Even the article in the link provided pointed out that "It remains to be seen whether or not attempts for free money such as these will work; Microsoft, eBay and the eBayer have all so far declined to respond to requests for comment."

It could go down that you end up paying $718 for 300 $2 bills, or $2.39 each.
well, i bought two things i needed, captured/printed screens and paid what i normally would have paid anyway.

it's like a magic genie - you get three purchases.

worst case scenario i don't lose anything.

maybe i make a little money, but i don't stand to lose anything.

eta: why do wal mart gift cards sell above the face value? "wal mart gift card" with these parameters: buy it now, $400 - $1000 yields three returns - all over $500 for $500 cards and as high as $600.
