A while back I bought a group of tickets for a show – I figured I could get a group of people together to catch it, and I was hoping it’d be a sell out show. Well, that concert is this week, and it’s looking like my plans fell through… which means the show, which is now a SOLD-OUT show, is fair game to be profited on!
I bought six tickets for a little over $300. Checking recent ebay bids shows two tickets going for $250. ($250×3=$750 for the math illiterate, $750-$300=$450 profit)
I was kind of surprised by this – it’s a lot of pop-rock bands, and I was interested in seeing two – ZZ Top and Velvet Revolver (you know, before Scott Weiland is in jail again – I missed Stone Temple Pilots). That left Wife and I with the dilemma – should we stay or should we go? With an upcoming move slated, we’re leaning towards selling the tickets.
What about Ebay Success stories?
I know of one, with my brother-in-law running an ebay store that he currently pulls a profit on. The man has an eye for deals and I’ve seen him spend $10 and make $100. He exemplified frugal living to me – thrift master/shopper, finding deals everywhere he went. His future store will be at Janafrog.com – toys for good boys and girls! I’m hoping he’ll have it running soon.
Personally, I’m attempting to sell more items off on ebay – unfortunately it’s adding items to my to do list. My next goal is to help get things done.
