Apple Watch on Sale on eBay - $60++ Possible Resale Opportunity - Potential is Much Greater

Disclaimer: I receive a referral commission for the following link(s) and I greatly appreciate supporting the site:  Top Cashback, eBay, Raise, Amazon, Shop at Home

Update: You will only be able to buy 2 per account, not 2 per color.  Still a good deal, but not quite as lucrative.

A couple of people have mentioned that the price directly from Apply is $400.  This will not definitely have an affect on Amazon, but it may, please be aware of this before you buy.

HT - DA via email

eBay has a sale the Apple Watch for $390.  Price is $390 and has no taxes in NJ or NY.

Limit of 2 per person per color

This is being sold on Amazon for about $475.  FBA fees are ~$45 at a sale of $480 (Shipping is separate but should be $5 or less - try to ship as many items as possible in one package).  That's a takehome of about $435.

You would earn about $30 on the sale. Since you can buy 2 per color (max possibility of buying 8 right now), there is the possibility of earning $60 just on the sale of 2.

So here's the bonus cash:

Start with Top Cashback and earn 1.2% - $4.60
2% in eBay Bucks (increased eBay Bucks won't come back until Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday- this deal might be gone - fewer than 1,000 of each kind.  You can decide on your own whether you should wait) - $7.80
Use up eBay Gift Cards - You can either use eBay gift cards which hopefully you bought at a discount or you can use a credit card that earns 2% which would be another ~$7.80.

Alternatively, you could buy eBay Gift Cards on Raise for 4% off and still get your 2% from your credit card.  That would add an extra $15.60.

Raise allows you to use American Express Gift Cards which can add an extra 2% of savings if you bought them with a Fidelity American Express card when Top Cashback was paying 2.25 for AGCs.  That would an extra $7.60.

You can also buy eBay Gift Cards from Target for 10% off (extra 5% if you pay some portion with a RedCard).  Maximum of 3 per transaction but you can make multiple transactions.  That would be an extra $39 instead of $15.60

Overall, you could conservatively earn over $80 per Apple Watch, over 20%, if you buy the gift cards from Target. Not too shabby!

You can buy up to 2 of them per color so there is potential for over $160 of earnings per color.

You could also use for 2%.  Some have had success with them, otherwise have had the cashback track at 1% and needed to ask for an increase.  I've never used them for eBay, thought I should try it out.

Keep in mind that if you use Top Cashback, you can file a Price Match Guarantee claim once the transactions posts to match the 2%, but it must be within 7 days of the transaction so it is a small window.

Please comment below if you ever have used ShopatHome for eBay and what your experience has been.  Thanks.
