    This is my first post. Please give me feedback on my money making idea.

    The idea is to buy a bunch of Amazon gift cards for 30% off. Then redeem the gift cards on Amazon and buy MacBook Pros. Then resell the MacBook Pros brand new for 15% off and make a profit. I need to know TODAY if this is a good idea or not.

    The idea can only work today because GiftCardMoon.com is selling Amazon gift cards for 30% off today only, so I have to decide today if this is a good idea or not.

    I'm pretty sure people would love to buy MacBooks brand new at a discount. Is it legal to resell MacBooks without being an authorized reseller? Do you think people will think the MacBooks are stolen and decide not to buy from me?

    I dont think its wise to be honest with you at least with Mac Books (you have to think about seller fees, 10% and the fact that you'd be selling them for probably 90-95% anyway) , but your choice. In addition the fact that it "ships" on september 30th is just a huge red flag tbh. Would not buy

    You probably won't make much after all the fees. Even then chances of returning. If everything you said is true it would take a great deal of money to actually make a good chunk.

    but if your hyped ... go for it. Don't let anyone hold you back.

    Sounds like you figured it out. Are you just wanting to hear someone go.

    Yeah

    I wouldn't sell them on eBay. I would probably use Craigslist or something to avoid the fees. And reselling the gift cards themselves is unfortunately out of the question. Those "sell us your gift card" companies low ball you. So the only option is to buy a product that sells fast with a 10% to 15% discount below retail.

    Does it not make you suspicious that the gift card gets to you 1 month + from today?

    It's a pre-order for a new design. I know people that have purchased gift cards from them. So I'm not worried, although I would prefer not to wait.

    Does anyone know about the legality I spoke about? If I purchase a MacBook at retail, I should be able to resell it because its mine, right? I know I should "ask a lawyer", but does anyone know?

    If you are going to throw your money away may I suggest taking a nice holiday in a cheap and exotic place with hot bitches instead? I hear Thailand should be good though I've never tried it. That way at least you'll get some bang for your buck instead of being stuck with half of your living room filled with macbooks that no one is going to buy.

    Not that I have any experience in reselling,but I would not spend that money for this.
    Better create an authority site in some niche and promote it with the money you have,just my two cents,it would be a long term business that would bring you money everyday
