    I have 2 Minis 64GB. I wanted to sell them but due to ebay policies I am not able to sell anymore apple products for 7 days :)

    They are sitting on my desk now. I want one, but being that they are the most expensive of the line and that I will probably not use LTE, it does not seem a good idea.... I guess I could return them...

    Should I open the box or not?

    If you bought them from Apple, they have a 14 day return policy, even if you open them.

    What did you do that ebay won't let you sell anymore?

    They can't get scratched if you leave them in the box. :)

    Apparently you can only have 4 listings a week for new apple and nintendo products. I am not sure why they have this limitation. It does not even let me list an old ipad 1st generation that I wanted to sell.

    ----------

    Got them from bb. I do not like to return open items. I sometimes sell stuff and I would not want to have the buyer return an open item to me. If I were to open, i would prob keep it.

    To flip them and make a profit off people who cannot wait to get one from apple.

    64G seems like a hard sell, Most people would go for 32G and mini 64G cut in real good to the regular size 32G price.

    If you sell the item on eBay at 700(at cost ) you have to pay the following fees:

    -insertion fee 1$
    - final value fee 38.5
    -paypal fee 20
    - shipping insured 22

    Only on ebay fees you loose 100$ almost.

    Apple sells the item for at least 100% profit.

    I made max 50$.

    It's your choice - open if you want - dont open if you want.

    Just wait 7 days and sell them for a profit.

    Obvious no?

    Maybe give a percentage of your profit to charity to make you feel better?
