A MAN has revealed that he clocked a bargain buy in Costco and cleared the shelves, making himself a whopping £6,000 in profit.
He took to TikTok to open up about his side hustle and to explain just how he did it.
Posting under the username @aftermarketarbitrage, the man claimed that he bought 300 Silentnight electric blankets, for just £14 each, from wholesaler Costco.
But when he looked on Amazon, he confirmed that he saw that they were being sold for £75 each.
As a result, the man, who claims to be the UK’s number one for Amazon FBA and earning money online, revealed that he cleared the shelves of the blankets.
He explained that he then sold them online for £75 each, making him a hefty profit.
