Playstation 4 on Sale at eBay - $75+ Potential Resell Moneymaker

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

eBay has a sale on Sony PlayStation 4 500GB Gaming Console The Last of Us: Remastered Bundle.  Price is $350 and has no taxes in NJ.

I actually wrote about the same deal a few weeks ago.  I took part and it was great!  The Playstations sold in a matter of hours, before I had a chance to change my price.  I sold them for slightly more than $400.  They are basically the same price on Amazon as before ($400-$420) and they should still sell really fast.  The only difference is that now it is 4% in eBay Bucks instead of 8%.  It's a still a decent deal, but not as lucrative as last time.

Limit of 5 per person.

This is being sold on Amazon for about $400-$420.  FBA fees are ~$45 at a sale of $410 (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 $365.

You would earn about $15 on the sale. A good start, but this is a play for all the extras (you like my pun there!).

So here's the magic:

Start with ShopatHome and earn 2% - $7.
4% in eBay Bucks - Targeted - $14
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.

Alternatively, you could buy eBay Gift Cards from eBay $95 for a $100 gift card and earn 5x Ultimate Rewards points.  That will save you another $17.50.

If you can't buy enough from eBay you can buy from Gift Card Mart at 3.5% as well.  They allow you to used American Express Gift Cards so you can save a bunch there depending on how you purchased your gift cards.

Overall, you could conservatively earn about $40 per PlayStation, over 11%, with potential for more if you use discounted eBay Gift Cards.  Not too shabby!

You can buy up to 5 of them so there is potential for over $200 of earning here.
