Samsung TV on Sale on eBay - $4ebay0 x 5 Reselling MoneyMaker - Stack with 5x eBay Bucks and 5x Aeroplan

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 55" Samsung TV UN55J6300 for $699. Limit of 5.  There are about 35 left.

In general, I don't like selling TVs since they are big so a bit of pain, but that's a personal decision.  Keep in mind that Samsung products usually cannot be sold as new on Amazon and this is no exception.  I won't be buying this because there is tax in my state and I won't have my family accept 5 large TVs for me.

The ranking is good so it will probably sell decently quick.

I usually discount like new products (with a description that it is new) by about 10%.  It is selling as new for about $1000 on Amazon so I would price at about $900.  There is only one other FBA seller selling as Like New and they are at $907.

Fees are large and in charge for oversize TVs.  If you sell at $900, your fees are a hefty $146!  That leaves you with a takehome of about $753.  Shipping will be another $12 or so assume you will be taking home about $740 or $40 profit per unit.

Since you can buy 5 of them that's $200 profit on the sale.

So here's the bonus cash:

Start with for 2% cashback from eBay  = $14  - Alternatively, you can earn 5x Aeroplan miles which is 3500 miles!  Update: Readers are pointing out that Aeroplan takes you to  You will not earn eBay Bucks if you do this!  You can also earn 2x Alaska miles from their portal for 1,400 miles from them
Targeted 10% in eBay Bucks = $70!
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 $14

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 $35.

Overall, you could earn over $130 per TV, over 19% and even better if you use eBay gift cards.  That's $650 if you buy 5!

Alternatively, you could earn about $100 per TV and 3,500 miles per TV

You can only earn $100 in eBay Bucks per transaction and only 4,000 miles per transaction so break it up into multiple transactions to earn the most!

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.
