Microsoft Surface 2 64GB on Sale on eBay - No Brainer without eBay Bucks - $35 x 5 Reselling Moneymaker!

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

Update: Reader JZ points out that the Surface Pro 4 is coming out next week which may affect the resale value here.  This is already an older model so I am not too worried and it isn't in the Pro line, but this is something to be aware of.

eBay is selling a Microsoft Surface 2 64GB for $300. Limit of 5.

The ranking is great

The same tablet sells for between $360 on Amazon.

Fees are about $22 if you sell for $360.  Shipping will probably be about $1 each if you send in all 5,depending on what else you are sending in.  That's a takehome of 335, approximately.

That's $35 on the sale.  You can buy 5 of them so you can make $175 on the sale price.

So here's the bonus cash:

Start with for 2% cashback from eBay  = $6 
Targeted 10% in eBay Bucks = $30!
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 $6

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 $15

Overall, you could earn over $75 per Tablet, over 25% 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.

Maximum of $100 in eBay Bucks per transaction so break it up into 2 transactions to earn the full amount of eBay Bucks.

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