Office Depot Retail Arbitrage Amazon FBA – Making $450 in Profit at 2 Stores Reselling Online!


you guys are about to see how we just
made $447 going to two stores maybe taking an hour and a half out of our day and we are flipping profits full-time
Amazon reselling family and we’re also full-time parents we have two young
children in tow that we haul from store to store chasing after the best steals
and deals that we can find and resell online mind you this isn’t the only part
of our Amazon business we actually also operate a wholesale portion of our
business but we feel that this is the most relatable and something that you
guys can actually apply to your business today to help grow it if you’re not
already doing retail arbitrage and Justin and I are putting out three
videos a week to help you guys in your own journey so make sure to subscribe to
our Channel and also we do have an Instagram yeah it’s a follow us there
that’s there we try to get back to everybody’s questions because I know in
the beginning this can be very confusing and difficult so we do try to answer all
the questions if you guys want to you guys any help at all or anything like
that don’t be afraid to ask no no dumb no no no question is a dumb question so
let our family help yours so today we’re actually going to office Depot is right
down the street from our house we our daughter’s sleeping right now so we’re
gonna Justin’s gonna run in and do a little quick film for you guys this
product we actually found on brick seek we usually don’t use brick see but
because this item was so close to our house we couldn’t pass it up
it’s a pair of headphones selling for yes two dollars in store and I think
it’s reselling online for about like 13 to 14 dollars I was looking at kind of
what the price range has been in the past and the lowest it’s been in the
last three months was about eight dollars so even at eight dollars even if
the price shifts down because a bunch of sellers are getting on it we’re still
profiting a dollar fifty each pair of headphones which is more than enough of
an ROI in our opinion so yeah stay tuned alright
and I’m on my way to office max, so here we go. other items they’re similar on the same clearance rack don’t
be afraid to scan I mean I almost walked away from that that was a
$9.00 set of headphones in the store they were selling online for anywhere
from 25 to 30 dollars literally almost just just walked away from that and
that’s gonna make this this haul even that much better Get Kruzey! 5 SKUs in 5 Minutes, Lets Break this Down! Wow that was pretty coordinated there, yeah pretty good all right so we’re
gonna go we went to Office Depot today clearly you guys know that all righty
yeah we stopped at two stores and we made a total of five hundred dollars
$450 basically in projected profit $450 for that for the person that commented
and said oh that’s not profit let’s just say this is projected profit yeah
projected profit so yeah so when before we even get started first off I want to
tell you guys that you need to run your own numbers at home the date of your
guys’s own purchase just making sure that it’s still profitable and making
sure it’s still worth your while all that stuff yeah, your sales tax may
be different than ours right and we don’t really know when you guys are
gonna see this video you could be watching this video at a later time so
we just want to put a forewarning out there that you
need to do your own research so let’s do this yeah so the first product that we
have here is the red and black they call it a jib it’s just your basic set of
headphones originally they are retailing for anywhere between like $9.99 and $15
currently they’re selling on Amazon for $12.99 and we bought them for two
dollars and sixteen cents including sales tax and we will profit off alone
one hundred and thirteen dollars and twenty cents and we ended up buying
twenty total twenty eight oh yeah so each set we profit $5.66 cents with like a net ROI of just under 260% percent all
right the next set this one we only got one of and it is the same exact style as
the first one but it’s just in black luckily this one actually has no
competitive sellers on it no new listings it’s all used like new or it’s
all FBM are fulfilled by merchants and for those that are like kind of newer to
this if you are selling it fulfilled by Amazon or prime you’re gonna
automatically win the buy box over the person that’s sending it out themselves
so Kristen please elaborate on the numbers she’s laughing because I’m going
too long okay Justin talks too much you guys know ever know Justin on a
personal level he’s like such a talker I mean we can’t even go to the grocery
store without spending two hours there so he just will talk anybody’s ear off
and I’m like the total opposite so anyway alright so the black one the
black one whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa the black one and I can’t even read your
notes man it’s like scribbles we profited $12.92 and the list price on
Amazon is $19.99 and we paid the same okay two dollars and sixteen cents
dollars and cents all right next
all right the blue in black okay I’ll show and you talk since you like to talk
okay perfect okay there you go all right so the blue and black is a wireless
headset made by Skullcandy it is currently listed on Amazon for about
twenty seven dollars we ended up walking away from the store after taxes at nine
dollars and 64 cents which after fees after shipping after everything we’re
gonna profit each just under twelve dollars for a total profit on those five
of $59.40 and an ROI of 120% next boom on to the
black on black this is the big seller this is a we ended up getting a total of
eight across both stores same exact price $9.64 including sales tax and we’re gonna end up listing these for 30
dollars and 44 cents each meaning we profit on each one of them just over $15
dollars with a total $120 in profit on those eight next she really is
pushing that 5 SKUs in five minutes Jesus this is the red and black same
exact concept wireless headphones made by Skullcandy they are Bluetooth enabled
they are sexy they are fun they are great Wow you should really be a spokesperson for them he’s doing really well thank you okay so
12 units total that we picked up at the two stores we’re gonna end up busting
them at $26 with a profit each of 11 dollars and 79 cents an ROI of a hundred
just over 120 percent and a total profit on those for a hundred and forty-one
dollars and forty eight cents and for the grand total four hundred and forty

