Best way to get rid of amazon.ca gift card balance?

I have over 700 dollars in amazon gift card balance, already redeemed so i can't sell the gift cards.

I already bought everything i need and want off of amazon.ca

I was wondering if there was a item that would give me a high resell value

thanks a bunch!

How long do you have till the balance expires? If anything you can keep for future stuff..

As for Items that have re-sell value.. If anything you buy It at regular price and try to sell for receipt price so that way you get your cash back.

I don't think there are items that you can buy low sell high on Amazon because they're kinda like a store.. As the prices are really discounted to buy low and sell high.

umm the balance doesn't expire,

amazon.ca doesn't have a huge selection, and i don't think i can sell most items there at receipt value because its usually priced lower elsewhere.


edit: would this work? making another account, selling something ridiculously high, and then buying it with my original account

Yeah a second account would work but you have to make sure it's created and used etc on a different IP address because Amazon will detect multiple accounts on your IP and suspend/block your account.. Use a VPN or something and a secondary address...

Wait and buy a camcorder/computer/laptop/cell phone/watches/etc when you want those later.

Alternatively, start ordering any gifts that you want to give to people online now.
