For my next reselling attempt I purchased the following products.
- myCharge Portable Power Bank
- iPad Mini 3 16 GB Space Grey
- PS4 Arkham Knight Bundle
I bought the power bank from best buy during one of their daily deals. I cashed in some Best Buy rewards points and managed to get the thing for $15. It sells on Amazon for $99.
The iPad Mini 3 and the PS4 bundle I bought online from Target. For these purchases I managed to score a pretty decent discount. A couple of months ago I saw that Target was offering a $20 gift card if you signed up for a college registry. I did, but never saw the gift card. However, right before labor day weekend I received an email from Target offering me 15% off of anything in my registry that was unfulfilled. I added the iPad Mini 3 (also on sale for $75 off) and PS4 to my registry and purchased them with the 15% off code.
I also used my target Redbird for an additional 5% off. In the end I got the iPad for $261 and the PS4 for $322. The iPad sells on Amazon for $350 and the PS4 bundle for $457.
This will probably be the only and last time I buy an iPad Mini 3. They are a little risky right now because Apple is soon to announce a new iPad Mini. If all goes according plan, I would profit about $180. Not bad.