    Thanks to every one of you for stopping by and watching our video – it truly means so much to both of us. We love each and every one of you.

  2. Another great video you two. I saw these as well, however did not not purchase as I "need approval" to sell this brand.
    So another video idea: how to go from a brand new seller to being "ungated" for products/brands in your niche.

  3. Another great video guys keep up the great work I look forward to everyone that I see I'm always very happy to say that notice pop up with your name on it

  4. Hey flipping products. I love your videos and was just wondering how did you get unrestricted for that product. For myself and probably most people you have to prove to Amazon you are a distributor with invoices so I was just wondering how you did that? Thank you.

  5. Skullcandy is a high risk item for RA even if you are not restricted. There have been many IP claims with this brand.

  6. Love your vids!!
    Question…would you recommend the $9.99 or $29.99 BrickSeek plan??
    Keep the vids coming!!
    P.S. Your chiblings are so precious!!

  7. Hey guys love your videos. Could you post the first two items again? I think the screenshots for the first two items are the same as the ones for the big items at the end of the video. You guys rock and thanks for sharing as always

  8. Thanks for another great video! What app are you showing the numbers on in this video? My Amazon seller app looks different and only shows the rank of items but not how many in the category, which I’m guessing is what the second number is next to your item rank. Also, how low of a rank do you look for to purchase an item, I know it Varys but in general?

  9. Hey Guys,Just wondering…What was your transition like moving from California to Arizona, what was your life like before . I hope im not being nosey. I miss it out in Arizona! I can't wait to maybe meet you guys on a profit adventure

  10. How do you determine if something will likely sell or not? I've read Amazon charges storage fees so how do you avoid having them store products for months on end.

  11. Another good video, glad to see you are going to address IP claims, I’m unclear on that one. Also I would like to share with the group, we were looking at seller central and stumbled across a ton of getting started things from amazon. It all happens so fast we never even thought to look for it there.

  12. amazon seems intent on wanting you to pay them $40/mo for a pro membership….. any advice on how to start out without without the $40/mo I don't seem to be able to get their site to let me.. sheesh what a newbie I am

  13. You guys are good at this. Are you up for a resellers challenge?? I challenge you both to find 1 item at a gas station that you can profit at least $2 on!

  14. You guys are absolutely awesome. As I want to suggest that you should try thrifting as well.Start Ebay….you guys will do very well. Thanks for all the content, I enjoy watching it.

  15. Just got approved today to do FBA on Amazon yayy what would be a good RA item to look for not the particular item but type of item thanks for all your great videos!!

  16. Yes please a step by step guide from what kind of account to set up in amazon, especially for one who has no clue how this works. Thank you.

  17. Man leave Justin alone!!!!! He’s a koo guy. Lol you gays are funny. Great video guys. You guys rock and are inspiring

  18. Kruze looks so much like Kristen it's not even funny. BTW, anyone who lives on Long Island and is seeing this if I see you going into an Office Depot to do some RA I will run you over with my car. No questions.

