Gift cards are always the old standby method of gift-giving – if you cannot find something else or you have no idea what to get someone, give a gift card! It is personally one of my favorite gifts, both to give and receive!
Going on now, eBay has a lot of gift card deals available. Some are better than others and I picked out the ones I felt give the best value.
When eBay runs sales on gift cards, it can be helpful for several reasons – cards sold by PayPal Digital Gifts earn 5x points when paying with Chase Ink cards, gift cards can be like cash at the retailer and you can buy them at a discount, you can earn eBay Bucks at 2% (and sometimes more – right now it is at 8% for many people), and you can even resell those gift cards for a profit at times. All in all, sales on gift cards on eBay are helpful in giving you a chance to increase your spending on cards where you need to meet a minimum spending amount or you are trying for a certain threshold bonus. One additional reason – it can help to save even more when you purchase actual eBay gift cards at a discount and use those to purchase these!

First up is the gift cards sold by PayPal Digital Gifts. It is cards bought from them that normally earn 5X points when you pay with your Chase Ink card. Not sure if this will continue forever, but it does work and makes a great incentive to buy these cards, even when they are regular price.
