I have great news for you! Jordan Malik has JUST updated his Resell Toys guide which now has over 130 games that you can purchase used and sell on Amazon (and even eBay) for a profit. I got free access to this update because I had purchased the original, and Jordan is a cool guy like that! You get lifetime updates.
It’s cool because I have a list of games in my head that I always keep my eyes open for, and now I have EVEN MORE! There were more than 40 games in this guide that I had never even heard of. Some that I have completely skipped over before at thrift stores, and now I am kicking myself because I prejudiced them and didn’t even scan them. That is one reason that I think these lists are really helpful. Once you look at all of the items, they will be in your subconscience. The next time you see them, you will recognize them. This saves you time because you can go immediately to games that you recognize and then focus on ones that you have never seen before.
There are so many places that you can look to find these games and the guide goes into detail about it. Most of us know that you can find used and new board games from thrift stores or yard sales for just a few dollars. But, have you checked craigslist? Have you done classified ads looking for the ones that you want to sell? If not, Jordan gives you examples that you can use to find these gems on your own locally. There are 10 free ways that you can find these games included in the guide.
When I got this guide originally, I used it in conjunction with b.l.e.s.h.a. (buy low eBay sell high amazon). I wanted to add new games to my used ones I was finding and used eBay to do so. I set up alerts on my phone to let me know when one of my saved games was listed as new. I can’t believe I’m giving away that “secret” I love using this method because it is like Christmas every time a package comes. I did get a few games that were not able to be listed as new on Amazon, but overall, I have been pleased with my results.
I have previously sold this “Nightmare Video Board Game” for $25 used (collectible for Amaozon) and then went on to find it on eBay NEW where I paid $50 and turned around and sold it for $170.
If you are looking for a nice way to add extra items to your Amazon inventory, without spending a lot of money to do so, I would recommend the toy guide. When buying toys for 1-5 dollars you can easily see profits of $20+.
My personal tip would be this: When you get started with used games, don’t go overboard at first. You have to spend time making sure that these games are complete and in good condition before sending them to Amazon. If you don’t stay on top of it you could end up with a heaping pile of games that need to be sorted through. If you don’t think that you have time for used games, I would still recommend getting this list so that you can keep an eye out for these games in new condition. Even try out the b.l.e.s.h.a. method I mentioned above.
In a post awhile back I also shared how I used b.l.e.s.h.a. to buy health and beauty items in bulk on eBay to resell on Amazon. You can see that post here.
The price of this guide has been $27 since it came out a couple years ago. Jordan will be raising the price of this guide on November 8th, 2013 to almost double what it is now. The price is great right now, and will still be worth it when it goes up! I have sold single board games from this list that more than pay for the cost.
