WD My Cloud Personal 4TB Cloud Storage on Sale on eBay - I'm Buying even with Tax! - $30 x 5 Reselling MoneyMaker

eBay is selling the WD My Cloud Personal 4TB Cloud Storage unit for $140. Limit of 5.

The ranking is great - #1 ranking in its category!

The same unit sells for between $192-$200 on Amazon.

Amazon is a seller at about $192.  I recommend selling either at $191.99 to match Amazon or to go slightly more expensive than that.  Amazon will usually match your lower price or undercut you (to a limit) if you try to undercut them.  I have had good experiences matching Amazon's prices.

Fees are about $20 if you sell for $191.  Shipping will probably be about $1.5 each if you send in all 5 (3 lbs each),depending on what else you are sending in.  That's a takehome of $170, approximately.

That's $30 on the sale.  You can buy 5 of them so you can make $150 on the sale price.

I pay about $150 with tax, still worth it in my opinion (about 13% before any extras)

So here's the bonus cash:

Start with for 2% cashback from eBay  = $2.80
2% in eBay Bucks = $2.80!
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 $2.80

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 $7

Overall, you could earn over $35 per Unit over 25% and even better if you use eBay gift cards.  That's $175 if you buy 5!

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.
