I used to buy $100 Ebay GC for $95. then use that gc to buy another discounted gc like bp gas $100 for $95.

I haven't bought discounted ebay gc for long time.

yesterday used last of my Ebay gcs to buy exxon mobil $100 for $95. (on top of that got 6% ebay buxx) about 5% initial ebay gc + 6%buxx + 5% exxon + 3% discover it ~ 19%

best I can do is 3% + 5% + 6% ~ 14%

one risk some gcs like bp are no longer accepted in some areas. And risk of misplacing cards (I've never done that that I know of) And using gas buddy can find cheaper station like shell.

Kmart used to have lots of SYWR points. Although I knew it would be frustrating/entertaining experience could get some decent deals.

I still come to SD to find lowest priced deals but mostly items I need (less impulse buying)

Anyone else finding above to be true?
Other GC deals? (the closer to cash the better)
