Thanks for the book tips.

I just joined the Proven Amazon Course and have appreciated the video training that Chris has done in that course.

I just found out a couple of books that have been vital to my success as a seller are FREE on Kindle for the next couple of days.  Here are the links:

Arbitrage by Chris Green:  http://amzn.to/1HmftAc
The Scanner Monkey Way by Jay Bayne and Cordelia Blake:  http://amzn.to/1BNIDHW

Chris Green also has another book called Online Arbitrage that sells for around $200 (and worth every penny).  He just released a preview version, which has the first 3 chapters of the full book.  Chapter 3 lays shows all the basics of how to buy online to resell on Amazon.  This preview book sells for about $10.  If you're at all interested in Online Arbitrage, I recommend picking up this preview to help decide if you want to take it to the next level.

One more plug:  Tomorrow, Thursday November 20th, Chris Green is hosting a 15-hour Spreecast to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.  He will be interviewing several people in the online selling arena.  

Watching is free.  If you're moved, please donate to the cause.  The goal is to raise $20,000.

The schedule is here:  http://igg.me/at/wwpspree/x

I have the same problem in a few places also.  It is very frustrating.  It is pretty much why I am trying to do mostly online arbitrate and now I am going to be getting into wholesale and private label, I think that is my best chance at success right now.

I have the problem in a few stores near me as well.  I don't generally go there to scan anymore.  I do occasionally stop in to pick up items I have scanned and bought in other locations, though. 

In one of these stores, I can get a decent cell signal if I go up toward the front of the store.  I have loaded up a cart with 1 of each of several items I want to scan, go up front, scan them, and then go back to the aisle.  It's hard to keep track of prices this way so it certainly isn't a solution.

Guys I have a huge problem when doing retail arbitrage.  I have several discount stores near me that I know are loaded with good items but the problem is that a lot of them are metal and my cell phone reception is terrible inside.  I literally can load about 1 in 10 items I scan and it is so frustrating.  Anyone know of a way I can boost my cell reception.  I have Verizon and usually I can load things really fast.

Aaron I try to stay within 5% for the quickest turns but I do go up to 10% also, just depends on the item.

Comment by Aaron Redcay on November 6, 2014 at 2:31pm

Yea that is huge.  Do you try to stay within the 10% or anything?
