The arb is dead. It's BS and the equivalent of collecting cans.
Yeah but if you take the cans to Michigan....
Or the Coors to TX.

In my younger days I thought about doing this, but from Nevada to California. Price in NV was 33 cents and in CA at the time I believe it was $1.10. Even though I was told it was illegal, I still thought about it. Doing mental math thinking if I could just do half a ton of cans per run, that would be $770 profit - gas cost. I was drooling. What ultimately stopped me was when I found out that a 50 gallon bag of aluminum cans weighs about 10 pounds. I could only MAYBE put 5 or 6 full bags in my car profiting me no more than $40. $40 isn't worth going to jail for or risking a big fine.
This is simply retail or Amazon arbitrage. Tough way to make a living, but great if you have more time than money.
You could apply the same techniques for craigslist or any other large retail platform.
