nobody likes flippers that buy up most of the stock no matter how you cut it or justify it

I both snatch up clearance for eBay and support a boy from Nicaragua through Compassion International. I both flip games from yard sales to GameStop and work with my church to complete tasks to help the community. These kinds of things aren’t mutually exclusive.
I also rarely buy ALL copies of things at Walmart clearance, but really we are all rationalizing if we buy even ONE copy for personal gain. How do we know if there are, for example, five copies of a game at bottom dollar that there aren’t five kids that would have bought one each with their saved up allowance?

Nice to see other people do the same. Everyone knows I resell and I'm proud that I'm able to afford the lifestyle I have and support my family with it. I also donate products, give away my finds to friends, family and sometimes strangers depending on the situation, and even discount items to people if I see they are truly struggling.

I'm no saint, but I (and the reselling friends I have) are not in it to screw someone over. We, just like many others, just make money to be secure. We don't look at others and think too bad sucks to be you. But we also don't think you should be handed things just because you're you. People are quick to see someone they don't like in a bad light and forget that we worked for those products we buy, sell, ship, customer service handling, inventory management, waking u early to hit up 10+ stores a day, getting contacts, etc. etc. in order to keep selling. It isn't as easy as others assume it is.

Either way, nice to see other also resellers doing something selfless from time to time just because.


Also, people always make up some sob story for why they hate resellers but forget that most of the items bought are items that were in stores for months to years. I might buy a bunch of one item but seeing as it's been in the store for so long, I don't feel bad as someone could have bought it in those months that it was there.

sometimes resellers get to deals before you. nothing new

 

 

if you want to look at it from another perspective, expecting them to forego deals, just in case someone really wants a game for 15 dollars instead of 25, is taking money off their familys table. the counter argument is that they shouldnt be reselling ever, they should work at mcdonalds or get 25 grand in debt and go to college. or basically do anything that you personally approve of. ignoring that argument, the fact of the matter is that games are luxuries. im sorry someone in poverty couldnt get Baja for 5 dollars. on the bright side, they can spend that 5 dollars on food that they dont have to look for in the dumpster, and play one of a million games that are free, and are on platforms that dont cost 150$ at their lowest price. its annoying when i dont get my deal, its annoying when nintendo doesnt have the foresight to make more of their dolls, but saying a reseller shouldnt resell because someone with no money wants a discount on a game (or more realistically, a cheap ass gamer does) and/or because reselling is a bad job, seems like a waste of time. and obviously try not to wish harm on anyone for it.

 

i see this exact same argument every time i go in this thread. im surprised more of you arent resellers TBH. you use the site quite a lot for a bunch of people that are waiting for 40/30$ games to become 20$.

I feel like we have 2 different types of flippers.   we have the "oh damn, just found a GREAT deal,  i should take advantage of it flipper. the flipper that will profit off someone but the person buying will be saving.  

 

Than we have the flippers that nobody likes. the " oh its a HOT item flipper.  will go to all stores and try to buy them all at retail price just to sell for 4 times the amount.   Shoe flippers, NES/SNES, POP flippers etc   items that are meant to be sold at retail or lower(if on sale) .

 

Him buying all these games isn't hurting anyone.  ALL these games are available for people to buy at other stores and lower than retail price.  you missed out on the deal, too bad.  this is CAG where we will evetually have the chance to buy these same games for the same price.   this is CAG, deals like this will pop up again.

Good point. I’d agree with the flippers are scum argument if we were talking about diapers or formula, but someone making profit at arbitrage buying and selling luxuries like video games? Nope.

I find it hard to believe someone could actually make a FT living off flipping, though I guess it can be done. One person couldn't do it alone...you'd need a high # of employees to make it possible to make a decent profit. Most of the games I buy at clearance, I keep for myself but I have occasionally flipped when I have an extra item or two that no one around me seems to want. Let me assure you, flipping can be a gigantic pain in the ass. Unless you luck upon an item that's very rare/in demand and you originally paid peanuts for it, the profit margin is not very big. The cost of mailing it out, commissions taken from website, and the possibility of dealing with scammer buyers makes it not very enticing. 

 

For me, it's far more rewarding to find a game I've been wanting for months for next to nothing on clearance.

100% correct. They are selling the items they pay for at lower prices to us at a huge markup.

I know sone people do, but man that seems like a headache. TBH, I do it more for fun than profit. It’s kind of like a treasure hunt. That excited feeling you get when you find something worth good money for cheap (more of a yard sale thing than a Walmart clearance thing) is what makes it worth the trouble.

I and many others work by ourselves and make more than enough. Helps that I'm cheap (more frugal) with everything in my life. If you really care, look at the many YouTubers and people on Instagram that resell. Very few have employees and if they do, it's usually 1 or 2.

No offsense but you have no idea what profit others make. I can walk into a store and buy 5 items and make $500 profit, other days I'll make only $100 profit. It's easy to view the same scale stuff on CAG and assume it's pennies. I sell games (and it accounts for most of my sales) but also sell home applicpances, high end electronics, discontinued merch, etc. If you do different categories, you can make more money. But you also have to put in and time and dedication to do it. There is a reason I quit my job to resell, because I was making more.

Yeah but I mean consistently, for a living, like was said earlier. Sure you can flip anything over the short term...I mean long term, to where you can support yourself full-time.

Sorry for the double-post, I didn't see this until after.

