Grind Money

How One Guy Made $5 Million on Amazon

Mike Rezendes, or Reezy Resells, is the man to know and follow if you want to make money on the internet. An early pioneer of the retail arbitrage movement—where sellers look for price discrepancies between items on discount and what they currently retail for on Amazon or eBay—Rezendes claims to have generated $5 million in sales over 15 years.

The energetic but focused entrepreneur visited the ONE37pm office and spilled his flip life story. From hustling from free games at his childhood arcade to sorting and selling 44,000 pounds of books, Rezendes is the expert of note.

ONE37pm: So, when did you start flipping?

Mike Rezendes: I started a little over 15 years ago, but I started reselling when I was a kid, just like selling candy at school or running little scams at the arcade close to where I lived. I grew up by the Boardwalk in Santa Cruz, California, which is a free-admission amusement park. But if you don’t have any money, as I did, you can’t have any fun. You can literally hear the money, but you can’t have any fun. So you start like, “Hey, this game ate my quarter.” And then that turns into them giving you free games to leave them alone. And then I’m like, well, I got 80 credits on this game, let me sell it to this kid for ten bucks.

I got older. I sold a little bit of weed, which believe it or not, taught me an immense amount about business. There are people on the street that know way more than people with an MBA, and they don’t even know it, you know. The streets are talking. Then, eBay was running commercials on TV. My little brothers started messing with it first. I was 15, right before I had my first kid. I had a kid when I was 16, and I’ve lived on my own since then. But I remember we sold everything my mom would let us sell, including a Gateway PC that my mom still hadn’t paid back. Then we sold our Nintendo and all the games and all the controllers in a pile and like we got some money, but I saw that the guy who bought it was a video game guy. He had just sold a game system with no games, only the cables. That’s when we learned about breaking bulk. You can make more if you sell everything individually or the inverse—you can buy piles of stuff and then sell it separately.

So we just kept buying lots off of eBay, breaking them down and then putting them in big bundles—just like the one we sold. We learned from our own mistakes. I would occasionally see people scanning books in thrift stores—like a cart full of books. So much that you think they work there and they’re putting them out for sale. But no, they’re buying them. And I’m like, “They’re making money. No one’s buying that many books.” And then I see that they’re using a barcode scanner. So I started researching it. That’s how I got into reselling full time: books.

Books are very plentiful. It’s easy to systemize. You have software that tells you what it is worth. AIt’s different than finding a random thing at a thrift store or a garage sale because you can scale it. You can scan one barcode a second so you can go into a store and scan a thousand books in a thousand seconds.

<code><p class = "instagram-media"></p></code>

On your Instagram, you have a gigantic warehouse of books. Is that buying big lots to hope there is a gem hidden inside?

Rezendes: We just started this model because we don’t have a lot of time to run around anymore, and it’s just more systemizable, especially with employees. They can come to the warehouse and work. We buy either from thrift stores or from paper recyclers or salvage, and we get it by the pound, and then we scan everything—like 44,000 books per truckload—and we’ll process it in about a week and then take out what we can sell on Amazon. We take what we can and later try to squeeze the shit out of it for every penny. The way I look at the business of like trying to extract more profit out of a bulk model. This is a new business model for me because previously I did all cherry-picking, which is going around to different stores and finding the best items. So this is a lot different, and we’re more independent.

Where’s the best place for new resellers to start flipping items for a profit?

Rezendes: So the best place to start reselling is probably eBay because it’s the easiest to understand because you can sell a large variety of goods there. Whereas Amazon, you need like a whole market. To sell an item, you have to create a product detail page on Amazon, which takes a half-hour, and you need good images and copy and bullet points and all these things that convert people to buy it. And so just put it on eBay. The best way to get started by far is to shop your house. Go through the stuff that you have in your home already that you don’t want any more or need or think you need, but you don’t, things you haven’t touched it in six months. You might have like birthday gifts or wedding gifts or books or CDs and DVDs. You don’t need your CDs and DVDs anymore—copy them to your computer and sell them.

<code><p class = "instagram-media"></p></code>

What’s the most significant contributor to your overall success in reselling?

