Those Funko collectors can be finicky about their boxes--I can't picture myself getting them in a coat and out again without some damage. Brainstorming here: howbout bringing a lame console to trade-in in a largeish box? When they refuse it, browse. I see problems, but I'm just thinking out loud.

Maybe not for Dewalt, but for Ryobi i recommend going to the weedeater aisle with a blade and removing from the box--they're right at the top of the box and no security tag.

Avoid teachers' belongings, including laptops. They buy lots of classroom shit out of their own pockets. Modern digital projectors, Document cams, student laptops (most teachers wouldn't have locked their large charging boxes) would be the most $ in the rooms. The office would have more pricey stuff, but also more specialty, so harder to flip. Don't break a window.

I had a storefront. back in the day. It was spotty which brands of electronics had serial numbers and which didn't. Many were on stickers or plates that came right off, and with some goo gone it magically became a brand that didn't have serial numbers. Stussymascot is right, retailers aren't tracking which serial number is lifted unless it's a really high end item. Nowadays, selling on Ebay is my recommendation--shipping to a far off place is safer than facing locals, imho.

I have to admit I don’t understand the stance at all. But it’s supposed to be fake? Or funny? It only stole some of my time and brain cells.

I wouldn’t do it, because I’ve had to deal with insurance companies and credit card companies on the phone before. I’m sure we all have. It’s frustrating. Sometimes, with a major problem, it takes hours. I’m not going to steal hours from anybody. They’re not the enemy.

Nope. and if they did a carrier investigation, I didn’t hear about it. I think there were no investigations at all.

Did it, one item, used chat to DNA, refunded. I was afraid item would be deactivated, but time passed now and it’s still working fine. I used different, anonymous Aplle account to activate it just in case.

Thank you, Munchkin. The small camera domes that are over the high-shrink items; can they pick up the other areas too, or are they pointed only straight down? Any hidden tags or are the spider-wraps the only tags? Any general tips?

Used to do metal recycling about three years ago. Prices have gone Wayyy down. My last full pickup of unprepared shred iron got me like $5. Aluminum cans went down to like $1.50 a garbage bag full. And then I quit. If you get precious metals like gold, nickel, or silver; ship them off to a reputable Refinery (my favorite is in the Midwest :) and they’ll give 10% under spot no questions asked.

I have read that all the camera domes are fake, both large and small. I use blind spots anyway, but only when the manager’s in the office. Are they really fake?

At my local library, the previously rented, withdrawn books that they resell, have to pass through the towers. Library just makes a big ol’ diagonal knife-slash through the tag. Should be just as easy as magnetic or electronic methods.

Hello, Stovepipe. How often is a normal shopper going to be being watched (out of LP’s boredom, or just staring at the cams, etc.) if they haven’t been “made” as a shoplifter? Also, what type of retailer were you at?

I’ve done Big L0ts. There are camera domes, but some blind aisles that are a free-for-all. Conceal instead of walkout there. I suggest dressing unmemorably is more important than dressing older. My local BLs are easy.
