While this may be nothing new, nor proprietary, it is a method that I have not seen here nor heard of elsewhere. And I am currently making about $500/week. This could be more but my availability doesn't allow me to do so with my 23 credit hours. This is my first method posting, so bare with me. This is the method I use: 1. Open up classifieds in your local area 2. Find items that few people are selling 3. Make a few identical posts to that specific item. Say one "brand new" one "opened but still new" and another "used." (These are obviously fake and you have not intent on selling any of these) I would suggest creating an account with an email you will never use again. 4. Price your posted items like this... the "brand new" selling for about what others are asking for their used ones, and then keep bringing the price down to the "used" one you're posting at what you want to pay for that item. 5. Start emailing/calling/texting those people saying they're asking too much and you are willing to pay what you put on your used ad. 6. Go meet this schmo and buy his item at your discounted price. 7. Go back home and delete all of your deflated pricing ads. 8. Post new ad with your recently acquired item at actual market value. Or if you'd prefer to deal with eBay then there is that route. 9. Sell item to some random person and make profit. Rinse and repeat. (To make the repeat easier if you had made posting on that specific item before you can go to your history and repost them) I don't really know how to make the method sound pretty but I will explain my current hot selling and buying product with method. I am currently buying computer monitors. These are great as people are buying them and there are enough models from each brand to only have 5-10 postings selling that exact item. So, I will search the model number of say a 27" Samsung monitor. I will see what people are asking for it and check the value on eBay sold also (this is key if you can't sell it in classifieds then you can always resort to this and still not lose money). I will then make anywhere from 1-5 postings to make the seller think that the market value isn't what it actually is and offer them usually 100 dollars less than what they're asking because "those other people are selling a brand new one for your asking price and someone else...." I hope you get the point on that. About 1 out of every 4 people will deny me and tell me they'll sell it on eBay then but those other 3 will sell me the item. I then return back to my ads, delete them, and post the item I just bought up for sale at the actual market value. What you are doing is making the lazy people of classifieds think market value of an item is $50+ dollars less than what it actually is, buying it, and selling it. Back when iPhones first came out, I had taken a loan from my parents and did this all day. I was making so much money it was stupid. I then implemented the jailbreak/unlock to the phones and was making even more. Now, I am not making the same with this product since I don't have the time to dedicate to it as I once did but I know the potential. REMEMBER that this works well for broken items too. I sell all the broken items I obtain on eBay as it sells quicker and a lot higher than you would get on classifieds. If you have any questions post here.
