iPad Mini 4 (Newest Model) 64GB on Sale on eBay - Maybe a Great Reselling Deal

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

Update: As pointed out by a reader, these iPads have a Canadian model number.  I confirmed with Amazon via chat that they can be listed under American model number listing.  This is something to be aware of.  I am still buying :)

Our first reselling deal on the new generation of iPad minis!

eBay is selling a iPad mini 4 64GB for $460. Limit of 2.

The ranking is great

The same tablet sells for about $495 on Amazon.  However, there is only one seller with any stock at $495, after that the price jumps to $530.  It's hard to know at what price you can sell at, let's choose $515 as a middle ground.

Fees are about $31 if you sell for $515.  Shipping will probably be about $2.50 each if you send just the two iPads ,depending on what else you are sending in.  That's a takehome of $22 per iPad, approximately, with potential for a bunch more.

You can buy 2 of them so you can make ~$45 on the sale price alone.

So here's the bonus cash:

Start with for 2% cashback from eBay  = $9.20
Targeted 10% in eBay Bucks = $46!
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 $9.20

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 $23

Overall, you could earn over $85 per Tablet, over 18% 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.
