MacBook 13" on Sale on eBay - Reselling Moneymaker

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: 5pm ET - about 200 left.  There were 350 when I posted about 3 and a half hours ago.

Update 2: 10:40pm ET - about 30 left.

eBay has the MacBook 13" MVE2LL/A for $799 without tax everywhere except NJ.  It sells for about $895 on Amazon.  Max of 2 per person.

 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 $840. Shipping will take it down to about $830-$835.  Amazon could always say you can't sell as new which changes your profit margin, but it hasn't happened yet.

That's $30 on the sale or $60 for 2 of them

So here's the bonus cash:

Start with Inbox Dollars or 5% match from Top Cashback. = $40.
Alternatively, you could use the United Shopping Portal for 4x Miles on eBay
2% in eBay Bucks = $16
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

You can buy eBay Gift cards for even greater savings.

Overall, you could earn about $100, over 12%, and more if you use eBay Gift Cards.  This is a great opportunity.  That's over $200 if you buy 2.   There are only about 350 available (500 when I checked earlier and wasn't available to post) so it isn't a super rush if you holding out for more eBay Bucks, but I would keep an eye on the inventory if you are waiting.

Ranked #5 in laptops.  It sells really, really fast!
