Strike's Workplace Method Need a raise? Take one! Introduction: I know many of us have part-time and full-time jobs aside from pimping out the internet for some quick cash. Well, Strike does too and he's found a way to walk out with a couple stacks each week from your greedy employer. This method can be altered to suit many circumstances. This is just one application of this method. Step 1. First thing to do is find out if your company/employer uses a gift card system. I'm going to use a video store for an example. Many companies use gift cards and reward their customers by adding additional bonus cash to their purchase for buying the gift card and ensuring the money gets spent with them. This video store will give you a $75 gift card for $50 cash. This benefits the customer who pays more than $50 in movies/games per month anyway by giving him an additional $25 to spend there. To explain: $50 cash gets you a $75 gift card good for in-store purchases. Now that we've got an exploit in our hands that creates money out of 'nothing' we can do exactly that. Step 2. While you're running the register at the video store, customers will be coming up with rentals. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the protocol here, it goes like this: Customer brings up his rentals; You type up the customers account on the computer register; Scan the rentals with your barcode scanner as usual; The computer register displays the price/details and you ask for the total in cash. Pretty normal so far right? Step 3. Now say the total for customer is $20. The customer hands you the cash and instead of ringing it up on the register, you calculate the change in your head (or have a little calculator handy, not uncommon in sales places) and make change out of the till (cash drawer). As the customer is leaving with his rentals, you quickly write down on a piece of paper the Barcode Numbers for each rental, the customers Account Number, and the total cost of the transaction. All of this will still be on your computer register screen because you just scanned them. Now that you have your information written down, cancel the transaction on the screen like nothing happened and start to ring up the next customer. The till/cash-drawer is now $20 over because the transaction has not yet been entered. Step 4. A few more customers rent some items and now you have $50 in the cash till, and all the rentals/accounts/prices written down next to you on paper. Take the $50 that's in the drawer and go buy (as a customer would have you do for them) a gift card. The $50 buys you $75 on a gift card. Now here's the fun part. Step 5. With your new $75 gift card, go back to your register and ring up each rental transaction you've written down with your gift card. The transactions add up to $50, so when you're done adding the last transaction the till will be balanced perfectly, all the customers have the correct movies rented to their accounts as usual, and you have $25 left on your gift card. Step 6. So now the cash till is even and all the customers have their rentals attributed to their accounts. You have essentially swapped your gift card money for their cash. So how do we get our fresh $25 from the gift card to our pockets? All you have to do is wait for another $25 in customer rentals to come through. You ring up their transactions on your gift card and you keep the cash they give you. Your cash till will be balanced perfectly, all the customers have the right movies rented to their accounts as usual, and you have $25 in your pocket you didn't have before. Do this 4 times per day and you've got a $100 bonus each day you come to work. You can modify this method to suit your company's gift card protocol. It doesn't even have to be a gift card. As long as your employer has some sort of practice that generates revenue out of thing air, you can exploit it. Get Money.
