I posted two articles last night on getting 8% discount on eBay gift cards and opting-in on targeted eBay Bucks offer. Today, I received an email offer for 4x eBay Bucks which is equivalent to 8% rebate on most eBay purchases! What great timing to write about and demonstrate how to take advantage of and stack eBay Bucks offers with eBay gift cards and cashback portal!
Example 1: 35 % discount on iTunes Gift card
Paypal Digital Gifts is selling $100 iTunes gift cards for $80.
Here’s the math:
- eBay iTunes deal: $100 x 0.8 = $80
- Pay using eBay gift cards @ 8% discount: $80 x 0.92 = $73.6
- 4x eBay Bucks rebate = $80 x 0.08 = $6.4
- TopCashback: $80 x 0.01 = $0.80 (OR InBox Dollars: $80 x 0.05 = $4)
- Total out of pocket = $73.6 – $6.40 – $0.80 = $66.40 → at least 33% savings on iTunes gift card!
Example 2: 37% discount on an Apple iPad Air 2 16GB Wifi
A brand new iPad Air 2 16GB is selling for $379.99. It’s $499 + tax at the Apple Store!
Here’s the math:
- Pay using eBay gift cards @ 8% discount: $379.99 x 0.92 = $349.59
- 4x eBay Bucks rebate: $379.90 x 0.08 = $30.40
- TopCashback: $379.99 x 0.01 = $3.79 (OR Inbox Dollars: $379.99 x 0.05 = $18.99)
- Total out of pocket = $349.59 – $30.4 – $3.79 = $315.40 → at least 37% savings on a brand new iPad!
These are just two examples, but the possibilities are endless! If you can find a good deal on any item on eBay, you can save even more by stacking the increased eBay Bucks offer with eBay gift cards and portal cashback.
If you don’t already have a TopCashback account, consider using my referral link to open an account. You’ll get $10 after your first purchase via the portal. I tried using InBox Dollars but have heard mixed reviews about tracking and payout, so I’m sticking with TopCashback for now.
This is what “The FPT (5+2) Model” is all about – saving money on everyday spending while helping sick kids!
