If you’ve been on the hunt for the Kirkland Signature 4-piece Urethane Cover Golf Ball, here’s your chance because they’re back in stock!
They’re ~$30 for 2 dozen, shipping is ~$5, some states have taxes – and the limit is 2 per membership. If you’ve been looking for these either to resell or just have as gifts or to use, go go go!
The elusive Kirkland Signature Golf Balls are back
“While supplies last.” But considering Christmas is around the corner, these would make excellent gifts if you have a golfer in the family.
They’re also extremely easy to resell on eBay. I took a quick look and they’re selling for ~$40 per dozen.
If you got the limit of 2, you’d have 4 dozen golf balls.
With tax (I’m in Texas), I paid ~$19 per dozen ($76 / 4). Assuming I can sell each dozen for $40, I’d make $84 back from these ($160 – $76). If you can time the auctions or find a local buyer and sell them all at once, $80+ for a trip to the post office or to drop off is a pretty great return!
Plus, I used my Citi AT&T Access More card and got ~227 Citi ThankYou points. And $1.20 for being a Costco Executive member. That’s an extra $5 back – not a lot but hey, I’ll take it!
In all, and depending when you sell, there’s no reason you can’t make a cool $100 from these little guys.
A low-stress way to resell
I bought some appliances from Kohl’s to resell and found the whole experience arduous with the cutting UPCs, trip to the post office, waiting for the rebates, etc.
But this Costco deal would be a straightforward and rather inexpensive way to dip your toe into reselling. If you did 4 individual auctions on eBay, you could get four 5-star reviews in a row to boost your ratings. Also, ~$76 isn’t a lot to float until you can resell them.
What I might actually do is stick these in the closet until December and see if I can get $50 or more per dozen from last-minute Christmas shoppers, which would make my net return even higher. Plus, I’ll get to see if I like reselling enough to keep doing it when deals like this pop up.
If you can’t tell, I’m still a little new to reselling – but even still, this deal is a no-brainer if you have a Costco membership.
Thought I would share. If you:
- Know a golfer or like golfing
- Want to do some light reselling
- Want to stash away some presents
- Have been waiting for this product to return
NOW is the time to buy! I don’t expect these to be available online for long. They’re almost always sold out. And with the holidays coming up, it should be easy to resell these or give as gifts in a few weeks.
Let me know if you snag the deal! Good luck!* If you liked this post, consider signing up to receive free blog posts in an RSS reader and you’ll never miss an update! And thanks for using my links to apply for new card offers!
