If a tank is on sale is it possible to buy it and then sell it for more or the same price when the sale ends?

Only if they're offering it for more than 50% off.

No, WG doesn't discount things more than 50% so at most you'll break even.

Exception being the Xmas specials where it is possible to buy at less than 50% and sell for a net profit.

Only at Christmas time, when it is possible to use the largest discount on the most expensive tank in the tier and later re-sell it at a profit. But it only works up to tier VII. The list from Christmas 2018 is produced below (Kudos to an NA player called Entrants for all the hard work);

Tier II - H35 - 2.1k - Still the winner, though the runners' up have changed...
Runner(s) up - M14/41 @ 2.05k, and 7TP @ 1.975k. You also have the following all at 1.95k: Strv m/38, VAE Type B, Chi-Ni, LT vz. 35, FCM 36, Loyd GC, and UC 2-pdr

Tier III - SU-26 - 26.5k - Unchanged
Runner(s) up - Any other arty are 22.5k - 25.5k. Those vehemently anti-arty can lose out on at least 3k with the following: Type 91 @ 23.25k, Pz 1 C @ 22.9k, M15/42 @ 22.7k, and Chi-Ha @ 22.5k

Tier IV - B1 - 92.5k - Unchanged
Runner(s) up - D.W. 2 @ 85k, Type 95 @ 83k, VK 20.01 D @ 78.5k, St.Pz. II @ 78k, and SARL 42 or Luchs @ 77.5k

Tier V - O-I Exp. - 222.5k - Unchanged
Runner(s) up - T1 Heavy @ 217.5k, Type T-34 @ 215k, AT 2 @ 212.5k, and StuG III G @ 211k

Tier VI - M4A3E2 "Jumbo" - 195k purchase, 487.5k sale, 292.5k net - Unchanged
Runner(s) up - Churchill GC @ 289.5k, and Hellcat or O-I @ 285k

Tier VII - O-Ni - 596k purchase, 745k sale, 149k net - Unchanged
Runner(s) up - T29, IS-2, and 45TP all @ 145k, or Crusader SP, Chi-Ri, T-34-2G FT, and P.43 ter @ 144k

So, for a total cost of 791k, you'll get back 1.5761m, or a net profit of 785.1k... Wow. Not that great, but making money.

Erm I think the Swede TDs were offered at 100% discount until the tier 5 then lesser % up to the TX. So there are credits available there.

 

But then who plays those lines as they are awful (the ones I've played so far)
