Interesting way for the eBay seller to generate URs at <$0.02/point. I don't see a play for MSers though.

they go for 20% discount periodically so don't think this is good price

Only if you were able to buy them and then use them to buy gas gift cards at OM, then sell them to gift card Zen or cardpool at 10% off, you would break even at least minus postage, but would get miles for the purchase.
You would not be getting the 5x miles for an ink office supplies purchase.

The big IF, is does OM accept it's own gift cards for other gift cards?

New Deal - $425 on eBay (15% off).

Per Frequent Miler's Quick Alert,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/500-OfficeMa...-/251445640740

The alert mentions YMMV in purchasing a Visa/MC GCs using the OM gift card.

Just wondering if anyone has had experience with this.

I only have one OM within reasonable distance; just wanted to get any input to see if it's worth attempting. I have no other need for an OM gift card, thus, wouldn't be nice getting stuck with that!

If its plausible, it could be a MM MS possibility?

Saw this aswell, and was wondering the same thing. Hopefully someone with experience will be able to provide a good response.
