MacBook 13" on eBay for $800 - Back on Sale!

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

Update - check to see if you have a 10% off coupon 

Update - Use coupon code CMXDAY2 - It took $100 off the price for me!  That's crazy!  Thank you Reader Josh!

Update 2: Reader Josh reports that PayPal receipt may not be reflecting $100 discount, but that the credit card charge reflects the discount.  Please check and possibly cancel if your credit card shows the full price.  That would not be good!

eBay has the MacBook MD101LL/A 13" for $800 without tax everywhere except NJ.  I sold it last week for $890 as new and it is still around that price on Amazon (all the ones selling for under $890 are out of stock).  Max of 2 per person.
Return to product information

There are two listings on Amazon, one allows you to sell as "New" and the other only allows as "Like New".  It has been this way for a few weeks already so I hope nothing changes.

FBA fees (before shipping) bring down your takehome to about $825. Amazon could always say you can't sell as new which changes your profit margin, but it hasn't happened yet.

That's $25 on the sale or $50 for 2 of them

So here's the bonus cash:

Start with Inbox Dollar or 5% match from Top Cashback. = $41.25.
Targeted 10% back in eBay Bucks = $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 $16

There is a maximum of earning $100 in eBay Bucks in one purchase so buy them one at time to maximize.

You can buy eBay Gift cards for even greater savings.

Overall, you could earn over  $125 per Laptop, over 15%, and more if you use eBay Gift Cards.  This is a great opportunity.  That's over $250 if you buy 2.   There are almost $1,000 available so the only rush is the expiring increased eBay Bucks.

Ranked #6 in laptops.  It sells really, really fast!
