eBay Gift Cards 4.25% off at Gift Card Mart - Now Live

Update 2: Sold out but now back in stock.  Reader Robert J Kwony reports that he has used AmEx gift cards in the past on Gift Card Mart.

Update: Now Live

Gift Card Mart will be having a sale starting soon (1aam CT) on eBay gift cards.

You will be able to buy gift cards at 4.25% off. (currently 3% off)

I have never used them myself, but some readers have with good results.  I don't know if you can use AmEx gift cards to buy them, but that would increase your savings as well.


If you have a Chase Ink card, you are still better off buying them from Staples to earn 5x Ultimate Rewards points instead (though reports of portal cashback/miles are now more questionable).

Alternatively, you can buy them at a grocery store and sometimes earn fuel points.

Here are some other ideas as well.

Please remember that there are restrictions in using eBay Gift cards, including a limit of $5,000 per 180 days for verified PayPal accounts.
