Microsoft Surface on Sale on eBay = $15x5 Reselling Moneymaker and 8% in eBay Bucks

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

eBay has the Microsoft Surface 2 32GB for $240 without tax in many states.  It sells for about $280 on Amazon.  Max of 5 per person.

FBA fees (before shipping) bring down your takehome to about $260. Shipping will take it down to about $255 or so.

That's $15 on the sale or $75 for 5 of them

So here's the bonus cash:

Start with Inbox Dollars for 5% cashback = $12.
Alternatively, you can earn 3x United Miles
Targeted 8% back in eBay Bucks = $19.20
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 $4.80

You can buy eBay Gift cards for even greater savings.

Overall, you could earn about $50, over 20%, and more if you use eBay Gift Cards.  That's $250 if you buy 5 and if the price doesn't change.  I think there is enough wiggle room to make a good profit even if the price drops a bit.

Ranked #129 in computers and #50 in tablets.  It should sell pretty quickly.  There are about 1,000 left so not such a big rush.
