No, Im Not Dead. But Boy Have I Been Busy!
Sorry for the profit tumbleweed recently – avid readers will remember that I was on holiday last week and I’ve returned to work and become buried! (my priorities need to remain in place)
However, this hasn’t meant I haven’t been looping – and by the emails and texts flying about over the last few weeks – neither have you guys!
Appreciated that some of these are now dead ducks (as ‘Sale’ prices have now risen etc) but its been a profit mountain! I suppose my busyness has been a blessing – as I haven’t given them the head start on me this week and its all gone swimmingly. But alas, fear not faithful reader – my profit is not the driving force of this website, your profit is (and like I always say – keep the emails coming – its great to see how natural adapt to Looping so many of you are).
Within the last two weeks, I’ve managed to loop:
Green Hornet/ResEvil Afterlife/Priest 3D BluRay BoxSet at Amazon £18.40
CEX Cash £9.00 – However, traded individually (confirmed each disc has barcodes) these go for £9/£10/£10=£27.00
£8.60 Cash Profit [+47%]
Operating the standard 9x cost £165.60 and returned £243.00 – a nifty £77.40 cash profit (if you stuck to 9 that is – wink)
Anno 2070 on PC is currently rocking the £20-£25 price point, but throwing it into the “2 for £25” over at TheHut.com whilst offering the first 300 Orders during an England game (using the code ENG11) a nice 11% discount. Couple this with 2% CashBack too and we’re looking at:
2x Copies £25 – 11% = £22.25 – 2% = £21.80 ÷ 2 [Per Copy] = £10.90
This was fetching a reputable £16 at CEX – giving a £5.10 Cash Profit [+47% - again]
King of the Ring over at Silvervision was the Wednesday Deal of the Day and was offered at the greatly reduced price of £7.99. Ordering 18x copies gives an automatic 10% discount (I’m not sure if its £100+ orders – or whatever the trigger is) bringing in the cost of each copy to £7.19
This is was selling on the shelves of CEX at £22 and because of that, they offered £11 cash!
Returning a £3.81 Cash Profit [+53%]
Fright Night on BluRay (Non 3D) was slammed to £6.95 over at Zavvi – and combining with a 10% voucher code (they really do send too many in my opinion!) this brought them down to £6.26 a copy.
Cashed out at CEX at £9 per copy (selling for £15 on their shelves) returning £2.74 [+44%]
So by using the above example – doing one copy of each (which obviously isn’t possible due to Anno’s involvement in the “2 for £25” deal) worked out as such:
3D BluRay BoxSet £18.40 + Anno 2070 £10.90 + King of the Ring £7.19 + Fright Night £6.26 = £42.75
Returns £27 + £16 + £11 + £9 = £63 [+47%] £20.25 Cash Profit per ONE copy.
Not horrific – whatever free cash you had – you could have lopped (that’s not a ‘loop’ typo) another [near] half on top!
It was an expensive investment too (as multiples of these weren’t cheap) but to paint the picture of the ‘financial commitment’ required (but the subsequent potential gain) here are some examples.
5x Copies Cost £214 / Return £315 = Profit £101
9x Copies Cost £385 / Return £567 = Profit £182
18x Copies Cost £770 / Return £1,134 = Profit £364
27x Copies Cost £1,154 / Return £1,701 = Profit £547
Now, appreciated not many have £1,000 laying around A) willing to risk and B) not already tagged as Rent/Petrol/Living Expense – but this is merely as an example/expression of what physical-cash-in-your-pocket sort of profit can be achieved.
Even operating at the ‘small’ 5x maximum (certain stores + online) you’d still be looking at over £100 returned in profit!
Right, enough with the updating – time for me to find some current stuff to put some money in your pockets
Stay tuned for regular loopholing updates to recommence!
(and again – apologies for the delay!)
PS Apologies about lack of pictures, as I was uber busy and unable to update the site, I didnt feel the need to – but, then I realised I would have to make a “Where Have You Been Post” and had to squirrel through my phones memory to find photos I would have taken out of habit
Just remembered “WWE Rivalries Bret Hart vs Shawn Michaels. Was £6.99 at Silvervision, again – 10% off on massive orders automatically. Making them £6.29 each.
These *WERE* £12 cash at CEX, but when I finally got there (doh) they had dropped to £9.00 +£2.71 +43% Cash Profit.
However, they have since plummeted – as they are £8 to buy on the shelves now!?
Please Remember: LoopHoling is not a guaranteed form of income – so we heavily suggest you don’t get involved with money you cant afford
(or if you don’t have surplus funds available to afford the return shipping fees if everything goes pear shaped!)
Always adhere by the rules outlined by the respective outlets/retailers and never force/insist or argue the case. The rules are the rules – and they are THEIR rules!
LoopHoling is not illegal, its not a scam and its not unethical. You are simply playing the “Digital Stockmarket” – where DVDs and Games are your ‘shares’. Buy low – and sell high!
Of course it carries risks – but then if it was 100% risk free – every man and their wife would be doing it. So for those with a thirst for adrenaline or the ‘cat and mouse’ thrill – the profits are there to be had!
