I also remember having a thrill when I started lifting and left the stores with something on my pocket. Now it's something from 1k to 3k a month and it feels alright. It made me realize that being more wealthy is not something so great that brings instant joy, just spoil us. I now only drink $100 dólar wine, add a full spoon of Nutella to my coffee (this shit is expensive where I live) and have news clothes everyweek. Got a shampoo worth $50 bucks but I still prefer one that costs $4

I used to take so much care if new shirt or pants or whatever, I used to saw the price value in it and didn't even wash it as often as I should so it would last longer. Now I wear my clothes, they don't wear me.

But Everytime I walk in a store to lift, I have the same mind set as if I am being watched all the time. Only time I relaxed too much on the supermarket, I was busted. LP just gave a warning. Lucky me.

Don't wait to get caught to realized you had too much you didn't actually need.

They have a larger and thicker RFID tag, that is inside a piece of fabric, along with the other info tags on the clothes, like instructions for washing, etc, always make sure you find the sleeve with the RFID tag and rip it off. I bring a small swiss pocket knife with me everytime, so I can slice it quickly and nosily. The tags on the more expensive clothing are hand to pull by hand.

I love their high-tech sports socks, some have ink tags on them, but you can always find some pairs already opened and with not a single tag on them, like bunch of other stuff dont even have any kind of security tag on it

"Decathlon uses the Tageos 100% paper-based EOS-300 Monza R6-P RFID label to tag non-Decathlon products at the distribution centers. The label (54×34 mm/2.13×1.34 in) has been specifically designed for Decathlon in order to match the various types and sizes of product items to be tagged. It comes in a specific format as a double sticker: on the backing sheet, alongside of the standard EOS-300 label, a smaller non-RFID blank sticker is used to print some visual data to help logistics staff during the labeling process."

They are really proud of their paper RFID tags and I'm really happy for easy free good quality stuff.

It's mostly passive RFID, they don't have batteries so they don't emit a signal like a GPS, they are not tracked real time. They only do something when they pass through the cashier or the tower when the tag responds to a signal.

Oh where I live they won't allow to walk in the fitting room with a shopping bag or cart, just the clothes, no other items. Concealing small items are super easy, and don't mind the big bubble cameras as there are so many blind spots. I just casually put stuff in my pocket while walking around and noone is paying attention to me.

I don't think they track RFID real time like in a map or something, that would actually impress me if they did haha. I wonder what would show on their screen when I destroy a tag completely haha. But I usually just stick the tag to another item while pretenting to be checking it.

LPs walk around just looking for suspecious body language and people. Act confidant and try to wear sports clothes or brands, I always go wearing an expensive Adidas shirt I lifted from another place.. so I kind of look like their target profile customer.

I only worry when I get shoes, because I leave video evidence. If they suspect of me, they can see I walk out wearing different shoes, but for that to happen the store would have to be empty or I make some stupid mistake, and it happens, so never do any move our of impulse.

This store is actually pretty good for practice lifting. It's my favorite, I have so many water and camping gear I can survive in the wilderness alone for months haha.

Oh man. I thought I was the only one to know about this lifting paradise place which is Decathl0n. Just rip those fragile RFID off. Where I live theres only like 5 cameras for the entire mega store, and some LPs walking around, easy to spot.

I have lifted thousands of dollars from them sometimes on a single hit. I prefer to go when the store is crowded. All the cool item are so easy to lift, so.many blind spots... HEAVEN.

They trust so much RFID that they don't worry about the cameras much. I love these RFID they are easy to peel, scratch, cut, whatever, no need for magnets. Decathl0n is so bad at security that they published in their website an entire article describing how their great futuristic RFID system is coordinated. Unbelievable.

RFID is to me the best a lifter can find. No need for magnets. Little noise. Easy to get rid off. No evidence.

I like to get some clothes to try in the fitting room, and hide a slim shirt inside a pair of pants or something, then the employee counts only what he can immediately see, and if the store is crowded this is like stealing candy from a baby. So I get the number plate they give but I have two extra clothes hidden inside others, and then I get to choose whatever I want to lift and conceal in the fitting room. This is actually my technique for lifting clothes anywhere where they count the items (I have written about this here before), but the thing about Decathl0n is that you can easily lift an expensive swim suit, diving suits, etc.... They never remember the items you walked in with (if the store is busy) so I walk in with a nice $500 diving suit but handle back only a slim shirt that was hidden inside some other clothing. Same number of items. Off course never ever forget to rip off the RFID tags!!

All the other items are ridiculous easy, knives, nice socks, flashlights, batteries, anything, look for the RFID and take it for a walk while you peel off that thing and get rid of. Pair of shoes only have one RFID sticker in one of the shoes, I walk in wearing flip flops, walk out wearing $300 hiking boots. Unbelievable.

I always go wearing shorts with another tight sports short under it, so I can conceal whatever I want in this tight shorts that keep anything stuck there (even a bottle of wine). But if you are getting something big , then it's better to hit them when the weather is cold and you can wear heavy clothes without being suspicious. I like to bring a string or small rope to tangle around the suit I want to lift around my leg, so when I cover it with my pants, it's unotticible from outside.

