Staples 20% off iPads

I have had a bit of a dry spell the last couple of weeks so this morning I was happy to see the following tweet from Oren’s Money Saver.

I have been consistently selling 64 GB iPad Air 2s for $544.99.  This usually works out as a net to me of $511.  So at $480 per iPad that is a $31 profit.  Pretty good but it is better with a shopping portal, Chase INK, and Staples Rewards.  

With all of the above the deal breaks down like this.

  • iPad Air 2 64 GB
  • MSRP = $599
  • Amazon Sale Price = $544.99
  • Purchase Price = $479
  • Amazon Fee + Shipping = $38.56
  • Upromise 5% Cash Back = $23.95
  • Staples Rewards 5% Cash Back = $23.95
  • Chase Ink 5x = 2395 UP Points
  •  Profit = $75.33 + 2395 UR Points

That my friends is a good reselling opportunity.  I keep telling myself I want to branch out and today I was going to take advantage of this HP deal but iPads are so damn easy to unload via Amazon.  So I am doing this one instead.   I bought two.  An expected $150 in profit for about 15 minutes worth of work, not bad at all.

  1. Why do you not account for sales tax in your estimates for the purchase price? Am I missing something? At 7% as it is in my state (MS) it will eat up a large portion of the profit..
