Well, it's simple. Ebay is an auction-based website where you can purchase good others put up for sale. In regards to my example above, you can purchase pre-loaded Starbucks gift cards for approximately 15% off. I recently purchased a $200 gift card for $170. That is a lot of coffee for free! Determine what activities you do on a regular basis and take a look on Ebay to see if anyone has gift cards for sale.
However, before doing so there are frauds out there selling fake gift cards. Here are a few tips on auctions you might want to avoid:
- Check if the seller has good positive feedback. One or two negatives is OK if the majority are positives.
- Check the listing details to see if anything stands out. If something is weird, then do not bid.
- Also keep in mind that you are not going to get something for extremely cheap. For example, a $200 gift card will never sell for $100. If it is too good to be true, then avoid it.
- Check the images to make sure it is the right company, and that nothing is strange.
