What is a Thrifty Lemon Alert (TLA)? A TLA is a product that we have “flipped” on Amazon for a poor or NO profit.
Vicks 1.0 Gallon Cool Mist Humidifier
I bought this game at Salvation Army for $11.00 – Sold for $31.49- Net Profit after fees, shipping,inventory costs $2.94
3 days to sell
I picked up this Humidifier because it was brand new. Humidifiers usually sell for a good profit. I forgot to enter the OS fee and extra shipping costs into my calculations. Silly because Profit Bandit makes this super simple.
Score for this Flip: Fail – Lemon
Not one of my “finer scouting moments”….
Plus – If I had looked at CamelCamelCamel.com I would have seen that the pricing was not ever going to be “Great”!
