Nice, A good one I do from time to time is to go to the grocery store and eat the free samples, to save on paying for a meal. I learned this from my parents.

Some of those as are considered illegal, I think. Not to mention dishonest.

"Stealing milk crates"
is ILLEGAL!

"Lying about your age to get a senior discount"
Don't some places ID you? This is rather moronic.

"Stealing cable with a pirate cable box or dish"
This is a CRIME. Also, pirated cable isn't that great, I've heard the reception is crappy.

"Picking flowers out of the park/neighbors yard instead of buying them"
A neighbor threatened to call the cops on me once for doing this in their garden.

"Returning a book after you have read it."

Heh, our family does that all the time.

also you can buy something, anything that is on sale for christmas or something... then a couple weeks after take it backwhen it isnt on sale anymore....(i dont know if that one will work but you can always try!)

i have one that i did at walmart.....

well my printer broke after a month or so so i decided that i will go back to walmart, buy the exact same printer and take it back the next day saying something is wrong with it... the trick is to switch out the broken printer and the good printer so you get the good one and they get the broken one..... that little trick will save you alot of money depending on how much your printer cost...

"Join and re-join AOL under different names to get an infinite number of free hours"

I don't think you could do that, because they would notice the recurring phone number and home address.


"Re-using old/discarded city bus transfers."

Those usually have dates on them.


"Buying a coat at Marshall's or Ross and returning it to Nordstrom for cash or credit"

Can we say, "receipt"?

But yeah, some of those were wild.

"Putting the correct address on the return address of an envelope so it gets sent "back" for lack of postage"

I knew that would be on there

I wonder if it actually works

Oops, I scored 111. I blame my dad for this. He taught be how to be a cheap skate.

Grr he's in India now. He's so cheap he'll only call me once a week for two minutes 50, else it costs loads. Something like that. Grr...

They should put on there "Going to Disney World, bot buying the food, instead use the little paper cups to fill with food, such as ketchup, pickle etc" My dad made us do that one year. He wouldn't pay $100 for a hotdog (or whatever it is) so we lived off pickle tray crap for three days.

I've considered 'Paying for one movie and seeing two' many times. It'd be all too easy!

Wow, that's clever...

Some of those are good ideas... like "Hiding CDs behind the display in a store so that you can come back by on SuperSale Monday and buy them at half-price"
ha ha I would never do that though, I don't have the nerve! I have done some of the stuff, but only the minor things...
