Garden section usually doesn't have scanners, so use this to your advantage, but your best bet on this one would be a booster bag. The calculator has a nice compact shape (even in the box).

No. If you say you plan to pay at the front of the store they're immediately going to send it to the front counter. If you say your parents are elsewhere they're probably going to need them over there because someone under 18 probably doesn't have enough money for 'worth-it' electronics--Otherwise, yes, midnight is great. LP isn't there after 9 PM. (from what I've read.)

Question: Do you know for a fact that they immediately send it to the front of the store?

I'd like to see your thinking sudo. In my own opinion I don't think it's too risky as long as you don't refer your location/identity and if any traceable serial numbers are blurred out.

We have a couple people on this sub who have worked at Walmart so they can give better advice than me, but from what I understand is they can't follow you outside the store and can't detain you unless they actually see you conceal. My advice is, if you're gonna try this again sometime, and they tell you the same stuff just keep walking. Make sure your bag is closed too if possible. Best of luck and happy lifting!

Burberry shirts are expensive, so they are bound to have some kind of tag on them, so it's important you remove them before leaving the store because Bloomingdales has active PTZ cameras and they also are allowed to chase, prosecute and ban. I'd be extra cautious there, if they're not sold elsewhere. Best of luck and happy lifting!

They don't set off alarms. Their only use is to release ink if someone attempts to remove it manually. I don't wanna sound rude, but I don't know what about my previous responses are untrustworthy. If you're that paranoid, yes, you can take a booster bag in.

If you manage to get some clothing with ink tags, freeze them overnight and take it off before it thaws. Best of luck and happy lifting!

You should probably try to stay away from electronics that are locked up unless you want to lockpick the case. Because they might send the item to the front of the store where you'll have to pay for it (or you can just leave but you know)

I heard certain phones can be tracked via IMEI number and blacklisted on all carriers and potentially even GPS tracked

That's all I have for right now, I hope someone gives a better answer

We don't do that here. I wouldn't. I'm just giving you the facts, ink tags do not set off alarms. Almost every other tag does. Ask almost anyone with over 2 months of shoplifting experience and they will tell you the same thing

What do you mean by 'disable'? Ink tags don't explode or set off the alarm. They only leak the ink when you try and remove it yourself.

If you mean disable as in how do I stop it from releasing the ink, you can freeze them, then quickly attempt taking it off before it thaws. That would be your safest bet. Google how to remove an ink tag for more information. Best of luck and happy lifting!

Amazon. They are very scammable. They have a policy where they will either replace or refund nearly any item that is reported missing or stolen. Someone can explain this better than me but they ban your account after quite a few times I believe.

Looks like you, my friend, have hit the jackpot. Even though they're closing I would be on the lookout for cops as you're leaving--even though it may be unlikely.
