Default WalMart gift cards for sale on Ebay....

What the?! What am I missing here? A $500 gift card for $533 Buy-it-Now?! Ok, I know there is the "Bing Bonus"+"Ebay Bucks" is that it? Is there something else I am missing? Figured it would be an easy way to get money out of PayPal by buying WalMart gift cards to reload my WalMart money card....now, seems like too much of a hassle.

Yeah I have noticed that gift cards will sell for more than what they are actually worth. It makes no sense to me

Its cause some places dont have walmarts or people to lazy to goto walmart and shop so they pay little extra to buy the cards on ebay and shop walmart.com

you can use walmart gift cards to load walmart money cards and get cash out of a giftcard or is it for walmart use only?

I have used WalMart gift cards to reload the money cards, that's why I was looking, I figured I could get a high dollar gift card for slightly less than it's worth (I sold a $200 Best Buy gift card for $185 on Ebay a few months ago) and then also get the Ebay bucks...

Also could be some sort of pre Bankruptcy thing ..most credit cards give low cashes advances now adays--- my paypal credit card has a 5k limit but only $200 cask - weird -so maybe buying the walmart card to than re-flip for cash as if they are using the credit card as a payment for paypal--kinda of like how Foodstamps are often done ....I worked in Finance for years and did Credit Consultation and all clients usually knew to drive up the cards wait 13mos and than file ..not sured but intrigued by this too.

This could also come in handy if u have to return something w/o a recipte u! cause they put the money on a giftcard to use only at walmart so i could take that gift card and load the walmart greendot money card and get it back in cash at a atm.

This could be sweet if u could get the sellers of walmart giftcards on ebay to email u the giftcards rather then mail it to u in the mail.

I use giftcards to build my feedback. I sell a $10.00 card a day, they go for anywhere between 10-10.50.

Its guaranteed + feedback.

After doing some research .. some people appear to pay more as they buy for gifts but live in Rural areas so they would spend $10-20 in gas to get the gift card....others say drug cartels use them to smuggle money out of the country ...some say they are charged sales tax on them but i dont think that is true ...some say it is employees of the stores that get some kind of extra discount for gift cards... some say it is just scam and the buyers scam it somehow....itunes cards seem to sell for way more tha face value ... so who knows -lol

Gift cards are very high risk items. You're only allowed to sell one at a time, and there looked at very, very closely.

Just confirmed you cannot indeed reload your WalMart moneycard with a WalMart gift card. Bummer dude. I forgot to see if you can purchase green dot money packs with Wal Mart gift cards. Anyone wanna save me a trip to the Mart of Walls and no if this is a possibility?

Here's where you said it. Now all of a sudden it doesn't work? Green Dot is cash only.

Yeah, I was mistaken. I got a Wal Mart giftcard off Ebay for the express reason to reload a money card. I then sent said money card with the girlfriend and she ended up buying a bunch of stuff and then putting money into my card, leading me to believe it worked....my bad.
