Default $100 American Express Gift Cards

I get these $100 American Express Gift Cards as a perk for work. I'd much rather have the cash, so I'm selling them! At the store, these cost $105.95 each. (They are $100 plus a $5.95 activation fee.)

I'm selling them for $98 plus $1.31 for shipping, delivery confirmation included.

I accept Paypal and Google Checkout. If you pay with Google Checkout, I'll ship for free.

Check me out on eBay, my user ID is plim77 with a feedback rating of 2159 (and 99.5% positive).

Send me a PM with how many you'd like!

Paul

I say it's a scam. No pics and he's a newb. All to save us 69 cents. Let's see all these free cards you get from work.

Default Nope- not a scam.

Folks-

I'm sure pointing out scams is fun, but this one isn't. I sold the last one for $103.50 on eBay. Here is the link:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...9285&rd=1&rd=1

If the link doesn't work, it's item # 150138009285

I hate paying the eBay fees, so I thought I'd try here.

I have 7 of these cards, and can use them for groceries, but $700 is a lot of groceries, and I'd rather have cash more readily.

No, this isn't the best deal ever. But at the same time, there are people that buy these cards. They pay $105.95. I can save them $5 by getting mine.

And somebody said I got these 'for free.' No, I got them as a perk from work (in addition to my salary). I earned them... My labor wasn't free. In case you're wondering, businesses will often give these as bonuses instead of a paycheck- something to do with taxation and benefits. (Ask a HR person.) You'd know that if you were actually gainfully employed.

Who buys them? People who want to give them as gifts. People who don't like using credit cards and don't want to carry a lot of cash in the wallet. (Personally, I used 3 of them on my vacation trip.)

My most frequent buyers are people who have funds in their Paypal account (from selling on eBay and so forth). They don't have a bank account registered (because no one should if they actually read the terms & conditions), and this is the best way for them to access the $ in their account.

It's really easy to sit back and give attitude, especially when you're a computer geek, hiding behind your computer.

Still think it's a scam, then check my feedback on eBay. Not sure if I'm the same person? Confirm it by sending me an e-mail through eBay.

Not the best deal, it's still cheaper than buying these cards at a retailer. A scam? The buyer would be protected through his/her credit card or Paypal account. C'mon people- let's get real.

You're obviously not going to sell these here. Keep it on Ebay please.