Enjoy that place buddie. Always buy some bottles of water or energy bars or whatever so you walk out with their bag and looking like a regular costumer.

My tips for this place are: Don't stare at LPs, ever, but try to glance them as you walk in, try to check how much they noticed you. If I notice they looked straight to my feet, I don't get shoes then. Or spend some good time at the store until they cannot remember you anymore.

Don't trust customers, at this place you have more chances of getting caught by a regular costumer than by the cameras or LPs. Don't look straight to the cameras and make sure you know where they are before you go concealing.

For clothes, use my fitting room technique, unless you want to get socks or a speedo or something small like that, in those cases, find the RFID rip it off, hide somewhere and youre good to conceal.

This is a good store to lift for reselling as they have a large variety of sports equipment.

I am waiting for the winter (I'm not in the us) to go there wearing a big jacket cause I want to conceal a nice hiking backpack. Definitely want some more shoes as they are too easy to get.

The secret is to not forget any RFID, if the tower allarm doesn't beep, they can't do anything.

Concealing when passing by a blind spot is the best method for the smaller stuff and to look like a regular costumer. There is no evidence against you at all. If you walk out and they notice the missing item, they will check the cameras and have proof against you.

Always good to remind you can be prosecuted and go to jail even after walking out successfully.

Don't lose your sleep.

Take advantage of that rush and create a perspective for your life. Every crisis is an opportunity. Be safer next times.

Be aware they will check the footages later and try to remember every clue you left them. Avoid that area for a good while.

Also don't let yourself be depressed just for being bored, but don't risk getting caught to start making changes and better choices for your life.

It happened to me. Got a $60 bar of facial french soap. It makes miracles for the skin. When opened found a tag inside, but it was not activated. I guess it was a factory tag and the store didn't want to risk activating it and the employee don't see it and forget.

Once I set off the alarm at Walmart for a big cut of meat, tag was inside too. LP didn't care as I guess it's common for cashier to forget to deactivate tags they can't see. But they could check cameras later and see it made it "disappear".

If you can open the packing for inspection, without looking suspecious, do it, speacilly for small expensive items.

Always good to remember you can still be prosecuted and face jail even after leaving the store successfully. If expensive stuff goes missing and ate noticed, they can check the cameras. Your plan and concealment must be flawless.

Always leave room for them to doubt if you dropped the item somewhere else in the store.

if you have been stealing sushi over there for quite some time, maybe that's the reason they tagged it... and if you really pissed them off, they (and the police) can check every camera you passed by until you got home...

Don't go there again for at least a few months...

that is an interesting tactic but has to be used carefully... if the LP changes when you are leaving, they wont know the alarm went off when you walked in... I think the more discreet you can be, the better.... I would only use that method if Im sure I'll walk out with an item that has a tag on it and it will be too much trouble to remove, but I would make sure that LP sees me waking in with the alarm sound and even talk to him like "what happened? am I clear"? Then when leaving just smile at him like "haha again!"

You got lucky, I've made something stupid like that once. Got home and noticed a tag...

I think I didnt set the alarm off because this tag was located at a place that the staff could easily forget to desactivate, so to avoid trouble with costumers, they didnt program it to set the alarm off, but the light at the fitting room did went off when I left.... But they didnt to anything..

I also once set off an alarm after lifting the groceries at an walmart... it was hidden inside a FUCKING MEAT PACKAGE! And the sound of the alarm was different, like it was programmed to sound like a "meat" alarm and LP did not care because that was also probably commom, for the cashier to forget theres tags on the meat... BUT, they could check the cameras later and see that I got this very expensive cut of meat and did not pay... so I never went there again...

Be safe, always double check

hey buddy, I'm also very skinny (but healthy) and I like to stock up on very expensive cereal and protein bars. usually I get around 25 at a time - my favorite method is to go to a nice market inside of a mall, so I can walk in with a small bag from a clothing store ; I place a lifted t-shirt that still has the tag, in the bag in a way its visible from outside, if theres lp when I walk in, never make eye contact but make sure he can see the shirt, or other piece, they usually peek on what you are carrying, so it will just look like you just got new clothes. get a basket - a bunch of cereal bars, put same random and cheap items you can buy in the basket, at every opportunity when you are at a blind spot, slide like 5 or 7 of the bars inside the bag - i usually leave some bars in the basket before I check out, pretending I gave up on those items, so if someone noticed me in the cameras with cereal bars in the basket, they'll see there is some still there.

and no, if you cant find tags outside in the packing, theres zero changes there would be one inside - the only way they would tag them is if they notice too many getting stolen - then they could stick it to some of them

when in doubts, just go for a trip to the store and pretend to be taking photos of some items, but aim above for cameras, isles, etc... then at home zoom in and check where the cameras are located, you will have plenty of time to check them and not look suspicious in the store....

never conceal an item you have just picked up, put it in your basket, when changing isle or passing behind a blind spot, place it in your hand, without looking at the items, you must act a little, then at another blind spot, put it in your pocket slowly. You can pretend you dropped something or is going to pick up your phone to conceal the item in your pocket.

Make sure you wear a long shirt that covers your pocket as well...
