I'd like to know this too, Bass Pro near me keeps all shoes except the ones on display in storage while Academy has $150+ shoes just laying around. If they are no chase, that'd be awesome for me :)

I’m fairly new to the scene, too. I’ve been lifting for about a month, been getting better and faster at it. You probably know enough to get the small items you want but if you really want to step up your lifts, these are all of the resources i used to be pretty proficient for a newbie.

Don’t know if you’ll use these and you’ve probably seen the raffle.me ones but the others are pretty useful too. Good luck and stay discrete :)

Review these and you're golden. Definitely an important tip is to 1: take it slow! no need to rush into something large. After all, you aren't losing anything by working your way up to your goal. What you will get though is confidence, experience, and a better idea of strategies. 2: TRUST YOUR GUT. You've seen that one, I'm sure, but it's vital. If you don't feel safe or confident then get out and cool off. Last thing you need is to be unsure of being caught and it turning up badly. Hope this helps, I know it helped me and it may do the same for you

If you have the tools you need to get the tags off, it's easy. For me, it's 50/50 if there is someone counting. Just wait or if you cant wait, get a jacket and put a shirt, pants, etc in the jacket then zip it up. From what I've experienced they've only ever counted hangers, given me a little sign with the number on it, and that was it. Also many of the forever 21s are 2 stories, walk to the other dressing rooms and see if they are unattended. More than likely there is at least one that has nobody counting

The major tech stores around me seem to be (in order from easiest to hardest) 1.Fry’s 2. Microcenter 3. Best Buy. Microcenter is fairly difficult, the one around me has low shelves and is very easy to be caught in, I don’t know if they have active monitoring on the cameras but they probably do and they do have lp. Fry’s is easiest since it is so massive, high ceilings with high cameras, and yes lp, but they are so spread out they are easy to dodge. And we’ll, bestbuy is Best Buy. Difficult as hell

If it’s an iPhone, always. If it is an android demo phone, usually they won’t go through the effort of setting it up. If it’s new in box, no. You can’t track it. If they really care enough they could remotely deactivate the imei so you can’t use it on cellular networks. Just I wouldn’t try selling it anytime soon since the s/n would appear stolen

Pliers 100% work the best for gator tags, but I wouldn’t recommend them, since they are somewhat hard to conceal and if you get caught it could easily be considered a felony since you came with the intent to steal. I would recommend a rubber band, wider and thicker ones work best, and make sure it’s quality and won’t just snap. With a rubber band you can hide it so easily and since it’s just a rubber band they won’t be able to count it as a tool. Just wrap it inbetween the gator tag and the pin, then twist the gator tag off. Takes a little longer and more effort but much safer imo.

Hollister uses basic supermatic tags, you need a key to open it. They are usually $1 from China and $5 in the US. Id say just spend the extra and get it way faster, just think of the money you’re saving $4 is practically nothing

Is it true some brands sew rf tags into clothing? If so, do you know if they do this at aerostopale, pacsun, urban outfitters, etc (I’m fairly young, these types of stores are more my style)? Also any tips on spotting these tags? Edit: just saying Incase people judge because it’s prob an obvious answer to most of you, I am very new at this, a pretty big armature and still really cautious