 

So if you don't mind me asking, what's your typical annual salary for flipping?

About $9k/month but half of that is what I already put in to buy my products. I'd say $4k is profit. During the heavier months (Summer, Christmas, major holidays) it's $12k+. I source maybe 2, 3 times a week and the rest is spent shipping and processing orders.

I work all the time though finding items to buy, planning routes, actually finding items in stores and general other stuff. I love it though and am happy I can help others because of it.

Well, more power to you, I guess. I would think many days would not yield much of a profit and there'd be too much variance to make a consistent living out of it but I've never done it, so who knows. I think any other flippers on this thread probably just do it every once in awhile. As for me, I have dealt with too many EBAY scammers and it's a gigantic headache because EBAY heavily tilts towards the Buyer, just by their predisposition.

The only way to combat eBay scammers is to build it into your margin and sell enough where one scammer doesn't affect you too much. Only had a few scammers that cost me $50 each, but my margin * volume more than covered it.

I don't do RA (Retail Arbitrage) for a living, but a lot of what I'm seeing in this thread boils down to "How dare you make a solid living busting your ass and being your own boss, while I sit here stuck at a 8-5 job that I hate."  A friend of mine who does RA for a living  works 60 hours a week on average, and considerably more during the holidays.  RA is not something I'd be interested in namely because of lack of control - if Walmart and Target change their clearance policies (however unlikely that may be), your revenue stream dies with a single e-mail from corporate to stores.  That said, it's a viable way to make a good living if you have the work ethic.

If your only way of affording the games you want comes from finding them on Clearance, or driving to six different Gamestops in a day selling the games you bought at store B back to store E, I *highly* recommend these books (most of which are on audiobook as well if you commute):

I know friends who have do it full-time and with sneakers/clothes and they make a good amount per yearly nearly to six figures  but granted you have to treat like a job and on top of releases, they work with local boutiques and partners all over countries, I mean it is a job granted different from your 9to5 or corporate world. I think of it like of a mom and pop shop being your boss.

Yes, some days I don't make as much as others. It isn't a stable job but that's why I research, prep, get contacts, etc. to make sure when I go out I'm not wasting my time and get exactly what I'm looking for.

 

Most people here just flip to Gamestop (though they don't consider it flipping for whatever reason) which requires little to do. What I and others making a living do is a lot more. It works for me though and though some days I'm not making much, I always make more than I did working my other jobs. 

 

I do deal with scammers sometimes but it's the cost of running a business. Having 3% scams among the 97% positive experiences is well worth it to not work some shitty job and be at home whenever I want to.

 

Are you selling at msrp or at higher than retail, cuz you aren't fucking helping anyone if you're selling higher

lol, someone's angry.

 

I sell less than MSRP which is what most resellers sell their items for. Why would you (or anyone) go shopping on Amazon or eBay if the prices where more than MSRP on everyday (not limited) items? I wouldn't be able to sell most of my products if I sold them for over MSRP. I sell my products for what the going value is. If a game is $60 MSRP, the current value could be $22.17 and that's what I sell it for. Could someone who lived in my town get the item I got for $5 like I did (assuming they did the same work I did to get it, which most aren't willing to do), maybe, but the guy buying it across the country couldn't and is more than happy to pay half off MSRP for my and other goods.

 

And when I said helping, I'm referring to helping others find items cheaply (not sure if you know this but I started this thread and have shared the most deals and advice in this thread), helping my friends and family get cheap items and help others by donating my finds when I want to / can.

I'm also concerned with scammers leaving bad feedback and screwing up my perfect rating. EBAY doesn't always remove them, apparently.

I dislike not getting in on a deal as much as anyone. But what makes anyone think they are more deserving of a game they only want to buy because it’s $5 as opposed to the person that buys it for more from a reseller? What bugs me more than resellers are the frickin’ hoarders.

It’s just games. I’m sure every single one of us has far more of them already than we have time to play. On the other side of it, there is a layer of social politeness that is broken by brag pics. You have every right posting the mountain of games you bought multiple copies of. Doesn’t mean you aren’t a bit of a jerk by doing it though when your fellow forum members can’t find a single copy.

I'll have an E please, Bob.

I always get a good laugh out of people that get cranky about resellers.  It's luck of the draw folks.  It's like getting angry you didn't find that copy of Stadium Events at Goodwill for $7.  I've found some great deals over the years but I had to put in the time and effort to do so and even then I still miss out sometimes.  You just have to make peace with it and move on to the next thing.

Like I've said in the past, I'm not against ALL flipping, and some of the flippers here seem like decent people.  I've just been "there" where I wouldn't be able to afford a game if it hadn't been on clearance and I know others who have as well...same for kids/parents/etc like I said in my previous post.  Now if I was in a store and I saw somebody literally clearing out a clearance bin of insane deals or something I'm pretty sure I'd step in and say something.  Just not cool and there's no justification to me personally that would make it cool.  It's not about entitlement, to me it's just about leaving things for other people who are less fortunate with the hopes it would make somebody's day.  Wish more of us would live that way...  Then again if you flip right and don't price gouge you're still helping people that way too get products they normally wouldn't be able to.

 

Anyway, good to see a new post with some deals!  Was just going to say, bad thing about the conversations happening here (which luckily, have been mostly civilized) is that it keeps getting bumped and I get excited hoping for a new round of good deals!  I miss the post holidays rush...
