I regularly buy discount gift cards through an assortment of websites that are on the up and up. I recently took a risk on an eBay one that I fully expected to be a scam (heavily discounted from a new/limited but all positive feedback account). Figured with the security of paypal and a burner eBay account - what’s the worst that happens.
Turns out it is NOT a scam! Which makes for a pretty nice discount on something I’m paying for no matter what. He actually reached out and said the $100 codes were gone, but here is a $50 and $60 code to make up for it.
Maybe he’s selling my email address to people? Idk, idc - it’s a burner email connected to the account.
Thought the deal was worth passing along to oppo for interest
