Hello, I just wanted to get $10 worth of Bitcoin and rates were pretty bad so I bought this Starbucks card. I am selling it at cost basically (I had some coupons) so price is $10 for a $15 card, BTC only. This is 100% legit, I bought it myself thus I can't offer replacements, but you can contact Starbucks if there are any issues as the card was bought from them with real money.
It is safe to add to your Starbucks account.

Obviously I am a newbie so you may doubt the offer, but what can I do, it's just one card so hopefully somebody will buy it.

EDIT: GONE.

Most sell for 50%, let me know if you can do that.

I can't sell it for less than I paid for it. If nobody buys it I will just use it myself. Like I said, the reason I am selling it is because it's hard to get $10 worth of BTC at a reasonable rate. Others are selling at 50% because they didn't pay for the cards.

In my opinion you should use it yourself...as people here would not be interested for this deal, I've seen Starbucks cards much lower than 50% on several marketplaces, most of them are carded/use of illegal tricks...but these days no one cares, they go for the cheapest option...Smiley Smiley

If you've bought it with your own money, then it might not be the best place to sell, also you are a newbie (me tooo..Tongue), so you are basically wasting your time and energy... may be you can try giftcard marketplace, sell the card, then buy BTC for $10 in any btc market, coinbase..etc...its not a big deal...

I agree with you. I think this shows one of the weak points of Bitcoin: lack of trust. It's hard to trust somebody you don't know online. I really like the idea of PayIvy and being able to sell goods with no hassle, as opposed to eBay and Amazon, but I see now that there are some drawbacks.

As for the btc markets you talk about, there are 3 types:
1) Offer very bad exchange rate or charge commission.
2) Require massive documentation / linking bank accounts / etc. Not worth the effort for $10.
3) Require me to physically meet with someone in person (i.e. localbitcoins).

Even 3) is hard to do for small amounts as few people are willing to waste their time. I will have to go with 3) now, as it is the most feasible solution. Normally I would just buy a higher amount which would make it easier, but at the current price of Bitcoin I feel like it may not be a good time to go long.
