBay Bucks offer. There are also some gas and other gift cards on sale, but Staples cards are the real prize.
