Easy Walmart Lifting Methods

Submitted by TooHot2Trot in Shoplifting (edited )

Hey guys, been lifting for about 7 months now and I have gotten all types of stuff from airplane luggage, to food, utensils, curtains, Xbox controllers, routers and more. I'm just here to tell you some of the methods I use to lift in case it might help you. Also note that I go to a 24 hr Walmart always around 12-1am.

#1: Self-Checkout is your best friend. I typically will just grab a basket, fill it up and then pay for one item, bag it, and put the other items in the same bag. It also helps to take advantage whenever the self checkout clerk goes to help someone.(There are always problems to distract workers at self checkout). Also remember to never EVER place items on the scale or a worker will be notified. Once everything is bagged you can finish the transaction like a normal customer and just walk out undetected.

#2: Return Method(Requires Money): Broke a pair of earbuds and need new ones? Simple. Just go buy the best earbuds they got and place your old broken ones in the package and return. Need a better router? Easy! Buy a nighthawk and then place your old shit router back in the box and return. I find that this method is extremely safe and pretty much fool proof and will help you replace your broken garbage with fresh new shiny products. Just remember that some items that are expensive (typically spiderwrapped) require a serial number check so remember to swap stickers from item to item.

Other methods I sometimes employ are just the quick slip in the pocket method. Or if you're taking an object that has storage space, always put it to use. Try filing a back pack full of merchandise and then just pay for the bag. It's safe but extremely valuable. And who cares if you just paid 30$ for a bag as a method of transporting stolen goods when you can always return it with receipt for the full refund.

Good luck out there y'all!

Do they require you to provide photo ID when doing a return? Also, do you know of a way to get actual cash back on your return, instead of a giftcard to the same store?

I think they only require Id if you used a debit or credit card I assume to prove you're the one who made the purchase. I would suggest only using cash to avoid getting yourself identified. When I lift I don't carry any id in case I was to get caught

No they do not require photo ID when doing returns. If you provide a receipt you will get cash back, which is required for my methods listed above.

It really isn’t suspicious. The person whose job it is to watch out for theft is usually preoccupied with other customers who need assistance, or they are busy on their phone or talking to a coworker. If you have a shopping cart, you can just place your bagged items in your cart. But I have gotten away with putting my bags on the floor in front of the self checkout. Make sure you press “skip bagging” when / if you scan one of the few items you’re actually paying for. Just act cool and calm when bagging non-scanned items.

You have to ensure you pick a self checkout register that is a distance away from the worker on duty. As I mentioned above take your time and try and wait till a worker is helping a customer before doing so. Also if you put a bag into the basket and/or carraige it makes it much easier to just swiftly move items into the bag. From my experience most workers assume you're bagging items you already paid for and will turn the other cheek.

When using the bag method, do you just browse and stick things in the bag directly or...?

No, I put everything in the cart, get to sellf checkout, pull a bag out and then slip items into said bag

I am thrilled to find this place and your post after r/shoplifting was banned. I've been eye balling one of those ridiculously expensive electronic toothbrushes from Walmart. Some are not spider wrapped. Almost concealed one today, but I backed out. Didn't feel right.

Anyone here have any clue if there are sensors inside the boxes? They're a rip to open box so it's not like employees can put one in after they're delivered.

those are pretty high shrink items, almost every chain that carries these have it behind some glass. I think you should conceal one, and open it in the bathroom, to see if it has a source tag.

Good idea. I also saw the post from earlier with the tag inside the box. Glad I second guessed myself today.

I like to go into walmart early in the morning after I get off the bus headed home from work while everybody is over in the groceries preoccupied with stocking food etc my apartment shares a fence with a walmart so it's really easy for me to steal and quickly get to my apartment before anybody notices I lifted which my location is a smaller location,theres no auto or garden sections and only one entrance but anyway I have a backpack I carry with me that contains stuff like portable phone charger,umbrella,wallet etc which is usually pretty empty and I lock one of the pockets with a lock. I try to go in already having decided what I plan to lift and walk around the store acting like im looking at a few things then I head for said items which my last lift which was a little over a month ago was about $50 worth of earbuds which I took over to the aisle in mens clothes where the stock all the really cheap faded glory jeans and put the items in my backpack and put the lock through the zippers. If you try the lock method and get stopped they can't make or force you to unlock your backpack because you can say that it's a violation of your privacy. I sometimes buy a cheap $.97 deodorant stick to throw enployees off you're less likely to get stopped if employees saw you pay and you can show a receipt

I hope no one actually listens to this. These are methods that I used when I was fucking 12. The only one I can cosign is #2. Half the time its old hags working and are to stupid to get the box open or just Dont give a fuck. But as far as your other "great tips" they're terrible and will get people caught