Rezendes: Not worrying about what other people think. I’m trying to be as nice as possible to everybody while also working my ass off. I might work so hard that some people are like, “I can’t handle this guy.” But I’m not like hurting you. If you’re not willing to put in the work, then you can’t compete. Be smart, be nice and be kind. Be competitive. Show up early. Go every single day and make relationships. Remember all of the store employees’ names. Remember their kids’ names. Keep a notebook of this stuff, order lunch for the shop, bring them gift cards, bring them coffee and donuts. It’s not very hard to stand out and become much more than a customer. And when people like you, they want you to win. So if you want to get backroom access at the thrift store, which you do so you can go through the stuff before it gets put out, it’s not going to happen if they don’t like you. So how can you make them like you? And that’s what you need to do.

Reezy Resells

If you’re not willing to put in the work, then you can’t compete. Be smart, be nice and kind. Be competitive. Show up early.

Is there anything I didn’t hit that you want to make sure we note?

Rezendes: If anybody wants to learn about reselling on Amazon or eBay, go to my website, reezyresells.com, and pick up my free Intro to Amazon course. It will take you like four hours to go through. And if you make it through that, then we can talk.

Streaming Price Guide: Comparing Netflix, Hulu, Apple TV+, Disney+ & More

Gone are the days of cable TV and recording your favorite shows with DVR. Blu-ray movies and DVDs have lost their spots on our TV stands and instead have been replaced with candles and vinyls, which oddly, have never gone out of style. In addition to music streaming subscriptions, movie and TV streaming services are just more bills you’re forced to add to your monthly spending as a form of entertainment and self-care. 

A streaming service that bundles together our favorite networks and streaming platforms would be ideal, but that, unfortunately, doesn’t exist. When Disney announced its Disney+ streaming service in April (it debuts in November), its low monthly payment combined with more networks than other streaming services, immediately put Disney+ ahead of the curve. We’ve gathered U.S. prices of the nine main streaming services—inspired by this tweet from Jon Erlichman—and laid out what they do and do not offer.

This monthly cost rundown, in no particular order, will help you figure out what to keep, what to ditch and what you’d be missing out on if you don’t dole out the dough.

Fun fact: Combined, all nine services would cost you roughly $90 every month. 

1. Netflix // Costs $12.99 for ad-free version
<code>": "<iframe width=\"560\" height=\"315\" src=\"https://www.youtube.com/embed/u-dmLQv9hBk\" frameborder=\"0\" allow=\"accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture\" allowfullscreen></iframe>", "hed": "", "subhed": "", "buttonText": "", "buttonUrl": "", "dropCase": false, "mediaId": null, "jwplayer": ""</code>

Netflix is arguably the biggest player in the game when it comes to content and original programming, but it does take longer for shows and movies to reach Netflix. You can anticipate seeing a series land on Netflix anywhere between three months and a year after its initial airing or debut on the big screen. If you’re a Disney fan, you can anticipate seeing less of those movies on Netflix in the near future, and you can thank Disney’s partnership with Hulu for that.

Known for: Netflix Originals, Orange is the New Black, When They See Us, Stranger Things, 13 Reasons Why, Dear White People, Narcos, House of Cards, The Crown, Shameless (a season after it airs on Showtime) and international shows and films.

2. Apple TV+ // Costs $4.99 for ad-free version
<code><p class = "twitter-tweet"></p></code>

Apple TV+ is an upcoming video subscription service that will feature Apple original content only. Basically, you won’t find older and licensed TV shows and movies on this app. Apple announced Apple TV+ in March and it launches in November.

Known for: Original Apple TV+ content

3. Disney+ // Costs $6.99 for ad-free version
<code><p class = "twitter-tweet"></p></code>

Disney+ will debut in the U.S. on November 12. While we can’t really compare it to other streaming services yet, it is safe to assume that this will be a popular subscription among Americans. Disney owns and has partnerships with several streaming services already, and for the first time, a subscription will offer every Disney Channel Original Movie that before could not be found on other platforms. 

