Right now Paypal is offering a $15 rebate when you buy one of their credit card readers for $15. You can find these at most stores such as, Best Buy, Staples, TigerDirect, and Newegg. I chose to buy mine at my local Staples since I get 5X points with my Ink Bold Card. You can only get 3 rebates per US Paypal account, but I have three accounts between my wife and I so I bought 9. I then sold these on eBay for $4.95 each.
Profit = Cost – (Rebate + Sales – eBay Fees)
Cost: 9 (readers) x $15 = $135
eBay Sales: $44.55
eBay Fees: ~$6.68
Points Earned: 135 x 5 = 675 UR Points
Profit: $37.87 and 675 UR Points
All of this takes less than an hour if you Staples is within a 15 minute drive, so it’s a great deal! This is what they look like when you open them:
