You'll be able to the first time, if your account is a few years old. Claim it as "package never received" and they'll send a refund. You can only do this once or twice, and after that they'll flag your account and/or require a signature on any item you order.

Yeah, but wouldn't LP possibly catch on pretty soon after the return was completed? I'd assume they'd check the cameras and you'd have to be wary lifting in that region from that point forward.

I used to hit the Nordstrom Rack close to me. It was a hot mess and the designer shoe section had a blind spot in one of the aisles. For a few years I made an extra 3-500 a month lifting designer shoes (mostly Tory Burch flats) but they eventually realized what a problem it was and moved the shoe section to a section of the store with cameras everywhere and now every single shoe has those undefeatable alarm clips on them. womp womp

Yes. You keep walking. You either pretend to take a distracting phone call, or frown as though the alarm is inconveniencing you. With door checkers, you are not obligated to let them look at your stuff. Flash your receipt and act like you're in a hurry.

That's what I thought. I wish I had access to that particular thread. Nearly everyone unanimously agreed that it was a foolproof method, as though simply running a scanner near RFID tags was enough to deactivate them.

Grocery store, during your weekly shopping. Not every location is set up like this, but near me, the liquor store is (at some locations) just out on shelves and ready to be selected and put into cart with your other groceries. You have to be subtle, not greedy, and look like you're old enough to be purchasing it.

They don't work for all tags. I carry a hook as well, but don't have any tools beyond that. I've never really messed with S3 keys because I'm not dedicated or ballsy enough, or tags that can't be discreetly cut off items if I can't defeat them with my magnet or hook.
