My funniest/craziest moment was when I was doing t.v. walkouts at Wally world. I had a 55" 4k tv, sound bar and a couple go pros in my cart and was exiting the store. There was a man in front of me who had purchased a cart full of groceries. I get halfway across the parking lot and hear someone yelling "sir! I need your receipt! Stop right there!" I keep walking and hear someone running up behind me, I keep my head forward and keep it moving. Lp and the store manager run up to the grocery dude and grab his cart asking where his receipt is. I walk past and the store manager apologizes for yelling and wishes me a good night. I never went back to that store again lol.

Walmart is hit or miss it seems. Some stores are ridiculously easy, and others are like fort Knox. My local walmart started out easy, but now they have multiple lp 24/7. Just be smart about it and trust your gut

Speaking for my local store only, no active lp, BUT employees will and do watch you like a hawk every time you go in. I've spent quite a large amount of money there, a few employees know me by name and I've never lifted from there but I'm always watched. Same goes for all the other shoppers. I'm not sure if all stores are like that, but mine certainly is. Also, the setup makes it super difficult for a walkout. Maybe better luck at a chain hardware store.

Walmart will almost guaranteed escort the item to a register and wait for you to pay once they take it out of a case. Most stores do that with $60 video games that are in a case.

In my early stages I would use the heavy duty foil wrap to wrap dvds, insert into a large box and pay for the box. I went around dvds with about 10 sheets of foil. I made sure to completely seal it and never had them go off. Just make sure it's the expensive heavy duty foil. Not the cheap aluminium paper stuff out there. Good luck

This was exactly my method when I first started. I did it about three or four times. On the last time, I was all set to check out when a relative called me to assist him in his broken down car. I left everything in the store and walked out empty handed, local police was waiting for me. Searched me and had to let me go due to not having any merchandise. I don't recommend this at all. Not worth the risk.

I used the walkout method in WM countless times mainly for electronics like 4k big screen tv's sound bars etc. I always map the store out, and get a layout of the employees a few times prior to the lift. Just be smart, cautious and once you have the item/s you want, stick to your route and leave.

That's exactly the point. They'll tell you there's a limit and they can't return it. You'll then be perfectly free to walk out, if stopped you say you came from customer service to try to return it, if they verify with customer service, they'll verify your story and let you leave. I've even had them send someone to help me re load it in my car.

I posted a tip page about Wal-Mart. Tv's where my main score. I always put it in a cart and walked immediately out. One straight shot out the doors, don't waste time, dont get nervous and start delaying. Or, if you're able to get a tv from electronics to customer service I would do that, try to return it and when they offered store credit I would tell them I'd look again for the receipt and have to come back. That also worked for me, but my main method was a walkout.

I've seen them behind the dust covers, and sometimes in the first few or first last pages.

I've never had to make multiple calls. It seems that as long as they believe you're a cop, they'll give you all the info you want. I've never left a return number, the caller id spoof was just an added precaution. It's worked literally every time for me.
