  1. Anyone have any ideas on how to maximize this offer for reselling purposes? I’ve been looking at the Bose QC25 for $179 (matching the price of Amazon/Best Buy until 11/11/17), but considering I’d have to buy two (totalling $360), the $50 savings only amounts to 13.8%-off, so the Amex Offer discount barely covers the sales tax. Mr. Rebates and Chase are paying out 3% CB on Dell, which is okay, but hardly spectacular.

    • Curmudgeon says:

      If you guys doing reselling are actually running it as a business, you should have filed with your state to collect/report sales taxes which exempts you from paying sales taxes on stuff you buy for resale.

      Just fill out a resale certificate and send to the vendor and your sales taxes disappear.

      Once you sell the items, you only need to collect sales tax if sold to someone in your own state. Should be an easy way to bump your profit margin by 8-10% (average sales tax amount)

        I’m curious if people do this when purchasing from Kohls, Target, Macy’s, etc. I’m guessing they’d block you from buying to resell if you tried to get the sales tax waived.
