What is a Thrifty Lemon Alert (TLA)? A TLA is a product that we have “flipped” on Amazon for a poor or NO profit.
Batman The Brave & The Bold Walkie Talkies
I bought a bunch of these at Burlington’s (not a thrift store find) Oct 2011 for $10.00 – Sold for $15.95- Net Profit after fees, shipping,inventory costs $1.67
Finally selling after 10 months.
I saw these and know that Batman stuff is usually very popular. This product actually had a good selling rank on Amazon at the time of purchase and not a ton of sellers. I could see that these Batman Walkie Talkies should sell between $25 and $10. It didn’t take but a few weeks and the flood gates opened, prices fell.
Score for this Flip: Fail – Lemon
