How I save 5% on eBay when I shop for cards with BigCrumbs
Unless you live under a rock, you should know that eBay IS a great place to shop for sports cards if you are a buyer! It's truly a buyers market, some would say that they wrecked card prices for everyone, others would say they are making it more affordable to own the cards you always wanted for your PC (personal collection). Now eBay has launched eBay Bucks, a program that will reward you for actually shopping at eBay when you make purchases. They count up all your purchases 4 times a year and give you eBay dollars that you can spend just like a regular dollar.
Now anyone that knows me, will tell you that I am always looking for a good deal! I spend WAY, and I mean WAY to much on buying up sports cards and hobby boxes to just hope to break even (but lets face it, its more about the fun of the chase anyways). So my intent is to show you how I save a little extra and then take that money that I saved and bundle it to buy some more hobby boxes to break or that sweet autograph from your pc player!
You should be already enrolled in the eBay program by default, now comes the third party: BigCrumbs to save the day! What BigCrumbs does is actually pretty simple, but I have some fancy pants graphics for you visual people. BigCrumbs created a system where they have partnerships with companies like eBay, Amazon and about every other company known to man, to where when they bring their buyers through the BigCrumbs website, they pay BigCrumbs. That's great, but now do I get my 3% and why are you making me read this much?! Now with this money, BigCrumbs tracks all your purchases done through your account and gives you the biggest share of this money from their special partnership. Normally So it works out to be 3% paid to you, BigCrumbs keeps 1% for doing all the hard work and then the person who referred you gets a small percentage of 1%. So in total eBay is paying BigCrumbs 5% to bring them hungry buyers!
This ads up over time, because you are getting the 3% from BigCrumbs and 2% from the eBay Bucks program, leaving you with (calculator check please?) 5% off your eBay purchases!!!!!!! Pretty neato, get 5 bucks back for buying a $100 box of cards (you know you spend more than $100, or if your girlfriend or wife is watching, I meant to say $10 not 100 !
Why I like to use this is that over time, I get a few hundred bucks back and then I can go buy more using the same method and then with this I am able to even get cash back on my cash back money!
Now before you all run out and say how this is a "scam" or something like that (because we all know it's fun to try and prove people wrong), I have gotten paid 3 times from them! On top of that, my friends and family have also got paid. As well as several thousand other people. Now I am also going to let you know that if you sign-up under me, you will be my friend on their system (you want to be my friend right?) and I get a little kick back for letting you know about BigCrumbs (around 1% of everything you purchase), so if you find it in your heart to join with me and start getting some cash-back I would appreciate the referral! By the way, once you are signed up, you can also refer people and make a little extra sports card buying money for the future.
