Sterling Silver Starbucks Card

Just saw that someone received this as a present and loves it... talk about stupidly trading $200 (plus tax) for $50.

Interesting is that they had a similar item in 2012, which sold on ebay for $729.  Heck, even this one is selling regularly for $350 on ebay.  Interestingly, this may actually be a good buy.

Hey -

Try to maximize on the stupidity if you can...

As I post this the item is at $303, has 28 bids, and a little over 2 hours left.

Already a profit.

My wife sells so much stuff on ebay that you can just buy on Amazon for half the price.  She actually uses the Amazon arbitrage game where she'll go to Amazon every day, pick a few products that are selling for $20, and list them for $40 on ebay.  She ships the item right to their address as a gift using Amazon Prime.  No inventory storage, risk of not selling the items, packing, or going to post office to mess with.  You would be surprised how many items she sells this way.  It is like people don't know how to use internet search tools at all.

Damn, that's awesome. Just random items?

There are at least 3 Starbucks addicts in my family who went nuts on the day this was released and "had to have it" (-,-); Ughhh..
