It's just like flipping houses in a sense. Buy low, sell high.

What you need:
1. Some Cash
2. A promotion (such as on steam, cheapassgamer, etc.)

Step 1. Go to a website that offers bundled games and are on sale. These occur on steam often
Step 2. Buy all the games as gifts.
Step 3. Either wait a bit, or try selling the extra copies for cheaper than what it could cost for a single game
Step 4. Profit


Here's an Example:

1. http://store.steampowered.com/app/105600/
Buy the Terraria 4 Player Pack
2. Sell each copy for $7. That's a $13 profit. OR YOU COULD MAKE MORE MONEY BY USING TF2.
3. If you use TF2, you can utilize the new "trade games for items" function.
4. Open the New Trading Beta for Steam. Trade each game for a Bill's Hat
5. Sell the Bill's for $9 = $21 profit


This is just a quick guide put together I just thought of.

Have fun :D

I thought about doing this once with the black ops maps.

Buy for £10 or whatever

Sell 4 gameshares for £5 each, make £10 profit every time you buy the maps, and everyone else gets them £5 cheaper.

Profit for everyone =D

Sounds like a good idea, they'd have to be popular games though to make sure they sell.
Where do you resell them?
