While we provide a list of online arbitrage deals of profitable products to resell via Amazon FBA, we realize that many of our visitors use these deals to hopefully lead them to more deals. For instance, if we list a clothing item, we suggest looking at other sizes and/or colors to see if they are profitable. We also recommend scrolling down on the product pages to see similar products and/or “Guest also bought” product recommendations.

Our virtual assistants (VAs) search various online stores, and we are here to share with you the top online retail stores that they personally use for sourcing online arbitrage (OA) deals – those products with a minimum 50% return on investment (ROI), at least $5.00 in profit and/or are ranking in the top 5% of their category on Amazon. The tool we use to determine these metrics is Revseller (it’s a browser extension that automatically calculates the data right on the Amazon page).

Online Shopping Tips To Save Money

Besides watching weekly sales ads and taking advantage of online arbitrage deals, there are ways to save even more money on your purchases, including coupons, discounted gift cards, and receiving cashback.


Many websites will show you their current coupon codes right on their homepage. Look at the very top or very bottom of the screen for offers. Other websites may have a link to a page entitled “Coupons” or “Offers”. If there is not a coupon available on the website, but there is a form field at checkout for a coupon code, search Google for available coupon codes or visit your favorite cashback or loyalty site (more on this below).

Discount Gift Cards

If you know where you plan to shop, you can buy gift cards at less than face value at the following websites:


There are several online websites, apps, and browser extensions that offer cashback on your purchases from various stores. Our favorite is Rakuten (formerly known as Ebates). Cashback and loyalty websites are more likely to have legitimate coupon codes listed since they are getting paid commission by the merchants to promote them. They then split the commission with you, the user, which is the “cash back” or rewards points.

There are also credit cards that offer cashback or rewards for every purchase. You can “double-dip” cashback offers this way!
