Trying to make a few extra bucks reselling items on Amazon?

Here's one way to find resalable items you may not have thought of.

Instead of focusing on finding discounted or clearance items, we are going to focus on finding items available to you, but not available on amazon. 

Like any other retailer, Amazon runs out of stock on items.  When this happens, there's potential for profit.

Here's how to make a little extra cash:
1. Go to CamelCamelCamel and search for a keyword, I usually will enter a brand name.

2. On the search results screen click the "go here" link.

3. Order by Popularity and set Direction to Descending.  Click Update.

4. Scroll through the results and look for items that show as "Not in Stock" by Amazon but available as '3rd Party New'. The new price will give you an idea of what the item is currently selling for from other sellers.

5. Use a price comparison website to see if you can find the item cheaper locally.  I usually use The Find.

In this example I was able to locate the Lego set at a local Sam's Club for significantly less than it sells for on Amazon.  Be aware that this method can be hit or miss depending on an item's demand.  

Lego Sets are a good place to start with this method.  It will help you get a feel for how this works. Lego sets are regularly retired which results in a situation as shown above.  Once you get a good handle on how this works you can start branching out into other categories.

Last week's post on How to Always Get the Best Price at Walmart is a great way to find deals on hard to find Lego Sets.
