~5% ROI for 10% eBay Bucks

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

Many have been targeted for 10% in eBay Bucks until tomorrow.  Just check the eBay homepage to see if you were targeted.

These are great times to load up on your eBay purchases if you can find what to buy.

Disclaimer:  I will not be participating in this deal.  There is not enough profit since too many things can go wrong.  ~5% ROI can too easily turn into breakeven or a loss, especially if a lot of people buy.  If you are someone who knows how to sell on Amazon, do yourself a favor, skip this one.  

If you are looking for an opportunity to learn how to use FBA and you don't mind possibly losing a little bit (or potentially a lot) of money on the way, this is a good way to start, especially with eBay Bucks as a little cushion.

Here is one idea for the beginner:

eBay is selling a Dell D2015HM Monitor for $60

The same monitor is $84.49 on Amazon, which is $70.26 after fees.

Ranked 49th in Monitors so should sell fast.

Shipping is likely about $5-$7, maybe cheaper if you can get them all into one box.

You will earn $6 in eBay Bucks per monitor if you spend more than $100

You can also buy eBay gift cards to juice it a bit.  You can buy from Gyft or from PayPal Digital Gifts with Chase Ink for 5x Ultimate Rewards.  You can buy from MPX app and earn up to 2.5 United points per dollar and credit card points.

This is not going to earn you to much but it can be a nice opportunity to learn the FBA system.  For something like this you either want to be the first one or the last one to sell.  Prices will likely tank in between.
