Today there has been a nice sale on the Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones at Amazon.com and BestBuy.com. The sale puts these headphones at $179.00 — $100 off of the regular price. I first saw this sale at Running with Miles this morning. A member of our Frequent Miler Insiders posted to ask if these were good for a resale opportunity. I responded that I didn’t think so for a number of reasons. However, another member of our Frequent Miler Insiders group pointed out an even better opportunity with a new Amex Offer that I hadn’t seen today — though it turned out I had it on my SPG Business card:
Ebags: Spend $125 or more, get $25 back (Expires 1/8/18)
This offer seems highly targeted as I only had it on my SPG Business card (as did Mona in our Frequent Miler Insiders group). As Mona pointed out, that’s great because eBags also has the Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones in sale for $179.99 today. That drops the net cost to $154.99 before tax (though I think eBags doesn’t collect tax in most states). That would bring these into a range where resale may be possible (though somewhat risky) — and it’s a very good deal if you’re looking to own a pair of these.
Most portal terms exclude electronics from eBags in their terms, though some readers have reported success in the past on certain electronics items. I haven’t had success with any electronics from eBags — but there are some attractive payouts today, so it may be worth a shot (please comment if you have made any recent electronics purchases from eBags and successfully earned portal rewards).
And it looks like the claim of these being “$100 off” isn’t just marketing hype. According to camelcamelcamel, this is $100 off of the regular price:
Thanks to the members of our Facebook group for pointing this one out. It was already a pretty good deal. If you have this Amex Offer, it could be a great deal if you’re looking for a pair of these headphones.
