easy to lift / easy to flip - suggestions?

Submitted by ifthreewerenine in Shoplifting

I'm in a tough financial spot right now. I'm looking for things that I can sell to be able to afford the $500 worth of textbooks I have to buy this month.

I'm good on cosmetics, but what else can I lift, and from where?

I typically conceal items, as I'm not ballsy enough for walkouts so ideally items will be small and easily liftable.

AirPods are too easy if you know what you're doing and don't get caught.

Makeup is also easy.

Power tools are probably medium-hard difficulty but they can flip easily and net you several hundreds.

I saw at my local Walmart that the TI-84 calculators are put out on display for back to school. They’re usually behind peg locks. The only problem is that it’s source tagged and you’re looking to sell, but I’m sure you could still make a pretty penny selling it without the box and describing it as “never used.” By no means easy to lift but there won’t be another time of the year where it’ll be easier.

So in addition to the lock alarm, there is another in the box?

It’s usually behind the locks that you have to get an associate to open, not an alarm. And yeah people on the old sub said it’s source tagged. But right now at least for my location, they put it at the front of the store with all the other back to school stuff instead of in the stationery section. So you can take it right off the display instead of having to ask the employee.

I’m in the same boat. Headphones are good. I made a good amount of cash last year selling AirPods.

Video games have a good market as well. Think of things people want, but aren’t willing to pay full price for. That way when you try to sell the item at a marked down price, people will be all over it.

Why don’t you lift the textbooks themselves? Does your university have a bookstore?

Like the Target guy commented. Why don’t you lift the book from your university book store????

Make yourself a booster backpack

The Uni I'm going to has an impenetrable bookstore.

Also, I need 14 textbooks. I definitely can't lift them all from the same bookstore even if the books were out on shelves. I'd have to go back a ton of times to get what I need, and I can't be bothered to go to those lengths.

before you do anything, look online for any torrented, or pdf version of the textbooks. Thats what i did, i dint want to spend hundreds on books. however, this was in 2014ish, before they started taking down torrents, and pirated pdf sites for textbook. i implore you to search for them first online. apple products are quite expensive for thier average quality, i would target these items.
