Brooks Brothers Gift Card Reselling Update - Mixed News

Last week, I wrote that I bought a lot of $200 Brooks Brothers gift cards for $150 in the hopes of reselling them for a $1 profit, $16 from Mr. Rebates Shopping portal and free credit cards (assumed to be worth $2 at least).

Here is what has actually happened so far:

  • I bought 32 gift cards (31 from Mr. Rebates).  28 tracked correctly.  4 did not.  I will not be following up to try and get them tracked due to the fear that all the money will be clawed back.
  • Ultimate Rewards portal posted as well.  1,200 points.  Some may find this more valuable than $16. 

  • 75.5% payout is now 75% on SaveYa, which is a difference of $1 per card.  Not too bad.  The issue is that the price could still go down.  We'll see.
  • I have been having issues with SaveYa.  I applied for Bulk Seller status about 3 weeks ago.  I was told I would get a decision within a few days.  I have not heard from them.  I have emailed and left messages.   Hopefully, it is resolved soon.
    • I was able to sell everything through Junkcard instead which is also paying 75%, but requires you to send the cards in.  Boo!  Better than nothing.  I just hope everything tracks correctly and nothing is lost in the mail.
