With the economy in shambles, there’s still a surefire way to make your ends meet and that is by selling everything you own on eBay. I once read about some guy who sold his soul on eBay (it was in a jar). You can figure out weird ways to earn cash the eBay way by checking out Weird eBay Listings, one of my favorite sites.
While I am a frequent eBayer “window shopper” and a sometimes buyer, I have never sold an item on the site…until now.
A few weeks ago my best friend Sarah bought me a TinkerBell game for my (pink) Nintendo DS. I was thrilled with the prospect of playing with little fairy folk on a tiny screen. However, the game is rated “E” for everyone, so it’s a little, uh, boring for us older folks. Plus, I can’t figure out where to get the lapis luzil to help bring in winter! For hours now, I’ve had TinkerBell flying around talking to all the fairies and I can’t figure out where to find this stupid gemstone. It’s terribly frustrating, and I just don’t need this kind of stress in my life. How will the fairies in Pixie Hollow every bring winter to the main land (where we live) if I don’t gather all the materials asked of me, including the lapis luzil?!
So I decided to sell my game on eBay (check listing). If I had taken it to GameStop, I would only get 20% off my next purchase, which means I have to make a purchase. Meanwhile, the store will sell my used Tinkerbell game for $24.99 (which isn’t a deal since the game only costs $29.99 brand new)
I could have uploaded the stunning photograph I took of my TinkerBell game, but that costs 15 cents extra and the stock images were free. Every cent counts, right? I wanted to show potential buyers that the game was most certainly in “like new” condition. I guess I’ll just have to post the picture here.
If you’re interested in getting a TinkerBell Nintendo DS game for a little girl in your life, I know where you can get one on eBay. Just click here and drive up that bidding. I’ve got my eyes on Super Mario Brothers game…and if it stinks, I can alway sell it on eBay.
UPDATE: The final bid was $20.50! Cha-ching!
