Kroger is running an unadvertised (well… not very well advertised) sale of ITunes gift cards. It appears to run from December 7-20. We’ve been talking about it over at the Points With a Crew miles and points Slack channel.
I stopped by 2 stores today and at one of them there was nothing, and at one of them, there was a sign back at an auxiliary gift card stand
Kroger gift card sale details
It’s 15% off ITunes gift cards, but it excludes the $15 cards, the multi-packs, and the variable load ITunes cards (if your stores sell them). The limit on this appears to be a face value of $500, so you can buy 5 $100 cards, 10 $50 cards or 20 $25 cards (or any combination. A face value of $500 will ring up at $425. You do not need to load any type of digital coupon to your account – the discount has been coming off for me when I select “Pay Now”.
This should be good at all Kroger affiliates (Smith’s, Ralph’s, etc.) and should stack with the 4x fuel points on gift cards promotion. It appears that you get the fuel points on the face value of the card, so buying a full $500 in cards should cost you $425 and net you 2000 fuel points. So you can gas up your car, your mower, your boat, your tractor, your friend’s car, and the car of everyone you know 🙂
How to get started gift card reselling
If you’re interested in gift card reselling, you may want to check out my beginner’s primer on gift card reselling. It’s not super complicated (buy low, sell high). You will not believe how hard it was for me to resist the “Buy Lowe’s, sell High” pun there….
The big tool that I use for gift card reselling is this gift card scanner (typing in tons of gift card numbers and PINs is annoying, even if I do have an army of “minions” that I sometimes pay / coerce into typing as part of “homeschool” 😀
I also use these Scotty Peelers (to peel off the PINs on cards, though you have to be careful).
