not sure if this is the right section, but here goes
my bday is coming up, and as a Bestbuy Reward Zone member, i get a 3x points certificate from them as a gift. id love to take advantage of this, on a big ticket item, but unfortunately i dont have any need for a big ticket item such as a tv or an appliance. so, i thought maybe i can get a 70-200 IS II from them for $2500, and get the whopping 7500 points, and then resell the lens as BNIB.
i see these come up on FS all the time, but not BNIB. can i recoup my $2500, or will i be likely looking at a small loss, all for just points?
