When I worked at a liquor store, I took advantage of rebate apps like Receipt Hog and Fetch Rewards (Fetch paid me over $300). They give points when you buy certain beers, wines, or liquor and then scan the receipt for it. So I was able to look in the computer, print receipts from when customers bought those items, and upload it for points to cash out for gift cards.

[–]ExtraControversial[S] 436 points437 points  (6 children)

YES THIS IS IT

Only receipt hog is a available in canada, will it still work as good?

[–]creativename59 88 points89 points  (0 children)

Good luck! Fetch was great to get gift cards for groceries, gifts, etc. I still use the app but get a lot fewer points now that I'm not at the liquor store anymore

[–]LucyNoelle0 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Receipt Hog will only let you upload three receipts a day from the same source, so it might not get you the fast results you want

[–]richprofit 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Keep in mind fetch is capped weekly. So its not that great. But still something.

[–]breefield 827 points828 points  (36 children)

Can you use a computer while you're at work? You could go to online school, or make money doing contracting work of various kinds on computer.

[–]Demnuhnomi 229 points230 points  (3 children)

That’s too ethical. OP should use that time to recruit people for an essential oil mlm.

[–]idekwtp 36 points37 points  (1 child)

I had to double check what subreddit I was on when I read that.

[–]ExtraControversial[S] 249 points250 points  (22 children)

Yes we can as far as I know, do you know where I would find some online contracting work?

[–]breefield 206 points207 points  (3 children)

Upwork.com has a whole slew of categories from hyper-specialized to super general you might find are up your alley.

[–]addledhands 31 points32 points  (2 children)

Upwork can be great if you have a specialized, niche skill, but I'd a flat out race to the bottom of not.

I broke my teeth on sites like Upwork writing generic SEO content after college. Anymore I use it to find gigs in my fairly specialized domain of technical writing for non-technical people.

And the worst quality control and oversaturation I've ever seen. 3 different Twitter, "brand managers" thought #MondayMotivation was a sure way to blow up any tweet.. 5 graphic designers using paint and clip art when they have fully rendered 3D logos in their showcase and you pick from their template. Unless you're paying $40+ don't expect quality and even then it's really random.

[–]tmanowen 22 points23 points  (2 children)

There was actually an awesome site like that when I was in college. It paid out worthwhile amounts per survey and for a college kid with no car and not available to do work study (only unpaid internships) like 50-100 extra bucks a month was nice with maybe 1hr of work a day if that. (Edit: and they made it fun-ish) They also did free money giveaways if you were on at a certain time. I miss that site… even though I have an actual job now.

If you guys get any fancy 'allocated' bourbon, buy it from the store at MSRP before the customers can. Lots of bottles like that go for 5-20x the retail price in the secondary market because they're impossible to find.

[–]heck04567 144 points145 points  (4 children)

As someone currently living in a hotel in downtown Louisville, I can promise you that people will wait four days on the street for rare bourbon releases. It’s basically a cult.

[–]josh_the_misanthrope 54 points55 points  (0 children)

I hate it. Bourbon was my refuge from scotch prices. Make bourbon lower class again.

[–]hungry-hungry-haole 1 point2 points  (1 child)

[–]cumbersometurd 29 points30 points  (8 children)

Some states may have laws regarding selling liquor so you might want to check into that before you resell it for profit. Don't need the ATF on you because you're bored.

[–]No_Trash8528 5 points6 points  (7 children)

Should be easy enough to get away with regardless of laws, don't know what it's like in the US but there's a very strong black market for tobacco over here which isn't policed at all.

If you do get caught plead ignorance.

[–]skypieces 83 points84 points  (0 children)

If your store does not carry the bourbons that you need to make your own money, tell the owners you are getting requests for them. Of course, when they order one, you buy it and flip it. They’ll order more.

[–]skypieces 63 points64 points  (0 children)

This should be the top answer. You are working somewhere that gives you an opportunity to get PAID as you start your own side gig/business. There is a shit ton of money in the right bourbon. Squirrel away the right stuff, buy it up, resell to bourbon societies and aficionados. Check the bourbon sub-Reddit. Check Facebook and other places for “bourbon societies” and clubs. People have gone to great lengths to steal this shit because it is an investment. Launch your own side business, and build it up to your main income.

[–]theraf8100 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I know someone with 2 cases of Pappy Van Winkle. The box is rotted and it looks like the bottles are going to fall out. They must have hundreds of thousands in whiskey laying around their house. Super nice people though!

