Do People Sell Gift Cards On eBay?...

Last night Megan was looking at stuff on eBay. As someone who rarely uses eBay, I asked whether anyone ever tries to sell gift cards on it.

Of course they do!

Just a warning, though. None of you mother-effers better bid on the $15 Red Lobster gift card. Valentine's Day is coming up and that fucker is MINE!

I look once in a while for gift cards and it's hard to get a really good deal.

There are actually many, many sites out there where you can buy and swap gift cards. Grandma gave you a gift card to Victoria's Secret? Swap it for one from Bass Pro!

Cora said...

People sell coupons on ebay too. I've seen 'em. Doesn't sound like a good deal to me.

I just wanted to say I am laughing my butt off at Flannery's comment!

The last time I went to Red Lobster they had a magician that went from table to table. I'm totally bidding on the gift card dude!

Question: Why don't you just buy the gift cards from the actual place yourself? Does eBay put some kind of magic dust on it that makes it special?

Of course now, you can tell I use eBay only once in never...

Also, I awarded you an award. Because it shows I care! Go pick it up and congratulations for being awesome!

This Christmas, I almost regifted an Olive Garden card I received two years ago, but decided I couldn't live with the guilt.

The card is yours. Me and my woman only go to Sizzler.

I've tried selling my used gift cards on e-Bay. Surprisingly, no takers.

Greta said...

There ARE people out there who think a gift card for $14.95 is an awesome deal. Believe me. The majority of my tables fall into this category.

eBay Ticket Selling said...

eBay price you feel you need to profit. You can use the drop shipper to sell a product for almost a tie. The chances are perhaps forget to add the cost of the item cost when you try to sell on any platform. Need to cover all costs and figure the profit margin to keep the business a long time.

Plastic Card said...

Gift cards have become increasingly popular as they relieve the donor of selecting a specific gift.

Muddassar Shah said...

Gift cards have been criticized for the ability of the issuing authority to set rules that are detrimental to the consumer.
