iPad Air 2 64GB on Sale on eBay - Stack with 5x eBay Bucks!

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

eBay is selling a iPad Air 2 64GB for $490. Limit of 2.

This was on sale yesterday but I didn't think it was worthwhile, now with increased eBay Bucks, it is definitely worthwhile if you are targeted.

Remember that you don't start earning increased eBay Bucks until 8am PT or 11am ET

The ranking is fantastic and they sell really quickly!

The same iPad sells for between $535-$540 on Amazon.

Fees are about $32 if you sell for $535.  Shipping will probably be about $2 more if you send only 2, depending on what else you are sending in.  That's a takehome of $500, approximately.

That's $10 on the sale.  You can buy 2 of them so you can make $20 on the sale price.  Not so impressive, but wait for it...

So here's the bonus cash:

Start with for 2% cashback from eBay  = $9.80  - Alternatively, you can earn 5x Aeroplan miles which is 2,450 miles!
Targeted 10% in eBay Bucks = $49!
Use up eBay Gift Cards or eBay Bucks- 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 $9.80

You can buy eBay Gift cards for even greater savings.  You are always able to buy eBay gift cards for 5% off from Target with a Target RedCard.  That's a savings of $24.50.

Overall, you could earn over $75 per iPad, over 15% and even better if you use eBay gift cards.  That's $150 if you buy 2!

Keep in mind that there is a maximum use of $5,000 of eBay Gift Cards per rolling 180 days.  Also, sometimes there is a maximum of 5, 7, 8 or 9 eBay Gift Cards that you can use in one transaction before the transaction times out.

Prices can and will likely go down a bit due to resellers but if you are patient you should do just fine.
