I used to hit all the T@rg3ts in my area pretty heavy with my Alpha s3 key. I got at least 20 games from 3+ stores over a year. It’s easy to snag their display games in the hard case, I never set off any alarms entering/exiting the store.

I’m an exception though, they were probably case building before I decided T@r is vicious in prosecuting guys like us.

I have a big 12000 gs magnet detacher I bought off e-bae for around 25.00 from China.

You have to hit it hard on the turtle and just the right spot. Even then, it only seems to work about half the time, but I’ve made about 3k from it so far!

The only downside is, if I strike it wrong, it sets the turtle off and I’m left standing in an empty aisle in L0wz with a screaming alarm and holding a fist sized magnet. Just type in 12000 gs magnet detacher on the ebae site and see for yourself.

Let me know!

No. Being summer, the sod is a popular item so there is usually an associate(s) nearby. Same with the outdoor corral with the bigger trees, bushes and plants. There is usually an associate watching over that corral but not always! The trees especially are bulky and heavy, as is the sod, so I don’t think they except those to be high risk items.

I’ve taken both before, BUT, i “found” an employee vest left on a forklift and i was able to wear it and grab about 20 rolls of sod before a confused “coworker” asked if I was stationed outside? Basically, once you get the stuff in the truck, it’s yours.

For the love of all things holy, remove your license plates while doing the job. Also, do it during weekend days, not nights.

I don’t know if I’ve ever stopped completely, but I’ve slowed down to a crawl. I’m talking, going from doing $2000 dollar walkouts at loes hardwear and hoem depo, to grabbing a deli sandwich and soda worth 6 dollars at the local grocery store.

I know how you feel and I’ve been there. Try expanding your “hunting grounds” to stores you would never consider, and just going easy until you are satisfied just grabbing a box of candy for movie night.

I ‘found’ a red vest from a certain home improvement store and have successfully pulled off a couple big pulls, a couple hundred dollars in a cart wheeled out in broad daylight.

I had the vest under my jacket, filled the cart with what i wanted, then at the last minute, put it on and went out the door. On another note, i DID get stopped at one store, I’m guessing it was a manager, supervisor or LP? And he just grabbed the cart as i was on the way out the door. He asked for the vest and i told him to f*ck off and briskly walked away! I had taken precautions like parking far off and wearing a disguise, but that store is a no go zone now.

To make a long story short, if you are brave enough to wear an employee apron, the common wage slaves won’t question you, managers, supervisors, and lp will confront you.

You have a cocky attitude and almost sound entitled, as a lifter. It’s always a numbers/odds game, and since you “never pay for anything” eventually you are going to get caught.

I lift about 1G in merch (approx) a month and every time I do, I stay humble, stay alert, and I know any dollar i net in profit is a bonus and I’m grateful.

I still buy groceries even though I’ve done 300 dollar cart walkouts. I still buy, even if I know i can take, but I remind myself EVERY lift can be the one where a rogue wannabe cop lp decides to piledrive me into the pavement and the humiliation of getting caught, court, etc. kick in.

Stay humble, pimp. Getting arrogant and complacent means getting sloppy and your 1000th time could be the one where the cops are called the second you walk into the store.

She probably was just dialing her manager who was in his office, stock area. Unless you robbed the place with a gun, the police would give her a “cool story bro” and left it at that.

They might put some pictures of you up in the backroom, maybe send one to the cops but for less than 50 dollars worth of merch, noone is going to be kicking down your door.

I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing, except with a used receipt. Other than that, have a parked car near a fire door, one preferably without the 15 second delay, and no plates... Let me know if you make this happen.

I noticed that too. I have been selling hard drives for a while and making decent money but the last few months I had a few sitting for sale for a month or more.

Thank god I finally sold the last one, i need to find new items that actually sell!

I’m no bad @ss mma fighter or anything, but when I’m “working” a store I’m mentally prepared for that ‘hand on the shoulder’. I also am prepared to start running and god forbid, actually resist if they try to restrain me. That includes smashing myself on the floor and putting on an oscar worthy performance that they are using excessive force.

I guess the moral of the story is, I’ll never go willingly to the office. Fight or flight.

How do you get out of the store with this stuff? Every store I’ve been to has a yellow shirt associate manning the door. Games concealed under my clothes is the most I can carry without looking suspicious.

I can understand Wally and Targ, but BB seems like it’s another level?

*What was your procedure if you or an associate find empty alpha cases hidden with the item obviously gone?

*Did you ever catch anyone using magnets? If so, what did you do?

*Did you ever go hands on to stop anyone? Is it common?

I hate the fact we, as a society are being conditioned to wear masks, social distance, and be afraid.

On the other hand, I’m loving that i can hide my face with a giant mask and “shop” at any store as long as i hide distinctive markings, license, etc. I’ve been reaping record profits during this covid fiasco. Anonymity rules!

Hey dude, about 5 years ago I bought a 55’ sony from breast buy, took it home, carefully opened the bottom, swapped it out with a broken 48’ vizio, then sealed it up and returned it “unopened” for a full refund.

The customer service rep just pushed it to the side, I’m guessing to put it back on the floor and never even questioned whether it had been opened. I plan on doing it again after the Christmas holidays when returns are high and F@cks are low, this time for a 60’ sony!

It’s actually pretty easy, a big tv, yes. A ps4, no.

Home improvement stores have an ungodly amount of resellable items. Tools, paint, electrical..hell, even generators and lawn mowers! You can resell anything and everything, you just have to know who’s buying 😉

Read the reddit threads about how these places treat their employees. I have zero remorse “shopping” there.

With the audio tags, it’s usually just a quick beep when you activate/deactivate them. I’ve found 99% of customers around you don’t even glance in your direction when it sounds.

If you’re worried though, you can use your hand to muffle the sound enough so that you can barely hear it.
