Go for the 275 one. I doubt they'd require a signature for that & should work if your account has existed for a decent amount of time. Wait till 36 hours after the package is marked as delivered. Get on chat with customer service, just act like a normal customer who doesn't understand why their order didn't arrive, say you've asked all the neighbors about it to no avail. Hopefully they offer your choice of replacement or refund.

If I wanted to steal a large item at my TJ's I'd bring a large shoulder bag or messenger bag...something professional looking. Put it in the cart as you shop and when you get the chance, nonchalantly slip the item you want in there. nonchalantly slip your item in there. close the top or rearrange the other items in the bag to cover it. This can work if no one's looking while you pick the bottle up, and if you go through checkout with other items you can just put the bag back over your shoulder.

Just bring a big bag of stuff (using the black shopping bags they provide) into the dressing room. Detag, put the stuff you want in shopping bags from other stores, or put some on under your clothes if you want. Put the discarded tags on non-tagged items. I then put the newly tagged items in the back of the underwear drawers so it will take a while before they find & get suspicious.

Bring a shoulder bag--like a tote, professional-looking work bag or something larger than a purse that one could slip books into while browsing without looking like they're trying to do anything shady. Try not to be seen in person or on camera doing this, but if someone does see you it's just look like you are stashing your shopping for ease of carrying. Take the bag into the bathroom and check the books you want for rfid tags. If someone is actually enforcing the "no merchandise in the bathroom" rule, this probably isn't the best bookstore to steal from anyway.

If you're worried it will look obvious that you picked out books & then left without buying anything, you could also bring some textbooks/notebooks in with you and spend some time in the bookstore cafe reading or doing work. This gives time for anyone who's watching the shoppers for sus activity to lose interest in you. But use your intuition on what approach is safest.