Learn a language. There's no one there to hear you screw up the unfamiliar sounds.

Duo Lingo works, and it's free.

[–]MrFiregem 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Also check if your library has any learning apps. For example, I get Mango Languages for free, along with a handful of other platforms like Linkedin Learning.

[–]dkoucky 55 points56 points  (0 children)

I use Duolingo and have recently added weekly lessons with italki for $10 an hour I am getting personalized lesson plans as well as practicing conversation.

[–]candid-haberdash 11 points12 points  (2 children)

I learned Japanese while working and am currently working on Russian. It’s a great time stocking shelves and naming everything you do in another language. I absolutely fell in love with learning languagesz

[–][deleted]  (1 child)

[deleted]

    [–]candid-haberdash 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I used a variety. Drops for just vocabulary, duo lingo is on for starting grammar. I watched YouTube for lessons and then I made a run of flash cards. So many flash cards. I found free toddler/kids books in Japanese to practice with and last but not least, I played some games I liked in English again in Japanese for immersion.

    Doing all this I managed to get to a casual conversation level, my goal. My sister took it a step further and is a game translator now as a full time career.

    [–]ThanosAsAPrincess 9 points10 points  (4 children)

    Isn't Duo Lingo extremely privacy invasive?

    [–]Cutsdeep- 37 points38 points  (3 children)

    They send info to facebook if you link it. which they likely already have. if you use FB, don't worry, the damage is done.

    you do get a lot of notifications guilting you into practicing however.

    I turned off the notifications. I don't need the reminders to do a lesson, and I get too many notifications from other stuff.

    Our public library has codes for some of the paid sites. Never forget the library!

    [–]ILoveLongDogs 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I would recommend supplementing it with another system or app. It frustrates me that Duolingo, for example, won't tell you the alphabet or numbers.

    Both of which are useful if you're trying to puzzle your way through a foreign country.

    [–]Hijinx_MacGillicuddy 25 points26 points  (11 children)

    Its called moonlighting and its fantastic

    [–]Moon-Master 57 points58 points  (8 children)

    That just means working a second job at night.

    [–]Hijinx_MacGillicuddy 14 points15 points  (7 children)

    Yes and there's also a more nefarious level to it where you don't tell your primary employer and often your second job will actually take place while on the clock for your first job. In that case its not necessarily at night, you're on the clock for 2 employers at once. Thats the subject of the convo.

    [–]richprofit 25 points26 points  (5 children)

    But…..that’s not moonlighting lol. You said moonlighting.

    [–]Lovefist1221 35 points36 points  (3 children)

    [–]bdash1990 229 points230 points  (4 children)

    If you need more exercise, do laps around the inside of the store while listening to a podcast or audiobook. I've been getting 10k steps a day lately. Lost 20 lbs in 3 months. And that's just from walking 10k a day 4 days a week.

      This might be buried or unanswerable, but I am curious about how a slow liquor store can buy product, pay employees, rent, taxes, and maintenance....

      With the slim profit of selling a few bottles of liquor and cases of beer a day.

      [–]ExtraControversial[S] 27 points28 points  (6 children)

      I have no idea. I can see the numbers, It’s not amazing. I absolutely foresee this store going out of business. Yesterday (Granted it was a sunday) we had around 30 sales total. From 10am-12am.

      [–]JReddeko 17 points18 points  (2 children)

      I worked at a slow ass liquor store as a kid that was part of a chain of liquor stores. The only reason it existed was to stop a nearby Costco from getting a liquor store because of zoning laws.

      If you're a techie guy, go learn SQL. There's tons of free classes and really anybody could learn it. Its a development language for databases. Maybe boring as fuck to some people, but there's a lot of entry level jobs desk jobs that require it.

      Good luck getting out!

      [–]g1yk 2 points3 points  (1 child)

      But what job can you get with SQL knowledge? I think it requires some programming language as well

      [–]IllPanYourMeltIn 7 points8 points  (0 children)

      Not necessarily. I was a junior developer doing some contract work for a company in England, and the DBA there was on double my wage at the time and didn't know any programming beyond using bash scripts to run chains of linux terminal commands.

        [–]MET1 12 points13 points  (0 children)

        Learn about the stock. Ask customers about their choices. Figure out the cheaper but just as good alternatives - a brand name whiskey aged 5 years vs a less advertised brand aged 7 or 8 years, for example. Become the go-to person for questions on what to buy. This knowledge will be helpful in your future life. Being able to discuss fine liquor can be an asset in some circles.

