who doesn't love free money? thanks!

The 10% off code may not be compounded with the standard discount. By that i mean if you try to buy a Macy's gift card that is 11% off and apply that coupon, you will pay more. Still a great site!

And why would you try for Macy's, if the OP clearly states:

Good deal for gc's with the coupon, however many if not most of the other can be gotten cheaper on fleabay.

can't use the coupon code on gifts not listed. so.. no good for me.

A quick check of 4 stores shows that the discounts on eBay are approximately 1/3rd of the discounts from giftcardrescue.com.

You can score the occasional mega-discount on cards at eBay, but anytime there's bidding involved, it's highly hit-or-miss. I just bought some Barnes & Noble cards off eBay today for about 15% off---which is at least 5% better than any of the giftcard recycling sites in my experience.

The amazing thing to me is how many sites have sprung up selling dumped gift cards in the last year or two. There must be a dozen. Just FYI, a good umbrella site to search all the dealers (including eBay) is Giftcard Granny. Shows you what's available from whom, and compares the discounts for you.

Just a word of warning about buying gift cards off of eBay. I routinely purchased discounted (10%-15%) Starbucks gift cards and then loaded them on my Starbucks gold card which gave me some added benefits. One day out of the blue Starbucks zeroed out my gold card which at the time had roughly $400 on it. I called Starbucks and was told my account was closed pending an investigation. After several weeks of no information they finally told me that some of the gift cards I used were purchased with stolen credit cards. They would give me no additional information and now I'm trying to figure out who sold me the cards so that I can try and get my money back thru paypal/eBay. The problem is that I purchased from multiple sellers and I have no way of knowing who screwed me over. I only purchased cards from established sellers with positive feedback so you just never know. Expensive lesson for me. So, be careful.

@aarzi,

The OP has an edit time after @BrycePGH's post. Before you make your reprimand do you know what the unedited OP was? Just saying.

you're joking right? the edit was done 2 minutes after the post went up, and way before bryce's post. Aarzi knows what he's talking about! please...stop playing detective sherlock.

lil fyi, you can get most gift cards for 20-30% off craigslist.. (in fact, if you had some capital handy, you could suck up all the gift cards off craigslist and turn a sweet 10-20% profit by reselling them on eBay... just saying, if i had a few grand cash laying around, i'd do it, especially with everyone trying to unload after the holiday season)

lots of risks...

having to meet people in person, get robbed of your "few grand" cash, stolen gift cards w/stolen credit cards that can get cancelled.

For a gc here and there, fine, but your advice is not sound for "mass" purchases IMO.

Something similar happened with me during the whole Bing/MS Cash-back days. I bought ~$1000 worth of Ammazon gift cards. I pride myself in doing my research before hand, and the person I bought from had 100% feedback, with hundreds of feedback. Came to my account to order something and ALL were invalidated. Ammazon never told me why or gave me ANY info, other than there was "an investigation". I threatened the person selling the cards with legal action. Luckily he had purchased them from someone else, and it was THAT person who had done some shady business. The seller eventually refunded my money, but I didn't think it was going to happen.

Would have to agree. More importantly (I think): eBay's confiscatory fees necessitate acquiring the gift cards at a 40-50% discount, not 20-30%, to really clear any meaningful profit---unless the glory days of Bing CashBack return. After all, eBay buyers will not be paying face value for the cards.

aarzi,

I think KTG meant, a seller on eBay would have to acquire the gift card at a significant discount to begin with to turn a profit on eBay since most "buyers" don't expect to pay full/face value for them and you'd have to the pay the fees on top of selling it below face.

I've searched for giftcards on eBay lately and been surprised by the extremely low discounts. In some cases the larger value giftcards were going for close to, or at face value which intuitively made no sense. I was told that it's because the huge volume eBay sellers rack up large amounts of eBay dollars and the giftcards are a quick way to convert those eBay dollars into cash.

In for TGIF's. Will use with my discount coupons.

very true

I would rather be risk-free and worry-free than try and save a few dollars on a GC (Pertaining eBay, i.e.)

Great post OP. Greenz

I'm interested in the Sonic one. The price for $100 GC is $90. I applied the coupon and it took $9 off. So my final price is $81.00.

How did you get the $76 that is posted? Am I doing something wrong?