  19. When you talk about your projected profit for a particular product, how long would you say on average it takes for you to achieve that profit?

  20. Thank you so much for all your videos. I do have two questions I hope you will answer for me. Do you have to pay 30 cents for every item at Amazon if you send to just one location?
    Or do you always send to the 3 locations?

  21. Thanks for the video. Question,, I watched your video about the everything but the bagel seasoning. Wondering about bundling. If you list something as a two pack, do you wrap them together in a bubble paper or polybag? Do you put the barcode on the outside of the bubble paper/polybag? Thanks!

  22. Hey guys, had a ? When I scan products with the amz seller app on some of them under selling eligibility it said that I can’t sell item in new condition, but can sell on amz in used or collectible. Can you please explain?

  23. On average, how many days, weeks or months does it take to return a profit from the time you post the product on Amazon? I know this varies by product and demand, but an average. Additionally, how much cash ( dollar figure) can you float before you see a return?

  24. Hi Justin and Kristen, I noticed you mentioned that you left your corporate jobs in order to pursue a lifestyle that would better suit yourselves and children. When you made this move, did you have a savings put aside in order to pursue your new endeavors?

  25. The "cha-ching" in the video kept me checking my phone. It made me think I was getting sales on Ebay. LOL! Great video!

  26. Hi guys, sorry to bomb you with questions, lol. What’s your thought on all the threads on seller central forums about getting your account suspended or banned by doing RA? There are a lot of posts about amazon asking for actual invoices and people saying store receipts will not work. Is that even an issue, or just people who don’t like others doing RA?

  27. You guys should build a Facebook group it's little more easier to manage and then you can have members and then you can also share your videos with everybody and also you should make a video on using the Amazon seller website how to maneuver through it

  28. Great video guys, been a little under the weather here but have been listening, I gtta admit there are a couple problems that are frustrating me. The dang printer wont print the labels from seller central. I scan stuff that I can't sell on Amazon so I flip it to ebay no problem but some other products I have to split and send my stuff to Oregon or someplace stupid. I live in South Carolina, ??

  29. Ya How are you finding these items? Are you guessing and then you scan the item and see if it is going to be any good?

  30. I have watched a couple of your videos and they are amazing. What app do you use to check the profitable of the items. TIA

  31. I have a question please. If I want to start as a reseller on amazon fba, can I support myself and my family financially without having another job?
    Thanks!

  32. How do you know how to scan and does amazon offer a scanning service. I have a scanner on my phone but how does that relate to amazon

  33. Great video! Would like to know, after purchase, do you mail them the same day or next day? And do the numbers change by day for items?

  34. What happens if something you bought doesn't sell? Does amazon just keep holding it or do you get charged more fees the longer it sits? How does that work?

  35. Do you need to pay tax at the retailer? Why wouldn't you buy with a wholesale license for resell where you wouldn't have to pay tax? I'm very new to this but why pay tax on something that you're going to resell? Great videos, BTW!

  36. What kind of timeline on sellling? What happens to items that don't sell? How long does amazon keep an item before they remove the listing?

  37. I actually think all of Justin's details and elaborations are super helpful and valuable for new resellers like me! It was good to know that if we are selling FBA we would win the buy box over people sending it out themselves. I have encountered a few products like this so THANK YOU SO MUCH!

  38. hello im very desperate. i started 4 months a go with amazon retail and arbitrage and all my items are under 90.000 sales rank. but my sales is only 6 products a month. i need your help to increase my sales. also i have a question i need to introduces keywords or pictures on arbitrage products? please i appreciate your answer . [email protected]

  39. What app did you guys use to scan items with? When you guys are showing your figures I was wondering what app is that your using

  40. If I find a listing for and iPhone 7 on amazon for $500 and I have the same one that’s unopened and I replenish the iPhone 7 stock on amazon, how do I get paid from the seller?

  41. So how many do you buy of one alike item? Can the different headphones be sent all together or are you separating them by exact product and color?. You got only one of the black headphones so how do you sell that one item on Amazon?