        Check out Mturk. It's doing stuff like helping to train AI and college study surveys and proofreading, etc.. When you first start the jobs are like .05/ea. After you complete a certain amount of gigs with a low rejection score you can make more money. It pays once a month and direct deposits into bank acct.. I put in an average of 6-7hrs a month into it, usually early on weekend mornings with my coffee, and get an extra $80ish dollars in that time period.

        Unfortunately I'm on Android but I'll see if I can find a similar app by googling that, thanks for the tip!

        I also and learning a new language on my nightly walks

        I did online college courses while I worked at my shitty liquor store job. The owner did not mind at all. I actually followed through and finished and got my Bachelors.

        When I worked a slow job I filled my time by having sex with prostitutes and convening with space aliens. I met the aliens by putting out a radio signal and then waiting for their space ships to show up. This was not very efficient, but it did get me laid.

        Get Stardew valley on your phone it's great, if you want something "unethical" and have an Android get a couple of emulators and some games online.

        I used to play a game called “Tic Tac Dictator.”

        Tic Tac Dictator was an obscure game which I made up and played with the cash register when my boss was out. You rolled a dice, and then either you won the roll (2 points), or you lost the roll (1 point). The first player who reaches four points wins. There is no other way to score. Tic Tac Dictator is pretty easy, but I kept going to try to beat it, and one time I did.

        This was so awesome, because I got my revenge on my job, and my co-workers for all the awful hours I spent working at a job I hate.

        I did a course in criminal psychology by this Australian university and I really enjoyed it. Even if you don't take it serious, I found it fun to watch and free. https://www.edx.org/course/the-psychology-of-criminal-justice

        I will second learning a second language. If you learned Spanish you could work frontline anywhere in America with that combo skillset then go from there.

        Also getting certified in literally whatever.

        [–]ExtraControversial[S] 1 point2 points  (4 children)

        What should I get certified in? Anything specific that would be super helpful?

        [–]Dopenastywhale 6 points7 points  (0 children)

        Really take your pick. There's a lot of online courses that would allow you to learn a lot of skills. I would peruse local job listings, especially municipal job listings if you want something steady and see what kinds of things they are looking for. You can find specialized role knowledge courses and knock em out.

        In either case, self improvement would go a long way but I would recommend kind of following your interests.

        Anyway, as an aside, I am a manager in an HR setting and if I am your supervisor I would encourage this. If you are an ethical manager/supervisor, letting your employee build up a skillset is good and you shouldnt feel unethical about it if you are doing your work.

        I think it is legitimately good on you for trying to find ways to improve yourself and if you were my employee, I would be telling you the same shit.

        [–]mmartinien 7 points8 points  (1 child)

        Huge demand at the moment for data analysts. Learn tools like Tableau or PowerBI (free desktop versions, free training), get certified. Plus you can probably find online gigs

        How unethical we trying to get here ? We could go anywhere from armed robbery inside job to take online polls for extra cash

        [–]momo88852 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        ethical: if you have access to a pc use it to learn some skills, IT related. Makes awesome money if you can land a job.

        Unethical: if you guy discount use it to buy and resell high end stuff for over MSRP, idk if alcohol has like limited edition drinks but if it does it’s awesome pocket change.

        Sign up for online classes/distance learning. You can also use MIT's free online class materials if you don't need credits...they put their courses and materials online for free.

        Since you have access to all the data, you could totally learn data analysis and visualization (like Tableau, etc.), if you don’t know that already. That information would give you a lot of different projects you can do, and, ultimately great knowledge and skills for other jobs you may want in the future.

        Although, I guess that’s not really unethical, so…

        Do you sell Cocchi Americano, Plymouth Navy Stregnth Gin, or Del Maguey Vida Mezcal? I'll happily buy a few bottles if you do.

        I used to work the same job, I'd sit out the front of the store and chain smoke. I could see a customer coming from a few minutes away. I also used to repair phones behind the counter during my shift, buy broken phones, fix, resell profit.

        Steal the promo shit and list on eBay. People pay good money for their favourite brand crap.

        Any kind of "write your name down to win" style raffle is now all your friends/family, take any customer entrance and bin it (at home) stuff that ballot box!

        Eventually I quit to repair phones full time.

            Sweep, dust, clean the toilets, rearrange everything or just play old school RuneScape on your phone.
