    my friend got a $2,000 amazon.com gift voucher from work - but wants cash not items - what thing or things can he get to re-sell on ebay or craigslist for the best resale value etc?

    and sell the quickest

    maybe a apple imac 27" for $1,600 just a thought that came to my mind..

    suggestions? ...........

    Was justthe first thing that came to my mind. Would that be a better bang for his buck as far as a quick resale would go? He is in chicago if anyone wonders

    Why not just sell it off for like 20% less, and take the $1600 cash? I think that would be a lot easier...

    you think he could sell it - it is already in his basket on his account - doubt it is transferable and i think it may be rather difficult to post an ad on CL saying he come buy $2,000 worth of items off of amazon.com and just bring me $1,600 in cash - would think most people would stay away thinking it could be a scam until the items were actually delivered in the mail to them

    any other suggestions... ?

    Couldn't he sign up for Amazon affiliate program and then go on Amazon and buy stuff then sell it? He could sell what he buys plus get a commission for buying stuff through his affiliate link
