20% Ebay coupon...how to use it to make money? Gold coins?
I put (8) 1oz gold coins in my cart and proceeded to checkout - when entering the coupon it gave me a discount of $2,202.81. With cashback and ebay bucks I would get another $300 off which makes my cost per coin around $1060. The APMEX buying price for the coin is $1,273. Soooo, that means I would walk away with a profit of around $1700.
Does this sound right? Do you think Ebay will cancel the transaction with such a large discount? The fine print on the coupon doesn't say anything about a maximum discount. Should I go for broke and buy a lot more? Even with 15 coins the discount just keeps going up (~$4100).
