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.
20% off Select iPad Models at Staples – iPad Air 2 64GB $480 and 128GB for $560 https://t.co/UVFL974Y6c

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.
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..
No sales tax in Oregon.
