MacBook Air MJVE2LL/A on Sale on eBay - $40 x 2 Reselling Money Maker - Please Be Careful

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

Update: Sold Out!

eBay is selling a MacBook MJVE2LL/A for $800. Limit of 2.  About 440 available.

The ranking is fantastic and there aren't too many sellers left at this point.

The same laptop sells for between $895-$920 on Amazon and is ranked 51 in computers so it is a good seller.

There are two Amazon listings for the same laptop.  One allows you to sell as new and one only as like new.  There is a chance that Amazon may close the listing that allows you to sell as new and you may need to shuffle your inventory around.  If that happens, that can affect the price you receive.

It has happened before, recently.  When it happened, I was able to resell them on eBay within a couple of days and basically broke even.

Fees are about $55 if you sell for $900.  Shipping will probably be about $5 more, depending on what else you are sending in.  That's a takehome of $40

That's $40 on the sale alone.  You can buy 2 of them so you can make $80 on the sale price.

So here's the bonus cash:

Start with ShopAtHome.com for 2% cashback from eBay  = $16
2% in eBay Bucks = $16
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 $16

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 $40.

Overall, you could earn over $80 per MacBook, 10% 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 and if Amazon doesn't change the listing, you should do just fine.