Known for: Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic

4. Hulu // Costs $11.99 for ad-free version
Hulu

Hulu’s business model focuses primarily on streaming new TV shows and original content rather than movies and documentaries. The streaming service allows users early access to TV shows from multiple traditional networks. It usually takes a week, at most, for shows to arrive on Hulu after they’ve aired. Sometimes, it only takes a day. Hulu is now also heavily pushing live sports. 

Known for: Hulu Originals, Love Island (UK), The Handmaid’s Tale, The Act, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Bachelor in Paradise, 90 Day Fiancé, Power

5. HBO Now // Costs $14.99 for ad-free version
HBO

HBO Now is perfect for anyone who is a consumer of HBO content, including sports, TV series, movies and documentaries. The service allows users to stream big premieres as they air on TV. 

Known for: Game of Thrones, Ballers, Big Little Lies, Insecure, A Black Lady Sketch Show, True Blood, Crazy Rich Asians, Bohemian Rhapsody, A Star Is Born and Vice News

6. Prime // Costs $8.99 for ad-free version
Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video is included in the Prime package and available exclusively through the Prime membership. The services grant members access to thousands of Prime Video titles at no additional cost. Amazon Original Movies and Prime Original series are just some of the offers through the platform as well as mobile downloads for offline viewing of select content.

Known for: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Grand Tour and Transparent, Manchester by the Sea, The Salesman, The Big Sick, The Dressmaker, Paterson, The Lost City of Z, The Wall, Human Flow and Landline

7. Showtime // Costs $10.99 for ad-free version
Showtime

Showtime offers original series, hit movies, live TV, sports and more. The subscription is best for people who want to stream Showtime content only, as it is more affordable to have it as an add-on to another streaming service rather than a standalone service. The network is also offered through Amazon Prime, Apple TV and Hulu as an add-on. 

Known for: Shameless, Twin Peaks: The Return, Billions, The Affair, Penny Dreadful, Dexter, and Homeland

8. Starz // Costs $8.99 for ad-free version
Starz

Like HBO and Showtime, Starz network has its own TV subscription. A subscription allows users access to the channel’s catalog of movies, documentaries and original programming. In 2016, Starz Encore was bundled into the service and as a result, left Starz with a library of older and classic movies in addition to top hits right from the theater.

Known for: Outlander, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Power, American God, Magic City, The Bernie Mac Show, Different Strokes, The Jeffersons and Good Times

9. CBS All Access // Costs $9.99 for ad-free version
CBS

CBS All Access is the best way to stream your local CBS affiliate network. The service also offers exclusive high-production TV shows that you can’t find anywhere else and includes thousands of episodes of older seasons as well. While you can watch CBS shows online for free, they can only be viewed from a web browser and could take up to five days for new shows to air on your mobile device. The major plus of this subscription is having access to all the older episodes in the CBS vault-like Big Brother and the Star Trek series. 

Known for: Big Brother, The Big Bang Theory, Survivor, Criminal Minds, 60 Minutes, I Love Lucy, Twin Peaks, Cheers, Wings, Taxi and Star Trek

Russell Wilson Gave All of His Linemen Stock in Amazon

After signing a 4-year, $140M contract—a deal that made him the highest paid player in the NFL—QB Russell Wilson wanted to say “thank you” to his offensive line for keeping him healthy long enough to secure the bag. But instead of a fancy watch or a pair of Wranglers—sorry Brett Favre—Wilson gave each lineman something he thought would have “a lasting impact” on them and their families: $12,000 of Amazon stock.

“You sacrifice your physical and mental well-being to protect me, which in turn allows me to provide and care for my family,” Wilson wrote his linemen in individual letters, according to TMZ. “This does not go unnoticed and it is never forgotten.” He ended the letter with “You have invested in my life … this is my investment in yours.”

Wilson hopes that his gift will encourage his teammates to start thinking about the long game. “The memories on the field will last forever,” he wrote, “but we have to constantly prepare for life after football.” Wilson shared that one of the ways he plans for his post-playing days is by investing in companies that will “grow and change the world,” like Amazon.
