View Full Version : Money Sports Authority Gift Card

I have a $333.00 gift card to Sports Authority that I'm trying to unload for cash. Does anyone have any large sporting goods purchases planned in the near future that could be made at Sports Authority. Craigslist has gotten me no leads thus far so I thought I'd turn to the planet. Anyone need any new golf clubs, jerseys, etc.

I apologize if this doesn't belong here or needs moved, etc. Thanks in advance for any serious responses. :thumb:

Eh, kinda sorta. We're looking at inversion tables, but generally we haven't been impressed with their prices. If you're looking to dump it for cheap, shoot me a PM with whatever you're considering.

I don't have a major purchase planned, so I'm with DaFace if he doesn't like your cheap price shoot me a PM and I'll see if it's cheap enough for me.

I'm not looking to give it away as I can always find something to waste it on if it comes to that. Honestly I'm hoping to get around $300 for it. Ideally if someone is going to make a purchase anyway this is just going to reward them with $30+ to take it off my hands.

Plus I'm sure he only does that at work, he wouldn't waste his own time writing that shit.No, I was referring to him making a bid for this for more than its worth like he did on Ebay last year for a Little Big Planet mini billboard. HE was sweating that one out for a few hours just because he wanted to bump the profit it up for Tiny since he was involved in the design of it. heh

Like I said I don't have to sell this, it isn't a fire sale, but I'd rather have the cash than the gift card. So, if someone has a planned purchase then I'd swap it for $300 and thus save them some money and get myself some cash, but I'm not in the position to take a beating on this.

I thought about that, but when I looked at where most were ending it seems like you can take a decent hit on it sometimes. Reserve auctions never do well from my experience either.

It has a better shot of working than CP :) Maybe you'll find the right person who is planning a purchase and would like to save $30. Just put in the description that you are wanting to sell if for $300 and put that at the reserve. The reason reserves don't work well is because no one knows what the reserve is.

My opinion doesn't really matter, but I think $275 would be pretty fair for both parties if someone was going to use it. The buyer gets a substantial savings with some degree of hassle and the guy unloading it gets a pretty good percentage back. Like I said though JMO. Good luck.

I thought this too, I just didn't say anything. The fact is, whatever you buy at Sports Authority you can get cheaper online. $275 is doing you a favor.

SA has a deal on a Taylor Made Burner 2009 driver with a fairway wood or hybrid for $299.99. I really like that driver (a friend has one) but I can't decide if I should make the purchase considering how often I play golf.....which isn't often. But damn, I like that driver.

Anyone have any opinions on that club?

Everybody spends money on shit they don't need. Although the 2nd PS3 for dedicated blu ray watching may be an indicator. Don't look at me though dude, I've got $500 dumped into a video game drum set.

It's a store credit w/ a $300 balance on it. It's not like I wiped my ass with it. :D It all spends like cash when you get to the register. If you're planning on making a purchase on anything sports related it may be worth the time to save some cash. Full Disclosure: I have never taken or attempted to take a bite out of this gift card. :)

Can't seem to send you a private message. There is no link to do so that I have found. Obviously I am new to the boards. Not a huge chiefs fan as I am not from the area. But I have a large purchase that I have been wanting to make at Sports Authority that I cannot find cheaper on the internet because it is a large item and shipping is expensive. I have verified paypal feedback and ebay which I could show you.

As I said, I understand not trusting me as I am new. But if you are interested in trying to make it work, send me a phone number and I will give you mine and we can talk about it and see if I can set your mind at ease. It would be me that would be at risk cause I would have to pony up some or all of the dough before you send the card.

Best wishes.

You should have PM abilities now. But yeah, stl, I would tread lightly.

Thanks for the PM abilities!

I am not looking to steal from anyone here. Been looking for a sizable sports authority card for some time. I want to buy something that is cheaper at sports authority than anywhere else because it is very heavy and thus shipping on internet purchases is prohibitively expensive.

As I mentioned in my PM to stlchiefs, the risk would likely be in my court as I would have to pay for the card before taking delivery of it. I can establish trustworthiness to stlchiefs by exposing my long established ebay account and or paypal account if that would help.

Anyway. If it doesn't work out, I understand and won't take it personally.

Have a good day. And go chiefs... Wait, what am I saying! I am a Niners fan! Now I KNOW the deal is off.

The clear solution for this is to send him a money order for, say double the amount. After he cashes the money order he can sent the balance back to you via Western Union. That way everybody is doubly protected.

Well, things worked out great between stlchiefs and I. What a great guy to work with. Took my payment via paypal and shipped out the gift card and got it to CA in two days in time for a big sale at Sports Authority. Now if I can figure out how rep points work here, I will try to leave some for him. Hints anyone, or I will just start pecking around.

Turns out the item I was looking to buy was 30% off and I found a 25% off a single item coupon that was good for 2 days. So ended up getting a huge steal on it. The sale and the coupons took it to nearly 50% off, plus the discount from the gift card = huge saving for me. I know others argued that SA price is already way marked up over buying on the web, but for big ticket items that are very heavy SA was cheaper than the web by far.

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks again to stlchiefs for his great communication, patience and delivering so fast and exactly as promised.

Thanks man.
