Frankly I think if you cut a gem or enchant something for someone off trade chat then you're a sucker. You can get the gems from turning in badges or honor, cut them and put them up on the AH for 150-200g.For enchants, you get the mats from running heroics anyway, so just buy a vellum, enchant it and up on the AH it goes. 300-500g profit (minus the cost of the vellum).But if you'd rather sit there in trade chat, working for people who think 1g is proper payment for someone to "just push a button" go right ahead.

I see it the other way around: Only a sucker would buy gems off the AH.I took all my EoTs on from all 5 of my 80s (over 7k total) and just turned them all into epic gems. I turned all my SKS and MWG into honor/gems. I've got 10 stacks of uncut cardinal rubies sitting in my bank, with half a dozen stacks of each of the other colors.On my server, 200g gets you ONE runed cardinal ruby. All I have to do is take out one from my bank, bring it to a jewelcrafter, and I'm out 10g. At that rate, I can get 20 gems cut for 200g, which I'll do.I'lI turn around and sell those cut gems on the AH for 200g each. It's a dick move, but again, only a sucker would actually buy gems off the AH.

fortunately, the suckers who buy things in the auction house are much more worthwhile to cater to. Not that they're all suckers, there's certainly stuff sold there cheaply or below mat cost, and there's a convenience there as well. It's not worth my time to search for someone willing to work for cheap in trade. If you're perpetually broke, then maybe it is. Everything has a cost.
